More randomness! Whee! Favourite manga?
« on: July 02, 2003, 01:04:31 PM »

I'm bored and I like seeing what people answer to this sort of thing.  And I figure this is free recommendations XD So list your favourite manga!  Whee!~ As for meee...

The WK manga from An Assassin and White Shaman I and II hold a special place for me just because I love the series so much ^^ And good art in the books they come in as well.

Petshop of Horrors by Matsuri Akina.  Dark, disturbing and really beautiful art as well as stories.  Though I may never want to be around a rabbit again...^^;;;

Kaine by Kaori Yuki is also good.  Pretty dark as well, and it deals with music and angst ~.^ Two of my favourite things, baby.

Midare Somenishi by Kazuma Kodaka.  Yaoi.  NC-17 at times.  But for some reason I can't put it down.  Bandits, angst, beautiful men.  Woot!

Love Mode by Yuki Shimizu.  Also yaoi, but of the fluffier sort for the most part.  Wouldn't let a six year old read it XD but it's got more cuteness in it than Midare Somenishi does.  A case of mistaken identities leads to angst, laughter and boy-lovin'.  *hums* These are a few of my faaavourite things.  And that's just in the first book!

Wish by CLAMP.  Aigh, it's so cute.  I picked up volume three just randomly a couple months and got hooked on it.  I want to see a trio cosplay Koryu and his kitty-demon chicks XD

How about youuuu?

I have to admit, I own a total of two issues of manga -.-;; but I enjoy reading anything by CLAMP, so.... anything by CLAMP.

Hey, most of mine is on my computer from a translation site because it's not in English, except for three of the ones up there ^^ So you're alright XD

In no particular order:

Love Hina by Akamatsu Ken: fun, interesting, cute girls, and a very clean and attractive art style.  Oh, and the man is the god of layout as far as I'm concerned.

One Piece by Eniichirou Oda: a simple, but grand and moving tale.  It stirs up such basic emotions such as anger, excitement, and joy, but on a scale most other manga can't even touch.  And the characters are all so cool.  Hands down my favorite traditionally shounen series.

Great Teacher Onizuka by Fujisawa Tohru: Onizuka Eikichi is probably the most inspirational character I've had the pleasure of knowing.  Not only that, he's funny as hell.  A wonderful character-driven series (I happen to like those).

Card Captor Sakura by CLAMP: Sakura is one of my favorite characters of all time and Tomoyo is really up there too.  While the plot wasn't much of a surprise, the characters are what make this series shine.

Video Girl Ai by Katsura Masakazu: if you don't cry while reading this, you're friggin' emotionless.  One of the most moving series I've ever read.

X by CLAMP: Again, characters make the series.  Two of my all-time favorite male characters are in this series: Subaru and Sorata.  Besides them though, every other character is very well fleshed out.  The story is overall a bit bleak, which generally isn't my cup of tea, but it's very compelling anyway.  Besides, it's the pinacle of CLAMP art. ^_^

Hikaru no Go by Hotta Yumi and Obata Takeshi: sure, it's a series about Go, but it's so exciting.  Very addicting.

I suppose that's all I'll list.

Love Hina, CCS, Chobits,  Naruto, Kodocha, GTO

anybody buying tokyopop CCS manga?
I think tokyopop CCS manga quality is not as good as Kodansha CCS bilingual manga. too bad that kodansha only release CCS bilingual manga up to book 5...  :(
is it just me being picky or someone else thinking the same??
And why Tokyopop have to change the original manga cover for Love Hina, CCS and Chobits???  :(
