I have added some additional items to the recommended title pages.
For live action:- Aragami: The Raging God of Battle
- Seven Samurai
- Shiranami Gonin Otoko
Several works by Kikuchi Hideyuki:
- Demon City Shinjuku: The Complete Edition
- Vampire Hunter D
- Wicked City
- Wind Named Amnesia / Invader Summer
- Yashakiden: The Demon Princess
and by Uchida Yasuo:
- The Togakushi Legend Murders
These titles range from sophisticated to pulp. The good stuff is found both in the high and low.
