    Hi tempers,

    So far I'm digging these types of mangas at the moment:

    History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi
    Beelzebub
    Freezing (Currently reading)
    Katekyo Hitman Reborn! (I don't understand why people like this, so far I've read up to chapter 49)


    I already am up to date with Naruto and Bleach (I only read these because it's a love/hate relationship with fillers). I've got Fairy Tail and Air Gear on the next to read however I'm not a fan of the One Piece art style.

    So can anyone recommend me something similar to the first three mangas I've listed? It be much appreciated. I have looked at the essential manga and it doesn't quite help me.

    Judging by your tastes I see you like generic and/or mainstream anime, so:
    Inuyasha
    Fullmetal Alchemist

    One Piece art style changes and you get used to it once you read more into it.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    Give it a chance, you shouldn't miss a great storyline for something like that.

    Well you should really finish up on what you're reading and get started on Fairy Tail; it's more awesome than other mainstream manga's IMO, with the exception on One Piece however because i haven't read the manga but anime is quite awesome and most of the time the manga counter-part is better.


    Some others you may be interested in:

    Full Metal Alchemist
    Rurouni Kenshin (Samurai X, The wandering samurai)
    Soul-Eater

    One Piece, Naruto (IMO you'd have to read all of them), Soul Eater and Fairy Tale

    Yes I should have listed all the manga I've read (and anime I've seen). I do apologise for that! What I have read/seen are (besides the earlier list):

    Rurouni Kenshin
    Soul Eater
    FMP (all of it of the anime, is there more manga to it?)
    Code Geass
    D. Gray man
    High School of the Dead
    Angel Beats
    Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya
    Law of Ueki
    Full Metal Alchemist (both new and old)

    There are more but I can't remember all of them so far. I'll try getting into Fairytail, Inuyasha, One Piece later because I really struggle to get used to the art style. It's like trying to appreciate the earlier horror movies compared to the modern horror including remakes.
    The main stream stuff I think it's just mere boredom I watch/read because since there's so many of them compared to the others.
    However at the moment I'm more drawn to similar genres like the Freezing and History's Strongest. I appreciate the feedback so far. Making a list of the ones I haven't read [​IMG] Mind you I have a lot of free time at the moment and I tend to read most in one go or so (holidays lol)

    Oh and Reborn is horrible, it's like the first 100 chapters are fillers. Even when you get to the main arcs, they are a boring, slow paced mess.

    Manga and anime both come out weekly for series like Bleach, but it takes 3-4 chapters to make an episode. When they run out of chapters, they have to make stuff up until the manga catches up.

    Ah thanks for that explanation. I'm more happy to wait for the real story. Now it made me think, fillers in a manga/anime are like side quests to a RPG LOL

    lolwut. How can a manga have fillers?...

    Anyway, the action in Hitman Reborn only starts at chapter 62. The first 61 chapters are mostly comedy/school life, which are mainly to introduce the characters.
    I highly suggest you to continue reading it, I find the story to be very uniqe (and amazingly good) to be honest.

Dont flame me now, i just find it ignorant of people that isnt willing to read other than the top 10 shounen mangas)
