Top Ten Best Manga Ever

The Top Ten Best Manga Ever

1 One Piece

I have read some great manga including naruto and bleach, but this anime is just so good. The story, character, plot and everything about this anime is awesome. Oda is so much brilliant! ONE PIECE FOREVER!

I really love this manga... It makes my heart flutter... It can make me laugh and cry at the same time.. The story is amazing... All are connected to the main characters.. Eichiro Oda is the BEST!

A long story manga with a single group leading character, best fighting, best twist, best art, best storytelling, best adventure theme, make every reader cry-laugh-angry-and touching in the deepest of heart...

The best manga I've ever read.

It's the only manga that can keep me waiting impatiently to the next chapter, that can make me so thrilled so emotional at whatever happens in the story. I'm so happy I gave it a try despite the fact I was so reluctant, and unwilling to read it because the art seemed too odd.

The One Piece universe is a universe which endlessly keep on expanding and present new possibilities, new characters and new developments - this in itself can present a problem which is having the author suddenly give an answer to a problem in the series but it's not like that, in one piece it doesn't feel like Oda just made up something in order to solve a problem - it either feels like it was planned from the beginning or it doesn't feel to farfetched.

One of the things I love the most about One Piece is that a detail which seems so small and so minor might be a really big hint that foreshadows the events to come but usually you won't notice it the first time ...more - NewWorld

2 Fullmetal Alchemist Fullmetal Alchemist is an anime series adapted from the manga of the same name by Hiromu Arakawa. It is about two brothers, Edward Elric and Alphonse Elric, trying to restore their bodies after failing at bringing their mother back to life. It aired in 2003 and was remade as Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood more.

Fullmetal Alchemist's characters are AMAZING. So is its plot. And it's art. Or maybe I'm just too obsessed with it" READ IT!

Full Metal Alchemist is very interesting and they are very brave characters, even when they took the risk of trying to bring their mother back.

Full Metal Alchemist is a fascinating anime. I am the biggest fan of it since it's first series.

The best manga ever! The plot is so intricate and well thought out. I loved it.

3 Naruto

Naruto is the best!
I really like the "never-give-up" attitude of his

These manga is the only one which makes you feel all kinds of emotions... Laugh, cry, angry, sad, depress, happy, etc... Naruto is the best Ever!

I understand you liked it, but have you ever read any other manga? It's not the only one that makes you feel like that.

Out of the other manga/anime Naruto is My ultimate favorite not just because of the cool ninja techniques and how awesomely cool it is to walk on water, but its because of Naruto's personality the way how he doesn't give up and that he works hard for others to appreciate him not for money or fame and that is the most pure thing that I love about Naruto!

Naruto isn't treasured by a thousand people just because of his strength, that is madly WRONG! Many people can't see it, but I do. T isn't the fighting the only reason that makes you watch that manga, it's the atmosphere. The romance, the laughter, the sadness and undeniable anger is the reason, it shows you all your feelings deep inside your soul, from the bottom of your heart. My country isn't much, not much things that we can brag about, and my school friends crazily adore Naruto just because of skill, and when I want to tell them that more valuable isn't his skill, but his amazing lion spirit that never gave up, that what truly made us smile. But seeing all that hope, inspiring shine on my friends eyes makes Me understand that they treasure they're version. So, for now that's all I have to say. Ananomus

4 Dragon Ball

Dragon ball is the first series but the second series of dragon ball (dragonball z) is the best ever it's awesome anime in the world and we can't compare dragon ball z with others because it has the best storyline and most action packed and adventurous anime. It's number 1 anime created in the world ever.

Just plain badass the "greatest battle manga in the world" it even says it on the first page

I absolutely love this manga. Akira Toriyama is an absolute genius. There are long complex arc always topped off by fantastic fight scenes, you have to like this manga!

Wow, it's honestly pathetic that Naruto can be ranked higher than this classic piece of work. Masashi Kishimoto himself has stated that he viewed Akira Toriyama as his inspiration. Naruto is too damn long for it's own good. It's tried so hard to reach to a wide audience that it has transformed from a manga/anime which did utilize the "never give up" aspect of life into a drama! Seriously and Bleach? Are you kidding me? I can understand Death Note because of the whole mental concept of the manga and One Piece because it appeals to a wide audience without needing to be a soap opera but seriously, what the hell is Naruto and Bleach doing here? Anybody that seriously thinks that Naruto is the best manga of all time is obviously a 12 year old that has never watched any other anime or picked up any other manga. Wow, over a class like Dragon Ball... Hell Detective Conan and even YU YU HAKUSHO IS BETTER. Fanboys these days, really...

5 Berserk Berserk, also known as Sword-Wind Chronicle Berserk, is a Japanese anime television series that aired from 1997 to 1998. An adaptation of the manga Berserk, it comprises 25 half-hour episodes produced by Oriental Light and Magic and first aired on Nippon TV.

Most people have no taste is literature or deep story line that's why berserk is so low on this list. Berserk is easily the best manga ever made

Berserk has the best art, the best story, and the best characters in any manga I have ever read. Berserk gets a 5/5 from me.

can't be matched.
the greatest manga ever.

I am not shocked to see that Berserk isn't number 1 because in terms of popularity, One Piece and everything else above Berserk is more popular and have been read by most people. I now give advise to you all who haven't read Berserk... READ IT! You will see why this is considered by many and most critics to be the greatest manga ever created. This manga is so brilliant in story telling, writing, characters, art, and pacing that it could also be considered one of the greatest fiction works of all time. The dialogue is breath taking, and the chemistry between the characters so believable and touching that it eventually builds up to what is probably the most horrific betrayal scene ever written or drawn on paper. I've read it so many times and it still sends shivers down my spine. If you like manga, you owe it to yourself to read this masterpiece. An experience you will never forget. - metalmaiden

6 Bleach Bleach is a Japanese anime series based on Tite Kubo's manga of the same name. Bleach adapts the first 54 volumes of Tite Kubo's manga series of the same name. In addition, 4 anime-original arcs were broadcast in-between and during the adaptations of original arcs of the manga. more.

Bleach was the top second manga series in the world for the longest time as legendary #1Naruto and #3One Piece. The Big Three. Or even hailed as the "Holy Shonen Trinity. " Bleach had a wonderful heart-gripping return as Rukia just as in the first beginning chapter gave him shinigami powers. He returns with his shinigami robes and a brand new Zangetsu (what a thing to look forward to! ). Who knows what hollow ichigo and zangetsu look now, and the epic huge getsuga tenshou for the first time in ages! How is that for a comeback! Another thing I think we should look at is what Ichigo's mask will look like now, and what his new hollow powers will hold. Is he going to join the ranks of a Vizard and gain the ability to produce his Ceros? The wonderful reality and possibilities are endless and what if Rukia finally achieves Bankai! And will Kenpachi finally see his zanpakuto...?
Let's return Bleach to it's rightful place as the top three.
And... What will happen finally, ...more

Bleach never was the top second manga in the world. One Piece is #1, then with a huge margin comes Naruto and finally Bleach which is even further away when it comes to sales and popularity. - Cloudskipper

The anime died from filler arcs but I still really love the manga~ Maybe it's the characters but I love how the emotional stuff are mainly kept close to reality (like, nothing too dramatic) and it's full of twists and turns that you wouldn't expect~ Ichigo might be a little too powerful, but he works for it so it doesn't bother me too much.

Honestly bleach is was better than most mangas the plot of the whole is compelling and makes me want to watch more.
can't wait for bleach:hell chapter.

Most people play favorites on voting so bleach here is down but on all on going manga, I do think that bleach the best. Well, people have different tastes, but I say that bleach's story is much deeper than Naruto's or one piece's that's why most people can't get the full essence of its story. I'm not over rating it but it's the truth. Although my favorite is bleach, but I can't deny that Naruto is still the first because it's well balance. Naruto's story isn't hard to cope up with and it's interesting. While bleach's story, as I said earlier is more for an adult and people might find it hard to cope up with. But if you are able to get its essence then you'll find it as the best on going manga (only applicable if you prefer uniformly organized structure of literature).. Third is one piece, because if you are an adventure lover, you'll like it. But because of its childish plot/story you can even skip a few hundreds of episodes/chapters and still cope up with the story... Well, it's not ...more

Oh and that you supposedly can skip "hundreds of chapters/episodes" of One Piece is just a straight up lie. Every single arc in One Piece introduces something that is important to the story be it characters, lore or world changing events that influence the overarching plot. Even something that got introduced in chapter 155 can be suddenly very important even 500 chapters later. Naruto and Bleach (and most other series in general) can not even slightly compare! - Cloudskipper

7 Death Note Death Note is a Japanese television drama series based on the manga series of the same name by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata. The show is centered around Light Yagami - a promising highschooler and aspiring detective with a strong sense of "justice".

L. Lawliett V.S. yagami Light! Really different from the usual fighting mangas, this psychological duel it really draws you in!

Should be number 1 for manga quality!
The others are only in front of it because they are mainstream...

Clearly by 'mainstream' you mean well-known or famous, so why do you think they are well-known and famous? It's because they are great manga that have gained popularity for being so great. Granted, Death Note is fantastic, but in my opinion it is in its worthy place on this list. Your opinions are not facts, so please don't act like they are.

This manga gave us the two best characters manga/anime could ever have...L... And Light...!

With a different style from the others, I think this manga is one of the best I've ever read and seen. It's a mental battle, and it seems like a chess game sometimes. I love it

8 Fairy Tail Fairy Tail is a manga franchise created by Hiro Mashima. The manga has been adapted into an anime series produced by A-1 Pictures and Satelight, which began broadcasting in Japan on October 12, 2009. Additionally, A-1 Pictures and Satelight have developed seven original video animations and an animated more.

How the hell is this down here, this manga would be in my top five. The art work is amazing and so is the story. Its much better than rave master, the authors previous series.

LOL I am honestly amazed that Fairy Tail AND Bleach are so far up on this list. Both series are extremely mediocre at best and sometimes just flat out horrible. The writing in Fairy Tail is so bad sometimes and the "power of friendship solves everything"-trope gets really out of hand. - Cloudskipper

This manga is just amazing, in my opinion they have perfected the combination of Naruto and DBZ. Action and emotions on every episode. Genius work and keep on doing it.

This manga is far too good with the story and the characters to not even be close to top 5

This is too good to not be above naruto

The thing is, Fairy Tail shares importance in life, friendship, and love. It's not just a stupid "power of friendship" thing. It shows the IMPORTANCE of friends and what they do. characters like Natsu, Lucy, Gray, Juvia, Wendy, Erza, Gageel, and the Fairy Tail guild show that they protect each other. My favorite part was when Natsu wanted to kill Jellal for making Erza cry. But accepted him when he actually changed. That's what friends do, protect, accept, and care. Fairy Tail was so, so meaningful. It really changed my life to be honest.

9 Dragon Ball Z

When I saw the sheer volume of its issues, I had thought that I had needs year to be done with it and now here I am with the entire manga completed in less than one month
Absolutely fantastic, for a long time I was quite going through the Hangover if having finished it and couldn't pick up any manga. Absolutely fab.. DBZ and DB both are love, even though I had to vote dbz here.

Dragon Ball Z is the best manga. It is so much better than it's anime adaption which has to many fillers.
There a a lot of timeskips but they play them by so smoothly. Freiza saga was way better than the anime it was much shorter and incredibly told. The anime version of the Frieza saga sucked it spanned from episodes 87 to 107 and the "five minute fight" is TEN EPISODES LONG.

What the heck is this doing here?
It should be in the top 10

There is no Dragon Ball Z manga, Dragon Ball Z is based off the Dragon Ball manga which is in the top ten - 9713524179

Are you kidding me
It should be at 1

10 Hunter x Hunter Hunter × Hunter is a manga franchise created by Yoshihiro Togashi. In 1999, Hunter × Hunter was adapted into a 62-episode anime television series produced by Nippon Animation and directed by Kazuhiro Furuhashi. The show premiered on Japan's Fuji TV and ran until 2001. Three separate original video more.

Why is Hunter x Hunter here? It must be in the top ten! I LOVE the characters, their personal problems and lives (the friendship between Gon and Killua is amazing, really), the themes and the fights... Everything is AMAZING! It keeps me glued to the pages! The mangaka made a brilliant work, I hope it will gain success!

Hunter x Hunter is the prime example of how action/adventure shonen manga should be. The characters, the plot, the landscapes, the tension, EVERYTHING is a joy to follow and explore. Forget Naruto, Bleach, One piece and Fairy Tail. This is what action/adventure fans are looking for!

"Forget One Piece"? Sorry my friend, but even though Hunter x Hunter is a good shounen it does not really hold a candle to One Piece. Especially when it comes to world building and long-term storytelling One Piece is far superior. - Cloudskipper

I first saw the anime and loved the logic of the characters way to deal with hunters test and after, when they learned how to use nem, it's awesome to see how Gon gets stronger and helps everyone he mets while trying to find his father. After the last anime episode in treasure island, I had to see if he met Gin, I found the manga and its 10 times cooler and more bloody! Maybe not the best Manga in the world, but it's my top 3.

The 2011 anime made this my favorite anime by a mile and a half! The only downside is the long hiatuses.

The Contenders

11 D. Gray-Man D.Gray-man (Japanese: ディー・グレイマン Hepburn: Dī Gureiman?) is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Katsura Hoshino. Set in the 19th century, the series tells the story of a boy named Allen Walker, a member of an organization of exorcists who make use of an ancient substance more.

This manga is so awesome! The story and artwork are just amazing. The story actually makes you want to read more. There is only one problem with DGM... It takes a whole month just for a new chapter to be released, but apart from that, the manga is amazing. One of the best ones out there.

I think the plot is very interesting and getting more interesting as it advances. The plot twists around quite often but never in the direction you were expecting. Not to mention the lovely art and the awesome and exciting moments too

This manga is one of my best anime that I have ever watch I downloaded season 1-2 and a little part of season 3 (12 EPISODES) and search the other episode but could not find it but to be truthful this anime is greath.

This manga is honestly one of the best I've ever read. Although at the start it may seem a little innocent and not that serious, things get VERY dark. I think it is amazing how the plot evolved, and how the characters adapt to difficult situations. Also something that I really like is how all of the characters are very deep in their own ways and show many sides throughout the manga. The art style is also beautiful, especially in the more recent chapters.

12 Slam Dunk

best art, realistic plot, a manga where all athletes would relate to. This is one of the best sports manga of all time.

This is my favourite manga above all. I'm not saying the others have nothing to do, but for me it's simpy the one which has make me cry, laugh and feel the emotion between every match while I was reading and watching it. Not only that but also the art is amazing, realistic but refreshing, you can see in their faces what they feel, simply too expressive. Now and then I think I'm becoming more of a 90's manga lover than nothing, there're good mangas now, but in that decade there were very good ones.

It's not strange is one of the most beloved manga in shonen jump and all Japan, sure it's... For me is a masterpiece.

Seriously this manga is the best ever I don't know why its not at the top of the list I guess that it was only a huge hit in Japan everything about this manga is good the story the art the characters I mean it has everything action drama love and its funny so vote for this manga

This manga single handedly increased the popularity of basketball in Japan! Also the story is well told and the art is amazing; both the art and story have amazing chemistry. This manga actually might be top 5 all time...

13 Vagabond

reading this series is like an addiction, you just can't stop no how much you want to.
if you are planning on reading this manga I would recommend getting the viz big editions, you will end up saving money if you get them off amazon and the reading experience is much better. you get the bigger artwork and the volumes are 3 in 1 perfect for a long read. honestly, I am sad that this manga is so low on this list I do think its easily top 3 out of the list along with one piece and berserk, and I think if vagabond had an anime it would be more well-known and I think it would be number 1

Takehiko Inoue blew me away, I thought Slam Dunk was good but Vagabond is Godly!

Vagabond is the most amazing manga I have ever read. (And I've read them all! )
For me, the two things that matter the most is artwork and character development and depth. In mangas like bleach or Naruto, the characters are very one dimensional and predictable. The reason is of course because these manga are aimed at a younger audience. But vagabond blew me away. I finished reading the last update and then a few months later I read the first few chapters again. AND I COULD NOT RECOGNIZE THE GUY! In those 300 chapters, the hero's character had changed so much, and it felt so natural while it was happening! But it was unbelievable. What a moment. What a manga!
It is the only manga where two people can just stand and stare at each other without a word for two whole chapters, and just the thoughts going on in their heads are so riveting! I love this manga man! Vagabond is the best!

This story is very fun to read, it has romance, fighting, realizations, and it is very exciting from start to finish. The art is insane and the story draws you in from start to finish.

14 InuYasha InuYasha is a manga franchise created by Rumiko Takahashi. It was adapted into two anime television series produced by Sunrise. The first was broadcast for 167 episodes on Yomiuri TV in Japan from October 16, 2000 until September 13, 2004. The second series, called Inuyasha: The Final Act, began airing more.

The plot is ironic in real life. Kikyo is somebody's past inuyasha represents as a choice of the possible futures you may have, and kagome reflects you, the reader. The story is very deep. You wont understand it unless you think outside the box.

I don't see how you could not like this manga, the plot it wonderful, the characters are diverse and have epic backgrounds, the feudal period is demonstrated very well, the art is quite quite good and from the first chapter I've been completely hooked

The story has many level to it.. It's just not another love revenge story.. It's the best anime and the best manga ever.. It deserves to be in the top ten list..

Ahh... InuYasha, my obsession of six years! It may focus a lot on romance but the characters are very unique and are bursting with potential! The plot can drag on a lot (Naraku I'm looking at you! ) and Kagomes personality would drive a lot of males away from the show- as she strays from the every day shounen main girl characters. InuYasha fights in almost every episode/chapter but tends to rely on only a hand full of attacks. But he makes up for that with quite a bit of personality.

Although there are MANY flaws in this story from Miroku and Sango being the narrators of Almost EVERY battle. (Sango: "did InuYashas wind scar just bounce back at him!? " Miroku: "yes! It seems the foe has a barrier that reflects demonic attacks! " Shippo: "I still exist! " Kind of a thing.)

It is without a doubt a mostly girl fan base (but males DO know quite a bit about it.)

My best advice is to try it and take it as you go, not everyone will see the charm but the ones who do won't ...more

15 Jojo's Bizarre Adventures Jojo's Bizarre Adventure is an anime and manga franchise originally written by Hirohiko Araki. It centers around the perilous journey of the members of the legendary Joestar bloodline.

JoJo is just amazing, It's hard to get bored of this series, each parts always have a lot of new characters and most of the parts have the perfect lenght, So you will almost never got bored of this series

Oh god the greatest thing ever created nothing can even come close to JoJo

My favourite anime of all time and in my top 10 manga of all time. It's just so good

It's not just about vampires, but ancient super-beings, a serial killer, Italian gangs, prison life, a transcontinental horse race, and amnesia. With eight separate protagonists and changing casts, stories and themes fail to stagnate over the 121 volumes of JoJo-awesomeness, especially with fights from part 3 onward having the supernatural power of Stands. Being physical manifestations of your soul, Stands are an iconic power system where each user has a unique ability, forcing our protagonists to use their minds instead of their fists to defeat the enemy, entailing inventive and creative resolves to bizarre battles and circumstances. JoJo's Bizarre Adventure is one of the most beautiful and fabulous artworks I've seen and is an essential read for all manga lovers.

16 Monster

This is highly underrated. Give this masterpiece more recognition!

Should I say anything? It's a wonderful underrated masterpiece

Extremely underrated. My Top 5 of all time and I read a lot of manga, including Arigatou, Berzerk, 20th cb, homunculus. This one left the hardest impression on me. every chapter unfolds stories and the best twists. Loved the ending

The fact that this story isn't in the top ten is an absolute shame. Monster is a story that will wow you on many levels. Urasawa manages to craft a magnificent story that makes you think, it will shock you, you will be so involved, you will love it from maybe the first few chapters alone.

17 Hajime No Ippo

I would put Hajime as one of the underrated mainstream manga. I dislike manga with simple cliche plots. This is the only one I felt is the best "boy to hero" manga out there.

Might be better than Slam Dunk and that means a lot. Hajime no Ippo is my favourite sports manga of all time!

As this Manga has over 900 chapters one can say it's simply good because it was never cancelled. That has to mean something. Furthermore the story of the weak Ippo keeps you reading until you want to know what happen, until you are enlightend by Ippo's trainers words: Off to the world, brat.

This manga has turned this lady into a boxing fan. It has a great blend of humor, friendship and love mixed in with some challenges. It's a must read for any sports fan!

18 One-Punch Man

Well, in the end good wins almost every time against evil! ( Naruto, death note,m m arc, dragon Ball) Just thinking to invent a manga based around that, and just with one punch is absurd and iconic.
One punch man is just a geniality! For many aspects, much better than any action/fighting manga as it easily end up with just a punch :)
Manga is entertaining and amazing! Absolutely top 10

Best action, comedy, heroic, twisty, psychological, character developing manga.

It's cheating.
One piece came in this list before 3 years
AOT came in this list before 6 months
While one punch man came in this list within 25 days.
If every manga in this list is released on same date, OPM is surely in top 8
Don't forget that OPM has more fans in central America than one piece and naruto.

How is it "cheating" exactly? It is natural that series that are older than One Punch man were added much earlier. Stop being such a whiney fanboy! - Cloudskipper

great art style, story is funny. my guilty pleasure manga. Simple plot, generally empty sugar without nutritional content manga, but everyone just love it.

19 Parasyte The anime was simulcast by Crunchyroll outside of Asia. Aside from the manga and anime, the series also has two live-action film adaptations. The Chinese Ministry of Culture blacklisted Kiseijuu: Sei no Kakuritsu as well as 37 other works on June 9, 2015. more.

Creepy science fiction story similar to Invasion of the Body Snatchers. This thriller will not let you go until the very end.

I'm surprised Parasyte is all the way down here! This is one of my favorite manga, and had me on the edge of my seat as much as laughing my way off of it! I recommend it to all Tokyo Ghoul fans(and if you haven't read Tokyo Ghoul, I highly recommend that too)!

It's a great psychological horror


20 Tokyo Ghoul Tokyo Ghoul is a Japanese dark fantasy manga series written and illustrated by Sui Ishida. It was serialized in Shueisha's seinen manga magazine Weekly Young Jump between September 2011 and September 2014, and it has been collected in fourteen tankōbon volumes as of August 2014.

I have read a lot of different manga from Bleach(700+ chapters) to dead man wonderland. I am never not reading a manga. The point I am trying to make is that I have read many different series and Tokyo Ghoul is by far the best manga that I have ever read! It draws you in so hard and leaves you wanting more! You can never put it down!

I use an app to read my manga but I actually want to buy the series(TG and TG :re) just to collect them! I want stickers for my car, my laptop, a hoodie, a phone cover, etc. I just want to surround myself with TG merchandise! Not just any merchandise though, it has to be touka and Kaneki merch!

The series let's you follow along with their character development and their relationship development. You want... You need them to be together and it's all you hope for! SPOILER... Then they get married and have a kid. The whole time you think and feel like one of and or both of them are going to die but they don't. It's a happy ever after while ...more

How is this not higher? This has the perfect balance of darkness and beauty (and plenty of sadness, may I add). I loved and still do love all of the characters. They all seem so unique to me! However, try your best to avoid spoilers. It may ruin the experience. Try to read the manga before watching the anime, too. The anime doesn't follow the same storyline as the manga, which disappointed me. But, the anime is still worth it. After you finish the main series, I recommend reading :re. Don't do much research on :re before finishing the entire manga, though. I learned the hard way. In summary, give this manga a chance! It is absolutely worth reading.

If u have watched the anime and think its amazing... Well, then behold! The MANGA IS SO AMAZING! It's the best manga I have read that shows how the main character goes through a psychological change. Plus it's beautifully displayed that tells about human eating creatures(ghouls- not naked titans ) that tells about how they interact with the humans. My fave line in the manga is that the main lead ghoul female character says that they aka ghouls only want to live because there is no way of their survival unless they eat humans... ANYWAYS BE SURE TO READ THE MANGA! ' Even if it has a slow start, DON'T STOP READING!

Why is Tokyo Ghoul down here?!?!?! This manga clearly deserves to be in a much much higher rank in the top 5 at least. The plot is so good that I guarantee. I just wanted to read a few chapter at first, but then it got addicting and then suddenly I can't stop reading and I couldn't help but feel annoyed if I can't read at least one chapter a day or five!

21 Yu Yu Hakusho Yu Yu Hakusho is a manga franchise created by Yoshihiro Togashi. An anime adaptation consisting of 112 television episodes was directed by Noriyuki Abe and co-produced by Fuji Television, Yomiko Advertising, and Studio Pierrot. The television series originally aired on Japan's Fuji TV network from October more.

The artwork was great in this story! Not only that, it gave us suspence and humor, as well as seriousness and a romantic relationship. The plot was original as well as the character design. - Velilana

If u are looking for spirit world along with human world in comedy and action.This is what u r looking for.

I think this anime is an all time classic, I mean really 36, it deserves way better. The characters are wonderful, the romance, the fightinh even the plot line is quite impressive, besides this came out way before bleach, Naruto etc and should be given more credit than 36.

Yu Yu Hakusho is epic! The storyline, characters, and artwork are the best. I LOVE the main characters, their fighting styles, and personalities so much! I loved the way the suspense, romance, and humor really got to me. I could go on forever with a list of what I like about this series. The only thing I didn't like was finishing a page and realizing that it was over. T^T

22 Great Teacher Onizuka Great Teacher Onizuka, officially abbreviated as GTO, is a Japanese shōnen manga written and illustrated by Tooru Fujisawa. It was originally serialized in Weekly Shōnen Magazine from May 1997 to April 2002.

Yeah! this manga is like the best manga I've ever read :D
it's funny and the storyline isn't boring
Onizuka taught his students with different ways and I mean really different!

A large cast of characters and still, each of them are kept active and interesting throughout the episodes

For me GTO is the best manga I've ever read because it gives us a very strong message: Whoever you are, whatever your age, no matter what you have experienced, you can change, you can be happy.
The main character: Eikichi Onizuka is in my opinion very interesting because we know he has struggled, we see his evolution. He help and inspire others people. This is a very charismatic person.

Sory for my bad English I'm French

This manga has been a long time favorite! Nothings beaten it yet the characters feel like they come to life, I felt so sad when it ended. Great run! I wish I could find another just like this one in the future

23 Attack on Titan

I'd stay sleepless with no food to watch the entire series. There's a lot of bloody scenes in there which I still recommend you even though you might be some of those creepy-pasta coward. It gives you a lot of experiences and I think that it's also very emotional.

(More like Attack on Feelings)

Most of my friends who watch Shingeki no Kyojin cried on the first episode. FIRST. EPISODE. Now I don't know about you but for me, I'm a cold heart lizard when I heard my friends crying on the first episode but they still watch it and even read the manga. I didn't actually cry until the 20th or 20 something episode where (SPOILER ALERT) they throw the bodies of their dead comrades. One drop... I'm such a cold hearted person.

It's very realistic how the characters act even though they only exist in the fictional world. There's a lot of feelings put into it, and there's this intense sense of fear in the story line which just makes me love it more. Most of the time when mangas ...more

This is probably the one best manga/anime I have ever read/watched. After hearing from my best friend that this anime/manga series was die-hard epic, I decided to give it a try...

I stayed until 5 in the morning after one episode of this series.

It's full of emotion that makes you feel the same way as they do; Tears were already coming out in episode ONE. It made me sob during the last half of episode 5. I cried the whole entire of episode 6.

It was heart-wrenching, but so realistic in terms of how people felt and their fears. I mean, not everyone is perfect in our world and Shingeki no Kyojin mirrored the true personalities of people in this manga/anime. Eren wasn't a perfect person, who was always trying to push and push -- He cried, he was scared, he bled, and he acknowledged people -- But, his character was truly amazing. All the characters were so... Human -- None of them had that perfect personality or perfect knowledge or strength... (Execpt for Mikasa, but ...more

just amazing the plot gets weird in season 2 but its amazing READ IT!

19th rank?! Must read till the end to understand how great of a genius this author is. The twist and turns will leave you baffled and you'll be craving for more understanding of this world.
Definitely doesn't deserve to be in the 19th rank, it should be in the top 10!

24 Akira

First one that I saw! And still one of the best!
Akira is a film that surpasses all other anime, and is one of- if not the best animated film of all time, Akira has earned it's landmark as a break through milestone animated, The One thing about Akira is it is not for children Akira isn't gory but contains many bloody scenes as well as some strong language and a scene of partial nudity, other than that Akira is an excellent film.

Most Gratifying Read Ever. So much more depth than the animated version. I had the opportunity to read it all.

Seriously, how the hell is this masterpiece so low?! The fact that it isn't even in the top tens shows that there is something wrong with people. In here people either haven't read this manga, or fanboy over things like fairy tail (that it sucks and it's unbelievable thta it is top 5). This needs to be HIGHER! - fersosar2001

Best of all time no more needs saying

25 20th Century Boys

It's a shame that 20th Century Boys wasn't even mentioned in the list.

Naoki Urasawa is one of the best mangakas of all time.

It's a masterpiece. I went to the manga store in my town and had no clue what to read. I asked for advice and he mentioned 20th century boys. To be honest, I didn't want to buy it. He said buy the first volume if you didn't like it come and change it with anything you want. I went home and started reading and never stopped till I finish the first volume. then the day after I went to the shop and bought all the volumes.

This was just a manga I thought had quite a few chapters so it could pass time. I started reading it with the mentality that it would pass time and that I would move on to something else afterwards. I know it is a bit older, and action-wise, it's no Naruto. You should still READ IT because of the plot. I personally hate mangas and animes that come out these days that are only about how good the graphics are and where the plot is awful. They don't make 'em like 20th Century Boys anymore. Sorry for the wall of text I had to get it out.

just the first chapter and I am hooked. could get in my top 5 list very soon.

26 The Breaker: New Waves

He breaker caught my eye about a month ago, beautiful art, complex storyline, complex character development and a great twist at the end. New waves continues where the breaker left off, with all of the above aspects. An absolute must read for action manga fans.
It's storyline is complex yet easy to follow, with emotions abound. You get attached to multiple characters as you see their continued progression and development.

Truly a work of art.

If you are looking for the action New Waves got it.
If you are looking for how a boy grows to a man New Waves got it.
If you are looking for a story with fighting and a epic storyline New Waves is what you are looking for.

The only bad thind with New Waves is that you have to read The Breaker first to understand. But I promise you that The Breaker is a story of epic proportion. And so is The Breaker New Waves.

The single best manga (manwha) that currently runs in my opinion
Great art, Good storyline, thrilling characters.
And very inspiring as a life lesson about willpower

Every chapter that releases makes me hold my breath and sit on the edge of my chair till the very last page.
Then makes me grind my teeth waiting for the next release..

This is something that the current top 5 haven't succeeded at for me lately.

This manga is undervalued, and under appreciated
And deserves to be in the top 15 at least..

If you're interested in reading it, I suggest you read the breaker first
(which is the first part of this storyline)

~20 male

This manga is literally the most amazing manga out there. I've read Gantz, Naruto, HotD, Bleach, Monster, I mean, you list it and I've had the free time to grind through chapter. The Prequel to this is what caught me: "The Breaker." In the beginning it seems very boring because if you haven't read the prequel then you have no idea what's going on. BUT! The creator of this manga deserves AWARDS. I Literally have nail-biting, thought-riveting, daily panic attacks just waiting for the next chapter of this series. The story is so deep and the manga itself is Unrivaled.

27 Gantz

Should be in the Top 5... the character progression story and just Uniqueness and Unpredictability of it is amazing... We won't ever get another Manga like Gantz ever again

The best manga to showcase the worst side of humanity, generally questioned our purpose in life. fighting aliens and yet still very relatable MC. lots of fan service. Although it's a cheap manga to appeal to fans, I still love the heck out of it. Don't get attached to any characters. life is short and fleeting. One of my Top 5. Lousy ending though.

This is the only manga that uses blood and gore to convey a highly controversial topic not talked about nearly enough
With the constant flow of new characters the main antagonist must face everyday problems as well as moral and ethical issues, while coping with the death of everyone he comes into contact with

Have you read other manga with gore like Berserk? I bet you have not... - Tia-Harribel

One of the best manga's ever (and still ongoing). It is very dark and disturbing but has a great story line with incredible character development. Easily my favorite manga of all time.

28 Battle Angel Alita

Greatest series out there, goes out of the common themes of friendship that have been written about too many times. The quest for individuality is great and the quality and details of drawing is up there

This was a huge step in the sci fi genre that does not even need an anime series to show that it is great, so why on earth is it so low in this list?!

Simply one of the greatest mangas ever conceived in modern times. The fleshed-out characters, the neo-apocalyptic atmosphere, the complex story, the beautiful fights, everything in BA:a or BA:A-The Last Order screams 'perfection'.

Why is this so low, this manga is one of the most well drawn and the greatest characters I've seen.

29 Rurouni Kenshin Rurouni Kenshin Wiki is a collaborative website about the series 'Rurouni Kenshin: Meiji Swordsman Romantic Story' (るろうに剣心 明治剣客浪漫譚, Rurōni Kenshin Meiji Kenkaku Rōmantan), also known as 'Rurouni Kenshin' and 'Samurai X'. more.

Rurouni Kenshin demonstrates that strength isn't just being able to hold one's own in a fight or be the last man standing in battle. There's courage in finding the will to keep living no matter how hurt one has been in the past or how unworthy they find their own lives.
Kenshin is a very human character in that he has made some grevious errors in his past. Everyone makes mistakes or have done something they regret, but instead of letting it drive him to ruin Kenshin finds the strength to help the people he sees around him as some measure of atonement for his past. As the story progresses the reader can really appreciate how different some character's lives may be if Kenshin had never been been involved their lives.
The emphasis on how great change can happen when simple citizens choose to act and the appreciation and value for life make this manga something that will always hold a pretty special place for me.

Kenshin, a vagabond who chose he will never kill someone anymore after he has been the most terrible assassin of a political war. It's the story of man who fight against his past and his own self in order to make a peaceful society. The cross on his face is the nodal point of all the story.

I have always loved this manga and I personally think it should be number one, I really enjoy not only the characters, but also the storyline and the historical inputs. All in all, it is just a wonderful manga

This is the first manga I read and will be my all time favorite ever." a sword that protects life", "the will to live is the strongest force", "your past life should not ruin your future" are some of my favorite quotes from this manga. Long live kenshin

30 The World God Only Knows

Good story but I thing there are to many love triangles for the main character (at least from what I read so far) that it gets kinda' tiring to watch. And I think they kind of stretched the story too far. But overall, I thing it's a great manga/anime because it has a great story and great artwork and it's very very hilarious.

This combination of Hell, love, and devils make it a interesting manga with a awesome story line!

This in my opinion but this should be number one because it is the only manga that I fell in love with and all the others I just stopped reading because I got bored with them

It's a good story, but the plots and the romance is just too weird.

31 Pandora Hearts

HAVE YOU READ THE LATEST CHAPTERS?! IT DROVE ME INSANE! Pandora Hearts is like a part of my life now! What ever happens to the characters deeply affects me and my emotions. Like when somebody dies, I cry my eyes out for the next week. I watch plenty of anime but this is the only manga I keep up to date with because it's so totally WORTH IT! The artwork is the most gorgeous I've ever seen and the plot is brilliantly thought up and with a very unexpected twist that will drive you mad! No manga is ever going to beat Pandora Hearts in my book.

A lot of series have good art, good plot, good characters. But Pandora Hearts is the only manga I dare say that has the best all of those BECAUSE EVERY PAGE PULLS YOU IN DEEPER into a MOOD that is so haunting, beautiful, tragic, and unbelievable.


This is better than Naruto or Bleach, trust me. Pandora Hearts has something for everyone. Read between the lines.

The story is so interesting. You just can't stop wondering who really is Oz. Specially who KILLED poor Alice. Who really is responsible of the TRAGEDY OF SABLIER.

Damn! This manga has everything! The plot is rich, the characters develop in a very beautiful way, the twisted mystery, and the art is beautiful. Oh! Don't forget the amazing feels it brings.. at first it looks like a light-hearted manga but after reading a couple of chapters it becomes twisted, complex and dark and the way how it slowly solves the mystery connecting every detail of the past to the present.. It's so amazing that my praises for this manga isn't enough, I don't even know why this manga isn't very popular! Tsk. for people who haven't tried this spectacular manga yet.. please try it, I highly recommend it for people who love deep and complex plot!

32 Blade of the Immortal

Guys, this is the single best manga that I have ever read. A man with immortality forced on him has his ability to survive and protect others tested over and over. Beautiful, brilliant, sad, and superbly drawn. Please read and love this.

Masterful artwork, beautiful storytelling and world building. The best Samurai manga of all time by far

This is one of the best. Hiroaki Samura's drawings are great! He uses sometimes pencil instead ink. Anatomy is great, details are terrific and story is a lot better than other popular mangas. If you want to see good artwork, you should read this one.


33 Nana

Epic anime. I especially love the plot which is one of the best in mangas, anime also was quite well made but the most interesting is definitely manga.

Nana is the greatest anime that I have ever seen even if it's touching in the last chapters but still so good and I'm already dying to read chap 85 :'( really it should be in the top 10

The manga and anime are both good although the manga is incomplete, it shakes your heart and I love the plot and music. Just beautiful!

One of my favourite mangas though it's not as popular as the ones in top 10! Anyways, Nana is amazing

34 Vinland Saga

Vikings may have been ruthless but nonetheless this definitely deserves it's title as one of the four pillars of historical manga

Personally, since the anime is out and coming, this book is gaining Popularity. Many of the people who actually take the anime and the manga seriously want to read the manga and anime together so they can actually get the full aspect of what the story is about and what the actual manga and anime is about. the storyline is a very true and rich on casualties of the story, if people want to go over with a true story line. the actual benefits from actual history with the saga is one of the best ways to give a total and rich in history aspect.

Vinland Saga is just really awesome, and the plot's developing in all kinds of directions. Heck, I even enjoyed the Farmer's Saga. It also has a really nice way of portraying the character's emotion, and what drives them in a realistic way, which is something a lot of mangas lack a bit.

Not much is out right now, which WILL most likely urk you if you love it, since you're probably going to read this in one sitting. I like to explain this as a slice of life/brutal viking war/philosophy challenging/coming of age physically, mentally, and spiritually story. needs to be in at least everyone's honorable mentions list.

35 Fruits Basket After the accident in which she lost her mother, 16-year-old Tooru moves in with her grandfather, but due to his home being renovated, is unable to continue living with him. Claiming she will find someone to stay with but also fearing the criticism of her family and not wanting to burden any of her more.

This series was amazing and so sweet. It was cute, and had such a rainbow of emotions so beautifully splayed out. The romance was perfect, it wasn't overdone for the series but obviously such an integral part, and as one person commented, also its very hilarious!

I can't believe this isn't in the top ten. I adore this series! I do like on other manga better (Kaze Hikaru) but its not listed so I voted on this. And really, Furuba should be higher.

It's very touching and sweet, I loved it because it made me very happy and also it helped me to learn the life's perspectives and Torhu is very strong. Also it's very hilarious.

How can they put fruits basket in 32. place
Come on people vote so fruits basket is number 1
I think I love fruits basket because Tohru is the hero and that the series has a nice ending
I would really love it if they made another manga that was made to show what happens after Tohru and Kyo move away and how their life continues

36 Assassination Classroom

This has been one of the most fun, engaging series that I've ever read! I'm surprised that it has been placed so low! I mean, to have a whole classroom of students trained to assassinate their teacher who is an unknown entity (an octopus/alien/emoticon mix) and yet to have a teacher that shows such great care and love for his students (harkens to legendary stories like "To Sir With Love" etc) and the COMEDY! I think that this is a very underrated series, just read the first chapter, you'll be hooked!

This should at least be on the top 20, the story is so touching and at the same time complete with humor and action. It also has cool and unique characters that'll keep you reading this amazing piece of artwork. The artwork is also amazing...

Brilliant in every possible way, the story seems innocent at first, but as I went through the story, it gripped me in ways that I had never before felt. I really cared about the characters, especially kuro sensei.

So funny and amazing!

37 Pokemon Adventures

I've only read the first three, but I can say it's way better than the anime.

Pokemon Adventures/Special is not well known but a very good manga- it starts of childish but later it gets much, much better. If you are looking for action, adventure, a good plot, the characters ageing instead of staying ten all the time, romance and a Pokemon manga more mature then the Pokemon anime, this manga is perfect for you!

Good manga original origin of the still ongoing anime called Pokemon

I like the pokemon anime but this is simple too amazing.

38 Uzumaki

This is such an under appreciated series... The way Junji Ito captures the atmosphere is perfect. It's absolutely astonishing how he can turn such common concepts into ones worst nightmare. This manga is honestly top 10 for me, and should at least be in the top 35 of all time.

This is an amazing body horror manga about a town that gets haunted by a spiral. I know it sounds stupid but hold on. Shuichi's dad gets obsessed with spirals and it goes so far that he breaks al his bones and curls his body into a spiral. It's really horrifying imagery and is sure to make you say what. A lot of weird things happen in the town from now on ibcluding: a girl gets a spiral scar that turns into a giant hole that eats her entire body. Slow people start turning into snails. Pregnant women drink human blood to feed their babies. A lighthouse emits a weird light so powerful that it burns people up. It all ends when a hurricane comes to the town. They look up and find that the hurricane is a giant eye and is watching keika. 6 more hurricanes come and completely destroy the town, except for the old row houses, which are completely unharmed. Nobody can leave the town anymore, and ships and airplanes that come get sucked up by whirlpools and tornados. Weird things happen in the ...more

39 X

What is it really called x?

40 Shaman King

Best manga I have ever read
Good manga for beginners too

The characters are all very unique, and you could love them all.

The best manga ever it has good detail and a Great storyline

By far, the best hero ever: being a non-stream kind of hero and apparently a weak one, it really comes as a surprise how much he evolves considering his unusual resolve.
Incredibly good plot, develloped extremely well (at least for the first 250 chapters). From that point on it starts to lose quality.
Average art work.

41 Akame ga Kiru

Really good manga. Solid. I like how it showcase the darker side of humanity. Great character development, which (to everyone who read this will know why it) makes this manga a great one.

Love this manga. Got me into the whole manga scene after strictly watching only anime. I love the dark messed up scenes that make your heart turn into a knot. Or how they get the pace of the story to being a real up lighting tone then your suddenly forced to watch your hopes come crashing down as you share your despair with the characters. Can't get enough!

Be prepared for some blood and generally depressing scenes. It's really sad. Don't get attached to the characters.

For me its in the top three

42 The Breaker

Great action and awesome abilities. Not on my top 10 but definitely on my top 20. At least attempt to read it! ( you will definitely decide to finish it though)

Really amazing art, amazing action scenes, amazing protagonists, amazing plot. I dare to say it's perfect. Definitely worth checking out.

Better than it's sequel, and why I'm voting for it instead of the latter. this is the origin story, where the nine arts dragon is a fully realized badass and not some anti-thesis the main character has a hard-on for. read this before new waves 100% of the time or you will not appreciate it.

In my top 10 considering the breaker and new wave as one series

43 Vampire Hunter D
44 Neon Genesis Evangelion Neon Genesis Evangelion, commonly referred to as Evangelion or Eva, is a Japanese animated television series produced by Gainax and Tatsunoko Production, and directed by Hideaki Anno.

I'm not done but I think this is way better than the show so far everything is done so perfectly and it gave me a deeper understanding of the show. plus the characters are more likeable

After crossing all the thoughts in my mind, I would like to rate this Anime/Manga best on the basis of:-Three words: "Depth of imagination". Enough said.

I really like their story with these futuristic robots and all that futuristic stuff.

One of the deepest anime, where it takes multiple viewing just to know what really is going on

45 Black Cat

Great Story with a great protagonist. The characters have amazing powers, this is quite an original anime.

It's a really good story and has some awesome action. Love Train aka Black Cat. I also miss Saya, wish she didn't die.

I love this MANGA! Ggrr to however disagrees with me I will send my eyeliner after you hehe eat my bubbles! Hehe laugh out loud! Never knock it until you read reading it! Its one of the best mangas to read EVER! Muah I kissed the manga hehehe! Love you black cat series!

I am in love with this story wither it was a manga or an anime I really like train and I really miss saya

46 Boku No Hero Academia My Hero Academia is a superhero manga series written and illustrated by Kōhei Horikoshi. It has been serialized in Weekly Shōnen Jump since July 2014, and 20 volumes have been collected in tankōbon format.

Seriously good show. All the charaters are likeable and the story pulled me in from the first episode. Didn't think I would be interested in this stuff, BUT OH MANN THIS WAS EPIC

Boku No Hero is amazing! It should be in the top 5 or 10. It has an awesome story, and it's full of action.

I love it! I haven't finished it yet but it is absolutely my most favorite manga/ anime ever!

I love BNHA/MHA so much. I love both anime and manga of it. I'm sad it is not even on top 10 but this place is good as well I guess!

47 Real

It seems that no one has ever heard of this manga. The story is so touching and at times can feel like a visceral gut punch. Takehiko Inoue (author of Vagabond and Slam Dunk) hold nothing back in this series. By far his best work. If you or anyone you know have a disability or have ever gone through a hard time, you owe it to yourself to read this series. All I can say is that it is amazing.

This manga is so underrated. It has a complex but down to earth storyline, and the art is just simply superb.
The author of Slam Dunk and vagabond takes a different approach here, for a more personal manga, about early adulthood and finding your place in the world, with all the downsides of life.
I can't recommend it enough

Easily my favorite manga. There's something for everyone in it whether you like comedy, drama, or action.

Criminally low rated on this particular list, takehiko inoue hits it out of the park. this is NOT a sports manga. at all. this is one of the most mature, heartwrenching reads that EVERY manga enthusiast needs to undergo. viable to take the #1 spot on many an educated manga maniac's list.

48 Rave Master

Rave Master is definitely one of the best manga ever, it spawned Fairy Tail afterwards! It inspired so many after it. How it's so low, I don't know though...

This is the best manga ever. My most favorite. The plot is great and the ending was just... Awesome. This should be in the top 10.

I like Rave because of the plot and character development. No manga I've ever read beats it in those aspects.

I've read this three times and it should be so much higher on the list. The character development is awesome to watch as well.

49 Battle Royale

gore, psychological, messed up manga are my favourite. Manga seems to me is the best way to channel and showcase the worst of what human being can be when they get desperate. easily a top 5 manga

Awesome story, Amazing characters in a countless moral debates. Yeah, it's very gore with a lot of violence and nudity, but don't be deceived by appearances. Very deep messages and action that will catch you since the first pages.

Awesome manga, with a very deep meaning and message.

50 Grand Blue

Stupid humuor taken to a whole another level. I actually laughed out loud while reading it, and there wasn't a single chapter that made me laugh. The characters are unique I would say and all have interesting quirks, but yet they gel well together. One of the best comedic pieces ever and one wouldn't be able to put this manga down once they start reading it.
