I really like reading mangas while watching the corresponding anime, so does anyone have any nice mangas? biggrin

My general guideline is that the manga has "good" art (there's probably many different opinions, but I just really dislike art like "Koukou Debut") and not too much blood (but there are exceptions like Claymore).

I have watched/am watching:
-Bleach (Anime's getting kind of boring)
-Ouran High School Host Club (kinda stupid, but so cute ^.^)
-Ayashi no Ceres (Didn't like this one all that much, but I did finish the manga)
-Kin'iro no Corda (I think I like music manga, but I'm not sure since this is the only one I've actually read confused )
-Special A (really, really, really cute eyes )
-Fushigi Yuugi (really hated the ending dead )
-Inuyasha (All time favorite)
-Hikaru no Go (At first thought it'd be stupid, but ended up loving it, it was my first manga/anime series!!)
-Mermaid's Forest (kinda creepy, gave me nightmares, but I liked it!!)

Thanks for helping!! bigrazz

Sunabozu and Beck are the only things I can think of now that you'd like. There is also Black Lagoon, Naruto and One Piece, but I don't think you'll really be int those.

Judging what you read, you should try Ranma 1/2. One of Rumiko's hilarious works.

Black Cat
Flame of Recca

That is the titles I will tell ya.

I second Vampire Knight and D.Gray-man as being great. Prefer the manga in both but the anime is good as well, especially VK. The anime really clears things upl.

The only ones not previously mentioned I can think of are
Nabari no Ou (though the anime is ahead of the manga scalations atm.
Spiral: Suiri no Kizuna Thought the manga was good but not gotten far with the anime yet.
E's Though again the anime is ahead of the scanlations. I love it though.
Tenshi Kinryouku The art is great but the anime is only 3 OMVs that are good as a preview but stop before the real story gets going. One of my favourites though
X Quite bloody so you may not like it plus the anime invented it's own ending since the manga was put on hiatus years ago. Great story though.
Rurouni Kenshin Again bloody but not graphically so or overly violent. Manga and anime are both good as well.
Maburaho Personally I didn't like this. The manga was very short The anime was actually better but neither was to my tastes since I felt they wasted potential. You might feel differently though.
Gantz Quite graphic from what I've read so far (about 50 chapters) so you may not like it. Not seen the anime so can't comment. Just thought I'd mention it in case.

Hope this helps.
