Redline
Maybe THE anime since XXX years. It took them 7 years, they drew 100.000 frames of beautiful handdrawn animation and used zero CGI in this. This is love, dedication… this is art, folks! It’s about the craziest race in the universe and contains (of course) insanely fast cars, mind-blowing animation and a neat, catchy soundtrack. The story itself is rather “light” – on the other hand you don’t have those pseudo mind-fucks. It’s a plain, simple, and stunning anime, a real feast for the eyes.
No DL-link for this one. It’s all about the art, don’t waste this experience (it really is one) on a crappy copy. Go get the Bluray, you need to enjoy this baby in the highest quality you can get!

I case you still don’t believe me, watch the trailer :)

Boys on the Run (Daniel.au)
v04, ch. 33-36
ch. 37
ch. 38-39

.

I am a Hero
Vol. 09 (Illuminati Manga)
or online, if the link goes down
I am a Hero continues with it’s usual pacing. It may be the un-flashiest zombie-manga, maybe that’s why it is so good.

.

Terra ForMars
ch. 01-04 (Utopia Scanlations)
Soldiers with special abilities are sent to Mars to exterminate a certain alien race, so that human settlers can colonize the planet. The first 4 chapters were a fun read, let’s see where this manga gets.

.

Oniwakamaru the Visitor (Illuminati Manga)
ch. 01-03
Complete in 4 volumes, by the mangaka who also draws Tough, Riki-Oh. That means heros and violence.

.

Holyland (Illuminati Manga) (end)
wherever you left off

.

Inherit the Stars (Illuminati Manga)
ch. 01-03
Written by James P. Hogan, drawn by Yukinobu Hoshino (the mangaka behind “2001 Nights”). In the near future, on the moon, a human corpse in a spacesuit is discovered – but it turns out to be 50.000 years old. Personally though, this work is far behind his others.

.

Steel Ball Run (JoJo-Project) (end)
vol. 22
vol. 23 & 24 (end)

.

JoJolion (Hi Wa Mata Noboru)
ch. 11 (contains spoilers for the end of SBR)

.

Odyssey (Illuminati Manga)
ch. 01
Like the manga Sanctuary, this one should be a real old school seinen, with agendas colliding and a thought-provocing story.

.

Otoyomegatari (Duralumin)
ch. 22
ch. 23
side story
ch. 24

.

Sun Ken Rock – Side Stories (XScans, Japanzai)
Gaiden – Yumin
Gaiden – Pickaxe
If you don’t know Sun Ken Rock, check it out. It’s a great gang-fight manga with some of the most awesome artwork and badass-moments you’ve ever seen. Thoose are side-stories to the series, they won’t spoil you the main story.

.

Vinland Saga ch. 83 (Hox, Happy Scans!)

    Thanks for your comments!
    @Lucas: I just like the language… and we needed a title ;-)
    Btw, Hox wrote in his blog that a new Hoshinobu translation is underway.

    As for buying Redline to watch it… I’d advise not to. The very beginning of the movie is great and its actually about, you know, a race… as the film goes on it becomes a mecha / Akira blob / acid trip spectacle with a forced romance angle tacked on for good measure. Nothing makes any sense in the end unless “a wizard did it” is a good explanation.

    The first 15 min were great though.

    @bob: Well I never said Redline was clever or innovative. It’s purpose is simply to entertain, and this it does perfectly. I for one count the art in on that, as this hand drawn and detailed style of Koike (be it race or romance) is dimensions away from other generic anime or even CGI-crap (imo). :)

    @Moncef: Depends. You can go to mangatraders.com (you have to register but it’s free). I don’t know which version they have, though. Personally I like the version translated by Illumnia manga more. So you can also go to their page and DL everything via IRC. Which sounds complicated if you’re unfamiliar with it but it’s actually pretty easy and fast.

    You should check out “Btooom!”. It’s like Battle Royale with explosives. Great stuff.
