Real and Berserk immediately come to mind. Neither of them, especially the former, follow the template you described. I've become disenchanted with Berserk over the years but Real is still one of my favorites. Plus, Inoue's art is amazing.

|Most memorable moment of the series?
(7 posts, 468 views) Posted: 160d 20h, 48m ago by Calamansi in Naruto
When Naruto found out about Jiraiya's death.
Couldn't hold in the tears when the popsicle scene was referenced. ;_; I really started to feel for him as a main character then (before it was mainly the side characters and villains that kept me interested). ...
|Ore Monogatari gets anime!

Funny, I was thinking about various shoujos that could get an anime the other day and this one came to mind. But then I was like "Nahh, they only want to showcase the manic depressive pretty boys."
Glad to see I was wrong! The hype is real. ...

(95 posts, 4244 views) Posted: 338d 8h, 35m ago by Calamansi in Chatter Box
Definitely prefer cats. I've never come across one I haven't liked. They all have such interesting personalities, and can be pretty hilarious, especially when it comes to their pride. Also, they're super soft and cuddly! I love chilling with mine after a ...

Have you tried Basara? No supernatural powers involved, just the effective use of allies and some daring tactics. Strategy isn't really a focus of the manga, but a large component of it is about gathering enough allies to overthrow the corrupt royalty of wha ...

When it comes to background art in manga, you prefer...
-Lots of detail! Feels as if you're immersed in the world
-Just enough so you know where the characters are at/ what's going on
-Little to no detail (easier to focus on current actions)

I chose other animal, that animal being a phoenix.
They've always been one of my favorite mystical beasts. <3
I almost chose "walk" because that sounds so... nonchalant and badass. XD
Too bad that doesn't really fit my image. ...

When you say "it will be made for you", does it mean you will die, or one of the other two people will die?
Lose-lose situation either way, but the first scenario would make the choice more difficult (since refusing to make a decision would be practically su ...

Wow, even after learning about game theory in economics, I can't believe "yes" is in the majority.
You people... suck.
I'd be a bit less incredulous if the amount was 100k or so, but... it's only 10 grand.

I thought it was a shounen until I read the genres. xD
I also recommend Ore Monogatari!! if you're into romance. It follows the perspective of the guy, who is rather... lackluster in appearance, compared to the sparkly anomalies who tend to p ...

Is it just me or did Naruto look especially adorable in this chapter?
Anyways, I loved the development! Hinata spoke up to Naruto while staying in character, props to Kishimoto for that. I have to admit that I almost face-palmed when she commented on Naruto' ...

(2 posts, 441 views) Posted: 872d 15h, 29m ago by Calamansi in Manga General
Well, first the manga has to be good. I can't stand annoying protagonists and cliche plots. If there's some big mystery or final destination that shows hope of being resolved later in a manga, I'll continue reading it because that kind of stuff keeps ...

I've always pronounced anime, as you say, the "American" way. It's always sounded best, because it's like a shortened form of "animation", and even people who aren't into anime know what I'm talking a ...

(281 posts, 41212 views) Posted: 923d 18h, 55m ago by Calamansi in Shoujo/Josei
Something with action like Immortal Rain, Replica, or Masca (which I know is a manwha but I can dream, right?).
The style they're drawn in is already pretty fluid, so I don't feel like I'm missing out on anything when I read them. And I can't w ...

Deep Love - Ayu no Monogatari made me cry for over five minutes until I calmed down. The noisy kind of sobbing too, not a silent watering of the eyes like normal. D:
