Please excuse any entries without a comment or with an incomplete comment. Anything without a comment has been recently finished and I simply haven't had a chance to update it. Something with an incomplete comment is a title that had been under the "Seen Some" category, then got moved over when completed... then never updated. I try to fix these as I find them, but they're much harder to spot since there is actually text in the box.

Elfen Lied (manga) Excellent
It's been too long since I've seen the anime adaptation that I can't really figure out how faithful the anime was to the manga. However, I can say with certainty that this story is dark, intense, and makes me cry regardless of medium. While the amount of violence and nudity (especially the nudity) is excessive, it never really comes across as a crutch. It's not violence and nudity in lieu of story. And that makes Elfen Lied's narrative worth consuming. Doesn't mean that it's a story for everyone...
Fullmetal Alchemist (manga) Excellent
Only the Ring Finger Knows (manga)
