Top 10 Favorite Manga

Postby Pastachan » Sun Oct 12, 2008 10:39 pm

You may list more or less than ten, but please share your favorite manga with us. :) If you would like to update your list, then just quote your previous one for a quicker and easier comparison.

I'll list my top five to start off.

1. Naruto
2. Aria
3. Negima!
4. Parasyte
5. Vagabond

I could only manage to fit five titles into my list, and even right now I'm not that confident in the ordering of these titles. The more I read, the more I'll be able to fill in here, so look out for titles like Kiichi!! showing up soon.

Ugh, urk, blah!! I...I can't do it! I can give a general top 5, but once I start looking to broaden it and make a top 10, I freak out! There's SO much good stuff out there! It's nearly impossible! Give me a genre, and I can give you a top 10 in the genre. Or give me a category of some kind.... But, but.....

::sighs::

Why do I have to be the only one who reads so much manga on here?? Alright, here's my general top 5 (but! Keep in mind there are tons of others that are probably more worth being put on this list than those that are on it, this is just what I tell people on a frequent basis as being accessible and excellent.):

X/1999
Berserk
Nana
Beck
Death Note

No particular order. Except X. X pwns all. Others that I must mention: Phoenix (or ANY Tezuka series), The Walking Man, Yoshihiro Tatsumi works, Tramps Like Us, Marmalade Boy, Claymore...oh goodness. I better stop while I'm ahead....

Long ago there was much talk amongst us of making the actual ANN manga section grow like mad, but that was also when I ended up "quitting the internet". But, I'll do what I can to make it boom on both forums! I just need to finish my application to Japan first, so give me a couple weeks, and then it's ON!

No one's stopping you. :)

Well, I used to read a lot more till I got to college. Then I starting watching more anime. You've reminded me of how far behind I probably am with some of the releases I've been keeping up with.

Let's see... What do I have still lying around my apartment: Gunm - Last Order, Ah! Megami-sami, NHK ni Yokoso!, Akira, Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind, Gunsmith Cats (which will likely be unloaded at Book Off in the near future), Ghost in the Shell (English and Japanese), Dominion and a pile of flotsam. The titles I've listed in italics are series I've purchased the Japanese tankoubon of.

Hmm, maybe I'll make an extended list of favorites once I go through my collection again. Which will most likely be very soon. I think that's a grand idea. ^.^

Glad I could remind you of manga. Hehehe. When I started college it was actually the anime that went and the manga that increased. Oppostie for me.
