My avatar? Uh...it's from a manga series called Vassalord. I don't know if I'd recommend it unless you like stories heavy in josei themes...I would recommend the artist's other work, Peacemaker Kurogane, though!
Have you got any other anime or manga you could suggest? I've gotten into both pretty recently, I'm watching Durarara and Elfin Lied as well as reading that new manga Iron Knight as it comes out. I'm not so good with manga, it just gets confusing a lot between panels. (Yeah I know how to read it properly but still.)
