Vinland saga. Anything by Naoki Urasawa, especially 20th Century boys and Pluto. On the lighter side I like Renai Bokun. If you want dirty gritty sci fi I recommend Gantz. Some uplifting moments. Amazing to see the transformation of Kei.

Thanks guys! :)

Anything else you might recommend for Action/Adventure Manga?
With a very good story.

Vagabond might be up your alley. Then Gintama and One Punch Man.

might want to check and make sure he didn't already read/have the manga listed here.
would be pretty terrible to get an awesome manga series...only to find he already read it. :L
unless you want to surprise him, in which case try to avoid the mainstream manga (chances are, he already read those)

He hasn't read any Manga before.We have been living together for many years.
We both want to try to get into Manga
However I only like Romantic/Comedy genres OR Action/Adventure/Fantasy. Some slice of life is good too!

Any recommendations for me please send to my inbox too! :)

can't recommend much shounen since i only read Bragon Dall, which is a classic.

as for recommendation for someone looking for comedy / slice of life:

Yotsubato (comedy)
Kin iro mosaic (comedy)
Gakuen Alice (comedy, school + magic)
Love So Life (a high school student becomes a baby sitter, pretty cute)
Little Little. (pretty short and very little dialogue, but still very cute)
Orange is supposedly very good too (Romance/Drama)

i'm currently reading kamikami kaeshi, and seems pretty interesting imo...

it's from the mangaka who wrote watashi ni xx shinasai, which seems fairly popular.

Even though he's seen the anime, I'd still recommend the Deadman Wonderland manga. There are a lot of differences between the two, enough that they're totally different experiences.
