I haven't read very much manga.

Of what I've read, I enjoyed Lone Wolf and Cub the most.

It is pretty old but a classic.

Lone Wolf and Cub

There is even live action movies made about it.

Not really a manga person, but one that I would like to see is Starship Troopers, apparently its more loyal to the novel than any of the other media (very loosely with most of it) based on the novel.

Its old skool being done in 1988 with 6 episode at 25 minutes each.

I had no idea that starship troopers had a manga and here I thought I was an Otaku.

I don't read much manga myself, most of the plots and storylines
are'nt that interesting to me.

But of the few I do read, I'd have to say my favorite is
A.I Love You.

I love Hellsing and Lone Wolf and Cub too.

But my favourite ever has to be GTO or Great Teacher Onizuka it just cracks me up it's so funny.

Lone Wolf and Cub would be a favourite. It's a master work of story telling and illustration. There is still very few that have come close to this level of cinematic action and pacing.

Also Samurai Executioner ...which is by the same legends that created Lone Wolf and Cub. Kazuo Koike and Goseki Kojemi.


Ghost in the Shell was awesome.

I also find myself laughing a lot a Naruto which was good fun.

Battle of the Planets (G Force) also was huge for me when I was a kid.

G-force/Battle of the planets was super fudging cool.

I am really rather fond of Ninja Scroll, just for the end bit where we have the fantastic "Death of a thousand headbutts" a classic momment in childhood.

My current favourite Manga is Kill Me Kiss Me.

It's actually not traditional Japanese Manga, it's actually written by a Korean guy
and has Korean characters in Korea, it is produced by TokyoPop though.

@iori_komei- Korean comics are called "manhwa", just thought I would drop you that tidbit. Alas, "manga" and "manhwa" is just those specific countrys word for comics...so in the end it all means the same thing anyway.

My personal favorite mangas are older stuff, before the japanese artists started drawing the same way as the animations of the time. "Crying Freeman" is a good one if you are into asassin/intrigue type stories(alot of nudity as well as blood and killing). Nausicca (by Hiyao Miazaki),as well as "Domo" and "Akira" (by Katsuhiro Otomo) are also very excellent reads.

I read "Hikaru No Go" too, as i play the game of "go" so it is fun to see in comics.

I also enjoyed Lone Wolf... however, my favorite will always be Baoh. Incredible art, compelling story and far before its time. BTW, I know it's been (poorly) done before, but I would love to see what Ang Lee could do with The Guyver.

When I worked in a bookstore, I was in charge of the manga section. God, i hated working there. Nothing was in logical order, kids would come in and lie down on the coffee stained floor and read while I was shelving...

But I degress...

Usual I hate, hate, HATE american authored manga. Especially when they mimic the right to left format of real manga. But I do have a soft spot for MBQ by Felipe Smith. He doesn't draw in a weeaboo anime style and his stories are terrific. MBQ is very down-to-earth tales of urban living with some great exaggerated characters, like two porn loving hindu brothers, a gangsta who's the devil incarnate, and Jeff, the soft spoken giant who dreams of becoming a rapper.

I can't stress enough on how good MBQ is. GET IT NOW.

I would have to say Bleach. The main characters are entertaining, it has good action and the bad guys are awesome. My favorite characters are Ichigo, Grimmjow, Ulquiorra, Aizen, Gin, Kenpachi, Isshin, Urahara, Shinji and Hiyori. In some Mangas the characters are too young and that sort of annoys me. In Bleach they are basically all older teenagers or adults so the humor, big boobies and other adult stuff blends well.
