I'm looking for some manga titles that revolve around a close-nit group of protagonists. Doesn't matter what they do, just as long as it's badass, and keep in mind that I hate sports manga/anime (which is why I specifically avoided the use of the word "team" in the title). I'm looking for something like Red Storm, One Piece, Rainbow nisha, Sun Ken Rock, or Crows. Where there is a number of protagonists who all hang out, fight the same fights, or chase the same goals. I will also accept "organization" type Manga, where there is a large organization at play, such as the hunter association in Hunter x Hunter. To be more specific about what I am interested in: I love Battle Shonens, Seinen, political, war, medieval, ect. Also, be aware that I've already attempted to read Fairy Tale and Naruto (and dropped both) I look forward to your recommendations!
