Yesterday night I've gone to the bookstore to get myself a few more books to keep my busy (Eid Vacation).
I went over to the Young Adult section (I'm not 13 yet yeah I'm pretty young but love reading) and then went under the Manga section.
So well I opened a few books and noticed they go from right to left... What the heck? xD All of them were that way, not just one title. I guess that's how Manga should be.
Anyway, I opened a few Manga's and read a few pages from each. They seemed like crap, then one caught my attention. The title was "Psycho Busters" part 1. I bought it late last night. I came back home at 10. I showered, brushed my teeth, ate and etc.. And slept at 11 (leaving me only a few minutes to read) and well I woke up today and immediately started reading and before I knew it, I finished the WHOLE book. It was very enjoyable and I look forward to reading the continuations of that title.
So, anyone read Psycho Busters?
And uhh... Which Manga titles are YOU reading these days?

By the way, if you happen to be interested in Psycho Busters, check it out here.
Oh yeah, I don't think Psycho Busters has an official website or anything so yeah.

Yeah, right to left, it's how Japanese literature works. Originally when brought to the US things were simply flipped, but that can cause issues with directions (and markings on certain sides of the body and such), and purists bitch, so now it's pretty much all right to left.

That series looks interesting.

They do that 'cos otherwise, the images'd be the wrong way round, or it's look odd in other ways, as it's originally written right-left.
I've heard of Psycho Busters

I think it's had pretty decent reviews.

The manga I'm reading.
Dammit, Rydian beat me :3

Ahh, should have known.

I don't know about the whole series, but honestly part 1 was amazing. I'd say, second best on the list of ALL books I've read (not just manga).
Very good one.

Yup, Rydian got you.
I'll check that "Fairy Tale" one you're reading since it has a pretty high rating.
And that "Angel Sanctuary" one as well

I don't know why I didn't start reading manga years ago.

I read Bleach till volume 30, then lost interest in the story.
I pretty much only read Gantz and Zelda nowadays.

Well, I Wikipedia'd Bleach and it sounds like a pretty good title. I should maybe start.
Not too sure if I'm correct, but I google'd the Zelda manga titles and apparently for some reason I think they're too childish? =/
Honestly though, if that IS what you read, I'm not looking at it from your point of view. In other words, I wouldn't read those

I couldn't get a good look and Gantz but it doesn't sound bad to me...
Wow.. I never knew so many people on here read Manga.

Be warned that many manga have 30+ volumes.

You should say what genre do you prefer (you can base it on anime if you watch them) because there are a lot of them around, so we can suggest you some titles. ^^

Ah I'm reading it atm (currently I'm at vol 21). Great manga!
Still don't get why they stopped publishing it in Italy at vol 18, it's even talking about Italian Mafia (at least the name lol).

Bleach = First arc is fun, after that it's meh.
Zelda = Kinda simple, but not really that childish. They're good if you're too lazy to play through the games like me, but still wanna know what the story's about.
Gantz = Titties and exploding bodies, so I wouldn't recommend it for someone your age, but if you wanna read it anyway, it's not my fault if your parents catch you

EDIT: Another recommendation, if you like to keep to the original story, just read the manga, and don't watch the anime (except in wolf's rain's case.)

Dude, just one tip, read Shaman King. It's the best manga I've ever read (I read 100+ series). Listen to me, I was around 11/12 when I started it (I'm 14 now) and I still really enjoy reading it over and over again (I read the whole series for about 10 times now). If you are interested, here's the Wikipedia page:

WikiPedia (German)

Please read the masterpiece and tell me what you think about it. Oh, and btw, the last volume (volume 32) just released in Germany

No offense, but I think he knows what you want him to read by now XD
Also @ OP: Read Detroit Metal City if you like metal and humor.
Yeah I know

But I really really really want people to read the series
