Not sure if this is the right place for it, but meh.

Does anyone else read manga? I usually prefer anime over manga (assuming the anime and manga I'm comparing follow the exact same story and the manga has no fillers), but here are a few that I'm currently reading:

07 ghost
Naruto
Kuroshitsuji
Loveless
Tsubasa RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE
Katekyo Hitman Reborn!
Junjou Romantica

Most of the shorter series I'll read in one or two sittings, so there isn't much point listing them :( Looking for some new series to start too.

Except for the ending, the anime follows the Death Note manga really well (almost word for word, scene for scene XD)

Huh. So the Death Note anime has a different ending to the Manga? I might have to watch the anime now....

I'm currently reading Battle Royale. Some awesomely awesome violence to be had reading that and also Dragon Head

If you wanted to read about ninjas, Naruto isn't the best Manga for that.

They're not real ninjas.

Haha. True. True. Maybe I should finally pick up Lone Wolf & Cub...then again, that's samurai and ronin, what do you recommend? Also, Orphen, did that have a manga? I loved the anime! GOOD ENDING!

OR, read/watch Basalisk

i really liked that series


Basilisk...I think I read a teaser of that somewhere and it seemed intense. Recommend it?

i really liked it personally. i've only read one of the volumes, but got the animated series, and loved it. pretty certain the anime pretty much follows the manga to the letter, and the story is based on some sort of japanese history/legend

its pretty much your classic romeo and juliet scenario, star-crossed lovers held back by the obligations to their respective warring families.


but with NINJAs ^_^

The manga is so f***ed up. Rape, sex, heads been blown off, drugs, sh*t blowing up, kids getting shot, kids raping each other, kids killing each other, this pedo teacher guy. So screwed.

Oh yeah, and it's in our school library! :karate:

Library of wellington high school.
Strangely though, I like Battle Royale, it has a top-notch story and excellent art.
And its pretty addictive.
