"Haikyu!!" is a story centered on high school volleyball. This is a story that focuses on the two main characters, Shoyo Hinata, a hero who is extremely athletic but also small as a volleyball player, and the genius setter Tobio Kageyama, and is a relatively calm comic with no crazy super tricks.
The content of the story is interesting, so it can be enjoyed not only by those who like volleyball but also by those who have never been interested in volleyball.

One Punch Man

Saitama, an unemployed youth who was stuck with his job search, fights with Crablante to save Split-Chinned Kid, and realizes in the process that his dream as a child was never to be an office worker, but instead to be a hero who defeats all villains with one strike. After this victory against Crablante, Saitama intensely trains for 3 years, and succeeds in becoming the superhero that defeats all villains with one punch, but he was still not fully satisfied for some reason. He became too strong that he became numb to everything - the fear of fighting his opponents, joy, nervousness, anger, etc. What will come of the future of Saitama, the hero who is a hero out of pure hobby?!

Rurouni Kenshin

Himura Kenshin - a legendary swordsman who was feared as the "man-slicing swordsman" at the end of the Edo period. After the Meiji Restoration, he swore "not to kill" and traveled around the country as a wanderer. Through his encounter with Kaoru Kamiya and battles with his various nemesis who survived the same turbulent times, this comic seeks the answer through the atonement of one's sin, as well as a way of live in a new era.
This work is popular among children simply because it is a battle manga, but once you re-read it as an adult, you will appreciate its slightly difficult yet deep theme of atonement, making it a recommended work for both men and women, young and old.
