RE: What's your favorite manga?

I only have 3 mangas: Mobile Fighter G Gundam (Vol. 1), Gundam Wing Endless Waltz, and Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo. I'd probably put Gundam Wing in 3rd place. As for the other two...well, I'll just say they're tied for first. They're too radically different from each other for me to make an honest comparison. In all honesty, though, I really don't care as much for the mangas as I do for the animes:

In G Gundam's case...well, I've loved the anime from the first time I saw it, but superb music scores are one of the big factors as to why I still remember it so well. Being a manga, there is none of that music, so it's much more forgettable. Plus, trying to cram the entire storyline of the anime into three measly volumes means that the creator(s) end up compressing some of the good parts of the story severely or even omitting them altogether.

As for Bo-bobo (overall "funkiness" aside), the fact that the book that I have (and the only one yet available in English, to the best of my knowledge) starts in the middle of the story is really irksome to me, especially when I don't have the preceding volumes. Also, the blood spurting from every single attack is a gross exaggeration; it's amazing Bo-bobo and Co. have any blood at all at this point of the story (which is fairly late in the storyline).

I'm not into Manga and Anime anymore, but I still love Blade of the Immortal/Mugen no Juunin. I haven't been reading the manga for at least two years tho, since I constantly spend my money for other stuff and I don't see the point in spending 5,00 or 6,50 euros for a manga book I can read in one hour, when I can buy a 600 page novel for the same amount of money (or slightly more) and be entertained for at least a week.


I don't think it's the amount of time you are entertained, but how much. <_< Anyways, I have moods where I'd deffinetly read a book rather than manga. :D;

Er, well, Ranma 1/2 tops my list, right now. DNAngel, Naruto (i've read so many scanlations online, i think I lost five feet of eyesight D: ), and Rurouni Kenshin. Lone Wolf and Cub is pretty good, as well.

Why is the japanese language so much more fun than the french language? D:<

Naruto and Yotsubato for me ;)

I'd have to definately say either Faerie's Landing or Ragnarok. However, both of those are Korean...hmm..


As far as Japanese manga goes, Angel Sanctuary would be my favorite. :P
I have no signature. :[
