i would recommend Black Lagoon. the action scenes are awesome. but there's a lot of crude jokes... and they swear a lot, so that's just something to keep in min before you decide to watch it

I think you are looking for something like Meteor Methuselah or Avian Wander.

most of these are probably very well known by most people here but just in case:

REAL: A very compelling drama manga by Takehiko Inoue centered around wheelchair basketball. Convincing characters with touching stories.

Blame!: Sci-fi action manga with next to no dialogue. Extremely captivating.

Mushishi: The most atmospheric manga I've read besides Blame!. It's basically a collection of loosely related short stories about a Ginko, a traveler who helps people having problems with micro-organisms with strange abilities called mushi in a setting that resembles medieval Japan.

One Piece: A simple yet fun story in which the author demonstrates great imagination and attention to detail. Surprisingly touching at times.

Aria: This slice-of-life manga can't be explained in words, it must be experienced.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Alongside Tezuka's Phoenix the most worthy manga being called an epic in my opinion. An action/adventure genre manga about the adventures of members of Joestar family which spans generations.

Phoenix: Tezuka's greatest work. A bit aged at times, but it's definitely worth reading. Sadly it was not finished.

Best way to know is by telling us your favorite genre, but
One Piece is my favorite because it combines hilariousness with some awesome battle scenes
Same for Gintama, it focuses a lot on the comedy, but a couple of the fights aren't bad. There's comedy infused throughout the whole series though
DBZ is a classic
Alive-the final evolution is good for fights but also is pretty dark
The World God only knows is a great Romance/Comedy manga
Read Bakuman for insight into a mangaka's life
Detective Conan for mystery
And Lolita Complex Phoenix is pretty damn funny

Since no one else has mentioned them yet, may I suggest Cat Soup?  There are two animated adaptations, Movie and TV series, based on the original manga, which I am not yet familiar with.  The Movie is more tending towards the "psychedlism" you're looking for, whereas the Series is hard to describe in words.

Like everybody else is saying, it all really depends on what genre you like best.
Personally i lean towards supernatural action manga's with a romantic subplot like Shingetsutan Tsukihime and Elfen Lied.
Other wise i can also recommend eyeshield 21, Beelzebub, fairytail, D.Gray-man, witch hunter, Rave, ect..

Like others said, there are quite a lot of choices. It might help if you tell us what kind of manga you'd like to read, or at least what manga did you enjoy so we may suggest you something similar.
:am: In any case, here is some among my fave list:
  • World Embryo
  • Shin Angyo Onshi
  • To Aru Kagaku no Railgun
  • Hoshi no Samidare (a.k.a. The Lucifer and Biscuit Hammer)
  • Tegami Bachi
  • Otoyomegatari

It really depends on the genre and the type of storyline you enjoy. xD
Can you give an example of what you like to read?

But I'll recommend some that I personally enjoyed:
Mx0
Bloody Monday
Doubt (TONOGAI Yoshiki)

And those are the only ones I can think of at the top of my head.

What genre are you looking for? I just picked up Iris Zero. It's a pretty interesting read so far.

I am trying to get a hold of the 6 th volume of Cavalier of the Abyss and I recommend out to anyone who likes action, romance, fantasy. It does include some violent parts though nowhere near freezing.

some anime, overall or partially, are such surreal and bizarre pieces of 'creativity' that watching them (especially if one understands japanese) is completely 'brain-blowing' (in a positive sense)

under this glorious category i would list Azumanga, Melody of Oblivion, Serial Exp. Lain, Arakawa

any other?

Nononono - from the creator of Elfen Lied. a drama about a girl who must pretend to be a boy in her pursuit of becoming an olympic ski jumper.  introduces ski jumping and makes it interesting, while balancing dramatic, comedic, and romantic elements.

Dance! Subaru - a seinen manga about a troubled teenage girl who is a genius dancer.  despite being a ballet manga, it's really intense and the main character, Subaru, is so hardcore she'd make Frieza cry.

Otoyomegatari - from the creator of Emma.  a slice of life-ish look at the daily lives and customs of a nomadic tribe in central Asia.  gorgeously detailed drawings, relaxing narrative. 

Witches - short stories about witches, more in a fantastical, mysterious wiccan way than the evil, hideous cackling kind.  the art is beautiful, a little loose and experimental.  the stories are thoughtful and quietly, refreshingly moving.  kind of like standing still in the ocean.

I don't really have a realistic manga to recommend but Deadman Wonderland, Hoshi no Samidare, and Princess Lucia are really good reads.
