dragonball, gon, GTO, samurai XXX(excited? nah, just one X)
Rurouni Kenshin and Marmalade Boy are my two favourites from the Shonen and Shoujo spectrums...
Honorable mentions: Kimagure Orange Road, Sailor Moon, Code name wa Sailor V, and Death Note.
Also, I think Hajime no Ippo will be one of the greatest manga ever when it's all completed and whatever. Every chapter keeps me hooked and wanting more. I don't think I've ever read a chapter of that manga where it's left me going "Oh, well that was boring or I don't want to read this anymore." At about 740 chapters and still going, it's definitely one of the greats---but I digress...it's not completed yet....
**Forgot Hikaru no Go--awesome manga and anime.
I would always say Rurouni Kenshin
The completed manga that i chose for best is :
Ichigo 100% I loved it AWESOME just AWESOME
Rurouni Kenshin <3
Aishiteruze Baby - Story about a Boy taking care of his abandoned cousin. GREAT story
Saiyuki - well....the first Saiyuki is done, but the overall plot isnt....but great story about 4 journeymen.
Flame of Recca - aside from the anime, the manga is a really great story about a ninja saving his master.
Mars - A shy painter girl meets the aggressive "playboy" and falls in love. very muture themes.
Togari - An Excellent Story about a human from hell sent back to capture 108 sins.
There's more....but i'd be reiterating what most people are saying.
just wondering, have u guys read dragonball? did u not like it?
lol just curious, because to me it's one of the classics that can never be replaced, the granddaddy of all mangas
actually, that couldnt be moe false. Maybe if you were talking about something like astro boy. Tezuka was the father of manga. Toriyama just learned well from his past.
Probably Elfen Lied, Dragonball Z, and Sailormoon (it is COMPLETED right?! O_o)
Flame of Recca
yu yu hakusho
hikaru no go
legend of wind
Blame, Slam Dunk, Monster.
Maybe, I'll add others later.
hmm this might be a long list
Ichigo 100% (If you're into being mentally manipulated by the mangaka)
Flame of recca
Akira (Although the anime imo was equally or even more awesome)
Midori no hibi
Battle Royale (More you read the more you wanna puke)
H2 (two of my most favourite adachi mangas)
GTO (Never laughed this much before reading a manga)
Hikaru No Go (wish they made a side story after the ending)
Parallel (awesome love story)
there are much more but most of them are not finished yet and have continued on for ages and ages like ippo, berserk, shaman king and many more XD
