I freakin' love Gantz! Except for its ending. *sighs* The ride was fun tho.

I never checked out Deadman Wonderland. I'll try it out.

But I really like dark, horror, mystery mature series like that. Berserk, Battle Royale, Gantz, Attack on Titan, Monster, Ninja Scrolls and stuff.

try claymore and some samurai ninja manga like vangabond and wait i check it out first

btw try ichi the killer if you dare

ares is good, but not dark,

baki series is gore but not dark

What's Gantz about? I never seen it or read it but is it good? I heard good and bad things about it...Is it based on the manga? Or do they make up their own ending?

Assuming you're talking about Uzumaki, yea that's him. First thing I ever read of his was the Enigma of Amigara Fault.

read the manga, you wouldnt be disappointed

from my experience manga is usually better as anime tend to overdo it (even though there's some case where anime is much more better, because of the ost etc, but its kinda hit or miss)

some great manga like one piece and naruto, when they create the anime and add all of the stuff and side story to prolong the series its become painful too watch

i recommend you using site like kissmanga or mangapark, where you can view it all page per chapter (no need to click next every page)

I read Claymore, but I prematurely stopped reading it. I always meant to pick it back up again. And I read a little of Vagabond! I liked what I read. It's also a series that I've been meaning to pick up again.

And I never heard of Ichi the Killer, Baki, and Ares. I have a lot of manga on my to do list Thanks for suggestion of some manga series!

Gantz is a little weird to describe. I think it's best just to go in blind. I would tell you that it's a action/sci fi/horror type of manga/anime.

Oh. IMO, it's better if you read the manga. As VIntageNOvel said, you won't be disappointed. The anime followed the manga to a point and then drifts off (after the 1st phase). Personally, I found the tension in the manga better than the anime because the anime sometimes distracts you with filler in the middle of a tense battle or scene. I also found the english dub annoying in Gantz. Sub is better, but I think the manga is the way to go until they decide to do a Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood and redo the anime.

Again, like VIntageNOvel said, usually the manga is better than anime in my experience too. There are some exceptions tho. Gantz isn't one of them for me. The manga is the way to go.

try ichi first, i feel like it would suit you

btw my problem with the unfinished manga is when you want to pick it up again, you dont know what chapter to start and sometimes you forget the story, the reason why i havent read berserk again, because everytime i want to pick it up, i would have to re-read it from chapter 1 again so i will wait until its finished

jammeer, is this the thread where you posted those young girls bouncing tits and I reported? if so,

It really was inappropriate though. Well at least you didn't get banned. Now i will not come in here unless you go trolling again.

Golden time is a pretty cool anime, if you like semi-serious college love stories...

Golden Boy was hilarious. Whoever did the voice of Kintaro in the dub was amazing.
