i'm looking for something funny.....a school life or a slice of life, something like uhhh..... Clannad, or Genshiken, or Moyashimon, or Kurenai?, but without the romance.....well actually i guess it can have romance, i dont really care aslong as it's not like overly dramatic...preferably not a shounen or shoujo.....i'd like a seinin or josei, either would be good

and also i'd like something thats just great....dont really care what it is or what it's about though, as long as it's not an action (not in the mood for another action)....oh yeah, and i dont want any shounen-ai or Yaoi,....there just not for me, so yeah.... thanx, i'll appreciate the help


wait...actually now that i think about, i could go for an Adventure also, yeah that would work too.......so yeah an adventure, so it could be shounen or shoujo for this one....... so any or all of these 3 recommendations would help alot

You could try School Rumble or Angel Densetsu. Didn't see them on your lists.... but both are considered shounen.

And Yotsubato! is the funniest thing ever, IMO!!... appeals more to older readers, for some reason.... and kids hate it, which should mean it's good.

My brain ain't working right now..... I'll try to add some more later.

As for the "something that's just great" topic.... my usual seinen recommendations.

Everything by Asano Inio....
especially Nijigahara Holograph(greatest 1volume manga ever)

Mushishi, Gunslinger Girl, YKK, Blood Alone

Definitely.... he's the greatest. I've told my mate in Tokyo to get me all his stuff, even though I can't read much Japanese.... I just wanna support his work.

i've seen the animes of Mushishi YKK and some Gunslinger girl...though i didnt to much care for it.....but Mushishi was fucking dope by the way, one of my favorite animes.... so i'll check out Blood Alone and this Nijigahara Holograph, though i should of mentioned i was looking for something on the lengthy side...atleast 5volumes...but thanx again

GTO -> shounen, but it's one of the funniest manga ever.
Mahoraba -> maybe a little too romance oriented, but it's funny and slice of life
Shina Dark
Mx0 -> but it's a shounen
NHK

Some of my fav non-action manga:

Spiral
I's
Eternal Sabbath

You could also try King of Thorns (has action btw), Homunculus, Milk Closet (weird) or Ai-Ren

Bitter Virgin, but I suspect you may have read this.... everyone else has.

Whattabout 20th Century Boys or Monster

BTW.... Gunslinger Girl and YKK are vastly superior to their anime counterparts. (both quite lengthy)

If you like something a bit morbid/gritty, try Smuggler.... I'm currently reading Bradherley's Coach. So far so good. (both 1shots, BTW)

If you want a light-hearted seinen romance with some simple comedy, try Living Game (complete... 10 vol)

and I second Eternal Sabbath.... also Mars by the same author

Azumanga Daioh - Seinen, school life, same author as Yotsubato!
Seigi no mikata - Josei, quite fun.
Gintama - It's shounen I think, but the most funny manga I had read lately.

For other recomendations:
Hotman
Pluto
