The promised neverland is a good ongoing shonen jump series you should totally read because we need more people in our discussion thread for it. Speaking of shonen jump One Piece is its most popular manga and for good reason: it's really damn good. Though it got a crap anime adaptation the manga bounces seamlessly from panel to panel with more style and personality than any shonen battle manga. But if you want to step away from shonen jump there's also the Heroic Legend of Arslan by Hiromu Arakawa of FMA fame. It's a high fantasy series with war, politics, betrayal and of course swords and sorcery. If you want to go more of a shojo route you should read My Love Story which does what no other romantic comedy has done before by being both romantic and funny.

Oh and you should also read JoJo's Bizarre Adventure because it's one of the best manga of all time, but I recommend sticking with the scanlations as the official sources suck.

Awesome ! I was always to intimidated to read One Piece because it's been ongoing for a really long time but if it's that good I'll definitely give it a go. I'll check out the other ones as well. Thank you so very much!

Well it's length of publication is a testament to its consistent quality, rest assured. You can also save money by buying several volumes at a time in box sets like I really want to.

I second My Love Story. It's kind of shojo but even guys enjoy it, because it is funny. But my most favorite manga to date is A Silent Voice. The story is about bullying in elementary school. But everyone can probably relate to the characters on some level when they were young.

I loved My Love Story anime! Is there more story in there than in the anime? Sorry if that sounds like a silly question ^.^'' I'll deff check out A Silent Voice, I enjoy stories like that because it's very relatable Thank you very much for the help! :3

I recommend these: Amano Megumi wa Suki Darake!, Ashitaba-san Chi no Muko Kurashi, Grand Blue, Hajimete no Gal, Hoshino, Me o Tsubutte, Zannen Jokanbu Black General-san, KISS×DEATH, Let's Lagoon, Koi Inu, Many more too. Theses are the ones that are real good. Grand Blue right now is going to be monthly, so far they finally caught up to it.

I also have Manhwa recommendations too if you want them.

This one is waaaay out there, but if you give it a chance, I promise you won't be able to put it down until it's over.

Read Aisopos. It's a manhua hosted on webtoon, so you can read it for free if you download the app. It just finished last month as well, so you won't be left with cliffhangers.
It's about the life of Aesop. I don't know how to describe it to you without spoiling it, but it's a beautiful story about a brilliant man who had to endure many tragedies throughout his life. It's incredibly gripping, and the art is spectacular. There's action, romance, morals, everything!!

The ending ultimately is good, but much was sacrificed along the way.
