I read a lot of manga. ^^ I don't have good explinations for some of them.... ;;>>

EDIT: I don't really read much of DB series, Tenchi Muyo, Megaman NT Warrior, and Fruits Basket. I haven't really gotten the books. CCS ended a long time ago and Viz stopped translating Pokemon ADVENTURES around volume seven that actually send to the USA...

Cardcaptor Sakura - It is one of the best manga ever.
Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo - It's funny and yet confusing.
Pokemon ADVENTURES - I love Ruby and Sapphire. ^^
Tenchi Muyo - I liked the anime.
Megaman NT Warrior - I like Megaman so why not look at the manga?
Furi Kuri (FLCL) - xD Confusing.
RAVE (Groove Adventure Rave/Rave Master) - Hiro Mashima sure can make a good manga. It's funny. xD
Full Metal Alchemist - I liked the anime.
One Piece - The dub is crap.
Tokyo Mew Mew - The dub is crap.
Naruto - Because I like it.
DN Angel - It looked interesting.
Tsubasa RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE - I wanted to know what elese happened to Sakura and Syaoran...
MAR (Marchen Awakens Romance) - It looked interesting.
Bleach - People said it was good.
Fruits Basket - Meh, I only read to book three but it's okay.
Galaxy Angel - A friend told me it was good.
Kingdom Hearts - I love the game series.

EDIT:I'm adding Chrono Crusade! ^_^

Only ones I have ever read were the Neon Genesis Evangelion ones, and a bit of Gundam, Rurouni Kenshin. I read them because I simply enjoyed the animes. ^_-

I knew about Death Note 2 years before they made a english release of it >_>;; I thought it was a bit strange at first.

I don't exactly collect the whole series of a manga, i just read some here and there.
Negima! - Funny.
Love Hina - Funny.
Ultimate Muscle - Needed something to read on my trip to Nevada a few years back.
Megaman NT Warrior - I hate the translations. Makes me sad. But it beats the hell out of translating it myself.
Dragon Ball - I used to watch the show >_>;;
Gundam Wing - I like mecha >_>.
Ranma 1/2 - Funny.
Inuyasha - Only used to read this back when i used to watch it. Not anymore tho. Stopped like at book 6.
Inital D - I used to play >_>;; So i thought i'd read up on the storyline. Stopped readin and watchin tho.
Death Note - Good story and stuff, and it's pretty amazing how much Light plans ahead in his killings.
Samurai Deeper Kyo - Typical sword fighting. S'ok.
Comic Party - Meh, jus bought one to see if i'd like it or not.
Bleach - Eh, it's alright, too over marketed now though. Stopped at like...book 5. Stopped watchin around ep...25?
Rave Master - Ehh...s'ok but the way everything is , is a bit too convinient in how haru gets things at the right time.
Full Metal Alchemist - Bought one book, needed to read something on trip to California.
Rurouni Kenshin - Liked the show, and wanted to see what happened after Shioshio was beaten.
King of Bandit Jing - Got bored so i bought a few. It's ok.
Detective Conan - Mysteries are fun to read.

It's hard to explain how to pronounce words with just text... Especially since some people pronounce words differently within the same language.

But anyways

Rurouni Kenshin - Shishio and Saitou
Berserk - Violence, Guts, and Puck (to a lesser extent the Godhand and Griffith [I both like and despise him])
Lupin III - Hilarity

Unfortunately there's not alot of manga I like, because I really don't like shoujo crap (don't give a damn who's going out with who and who's magical) and shounen crap (screaming out your attacks before doing them seems kind of detrimental to the attack, to me. Plus the frequent "standing over to the side of a giant battle and discussing it like nothings wrong" doesn't work either. Alot of cheese)..and that's pretty much all the market is. And I don't like the american comic market either because it's all muscular people with small heads drawn by pretentious jerkoffs.

Eighteen headed dragon stab!!

...no, my attacks aren't hurting them!

Nooooo their egos are too strong!

*some guy off to the side* Wow, looks like Hollow's having alot of trouble with those american comic artists..
*Guy #2* Yeah, I thought the Eighteen Headed Dragon Stab would work. Maybe yelling it so it could be avoided was a bad thing.
*Guy #1* Yeah, like in that movie Akira..did you ever watch that?

ARGH someone help they're swarming me! THIRTEEN HEADED CENTIPEDE TREE DEVOURER!!

*Guy #2* Yeah I saw Akira..they yelled alot in that movie too. Was pretty creepy, can't remember alot of it though. Kinda overrated nowadays, huh?
*Guy #1* Yeah, I guess so. I don't keep up with anime.

Nooooo they're assaulting me with pretentious words and comic ideas that are so overdramatic it's hilarious! Must...not...laugh!

*Guy #1* I don't watch anime either, unless there's some hot chick in it. Alot of guys told me to watch Ev..Evangelion? for Rei something or other..
*Guy #2* Bah, she's old hat.

Battle Angel Alita/Gunnm - Best. Manga. Ever.
Mobile Suit Gundam: 0079 - One of my favorite animes, good manga too.
MAR - Seems interesting so far.
Naruto - I KNOW it sucks, that's why I'm reading it XD
Gundam SEED Astray - Best part of the SEED saga.

And the rest are manwhas.

I just started reading Chrono Crusade a few days ago. I really like it. ^_^

Although some stupid person spoiled the ending. I didn't mean to read it. I was just reading this one thing and of course it wasn't marked as a spoiler. *grr*

Hmm.
Let's see... *stares at bookshelf*


Name [number of volumes at this moment] - reason or something

Bleach [5] - I have wacthed this in anime and the manga looks great too so why not?
Detective Conan [from 3rd to 19th] - Interesting mysteries
Fruits Basket [13] - I want to know what happens on the end..
Ginga Legend Weed [3] - Ginga Nagareboshi Gin in anime was really great, but because GLW-anime is really bad for eyes to watch, I rather buy the manga.
Inuyasha [7] - Err... I dunno. Maybe because I wasn't able to see it in anime.
Immortal Rain [6] - Interesting story
Kingdom Hearts [1] - That game was great so the manga must be great too.
Negima! [1] - Err. I bought this because I was curious? 8D; - No, I'm not a pervert.. >.>""
Neon Genesis Evangelion [1] - I have watched some episodes of this anime and now I started to buy manga and read them all.
One Piece [13] - Once I was so interested in pirates and so on.
Time Stranger Kyoko [all 3] - I fell in love when I saw this in the store~
Tokyo MewMew [4] - I don't know why I read this..
Trigun Maximum [2 and 4] - I have watched Trigun and of course I'd to buy manga.. ^^"

And some mangas what I don't read anymore.. Maybe because I was lazy to read more.
Dragon Ball [Well, only four volumes of this]
Ranma½ [Better than DB - only two]

My answer can be kept really short: none.

I don't read manga on regular base. Nowhere near where I live can you buy manga.

Currently... Nothing much. I try to not even get close to the manga sections at my bookstores (they started mixing the yaoi and hentai manga with the regular and do not separate the titles by genre (which is annoying)). I don't pick up new titles unless I am certain they are clean or that someone recommended it to me.


From Far Away: ...what? Can't I read a little romance? ^^;; I really can't stand shojo manga but this one is different. I somehow found a clean one that also has better issues than "I need to get 'A's on my next test!", "I hate Keiko! She stole my boyfriend!", or "Transform! Super Power Girl Flash!" The manga is cute, serious, actiony, and romantic. Sure, it has some cliched things about it (girl is transported to another world, girl falls in love with first boy she sees, etc.), but the writer treats it with a bit more realism than the bulk of shojo writers.

Megaman NT Warrior: Who's bright idea was it to darken the images so badly that you can't make out detail in some pages or to make the original scans so big that they cut off on the sides of the page? This title is poorly reproduced... Other than the graphical disappointments, I like it. I somehow feel that Lan and Hub has more of a bond in the manga than in the anime or the games (and that's real big points to me).

Kingdom Hearts: Really, it's a waste of "munny." The characters and stories are much more flat than how they are presented in the game. It's like a quick superficial summary of the game. Did this person really played the game? ^^; Good thing it costs less than regular manga titles... Good Uses: Practicing drawing HK characters or a cute cup coaster.

Of course, I use to collect the Astro Boy manga but all the bookstores I go to took them all off the shelves. I think someone complained about them...

Ha. Anything that uses the term "old hat" wins instant awesome points.

I read:

Trigun / Trigun Maximum - Love it. Recently started re-reading it to hold me over 'til Trigun Maximum vol. 9 is released (which semms to just keep getting pushed back)
Hellsing - Thought it'd be a sack o' crap, but I fell for it. Violence and vampires, always fun.
Berserk - Picked it up upon recommendation. Deliciously violent.
Sword of the Dark Ones - Only 3 volumes long, but it was fun, and I liked the art. Pick it up.

Others Worth Mentioning:

FLCL - Loved the show, didn't like the manga so much. I read 'em both anyway.
Neon Genesis Evangelion - Picked up the first few after I saw the anime for the first time, grew tired of EVA shortly after. I may get back into it eventually.
Naruto - Recommended (strangely enough) by the same person who recommended I get into Berserk. The whole kiddie packaging this series is wrapped in often puts me off, but it does have some redeeming qualities here and there.
Testarotho - Took a gamble and picked up the first issue (couldn't check it out in the store as it was one of those shrink-wrapped ones) Not much about it appealed to me. Have yet to finish volume 1 and probably won't get the others.

The two things I dislike most about American comics are:
1. They only stay in print for one month per issue
2. The artisits and writers change constantly making for obnoxious inconsistencies
Both of these things are thankfully absent from manga, which why I don't mind collecting it.

I also highly recommend the Trigun manga. Far superior to the anime.
