I haven't seen this talked about in a while and was just thinking it would be a good thing to get going so I can maybe find some new things to read or watch, because while I have read plenty of good manga's I've hardly seen a good anime in some time.

 

So any Anime recommendations would be appreciated!

 

Here's my top 5 Manga/Manhwa right now

 

1, Sidonia no Kishi(Knights of Sidonia)

It's the latest and possibly greatest thing yet from Tsutomu Nihei, the guy that wrote Blame! and Biomega(both also well worth the read).  He's probably the best thing going in manga right now, his grand scale future dystopia has been fascinating stuff, this one unlike the others is getting turned into a Anime and I cant wait, truly great stuff.

 

2, Tower of God,

It's a Manhwa(Korean webcomic), It's a bit hard to explain without reading but it's plot isnt too deep, it's about a set of characters that try and climb a tower(that each floor is the size of north america), which at reaching the top they will be granted what ever it is that they desire.  It's best part though is that it has great character development and is fairly entertaining, overall very good.

 

3, Gantz

It's about a high school boy who dies and is brought back to life and play in these games to hunt aliens on earth, eventually he discovers the real reason behind it all as the true threat arrives.  this scifi epic is fairly original in many ways, it's also nearing it's end which means its a good time to start reading. It's got your standard sex blood and violence so not for the kids.  there is also an Anime for this but it was low budget so not half as good as the manga

 

4, Deadman Wonderland

It's about a kid who's entire class is kill by "The Red Man" and everyone thinks he did it and ends up getting sent to this Jail that doubles as a amusement park called "Deadman Wonderland" where he is thrown into gladiatorial matches to the death(with strange powers), it is written by Jinsei Kataoka and illistrated by Kazuma Kondou (Eureka Seven) 

 

5, Shingeki no Kyojin(Attack on Titan)

This one takes place in the far off future where all humans must live behind these 50 meter tall walls that are needed to keep the Titans out, which are creatures that eat humans and vary in size but usually are no taller then 30 meters.  After 200 years a Giant Titan breaks a whole in this wall and the story picks up from there, it's also been turned into a Anime called Attack on Titan viewable on Crunchyroll.com

 

 

If you have some you like feel free to share

 Welp, I've read a bit of all of these now. 

 

Gantz, Attack on Titan, Tower of God and Deadman wonderland are pretty spiffy.

 

Not a fan of Knights just yet.

Knights may be more of an acquired taste, I've been reading his stuff for a while and have loved it(blame!, Biomega)

 

I guess you could say I'm just a fan of future dystopia Sci-fi  :-D

Btw word is there is a live action Cowboy BeBop in the works as well as the creator saying that a certain character that you think died may have survived after all, which could be a hint of a season 2.

Wishful thinking :-D

If you're not reading Feng Shen Ji then you support terrorism, child soldiers, and the Saints.

Been on an Attack on Titan kick lately. Also been reading this Corean manga called Girls of the Wild. Pretty good manga if I do say so myself. Basically battle royale but with a small twist. All girl school that specializes in martial arts turns co ed and one guy is in the school now. So its a harem. The fights are pretty cool for the most part. Its getting close to issue 100 I think.

 

As far as anime I have not been able to watch much other than AOT.

I think that I just started reading Girl's the Wild. Is that the one about the dude who'll die if he gets aroused and ends up at an all-girl high school with martial arts gangs?
