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".

Are there more food-related mangas? I know of Yakitate! Japan (bread) and Addicted to Curry (curry, obviously). I'll probably torture myself by reading those and making myself hungry, but they're still interesting.

theres an anime about cooking which is kind of old but still good, cooking master boy. It definitely made my mouth water.

Hi. I really enjoyed watching Ouran High School Host Club. Can anyone recommend any other animes similar to this? Something funny and romantic, with pretty animation :) Thanks!

( a little of everything) :P

Rurouni Kenshin -- this anime has everything in it, comedy, action, romance and little of angst and moral lessons. Set during the Japanese feudal era.

Inuyasha-- this anime has everything in it too, comedy, romance, action. And cool opening and ending themes sung by popular J-pop artist.

Vampire GAme-- this is a manga, its fun and with lots of action. I love Duzzell!

Howl's Moving Castle-- if its a HAyao Miyazawa work, it is beautiful. I fell in love with this movie. The story line is so touching, the romance and the artwork, even my mom loved it. :blush:

(Mechas.. or those robot style anime)

Evangelion -- the story line intrigues me alot and so does the mecha. If you like angst and some dark storylines, this is a good one.

Tenkuu no Escaflowne-- although I didn't watch the entire series and just the movie, I love the story that surrounds Prince Van and Hitomi, somewhat like a sad romance thingy.

Magic Knight Rayearth -- okay lots of bishounens here..totally.. and of course I'm a fan of Clamp. Its more about three girls going to this alternative world and are forced to save it.


X/1999 -- i am in love with the artwork of this one, both in the anime and manga. It's a dark story with lots of violence, not for the faint hearted. But gosh the artwork is to die for. Once again I am a fan of CLAMP.

Yami No Matsuei-- dark storyline with all those angst..

(romantic comedy..)

OURAN HIGH SCHOOL HOST CLUB-- my current fave! To be surrounded by beautiful boys, what more can Haruhi Fuijoka ask.. :P

Love Hina-- this is also funny..

..and many more..this is all i can think about..ive watched so many anime, i forgot the others.. ;)

hey guys, I'm currently in the mood to read a romance manga but I prefer the romance to be a little more mature and deep than the typical "he's so hot I'm so in love with him, does he like me too?" type of plot. So can you guys recommend me some good romance manga? (please, nothing like The Wallflower, Parfait Tic, Goong, Fushigi Yugi, Hana Kimi, Peach Girl, etc., you get the drill -____-)

I like romance manga like the following (they are also my recommendations :))

Sensei - a girl who falls in love with her teacher, but the romance is subtle yet very beautiful, it develops slowly while the main girl grows up and matures, it's a very addictive read.

Koi Kaze - it's incest, but the emotions are very genuine and heart-wrenching, it's also portrayed realistically which I like.

Nodame Cantabile - more of a comedy than romance, but still, the relationship between the two main characters is cute yet not sugarly sweet and shallow.

Honey&Clover - bittersweet.

Mars - very dark shoujo, full of angst and sadness, but the romance is also one of the best.

Kare Kano - not really my favorite, but I like their romance, it's a bit different than the norm.

I just noticed that the main male character in these mangas are not particularly extremely good-looking and perfect in every way. They all have flaws, and that's maybe why I like the characters so much. So uhm yea, any recommendations :lol:??

Excuse me for being totally ignorent!! But what's a manwha?

I read a cooking manga called Iron Wok Jan!

:o:lol: That's alright. A "manhwa" is what they call a Korean comic or manga, as how it's referred to in Japanese! ;)

Can anyone reccomend me an anime(s) as good or even better than Bleach or Death Note? I'm not really into girls that have annoyuing voices and I like them dark and suspenseful

Definitely reccomending Death Note to those that likes something that keeps you guessing and Bleach for pure awesomness
