Hello guys, well as the topic says, I'm Looking for Epicness. There is a topic about some "10 manga that you should read at least once", but though it seems similar its not. Here is why:
What do I mean by Epicness? The manga that makes you say: "Holy s*** thank god someone created this" or "OMFG *Brain Explosion*"-kindda thing.
Regarding Genre it should NOT have the following: Smut, Yuri, Yaoi, H (if you can call it an actual genre).
Regarding Lenght of the manga/manhwa/etc: I'm on a 4 months vacation, so BRING IT!
I'd rather like complely scanlated projects, but what the hell, ongoing epicness is still good xD

Feel free to post several titles since I might have read some that you recommend and I don't think you'd want to check my Reading List/Complete List to recommend me something .

Thanks in advance,

Noblesse Forever!

Noblesse The best shonen manga out there. Its completly epic. No usual shonen power-ups/training or "Friendship" crap. Full colour and really well drawn with well choreographed action (& dont judge it for its slow starting).

Berserk An epic dark fantasy. Dont let the starting deceive you.

You've probably already read it, but after the first 100 chapters or so, One Piece consistently fits this criteria better than anything else I've ever read. (... and for the record, I've read 200+ series, and am currently following around 65)

Noblesse and Melo Holic is up there, but no one mentioned Girls of the Wild's?

Edit: Oh, it's already on your list. My bad.

Hunter x Hunter and One Piece are the two best long-running shounen to date.

Berserk, Vinland, Vagabond for ongoing seinen. (I'd also like to throw in Bastard, but Hagiwara is so fucking lazy. No wonder he's friends with Togashi.)

For the Korean side Tower of God and Noblesse ain't half bad.

But if you're going for magnificent rather than epic, Nausicaa and Lone Wolf and Cub more than fit the bill.

Gonna second Hunter x Hunter. I ignored it for years and when I finally read it I couldn't help but think "I'm so glad I didn't die before reading this".
Other series that made me feel the same way would be Bartender, all of Yumeka Sumomo's works, and One Punch Man. I'll have to insist on OPM since it really sounds like the kind of thing you're looking for.

Thanks for your fast replies guys!
So, the titles you mentioned look epic indeed!
Started and finished Melo Holic but had to sacrifice sleep, now it's past 5pm XD
Guess I should really start reading Hunter x Hunter and Berserk. I've seen the anime version of them and I cannot believe that my brain decided not to continue into their manga hahaahh xD
Going also for Vampire Juujikai and Ubel Blatt and Boys on the run. These will be in the short run, guessing might take 2weeks or so XD Though I'm going to read all of them cause they really looked epic!

Where are Urasawa Naoki's works? 20th Century Boys and Monster should be obligatory at the very least.

As for others... Taken from my complete list:
Battle Royale
A Fairytale for the Demon Lord
Shin Angyo Onshi
Evangelion dj - Re-Take if you watched evangelion
Apollo no Uta
