Quote from Lucky23
I think antiheroes are heroes that fights for good morals but not afraid to kill. Black Lagoon...All of those character are bad guys. lol

Hmm... True. Let's say I'd like more 'villain protagonists' then, as almighty tvtropes puts it. ^^

Basically something that deviate greatly from common titles of its genre. Like, shounen romance which is sensible, or just simply 'not puny'. Shoujo that isn't cheapy in romance, or in comedy, or in mystery, or at least doesn't involve any prince charming. Battle manga which paced logically or at least less talking than blowing. Drama that is appeal to wider audience and highly enjoyable. Or hentai that has strong attention to the plot.

Among the curious: Lolicon that is readable. Yaoi which don't repulse male reader. Yuri that is not only feelings in high dose. Shounen action that doesn't too stupid for female reader. Among the common reading: Battle manga that has doesn't depend too much on power-up. Harem that is harem because it's required. Sports that isn't focused on one character development. Thriller that is actually thrilling.

Of course there are some that fits the bill, like Your Dog, 1/11, and some other (because I'm too lazy to look up my list).

I crave for something fresh. I crave for something that implemented in genious proportion. 'Old things redone better' just doesn't appeal anymore.

Quote from Pebble_
Hard to find : Real antiheroes, with no moral sense whatsoever, who do whatever the hell they want, and mostly terrible things. Like Revy in Black Lagoon.

Even harder : Gambler or swindler protagonists or anything where the hero uses his brain to pull gambits on the people around him. Said gambits ...

agreed. Those aren't really antiheroes, but villians
Shamo, in my opinion, is the most true villian as a main character that I've ever seen
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
He rapes someone's girl just to piss him off. Real rape. My god o_o Never ever thought a manga would go so far. I'll finish shamo eventually... when I'm under a little less stress and am a little more mentally stable

Surprisingly enough though, it's hard to find good "hidden powers" mangas.
