Post your manga recs! Anonymous 3115
And write a summary about it or discuss
Inugamihime ni kuchizuke is my first recommendation. It's a very very cute manga about 20 chapters long with really nice art and romance. It also has a wolf girl and cool fight scenes + husbando material, Worth the read
here is another image but COLORED
My next rec is Vinland Saga, a seinen manga based on Vikings with a lot of historical accuracy and a sick revenge plot. HIGHLY rec
it's not like i li…
Gantz is about dead people who fight aliens. The art is sick and the characters are hilariously terrible to one another. Also Izumi is my husband.
Goblin slayer is one of my favorite mangas and my first recommendation. It is fantasy story about uh, i guess a men who slays goblins.
It is bloody but i really like it.
love my action mangas.
My second would be Dorohedoro, but i did not finished reading it.
So it will be great teacher Onizuka
I know not really a unknown, but i love it
It is about a man who wants to be a teacher because of the young girls and holidays. He gets the most terrible class he could get and trys to helps them.
I am bad at summarys.
I like the art style!
I also like fantasy manga, I feel like Japanese people have an interesting take on Western fantasy genres. If you enjoy dungeon-themed/monster-slaying manga, maybe you'd also like Dungeon Meshi? It's a lot more light-hearted, though, I'd say it's a pretty fun read.
Alichino is one that I remember reading as a teenager and thinking that the art style was so, so gorgeous. The plot was gothic nonsense but wow the eye candy. For some reason I don't think it was ever finished, though? It really makes me wonder what happened to the artist/writer.
seconding your post, Alichino was so beautiful to look at, but the plot really felt flat and nonsensical, lol. I think it was abandoned after 3 volumes, but they were so nice to collect because they had a more luxurious design with beautiful dust covers and color illustrations.
oh, no, anon, there's only 26 chapters?? i got through this in a single sitting. what do you read while you're waiting for the next one to come out?
I really recommend the manga Ran to Haiiro no Sekai (Ran and the Grey World). It's a cute story about a little witch girl who can transform to look older and really wants to learn how to fly so she's always getting in trouble, and one day she meets this rich CEO guy or something and he falls in love with her which is really creepy because she's 10 and he's 30 but whatever I'm getting off track. This is where the story really starts to gain momentum and soon Ran has to help fight some baddies who try to destroy her village… I don't know if I did a good job summarizing that but I would like to add it has a lot of worldbuilding which I love and there's romance (and not just between the little girl and the pedo) and the art is so cool. And there are so so many cool characters, pic related Ran's wacky mom.
I will give it a try thank you ano.
Yes you are right, i can be very well done or sometimes it ends more or less in stereotypes.
Any recs for good horror mangas? I'm basic and love Junji Ito but I've already read all of his stuff.
Not manga, but Black Hole by Charles Burns is one of the better graphic novels in the horror genre.
The author apparently broke her hand so it got put on hiatus but never picked back up. She's still active as an illustrator though and has done covers for LNs as recently as 2014, pic related.
Is Katawa Shoujo worth a shot?
Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou is my favorite manga. It's a slice of life in a post-apocalyptic setting about an android girl who runs a small cafe out of her home in the middle of nowhere, who enjoys riding on her scooter through the beautiful countryside.
I started reading Shirley (by the same author who wrote Emma: A Victorian Romance) and it's really cute and comfy. Makes me want to settle down with another lady and just do cute lady activities with her and help out around the house. Having a daughter or something would be nice, too.
Rojica to Rakkasei…
Rojica to Rakkasei has been a good read so far. It's about a girl and her friends' little adventures. I don't want to give too much away, but it gives me serious Kaiba vibes.
A strange manga about a sociopath-like guy taking in a bug girl
A cute manga about a girl living in a house with youkai. The author's other work, Love Roma is pretty good too. The art takes some getting used to but I like how he does paneling.
A really funny shoujo about an ex-delinquent girl going to school. By the same author as Nozaki-kun.
Aono-kun ni Sawaritai kara Shinitai
Another bizarre manga about a girl and her ghost bf.
A bunch of short stories, I liked the art a lot in this one. Unfortunately the author passed away.
Cute and funny manga about an otaku and fujo couple.
Saike Mata Shite mo
I usually don't like shounen but this one is pretty good, it's carried entirely by the MC though.
Boku to Kimi no Taisetsu na Hanashi
Another cute shoujo manga, ending my dump here hopefully someone gets something out of this
did it finish before the author died?
I'd recommend reading
Shuzo Oshimi - Happiness, Flowers of Evil
The first one is about vampires, the other is a coming to age story.
Sui Ishida - Tokyo Ghoul/Tokyo Ghoul:Re
It gets too shounen-y in some parts but overall good story.
Junji Ito - Black Paradox
A couple of people who met up on a suicide pact website and than a lot of strange things occur when they meet up to actually go through with it together.
Kuraishi, Yuu - Apocalypse no toride
Zombies, I feel like the ending is a bit rushed
Masaya Hokazono - Freak Island (Very gory)
A boat filled with students ends up on an island that hosts a group of weird ass mutant people.
Saku Nonomura - Otonari Complex
Typical childhood romance story however this involves a girl who looks like a guy.
Men disgust me. Does anyone have non-yuri manga recs where all the characters are female?
Puella Magi Madoka Magica is an anime, not a manga, but there are no human men except for a cameo figure as the dad and another cameo featuring a group of men who are lampshaded as disgusting men.
Made in Abyss is good, I'd recommend watching the anime first then picking up the manga at chapter 24. Simply because the anime seems like it corresponded to those dull chapters where the lore and stuff is set up in it's most basic sense ( but don't let that make you think the show is boring, it's anything bet ).
It's like Ghibli meets Berserk in my opinion.
To expand on my previous point, I personally find early chapters of manga tedious but they become enjoyable when animated.
