Anime and Manga V3

So, this is the Anime and Manga thread, up to V3. This is a place to give reviews, look for suggestions, and just chat in general about Anime and Manga. The last threads have had some good discussion, and remained remarkably civil.

Below is what I would personally suggest. There's a number of different genres represented on these two lists.

Suggested Anime to watch:
Akira
Cowboy Bebop
Ghost in the Shell
Initial D
Last Exile
Mobile Suit Gundam: 8th MS Team
Ninja Scroll
Princess Mononoke
Samurai Champloo
Trigun

Suggested Manga to read:
All Rounder Meguru
Berserk
The Breaker
Histories Strongest Disciple Kennichi
One Piece
Pluto
Vagabond
Vinland Saga

Common Suggestions from Other Posters:
Death Note
Code Geass
Monster


The last two threads I listed a review for pretty much everything I had read or seen. I hoped it would be a way to spark discussion, but because it was essentially a wall of text it largely went ignored. Anybody who's curious about my opinions can go to the V2 thread and look at the first page.

The last thread left off with a discussion concerning the series Legend of the Galactic Heroes.

Best anime of 2010 = Milky Holmes (besides first two episodes)

Jienotsu agreed.

Are there (their?) any anime or manga like berserk that would possibly interest me.
I don't like the cutesy crap.

My post is full of spoilers.
Whoever didn't finish LOGH is recommended not to read it.


Problem with LOGH is that every commander that goes against Yang Wenli suddenly becomes an idiot. It's like one of those games where a character has an aura that reduces the stats of the enemies. Also, the Rozenritter were too overpowered. Any battle involving them was a massacre against the other side.

Julian Minci is one of the most annoying anime characters ever. And the way Reinhard gave mercy to the Iserlohn Republic pissed me off.

But overall I liked LOGH a lot. I can't think of an anime series with more than 100 episode that I like more than it. The prequels are good too. Magdalena von Westfalen was a cool character, shame she didn't appear a lot in the main series.

Basilisk
Baccano!
Ghost in the Shell
Cowboy Bebop
Ninja Scroll
Darker than Black

One of those should fit.

There.

Just kidding. BLADE OF THE IMMORTAL, manga not the anime.

Vagabond and Vinland Saga are both mature manga's that you might like.
