This section is dedicated to the discussion of Japanese Anime and Manga — as long as it's not Pokémon related! Want to geek out about a long time classic? Or maybe you keep up with currently airing anime, and you want to join in on the excitement and discussion? You've come to the right place!
That's a tough question though haha but if I have to pick one...it will have to be One Piece :) nothing like it out there. Adventure, action, moments of triumph, moments of defeat, moments of serious tragedy but with the coolest band of heroes you could ever find, going out to take on the world (and make more friends along the way)
Fruits Basket. I don't feel like I need to explain why, it's really just the best manga I've ever read. It's amazing in every way, and really shaped my world of animanga. Without it, I wouldn't even be here today, still reading manga!
My favourite part of the whole series so far :) close second would either be Part 3 or (after seeing it in anime form to refresh the memories) Part 5. Are you reading Part 8 Jojolion?
Nah, I don't read mangas with action scenes anymore. It gives me headaches with those lines and stuff haha. though I still am a big fan of jojo. But anime-only haha. though if part 6 gets too long to be animated. I'd probably read that!
No idea when Part 6's anime will come out, especially now when Part 5 has only just ended. Maybe early next year. I'm curious to see how that one will be found by the anime-only fans, with the new main character and the setting. Haha no worries, I'll ask you what you think of Part 8 once the anime team get to it....um, in a couple of years? It's definitely been quite a trip, especially the Stand battles and the Stands themselves.
Reading Berserk up until the Conviction arc is the best experience I've had with any work of fiction under any medium. If we're talking about a manga that maintains its quality throughout then probably Vagabond or Monster.
I'm going to have to give to Shaman King! Fullmetal Alchemist is also very much up there but since I can say that for the anime as well I don't feel the need to say it's my favorite manga. Shaman King the other hand the Manga is so much better than the anime so this answer is specifically for the manga. I always find myself going back and rereading favorite parts and such years after reading it for the first time.
I have read and have quite a good collection of manga that I have ordered over a good period of time. Akira is without question one of the finest manga I have ever read, from the beginning to the very end it was a wonderful journey. Same case with Children of the Sea, which has a beautiful art-style and an intriguing story in which case if you love anything pertaining to the sea is certainly a good read.
Uzumaki was another I had also taken immense enjoyment in reading. Perhaps I should look into getting other manga by Junji Ito. Gyo has been on my wishlist on Booktopia for a good long while now.
Hard to say since I rarely ever read manga. Gekkan shoujo nozaki-kun was a really enjoyable read and I want to catch back up with it since it was a really fun read. RomeoXJuliet, for as dumb as a story it is, was really fun to read as well. I have really fond memories of buying the whole manga as one giant book at the Barnes and Nobles in NYC and reading the whole thing in my hotel bathroom that night because I was totally hooked. And Blue Exorcist has a big place in my heart as an excellent manga because it's one of the only ones I kept up with for a long time and was one of the first anime/manga I ever dipped my toes into.
