Can someone recommend me a nice slow-paced drama-ish/slice of life manga. Something like Solanin.

Thank you.

 

Pretty much everything Asano Inio has done, Nijigahara Holograph, Oyasami Punpun (my rec), Subarashii Sekai .....

Ciguatera, Yokohama Shopping Trip, Can´t See Can´t Hear But Love, Planetes (in space but still slow slice of life) and of course Watashi-tachi no Shiawase na Jikan

Can anyone recommend me anything good in the horror genre?  I don't really have much experience in horror anime/manga besides Higurashi, Umineko and I guess you could consider Shikabane Hime horror as well.  And please, not Highschool of the Dead.

You could try:

 

BioMeat

Ex-Shounen

Manhole

Emerging

Hohzuki Island

Cradle of Monsters

Variante

Higanjima

Shingeki no Kyojin

Sprite

 

I haven't read the ones below, but I see them talked about when Horror is brought up.

 

Uzumaki

Gyo

"Ass Pull": Often the first term people use to show how dissatisfied they are with something before it can be explained.

 

"Bull shit": often the first term used when a person expresses their dissatisfaction with something and they don't like the explaination.

Hmm, a few of those look pretty interesting.  I've heard Shingeki no Kyojin mentioned a lot before, and Higanjima, Emerging and Variante also seem good.  Thanks a bunch.

Shingeki no Kyojin is awesome though i'm not sure if we can say that it is horror.

 

Btw i'm looking for some 'INSANE' manga(if not then anime at least). Hm to be more precise something with main character acting totally normal but have something like switch on Insanity. Of course when that person will go insane i would appreciate if he/she was capable of gore/blood stuff. Without that it is no fun at all. Also semi good art is welcomed.

These two are about extremely sick psychotic individuals and are not for those bothered by that, mature, grotesque.  In both the mc is the psychotic.

With some of the content in Shingeki no Kyojin I think it could qualify as horror. Suppose it may depend on what you think makes up a horror. I'd say it has a lot of terror/fear of death among other things in it

That´s really specific but other than MPD Psycho which was already mentioned, Koroshiya 1 (Ichi the Killer) fits perfectly

Just a little warning (i don´t know what you are used to), both but especially Ichi the Killer can get really disgusting.

Ichi was probably one one the most disgusting manga I've ever read. Only pointless violence for the sake of violence. It's just my opinion, but this is shit.

 

Looking for an insane manga, Franken Fran is, for sure. And gore too, and you can consider that Fran, in a few aspects, is normal. Just a few though.

Doctor DuMing

MPD Psycho

Done, i read both of them. they are not bad. I really enjoyed first half of MPD. second half was also good but not like 1st.

Still it was not gore/insane/mad/psychotic enough for my personality. Something more horrible would be nice to have.

 

So again. Looking for Psychotic manga which ich full of Insanity/madness/(gore? well i don't need it but it is always part of story with Insane people). Semi-good art will be welcome

 

 

Just a little warning (i don´t know what you are used to), both but especially Ichi the Killer can get really disgusting.

Not really man. it was more like fight of cute puppies. Also, interesting but jesus. Disgusting? not really.

Well... I could say Shamo.

 

I mean, the main character is batshit insane and turns insaner as things go on, but it isn't that gory or... horror-some. It's martial marts manga actually. Just with an incredible character with incredible things going in in his mind.

 

I'll guess you've already read Hellsing and Berserk...

 

Well... What about the Baccano! anime? Just look at my avatar. : ) It can be very light-hearted at times, but there are some homicidal lunatics also.
