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 inspired Oda and many other manga writers.

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 Aoyama Gosho

He must be really damn smart...

Smartest writer ever in history

7 Umezu Kazuo
8 Hojo Tsukasa
9 Urasawa Naoki

Monster and 20th Century Boys are just brilliant

His works are genius

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!

10 Yoshihiro Togashi

He is awesome.

Created two of the best manga's ever

No one else come close.

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.

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


12 Tite Kubo

Why not...

13 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

14 Hiromu Arakawa

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.

15 Kentaro Miura

Berserk is awesome, he should be in TOP 5!

Created Berserk, enough said

16 Hajime Isayama

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 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!

Attack on titan son

17 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.

18 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

19 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

20 Kazuki Takahashi
21 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?

22 Fujiko Fujio
23 Suzue Miuchi
24 Mayumi Muroyama

Her manga is comedy and good :)

40 Shibata Yokusaru
41 Shinji Wada
42 Riyoko Ikeda
43 Tatsuya Egawa
44 Yoichi Takahashi
45 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.

46 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.
