I need something to read that is interesting enough right off the bat to grab my attention and not let go. I love long and involved plots, but I just want something to pass the time for now.

I am not looking for anything H, yaoi, yuri, shonen ai, horror (as a main focus), or pure action, or pure slice of life.

I do want- something with some sort of bishojo, some sort of plot, some sort of drama, some sort of comedy, some sort of romance, or any combination there of.

Please help. I'm freakin bored.

Maybe Ai Kora? Should be just mindless enough to satisfy you. And no, despite the description, it's not hentai.

Another option might be Superior.

I really like Negative Happy Chainsaw Edge, and would suggest that first, but it's only been translated up to four or so chapters so far.

Akira, has a little bit of everything and is freakin' awsome too boot. It's not on any of your lists so go read it!

Also anything by Adachi Mitsuru, but Rough in particular. I am a little biased towards him however.

Heres a few more drama/comedy/romance I came up with
Angel Densetsu
Video Girl Ai
Sanctuary (not comedy)
Maison Ikkoku
Living Game

It think something like this would be more to your tastes. You seem to like more seinen style manga than crenishinibon is suggesting...

That's probably true- I couldn't really think of any seinen that fit quite within the quality he was asking for and weren't already on his list.

Yeah, I even had to go with a series that's just... different from most shounen instead of actual seinen.

Added to the wish list.

Is there something like Kurohime out there?

Tales of Innocence - It's a game but I found the manga quite interesting.

Strong girl, nice guy routine?
Try Immortal Rain, though the heroine is much more docile than kurohime

Also, Furi Kuri, its short and nonsensical, but the boy girl dynamic is very similar.

Furi Kuri sounds interesting, but Immortal Rain isn't really what I was referring to. Seems too light hearted compared to Kurohime. I really meant a smokin hot chick and a dedicated dude with a strong amount of romance and a good deal of action.

Then we're probably heading back to [url=http://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=6685]Superior[url] as crenshin mentioned before. It's a better read than it looks from the description.

if thats what you meant than neither of my suggestions really work, furi kuri is still cool, but the chicks in that are more like badasses than babes

There are a few of those guy supports/gives power to hot babes who fight. It's alittle generic at times, but things like Black God, Sekirei and Mai Hime

Superior is now being read. Thank you for that one.

Still taking suggestions.

For the record, the Furi Kuri anime is great- the manga, however, is pretty terrible in comparison.

The only others I can think of that vaguely fit are Tsukihime and Melty Blood. Tsukihime is a bit better.

Bah, the more vaguely fitting the better.


As long as there is a hot chick, some sort of plot, or something to grasp on to, I'm good.
