    Re: Best Mangaka

    I nominate 尾田 栄一郎 Oda Eiichirō as the Best Mangaka.

    Oda never fails to impress his fans by maintaining the exact same quality in every single chapter he creates. While other mangakas try so hard to keep up with him, Oda makes it look like he's doing his job so easily. He kept an open goal, and didn't corner himself with complicated events... Oda is a genius in every aspect.

    Re: Best Mangaka

    I nominate 高橋 和希 Kazuki Takahashi for Best Mangaka.

    Yu-Gi-Oh! inspired a card game which became the most successful one ON THE PLANET with thousands of different ways to be played, and earns hundreds of thousands of millions every year! Kazuki Takahashi deserves the proper recognition for being the mangaka to create one of the greatest franchises of all time, even if it was an accident.

    Nuff said.

    One Piece is a series created by a genius, it's a masterpiece, it's like a fine wine, it only gets better with time.

    Re: Best Mangaka

    I nominate Yoshitoshi ABe as the best Mangaka (for his Ryushika Ryushika short stories)

    Each chapter is colored, drawn on his iPad with an app and his finger, and his humor is indeed one of the finest i've ever read.

    edit
    ABe-sensei is not an unknown one in manga and anime industry: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yoshitoshi_ABe

    I just haven't read Haibane Renmei, NieA Under 7 nor Ame no Furu Basho, so I nominate him for the only work I know...

    Re: Best Mangaka

    We are voting for best mangaka, not for the best shounen or manga. So, any mangaka who is known mainly for one manga won't get my vote.
    So, I nominate Naoki Urasawa for Best Mangaka.

    Just look at his work:
    - 20th century Boys:
    - Pluto
    - Monster

    How many mangaka wrote 3 manga of this quality ?

    He has received the Shogakukan Manga Award three times, the Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize twice, and the Kodansha Manga Award once.

    Re: Best Mangaka

    I nominate Takehiko Inoue for best mangaka.

    Sure, Vagabond has been on hiatus for a while(doesn't change the fact that it's awesome), but he has kept REAL going throughout 2011, which is a masterpiece in both art and story.

    Re: Best Mangaka

    Naoki Urasawa is indeed The Storyteller. The king of suspense. The greatest living mangaka. Takehiko Inoue is also there on the top, especailly when it comes to art.

    But for the sake of nominating, I'll put up Yukimura Makoto.

    Planetes is sci-fi at its best. It handles big questions about life, space and values of a person. It is a very humane story, however it doesn't go to deep or angsty. There is plenty of comedy too, and it is well balanced. Excellent. Vinland Saga is also brilliant. It is a big historical story. And an amazing read. Thrilling, captivating, brutal, funny, thought provoking. You gotta admire Yukimuras abilities. The way he draws, and build the story and handles big and difficult themes. And the background work he must have done to both of his series. In my opinion he is there, raising to the top of mangaka.

    Re: Best Mangaka

    I nominate Osamu Tezuka for Best Mangaka.
    The contributions he has brought to the manga genre as we know it today are incalculable. My gratitude to this man, this genius, will never be enough. One of the most eclectic minds of Japanese postwar.
    Osamu, Thanks : )

    I nominate Matsumoto Taiyou for consistently pushing the boundries of manga art and storytelling for the last 25 years. An early devotee of the la nouvelle movement, Matsumoto sensei's work is a blend of manga and bande dessinée.

    I nominate Togashi Yoshihiro as the Best Mangaka. The man made Yu Yu Hakusho and is currently drawing HunterXHunter. I love all his work and how violent most of it.

    Re: Best Mangaka

    As much as I want to nominate Oda, I believe some competition should be in order.
    I nominate the deceased Tadashi Kawashima that did Alive-The Final Evolution.
    He never gave up fighting cancer and living life fully even after creating a great story like Alive.
    You have my thanks.
