My Fave Manga and Anime

lucy love

What can I say? I’m hooked on Anime and Manga. Mostly tragedies. (All the best ones are.) How good are they? Let’s just say, these tragedies make Shakespeare’s look like disney movies.

For the uninitiated: “Manga” is the Japanese equivalent to “Comic Book” or “Graphic Novel”. “Anime” is the equivalent of an “animated series.” I know eventually somebody is gonna blast my definitions here, but I’m trying to make things as simple as I can.


  • Akira [Anime]
  • Elfen Lied  [The Anime is awesome. The Manga is incredible!]
  • Oldboy  [Manga + the korean film]
  • Ergo Proxy (Anime – full episodes online)
  • Blassreiter [Anime – the animation isn’t great and the voice casting is kinda terrible, but the story is awesome]
  • Darker Than Black [Anime. Based on the amazing Manga: Bones]
  • Kill la Kill [Anime – I didn’t like this one at first, but it grows on you.]
  • Death Note [Manga + Anime]
  • Rin [Anime – Erotic and Awesome!!]
  • High School of the Dead  [Anime – full episodes online]
  • Fate/Zero [Anime – the ending left a lot to be desired, but it was a fun ride.]
  • Angel Beats [Anime –  there’s no way to convince anyone that this show is any good by the trailer, but if you give it a chance, stick with it, the ending of the show will break your fucking heart!!]
  • Chaos Head  [Anime – A really cool concept. I was so disappointed that it was over so soon. I want more!]
  • Kaze No Stigma [Anime –  this one is rather childish. Definitely a teeny bopper show… and a guilty pleasure.]
  • Psycho Pass
  • Sword Art Online
  • Deadman Wonderland
  • Attack on Titan
  • Kite

Otaku Journalist An interesting perspective on the state of Anime, and why certain flavors of it are looked down upon as low art.



  1. I also love Elfen Lied. But hey Andi, if you want another really good manga, try this one:
    It’s called Reversible! and it tells the story of super-cute effeminate boys who have to cross dress in an all boys boarding school and end up falling in love with each other. You can’t miss it, it’s too fucking good, the dream of every sissy in the world like me. 😀

  2. Thanks. I liked it. Kinda wished it went to other places, but still very cool. Thank you.
