Top Ten Best Manga Authors

The Top Ten
1 Eiichiro Oda

He's very great at foreshadowing in the storyline and he's able to spark a lot of theories and he's inspired by too many cultures around the world. He also gave us a bunch of laughs, drama and mysteries around one piece. Oda also knows how to tackle world issues and add more depth behind characters making them more important to the story than ever. He also gives out a great execution of lessons and many other writing tools

Oda sensei have the "imagination beyond godlike".
Just take a look at every single character in One Piece. They're all unique.

Oda sensei. You have made me start day dreaming like never before. Period.

He made One Piece everyone. /sigh
And everyone loves One Piece don't DENY I KNOW

So yeah he's pretty much the best mangaka for me

2 Masashi Kishimoto

He's one of my inspiration in writing stories. He made the anime Naruto which made me open my mind to every pain in life. I salute him for every life lessons he wrote on the Anime.

I don't know why oda came first 8n the list... One piece has gone down these days. Masashi know how to depict the villains with specific traits. The best fight I have ever seen in anime history is the fight with the pain. The feeling cannot be explained with words.. But the only problem was he should have stopped the story with NARUTO... Baruto is one of the worst anime out there. If u are a true naruto fan don't watch baruto... Never watch baruto

Well, he draws simple but realistic, which is really intresting. I really like his drawings and design an so...

Samurai 8 is coming out soon! It sounds interesting.

Also Naruto is pretty good.

3 Akira Toriyama

Dude made dr slump, got rich but decide "why not make a manga about a monkey boy"
And thus dragon ball came to life.

How is the author of the most popular fighting manga and one the greatest anime(which isn't as good as the manga) NOT in 1st?!

The greatest. Fact, not just opinion.

My favorite of all times

4 Osamu Tezuka

No one else had such a great impact on manga and anime as he did. Without him, manga and anime would have not developed the way it did and it would not be as popular and complex as it is.

The Godfather of manga

5 Nobuhiro Watsuki
6 Yoshihiro Togashi

Hunter x Hunter best anime. I have watched lot of good animes(Berserk, code geass, steins gate, death note, attack on titan,naruto etc..) among all these animes Hunter x Hunter stands at the top. Also, naruto author,Masashi Kishimoto, one of favorite manga author is Yoshihiro Togashi. It will very long before another anime as good as Hunter x Hunter comes out. It can be compared to Games of Thrones T.V. series.

Most awesome manga artist ever... I started out with fairytail, naruto, then one piece artists but he is the best of all the best. Too bad you got sick.. but nevertheless hunter X hunter is worth the wait! Glad it is back! Keep up the good work!

Is able to powerscale different characters very greatly and add a great amount of youthfulness to his projects.

Yoshihaitus Togashi is the best manga man ever except for the fact that he's on Haitus all the time. The man produced the best shounen of all time and another top 5 shounen beint hxh and yyh respectively.

7 Urasawa Naoki

An extraordinary ability to create characters whom will always have you wanting more from as the story develops. A true genius: Genius with a capital "G". Noaki Urasawa's Monster, 20th Century Boys, Pluto, Happy!, etc. Purely amazing!

His works are genius

8 Hajime Isayama

Has a very great depiction of fascism and the cons that come from abusing freedom, having a very great execution of conflict

Attack on Titan is my favourite story of all time... the way it has been written is absolutely creative and brilliant... Isayama is not only the best manga writer for me... he is the best story writer of all time!

His imagination for his world and characters is breathtaking, every time I read his work, it has me speechless and surprised, And it always has an unpredictable route that has been taken.

Attack on titan is the best!

9 Hiro Mashima

What I know he has the best series, also it is very well drawn. He inspired me to become a manga artist in the future. He has the right to be praised by his drawing skills. I love him!

He is just simply my favourite all his anime series have an awesome theme. His Fairy Tail series simply got me addicted to it. he's great I must say awesomeness ends with him. I'm his biggest fan of all time.

I'm just such a fan of his series Fairy Tail it's a good story and well drawn!

Drawing style is amazing

10 Hirohiko Araki

Araki is the world's best manga artist because he isn't afraid of trying new things. As we all know, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure is a multi-generational story, but it wasn't planned to be like that. The original protagonist was Jonathan Joestar, a character who was pretty much about as generic as any other manga protagonist. Araki, though, wanted to do better. He saw that Jonathan had hardly any room for development and started again, fifty years after the events of the first part, this time leading with a brand new character, Joseph Joestar.

Araki is always testing new and interesting ways to right he's manga. And even thought a lot of JoJo parts aren't perfect, each part has had its own massive cultural impact on its respective genre across Japan and other countries. JoJo isn't as widely known in western countries because of copyright laws (naming a lot of Stands after western songs, bands and albums, did I mention he loves western culture?)

Araki is willing to do ...more

Wrote one of the (if not the) most influential manga series to date. Starting back in 1987, and still continuing to this day.

His style inspires me to draw and write in a creative process with plot twists and cruel adventures!

He's such a genius

The Contenders
11 Hiromu Arakawa

Has a very great execution of science fiction and fantasy, whilst also being able to tackle many issues that can happen across the world.

You people realize this is the person who made fullmetal alchemists right? The most thoghtout and well put together manga I have ever read. Most mangas just go with the flow but this has a really well interlaced story where everything matters to the overall plot.

Fullmetal Alchemist! How can the person who gave us Fullmetal Alchemist not be in the Top Ten?

The best female manga artist ever. FMA is my most favorite shounen manga.

12 Aoyama Gosho

He must be really damn smart...

Smartest writer ever..

13 Tite Kubo

Mothers life he will always remain the worlds best manga artist and the worlds smartest man.

14 Kentaro Miura

Berserk is awesome, he should be in TOP 5!

Berserk, enough said

Berserk is life!

15 Tsugumi Ohba

Authour of Death Note, he writes very strategically and is very capable at revealing enough information to keep the reader interested but can keep enough to himself so that there's always going to be an "edge-of-your-seat" moment around the corner.

He has changed my life with death note.

16 Fujiko Fujio
17 Clamp
18 Rumiko Takahashi

InuYasha and Ranma 1/2 are just the funnys and best mangas ever. It's not nothing if she's the rich mangaka ever. SHE'S THE BEST.

However bad Ranma 1/2 was, InuYasha made up for it. She should be 4th after Akira Toriyama, Masashi Kishimoto and Tite Kubo

19 Takehiko Inoue
20 Hojo Tsukasa
21 Umezu Kazuo
22 Kazuki Takahashi
23 Tooru Fujisawa
24 Reki Kawahara

I know this guy writes light novels, but I wish this guy got more love for what he wrote. He created Sword Art Online AND Accel World. He should be at least as high as Hajime Isayama. Also, Kawahara isn't that bad of a writer. He regrets what mistakes he made in his writing and improves upon it in later volumes such as those of Sword Art Online. Kawahara really does show what it means to improve from your past mistakes. That's what I love about this guy.
