Well, I just started Hunter X hunter, and that's pretty good(saw the ova's a year or so ago), and will probably start Hikaru no Go soon (got a bunch of both series cheap off of ebay), and I like reading a volume or two to relax before bed. But there are always others to start which I can read on my pc (i.e. during breaks at work). So what should I start reading?

Of these, anime i've seen: Monster, Full Metal Panic, and Full Metal Alchemist, so wondering if the manga should be read(or just start where the anime left off in the case of FMA)

Or recommend something from my wish list. Or something out of left field (i.e. shojo), just no sports or magic girl.

Right now I'm leaning towards 666 Satan, cause it's by the twin of the naruto author, so might be similar(and Blazer Drive is starting decently).

Monster anime is a quite good adaptation of the manga so, I don't think the anime left something out, still I haven't watched all the anime. Full metal alchemist anime doesn't follow quite much the manga in the last bunch of episodes (don't remember really where they begin to be different).

Taking a peek at your wish list, I say Ibara no ou , Kimi no kakera and Level E are quite good picks too.

Hikaru no Go and 666 Satan are nice choices too.

Just seen the poll òÖ. Weird polls are being made lately...

Is Golden Boy better than the anime? I rate the anime as tied for second in comedy (tied with GTO, both after Fumoffu), only cause it's so short is it tied for second. And it's one of the few that had better English dub than Japanese(I watched it twice in Japanese before English).

I'll wait on the Tora Dora until there are a few more out. and I don't know why I didn't put Black Lagoon on list, might bump it up if more people post recommending it.

Thanks for all the responses and votes. Reading through Marvel Civil war now, plus anime-expo, so whatever is top starting next week is what I'll read.

I'd say don't read 666 Satan, the ending is horrible because people were saying its a copy and stuff, so he wanted to end it quickly.. I'd say stick to his new series =]

I'd say Flame Of Recca, Onikiri Jjyuzo, Full Metal Alchemist, MX0 and Kurozuka are the ones I recommend. [Though I overall choose Flame of Recca =D]

Now that I look at it, You have ALOT of good series on your wish list.. I'll choose top three =D, Nurarihyon no Mago, History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi and Jackals.

yeah, I cleaned my wish list about a half year ago(had a TON more). Kenichi good to start from where the anime left off, or should I start at the beginning?

Well, I never watched the anime when I started reading the manga, so I strated at the beginning, but, if you've seen the anime, it may be good to start off where it stopped.

But except for 666 Satan and Flame of Recca all the others are good.

yeah 666satan is not that great, the author is the brother of the author naruto.
Same for the flame of recca.

Full metal alchemist, read the manga as it is be written, the annime was good, but it ended to quickly.

Black lagoon, is good but i am still waiting for season 3, but it is a really sick series, good watch.

Golden boy has a good anime.

[m]Welcome to the NHK[/m], Pastel, Mx0, are pretty decent reads.

monster, is good,

Read Fullmetal Alchemist. If you haven't read it yet, you're missing out. And the manga's different from the anime, so it may be more interesting.

Monster is pretty much copied and pasted to make the anime version. I'm fairly certain it's an exact adaptation.

Fullmetal is probably the best option, only read the whole thing, since the manga is considerably different from the anime (seriously, Dante doesn't even exist). I still prefer the anime by far though, since I found the second half to be complex and morally interesting, rather than remaining the same action-adventure show.

Black Lagoon is very good. Read it at some point in the near future if you don't read it now.

From July 8:
Ok. Looks like I start Fullmetal Alchemist (from the beginning) tomorrow. Unless some people who never voted all vote for one of the others that is.

From July 14:
ok. FMA done! Pretty good, thanks for the recommendation everyone.

Since I've seen Monster the anime, I think I'll skip the manga for now and goto Mx0, or maybe 20th Century Boys, since that's in high regard.
