A lot of people ask me for suggestions especially for anime and manga. I can't tell them unless I know what type of genre they're into.

Ughhh... you know what I'm useally the type of person that will love anything if I think it's "good". I mean I listen to any kind of music as long as I feel it's "good".

So just tell me your favorites I guess.

How ever Slice of Life type stories seem to be my favorite.

So just tell me your favorites I guess.

Well, if you like SciFi, I would recommend anything from Robert Heinlein ... it's "hard scifi" so there is some attempt to represent real or possible technology an events in the flow of the story. Asimov is another great old school Sci-Fi author ... he has a few series that are very good.

A good graphic novel series I like is Kissing Chaos (kissingchaos.com), by this guy i know Arthur Dela Cruz. His stuff it great, its has a mix of romance, coming of age issues, some violence, and even a possible conspiracy. His art work is great and original i think. He even does custom painting and wall art. I got a custom 5x8 one a while back when i talked to him about his works often, because he messed up an order of mine. I have it framed in case he ever gets big.

As far as sci-fi goes, the last one I read was "Hyperion" by Dan Simmons. It's referred to as "space opera" by some, not hardcore. It's the first in a series of four. I finished the first and am about two-thirds through the second, "Fall of Hyperion." I guess I need to go back and finish it, but I've been so distracted by other things lately, like anime and manga.
