For some reason it seems hard for me to actually get into anime. MOstly because it's hard to find a good series for free. So one day after surfing the boob tube, I decided to try manga, after all I am deeply into art.

So, that's exactly what I did. The first series? Dragon Knights, BUT the problem is: what are some series that are still mature, BUT not mature enough for it to be ecchi or Hentai or whatever. Basically what I'm saying is......what are some appropraite series that aren't too kiddish and aren't too mature? Please help me, because most of the people at my school don't even do manga, they do anime.

Any recommendations will be accepted! Plz, thank you, and bye-bye:)

From your precious Jewl,

Jewl122. :)

@jewl122: Mature as in like decapitations and porn or mature like made for adults?

If you're looking for not-porn Mature subject matter, then look up Naoki Urusawa's work. Specifically, 20th Century Boys and Monster. Those stories are really freaking deep. If you're looking for something a little more historic, then try Blade of the Immortal or Vagabond (there is nudity but it is the "artistic" kind). If you want something more recent, then check out Bloody Monday and Cage of Eden. Kodansha has been releasing English-translated versions of those stateside so you can buy them now.

Naoki Urasawa is a good choice, his work is just awesome...

Original Gundam and Gundam Z sans some minor details are pretty mature, or Gundam Stardust Memory...

Evangelion is algo good...

Mahou Sensei Negima (not exactly what you're loooking for, but pretty good)

Darker Than Black

Battle Royale (It gets a little bit too violent sometimes, but nevertheless is quite good)
