I recommend Rosario Vampire manga. You've no idea what you're missing, lol. The anime was an absolute disgrace though, so dont go off of that.

Trigun. The anime is really good, and I heard the manga was good as well.

Can anyone recommend some manga for me to read?

The most important thing is that the series have finished publishing. Preferably less action-oriented and not so much gore and/or horror; more on the light-hearted side, I guess. Other than that, I'll take pretty much anything. Comedy, romance, psychological, sci-fi, etc. Oh, except sports.

Not all of the manga i read, just the ones i think you'd like. (the ones in red aren't finished but I still recommend reading them)

Boku no Pico

Never Again

Oh and I recommend Kamisama no memochou (http://myanimelist.net/anime/10568/Kamisama_no_Memochou).

I just finished Mirai Nikki (Future Diary) and simply cannot stress how great it is, I recommend it whole-heartedly. It's a tad slow to begin with but the final 6 episodes are phenomenal, literally left in tears and feels and a dropped jaw. Best anime of the year for me. Give it a gander.

Aaahh.... my heart... is so at peace right now...so relaxing... <3

There really is nothing like a simple, cute, pure, honest, romance story to heal your heart and make you feel like everything is ok with the world.

If you're tired of all the drama, violence, meaningless sex, or whatever, and just want to relax with a nice, sweet story, go give Bonnouji a try.

It's really nothing more than the story of one adult couple's romance. No drama. No bulls***.
And yes, they are an adult couple. They have jobs, they go out drinking with their friends, and they do make love. If it were any other manga, it would be boring as hell, but somehow the way the characters in Bonnouji live their lives, and how they interact with each other, is written so well, and so real, that one can't help but open up their hearts and just go with the flow of the story.

So yeah, that's my two cents about this. It's finished in japan but there's still two chapters left to be translated so you might wanna wait until it's done before you start it.


Also, let's try and get this thread some more action!

It's decent, imo. A lot of things aren't properly explained though. I recommend watching the OVAs before season 2.

Has anyone here seen Star Driver, and if so, is it any good?

I quite like it. If you're interested in it for the mechas or action, though, I'd recommend against watching it. The mecha scenes are probably the worst parts of the anime.

The best parts of the anime are definitely the characters and their interactions with each other IMO.

Well, I am slightly interested in the mecha genre, but not really. I did like Gurren Lagann. I tried watching the first few episodes of G Gundam, but I just couldn't get into it. lol Actually, I never really got into the Gundam series in general.

It's definitely not Gurren Lagann, that's for sure. There's a lot less emphasis on action, and it's not as over-the-top, if at all. They're not really comparable.

One thing I need to mention is that Star Driver starts out quite slow. The first few episodes concentrate on character development, and it only really picks up around episode 7 or so.

Anyone know of an anime I can watch that is a slice of life and action, but has nothing to do with sports, fighting, or all of the things that make Nichijou funny?
