Not sure if anyone posted this already, but highly recommend Akatsuki no Yona. Not many people know of it, but it's an amazing shojo. And not manga or manhwa, but if anyone's interested in dark h

I did a brief search and found no one talks about My Hero Academia in this thread. The story has decent and logical progression as to how the main lead and his classmates grow to become a true "hero".

oh ive been reading bnha i really enjoy it! have any other suggestions for me?

Guest sukixyume

How come Full Moon and Kamikaze Kaitou were mentioned but not Shinshi Doumei Cross by Arina Tanemura? xD

I also liked Moe Kare by Ikeyama Go, even though it's a little too mushy and cliche.

Can anyone recommend me any good anime series? Something that involves action, and has a really good storyline? Nothing super gory like every episode or something :sweatingbullets:

Here's a few series I have watched so far:

Darker than Black (I just recently finished this series, and I loved it!)

Death Note <3

Code Geass

Honey and Clover

FMA

Naruto/Shippuuden

Bleach

Trinity Blood

..and there's more, but I'm too lazy to type it all :rolleyes:

Cowboy Bebop, Trigun, Baccano!.. great storyline with nice amount of action.

Soul Eater.. still airing, 38/51 eps as of now.

Mitchiko to Hatchin.. I think the storyline is genius, animation is a work of art, music in this anime is great. It's still airing though. About 10 eps out I think? 22 total. Or something. Ah.

Ergo proxy.. The storyline is DEFINITELY genius for this one.. however, downside is, lack of action may be there. It has action, but this anime moves slow at some points. But story's good, yah! ;D

Higurashi no naku koro ni.. this has 2 seasons, both are VERY good. Storyline is great + action is there. It's a psychological thriller. Uhmm, it's not super gory EVERY episode, but there is gore and scary moments. It's considered 'horror' though I personally don't think it's that scary. There are just a lot of "wtf?" moments, but I think this anime is ace.

& since you liked Honey and Clover, give Lovely Complex and Nana a try. The storylines are good, but they are shoujo, so cliche romantic comedic values will be included. xDDD

Ah, thank you so much for the recommendations! I've already watched Cowboy Bebop, but the rest of them seems interesting. I'll surely give them a try. I'm not too worried about a lot of action, but a good storyline is all I need, as well as good animation. XD

Thanks so much again~ I appreciate your help ;)

When she enters high school, she finally meets her match: Soichiro Arima, a handsome, athletic, popular, and very intelligent young boy. Ever since he stole the top seat in the class from her, Yukino has hated him, and has been plotting on how to take back her former place as the object of all other students' admiration.

Shinshi Doumei Cross should definitely be on this list.

It's such a good manga!

You can never go wrong with works by Arina Tanemura~

Also, I recommend Ultra Maniac, since it isn't up there yet.

And shouldn't Cardcaptor Sakura be up there on the list too? O____O

I thought it was a classic...

My all-time favourites:

Kare Kano!

Yukino Miyazawa is really, really vain, and loves to hear people praise her. She's always been the best at everything, and always tries to look perfect. But when Yukino goes to high school, she's finally upstaged--by Souichiro Arima, who scores better on the entrance exams and instantly snatches the attention of the class. By accident, Arima finds out that Yukino is just pretending, and this starts off a series of events that lead to Yukino and Arima falling in love. They then have to cope with a lot of obstacles in their relationship.

Yukino Miyazawa, the Queen of Vanity, is the 'perfect student' - smart, pretty, athletic and has an overall nice personality. What everyone in her school didn't know was that behind the perfect facade lies a different person. She is always the best in anything - but an obstacle comes her way. The obstacle's name is Souichirou Arima. Souichirou Arima is chosen as the representative of the freshmen, not Miyazawa. Thus, she strives hard to defeat him in all aspects. But a day comes when her most-hated enemy comes to find out her secret. From treating Arima as an enemy, friendship blossoms. Soon love comes. Kare Kano is a story that revolves all around the pangs and beauty of first love.

Beauty Pop

Although a truly gifted hairstylist, Kiri Koshiba has no interest in using her talent to pursue fame and fortune, unlike the three popular boys in the "Scissors Project" at school. They give showy makeovers to handpicked girls, determined to become the best makeover team in Japan. As much as Kiri tries to shy away from the Scissors Project spotlight, she finds herself responding to beauty's call.

Gakuen Alice <3

In a small country school, Sakura Mikan and Imai Hotaru are classmates and best friends - in their own way. Ditzy, emotional Mikan seems ill-matched with aloof, emotionless Hotaru, yet they are together all the time... until Hotaru gets called away to study at the strange and forbidding Alice Academy. In her anguish at being left behind, Mikan finally decides to follow her friend - and doing so, she makes a strange discovery.

young Mikan Sakura is a girl from a Japanese countryside. optimistic, playful Mikan enjoys life to the lees. but suddenly one day, she is thrown in a state of utter dilemma and sadness when her best friend, the brilliant, cool and quite opposite natured Hotaru Imai leaves the country school to join some mysterious Alice Academy. determined to be reunited with her best friend, mikan goes on an uncertain journey to Alice Academy. eventually, she finds out that she is also an alice, a candidate eligible to enter the acdemy. thus her new life begins in a totally new environment.

And Skip Beat

Of course the manga of all the series are better. :)
