Manga recommendations for the newbie?

Hi, all.

So, I've always been a fan of graphic novels and comics in general, but I've never gotten into manga, mostly because the stuff I've come across has to do with magical card games or cute little animals beating the crap out of each other, which doesn't appeal to me at all. I'd really like to see what's out there, but I have absolutely no idea where to start-- the genre's bloody massive! O.O I'm open to anything with strong plotting and memorable characters (and striking art is always great), but which hopefully doesn't involve some kind of competition. Any recommendations would be much appreciated!
