I nominate MASHIMA Hiro for the Best Mangaka
I nominate Akira Amano for Katekyo Hitman Reborn art and story xP
While I love Oda and Urasawa(especially that guy >_<),they have some big pacing problems,so I'll just go with Osamu Tezuka,the God of manga.
I nominate Akira Amano for Reborn with her fantastic detailed art and storyline that never leaves you disappointed
I nominate Naoki Urasawa for Best Mangaka. he created a lot of masterpieces manga
I nominate 尾田 栄一郎 Oda Eiichiro!
As much as I want to support Urasawa too. I'll go with supporting my all-time favorite Eiichiro Oda. Mainly because he keeps up with his series, seldom will you see a series serialized weekly and has been ongoing for more than a decade that still retains its quality (story and art wise). He's dedicated in giving pleasure to his readers and he loves it (at least that's what most of his intervies suggest). And I presume Odachii still remains humble after all these happening to him. Truly one of the best mangaka of this generation.
I nominate 尾田 栄一郎 Oda Eiichirō as the Best Mangaka.
He wrote one manga that is more than tenb years old and still makes sense, and don't loose any of the lines.
Though i know that there are certainly some Mangaka that deserve more this distinction, i don't really care. Say what you want but i will support Masashi Kishimoto. He has created one of the best Shounen ever IMO, and though it has been more than 10 years since he created Naruto, it still keeps being interesting and though i don't think that Kishi had everything planned like for example Oda much likely had regarding One Piece, it's still a beautiful and really coherent story. I freaking love everything about it. The universe, the characters, the fights. And one thing that Kishi definitely deserves props is the fact that imo he doesn't really drag the story. Most of the chapters end being important to the story itself.
I am the type of people, that likes to end the things that gets obsessed with in the less time possible, though after reading/see * whatever is the case* i get angry with myself for being so fast * But when you are hooked on something, you want the story to progress and Kishi actually does that.
There are great manga out there, but how many time did the authors need to draw it? Berserk, Hunter X Hunter .... definitely great manga, but each of them completely fail on making me addicted on them. These kinda of works can only be fully enjoyed if you are reading them when they are already completed.
I still remember when i first saw Naruto. A friend of mine had already talked a bit about it to me, but as most of the people, i only started valuing it when i first watched Naruto. So there was a time where Naruto anime, was airing on TV. After it ... i got really obsessed with it. It was more than 3 years ago, and on that time i didn't even had an idea about what manga or anime were. Even though i am not an anime fan, i prefer manga, there was a time where i watched more than 30 episodes of Naruto in a single day. It was crazy. I caught up with the latest episode out on that time, and then i discovered the manga. After that i have been following Naruto, and even though it had its ups and downs i never was behind for more than 2 chapters, and on times i were it was because i was out on vacations
Kishi takes this category for me, for keeping the story interesting, for making believable characters and for the awesome plot, that isn't predictable at all, and that can be seen by the fact that Naruto section is without any doubts one of the sections with more movement.
I nominate Hideaki Sorachi for the Best Mangaka.
I support Oda Eiichiro for Best Mangaka. His genius knows no bounds.
I really wanted to nominate either Naoki Urasawa or Takehiko Inoue, in my opinion they are the greatest mangakas today, but I would be disrespecting the Manga History. I nominate Osamu Tezuka, it's not about the quality of his work, although he wrote some masterpieces, but about LEGACY, he wasn't the only mangaka at his time, but he was the greatest and the most prolific. He inspired generations of mangakas directly or indirectly and not only that, he was admired by many people of many different artistic fields, such as Stanley Kubrick, Mauricio de Sousa (more or less the brazilian counterpart of Charles M. Schulz) and Hayao Miyazaki (ok, he wrote mangas too, but we know that his speciality is animation). I really want to write more about him, I have the feeling that I will ways miss something when writing about Tezuka, but that's pretty much what I wanted to say, so good luck Tezuka.
I support Naoki Urasawa. I rly can't vote for a author whose manga is not finished. Thus Oda and Kishimoto are of picture. A manga is remembered if the tale is well said. That can be only judged if the work is finished. This guy is a famous seinen author -> Monster!
After Naoki, my vote would go to Akira Toriyama - > Dragonball.
