Pluto is a manga based on the Astro Boy universe, except the characters have been revamped and the mood very gritty and serious. The main character is a robo cop named Gesicht who it's investigating a series of murders, apparently committed by a robot, which causes a huge controversy, since robots are specifically programmed to never harm humans.
I think you might be able to help me track something down. This sounds akin to the first manga I read when I was about 9 years old, I remember it was an Astro Boy comic that my dad picked for me from the library because I liked the CGI movie. I think it was an anthology of unrelated Astro Boy stories, the one that sticks out the most is where he's not a robot and he gets entangled in this case of an alleyway murder, or it may have been him who gets shot in the alleyway, something like that. There was another one where he was fighting an enemy who had a rocket in space. I'd really appreciate if you could figure this one out for me, I have tried and not succeeded in finding out about this particular manga, and though Pluto sounds sort of similar in tone, I dont think it was Pluto.

I started reading Asper girl recently and I was really impressed. It's such a painful story, but for people who have fallen that low, what keeps them there is the fact that dragging yourself out of the depths really does hurt that much, and as dreary as daily life is, staying there is easier than what it would take to transcend it.

My manga recommendation is Tsuki ga Michibiku Isekai, which I think I mentioned in another thread. A polish friend of mine recommended it to me and I started out skeptical because the beginning is really generic, but I got so invested that I stayed up until 5 in the morning reading it, I couldn't put it down. The plot is that, typical of isekai, a teenage boy gets sent to a western fantasy world in the process of being overrun by a demon lord. But it spirals into an absolutely fascinating intrigue plot where nothing is as it seems and every question raised is answered with a revelation so explosive it blew my mind and raised a dozen more questions.

Asper Girl is just something else in its own way. The autistic girl isn't some extremely smart, really attractive quiry girl with a poker face, and mc has social anxiety and doesn't ruin his life just to help her. Nothing is dipped in sugar soo everything sucks to a degree but they make it work, 2 people having a healthy relationship as well as the circumstances allow.
