Does anyone know of a manga that takes place in the US (preferably) or another country other then japan? Genre does not matter. I just really want to read one written in a different environment other then japan. Like I stated above, I'm mainly looking for one set in the US. :]

Thanks! Any help will be appreciated.

Majo, well most of it anyway.
Its first story takes place in Istanbul, and I could tell the setting was very accurately done.

Edit: Also, Otoyome-gatari

Pet Shop of Horrors
Alien Toori
Zankoku na Kami ga Shihaisuru
Tista
Roureville - But this is a manhwa; not sure if you'll like that.

I definitely second Baccano!

dozens of fantasy and sci-fi mangas are sent in so strange realities, they cannot be descrided as Japan. though as I can see, you want some real countries.
a half of Nodame Cantabile is set in Europe.
Gunslinger Girl also Europe, mostly Italy.
Ore to Akuma no Blues US.
Vinland Saga North Europe.
Historie Ancient Greece.

The One...? The first half is set in Taiwan, then it moves to New York and now to Paris. Its about the fashion industry so it always has a cosmopolitan feel anyway.

Eastcoast and The Other Side of the Mirror are both set in the US.

Kuroshitsuji and Arago are both set in England. (I think Makai Ouji: Devils and Realist is also set in England?)

Plus all the manhwa that are set in Korea. Lol.

EDIT: Oh, and Ikoku Meiro no Croisée has been on my wishlist for a while. It's set in France, though it's focused on a Japanese girl. And Dance! Subaru spends a majority of its time in America or Europe, though it begins in Japan.
