Then I rather read Ranma 1/2 or something of that sort, which it at the least has a proper plot.

Mahou Sensei Negima is pretty badass. Magic, fighting, and insane fanservice crammed into every chapter.

I feel like I've said this before. Have I already posted in this thread?

Negima is alright. But it is kind of over complicated, but I guess that is part of its goodness.

My attitude towards Angelic Days is a lot like Asuka's attitude towards Shinji in the original series. I like it, but I'm disgusted with myself for liking it. Damn you, Angelic Days. You won't even hold me!

I had an opportunity to buy Volume 1 of it at my school's "book fair" thingy today.

Then I realized that ADV Manga licensed it, and decided not to buy it.

Blade of the Immortal, or Mugen no Juunin, is interesting... and the anime is out now. Lots of body parts and blood. Hehehe...

I've been wanting to get into Angelic Days, but I don't know where I can buy(download) it from.

Zaiku: Amazon.com or the Rightstuf International is your friend.

rightstuf.com: http://tinyurl.com/69lk9g < $32 bucks for the bundle of all 6 volumes :asuka_happy:

Amazon.com : http://tinyurl.com/5l7yfx Huh. Apparently Amazon is going to re-release Angelic Days in library binding format. I don't have any problems with the pages falling out of my copy or anything though...


And yes Angelic Days is nice; despite the sometimes shoddy art quality it's SO much better plot-wise than the nothing but fanservice Ikari Shinji RiAO Project manga. :yuck:

I think you have to play the game or at least read up about it here to get a better idea of what's going on though: http://evageeks.org/FGP/Girlfriend_of_Steel_2

Azumanga Daioh was one of the first mangas that clicked with me and I would recommend it to anyone who needs a laugh. However, while Daioh was good at drawing me in right away, there was no manga, at least in my opinion, that held me, awed me, or immersed me as Chrono Crusade. The depth of the characters, the story, and the underlying messages attatched to me and have never let me go.

I liked raising project better from what I saw of it. I think one of the reasons I didnt like angelic days was that it tried to have a plot but didn't do a very good job at it. It just reads like a bad fanfiction which I hate. The raising project in that respect seemed to be a bit more honest since it didn't really have any pretentions about having a plot and also it was funnier. Though even with raising project I really didn't care for it enough to actually buy it.

The best parts were Kensuke somehow knowing about seele and Rei farting.

Im looking for romance/comedy with a dash of ecchi. I specifically like strange coulpes(guy and a alien girl, guy and a demon girl, guy and a girl that turns into a guy when she sneeezes. guy and ihs step sister, uy and his step mother, guy and his sister etc.) Id like it if the mangas are available on some website to read for free and preferably the manga is complete.

To-love-ru basically ships the main character with every type of girl imaginable and is arguably one of the better harem mangas out there currently. It's not complete yet (no end in sight) but it does have 160 chapters up currently on Onemanga.

There's very little actual serious as hell romance stuff, but plenty of romance, crushes, ecchi shots and whatever.

Basically, every guy and girl combination you mentioned in your post, To-love-ru has it (seriously its all in there).

Psycho Busters is one i would recomend to anyone, good story and introduction, fair ammount of plot twist and such, and all round a good series.

I just finished Negative Happy Chainsaw edge, holy crap that was good, I liked that manga almost as much as Alien 9, that's another one to add to my list of favorite mangas. Even though it was so short it was damned good.

Psycho Busters and Future Diary are both pretty neat... Heh, I like a lot of things that involve manipulation of the timeline :P

Bastard!! is a awesome manga worth checking out. It has amazing artwork (the later parts it is), very good characters, and some awesome action moments. The series starts off like a Dungeons & Dragons type anime, but it's later also focuses on aspects such as beliefs, morals and religions later on in the series.

You would be lucky enough to find it at a book store seeing I had to read vol's 1-10 on One manga sadly. So far Vol's 1-20 have been released in the USA from Viz.

D.Gray-man. it is the most awsome thing ever. its really hard to describe the plot without spoiling it or being to obscure, but i already have all 16 volumes that are out so far, and i plan to buy them all. if that dosn't sell it, i don't know what will.
on a side note, the anime sucks, don't watch it, it's just not something that can be turned properly into anime, its just too complex for that
