This thread is for more then just Japanese related stuff, since the Chinese and Korean animation, comic and fantasy novel scene has just blown up.
Don't be stuck in a box and miss out on all these great things that's coming from Korea and China just because its different.
Here are a few titles to try so you can make the transition over.
Manga/ Manhwa/ Manhua = Red Storm(Korean), Tales of Demons and Gods(Chinese), One Punch Man(Jap)
Light novels - Tales of Demons and Gods, Invincible, Sovereign of the three realms, The World Online. just to name a few.
Kpop groups are many so here are some to check out - Pentagon(song - Shine), BTS(song - Mic Drop), Twice(song - Dance the night away).
Feel free to add any of your own favourite kpop group, fantasy novel, manga, or anime.
