First, I appologie for my bad english. I hope you don't mind as long as you got the point.

So, I'm looking for a manga with a plot. I don't care what genre it is, but I kinda don't like easy story lines. I' d like to read a manga that makes you think.
To put it shortly, I want
-good, (mature) plot
-not those never ending stories with 200 volumes
-beautiful art work
-charismatic caracthers

To make it more easy, I absolutely hate inuyasha, hunterxhunters dragon ball etc. shojo-candy-stories, hunterxhunter, porn without plot.
I didn't like Naruto (even after trying to read it, I only managed to read 10 first volume, and all that because my friends forced me to) I didn't like blade (it was just too ugly) nor did I succes to read vagabond ,bleach, nana..

I did however like the beginning of the death note (surprise), Ganz, elfen lienb and Saikano. (it makes me cry every time I read it!)
I don't know if it's possible to find a story with all tose standarts but I already thank you all who try! eyes

Deadman Wonderland
and
Black and White
are the only things that come to mind.

there are others, but they aren't too far into the story yet.

D.Gray-man <-- the art is gorgeous, 15 volumes up to date, on-going.
Alichino <-- art is great
The Bride of the Water God <-- the story seems original and the art is beautiful. It's a manhwa, still on-going, I think.
The Embalmer <-- Great art and the stories really make you think/feel for the characters.

It would be easier for us to suggest you manga if you had your lists publicized, you know smile wink grin

Homunculus has a really great plot.. The artwork isn't all that though.

I wonder if you mind BL~
If you could let me know what's your stand on yaoi, It'd be easier to suggest^^

So...
Berserk If you haven't read it, you really sould... must, even..
Team Medical Dragon is nice..
Every manga by sahara mizu
Shiiku Gakari Rika - maybe?~.~ yaoi...
Switch kind of confusing at times though~
Angel Sanctuary

I can go on...
But I'm not even sure what to put here~

Edit: I second Layhe 's suggestions. eyes

Try this topic. It's got what you want in a plot, well, most of them do at least, though the artwork requirement isn't there.

Also, despite their appearances in the other topic, I strongly second 20th Century Boys, Monster, and Fullmetal Alchemist.
