Manga & Anime Recommendations:

 1 Schitzo, Sat, 15th May '10 4:29:37 PM from Akumajou Dracula Relationship Status: LA Woman, you're my woman

Here, we ask for recommendations on Animes and Mangas (one thread was already made for general media in Yackfest).

I'm looking for two types of work right now:
  • One with similar themes to Berserk, such as the whole Willingness and Audacity To Fight Impossible Odds, and something that focuses on character relationships and the like.
  • A short anime/ manga with a lot of HSQ, but without having to resort to Mind Screw for a majority of it's humor.

As for the second one: Potemayo.
Always, somewhere, someone is fighting for you. As long as you remember them, you are not alone.
For the second one, try Sengoku Basara.

Moronic, pretentious fan
For that first one, have you by any chance read Gantz? It's similarly dark and, at least later on, similarly heroic.

Don't watch the anime though. Filler kills, kiddies.
Because I choose to.

Oh My
Please all mighty forum suggest to me manga or anime primarily focused on transgenderism. Transvestites, transsexuals, genderqueers. They are all welcome.

Do not suggest Hourou Musuko or Family Compo. I have already read said series. Also anything remotely resembling Oto Boku or whatever that show is called or Maria†Holic will be met by me with extreme hatred. Do not suggest I My Me! Strawberry Eggs as I am already planning to watch that.

^There's always Ranma ½. Maybe Simoun.

I like Ranma and Simoun but I have already seen those. Ranma isn't quite what I'm looking for...Simoun was closer, but didn't play with the gender thing as much as I would've liked. My favorite bit of that show was when that guy couldn't decide which sex to pick and became depressed over becoming male. Said person was never very important.

Manga Toshokan's list of gender bender series.

This post has been thumped with the mod stick. This means knock it off.

...All I can say is calm down Smokie. It doesn't matter all that much...Also thanks for that list Hylarn.

@ Smokie.

I've made an official and easy to find one. All others are too vague.

Will you keep your voice down?

Yeah, that's the point Smokie. It's supposed to be a catch-all thread. Actually, we ought to sticky it.

Oooh a sticky on this would be nice. Then we wouldn't have to dig through other threads if it hasn't been updated in a while.

Smokie does have a point, there have been plenty "official" recommendations threads, all of which have died quickly, making space for the next, and, frankly, any individual recommendation request could be posted in the Chatterbox thread.

^^Only one, actually. The rest were specific to the person posting it.

Said thread death is why a sticky would be nice.

I'd imagine I'm the only one who would keep threads alive since i'm not all that well versed in a lot of fiction anyway.

If we actually want to keep the number of threads down we'll want to sticky this. Newbies wouldn't use the chatterbox.

Should we pm a mod then?

In honor of my 50lb pup
I say, PM a mod AFTER we prove this is worth sticky-ing. AKA: get back on topic and stay on topic for a couple of pages first.

Have nothing else to add atm.

Gilgamesh is awesome to perfection.
Something with decent art quality, good action sequences, preferably low amounts of comedy and a fairly high HSQ.

Battle Angel Alita: Last Order may be for you. Fighting to change the world; some navel-gazing; many, many fight scenes; and how, even if you have REAL ULTIMATE POWER, the world becomes a shit-tip or a paradise because of the actions of people.

Seconding Potemayo. If you haven't seen it, FLCL.
Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.
