I'd recommend Jojo's Bizarre Adventure as well. It's epic in every sense... one must read it to understand.

I love Moon Boy and Priceless by Young You Lee. Harmonia's right, Korean stuff is awesome. xDD

If you're into gender-bending (...anyone?) MagicxMiracle is good. I don't think boys would like it too well (sort of girlish for their tastes, so I've been told)
Pretty face is a good perverted laugh as well. xD

I recommend Basara and Akira, for some reason as amazing as these mangas are they are relatively unknown. :-k

Anime chic wrote:I took a look at hot gimmick i think. Is it about the chick that goes to get a pregnacy test thing 4 her sister and ends up becoming some guys slave?
Yes, and sadly, I was dissapointed. -_-; I have volumes 1 and 2, and I don't like it anymore. >_<; I will not con tinue to purchase them, but I kinda do want to keep reading them, so I know what goes on... ;///; lol.

I've gone through every single page, and I do see some good manga people are recommending, but I mostly see people repeating the same ones over and over. =\ Sure, Naruto is a good manga. A great one, in fact. I prefer it over the anime 100%(but for some reason, I like manga almosat more than anime). But not EVERYONE likes it. I'm pretty sure just about EVERYONE knows about Naruto... don't need to make so many suggestions, lol.

Here's a list of my manga(Or at least of what I can remember. I'm not home, I'm house sitting for my supervisor from my previous work, lol)

Descendants of Darkness(Yami no Matseui) volumes 1-6
Eerie Queerie volumes 1 & 2(yaoi/shonen-ai)
Legal Drug volumes 1-3(shonen ai, a little bit...)
Ragnarok volume 1
Angel Sanctuary volume 1
The Demon Ororon volume 1(I don't want it anymore... anyone willing it to buy it from me? lol)
Hot Gimmick volumes 1 & 2(same goes for this one, lol)
.hack//Legend of the Twilight volumes 1-3(I FINALLY got vol. 3 last November... UGH. I had volumes 1 and 2 for YEARS. Actually. Legend of the Twilight volume 1 was one of my first manga I ever purchased O_O)
Gundam Wing: Episode Zero(I believe that was my very first manga purchase ever ^__^)
DNAngel volumes 1-9
Kill me, Kiss Me volume 1(I need to buy moooreee x__x)
Crescent Moon volumes 1-3(This has got to be my favorite manga of all time, tied with Yami no Matsuei. It is so cute, I highly recommend it! The art is unique, the characters are cute and the plot is pretty darn good)

geez... I think that's about it. If I remember what else I have on my bookshelf, I'll try to remember and post it. =\ There are so, so many different manga I want to read and try out, but it's hard, cause the only place I could get them would be at a bookstore that's an hour drive from here, and they can only special order them, and only a certain few, I think... other than that, would be in a city a little over 2 hours' drive from here, at a Barns & Noble, but that's way too far for me to drive.(Not to mention it's hard for me to get my paws on an anime magazine, so I can keep up to date with new manga releases, and I have the worse dial up in the world, so I don't have such a great time finding manga on there...) I hardly have the money, anyway. I could buy them from the Right Stuf catalog(I LOVE them to death), but I don't have much money... and I just made a pretty good order recently(cause I was dog sitting for my boss's for a week and I worked extra hours in their motel and store, so I got a lot of money). 3 t shirts, and anime DVD set and a CD, all came to a little over 99 dollars. xD *sigh*.

Here is information on Crescent Moon if anyone is wondering:
http://www.rightstuf.com/cgi-bin/catalo ... 1768/4/0/0
Okay, so it's not much, but whatever. xD ^_^;; heh.

Oh yes, and another manga I highly recommend, such as for maybe you Naruto or Ninja fans, is Nobari no Ou. Actually, I like it A LOT better than Naruto, in a way. It's a very good plot and story line and the characters are funny, yet serious and mysterious and awesome :3 I started reading it in the monthly manga magazine(like Shonen Jump or Shoujo Beat) called Yen Plus. I do recommend Yen Plus, absolutely. It is unique, having Japanese AND Korean manga on it, and even one by one artists, whose name I can't remember, but she does the story "Nightschool"(I think thats the name.. AURGH! it's too early in the morning, and I haven't read it in forever,..... so sue me. D: ) But she's from... the netherlands or sweden or something... >_<; someone help me out, please. lol. (I'll bring back some issues of it when I come home tomorrow or today for a little while).

Another new manga is being published in Shonen Jump(which I have had a subscription to for a few years already) is called Letter Bee. This one is full of adventure and fantasy like and the art work is very unique as well.

Sorry this is so long. Half of this is manga suggestions, and abot the other half is my life story. XD sorry.... *sweatdrops* But I hope this helps a little! ^^;

(W00T! my 100th post! \:D/ )

EDIT: Okay! I brought home two issues of Yen Plus. Here are the manga they have:

Maximum Ride(eh, not my favorite, but I read it anyway)
Jack Frost(a little to violent and gruesome for me XD but once again, I read it anyway, lol)
One Fine Day(This is so cute! I recommend this for those who like Fruits Basket or maybe even Hamtaro)
Sarasah(Funny, kinda interesting...lol. Cute artwork. Korean)
Pig Bride(I am actually somewhat confused by this manga o_O; Then again, I have missed a couple of issues, so I am a little lost, lol)
Nightschool(by Sveltana Chmakova! That's what I was trying to mention above. Very cute art and funny. Plot is creative. Sveltana is very creative and cute :3)
Higurashi: When They Cry(I don't like this one at all... more of a horror)
Bamboo Blade(I don't know what to say about this xD it's about Kendo)
Sumomomo,Momomo(ahh! this is such a awesome martial arts manga XD)
Nobari no Ou(I LOVE this ninja manga. I highly recommend it. :3)

So, there you go, some more suggestions. I hope you like them!! ^_^v
<3..*~Team Jacob or Team Edward. Seriously? I don't even have to think about it... I'm Team Damon. :] *~..<3
