I am going to recommend Trinity Blood, although I just purchased (or tried to purchase) the light novels and manga...but when Tokyopop went under, no one else seems to have picked up the English translated printing of this. Which is a shame, the artwork is beautiful.

I am hoping that more people will pick it up and want the remainder of its volumes translated....

Deadman Wonderland pissed me off the anime end was just terrible it ended so abruptly

Ah, I think it got cancelled at the last minute or something, as it follows the manga very closely, only the manga continues after that ending scene. The manga did go on hiatus for a long time while the mangaka was on extended maternity leave, but she's up and running now and will be finishing the series soon I think. Try reading the manga scanlations online, and then decide how you feel about it.

I like reading at MangaPark because I can load all the pages at once and don't have to click my way through. I also use Avast! to remove the ads from the page. So nice!


Ahh thanks for the information. I would but when i watch an anime that i started watching before reading the manga i try notto read ahead.

Hmm... Miraii nikki , togainu no chi, Deadman Wonderland, I think...

Mirai Nikki
Middle school 2nd year, Amano Yukiteru, is a boy who has problem making friends. He thinks of himself as a bystander and will always write down everything he sees in a cell phone diary.

Tormented by solitude, Yukiteru began to imagine things like a friend called Deus Ex Machina who is apparently the Lord of Time & Space. Seeing Yukiteru's miserable state, Deus gives him a new ability. His diary will now record events that will happen in the near future. Yukiteru is then forced to participate in a game which the winner will become Deus's successor

Togainu No Chi

After being devastated in the third World War (known as The Third Division), Japan was divided in two. Several years after the end of the war, a crime organization called Vischio has taken control of the destroyed city of Toshima (formerly Tokyo, Japan's capital city), where they are holding a battle game known as "Igura". The main character, a young man named Akira, is falsely accused of a crime. Once arrested, a mysterious woman appears before him, offering him freedom if he agrees to participate in Igura and defeat Igura's strongest man: the king, or "Il-re". The story follows Akira's life in the harsh, lawless Toshima as he fights both to survive and to unravel the mysteries developing around him.

Deadman Wonderland

Ganta is the only survivor after a mysterious man in red slaughters a classroom full of teenagers. He's framed for the carnage, sentenced to die, and locked away in the most twisted prison ever built: Deadman Wonderland. And then it gets worse.

At Deadman Wonderland, convicts are forced into brutal deathmatches for the amusement of the masses, the cheers of the crowd drowning out the screams of the dismembered. Even when Ganta befriends Shiro, an unusual female inmate, his dark fate crushes all hope —until he discovers the strange ability to wield his spilled blood as a weapon. Ganta learns his new skill might be related to the murderous man in red and uncovers disturbing secrets that could expose those who stole his freedom. He's determined to see justice served —but first he'll have to fight for his life in a prison that holds a million ways to die.

Here's three i would give you more but i've been trying to remember and write the anime i've seen and putting it on my account but i'm finding it very hard to remember them all adn tbh i've only got like 1/10 of what i've seen in there right now.
Hope you enjoy these i really liked them.

Other than Amazon and eBay, I use RightStuf.com, they have some pretty good prices! I've also used JustManga.com in the past, but their discount isn't as good as RightStuf.

There's also Forbidden Planet from NYC: http://www.fpnyc.com/ I've never used their online shop, but their store has a rather large selection!
Midtown Comics from NYC http://www.midtowncomics.com/ but again, I never used their online shop, only in their store, but they also have a great selection, maybe even better than Forbidden Planet.

Also, you can try the official sites of the companies that localize and release manga titles in the US. If not for buying, then for scoping out the different manga titles that are available in English officially.

For instance:

Gunslinger Girl is (now) licensed by Seven Seas Entertainment http://www.gomanga.com/manga/gunslingergirl.php

Higurashi: When They Cry is licensed by Yen Press http://www.yenpress.com/higurashi-when-they-cry/

Gantz is licensed by Dark Horse Comics http://www.darkhorse.com/Search/gantz

Neon Genesis Evangelion is licensed by Viz Media http://www.viz.com/manga/print/neon-genesis-evangelion

Attack On Titan is licensed by Kodansha Comics http://kodanshacomics.com/series-list/

Velvet Kiss is licensed by Digital Manga http://www.digitalmanga.com/books/896/

There, for starters I gave six manga titles.

This is pretty old now, and was personal request for recommendation. Since we now have a Recommendation Thread, I'm locking and closing this.
