Greetings everyone, I am Jade and I am new to Manga! I've know about it for years and had been wondering where to start on this massive genre. The artwork is superb and out of this world, and I have always head great appreciation an reverence to those who create such imaginative and life-like art!

 

It was a few months ago in May when I stumbled upon an analysis video on a character from a favorite RPG that greatly captured my interest that I decided to watch the youtubers other videos. One of them was about a Manga series known as Berserk. The video did contain spoilers, but that didn't matter, everything I heard and the scans that were shown blew me away like only a few other things have done in my life! I immediately bough the first volume on Amazon and was quite eager to get it. Once in my hands from the first few pages I was hooked! And before I continued I purchased Volumes 2-4. One finished with the first volume I knew I had stumbled upon something extraordinary. I just had to have the entire set. Thankfully it was my birthday and I spent every cent collecting the series - and I did some extra chores around the house and just over a month from getting the first volume I had all 38 volumes, nicely stacked together on my shelf and displayed proudly! And yes, I also finished reading them all. I am currently re-reading again, but in a much slower pace to fully appreciate the artwork and scope of the series.

 

Although I am currently broke, lol, I am searching for others in the genre to get interested in and compiling a wish-list for future purchases! I've watched many youtube videos about other readers and their recommendations. Attack on Titan looks interesting and maybe my next one to read... But I look forward to finding suggestions on this site.

 

Berserk was my first (and will always be my favorite), but I consider myself a fan of the genre and am eager to discover what amazing artwork and stories I will be embarking on :) This is another one of those phenomenon successes in our world and I'm glad to be apart of it!

Hello. Welcome to OMF. 

 

If your looking for good suggestions on future manga's. Then I'll throw out these nice titles. 

 

Fullmetal Alchemist
Rurouni Kenshin
DeathNote
Hellsing
Black Lagoon
Shin Angyo Onshi
Battle Royale
Basilisk
Akira
 
Look them up and see if they catch your interest. If not and there's a specific story type your looking for in a manga, then I suggest you go to the "Manga Recommendation" thread. There you can ask for suggestions about manga's that are of a certain genre, etc. 
 

Show me the way to go home - I'm tired and I want to go to bed
I had a little drink about an hour ago - And it’s gone right to my head
Wherever I may roam - On land or sea or foam
You can always hear me singing this song
Show me the way to go home.
