What your favorite manga and why?

    Azumanga Daioh-
    One of the first mangas I ever picked up, and has since been my top favorite manga(or anime) ever. No manga(/anime) has ever made me laugh as much as Azumanga, and the characters are simply adorable.

    I've never read a manga that has characters like these. They are incredibly real and well-written. Sure, they have their typical manga/anime character cliches, but they don't rule the characters and this lets you feel a certain personal connection with them. In some way, they're more than just characters, and this is what makes the manga wonderful for me.

    Other favorites are Hidamari Sketch, Rurouni Kenshin, Detective Conan/Case Closed, Mushishi, and Eyeshield 21, but I don't feel much like explaining why I like them.

    Battle Angel Alita and 3 X 3 Eyes were probably my most favorite manga.

    I love the characters, the art design and the world those mangas bring me to. I only wish then animated series of them lasted a bit longer than they did. I'm also really hoping that James Cameron does a decent job with the Battle Angel movie he's making.

    Bleach now holds a certain place in my heart because of it's diverse characters.

    I mean, most manga have static light-skinned characters which is great only I was a little upset at how most lacked diversity (Naruto has recently added dark-skinned people).

    In Bleach, there are several dark-skinned characters like: Chad, Don Kanonji, Yoruichi, Love, Zommari.

    Naruto. I love the concept, it's so cool! I'd want to be a ninja with powers. I just don't like Naruto's orange. I mean, what kind of ninja wears ORANGE?!

    Mirai Nikki. It's crazy, twisty (not to mention twisted), and so far has failed to lose my interest. I love it.

    My favorite manga... Eyaah! There's two of 'em. Seriously. x3

    I adore Pandora Hearts because it's an interesting twist on Alice in Wonderland. <333
    I love the ideas of the Chains and the whole 'Tragedy of Sabrie' thing... and especially the thing with Jack Vessalius living on inside of Oz, and then the off chance that
    Glen Baskerville might exist somewhere inside of Elliot Nightray
    ... EEEE!! So cool! X3!!

    And then Yu-Gi-Oh! GX, because it's totally different from the anime...
    Yes, the characters are all the same, the duelings still there, but the cards are definitely a new, fresh thing. Jaden has all new heroes, and I just love to see the backstory that Kageyama came up with. x3

    I don't friggn know why but it might just be the original Yu-Gi-Oh one because it was ridiculously weird, creepy, and different.

    I just liked it okay?


    I think I might like creepy mangas most.

    Two of my favorites are Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh! manga. Because both are awesome.

    --C4-- Only my Railgun

    Well I have like three.

    Naruto - A lot of people tend to hate on Naruto and I can understand that they may dislike the long *** fillers of the animes or the annoying voice of Naruto in the dub but as they all say the manga is completly different and lacks the nutorious filler.

    Ga-Rei - I really liked Ga-Rei and when I heard that it was being cancelled I was really really upset. The whole concept and the characters were very interesting.

    Bloody Monday - Reminds me a lot of Death Note but with the main being the one doing the catching. Super whiz kid with computers with the ability to hack nearly anything.

    deathseer Oh, u mad bro?

    Current: Air Gear

    Love OH's designs and always will remain my favorite. No matter what.

    Soon to be: Aria, the Scarlet Ammo

    Has a really good story going for it, looks pretty funny.

    ShinyPichu4Ever Eye of the Storm

    FullMetal Alchemist is, and always will be, my favorite manga. Everything about it is extremely interesting and original. And of course Envy is still a very popular villain.

    Naruto. I finished the Yu-Gi-Oh series, and I've read some of Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh GX and Shaman King and I didn't like them much.

    In the middle of Death Note, and I really like it.

    my favrite is definitly The Meloncholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, i mean theres not one of us out there who wants to meat an alien, i mean with one side you get to see the sci-fi action unfold and the other you can completely relate to haruhi for wanting to find some excitement in life.

    but my secend favrite is probobly tsubasa, CLAMP RULZ!

    Evilchibi_pichu Entertain me minions

    Alive: The Final Evolution, with MPD Pyscho and xxxHolic at second place.

    shadow wolf The one and only!

    A manga called Rurouni Kenshin. It has a good way of combing action, humor, romance, and tragedy in one. I honestly just loved it because I got into it and had a good ending.

    One Piece. It's a truly epic tale. The story is all so beautifully woven together and it's just different. A very authentic world.
    On the other hand... Akira is a piece of graphic genius. One Piece wins overall but Akira gets a worthy merit.

    My favorite is the Dragonball. Just simply because I grew up reading and watching the anime as well. And I like the character of Gokou, despite the odds of trials and hardship he still can smile and positive that he can overcome anything.
