Well, you could always do something crazy like buying the English release of the series since it's licenesed now. The third double length volume comes out Feb 13 and since the first volume has 17 chapters, it should just about catch you up and maybe even get to some new chapters if you got the first three books. Just a crazy little suggestion.

that doesn't come out for another month so for the time being i'm going to complain about the lack of translators on this project

My golden six ;p (nothing more read ehh ;p )

1. I's (the best manga ever for me, due to normal style japanese life and great art of Katsura-senpai)
2. Naruto (I didn;t suppose it's so great until i read it on summer)
3. DeathNote (It's superb addictive to read IT ALL ^^)
4. Bleach (I think that it has better art than Naruto now, but It's lower than Naruto, becaue it lacks something.. You know, it has MULTUUUM characters, and some of them will be having only one battle probably, and some of them none.. Looking at 250 chapters of Naruto you see large differnce in characters fighting via in Naruto and in Bleach)
5. Dragonball (classic)
6. Dr.Slump (omg one of the funniest series i ever read xD)

I made my list 9 months ago, and in the mean time i read a lot of mangas so here is my new list:(i talk a little about each manga, because i think that no one in this forum cares about the others preferences, so i talk a little like a recomendation)
1º - Berserk(My favorite manga, i´m damn sure that until i die a manga better than Berserk won´t be created, it´s just great)
2º - One Piece(Maybe the greatest manga i ever read, it only stays second in my list because of Berserk; One Piece is the manga for everyone: old, young, girl, guy, etc. Everyone who reads One Piece enjoys, it have an unique art and the main characters are the best ever, the 8 strawhats have great personalities, all of them can be fun and serious; not to mention that Oda Sensei is in my opinion the best mangaka of the current days)
3º - Eyeshield 21(Even if you don´t like American Football you will love this manga, after One Piece ES21 has the most unique characters, i have read more than 200 mangas and i never had found a character like the "Commander from Hell" Hiruma, and the art is so great the showdown´s of the Devil Bats against Shin and Agon are better than any fight in a shounen manga)
4º - Hajime no Ippo(I´m a great fan of martial arts, so there is no chance in hell that i would miss this, it´s true that i don´t like main character, but the supportive characters and the rivals are the best ever, it´s great to see Takamura bulling Aoki all the time, the fighting art is the best, and the battle of the Hawks was the greatest fight i ever read in a manga)
5º - Slam Dunk(I´m not a fan of basket, but i can´t help to like this manga; Sakuragi is the most funny character i ever seen, is rivalry with Rukawa and the Sakuragi Gang are so fuuny, not to mention the great art of Inoue Sensei)
6º - GTO(GTO together with Shounan Ju´nai Gumi and Bad Company make a great triology of the life of Eikichi Onizuka the pervert teacher who is a human weapon, if there were a teacher like him, the school would be the greatest place in the world)
7º - Change Guy(It´s about a strong guy who changes body´s with a weak guy, and now the weak guy needs to learn how to fight to survive against his enemys and the strong guy needs to learn how to fight with a weak body, this is a story focused only on fights, there is no great plot development outside the fights, but the fights are great, if you like action you can´t loose this)
8º - Hokuto no Ken(A great manga from the 80´s, the art looks like Jojo´s Bizarre Adventure, but the moves of the characters are better, it´s an appocaliptical world where a man named Kenshiro(Bruce Lee reincarnation, lololol) blow the head´s of the vilains who preack on the weak, with is deadly martial art - Hokuto Shinken)
9º - Gantz(Amazing plot, of the level of Berserk, and the computer Scenarios and characters are great)
10º - Kateikyoushi Hitman Reborn(a very fuuny shonen manga about mafia, a very useless and weak guy discovers that he is the heir of the most important mafia family from Italy, now he will gather his family(most of them are classmates and sempais from school) and will fight against all kind of enemies)
11º - Worst(this manga his about a 15 year old kid that lived in the country all his life, now he comes to Tokyo and become the strongest freshmen from his school which is famous for his strong fighters, lots of fighting and fuuny characters in this manga)
12º&13º - Naruto&Bleach(Well i don´t need to talk about this two, everyone nows them, but they aren´t in my top ten because the late arcs of both of them suck comparing to the firsts, in the beggining i coulnd´t wait to read new chapters, now it´s just a routine, in the present day they can´t even tie the shoes of One Piece)
14º - Vagabond(Another great hit, with the amazing art of Inou Sensei, and the plot of Myamoto Musashi, the most famous japanese samurai, who lives for the way of the sword makes one of the greatest mangas ever)
15º - Claymore(The world of this manga lookes a lot like the one of Berserk, it´s about woman´s half human/half demon who fight against demons)
16º - Samurai Deeper Kyo(Great art and great plot, i don´t understand why this manga is not high rated, and on top of that it´s the manga of Onimeno Kyo)
17º - Prince of Tennis(It´s a great sports manga, read it even if you don´t like tennis, it´s not at the same level as Eyeshield 21, Slum Dunk and Hajime no Ippo, but it´s a great reading in the same way)
18º - Genshiken(A story of a club full of otakus, if you are a great fan of anime and manga, you can´t loose this manga)
19º - UnbalanceXUnbalance(A Korean manhwa, it as a great art, and a love stroy about a teacher and her student, it´s great this unique plot without all those cliché we usually see in this type of manga)
20º - Ultra Red(Another manga of fighting, the same as Hajime no Ippo, great fights and lots of laughs with great art)

- Other great mangas i need to talk about are Suzuka, Rurouni Kenshin, Shijou Saikyou no Deshi Kenichi, Battel Royal and Great Sword of Wah.

April 12, 2008, 02:27 PM
I'm not sure how, but my tastes have changed so much recently, so here i go.... again.

1. Double Arts
because honestly, no new series has instantly clicked as well as this one has since i first read shaman king years back.
2. Sket Dance
Funnier than anything else really, even if it's one proper arc was somewhat lacking.
3. Shiki
It's hard to explain this one. for a monthly to command constant attention like this manages is a rare feat.
4. Matsuri Special
Also something that can easily be described as one of the best Jump SQ series about, even if the story throws the occasional curve ball at ya.
5. Hatsukoi Limited
It can be horribly pervy at times, and i hate it for that, but this series is a great heartstring-puller, something that leads me well into......
6. Hot Gimmick
If you can read all 12 volumes of this without feeling anything you are an emotionless monster. simple as.
7. One Piece
Really recovered since Camies introduction, and has risen to a special place in my heart.
8. Beauty Pop
Haircutting comedy shojo..... I love it so much for no real reason.
9. Nana
Nana manages to never really lose pace or excellence at all down the line, and that's something not many series can manage.
10. Beck
As up to date as i've possibly read I haven't once stopped enjoying it. and for 90 60 page chapters thats really something
11. Doraemon
Yeah, I've only just started reading this, and it's never stopped being fun :D a true classic
12. Beet the Vandel Buster
With no word on when the artist will be able to start drawing again, I can't help but reread this over and over, hoping it'll reappear in Jump SQ before 2 years of absence in october.
13. Fairy Tail
People can spout about it being like one piece or bleach or whatnot, it still kicks so much arse!
14. Zetman
There are few better artists than Katsura
15. I"S
And I mean that
16. Gintama
Kinda lagging out of it now, but it's still hilarious
17. Katekyo hitman reborn!
Still entertaining where it's at now, even when i was starting to get skeptical of it
18. Bleach
Fucks up occasionally, but is still one of the best mangas about
19. Eyeshield 21
Matches drag on a bit now, but by god is ES21 an amazing manga
20. Gantz/Hunter x hunter
at current release rates i'm getting bored with them both, but i love them equally

1. Rurouni Kenshin - Manga that got me interested in manga/anime
2. Bleach - I don't know why I like it more than I should
3. Tales of Destiny: Hakanakikoku no Leon - I love the art and it's centered on one of my favorite video game characters. XD
3. Tales of Symphonia - Love the art style, it's pure video game fanservice bliss for me
4. Buso Renkin
5. Le Chevalier d'Eon - It's a Hellsing-esque version of one of my favorite anime
6. Tales of Innocence - Not so crazy about the art, but I still love the characters and story
7. Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles
8. Tales of Eternia - Nice art and a good adaption
9. Tales of Destiny - The art's pretty good, and it follows the game pretty well
10. Tales of Legendia
11. Vampire Knight - Only shoujou manga I currently follow says much about it
12. Prince of Tennis - Never expected to like it...I was wrong.
13. Tales of the Abyss - Dislike the portrayal of the females, kinda tired of the game it's based on too
14. Katekyo Hitman Reborn
15. Fullmetal Alchemist - I like it sometimes...and sometimes I don't.
16. Enbalming: Tale of another Frankenstein - I'm a Nobuhiro Watsuki fan, if you can't tell.
17. X-1999
18. xxxHolic - It can feel pretty boring at times...
19. D. Gray-man - I'm having a falling-out with the direction the series is going in, but I still follow it if only for the characters.
20. Naruto - It's been boring me for the past 100 some chapters for some reason...but I give it credit since I haven't dropped it yet

I hope it's okay that I'm more partial to manga I work on. XD

Ya know just 'cause i'm indecisive and constantly expand my favourites I'll take another crack at this (read as 'take about a fiftieth crack at this')

1. Ode to Kirihito - Osamu Tezuka
Bugger me, bought this a while back, and it really is one of the deepest most thrilling manga about. A Tezuka masterpiece for sure!
2. Shiki - Ryu Fujisaki
Still thrilling a fair bit into it's run in SQ, and is a brilliant adaptation of it's source material by any means. Not to mention Fujisaki's art!
3. One Piece - Eiichiro Oda
If you haven't fallen so deeply in love with this series (especially with recent events) then you truly are a monster. On a weird trend of introducing nice girl characters too! Not that that matters, just an interesting trend.
4. Pyuu to Fuku! Jaguar - Usuta Kyosuke
There is no funnier gag manga series at present. Solid gold fact!
5. Sket Dance - Shinohara Kenta
But if there was it'd be this slice-of-life-and-then-some series!
6. Hot Gimmick - Miki Aihara
Emotional pain encapsulated in the most heart wrenching series EVER without a doubt.
7. Doraemon - Fujiko Fujio
Well it's doraemon, legendary and fun!
8. Space Adventure Cobra[/] - Buichi Terasawa
Still occasionally going now, it sure knows how to carry it's tone to a level of perfection, and there's something so admirable in how Cobra is (the character).
9. Matsuri Special - Yoko Kamio
A modern classic in SQ in my opinion, never failing to enthrall me!
10. Beet the Vandel Buster - Riku Sanjo & Koji Inada
With Inada still out of commision two years into it's painful hiatus, I can't help but look back and love every second of this classic shonen series.
11. I"S - Masakazu Katsura[/]
Shonen Romance done to a level of excellence.
12. [b]Hatsukoi Limited - Mizuki Kawashita
See above really, on a smaller scale.
13. Eyeshield 21 - Yusuke Murata and Riichiro Inagaki
On the way out, and i swear to god it's letting us all know in style!
14. Zetman - Masakazu Katsura
My favourite Seinen, simply because it's just so absolutely enjoyable.
15.[i] THREE WAY TIE!
Kinnikuman, Kinnikuman Nisei, Kinnikuman Nisei Ultimate Chojin Tag - Yudetamago
Go on, YOU tell me which is better. All are classic in their own rights (heck one still isn't even done!)


............ Ya know what? for now that'll do. It all becomes too conflicted from there on in i'm sure

My top 20 (so far):

1. Flame of Recca by Anzai Nobuyuki [Shounen, 33 volumes complete]
- All time favorite. Wicked fights, lots of comedy, gorgeous art by the last third of the series.

2. Fruits Basket by Takaya Natsuki [Shoujo, 23 volumes complete]
- Only Shoujo I like...actually I love this series! Best character development! A LOT darker than the anime would lead you to believe, thank goodness.

3. Fullmetal Alchemist by Arakawa Hiromu [Shounen, 88 chapters, ongoing monthly]
- Awesome story and great characters. I wish it wasn't published monthly, however... The anime completely deviated from the manga storyline after the introduction of Greed.

4. History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi by Matsuena Syun [Shounen, ongoing, 255 chapters translated so far]
- I love this series so much. It has great martial arts battles, and is also freaking hilarious! I also love the anime (covers up to ch143), so I truly hope they continue it, because what happens in the manga afterwards is epic.

5. 666 Satan by Kishimoto Seishi (twin brother of Naruto's mangaka) [Shounen, 19 volumes complete]
- I read this series in one shot, without a break...it was that good. I loved the story, the characters, and the epic battles between the Angels, Demons, and O.P.T.s (O-Part Technicians). I really really hope this gets made into an anime.

6. Bleach by Kubo Tite [Shounen, 332 chapters, ongoing weekly]
- Great cast of characters, good story, awesome fights, very detailed world.

7. Yu Yu Hakusho by Togashi Yoshihiro [Shounen, 19 volumes complete]
- Great plot, tons of great fights, and my all-time favorite character, Urameshi Yusuke. It was made into my favorite anime of all time.

8. Rurouni Kenshin by Watsuki Nobuhiro [Shounen, 28 volumes complete]
- Awesome fights, gorgeous art, compelling and emotional story, and a kickass main character.

9. Hunter x Hunter by Togashi Yoshihiro [Shounen, 285 chapters, ongoing weekly]
- Very interesting story idea, great action, and awesome Nen ability system. Very spotty releases though, mangaka is sick.

10. Ranma 1/2 by Takahashi Rumiko [Shounen, Comedy, 38 volumes complete]
- Funniest series....ever.

11. Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle by CLAMP [Shounen, 203 chapters, ongoing weekly]
- Great story, wicked plot twists, and gorgeous art.

12. Tenjho Tenge by Oh! Great [Seinen, 118 chapters, ongoing monthly]
- Great fights, gorgeous art, and really cool power/ki system.

13. InuYasha by Takahashi Rumiko [Shounen, 56 volumes complete]
- Great story, great action, and a little shoujo thrown in for good measure.

14. Naruto by Kishimoto Masashi [Shounen, 423 chapters, ongoing weekly]
- Great characters, awesome story, great fights.

15. Death Note by writer Ohba Tsugumi and illustrator Obata Takeshi [Shounen, 13 volumes complete]
- Kept me riveted with the cat and mouse mind games.

16. Dragon Ball by Toriyama Akira [Shounen, 42 volumes complete]
- Best classic fighting series! It's over 9000!

17. Claymore by Yagi Norihiro [Shounen, 85 chapters, ongoing monthly]
- Great idea, cool characters, wicked fights.

18. MÄR by Anzai Nobuyuki [Shounen, 15 volumes complete]
- Don't let the anime fool you! This is a wicked fighting series, with gorgeous art.

19. Hikaru no Go by writer Hotta Yumi and illustrator Obata Takeshi [Shounen, 23 volumes complete]
- I'm not sure why I like this series so much.... I just do.

20. Gravitation by Murakami Maki [Shounen-ai, Comedy, 12 volumes complete]
- Funny as hell, no matter how many times I read it. Be warned, the manga has a LOT more Shuichi x Yuki action than the anime!


Can you tell I like Shounen? Yeesh, I read a lot...

October 02, 2008, 02:38 PM
Since i recently hit the 300 manga mark, i will redoo my top 20 manga list with a few changes:

1st. Berserk - by Miura Kentaro(Seinen)
Like i said before Berserk is the perfect story, the greatest drawings i have ever seen in a manga, amazing story with tons of shocking plot twists, and what makes Berserk the greatest is the emotinal bagage, it´s amazing, sometimes i have to stop reading, get up from my chair and walk aroud my room a litle, this is a manga that never has a happy ending, but it´s not rushed or anything, everything is made with amazing mastery.

2nd. One Piece - by Eichiiro Oda(Shonen)
I have read tons and tons of shonen manga, and what hooked me on One Piece was the fact that it´s diferent from all the other repetitive shonen manga, and it´s impossible that you don´t choose one of the 9 straw hats as at least one of your top 5 manga characters.

3rd. Hajime no Ippo - by Jyoji Morikawa(Shonen)
Tons of great action, comedy and drama, everytime we see Takamura we laugh, the most comic character i have ever seen, and the Battle of the Hawks and Sendo vs Ippo II are the greatest batles ever.

4th. Eyeshield 21 - by Riichiro Inagaki and Yusuke Murata(Shonen)
This is the manga of the most unique character, Hiruma Youichi, he is not the main character, but he is the one that make this manga such a hit in a time when sport mangas are not seen with good eyes in Japan. This is also the manga of my all time favorite character Shin Seijuurou.

5th. Slam Dunk - by Takehiko Inoue(Shonen)
I hate basket, but this manga is amazing, just like ES21 and Hajime no Ippo, it have great drama, comedy and characters, and of course the great Sakuragi Hanamichi.

6th. Change Guy - by Son Eun-ho and Choi Myung-su(Shonen)
This is a Korean manhwa, about a strong guy(Kang Too-Jee) who acidentaly switches body´s with a weakling named Woo So-Choi, now they both have to learn to live with their new bodies. This is a story mostly about fighting and evolution, a great reading for action fans.

7th. Great Teacher Onizuka - by Tohru Fujisawa(Shonen)
I love this story, it´s true that there are tons of mangas about teachers who will change the way of life of their students(like Rookies or Gokusen), but none has the greatness of GTO, and the one thing that makes GTO such a hit is Eiikichi Onizuka, the gorila like deliquent who wants to be a teacher lolol.

8th. Worst - by Hiroshi Takahashi(Shonen)
This is the sequel of Crows, a new year begins and Suzuran have new faces, so new rivaleries and batles are about to happen in the school of Crows, Suzuran High.

9th. Crows - by Hiroshi Takahashi(Shonen)
This is the prequel of Worst, and the first story about the school of Crows, Suzuran Hign, Bouya Harumichi just transfered to Suzuran as a Sophmore, and he takes the school by rampage when he becomes enemy of Hideto Bando. As well as Worst, this manga has tons of funny and serious moments, and i love deliquent stories lolol.

10th. Shounan Jou´nai Gumi - by Tohru Fujisawa(Shonen)
Another deliquent manga, this time featuring the hero of GTO Eiikichi Onizuka and his best friend Dama Ryuji, they are the OniBaku and together with their comic but reliable OniBaku Gumi they are about to take out all the oposing deliquents and...loose their verginity´s lolol.

11th. Gantz - by Hiroya Oku(Seinen)
An adult manga full of gore and sx scenes, about a bunch o guys who died but sudenly ressurected to fight agains aliens in special suits with amazing guns, they nedd to kill enough aliens in order to gain the freedom from the one who resurected them.

12th. Naruto - by Masashi Kishimoto(Shonen)
A good shonen, with ok main characters, but with greaty secondary characters(Neji, Lee, Gaara, Shikamaru, etc)

13th. Bleach - by Kubo Tite(Shonen)
This is a very clichê like shonen action manga, but i don´t know why but i´m really hooked to it.

14th. Unbalance x Unbalance - by Soo-Hyon Lee and Dall-Young Lim(Shonen)
Another Korean manhwa, about a student who falls in love with his teacher, it´s the greatest Shonen romance, it doesn´t have the clichê we usually see in titles like: Love Hina, Ichigo 100%, I´´s or Suzuka.

15th. Hokuto no Ken - by Buronson and Tetsuo Hara(Shonen or Seinen)
This is a manga about a man named Kenshiro, heir of the legendary assassin martial art Hokuto Shinken, that in a post-appocaliptical world will make justice with his own hands, punishing all the villains(Omae wa mou Shindeiru!!)

16th. Katakyou Hitman Reborn by Akira Amano(Shonen)
I really love it, italian mafia in Japan may sound cheesy, but not at all after you read this manga, Tsuna together with his 6 guardians and Reborn take out all the cheesy feeling you get from any review of this manga.

17th. Holyland - by Mori Kouji(Seinen)
The story of a guy who is bullied everyday on school, he thinks he lost his place in society, but after starting training boxing to be able to sleep well, he becomes stronger and acidentaly gets in a fight with some street tugs, now he has to retrieve his place in society. This manga is a seinen, so it doesn´t have the cheesy situations we usually see in this kind of story(Hajime no Ippo, HSD Kenichi, etc), it´s a very deep story.

18th. Vagabond - by Takehiko Inoue(Seinen)
This is the manga version of the story of the legendary japanese samurai Myamoto Musashi, a man who lived by the way of the sword, i love this kind of stories.

19th. Bakuman - by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata(Shonen)
I can´t explain why, but this manga with just 7 chapters has hooked me, never since Berserk a manga gave me this feeling, i think that this is gonna be a huge huge manga in the future.

20th. Claymore - by Norihiro Yagi(Seinen)
Claymore is like the litle sister of Berserk, a really good story that takes place in the medieval time´s(just like Berserk), if you like Berserk, then Claymore is the kind of title that you want to follow.

It's been almost two years since I posted my top 5 (http://mangahelpers.com/forums/showthread.php?p=218825#post218825), so I guess this time I can do a top... 6.

1. Fruits Basket (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fruits_Basket) (10/10 - art is okay at first, gets better later. The story made me both laugh and cry though. It's like the most heartwarming manga in the whole unverse.)
2. Berserk (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Berserk_(manga)) (10/10 - great art, great characters, epic story, what else does one need?)
3. Vinland Saga (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vinland_Saga_(manga)) (9.5/10 - art is of the kind of quality that you rarely see in manga, it's both very detailed and very clean. Characters are great, especially Askeladd, who really carries the show. Story has some faults, but still is better than most.)
4. Historie (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Historie) (9/10 - The art is not the best out there and action scenes look really static, but the story is absolutely awesome)
5. GANTZ (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GANTZ) (Phase 1 only) (8.5/10 - haven't seen anything with better action scenes, and Kurono's character development is just too awesome to describe)
6. Fullmetal Alchemist (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fullmetal_Alchemist) (8/10 - hey, a shounen with an actually good story! I would have liked some more fighting though.)

Everything else I read doesn't really deserve being put into something that has word "top" in it. Though Dragon Ball gets a honorary mention since I'm actually buying it, and not just downloading and reading on my computer.

November 20, 2008, 06:13 PM
Well, I don't really have one favorite but LOTS of favorites:

1. Blame! - Love the old artwork

2. Berserk - Seeing Gutts grow and change over time is awesome

3. Blade of the Immortal - Just where did that old hag get those worms?

4. Rurouni Kenshin - Great for the feel good moments as well as keeping the plot going with action

5. Vagabond - Have to read if for nothing else than watching him slaughter all of 70 of the Yoshioka

6. Ubel Blatt - Everybody likes some Ecchi every now and then!

7. Gantz - Action, Tits, Gore, Guns, Aliens

8. Monster - Great mindgame manga before the author made 20cb

9. Eden - I can't put into words what I really like about Eden, but I like Eden a lot. It must be the sex scenes, drugs, guns

10. Battle Angel Alita - Action + Action + Whatdoesitmeantobehuman + Action and the Last Order is good too

11. Claymore - Chicks with huge swords, its like 100 Clouds running around killing each other

12. Parasyte - GREAT thinking manga with a unique style that ponders about what it means to be human (lots like battle angel alita)

13. Historie - Another up and coming manga by Hitoshi Iwaaki (made Parasyte), does not really delve into the meaning of life but follows the life of quite an interesting guy

14. Yu Yu Hakusho - Classic that first got me into watching anime/manga when it first came on the air in the US, I think rycolaa was 1 chapter away from finishing the manga scanlation too

15. Dragon Ball - Same thing with Berserk, loved to see Goku grow from a child to an adult only he still had a screw or two loose at the end

16. 3x3 Eyes - An older manga but still great with amazing abilities just jumping around our wu friend

17. Hellsing - I just love to see Alucard killing everything in sight with nothing but bloodlust till the very end

18. Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles - While the style through me off at first the storyline just drew me in

19. Zetman - Good vs Evil? pfft, just kill them all while saving the girl Zet!!!

20. Shin Angyo Onshi - Bang Ja annoys the hell out of me but the manga still kept it interesting the whole way through

8) Naruto - i think the story before the time-skip was really really good
9) One Piece - it was the best during the Water 7 and Ennies Lobby arc
10) Claymore - lot's of action but i don't like the art

15) Berserk - Griffith is way too perfect, there's nothing he can't do

1. Elfen Lied - Best manga of all time imo. Nuff' said.
2. Death Note - Didn't really expect L to die. The twists and turns of the plot was damn exciting. Unpredictable, and epic.
3. D. Gray-Man - Same as Death Note, the twists and turns were really interesting. The new arc is hxc too.
4. Alive! The Final Evolution - Awesome plot. Kept me interested from the beginning 'till now.
5. Psyren - Just finished reading it two days ago, and the first few chapters were amazing. Not progressing much lately, but still good enough to be here. If only it was more like the game Forbidden Siren.
6. FLCL - Godly art style is godly. That drew me in to read the manga.
7. Ai Kora (Love and Collage) - Gave me the lols, too bad the translations were stopped for a while. Funniest manga ever imo.
8. Air Gear - The ecchi is five stars. Story was quite hxc in some chapters and epicly funny.
9. ToraDora - Another twisty manga mixed with love and comedy. Read the light novel, still ain't really finished yet. Hope the new chapters come out already. If they do, this will skyrocket up to 3rd place.
10. Rurouni Kenshin - My favorite anime when I was little. The manga was just as great too.
11. Fullmetal Alchemist - The latest volumes were really interesting, that I got sucked into it.
12. Beelzebub - Just barely started but its giving my the lols already. The pee scene was hilarious.
13. Asu No Yoichi - Really hilarious and 4 stars ecchi.
14. Undead (Kazura Inoue's) - Freaking dramatic. The series doesn't focus on a main story. The fact that it was divided into different stories was hxc imo.
15. Chobits - Manga was funny, but the anime was hilarious. The story was decent but the ending was a bit unfortunate.
16. Mahou Sensei Negima! - I don't know why this manga is here myself. I mean it should be in the top ten right? Well, the new chapters weren't progressing anymore lately, but still, good job Akamatsu.
17. Watashitachi No Tamura-Kun - A really odd story, but it caught my attention and got me interested in it. It deserves to be here.
18. Yu Yu Hakusho - Another one of my favorite anime when I was little. Just finished reading the manga, and the story is quite good.
19. Yankee-kun to Megane-chan - The story caught me off guard. I was just reading it out of boredom, but it turned out pretty well.
20. Claymore - I don't really know why this is here either, but just leave it at that.

I tried to do a more serious top-10 this time.

1) One piece
This manga is a revolution. The amount of things that is in each chapter is enormous. Oda can put so much thing in one panel. It's funny and unpredictable. The only bad points are a slow start and a new kind of graphics for which you need time to adapt. So much fun on a daily basis, it's just the best you can find

2) Death Note
A scenaristic masterpiece. Almost flawless from beginning to end. The only bad point is the aspect "I know that you know that I know ..."

3) 20th century boys
From the best writer in the mangaka world (Pluto, Monster and this). In terms of quality, It could have been my absolute favourite but the end isn't as good as the rest of the manga. But still, it's an amazing story that everyone should read.

4) Ares
I love it enough to do a review: http://mangahelpers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=24156
I still call this one the "light Berserk". Berserk is too emotionally fucked-up for me

5) Claymore
Great scenario, great characters, good graphisms and a little bit of gore.

6) Eyeshield 21 & Hajime no Ippo
The two best mangas around sport: the hilarious E21 and the well-done HNI

8) Shamo & Vagabond
Main character searching for true identity ... which is a killing monster in both cases

10) Fairy Tail
Mix between One piece & Rave ...when the anime will be done, I'm sure that it will become one of the most popular manga worldwide.

Special mention: Gantz, Living game , ichi the killer, GTO, hunter x hunter (fuck those ants though), shin angyo onshi (fuck that flashback and fuck the end), ...

Unclassified: Naruto & Bleach ... at their best, both mangas are in my top-5 but .... hum ... yammy nonsense (hopefully a fake) & godlike sasuke ... I don't want to argue but both mangas currently sucks from my point of view.

April 15, 2009, 03:52 PM
I'd say that really the top three are the only ones that have actual numerical value.

1. Gotta be Naruto for me.

2. Death Note

3. Tegami Bachi (for now)

4. Soul Eater

5. 666 Satan

6. Uzumaki

7. Kuroshitsuji

8. Bleach

9. Dragonball has to be on the list just because...

10. Battle Royale even though the book was way better...

I've also read/been reading Beelzebub, King of Hell, Kenshin, Inuyasha, Bitter Virgin, Chrno Crusade, Blame, Blood, Shamen King, Zombie Powder, My Balls, and random others sporadically. Never did read much One Piece, but I've been meaning to...*shrug*

Never did read much One Piece, but I've been meaning to...*shrug* I feel i have a vague understanding of your sense of humor so..... you really should give One Piece a read.:amuse

I'm willing to predict that once you get to decent amount through it you will hit parts that will make you laugh so hard you will fall to the floor and roll around clutching your sides while tears stream down your face. Even days later you will suffer random bursts of crazed laughter due to remembering what you read.:XD

o over the time looks like everyone will change their list too, it is interesting to read the list here and there. I think for me it is not fair to list my fav shoujo with fav shounen in 1 list, because i enjoy them differently, and mostly the shoujo will got kicked out from the list. So my list will something like this. If you happen to read it and never heard the title before, consider it as a recommendation :D

5.Fairy Tail & Rave
6.Yankee-kun to Megane-chan
7.Ranma 1/2
8.Bleach (recently the chapters are total pain to read, mostly because there is nothing to read lol)
9.Naruto (long time never update, but mostly because i tired with Sasuke)
10.
11.666 Satan (it will be better rank if the time skip executed better, oh not to mention crappy ending)
12.Death Note (up to where -you know who- died, the rest don't bother)

Shoujo
1.Skip Beat
2.Yamato Nadeshiko Sichi Henge
3.X/1999
4.Half Prince
5.Saver
6.Trinity Blood

Time to bring my recent overly cynical view on manga towards a new list of favourites:

1. Space Adventure Cobra
because it's godly with a +10 to charisma (prove me wrong)
2. Kochikame
because it's got the best good to bad ratio of any manga EVER... mainly because it's so fucking LONG.
3. Double Arts
Komi Naoshi could well lead a new movement of manga focused on telling the stories they want and not pandering to fans just to keep getting published... if he ever returns.
4. Pyuu to Fuku! Jaguar
Gag manga in general could take up the whole thing. No matter the age group they generally entertain me more than most battle manga or tittilating bullshit over the top stuff like you see in most of the mainstream eye.
5. Inumaru Dash/Penguin no Mondai/Sexy Commando Gaiden/Yaoyoro!/Yushagaku/etc
Because NOODLES LOVES GAG MANGA FOOLS
6. Bakuman
This is a guilty pleasure, but it's just so entertaining.
7. One Piece
because it always appears on this sorta list.


everything else isn't really worth mentioning with how preoccupied I am.

EDIT: idiot moment: Insert ICE REVOLUTION as #2 and adjust accordingly. that was one of the best new series of the last few years.

I also like Bobobo-Bo Bo-Bobo, Eyeshield 21, and Kinnikuman, but I haven't read enough chapters of any of them yet (less than 20 each) to truly judge them and place them on any sort of "Top ##" list.

The top six choices are the only definitive ones. The rest are simply series that I have enjoyed very much. Some of them I have completed or read up to the current chapter, others I haven't even read all of (mostly due to an unavailability of chapters, or just simply being behind on them) but have derived much enjoyment out of anyways, especially when compared to other series that I have read more or all of that I think are rather boring or awful (such as Naruto and Bleach which I am struggling to read alongside HXH and Reborn! at the moment).

I usually have trouble by even putting up a top 10, but lately, I decided to spent a lot of time on things like this, and I have top 50's of a shitload of things, haha.

I find it weird though, that with the manga top, it starts out with mainly cliché shounens (besides Hana Kimi en Sexy Commando), and then followed by more mature type of manga's, starting by 15.

If I go on, it goes back to cliché shounens from nr25 again, it keeps changing like this till 50, haha.

I'm getting tired of reading overhyped shounen series, it seems, since my top 10 changed quite a bit since the last time I posted it here.
Anything below 12th place is stuff that I enjoyed but not all-time favorite material. I just needed it to fill up places 13-20 :p

... And to think Detective Conan has been my #2 favorite for more than two years straight... It really shows how fickle I am with dropping stuff out of my favorites the moment I begin to get bored or when it needs to end already. :(

Well, I can't really chose an order... my top favorites are Skip Beat!, Elfen Lied, Kare Kano, Fairy Tail, Rave, Host Club, FullMetal Alchemist, Hajime no Ippo, One Piece, GTO, Mars, Kimi no iru Machi, Lovely Complex, Fruits Basket... Argh, I can hear the spirits of the manga I'm not mentioning >< I'm doing my best, spirits, it's just that I really like you all T_T Please don't haunt me ><

If I try to put them in some sort of order, it would probably look like this...
1-3. Skip Beat!, Elfen Lied, Kare Kano
4-5. Fairy Tail, FullMetal Alchemist
6-11. Rave, GTO, One Piece, Fruits Basket, Host Club
12-13. Hajime no Ippo, Mars
14-15.Kimi no Iru Machi, Lovely Complex
16-... Bakuman, xxxHolic, Eyeshield 21, Team Medical Dragon, Monster and many more :S

And that's a maybe >< My favorite manga characters are Kaede(aka Lucy) and Kyoka Mogami. Of course I like Yukino, Souchiro and Asaba too... And Natsu, Grey, Erza and Lucy... Roy and Ed and Greed and the Armstrong Family... Onizuka and Zoro of course.. and let's not forget the whole Host Club bunch... oh my.. Looks like I got carried away ^^' Sorry about that ^^' Well, I really can't put them in some sort of order.. I can tell you Kaede and Mogami are at the top :fangirl

XD Well this changes the order in some way, but I really don't want to bother with that again XD

I know for certain that I can't come up with a top 20, but I'm not even certain that I can come up with a top 10. I already don't read a lot of manga to begin with.

01 - Rurouni Kenshin
02 - Fullmetal Alchemist
03 - Psyren
04 - Claymore
05 - Basilisk
06 - Hunter x Hunter
07 - Death Note
08 - Samurai Deeper Kyo
===========
09 - One Piece
10 - Bleach
11 - Naruto
12 - Fairy Tail

9 and below are series that I'm still reading and they are there to try to round out my list, but the truth is, is that none of them are really doing anything to satisfy me. (To be blunt they're becoming increasingly boring) It's like they lost that steam that once got me interested.

Anyway, Claymore is a new addition that I just started reading, literally last night (on chapter 50) and it's quite refreshing.

It's not necessarily in a specific order, even though I tryed. But at least the first 7 are too awesome for me to not get so exited about them, that I can't rank them anymore against each other.
De facto, these first seven pretty much change after every second chapter beeing released, usually I just randomly get exited for that one with the latest chapter release.

Did I reven read other manga than that? Oh yeah, there are four in my head which can't make it into a top list, even with 10 slots left:
-Naruto, Bleach, One Piece, Change 123
Naruto had it's chance, but the latest arcs ruined that :p

well I do not want to sound agressive but I think you're judging a little bit too much by momentary feelings. I respect your order but to say Naruto/One Piece doesn't deserve to be in your list just because you disliked some current arcs is a bit harsh and kind of unfair to the series. Don't misunderstand me, I do respect your opinion. It's just that I'm not able to understand your reasoning, maybe you could be a bit more precise why you think that those series don't even deserve to be in your list ;)

No, I don't see these Shonen ever beeing able to recover in my perspective. They dropped in my opinion ever since I started focussing on Seinen - The advantages which the demographic of Seinen brings are just too big. To me, they make most Shounen (obviously there are exeptions such as Death Note and Tegami Bachi) just seem not attractive anymore with their often rather slightly naive or simplified worlds.

But after all this thread is about favorites and not dislike lists.
I think I'll add Oyasumi Punpun to it soon, despite it to be very weird and often depressing it still has qualities :D

Hint: this is just A list. I like all mangas I suggested here. I hope you read some mangas that i suggested... Most of them are shoujo.. and Most are still ongoing.

Least favorite:
Koko ni iru yo: I hated the end. It was a very unexpected ending.
And
Antique romance: I found this manga very weird. The drawings arent really what I call cute.

Some other mangas I recommend:
Dear my Girls-- Very cute manhwa!!! Same manhwa author that made a kiss to my prince. Very romantic?
A Kiss to my prince-- somewhat sad... But very romantic ;)
Teachers pet-- Smutty, drawings and story is decent.

lol until now havent read those many mangas, but going on that path :)

1º-Naruto

why did i put Naruto on first?
cuz in my oppinion is the best shonen out there, Naruto since almost 3 years that i see it and i love it, the all story is just pretty damm good! Kishi done an amazing job with everything and for me until now havent see any character that beats the character that Naruto is, he is just awesome and a very rare type of person. i like everrything about him, althought not being very smart and even very skilled he always trained and try to fulfill is dreams and he had a very hard life and that made him the person he is today , the ones that never give up on his word and that first of all protect his friends withouth second thoughts. the all naruto universe is just crazy , somany awesome characters and great sotry and plots behind it.

2º-One Piece

it has also a great history but in my oppinion it can is not as good as Naruto but it is also great , so for everyone that hasnt read it, if you like fantasy , comedy read OP now :)

3º-Death Note
Death Note is great , it has an awesome story and characters like L are epic. In the beggining it is only good, not amazing but in few chapters you guys are going to pay 100 % attention to it cuz it is awesome to see the battle between genius , one of has his ideals and is going to do everything in he can to make that happen and in the other side it is genius that want to catch him. but one think that i have to say is that reading the manga is going to be a bit hard cuz you need to be always with attention so you can understand everything, but it will pay off :). but in any case i havent watched the anime , but some friends of mine say that the anime is very very good , some of them say that it is even better than the manga. it is only 37 episodes i think , so i think in death note you wouldnt loose much if you decided to see anime instead of the manga.

4º-Fairy Tail
Fairy Tail is also great but in my oppinion obvioulsy a bit worse than Naruto and OP but it is still great, it is similiar to both Naruto and OP and for that i can recommend these manga to the people that read Naruto and OP and havent read Fairy Tail. It has a good story , good characters and for that give it a try :)

5º-Beelzebub
in beelzebub i am actually around chapter 30 but it is great. the story is basically a naked baby and a deliquent , so by this you guys can already get the idea that it is pretty cool and funny, so give it a chance , its going to make you laugh :)

6º-Vinland Saga
i am not much of a seinen lover but altough i have only read 10 chapters think i finded it great, i still dont know much about it, but based on what i saw it can give me the idea that it is pretty cool with a good art and also with a good story , so i will definetely keep reading it :)

for now still these is all i can do but when i have some time and i finish reading the chapters out of beelzebub and vinland saga i am going to try something new

6º-Vinland Saga

Vinland Saga has a lot more up it's sleeve. After all it switched to a Seinen magazine/Monthly release after a while. Especially in the arts you will notice the difference severely, after all one week (which was the release pace in the beginning before switching magazines) is a short amount of time to draw properly.
And, ofc, the story didn't really develop after just such a short time :)

My current toplist:
1. Kokou no Hito
2. Vinland Saga
3. Wolf Guy - Ookami no Monshou
4. Vagabond
5. Planetes
6. Chobits
7. Historie
8. Freesia
9. Berserk
10. Nononono
11. Tegami Bachi
12. Shigurui
13. Futari Ecchi
14. Death Note
15. Oyasumi Punpun

Kokou no Hito takes the top for pure awesomeness, great arts and atmosphere and delivering a nice depth of storytelling and characters.
Nononono dropping lower because of the later story arc developements. Not that I'ld dislike all story developements per se, but in my opinion Okamoto overstrained the limits of staging and arts which his style gave. It felt akward and not staged well.

No, I don't see these Shonen ever beeing able to recover in my perspective. They dropped in my opinion ever since I started focussing on Seinen - The advantages which the demographic of Seinen brings are just too big. To me, they make most Shounen (obviously there are exeptions such as Death Note and Tegami Bachi) just seem not attractive anymore with their often rather slightly naive or simplified worlds.

well that's a reason, I don't think that Shounen are simplified or naive per se but I understand your point. Still I wonder about "Tegami Bachi", it's not really a shounen with a great depth (but nevertheless a good manga!), so why do you make an exception for it?

My list in no specific order:

1. Naruto
2. One Piece
3. Hunter x Hunter
4. Monster
5. Death Note
6. Katekyo Hitman Reborn
7. Bakuman
8. Berserk
9. Vinland Saga
10. Kimi ni Todoke
11. Fullmetal Alchemist
12. Tegami Bachi
13. Deadman Wonderland
14. D.Gray-man
15. Liar Game
16. Soul Eater
17. Gantz
18. Medaka Box
19. Alive - The Final Evolution
20. Shiki

It openly accepts the childishness of the demographic and doesn't even try to avoid it. I think the whole setting has something beatiful about it, and it's not such a dogged and trying-to-be-serious battle story. Nor does it try to be deep -because it indeed isn't- and combines this with a lovely style of arts. Overall it has the feeling of a christmas fairy tale to me.
It's somewhat coming straight to the point. All this story about heart is pretty much what Bleach/Naruto/OP are, too, if you look at it. No realism whatsoever in these series, it's all about the protagonists succeeding when they're determined enough and bring in enough emotions to use enough powers. Tegami Bachi is the first one to tell this fact right away without disguising it because the characters shoot their own heart.

1-Dragon Ball
2-Hunter X Hunter
3-Rookies

That's all for now.

February 14, 2011, 06:27 PM
My updated top 20 picks among ongoing series. I also threw in descriptions and explanations for my rankings where i thought them appropriate

Current Top 3
1) Naruto (still the best overall manga i've read)
2) Beelzebub (A really good comedy manga. Best i've read in a while)
3) Fairy Tail (Everything good about shounen in condensed and purified form)

4) Claymore
5) Veritas (I put this on here in the distant hope it's the story will go on.)
6) One Piece
7) Bleach
8) The Breaker/The Breaker New Waves (New Waves is a vast improvement on it's predecessor and i think the predecessor was pretty good)
9) Ao No Exorcist
10) The World God Only Knows
11) Onihime VS
12) Sun-ken Rock (Promising but it's going to drop right off the list if it doesn't pull it's story together into a better plot soon.)
13) Ubel Blatt (It would be higher if it weren't on hiatus)
14) Superior†
15) Nurarihyon no Mago
16) Mahou Sensei Negima! (A solid shounen story that delivers it's story with a childish charm.)
17) Rosario+Vampire (A ecchi series with decent characters, but it's tendency to rely on the ecchi bit hurts it's narrative more than a little.)
18) To-Love-Ru/To-Love-Ru Darkness (A true ecchi series. It maks no excuses about what it is and in a way i respect that about it.)
19) Berserk (Great manga that drags because of it's sluggish pace.)
20) Vinland Saga (Great art, solid characters, and a fairly unimpressive story. Plus, once you recognize who the main character is based after it's kinda hard to ignore the obvious way the story will end. That's the risk with going with a historical based story i suppose.)

---------------------------

I have a rather unfavorable opinion of senien story telling as a whole at the moment. It seems to me that, of the stuff i've read, the authors spend so much time going out of there way to be as gritty as possible that they end up neglecting the little things like cohesive character development or an intelligent plot.

Using over the top brutality, sex, and gore to hide the fact that the underlying story is just not very good. Much the same way Shounen series sometimes use Ecchi.

Very occasionally i'll come across one that does everything right and delivers a quality yet mature themed story like Berserk or Ubel Blatt. But more often than not i hit something like Gantz, which spends so much time trying to be "adult" that it ends up neglecting and undermining it's own story and character development.

managed to read some mangas since my last post here so i will update my top mangas:

1- NARUTO;
2- One Piece;
3- Bakuman;
4- Death Note;
5- Toriko;
6- Fairy Tail;
7- Beelzebub;

it is difficult to rank the mangas that we like , for me withouth any doubts Naruto is first, about the others definetely One Piece is when talking about the typical shonen for me the second and for that it is pretty good. Bakuman and death note both made by the same guys are different for the normal shonens stories but they are very good and for that they are pretty good , about toriko ,fairy tail and beelzebub they are obviously for me lower than Naruto or One Piece but that is not something bad cuz beat Naruto or One Piece is extremely difficult. those three are still pretty good. recomend my top mangas to everyone :)
[hr]
managed to read more mangas but this time i will rank them differently according to different categories.

Fantasy:
-Naruto;
-One Piece;
-Fairy Tail;
-Toriko;
-Beelzebub;

Comedy:
-Slam Dunk;
-One Piece;
-Beelzebub;

Hopefully Gintama will appear on this category soon , but until now only read 15 chapters :(

Mystery:
-Death Note;
-Monster;

Sports:
-Slam Dunk;
-Giant Killing;


Best Manga - Naruto

I like Gintama a lot but i've always found the manga hard to read for some reason.

Maybe it's all the puns and jokes that don't translate easily to english or maybe it's the sheer density of the text on each page, but i've always found the anime easier to get into. Probably because they spread everything out so i get the chance to comprehend how hilarious it all is.

Good luck though.:)

yeah i also found a bit hard to read and it is mostly because of the density of text and i also find this first chapters not as funny as i was thinking it would be , and if it is hard to you , for me is even harder cuz i am portuguese and although my english isnt that bad it isnt that good, and i dont know the meaning of lots of the words and i make alot of basic mystakes ;( but thats one of the reasons why i am reading mangas , which is so i can improve my english :)
i would try to go for the anime but nowadays i find much more interesting reading the mangas, Naruto was the only one that i started from the anime , but on my oppinion Naruto anime is very good, on that time , that i started watching it, i didnt even knew what a manga was and i saw it non stop ( which it wouldnt have happen for example if it was OP , that i find the anime super boring , much worse than the manga), so i will still try to read gintama manga , but in case i dont managed to get into very well , will try the anime :)

i still havent read BLEACH till the latest chapters but i am still going to rank it

1.Naruto - 20 - Perfect!
2.One Piece - 19 - Find it a bit inferior comparing to Naruto , and only cuz of that i won't give it a 20, so i would say almost perfect
3.Slam Dunk - 20 - i rank it inferior comparing to OP but i give it a better mark , cuz here i am talking about a sport manga and Slam Dunk is everything a sport manga needs , so i give it a 20 :) i just think it ended too soon :crying
4.Death Note - 18 - At sometimes it was a bit boring but it is definitely one of the best mystery mangas ever , characters like L and Light are one of the best i have ever come across
5.Toriko - 17 - Compared to Naruto and OP i think it is a bit inferior but it is still quite good, but i recommend, you only read it after you finished eating!
Never try to read it with an empty stomach :P
6.Fairy Tail - 17 - Also a quite good typical shounen with a lot of comic moments
7.Bakuman - 17 - You like manga? dah, of course you like , cuz if you dont , you never be on this forum :blink lol, so why not read Bakuman, a manga that is about 2 kids ( now adults ) that want to become mangakas ? with some romance and comedy it makes bakuman pretty good and interesting to read, and is a good away of knowing more about how Shonen Jump works
8.Enigma - 17 - until now it has being pretty good and interesting :tem and can't wait for more!
9.Magico - ? -despite the fact that i read only 2 chapters found it good. Doesnt make much sense to rank it , but this is based the way i feel about the mangas that i read or read on the current moment so .......
10.BLEACH -14 - find it extremely overrated ! the plot doesn't develop much
11.Beelzebub -14 - find it quite boring now, but it is still pretty funny
12.Monster -14 - didn't like much the end ,cuz it didn't conclude much and left the thinks wide open

i read lots of manhwa since my last post here, and i dropped and lost interest in lots of mangas ( like beelzebub), so i must redo my list. It's hard to class them so i didn't order them.
1-Hajime no ippo best sport manga to me
3-Ares an amazing war manhwa
3-One piece
4-the breaker/the breaker new wave
5-gunnm/gunnm last order on hiatus atm cuz the author had problem with his editors, the best dark science-fi mangas i ever read
6-berserk another dark mangas, never get enough of gatsu and his sword
7-yureka a manhwa with an unique genre: talking about mmo. a must read
8-noblesse best webcomic manhwa that i read
9-ubel blatt an amazing fantasy battle mangas
10-bakuman another mangas with an unique genre: talking about mangas :p
11-zippy ziggy funniest manhwa i've ever read
12-gto/young gto funniest mangas i've ever read
13-I.D an awesome fantasy manhwa, a must read
14-P.k a good fighting manhwa
15-legend of maian another fantasy manhwa
16-veritas on hiatus, but an awesome fighting manhwa
17-freezing sci-fi manhwa
18-gantz sometime very interesting, sometime very annoying. but its still on my favorites. An awesome sci-fi manga :p
19-Claymore awesome mangas, only bad point, its based on a monthly release, so its really going slow and i always forgot the story and i need to re-read the last chapters
20-sun ken rock a manhwa about mafia, a real one not some joke like hitman reborn :p

I respect others people choice but i must admit some people are really shonen jump made. the half of their top 20 mangas is a copy-paste of mangas published in shonen jump. There is alot of pretty good mangas/manhwas around, it's kinda sad to see some people limited only on shonen jump and on popular mangas.

I don't post my TOP in ages , but actually that's only like 1 page ago here -_-;

And i am finding difficult to decide :oh

So i decided to write my top on a different way.

Absolutely Amazing

Naruto -> it has moments of course that this doesn't happen , but in the general in my opinion it is the best shounen out there and the story is simply amazing.

Very very good

One Piece -> It's an awesome story with very good characters, that had some arcs that are just "amazing" though other might be a bit boring. The second best shounen out there for me , so everyone that likes shounen should clearly read it !

Slam Dunk -> One of my first experiences with a sports manga and i loved it ! It's a very awesome manga with a lot of comedy moments but also serious one. After i start reading it that i realize why WSJ jump had his sales go down after it end. Together with Dragon Ball , those 2 were the best mangas of WSJ of that time. So read it

Death Note -> Though some parts might have been a bit boring , in the overall it is a very good manga with some characters that i will never forget. A manga with a lot of mystery and suspense very well done.

Very Good

Bakuman -> A manga about Mangakas , the ones that created Death Note. It's a very good one , with a very nice story and it's a must for everyone that likes to read mangas.

Vinland Saga -> A very good manga with the most awesome art that i have saw until now. The only problem is that it is a monthly manga.
But the story is very well done and the characters are very realistic ! A must for everyone that likes Seinen !

Claymore -> Just like Vinland Saga it is a monthly manga so that is the most negative thing about it ! The story is pretty good and though the characters might be hard to identify sometimes , this mangas really deserves to be more popular ! I am not going to be spoiler so i can only recommend you to read it :yelling

Toriko -> Though i can't call it right now a very good manga , i expect it to reach this "level" soon. It has a lot of potential and though the general idea of the story is simple , i am expecting to see Toriko take Bleach Spot in the "3 most popular mangas" soon.

Good Mangas

Fairy Tail -> A very nice story and with nice characters . The plot is still very simple though there is already out a considerable ammount of chapters. But eventually Mashima is going to start telling us and developing the plot .

Magico -> Though it has only 11 chapters out , i am expecting a lot from it and i have really enjoy it so far.

Enigma -> It's a good manga, with a lot of suspense and with good characters. I still expecting to see more from it to take more conclusions, but until now it has been at least worth of seeing.

Sket Dance -> Though i am only at chapter 40, i have enjoyed it so far ! And Sket Dance has very good and well done characters , some of them are just epic. It's a manga "similar" to Gintama in the way that you can at least expect it to make you laugh !

Beelzebub -> Though i don't have the same interest about it any more it is a manga with some very good moments. And it definitely deserves a shot if you like shounen mangas.

I haven't read that many manga compared to some of the veterans here so I will limit myself to a top 10

1 : Haruka-na machi e by Taniguchi. That's one of my first manga, it gave me the will to learn more about them and Japan. And it is a marvelous story. Taniguchi others works are also extremely good and I strongly recommend them.
2 : Nausicaa by Miyasaki. Well the animation master deserve it's place to the top. Nausicaa is simply a must read
3 : Monster by Naoki Urasawa. Another masterpiece, it was hard to decide if I prefer it over 20th century Boys, but even if both are great, I think I prefer Monster. Following Dr Tenma on his struggle to discover the truth was breathtaking.
4 : GTO by Tōru Fujisawa. Another classic, but the humor, the characters and the originality of this manga are still at the top
5 : One Piece by Eichiiro Oda. Well it is only this low because it is unfinished. But yeah what has not been said about One Piece greatness.
6 : NonNonBâ by Chikuma Shobō. Another of my early manga. I simply love the design of this mangaka. And the story is full of kindness and naivity.
7 : Fullmetal alchemist by Hiromu Arakawa. I guess everyone know about this great manga.
8 : Gintama by Hideaki Sorachi. It seems this manga finally start to get the place it deserve on this forum. More and more users say they like it and that makes me very happy. Gintama is just a monument dedicated to humour and craziness. I'm so glad it exists
9 : History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi by Hajime Kamegaki. My favorite battle manga. The adventure of this poor Kenichi are really funny. And seing him tortured by his masters every week is only for our joy
10 : Kami no Shizuku by Tadashi Agi and Shu Okimoto : A manga about wine. I guess I can only forgive all its little weaknesses
