Like ampzz's anime suggestion thread, I am going to try to create an organized place for manga suggestions. (Going to copy and paste from his op as well)

Just so that this doesn't turn into a complete spam-fest of people saying stuff along the lines of, "Read [insert manga title] because I think it's good!," we shall run through a few things to keep this nice and civilized without the likelihood of this turning into a chat room just between one to three people...

If you are after an manga suggestion, please state a few things:
  1. The genre of manga you want to read or general description of what you want; in saying this it isn't a necessity but it makes it easier for people to offer suggestions.
  2. Give examples of similar manga you may have seen. If you have a MyAnimeList or Mangaupdates account with a few titles of what you've seen already, the suggestion process will be a lot easier and more efficient for all of us.
  3. Ask for a few suggestions at a time that way you will have a decent backlog of manga to read whenever you finish off one particular title and read another.

If you are offering suggestions to particular users:
  1. Break up your suggestion so that similar manga are grouped together, or if they're after multiple genre requests, group them into their respective labels. Some people prefer being able to organize their plan-to-read lists by reading one genre at a time.
  2. Give your own short take on the manga titles. The description doesn't need to be a long, even a few words is better than nothing at all.
  3. Take into consideration of which manga they've listed whether it is a title they already read or a comparative title they're after.
  4. Offer a few manga titles at a time, even if they are one-shots or spin-offs
  5. Please link to either MAL or mangaupdates, when adding links, to avoid linking to actual releases and breaking forum rules.
    Just keep these in mind when helping another person figure out which manga they want to read.


In addition, to stop repeat request and allow easier referencing, I will try to update the op with each request and the answers to each request. If someone wants to help in the process, feel free to do so. (May be removed in the future)

That's about it, enjoy making requests and/or suggestions as there are quite a few manga lovers out there who would love to offer their opinions on what manga people might not have seen or known about, which are priceless or just simply skipped out completely due of its obscurity, myself included.

ampzz approved.

Honestly though, I'm having a very rough time trying to find anything new or interesting that I might have passed on quite a while ago so I might as well be the first to do a recommendation request.

What genre I'm after:
Action-ish minus the adventure boringness unless it's actually compelling.

What I'm looking for:
Something along the lines of Shingeki no Kyojin.

What I've read before:
Just going to skim through a few titles I've read/currently reading -
  1. Ares
  2. Berserk
  3. Claymore
  4. Id
  5. Shin Angyo Onshi
  6. Superior
  7. Übel Blatt
  8. Vagabond

I had a rough list worked up, but Bliss gave me an idea(thanks)

If you like things like Naruto/Bleach/One Piece, then try manga like Fairy Tail, Beelzebub and Rave

If you like more action violent Manga, Try something like Vagabond, Gantz or Berserk

If you want something like comedy, then maybe Yotsuba&

Or if you just want like a slice of life kind of manga, maybe Azu Manga Daioh

Have you read Akame Ga Kiru yet?
http://myanimelist.net/manga.php?id=25132

Synopsis makes you think that this is a pretty light-hearted manga, you'll soon find out otherwise, this is no-where near the standard action-adventure-fantasies to kill time with =D

Yep, been reading since the initial release and even before it started being translated since it seemed interesting.

What about Psyren? It's the last only-action manga I would know about
http://myanimelist.net/manga/3438/Psyren
It's with pretty cool protagonist as well as supportive cast and the plot is not oh-friggin-fuckin-god-so-awesome but still great nevertheless, makes you feel good

Ah, I guess I should have said a bit more.

I have seen hundreds upon hundreds of manga, my MAL account doesn't even begin to show how much stuff I've read.
This might actually be incentive to finally get both sides of my lists completed.

This isn't even a complete list:

Welcome back nii-nii.

@ampzz, I'm bored, so lets see how obscure is the stuff I recommend
siesta - one of the few action shoujos that I approve of (Not super epic like what you want though)
Extra Existence - a random manga written by the guy who wrote Ubel Blatt (only 1 chap is scanlated)
Hayate x Blade - a manga that talks about sword fighting, but it mostly focuses on comedy...
Judas - one of SnO's author's earlier works.. Not as good as Watashi no Messiah-sama, but it is decent series with more talks about religion and wondering who is right.

I'll go through more of my list later.

I think this topic deserves to be stickied, just like the Anime Suggestion thread. Crowdsourced opinion seemed to work for that thread, too~!

Currently looking into jousei drama/comedy/romance. Some titles I've read that fall into this include:
  1. Chihayafuru
  2. Kuragehime
  3. Paradise Kiss
  4. Real Clothes


I haven't read that much in this demographic, but it's one I'd like to explore more of.

@Mogs
Can't say much about it since the Synopsis has it all. It's the first, only and probably last Josei I've finished reading. Really messing up your emotions and controlling them, pretty cool stuff =p

Ah, right, I've been meaning to read the manga for that. Thanks a bunch for the reminder! :P

Gantz.

Just copying the synopsis here:

"Thought your life was bad? Sometimes, death is worse. There is no salvation, peace, nor god waiting to receive you into their care. But wait, a god? Maybe you are talking about that big black ball stuck in the room with you. Now you are thrown into a game, fighting green aliens and robot monsters for the chance to survive.

A word of warning: Gantz is not for the faint-hearted, but neither is it as simple as it looks. Gore, rape and violence is rampant, as are portrayals of greed, violence, and all the ugliness that one sees in society today."

One of the best seinen manga imo.

This is not a place where you're supposed to link your manga list unless as an example to show what you have read before so people can actually help to recommend stuff which you might not have seen before.


Anyway, back to the purpose of this thread -

I'm after a manga that is as interesting as Akumetsu was.
Not fussed on a particular genre of the manga but I'm just after something that I may have missed (or have read before but forgot the title of it) during my years of manga reading thus far.
