Personally, I like (Manga)
-One Piece
-Full Metal Alchemist
-Soul Eater
-Kuroshitsuji (Before the Zombie arc they're on now, to me that's just annoying)
-Claymore
-D.Gray Man
-Black Cat
-Gintama
-Deathnote
-Liar Game

Recently, however, I've been getting into novels. Especially
-Legendary Moonlight Sculptor
-Eclipse Hunter
-Sword Art Online

In terms of recommendations, though, are there any good manga/novels which have a strong fantasy element or are gaming related?
I'm looking for obscure titles, because chances are, I've read the more known ones.

I recommended Beck, it's a masterpiece on it's own.
Full of emotion and the way the character intertwined gave perfect setting.

Mangaka asistant or something like that. Have many cute girls. Most of them are flat-chest though lol.

But so far, I like it. Various personality and some of them are tsundere character. The main character is hilarious as well.

If you're mostly looking for eye candy, To-LOVE-ru is pretty decent. To-LOVE-ru: Darkness is decent-er. Ichigo 100% is good, but I found it to be a downer sometimes. Negima! is mostly full of 15 year olds, if that bothers you. However, a few of them are secretly old enough to ogle and only feel like the basic level of perv. Try and guess who they are as you read. I think you'll be surprised.

Hey guys.

I've been watching anime and reading manga for...well over a decade now and I'm trying to take it to the next level.
I'm getting back into learning Japanese (took a 121 level college class about 2 years go but haven't had the time for the next course) and plan on reading child-level raw manga to make it more fun.

I've already decided to start out with Yotsubato! because I LOVE the fun stories and crisp artwork.  Does anyone have any other suggestions that might work for me?

(note that at the moment I only know a handful of kanji, so furigana is a must)

Thanks for the imput in advanced! :hi:

Well I would recomend "Kuragehime". It's a cute manga, the Genres are: Comedy,  Gender Bender,  Josei,  Romance,  Slice of Life.

Description
Kurashita Tsukimi is an 18-year-old 'kurage otaku' (jellyfish fanatic). She lives in Tokyo in an all-female apartment complex full of various types of otaku. They fear and despise beautiful, fashionable people while existing happily in their no-man, no make-up world.
That all changes when a 'hipster' saves the life of a jellyfish and intrudes upon Tsukimi's isolated existence. Things are made even more complicated when it turns out that the beautiful woman is actually a man in drag. (manga updates).

 :hi:

I'd recommend these manga:

Boku wa tomodachi ga sukunai - By Itachi, based on a light novel, it's the story about a guy who, due to his physical appearance, has difficulties to make friends. He meets a weird girl who talks to an imaginary friend, and they end up creating a club where they learn how to create friendship.

Tomehane - It's the story of a Japanese returnee, who used to live abroad. He ends up joining a calligraphy club and shows talent.

Fullmetal Alchemist!!! It's definitely one of the best shonen manga out there, and has 2 great anime adaptations.
I'd also check out Soul Eater, which has a pretty unique art style and a good story, One Piece, because of it's amazing world and characters, and Trigun, for awesome character designs and interesting fights.

Hope that helps! :]

One piece is the best.
Naruto, Hajime no ippo, History of Strongest Disciple Kenichi, Bleach, Katekyo Hitman Reborn, Toriko are what I read weekly. I'm not sure if you like them but you should give a try.

I would second Witch Craft Works, Rosario to Vampire, or Claymore.

I enjoyed Rosario to Vampire as a bit of light reading. Claymore was more serious and, while I felt it dragged in places, I've enjoyed most of what I've read.

Witch Craft Works is one of the few I've read that I have actually had a hard time remembering to have patience while waiting on the next chapter.  Though I couldn't pin down what exactly made it stand out so much for me WCW just peaked my interest more than most others I've read which is admittedly not too many.

Hunter X hunter
Nausicaä ( one of my all time favorite )
Vagabond
Dorohedoro ( well almost all you wanted exept the mechs part)
Angel densetsu ( funny one )

Well there is many other good manga but that is the first five who came out of my mind.

dan148, I don't now if you're still searching but here you go :

If you're looking for a manga with a link like games/reality, I would recommend DREAMLAND. Not for the art but for the originality. I thinks it's worth reading.

I don't have others in mind right now but if I remember one, I'll pm you.

ps : it's my first post but I will make my introduction soon so please be patient.

  I recommend  novel 'GUIN SAGA'  グイン・サーガ
   It's the best novel I think .
        but it's have 2 problem.
      
   1st it's unfinished because of author's death
   
   2nd is language
I'm japanese and I can read English .
   I enjoy scanlation of manga but I can't enjoy scanlation of novel .
   I think scanlated novels are poor.
   Is it ATLAS's problem? or my English skill's ?
   
   This is my first post ,  thank you for reading.
