mine would have to be Jojo's Bizarre Adventure part 7: Steel Ball run.

steel_ball_run_wallpaper_by_magma_dragoo

it has an amazing art style which really shows what Hirohiko Araki is capable of and speeks for its self.

the fights are amazing and varied. this manga breaks all shonen tropes when it comes to the battles. enemies and protagonist alike are imbued with strange and highly situational powers. the winner are determined by pure intelligence and cunning. who ever can use they're strange abilities better than the other is the winner. For instance one person has the ability to reverse time 5 minutes, but is bound by strange sense of honor and never shoots first.

or another example would be the main antagonist (who is the president of the united states), has the ability to travel to parallel universes by being pressed in between two objects. he uses this power to make himself immortal as he can implant his consciousness into the "him" from the other universes. he can also bring back doubles of enemies that explode when they meet the originals.

his powers also manifest as a humanoid "stand" which can engage in melee combat.

The story can only be considered a masterpiece. it takes place during the first intercontinental race: Steel Ball Run. mixed with horse racing and inter character rivalries is a strange quest by the us government to gather the corpse parts of Jesus Christ(which grant the owners supernatural powers) at the expense of the racers. the protagonists inadvertently fight them and other strange enemies as they try to win the most intense horse race ever.

this story is anything but cliche.

this manga has it all great battles, great characters, a superb and original plot and an amazing art style.

so whats your favorite manga?

I've never read manga or know what its really about. Is it basically just like an anime but comic book form? I used to love animes like Neon Genesis Evangelion, Cowboy Bebop, Berserk, etc.

most anime are based on manga. which are a lot like comic books, except they are mostly in black and white and come out much more frequently:20 pages weekly or 30-60 pages monthly.

That's some ugly art style right there....

 

 

I only read one manga. Vinland Saga. Absolutely beautifully drawn and it's about vikings. It's badass. In fact let's point this out again, it's a manga. About vikings. There is way too few media (games, manga, movies, series, books) about vikings. Why not? They're awesome.

if you are talking about kenshin, the art is a lot better in the actual panels. the volume covers don't really represent the art very well.

I can't decide just one, because it really depends on where I'm at atm in the manga and my overall mood for a certain genre, but my top 5 in MyAnimeList are currently:

Claymore - Because I like the characters and the setting, and the artstyle.

I am a Hero - Because it has amazing artstyle and is messed up at times.

Vagabond - Artstyle+story+characters

Shigurui - See above.

Lives - Mostly because of the artstyle, which I absolutely love.

Berserk, specifically the Golden Age arc. After the introduction to the main character, Guts, as an almost unsympathetic, brutal, and somewhat sardonic person whom embodies "that which does not kill us makes us stronger" in the first arc; it leaves a strong impression on who he is. Through the Golden Age arc we see the events that would lead to the development of such character. It brings into question the nature of men, whether we are tethered by causality or if we have a will of our own. There are also serious consequences to the decisions and actions characters make, some of which add to a sense foreboding given the state at which we see Guts both physically and mentally in the first arc.

It has great character development, given the array of the human condition the manga explores. The depths of depravity people journey through in order to shield themselves from the limitations of being human; ultimately how people cope with situations we find ourselves in and whether we have ever had real choice. That sharply contrasts with characters like Guts, who moves on despite the trauma and abuse he has faced through the sheer strength of his will alone. We also see how society and culture temper a persons state of being and raison d'être. The traits people find desirable and how they follow those with strong will like that of Griffith's. Griffith is handsome, intelligent, talented, and extremely capable. A man driven by his own purpose, something of a foil to Guts who survives simply to live another day. The crux of the Golden Age arc being the relationship that is forged between the two, and how both are affected by each other.

What are we willing to sacrifice in order to achieve that which we most desire? Some are more than willing to cast off their humanity, both in a literal and metaphorical sense, to attain it. There are those whom are self-sacrificing, and those that still search for it. A dream, a purpose, a reason to be. People find something to attach themselves to in order to keep on moving. Whether it be something as simple as protecting another, or as lofty as ruling your own kingdom. Though there are elements that are beyond our control: when, where, and to whom we are born to. How our societal standing affects our desires and expectations. What does it mean for the choices we make, when we so foolishly believe we are in charge of the situations we find ourselves in? 

It can be a very graphic manga. It does not shy away from depicting the cruelty people inflict on others. It also relishes in very fantastical depictions of gore. But that violence is necessary to the story the manga is trying to tell. There are moments of levity, something that is needed or else the story would be a bit too bleak. The moments of lightness also helps to contrast with the darkness the story presents. No one is truly safe in the world of Berserk. Even though Guts survives, he doesn't leave unscarred.

There are plenty of other reasons I find this to be not only my favorite, but the best manga ever. But I think that's enough for today.

frannkzappa

Considering the real Musashi is a near mythical figure equivalent to people like Wong Fei-Hung, portrayals in the media are destined to be skewed for entertainment value.

This raises the question; who the fvck would read a manga expecting historical accuracy? wtf

There are various manga that are historically accurate, you can mostly find them serialized in Ran and Ran Twins.

Historically musashi is a dick,

"The historical Musashi had little honor, at least in the sense that Bushido defines it. He would use any edge he could to win a duel, whether it involved killing a child or ambushing his foes. In his famous duel at Funajima (later named Ganryujima in honor of his slain foe) with rival swordsman Sasaki Kojiro, many historians now believe that Musashi failed to kill his foe. Instead, its thought that he merely wounded Sasaki and that it was Musashis retinue (thats right-contrary to popular belief, it seems Musashi didnt arrive on the island alone) that later ambushed and killed him"

it's also what the manga (or the novel it was based on) didn't portray

There are several manga I favor for their unique qualities. I will list these.

1) JoJo's Bizarre Adventure 

-Story

-Artsyle

-Characters

-Theme

-Setting

I would also like to note at least a couple ideas in Street Fighter might have come from JoJo. Dhalsim's body stretching is from Jonathan Joestar's Zoom Punch he learns from Zeppeli and Rose might be based on Lisa Lisa.

in case you didn't know i am a massive fan of jojo.

dhalsim was based of the pillar men from part two, which had body manipulation abilities.

and guile from street fighter was based on part 2's stroheim.

grappler baki is my second favorite series, glad to see there is another fan.

yeah its pretty cool most people have over looked this series. It has a 2 season anime that is unfished as well as a finnished light novel series the manga is still on going. I liked the anime so much i started reading the books which for me is not very common because i hate reading lol. Its about a wolf god and a traveler that agress to take her back to her home land and the drama they have on the way.
