Throw me recommendations, dickheads.
well what kinda manga do you want to read?
My two first recommendations you should read regardless of what you wanted.
Hoshi no Samidare (Lucifer & Biscuit Hammer) is an instant recommendation of mine, simply it is to the mahou genre (specifically, a bunch of kids saving the world with magic and talking animal friends) what gurren lagann is to the mecha genre. Never takes itself seriously, always good fun, some awesome fight scenes and shit, etc etc.
Also great is Watashitachi no Shiawase na Jikan, a short 8 chapter manga about an attempted suicide pianist and a death-row inmate. It's pretty short but absolutely beautiful and heartwrenching.
Then some other greats: Great Teacher Onizuka (hilarious black comedy), Welcome to the NHK (black comedy, but much more emphasis on the black than GTO. Very dark and disturbing, much more so than the anime), 20th Century Boys and Monster (both psychological drama/mystery sorta stuff), Pluto (same as above but also scifi about robots n stuff). legend of the strongest man kurosawa is another black comedy, it takes a couple of volumes to get going but the last half of it is incredibly gripping and outstanding.
idk what else... eden it's an endless world if you like to read stuff where EVERYONE DIES, jiraishin if you want the most inappropriate ending to a manga ever, sanctuary if you want a political/yakuza based drama, planetes for more sci-fi (although I preferred the anime myself, probs because i watched that first)
