    I have started to read manga for awhile now and have ran out of any good mangas.

    If you do read manga what do you read?

    Hunter X Hunter WAS good, but then it became DBZ.
    The first few segments of it are still entertaining.

    Naruto's more decent now than other mangas that have all gone the way of DBZ, it's at least kept to it's core.

    One Piece still has really interesting stories, and is regularly updated. It's more entertaining than I thought it would be at first.

    Claymore is kinda' cool.

    Berserk is gorey and demonic. Also it's got a total shotafairy. XD

    Gantz is... not something I normally recommend, I suggesting reading up on it before you start to read it.

    Definitely Claymore.

    One Piece is real good
    Black Butler is cool
    Hunter X Hunter is okay
    Ubel Blatt is real cool
    Hajime no Ippo's awesome if you like boxing.
    Akumetsu's okay


    I prefer reading manga over anime, but somtimes, you'll get two different stories from both.

    Yes, I do. A lot. More than I should, actually.

    The ones I'm reading lately:

    -In paper- (That means I'm actually buying them)
    Mahou Sensei Negima
    Berserk
    Fullmetal Aclhemist
    Ranma 1/2
    xxx Holic
    Tsubasa: Resvoir Chronicles (Holic and this one are kind of linked)
    Full Metal Panic Sigma
    Hunter x Hunter

    -Digital- (That means I'm downloading them)
    Naruto (you know, it was cool at the begining, but them it got really boring... Now it's so-so)
    Gantz
    DNAngel
    Medaka Box
    Seikon no Qweiser
    Shamo
    High School of the Dead
    Change 123
    Ashita no Yoichi
    and some more.

    I've finished reading a lot more, and this are the ones I recommend:
    Love Hina
    DNA²
    Yu Yu Hakusho
    Rurouni Kenshin (AKA Samurai X)
    Angel Sanctuary
    Godchild (and it's "prequel" Count Cain)
    Chobits
    Magic Knight Rayearth
    Angelic Layer

    There are more, but some are restricted to underages and I don't want to post another wall of text >-p

    I've got the Valkyrie Profile one on my Cyclo, but I'm beginning to wonder whether it's just wasted space 'cause I never really got in to this sort of thing.

    Funny story about this sort of thing though. When we got our first decent computer, my old man was cruising the torrent sites and saw a file named 'Final Fantasy Encyclopedia' which he thought I might like so he downloaded it. Turns out he missed a key word in the description. That word being 'hentai'. That's right. My 56 year old dad inadvertantly downloaded over 100 folders of Final Fantasy based cartoon porn. The alarm bells started ringing when we were checking whether the disk had written properly and the folder name 'cock and lockheart' showed up on screen...

    Sold the disk to my friend Kai, so at least I made some money out of it.

    Tsubasa: Resvoir Chronicles is indeed a great manga.
    You should definitely read it (if you haven't yet).
    The start is not that good, but if you keep reading, it gets amazing.
    It's a shame that the anime didn't follow the manga right before it ended (made up episodes), and only then, followed it by making a few OVA's - which hardly covered the great story, and also made many people confused.
    You should read it, and then watch the OVAs - as they were just fantastic.

    Another great one, which I really enjoyed (and still do) is Hayate no Gotoku (hence my avatar).
    The anime was quite enjoyable - 1st season didn't follow the manga, while the 2nd one did,
    but the story does continue in the manga (though there will most likely be another season).

    I'm reading/I've read :

    - Ubelblatt, not bad, but it's pretty serious. I mean, that's not a 'casual' manga, some manga you can read one tome then drop it.

    - Rave Master, completely crazy. Basical shônen with a lot of fun.
    - Fairy Tail, same as Rave Master (same author) but without scenario. Fun and refreshing if you're looking for a time killer.
    - Jackals, some violent manga about bounty hunters. There are only 7 tomes, and the scenario is pretty simple. Not so bad, but not that good either.
    - Island, a korean manga (manhwa). The first (and only) manhwa I've read. Very good scenario, but it seems that the author did not finish the manhwa.
    - Tokkô, by GTO's creator. Nice manga but again, the author dropped it after 3 tomes.
    - Get Backers, pretty simple at the beginning, but it hides a deep story. One of my favourite.

    Then some classicals like Bleach, Naruto, Rurôni Kenshin, Gunnm, GTO, Hikaru no Go, Chobits,...

    I read
    - One Piece because its great
    - Naruto because I want too finish it
    - Bleach for the lulz (it's soo dumb and boring now
    - Bakuman because it's interesting

    one of my all time favourites would be

    - Rabbit Doubt (or Doubt) they have a sequel coming out

    Was way to cheezy for me, comedy relief parts, and didnt like the the fact that the author kept changing the attack names for no reason annoyed me also facial expression during first half and parts of second half was really ugly
