    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! :)

    Arpeggio of Blue Steel! Definitely a fun manga about a group of friends fighting off an alien invasion of anthropomorphic naval vessels in their old U-boot which itself is also an anthropomorphic alien.

    There's also Gundam Thunderbolt which takes the "squad" part quite literally. Detailing the events of two military squadrons. A squad of mech pilots fighting for the earth aliance and a squad of amputee soldier figting fro the principality of Zeon. Awesome series. Highly recommended.

    Alright, a different request, but very similar to this one...

    A manga where the MC is a leader of a group and/or Royalty. Such as Arslan Senki, Berserk, Seven Deadly Sins, Redstorm.

    Not necessarilly entirely confirm all the criteria but if you want something like Berserk there is literally nothing else that's like it except Vinland Saga! Which does feature an MC who's sort of royalty.
