    So I usually lurk these areas, and it seems people are somewhat adamant about reading mangas. ibWho the fuck are you? :greddy:

    I started reading 20th Century Boy, written by naoki urasawa. He's best known for the manga/anime series 'Monster'. They're both mystery/psycho-thriller, heraled as being top notch series, and they're definitely worth the time. If you like action or shounen stuff, this isn't for you, but if you like series that focuses on plot and character development, then :bowdown::bowdown::bowdown:

    http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/manga.php?id=3424

    I'm not gonna bother summarizing/copy-pasting the information. :o
    It's projected to be 22 volumes long, and it's been licensed, but if you dig around a bit, you can find fan scanlations of it easily. Final volume, titled 21st Century Boy, is in works, and are being scanlated already, but I'm holding out on it to be completed. :o

    I'm sure some people on here have read it or at least heard about it. Just thought it's worth mentioning it out to those who haven't. :hsd:

    yeah, if you're like me, and go through 10 volumes in one sitting, i suggest you hold off on until the last volume's done. shouldn't be much longer :o

    The manga is amazing. I read up to volume 20 in about 1 week. The beginning is kind of slow but it draws you in. The characters are likeable and the plot is really deep.
