    The manga Princess Ressurection is pretty good if you can get past/enjoy the more simplistic art style. The only other one I don't already see on here is the witchblade anime if your into Seinen.

    Looking for a action packed thriller series, Any suggestions??
    -please no yu-gi-oh, Pokemon, inu yasha,
    Action/thriller? I can't believe no one's mentioned Higurashi yet. Watch it if you want brutally violent action, lolis, schoolgirls with cleavers, serial killings, people of all ages and genders going insane (lolis included) and murdering random people, etc. Best anime thriller I've ever seen, complete with a good, non-linear storyline and very low predictability. Surpasses the mainstream anime by a long way.

    Season 1: Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni (Rena's arc FTW)
    Season 2: Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni Kai
    OVA: Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni Rei (not near as good as the first two, IMO)

    ==

    For something much less dark and/or disturbing, go read History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi. Not really a thriller, but it's got 400+ chapters of martial arts action, way too exaggerated for real life and much more realistic than DBZ. Plot isn't too original, but because of the funny characters, endless fighting, and the pure joy of watching a pathetic loser turn into a hero over the course of hundreds of chapters, it's definitely worth a read. And the thing is, it's not over. They're on 412 right now and still releasing with no signs of an end, although there are some moderate twists (albeit, with predictable results) a little bit after 400.

    The ecchi can get a bit annoying if you don't enjoy it, as there's a ton of it and it gets less and less censored as the story goes on. I didn't mind it. Quick rundown of the content: martial arts, superhuman masters, and boobs.

    Manga;
    Battle Angel Alita
    Blame!
    EDEN
    Dorohedoro
    Appleseed (SO much better than the new crappy CG anime thing...*^*)
    Biomega

    Anime;
    Cowboy Bebop
    Rahxephon
    Generator Gawl
    Macross Plus
    Patlabor
    GITS
    Votoms
    Gunbuster

    And yeah the list is only about Mangas, no western comics =/.
