Well, if you look closely at the series in which forum this thread was created, then I'm guessing AIDA Yu
You guessed right. But it wasn't hard.

Man, how much I waited for another series from him? I honestly couldn't care less about the topic (baseball and student council? uh), but since it's from him I'm totally reading it. My favorite mangaka ever is finally back! ...

You said you like novels... but you're totally missing out the best ones in your lists.
Hakomari One of the best series ever written. The ratings are speaking for it, but if it wasn't enough, it also has pretty much anything you listed on what you tend to like. I ...

Considering what you read, my #1 rec for you would be a manga in your wish list, Otoyomegatari.
Another good choice would be Vampire Juujikai since you seem to like those kind of love story. If you like it, you should also check other Shirodaira Kyou's wo ...

Quote from nanderson9
I've been reading manga and light novels for a for a long time now and it just seemed like shounen was always a bit lighter than seinen which always seems to carry heavier content, if you know what I mean.
This is just because you ...

Following 22 series so far (and dropped 5), probably gonna drop a bit of them after third episode. So far Arpeggio and Coppelion are the two "serious" series I'm liking the most, while Noukome and Outbreak Company the funniest ones. Still there ...

What genre are you looking for? If you are looking for a history/seinen, look no more: Ad Astra - Scipio to Hannibal.

Mmm I don't think there is so much. So, even if it doesn't fit 100%, Id' still heavily recommend Pluto.

I think the best example of what you're asking for is definitely Billy Bat. The description of the series is really misleading, so just start it, you won't be disappointed. ...

My signature I suppose, but it's very old. Maybe let's put Spice and Wolf under fantasy so I can add Otoyomegatari as slice of life at least. Gunslinger Girl still best manga overall, while best light novel undisputely Hakomari.
And since nobody wants to sa ...

Gunslinger Girl Yu Aida's knowledge of all the subjects in the manga is simply astonishing. Best use of Chekhov's gun I ever read. Somebody could fint it depressing (I don't), but I couldn't avoid to mention my favourite manga. One of the ...

I'm kinda surprised that no one else posted this up yet. Utsuro no Hako to Zero no Maria (Novel)
is an absolute must read. The plot is deliciously mysterious and tricky, and the characters have great development. I highly recommend it! ...
