I'm reading the Dark Horse Ghost in the Shell manga. It's very cool. Most of the episodes are the basis for the various GitS movies that have come out so that was pretty interesting.

I'm a huge Heinlein fan (if there are any others out there).

I'm a big manga fan and I've read quite a lot but currently I haven't had much time to read much at all.

I love all of Mizuki Kawashita's manga especially Ichigo 100% which is my favorite all time.

Yep, Ichigo 100% is fantastic, if you're into drama/romance, comedy, some ecchi and harem types.

I've also started reading Air as well as watching it.

Strawberry 100% (いちご100%, Ichigo 100%) by Mizuki Kawashita

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ichigo_100%25

Ichigo 100% chronicles the life of Junpei Manaka, a high school student and aspiring movie director, and his relationships with the girls that enter his life.

This manga has 167 chapters so it's a bit of a read. I use Onemanga.com, it has the full story. Very useful site.

Apollo's Song by Osamu Tezuka.

I loved it! But it has more negative feelings then good, with some violence and blood. It's about a character named Shogo who is a psychiatric pateient with a mental problem which developed from his mother who always would be with different guys, and he was sort of the "mistake child" Which confused him as well and he developed a hatred for any kind of affection among animals or people.

It basically is trying to answer "What is love? Why do we love? What purpose does it hold?"

If your a Shinkai fan I would look out for this one. Wink


I also got

Neil Gaiman's Sandman.

Which is about "the lord of dreams" I have only read first issue so I don't know much yet! But I love it all the same.
