I'm looking for any kind of thought provoking manga to read. I don't mind reading most things, just please no shotacon, lolicon, incest, or rape. ^^ By thought provoking, I mean makes you think about life, relationships, yourself that kind of thing. Just one that makes you look at a subject in a new light. I hope I am getting my point across. :]
Also, if you have any suggestions that has a story with more then one point of view of the same story that'd be cool too. Any suggestions will be appreciated.
Kiichi!! is a good one almost all of matusmoto jiro's works, tho the are pretty bad, extreme mature content warning i'd also check out Kotonoha (they scanalated Kiichi!!) they have a ton of slice of life and thought provoking stuff Sagaris said Oyasumi punpun and i highly recommend it, it is extremely thought provoking
The Embalmer is an excellent manga, very episodic and thought-provoking, that really makes you think. Because embalming is severely frowned upon in Japan, it gives a whole new viewpoint on it. The chapters are always subtle and interesting.
