    There's no love for manga on the Weeaboo Shit board, so I decided to create a topic for it. So, post your favorite manga, your most hated manga, the funniest manga, debate whether manga or anime is better, recommend manga, whatever. If it pertains to manga, put it here.

    I just finished Franken Fran - has anyone else read this? It's freaking hilarious. Super gory and weird, but so good. If you haven't read it, do it faggot. Any if anyone knows of manga similar to Franken Fran, please share? What are some of your favorite mangas? No animu please.

    Pics of Franken Fran for fun:

    That's one of my favorite manga. Its right up there with yotsuba and gantz. Stupidest ones are really any shoujo manga I have ever wasted my time on to read. Best art would be Air gear(shit story but good designs) and I forgot the title but its the one with robot parasites that made the fishes walk on land and infect people. Other than that I enjoy the martial arts ones too, the Baki the Grappler series especially because I've been watching the anime since I was in first grade and Vagabond(same author of Slamdunk series which had a really shitty ending).

    Gantz if you've never read it before.

    If you have and liked it there's
    psyren,
    Ichi the killer,
    Battle Royale (warning: second series sucks balls),
    hell season (freaking brutal manga)
    and Black Jack (this was by Tezuka himself).

    The only manga that I've read and actually bothered to buy and keep is either hardcore Weeb stuff or stuff that people already have.

    One manga series that I do have that I thought was pretty lulzy was One Piece, but the fact that there's like a metric fuckton of those things kind of turns me off.

    Doraemon has Futurism themes, also an early lesson for me about "This is why we can't have nice things" cause Nobita fucks up every invention Doraemon gives him. Other than that, the details on technical stuff like spaceships and cars and stuff are good (although they rarely show up)

    Yotsuba hands down is my favorite manga. As soon as I started I couldn't put it down. I also really liked Rozen Maiden. Regarding OP's post I've been wanting to read Franken Fran for a while now, I just haven't sat down and done it. I should throw it on my phone or something. My favorite guro manga is Mai-chan's Daily Life. It has a surprisingly fantastic story.
    Random others I've finished:
    • Chobits
    • Karin
    • Yomerio Choice (Funny as shit, not a single fuck is given.)
    Others I've been reading but haven't finished either because they're not done or I'm lazy:
    • Kodomo no Jikan (Again, not a single fuck is given. It's good.)
    • Liar x Liar (God I wish this would get another volume.)
    • Triage X
    And some I've never cared to start or finish:
    • HotD (I've heard the manga is much better than the show.)
    • FMA (My sister loves it, I've never really gotten into it.)
    • 666 Satan/ O-Parts Hunters (Again, something my sister loves but I've never bothered to finish. Interestingly enough, the mangaka is the brother of the guy who does Naruto, except this doesn't suck as much.)
    • +Anima (And once again, something my sister reads. She gets trolled every time she goes to buy it because they never have the one volume she needs.)

    Most mangas I come across are pretty shitty. But every now and then I find something good.

    Bakurano Ours was pretty great.

    I just started reading Franken Fran, because I trust OPs taste in manga, and it's absolutely hilarious. I especially liked the caterpillar episode. I was like "Oh what a sappy ending", click, :derp::derp::derp::derp::derp::derp::derp::derp::derp:

    Franken Fran is one of the two mangas that I care to follow currently. The other one is Dorohedoro, a fucking bizarre yet fantastic series about a guy who was turned in a lizard man by a sorcerer and now is hunting the person who hexed him into that in a world full of psychopaths and gangsters with magic powers. It has a David Lynch-esque like vibe, so I would recommend that to everyone who likes weird and surreal stuff.

    Aside those two, my other favorite mangas include Gunnm/Battle Angel Alita and Aqua Knight.

    -I have heard good things about Gantz, but when I decided I'd try it I was put off by how long it was. I'll give it another chance, though.
    -Started Psyren, started to lose interest when the story got slow, may pick it up again if just to finish it
    -Love Ichi and Battle Royale (hated the second one)
    -Did read Hell Season (totally fucked up)
    -Never heard of Black Jack, but I'll check it out :)

    I have to agree with Mai-chan, actually. I read it because I wanted to see what the fuss was about, and thought the story was actually pretty good. I was genuinely sad about Mai-chan's little pet friend, and of course at the end. Still, it was in general all kinds of fucked up.

    Bwahaha, I felt exactly the same way. I thought, this sure is a nice happy ending for everyone, how is this possible? And then of course, I turned the page. OH SHI-

    Right now I'm reading Anne Freaks, a manga about a girl who helps two guys kill people (one, his mother; and the other, some guys who killed his sister and father). I'm about halfway and so far, it's okay. Main goal is, the girl wants to kill her father, and is asking the other two guys to help. We'll see how I feel when I'm done. I also started reading a little guro, although it seems a bit too hardcore for me. I read Death Panda (Waita Uziga), and while the overall story was sweet, it was very....guro. Guess I shouldn't expect anything less. Not sure if I'll read more, we'll see. (I also read Hell Season, also fucked up.)

    Just googled it. It's called SAINT SEIYA: THE LOST CANVAS

    The new artist tried to emulate the violence. But they made everyone look bishie like that guy in some comic named Ueki. It was written by a chick. And takes place in 250 years before the original.

    There was this gory manga I found in some book store a few years ago. I can't remember the name, maybe started with an R. Basically all was normal, then some weird smell started coming from the ocean around Japan and the protagonist and his girlfriend were running around, there was a scientist and some other crap. These machines where attaching to fish and producing gassed to run, until the host died, then it latches onto another. At some point the main character's girlfriend is stuck to one and she bloats and decays, then everything else decays and the air is nasty and then it ends.

    Then there's that other manga with alien parasites. It's rather popular for the one panel where the parasite turns the main guy's arm into a penis.


    Other than that I'm currently reading Bakuman. Some random kid told me about it, so I took a gander, and it's nice. It being about a kid wanting to become a Mangaka, and he does when he's in his sophomore or junior year of high school.
    I used to want to be a comic artist or just make a living off a comic, but my style doesn't work in pen I think. And, well, it's rather seen as pathetic now...

    That'd be "Gyo" by Junji Ito.
    That's "Parasyte" by Hitoshi Iwaaki.

    On to the topic... My favorite ones that I can recall right now are:

    • Eden: It's an Endless World!
    • Dragon Head
    • Gunnm
    • Berserk
    • Anything by Furuya Usamaru and Tsutomu Nihei (The last complete works I read from them were The song of Marie and Biomega respectively)
    • I am a Hero
    • Skyhigh
    • Kamiyadori (though I found all the nudity pointless)
    • Neighbor No. 13
    • Helter Skelter
    • Fuan no Tane
    • Narutaru

    Besides you two, the rest of you read gay shit.

    IMO Battle Angel Altia is the best Manga ever made. Dorohedoro is pretty good. I am so pissed that Eden has not updated in over a year on my site. Berserk needs to update more.

    Shit that wasn't mentioned that is top tier are these mangas
