    You read the title , list any manga or anime you recommend people to read/watch.

    Fortress of the Apocalypse ( Apocalypse no Toride ) :
    Well I never actually read any good zombie manga due to how shitty the storytelling of zombies are in japan .

    But after reading this manga I wondered why no one came up with this , it's quite different than other zombie stories due to how the zombies act and think , they have super speed and super strength , and yes they can climb walls.
    Oh and there's also that:
    apocalypse-no-toride-3432421.
    yep that's a zombie tower , never thought you might see it eh.

    But the way they handle the characters is quite interesting since they all have their dark pasts ( well except for one but I'm not gonna say who ) , and each one has his own profession and style to get the job done.

    Wanna see this manga's version of zombie dog?
    well here it is:
    zombie dogs.

    Lone Wolf and Cub, then the other 2 mangas made by the duo Kazuo Koike/Goseki Kojima (Samurai Executioner and Path of the Assassin).
    If you're going the realistic, gritty path of gekiga: Yoshihiro Tatsumi, Hiroshi Hirata are first choices.
    Kazuo Koike has some jewels of his own as well: Lady Snowblood, Golgo 13, Crying Freeman.
    For yakuza/mafia/gang themed ones, Buronson is your man. Recommended ones: Sanctuary, Heat, Strain.
    Horror/Psychological: I am a Hero, Narutaru, Bokurano, 20th Century Boys, Neighbor No. 13, anything by Kazuo Umezu, Hideshi Hino, Maruo Suehiro.
    Sci-fi/Futuristic: Eden: It's an Endless World, anything by Tsutomu Nihei, Yukinobu Hoshino.
    Surrealistic/WTFamIreading: Anything by Shintaro Kago, Nishioka Kyoudai, Jiro Matsumoto, Yoshiharu Tsuge (here's another link for more of him).

    Other mangakas worth checking (various genres): Tsutomu Takahashi, Usamaru Furuya, Jiro Taniguchi, Kenji Tsuruta.

    Fruity and eccentric as fuck, but the horror elements are fucking amazing. I heard Jojolion is pretty good.

    Avoid the animes like the ones from the 90s-early 00s. They suck.

    I'd recommend Death Note, but most people seem to have seen/heard of it. It's pretty old, after all. However, these two scenes alone make it the greatest anime ever made, IMO:

    It's the most fabulous horror comic produced in Japan, and it's not as retarded as most of Go Na Gai's comics (Devilman Lady will blow up a weeabo's mind because it's that trashy).

    What, the second one? Matt is in the show for, like, two minutes. No one cares about him, except rapid, brain-dead fangirls who find him hot. (BTW, Matt is fucking hot. <3)

    Stumbled across Saint Young Men and started reading it.

    Basically, Jesus and Buddha as roommates.

    I rather like what I've seen so far.
