So I got a sudden urge to read an adventure/fantasy or sci-fi manga with several races, at least like 5 or so. Like maybe humanoids who look like cats or tigers, or lizards, or maybe the more common such as elves, orchs, fairies, dwarves and similar.

Must have a male lead and nothing to dark or psycological, I want to have fun reading this smile

And no novels, please.

I look at your reading list and you pretty much didn't read some of the more popular titles that well deserved their popularity. So ya, almost a no brainer recommending these but whatever

One Piece- giants, mermaids, dwarfs, fishmen, dinosaurs, and others
Berserk- fairy, monsters, trolls, etc

Berserk is probably what you looking for and is a better fantasy story of the two. But I feel like One Piece is the better adventure story of the two. One is shonen, lighthearted, and can be very funny depend on your taste. One is seinen, dark, and brutal. Hmm, yeah, it is closer to what you looking for but the atmosphere isn't quite what you wanted. >___< Though one piece will be a fun read.

1) If you don't mind, this isn't a manga, but an online comic: Inverloch

Genre: Adventure/fantasy

It has different animal races, humans, elves, and mixed breeds. There are a few dark tones/trauma, but nothing super dark/gory. (Otherwise, I wouldn't have been able to read this twice over a span of several years.)

Site's summary sums it up just right without spoiling anything:
The story of Inverloch centers around a young man named Acheron, from a horned wolf-like race called the da'kor. After a chance encounter with an elf, he finds himself setting out on a seemingly innocent mission - that of trying to locate Kayn'dar, another elf who has been missing for the past twelve years.

Meeting up with new friends and companions along the way, he quickly begins to learn that the world is not quite the peaceful place he believed it to be - embroiled with prejudice, racial segregation, and hidden danger. And the truth behind Kayn'dar's disappearance is something none of the party would ever expect...

2) Fantasy World Survival - Think RPG turned webtoon starring a gladiator knight(?), a magician, and eventually, a healer (female). This world has magical humans, normal humans, elves, orcs, giants, and a lot of other creatures. I think there may be a dark past with the knight character, since we barely know anything about it just yet, but for now, everything feels dramatic or light-hearted without that darkness. We don't even know the real names of both the knight and mage.

3) Hameln no Violin Hiki - Shchelkunchik - Genre: fantasy/action/music type of story.
You got humans, mixed demon blood type of humans, unknown type of humans, and faeries. Unfortunately, this story ended on a very quick note by the mangaka. There are twinges of darkness in this one, but not on a horror type of scale. At least, what I've read of it the last time I saw it. ....... Ok, yes. There is psychological trauma here, but it's needed for character development. It's not that hardcore to me compared to a certain seinen story that focused on human experimentation involving students. The only reviewer, for this story, has this on the dot that this manga isn't really seinen, but shounen. The battle lengths aren't that bad though. This is a fun manga to me.

try Gensou Suikoden III - Unmei no Keishousha though the scans are incomplete. It had several races but I kinda forgot the name. Pretty sure one of the race was a crocodile-like humanoids. biggrin

I tried Inverloch, but I need a human MC smile

Then I started reading Fantasy World Survival, and it looks good so far! Think maybe this RPG adventure thing was more what I was looking for.

Will check out your other recs to as soon as I get time.

Not so sure about One Piece, I want a story with a clear ending in sight, and seeing how it has over 700 chapters, does it have a main story, or does it just reboot with new arcs upon new arc indefinitely?
