Welcome aboard.

In terms of manga to recommend, I'd really need to know what you like. I'm assuming you already watch some anime, too? What genres of entertainment do you like? i.e. Slice of life, sci fi, fantasy, steam punk, romantic, etc...

I don't know what you would like to read but you seem to like Fights so try reading Battle Vixens.

Virtually anything by Naoki Urasawa. Pluto, Monster, 20th Century Boys.

I really like action, sci-fi, horror but am open to anything.

Berserk is a must read for action and high fantasy fans. Its comparable in quality to the lord of the rings novels.

Tokyo Ghoul is also good.

A few of my favorites (and good jumping off points):

- Angel Denstsu: Boy has the face of a demon and the heart of an angel. School-yard brawling comedy with a touch of romance. It's finished.

- My Love Story (Ore Monogatari): About a hulk-with-a-heart-of-gold, his excessively good looking best friend, and the girl he falls in love with. Straight Romantic Comedy. Currently 3 volumes released, more to come.

- A Silent Voice (Koe no Kitachi): Boy comes to deeply regret bullying a deaf girl when they were both children. Drama with a bit of romance. Finished.

- Trigun / Trigun Maximum (name changed part-way through when it switched magazines): Gunman dogged by his past and his legend, while trying to avoid killing. Gunfighting action in a steam-punk western setting. Finished.

My suggestion would be is to try some of the smaller mangas, the ones that have 6 to 10 chapters in a variety of mixed genes. I use an app that gets manga from several sites, and as I look at all the manga I'm going through, *note status* I notice that they have all different types of variety. But with your interest and age range, seinen probably fits you best. Try this.

Also when you use seinen as a search tool, make sure you also include fantasy or sci-fi
