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
Black and White

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.

Does the walker choose the path, or the path the walker?

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

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

Hrodulf and Bjornolfr, you will not be forgotten.

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.
