Okay, this is probably the thirds time I've tried to get a topic like this out here, but the threads keep getting locked up.
Believe it or not, topics like these actually help me to determine the anime and manga I download and buy. I don't intend for people to make top five favorite anime/manga lists, I intend for people to give me some information on the plot and characters of their favorite anime and manga. Yeah, I said favorite. Peoples favorite anime and manga is usually the best, highest rated anime and manga. Garabage anime and manga doesn't tend to best of the best quality. So, if you see the words 'my favorite' don't pee yourself, and try to replace them with 'the best', and for Christ's sake don't freeze this thread.
That said, you must know what this thread is about. I want you, the readers, to give me some info on your favorite (mods, don't forget so quickly) unlisenced anime and manga. That is, anime and manga the can be found on bittorrent. I need to know some things about plots, settings and characters so that surely many people aside from myself can become aware of your favorite () mangas and anime. I'm new to this bittorrent thing, and though I've attained maximum download speed, there are still many series out there that I've not heard of.
SO far, I've seen the first bits of KashiMashi, Suzuka, and Air (keep your pants on, mods--I'm detailing them, too!)
KashiMashi I'm enjoying. (SPOILERS)

The series starts out, and Hazumu is still a guy. He's a femenine guy, but still a guy. But, shortly after being rejected by his love, we see him hiking up this mountain side. And, shortly after that, he's hit by an alien space ship and is turned into a girl! The rest of the series so far has taken us through Hazumu's life as a female, Tomari's life, and Yasuna's life, AND there love for each other. It's a very strange story, but I don't mind. Super cute! Oh, and, maybe you thought the title (KasiMasi ~Girl Meets Girl~) was just decieving you, but it's not. Yep, to the enthrallment of you odd guys out there, there are lesbians. I'm not 100% on Hazumu, yet, but Yasuna and Tomari are definately homosexual, as far as I can tell.
Next is Air. Now, I'm just going to have you watch this anime, because I have no idea what's going on. I'm sure I'll have to rewatch the series to understand it fully, or even at all. But, in spite of my complete lack of understanding, I try to enjoy every episode I watch. There are just thirteen in al, by the way. If anyone wants to give a plot summary for me, feel free! (:
Lastly is Suzuka. (SPOILERS) Suzuka takes us through the life of mainly Yamato. Yamato is a first year highschooler living is Tokyo I believe, with his aunt in her enormous mansion/hotel type of thing. Going through really quickly, he developes a major crush on Asahina Suzuka, the first year highjump star. I say it should be obvious to anyone in that school that Yamato really likes Asahina, and equally as obvious that she likes him, but is trying to cover it up. But, apparently, it's only abvious that Yamato likes Asahina, and everyone is oblivious of Asahina's feelings for Yamato. Anyway, the rest is obvious. The entire sereis is basically a perpetual awkward moment. Anyway, yeah, if you'd like to discuss Suzuka (the show, not just the character) be my guest.
Suzuka is definitely my favorite. And, is it just me, or does the quality of the animation begin to lack during the middle of the series and toward the end?
