Hi I’m Simon and I’ll give you some recommendations again today, with a dungeon city, a cute but equally brutal fantasy and a not so normal teacher. So lets jump right in.
First off will be Danmachi, or “Is it wrong to pick up girls in a Dungeon?” No seriously that’s the translated name.
As I’ve come across several lightnovel adaptations in the last few weeks, most of which have this kind of fantasy setting, I thought this would be the best out of them all to recommend. Translating the video-game principle of Dungeons into a fantasy world where Adventurers living in the city of Orario make their living by going down into the dungeon beneath the city to scavenge and level up their abilities. That skill boosting is done by their respective god or goddess. In this city lives the rookie adventurer Bell Kranel with his goddess. Fantasy, Action, Romance and Comedy, this is for everyone.
Chapters: 19 (ongoing)
Author/Artist: Oomori Fujino/Kunieda
Second will be Tail Star
What Akama ga Kill does, Tail Star takes even further. Under a cute artstyle waits a brutal, harsh and sad story. Tail Star takes place in a world where the dark queen triumphed over the queen of light and now tries to plunge the world into chaos. Sanagi and Mayu are children of a tribe that’s become the latest victim of the dark queen and now try to take revenge on her.
Chapters: 13 (ongoing)
And last but not least, Great Teacher Onizuka
This old but awesome manga/anime is among my alltime favorites. While the manga is much longer and consequently much more awesome, it is a pain in the ass to read. That is because there’s huge amounts of unnecessary text, making the overall experience, although awesome as it is, pretty tiring.
Nonetheless, watch the anime. It is a great mixture of feelgood, comedy and just general awesomeness. If you then decide on reading the manga, that is awesome, but give the anime a chance, it will definitely not disappoint you.
Author/Artist: Fujisawa Tooru
Chapters: 200 (completed) plus several spin-offs
And with those recommendations I leave you, hopefully you find something among them you will enjoy.
Thank you and have a nice day 😀
