    Well hi,

    since I got a manga reader for my iphone I started reading Manga, mostly did not do because i have problems recognizing whats drawn in the pictures.
    I was allways Anime fan and now I finaly got more or less into Manga, problem is still some mangas are hard to read for me and I tend to be spoiled about what i read and what not ^^


    Now I need recommendations,

    I am currently reading and loving
    Gantz, Beelzebub and Prunus Girl


    I like funny romantic manga like Prunus Girl (don't mind if its trap manga or not)
    Science fiction with action like Gantz is great too
    and fighting like Beelzebub needs "fantasy" elements same with Blach, only like it because of the whole death god thing. (not watching bleach frequently any more)


    P.S. just recently watched MM! and i was thinking about reading the Manga cuz the anime ended so bad ... question is, is there any difference in the manga ?

    I was gonna say GANTZ!
    But you read that already..
    Anyway, I just got into manga, also because of my animé [​IMG]

    What manga reader do you use?

    Anyway, Beserk looks pretty fun so far [​IMG]

    Well, I will ALWAYS recommend Gurren Lagann in any media form.

    If you're OK with western graphic novels, the Scott Pilgrim series is fucking amazing.

    I just got done reading .hack//Legend of the Twilight. It was OK.

    If you want something romantic....

    My girlfriend just got done reading Pixie Pop...she said it was really cute.

    You can easily find good mangas by adding putting the name of a female sex organ followed by slave or girl.

    For example: Anal slave

    Berserk is really good up until the Hawk of the Millennium Empire Arc - after that it just loses its charm, for various reasons.

    I'd recommend it nonetheless.

    First of all, by your rule, it would be Anus Slave.

    Secondly, the anus isn't really a sex organ, despite being used for it sometimes [​IMG]

    Should have just wrote "orifice"

    I use Manga MF , no clue if one of the others is better but i like it pretty much.

    Well i watch Naruto as Anime (not frequently at all especially due to all those stupid filler) and I really would not want to read it as a Manga.
    For One Pice ... I think I am the only one who completely dislikes it for drawing style AND story, because if this I am not reading Fairy Tale
    thanks anyway.

    Hmm well yeah I was thinking about at least read the first few chapter of Berserk cuz a Friend of mine is a Hardcore fan but he is allways pissed that it takes years for a new chapter to arrive which would suck bad if i come to like it [​IMG]


    Gurren Lagann hmm ok I heard that name often but never read or whatched anything off it that might be something I should at least try once.
    Western Grafik ... well no ... oO maybe if the story is good but I am not really into something like that (even thaught drawing is not all in a Manga)

    Yeah I watched all .Hack Anime ^^


    Oh yeah i did start to read Pretty Face some month ago when i did not have my manga reader and befoer onemanga went down ... was one of my "first" trys to get into Manga ... completely forgot about that, well yeah its good i will load it to my phone right now ^^


    -----


    to add something ... when i was without work i was hardcore anime nerd so best would be recommendations of Manga that have no Anime to it or shortened or whatever ^^

    P.S. @shlong
    well yeah thats nice and all BUT if i would want to have the "top" rated manga i could just get me the top 100 in the manga reader, but like Fairy Tale which is pretty hich in the ranks there are enough Manga that do not even barely fit to my taste that are high rated by others thats why i wrote what i more or less like

    Oh yeah, didn't recommend that because I still have to buy it. Yes, I'll buy the Gurren-Lagann manga. It DESERVES my money [​IMG]

    Just like I'll buy Gantz, even if I've already read it all up to the latest chapter [​IMG]

    That.
    And @ OP, yea, I use Manga MF too, since it's the only one where you dont need a subscription or anything.

    Oh btw, when do new Gantz chapters come out? If anyone knows..

    One Piece is my favorite manga of all time. I couldn't recommended t more. The Gurren Lagann manga is also excellent like the previous posters have said. Here's a list of manga you should also read:

    Full Metal Alchemist
    Beelzebub
    Psyren
    Astro Boy (Unless you live in an area that sells it, you'll almost surely have to import it, but it's worth it)
    Dragon Ball
    Naruto
