Re-read Madness by Kairi Shimotsuki the other day and recalled that I didn't see much press for it. It has a yaoi angle that is craftily handled as almost coincidental because it's buried in an actual plot that's heavy on sci-fi, killing, and blood that has nothing to do with yaoi angst. And there's a kickass babe instead of an absent or marginalized female presence like in some yaoi manga. It's a post-apocalyptic story about a priest, a murderous guy, and his murderous comrades, and these are the good guys. And the clothes are really cool. It's a quick 2-volume read.

Some pretty unforgetable manga I've read are ...

Watashitachi no Shiawase na Jikan: A compelling story about a pianist who had attempted suicide several times. She begins going on trips with her aunt ( a nun ) to a prison where murderers have been given the max sentence. There she meets a boy who, like her , has a painful and violent past. Together they learn how it feels to really want to live. This is a short series and can be finished in just a few hours.
psychological, drama, romance, tragedy

Annarasumanara: This is a unique manhwa webcomic about a girl who is financially troubled and is forced to grow up quickly in order to support herself and sister. One day she comes across an abandoned amusement park from her memories and is met by a strange magician. Ultimately she must choose to follow the practical path of a responsible adult, or venture off into a world she thought only existed in her dreams. It really makes you question your own belief in magic. The story is beautifully executed and is one of my favorites.
drama, romance, psychological, mystery

The links take you straight to a source where you can start reading. I'm glad I was able to share these. They're definately not your typical shojous, but I'm hoping you'll appreciate them for the masterpieces they are!

Yes someone posted Akagami no Shirayukihime!

Hanatsukihime is a fantasy-based tragedy about a 15 year old who's mother made a deal with the devil to save her when she was a stillborn infant. the catch is that the demon gets to eat her when she turns 16.

Cat Street follows a traumatized child actress, now teenager (who spent years locked away in her room), that must overcome the leaps and bounds of a modern society as well as catching up on school and returning to the stage.

1/2 Prince is another one that revolves around a futuristic setting involving an RPG game. The main character (girl) takes on the role of a male in the game, causing all sorts of interesting events.

I'd also highly recommend the one-shots Stray Dog and Half & Half.

I just read both the manga and manhwa that you recommended, and they were superb. Powerful stories with deep meaning that can really leave you thinking. The first story completely revolutionized my view on capital punishment, and the second really made me think about what it is exactly I want to do with my life and if it's the path I should really be taking. Anyways, I just wanted to thank you for the recommendations, as I really enjoyed the stories.

Side note: I'd like to recommend a manga that really impacted me similar to the stories I just mentioned. Strongest Man Kurosawa is about a man who works in construction, and seems to always be alone. He's never really been liked, and never had any relationships. The story goes through the life of Kurosawa as he tries to earn the respect of his co-workers and get a little popularity.

Gintama
At first glance, Gintoki is an irresponsible Odd Jobs person who is addicted to Shonen Jump and can never pay his rent. But in the past, he was known as the White Demon for his performance against the invading aliens called Amanto. The manga and anime are both popular in Japan, but im not sure if its popular in other places... The story is funny at times, but others, they have awesome fighting arcs.

Some good stuff nobody's heard of, let's see ...


Enchanter was good while it lasted, though I have no idea what happened in the end since I can't find any manga past volume 10.

IWGP (Ikebukuro West Gate Park) is a great manga for those of you who like modern mysteries, as long as you can handle the maturity level.

Mamotte Shugogetten - THIS.

(Hekikai no) Aion - From the mangaka who brought you Chibi Vampire (Karin), about a war between human-enslaving mermaids and shadow-casting witches.

Rosario + Vampire - The manga is AMAZING, but don't watch the anime. Ever.

Maid War Chronicle, by RAN - It's like Ken Akamatsu's art style with a more serious storyline than originally meets the eye.


Gah, too much buried on my bookcase. I would have more for you, but I seriously can't find any more.

Arata the Legend - Yuu Watase Shonen manga, it's very reminise of Fushigi Yugi at times but is one of the most compelling mangas if people give it a try (I wasn't too sure at first as the bully really pissed me off and has become one of my most hated manga characters, but the more i read the more I've loved it)

Shingeki No Kyojin is amazing. It's an almost post-apocalyptic story of humans trying to hide themselves away in a barricaded city to protect themselves from man-eating giants. It's intense & for some reason, the way the giants are drawn is captivating!
