    Well, going with the standard recommendations for this genre...

    -> AKIRA -- All time classic, one of the greatest series of all times.
    -> Battle Angel Alita + BAA:Last Order -- Masterpiece with one of the best lead characters in the history of Manga.
    -> Practically everything ever written by Nihei Tsutomu, i.e. BLAME, BioMega, NOiSE, Abara, etc. -- You can't spell "Cyberpunk" without "Nihei", even though it might look like you could! xD But you just can't.
    -> EDEN - It's an Endless World -- Endo Hiroki's big hit work, intelligent and deep from beginning till end.
    -> Shirow Masamune's two Cyberpunk hits Appleseed and Ghost in the Shell -- Dense and brilliant, though I'd rather recommend the Anime version for both of those series.

    But just like I said, they're all just kinda the standard must-reads that come to my mind... if Biopunk is also working for you I could offer some more not so well-known ones, like:

    -> Dorohedoro -- Shocking!ly entertaining title written by one of Nihei's former assistants
    -> Ultra Heaven -- One of my favorite series of all times: one hell of a dystopian drug trip.


    Hope there's at least one or two you didn't know yet. x(

    Mardock Scramble is very good too. It's based on a series of novels, which were also adapted into an anime movie, with at least one more movie planned.

    Re: The “looking for” manga thread

    Is there a good series that deals with law and have lawyers in it?
    It has to be logical ofc.

    It'll be good if the cases are actually well written and the mystery is good.
    Might be asking a little too much but I'll give any law or lawyer related series a try.
    I know about defense devil but I don't find myself liking it.

    Re: The “looking for” manga thread

    Defense devil: the actual credibility of the "Law cases" are rather poor, and relies thoroughly on ecchi and stuff. Not that interesting.

    Also I don't think you'll find any interesting ones dealing with that at all, after I took a look at Baka-Updates.

    Although with the idea of justice I think that Kurosagi is an interesting one...

    Re: The “looking for” manga thread

    I'm looking for a short, completed series. Preferably no more than 5 or 6 volumes long. Seinen or Shonen. It can't have been canceled. It has to have had a proper and intended ending. Licensed in English is a bonus. A perfect example of what I am looking for would be Planetes.

    Re: The “looking for” manga thread

    If you're looking for a short seinen Town of Evening Calm, Country of Cherry Blossoms would be good. It's a one volume manga about the bombing of Hiroshima and how it effected the survivors. It is one of the saddest, most beautiful manga ever written in my opinion. And it is licensed in English, one of the many great titles Last Gasp has licensed.

    Don't know many manga about lawyers, personally. Maybe the Phoenix Wright manga I can't think of anything with a court room setting either.

    Yeah, I have read a ton of one shots. I was really looking for stuff that I could buy that wouldn't hurt my wallet too bad.

    Re: The “looking for” manga thread

    Looking for a nice story, mystery, with characters having sad past and such and struggle to 'move' on, don't mind if its shojo, shonen or seinin. Character development, maybe some romance, fantasy (if possible) something either like Gakuen Ouji or Yozakur Quartet ^^

    Rozen maiden gives Jun a tragic past, I guess.

    I can't think of any others right now. but the ending of the first series just pisses me off...

    Re: The “looking for” manga thread

    Hrm, I was thinking, with the sad past stuff, does it have to fully dominate/affect the character deeply?

    I mean, many manga's have characters with dark pasts which become slowly unravelled, but it's not obvious they are trying to escape it. Also, do revenge manga's count?

    it doesnt have to dominate it can be just explanatory or character development ^^ and yes revenge counts, they're some of the coolest plot when revenge is involved ><

    Re: The “looking for” manga thread

    Carp. I was thinking of an anime when I said revenge. It's Gun x Sword, I like it a lot. No idea if there's a manga or whatnot. Gun X Sword is about a guy with a mecha (there exist 7 in the world, i think) out for revenge against a man with a claw; that man killed his wife. Accompanying him is a girl looking for her brother, also abducted by the man with the claw. Yeah.

    There is another good revenge story, Blood Alone. Main Chara's looking for revenge against the vampire which took his sister.

    I know sket Dance has pretty awesome plot development from a gag comedy start; all the characters have pretty dark pasts.

    Those are all the mangas, for now anyways.
