    I decided to make a manga thread for those who read manga and wanted to recommend it, and to hope others may get into it as well [​IMG] You can thank Extreme Coder for giving me the idea!

    Here are the "Essentials" of GBATemp


    Rules

    You can only vote for a manga series once.
    Don't edit your post when you have a new manga to add, just make another post for less confusion. :???:
    Sorry, no hentai or doujin (fan-made series) in this list.
    Also, if there's a commonly used English name for the series please use it so we don't have the same two or three series listed. If the series is naturally Japanese, then it's fine.
    Please post the full name of the series because I might not know every abbreviation of every manga.
    This is for manga only. Visual novels, fan-made series, and other related genres deserve their own respective lists.
    I will allow minus posts, but only for manga which have 5 or more votes (for a bit of balance). Yet, don't go all-out and try to minus everything on the list.

    You can PM me or post here if you see any errors. I'll update the number of recommendations needed for each series when the list is getting cluttered. [​IMG]

    *Update* Alphabetized the list to find manga easier. If you were looking for a manga in the Others section for instance use CTRL+F or any variation of it and type O (for Other) and the First letter of the manga (i.e. Search "ON." then on the page it would be under Other>N titles). If the manga starts with a number or symbol you would use the first letter of the category then type #$%. (i.e. Search "E#$%." and on the page it would be under Essentials>#$% -meaning symbols- titles). This is highly unneeded but it helps me update faster which is a plus [​IMG]

    I was actually thinking about making this thread, but I guess this way I won't have to bother updating it and such.

    Super special recommendation:
    Parasyte

    I got Xcali to read it and I'm pretty sure he liked it. It's not too long and it's REALLY good! It definitely didn't get the attention it deserved. Be warned though, it's pretty gory.

    Other recommendations:
    Full Metal Alchemist
    Naruto
    Zombie Powder
    Yu-Gi-Oh! (The original one, not the Duelist Kingdom crap or whatever)
    Hunter x Hunter
    Gintama
    Jojo's Bizarre Adventures
    One Piece
    Death Note
    Love Hina
    .hack//Legend of the Twilight (I think that's what it was called)
    Negima

    The three first that i will mention are, well atleast in my opinion, must reads. I have not yet heard anyone of all the people i've recomended these mangas say that they are bad, quite the contrary, almost all of them have loved them.

    Anyways the 3 must read mangas are:

    One Piece

    Fullmetal Alchemist

    GTO (Great Teacher Onizuka)

    The only one you could watch the anime in my opinion is One Piece, but that is only because it's almost exactly like the manga.

    And another good manga but not a "must read" is Berserk. But i must warn you though Berserk is not a manga for the faint of heart xD. ( seriously, i'm not even kidding about that)
