I LOVE MANGA!!!! I just thought I should get that out of the way before I started this thread. I like the fact that I can wait every week and be updated with a new part of the story. However, there are sometimes where I just want to read the manga and not have to wait for the ending. I know that some of you will think that I am just a party pooper and waiting for the next chapter is half the fun. I agree with that sentiment, but what do you do in the mean time when there is nothing else to do but wait. Here is why I came up with this thread, some reccomendations to you all who sometimes don't have patience:
Eyeshield 21: 333 chapters.
I personally liked this one because I like football. But this is not about football, it is about what a mangaka from japan thinks about american football and put a story and an interpretation into it and voila, eyeshield 21. It is a little slow in the beginning, and by that I mean the first 5 chapters. Highly entertaining and worth the read, hear is what it is about:
Kobayakawa Sena is a freshman in highschool. Despite his previous decisions to change his life, he finds himself in the exactly same place he was in during elementary school and junior high: a push over and an errand boy. However, this changes when Hiruma, the most feared person in his school and president of the American Football Club, notices Sena and forces him to join the Football Team. Now Sena will become Eyeshield 21, a mysterious running back with lighting fast speed.
MAR: 161 Chapters
Fun kid type of story, and entertaining. The concept of the fighting tools is a little like Bleach and the zanpakutou or if you have read 666 sata, like o-parts. Light hearted story and fun to read. Here is what it is about:
Ginta Toramizu is a 14-year-old kid who doesn't have a lot going for him: he's near-sighted, doesn't do well in school, sucks at sports, and to top it off--he's short! But Ginta is a dreamer and has had the same dream 102 times, always in the same fantasy world, where he is a hero blessed with all the abilities he lacks in real life.
Then one day a supernatural figure appears at Ginta's school and summons him to a mysterious and exciting new world! In this strange universe filled with magic and wonder, he is strong, tough, agile--and he can see without his glasses! Thus, Ginta begins a mystical quest in search of the magical items known as "
666 Satan: 76 chapters
Slow and entertaining is the best way I can sum this up. Sometimes tedious to read, but I enjoyed it. I know this doesn't sound like a rave review, and it is not, but it is only 76 chapters so it was worth it. The creator of 666 satan is the brother of the guy who does Naruto so you will see similarities in the story and the drawing between the two mangas. I enjoyed it, but if it had been more than 100 chapters I probably wouldn't have put it on this list. Here is what it is about:
Ruby Crescent is an ordinary girl, who likes to go out with boys and shop. Her life is changed dramatically when her father dies and she becomes a treasure hunter as he was. Her objective is to find O-Parts -- magical items hidden under the ground which grant people superhuman powers and can only be used by an O.P.T. (O-Part Tactician) or descendant of the Angel and Devil. She soon meets a mysterious boy named Jio who, due to having a dark, lonely past, seeks to conquer the world. Jio is hostile to her at first, but ends up travelling with Ruby as her bodyguard. When Ruby is attacked by an O.P.T. claiming to be Satan, Jio rushes to her rescue and a battle occurs. Initially they are on the losing side, but Jio releases his true power and is revealed to be not only an O.P.T., but the real Satan. Thus, the two continue to travel together in hopes of unlocking their pasts.
Rave: 296 Chapters
Fun read, worthwhile. Illustrations are similar to fairytail. Was definately enjoyable. Highly recommend. Here is what it is about:
The Continent of Song is in chaos. The sinister secret society known as Demon Card is using the power of Dark Bring to destroy everything in their path. The only things capable of stopping Dark Bring are the Rave stones. Unfortunately, the Rave Stones were scattered around the globe in an explosion 50 years ago, so now they must be collected by the Rave Master in order to stop Dark Bring once and for all.
Zatch Bell: 323 chapters
Loved this one. Thoroughly reccomend. Entertaining and totally worthwhile. Here is what it is about:
For his 14th birthday, Kiyomaro received a strange little boy named Gash Bell as a bizarre gift from his father. Kiyomaro soon discovers that there's more to Gash than his dad ever realized--Gash is a mamodo child with magic powers that are unleashed by reading spells from a mysterious red book...and there are 99 other kids like Gash who must fight one another to become the king of the mamodo world!
Flame of Recca: 329 Chapters
I haven't finished this one yet, am currently in the process of reading it. I like it so far so I am putting it on this list. Here it is what it is about:
Becoming a ninja is just a childhood dream for sixteen-year-old Recca, until a fateful encounter reveals he has inherited ninja powers, including the ability to wield fire! As Recca learns to master the ancient ways of his ancestors, he is drawn to protect a mysterious girl named Yanagi...
Please feel free to add or criticize my choices, I just thought some of you might like them.
