I haven't been reading manga for very long and I wanted to know what were some good series to get into.
Unfortunately, I don't really know what I like because I've only read Fruits basket. I do know that I like fantasy novels.
I've heard of death note and alchemist something or other....and I noticed lucky star and marmalade boy (?) in passing.
Are any of those titles good? I'd appreciate any other recommendations I can get.
Since you've said you really like fantasy novels, I would recommend checking out From Far Away by Kyoko Hikawa. It's one of my favorite fantasy manga, and at 14 volumes it's a mid-length series.
A few other complete fantasy series that I enjoyed are Wish, Cardcaptor Sakura and Tokyo Babylon, all by Clamp.
Two other Clamp series that are fantasy based and ongoing are Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles and xxxHolic that I would totally recommend.
I got Her Majesty's Dog from the library and I really enjoyed it! thanks again for the reccomendations.
- Red River by Chie Shinohara - Japanese girl gets transported back in time to the Hittite Empire at the height of its power
- Paradise Kiss by Ai Yazawa - Gorgeous, unique art; can be a little graphic so I don't know if your library would carry it due to the sex and nudity. But it's one of my favorite series.
- Ranma 1/2 by Rumiko Takahashi - Mostly I just wanted to balance out this list with a comic with a male protagonist, and Ranma was one of the first popular stories that I can remember in the late 1990s, when I started reading manga
Another fun action/fantasy/adventure series is Black Cat by Kentaro Yabuki. It comes in at 20 volumes, and 15 of them have been released in the US. Don't know whether or not your library would carry it, but it's worth looking in to, right?
I prefer the timing of the manga to to the timing of the anime, but your mileage may vary. I read the manga a couple years before I saw any of the anime, so I already had that version of events firmly in my head.
i've also started death note. i really like it. L's hilarious.
The Twelve Kingdoms by Fuyumi Ono was a favorite anime of mine, though I haven't been able to find a manga version if one exists... you should be able to rent it though.
Other titles quickly.... Samurai Champloo, Cowboy Bebop, Bleach, Fullmetal Alchemist, and though I haven't read it myself, i hear that Eyeshield 21 is entertaining.
