So, manga is something I haven't really dipped into a lot. I've read a few here and there and one of the problems that I tend to have more often than not is the manga isn't finished and so I catch up and then I end up just forgetting about it without ever getting a conclusion to the story. Or, in the case of something like Black Lagoon, the manga author just takes a ton of time off and the story never really got that far.

I figure I'll tell you a few that I liked reading and perhaps some of you can give me some recommendations based off that. One thing I can say is that art style is very important to me. I have to be able to actually figure out what's going on (i.e. I loved the Made in Abyss anime, but half the scenes in the manga are so obscure/abstract I have no idea what's going on so that's not an enjoyable read for me).

So here's some I read that I liked:

Jormungand
Black Lagoon
3-Gatsu no Lion
Shingeki no Kyojin
Hajime no Ippo

Right now I'm in the mood for some more mature stories featuring adult characters. Slice of Life / Romance / Action/Adventure or even a really good mystery (like an intriguing locked room case) all work. And it needs to be completed please

Thanks in advance!

I just started watching Ju Taisei and The Ancient Magus bride, and I`m already hooked! So I highly recommend those titles (´ ∀ ` *)

Love is Hard for an Otaku is a good one. It is not yet complete but you will not forget this one. Out of all the ones I read for romance. This one is in the top 5 I don't forget to read.

The Rose of Versailles is one to look out for... it was licensed for North America and planned for 2016 but hasn't been released yet. It's a historical fiction with action, intrigue, romance. (The anime adaptation is on CR.)
