I support Dragonball - Its the manga which brought me to this world. Honestly Im not sure If I would be reading manga today if it wasn't for DB. I spend my childhood with this series, I have only positive memories. Very nostalgic. It clearly deserves more credit.
I'd like to support Vagabond for Best Overall Manga.
From my viewpoint, it deserves the title, on par with Hunter X Hunter and Akira. And it is the climax of Inoue's drawing/painting, which I love.
As the one who wrote a recommendation for it, I will support Mushishi so that it can go directly to the final without tie vote :-)
This was a really tough choice, I like a lot of mangas out there but I believe that hxh could be among the big three if it wasn't for those damn hiatuses. To be honest, if it was still on hold, I would have probably nominated another series just out of spite to the author^^'
It made my heart cry to choose between HxH and FMA.... But since FMA is completed and it is already a masterpiece I had to give it my vote.
Yes this one is easy. There is only one which is finished.
Even though FMA is finished and the world and characters are awesome, Berserk still has a greater vibe to it...it's best in its category as Fantasy, Adventure and Action goes IMO, just because of the richness of the world and the epic journey of the character...but recognizing the story-telling capability of Miura is what pushes this one to the top in this category
DBZ FTW though I wish I could vote for FMA as well.
I would go with Dragonball here. It's the manga I actually associate not only all Shounen manga, but also every manga. It's actually the one that made manga popular all over the world.
And also as for me I really like long stories as Dragonball was and of course I like Goku.
Berserk - Despite a rather meh start, it built up to be incredibly epic dark fantasy.
Naruto - Good shonen that I still like, but just doesn't strike like it used to.
Fullmetal Alchemist - Amazing. Compact, well built, interesting, great cast of characters.
Dragonball - Classic. Loved the earlier arcs, but it just dragged.
Mushishi - My vote. I just love the eerie mysterious athmosphere. The episodic structure works perfectly for this concept. Which makes it enjoyable not only as a whole series, but by chapter-by-chapter basis. I just love how this manga feels.
Haven't read much of mushishi(only first few chapters). Neither read dragonball(watched anime). Vote goes to full metal alchemist(watched the anime here mostly too ).
