"Lately I've been yearning for something comedy and family-like manga. I just can't seem to find one."

~ definitely check out maison ikkoku, the characters are all unique, quirky and different from one another. it's a bit older and written by rumiko takahashi (same chick who wrote inuyasha, mermaid saga, etc. etc.) some lady recommended it to me when i was lurking around at the library one day and i couldn't stop reading it!! it's so cute!

Hey guys, can anyone recommend me a GOOD series where the main boy picks the second lead??

I know a few series where the girl ends up with the second guy but hardly the other way round.
Not like kimi no iru machi where the first lead was the girl he ends up with. Something along the lines of Naruhina from Naruto (the manga is still ongoing so this is not canon..yet) but a more romance oriented shoujo/shounen series will be better

Rurouni Kenshin
Samurai Deeper Kyo - though the fights drags on quite a bit but overall a good series with an interesting romance and an anti hero as a protagonist
Psyren
Naruto
Fairytail
Basara - the art is not the best but the plot and romance more than enough makes up for it.

SDK is a fantastic manga, it's actually the first manga that I read so it will always be my favourite. Other favourites include Mars, Complex, Usagi Drop, Chihayafuru, Bokura Ga Ita, and Haou Airen.
Can someone make a recommendation based on these mangas? Thanks in advance

The best part of SDK is that it has a concrete plot unlike many shounen manga

You can try His and Her Circumstances, the second half is a little dark like Mars and it's a classic.
Cat Street
Nana - it's a josei and you seem to like this genre. It's an amazing series if you're okay with drama though
Kimi no Todoke

Okay, so I used to be a huge, huge fan of anime and manga, but then I kind of got burned out. I still watch a series or film now and then, and I keep up on a few long running mangas, although I'm enthralled with them. Or, I enjoy them, but they're just light entertainment to distract me from my week (also I've been reading them since they came out and kind of feel committed to the narratives [like, I've been reading them since the early 2000s]).

But, lately, I've become a bit obsessed with Yoshihiro Tatsumi and Adult-oriented Tezuka, and the alternative manga anthologies (AX, Japanese comics, etc.), but I realized that I was reading/enjoying mostly men. There were some women in the anthologies, but nothing quite as striking as Tatsumi (especially) in terms of subtext and narrative/conceptual depth (nor anything with the heavy handed attempts at "literary swagger" one finds in the Tezuka).

I know vertical has some Josei manga out, and I ordered a couple, but they seem more topical (eating disorders, etc.) ...I'm excited to read them, but they aren't exactly what I'm looking for.

Are there any manga by female authors, or manga with feminist themes (or queer, or racial/postcolonial themes, even, to open up the possibilities!) that reach toward the literary in the way that Tatsumi and Tezuka do? Does Manga have a Virginia Wolf? A Gertrude Stein? A Toni Morrison? A Sylvia Plath? I would love to know! Are they translated?

Non-Japanese comics are welcome too!

Thanks in advance for the help!

I like to read a variety of manga, so I'll recommend a one from each demographic that I feel like people don't normally recommend:

Liar Game (Seinen), the variety and the fast paced story makes this a good story to get into. The two protagonists are complete opposites, but they make up for each others "weakenesses" and figuring out the tricks or the lies in the games are fun.

Usagi Drop (Josei), the story is really easy to get into and even though it's a sad story, it's uplifting in a realistic way (not overly dramatic) that I think people can appreciate. Also the series is finished, so you don't feel like there are any open endings.

Bakuman (Shonen), if you are expecting DeathNote from this manga, look somewhere else, but somehow the authors make the ins and outs of becoming a manga artist and the progression of their careers really interesting. The pure-heartedness of the characters makes you really attached and root for them and the variety you get from seeing each manga story that they try to write makes you want to see the final product that they come up with.

Faster than a Kiss (Shojo), for me shojo mangas tend to be a retrospective look at what first love was like. Faster than a Kiss gives you those "doki doki" moments without crossing the line and really makes you want to read til the end.

I'm in the mood for a good horror series that's light on gore and heavy on psychological thrills. Or possibly an epic like Buddha. LGBT themes would be a plus, and so would cyberpunk.

Series I've read so far:

*Akira (I wasn't a fan; I prefer character-based stories over action)
*Osamu Tezuka's Buddha, Phoenix, MW, and Ode to Kirihito
*Monster
*Shin Megami Tensei (just the first two volumes)
*Wild Adapter (first four)
*Death Note
*Descendants of Darkness
*Ghost in the Shell
*MPD-Psycho (just the first one)
*Eden: It's an Endless World (first 2-3)

I'm looking for a good manga that makes you wanna jump out of your seat and go accomplish every task you put your mind too. Something that makes you question what your doing and makes you look at things different.
