/a/'s recommended manga images are a good starting point, but it's a big ol' medium with endlessly more variation than anime.

Terra Formars
BLAME!
Bleach, though I haven't read it since 2010

not reading manga obviously, I've watched 117 animu though
>>
>>100284749
I was actually going to switch Junji Ito for Asano Inio, but then I remembered that faggot wants to undergo a gender change. (Doesn't change the fact he still makes amazing work, check out his stuff as well if you want FEELS)
>>
Wakabayashi Toshiya’s 4-koma Collection
Mahou Sensei Negima!
Onepunch-Man
Shokugeki no Souma
Mx0
>>
In no real order.

Angel Densetsu.
Bitter Virgin.
Shigurui.
Kokou no Hito.
Legend of the Strongest Man Kurosawa.

My taste is pretty okay-ish and I'm really low on my manga reading.
But those are the ones that I either laughed the most or cried the most.
>>
>>100282697
Dude, don't read Black Lagoon next. Then anime for it is pretty good, but if you want a good manga after Berserk read Full Metal Panic
>>
1 - Berserk
2 - Claymore
3 - Onepunch Man
4 - Parasyte
5 - the horror stuff by that injii guy, forgot his full name

>considering a specific medium as objectively superior to another

And theres this faggot.
Anime can bring things manga can't, and manga can bring things anime can't. The only general rule you could make is to always prioritize the original work when you can. And then give a go to the adaptations. And it turns out manga often is the original work (after Light Novels). And happens to to often be done way better than it's Anime counterpart. But still, you shouldn't consider anime as shit or worse than manga just because of that anon.
>>
>>100284809
That's still beginner tier. Step up your game a bit.
>>
>>100284809
The standard to be posting on /a/ is to watch 300 anumu, read over 100 manga and read over 10 VN.

Please come back when you've accomplished all that.

Current favourite manga, in no particular order:
- Bleach
- Akame ga Kill!
- Haganai
- Torikago Gakkyuu
- Zekkyou Gakkyuu

at least im close enough. if you add all the eps watched in my watching list and dumped list, it's easily more than 300 animu's worth of eps.
>>
>>100285128
Who the hell reads VN? The only one I did was katawa shoujo or whatever it s called.
>>
>>100285289
>not reading VN
>only read KS
Christ forsaken us, the time is nigh, the fall is upon us, the day of reckoning is near.

Seriously, at least read a couple VNs here and there.
>>
>>100285289
VN are usually better than anime so gtfo if you've never read

Ever17
Swan Song
Saya No Uta
Ef- A fairy tale of the two
Demonbane
Wanko to Kurasou
>>
>>100285289
Try saya no uta, ever 17, remember 11, if you haven't seen the anime you can also enjoy umineko (the VN is superior by far), G senjou no mao and sharin no kuni are okay as well.

Manga is undeniably the superior artistic medium.

There's more leeway for artists to do what they want without trying to sell merchandise and appeal to demographics. Anime just skims a few auteurs from the top so they can do inferior adaptations of something that's already popular.
>>
>>100285245
It's edgy, has a lot of death (so deep xD) and is unknown/popualr enough to be a hipster.

I'll enjoy seeing the threads for it go to shit once the anime starts airing.
>>
>>100284250
>>100284370
>Battle Royale

I'm surprised. The few times I see it is because someone is making fun of the art; which is a shame.
>>
>>100285351
Higurashi, Umineko, Forest, Griasia (only read the Common route, the rest is shit), S;G, Symphonic Rain, Little Buster, Planetarian, Rewrite, and >>100285371 the last two.

There's a bunch of good VNs to read.
>>
>>100285497
What about ghost trick?
>>
>>100285487
Battle Royale is in the ''it's so bad it's good''.

Especially when you got fucking Dracula just destroying the entire fucking game.
>>
>>100285434
You lower the IQ of everyone who reads this thread with these type of posts.

>>100285497
Too bad that a lot fo those suck. A medium only written by otakus is doomed to fail.
>>
>>100285537
Not really a VN but good game.
Phoenix Wright game might be considered a VN, since it is a bunch of readring and minimal gameplay with only selection items/paths, but most consider it a game more than a VN.

Either way, Ghost Tricks is fun.
>>
Hi no Tori
Apollo no Uta
Buddha
Kirihito Sanka

Why are people so quick to recommend manga when this thread would be full of Boku no Pico replies if OP substituted "manga" with "anime"?

Not that I really care, but it's kind of a strange double standard. If someone is new to the medium, I'd recommend he tries new series by himself, rather than try to tackle the big names, so to speak.
>>
>>100292221
Anime is shit, what are you expected?
>>
>>100292221
Because manga fans are better people than animufags
>>
Rurouni Kenshin
Vinland Saga
Sun-Ken Rock
Blade of the Immortal
Mirai Nikki

>>100285289
Try reading some more. Some personal favorites:

Ever 17
Fate/Stay Night
Planetarian
Clannad
G-Senjou no Maou
Sharin no Kuni
>>
>>100292327
You know what, replace Mirai Nikki with Great Teacher Onizuka. I just remembered I started to dislike MN because of the weak MC.

I'm in the same boat as you OP, I haven't read that many mangas. So far, Oyasumi Punpun was the best one I've come across
>>
>>100292469
>I'm in the same boat as you OP
Please refrain from using that word in a thread that was started with a Berserk picture.
>>
>>100282697

Berserk
Battle Angel Elita
Onepunch Man
Attack on Titan
Dorohedoro

All gritty and strange, not much deviation from tone.

I still read Naruto and Bleach compulsively but I'm not sure they're in my top 5.

Honorable mentions, Vinland Saga, Apocalypse no Toride.

The Gamer is an up and coming that's quickly making my lists, we'll see where that goes.

Mushishi

Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou
