Dunno is you checked but there is also Monster that is the best I EVER read, and 20th Century Boys. Both classic by the same mangaka.

I stumbled upon this, might seem interesting. Here is the plot.
Seizon - Life
I'll review it later!
Yes. I'm reading that. By Nobuyuki Fukumoto & Kawaguchi Kaiji. Two great seinen mangaka in my opinion.
You should try "Confessions". Its a 1-volume manga by both of them. Plot
You know those situations when people confess their darkest secrets before dying? Right, a guy in a similar situation confesses to murder. Only to find out that
a) He's not going to die
b) The only guy who heard his confession is his best friend
c) The two of them are isolated in a cabin far away from civilisation
d) Both of them are driven to paranoia.
I also recommend "Spirit of the Sun" by Kawaguchi Kaiji. Plot
Japan gets hit by a series of natural disasters and the government is crippled. In response, China & US began occupying...,"giving foreign aid" to the nation. The story takes place several years after the incident, with a Japanese refugee in Taiwan who lost his memory.
Volume 1 is the prologue might be a bit overwhelming. The real story starts with Volume 2.

This is from Rookies - there're great motto here and there through the story and they gave me such an inspiration, so, I really recommend this one to you.
Most of his stories are heroic-style like (maybe you've heard of his famous Rokudenashi Blues?) but his drawing is very beautifully realistic.
FYI: His recent work is Beshari Gurashi - it's five-volumes manga about the boys who dream to be a professional joke-teller. I haven't read it though, but I saw his realistic drawing improve a lot.
Also the works by Tsukasa Hojo (he was Inoue Takehiko's mentor), his past famous works are City Hunter and Cat's Eyes. The drawing wasn't quite realistic in both stories, it has just started to get awesome in any work after City Hunter.
Hi, I'm looking for a manga similar to Death note. The thing I liked most about it is the mind games and the darkness of the series. So if you know of any manga that is in the same genre I would really appreciate if you would share your knowledge with me.
This is the story of a very smart student called Hirama Ren who is used to always getting the top results in his school, and is the chairman of the student's council. One day, he walks past a group of bullies and asks them to leave--and because of that, they decide to teach him a lesson. They decide to beat up a couple of guys and they reported it to the teachers, blaming him.
Hirama becomes enraged by it and and so he decides to attain some power that could allow him to change the world to a world that he wanted...one without such pathetic people..the people who hides from responsibilities, look for shelter from others when in trouble, etc.
Coincidentally, his vice-chairperson called him and asked if he was fine with her inviting a hypnotist for some event at school to hype up the school population. He thought it might be THE ability that he was looking for, so he agreed to it. During the "trial" test of the hypnotist's ability, he set up some plan and later on used it to test if hypnosis was able to hypnotise people who were avoiding it. With his new found knowledge, how will Hirama use this new power to reshape the world?
too bad it's only one chapter has been scanlated >_<
ah I forgot...
