Hm, don't get around to read manga really, are more into anime from that part of the world :P

Although I did enjoy Hellsing a lot, but tearing London apart in multiple volumes felt a bit of ... overdoing it XD

Any here read/reading Gunslinger Girls? Rather love the take on "enhanced" child fighters, although it is another grip on the Halo mythos and Ender's Game kinda thing.

On anime side it is GitS SAC FTW! Although I am also a big fan of Haibane Renmai, Mushi-shi and .HACK//SIGN ;)


My comment to the discussion erupting in this thread: I think *someone* managed to view the hentai anime or manga and those cannot be said to be a representative of the genre as a whole. Some of the strongest female leads I have found in comics or cartoon are in anime and manga. Also many of the Asian movies contain strong females.

But I will admit: The anime/manga has an odd idea of fan service - my boobs obeys the law of gravity, the boob movements in some of those seem to defy gravity :lol: . Oh well - but hardly a deal breaker seeing the fan service from Hollywood contain girls in very tight leather outfits or skirts shorter than a finger nail. :wink:

Last manga I read from start to end was LIFE.
Still waiting and hoping that Saiyuki will come to an end :roll:

I've read the first few volumes of Soul Eater. Not bad, albeit somewhat variable, but I'm warming to it.

Haven't read Soul Eater, but watched a good bunch of the initial anime episodes. Took a bit warming up, but became rather fun I think.

Anyone read Pandora Hearts? I've uh.. only watched the anime, but heard it is manga too, just not sure if its worth hunting down :o
