Might as well.
 
 
So I finished Blade of the Immortal a few months ago and haven't really cracked into anything new since. I felt like I needed to sit back for awhile. BotI was a big read I spread over a number of years. But I just ordered the first volumes of a couple other series to jump into: Vagabond and Die Wergelder (Hiroaki Samura's new project).
 
Anyone else? Stormy?
 
I know there are Berserk fans here. I haven't gotten into that one yet.

Those two, and Berserk, are the big three of Manga.

I'm still trying to finish Gantz. Hiroya Oku is my sheperd, for I fear nothing to be unleashed in this dreaded world of ours.

The first image and the Berserk one are broken. 
 
i am aware of Battle Royale and Berserk, but I have not read them yet. I know Berserk to be a top notch piece of work and it's on my to read list.
 
If you haven't read or don't know/acknowledge Blade of the Immortal, you have no clue, though.
fucking Hiroaki Samura :xx::::;;;

Berserk is a long series. Plus, you can start by watching the original anime to get into it. The Manga of course, is ten thousand times better, but the anime is pretty awesome too.
 
Better to start with Ichi the Killer (first pic) and Battle Royale. These are smaller animes with storylines that actually end - as opposed to never ending storylines on some of these long lasting mangas. The story and art are top notch. No bullshit.
 
Read em on spectrum nexus website.

I will take those recommendations :xx:
 
But I'll wait to watch the anime until I've read deep into the manga.

I'd venture to say it's the only one worth reading extensively. At least plot-wise it seems devoid of all the anime cliches for the most part.

Ichi the Killer and Battle Royale have an original and interesting plot too
