Top Ten Best Manga Author

The Top Ten

1 Eiichiro Oda

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.

Oda is a living legend! Enough said

The best Storyteller ever!

2 Masashi Kishimoto

Bro you know is the best in the world even made us cry at the end of the story

HE IS THE GOAT! I WANNA MEET HIM SOMEDAY... NARUTO HAS BEEN AN ENTHRALLING EXPERIENCE... UNFORGETTABLE WORK! GENIUS! IDEAL!

Samurai 8 is coming out soon! It sounds interesting.

Also Naruto is pretty good.

Kishimoto had already planned every step and story arc in naruto since volume 1...truly a genius.

3 Akira Toriyama

The greatest. Fact, not just opinion. - EvilAngel

Greatest no two opinions after dragon ball series

My favorite of all times

Two words, Dragon Ball

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 Aoyama Gosho

He must be really damn smart...

Smartest writer ever in history

Smartest writer ever..

6 Nobuhiro Watsuki
7 Umezu Kazuo
8 Hojo Tsukasa
9 Yoshihiro Togashi

His works is materpiece. No one can match his creativity and structure of how he made the HXH is not typical shounen anime.

He is awesome.

Created two of the best manga's ever

He made two amazing animes!

10 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!

Monster and 20th Century Boys are just brilliant

His works are genius

The Contenders

11 Hiro Mashima

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!

Greatest and grateful

Yas fairy tail foreveer

12 Hajime Isayama

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 son

13 Tite Kubo

Why not...

14 Kentaro Miura

Berserk is awesome, he should be in TOP 5!

Created Berserk, enough said

Berserk, enough said

Berserk is life!

15 Hiromu Arakawa

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? - winner333

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

16 Hirohiko Araki

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

Jojo is smart unique and not boring

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 ...more - ONEPUUUUNCH

17 Clamp

CLAMP isn't IN THE TOP TEN! CLAMP IS AMAZING and writes so many good seirises like tsubasa reservoir chronicle xHolic and card captor sakura

18 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.

19 Rumiko Takahashi

Rumiko Takahashi should be in the top - Hanaya_Reira

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

20 Takehiko Inoue
21 Kazuki Takahashi
22 Fujiko Fujio
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.

Sword Art Online and Accel World, anyone?

25 Suzue Miuchi
26 Mayumi Muroyama

Her manga is comedy and good :)

41 Shibata Yokusaru
42 Shinji Wada
43 Riyoko Ikeda
44 Tatsuya Egawa
45 Yoichi Takahashi
46 Ryūhei Tamura

I don't understand why One Piece (or the author of it in this case) is at the top of every list! I find it funny but not a manga that I would read more than once. I've read Beelzebub so many times and I'm always laughing out loud. WHY IS THE GREATEST AUTHOR EVER NOT ON THIS LIST?!? The art and every one of the characters are detailed and add to the humour.

47 Yuki Kaori

Kaori Yuki is known for her gothic/fantasy/horror manga. The most famous is probably Angel Sanctuary and then Earl Cain and Godchild. Other works of her include Ludwig Revolution, Fairy Cube, Blood Hound etc.
