17 The Empty Box And The Zeroth Maria
18 Tokyo Ghoul Tokyo Ghoul

This Manga (I'm NOT talking about the anime) is simply amazing! It is a story about finding one's identity in a world full of rivalry and battling one's own fears, emotions and weaknesses. The characters are all so fascinating in their own way (especially the main character). Beneath all the action is a wonderful message. I definitely recommend this!

20 Hirunaka no Ryuusei

24 Shingeki no Kyojin

Single greatest story, period. In all seriousness though, it's a modern masterpiece. Isayama's use of foreshadowing, contrast and atmosphere really set the tone for the story to unfold. It will keep you guessing the whole time and the use of deep, relatable characters will allow you to engage with the text on a while nother level. I 100% recommend this manga.

25 Akame ga Kill Akame ga Kill Akame ga Kill! (アカメが斬る!, Akame ga Kiru! is a manga published in Gangan Joker authored by Takahiro and Tashiro Tetsuya. It received an anime adaptation that premiered on July 6, 2014 and ended on December 14, 2014.

BEST IN THE WORLD, if you like mystery and good action!

It's meh. I dropped it after I saw a new character get introduced and start spilling their backstory everywhere. I thought "They're probably gonna die in a few chapters".

Guess what happened? There are only about 4 characters who will not die.

26 Your Lie In April Your Lie In April Your Lie in April, known in Japan as Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso or just simply Kimiuso, is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Naoshi Arakawa.

The best show ever!
