Tenra Bansho Zero
A game that does not require a GM that has players tell a cooperative stories that often go off the rails. If you are looking for a game to help you learn to think on the fly, this is the way to go.
Tenra Bansho Zero is a Japanese Role Playing Game that focuses on a 3 act structure with a fairly complicated rule set. Great if you want that Manga/Anime feel, but difficult for a beginner. It is also great if you want to experiment with “high drama” as the game is heavily inspired by Samurai Dramas, except it's set in space.
