Mmm... I don't know, I've read many mangas... and many were just perfect!  :love: Others, well... were just horrible to read!  :omg: Boring too. :yawn: Maybe, I really liked Meru Puri or Backstage Prince... and Black Bird! ^^

Probably Liar Game. The concept was interesting, fascinating even, and the plot had that 'smart' feeling to it.

Liar Game would be the only one I've come across, it's somewhat interesting and arduous to predict.
Bakuman very nearly makes this category, but it has gone downhill...
You were right about me being wrong and wrong about you being right.

A lot of mangas have good plots and art at the beginning, but the longer they become usually the authors lose focus (like, procrastination I guess?)  >:(

first parts of Inuyasha !!!
Anatolia Story
Legend of Nereid [yaaa they are VERY old]

Newer Chinese manhuas:
Billion Princess
Real Fake Princess
Divine Melody --> the project I'm translating XD
Spirit of the Ocean (not yet translated :O)  :love:

Yes, you are right... authors lose focus!  >:(... OH! I'm currently reading Anatolia Story, I like it!)  :love: Also, sometimes you are not able to keep up with the story because you have to wait too long for updates!!! (that is the case of Vampire Knight! I hate to read it because I spend hours trying to remember what happened in the last chapter!!!)  >:(

For some reason, anything Gender Bender that has comedy like 1/2 Prince, Girl Got Game (Power!) and Ouran High School Host Club, or anything supernatural like Bleach interests me more than others

I like those plots that are so weird and twisted (mostly with blood and gore Woohoo!). So an amazing manga is "Doubt", it's really freaky but is really good!
I don't really like cliche  shoujo manga that goes for long period of time. (like S.A) Argh! However, if the plot is unexpected and it blends with shoujo, I'll like it. Maybe something like Heart To Kuni Alice and maybe Medeka Box(if that's shoujo)?

Shin Angyo Onshi
Death Note (First half)
Team Medical Dragon
Shoujo Fight
Hikaru no Go
Pretty Face
Mx0 (Though it got unpopular and got a some quick ending)
Ibara no Ou
Zetman
Ubell Blatt

These are probably out of my list of 500 something complete/ongoing manga, are probably my picks as overall solid. That means I feel it had a solid plot, characters and just good overall design. As you can see, I'm not really a heavy shoujo reader xD.

1 - It was great. The main girl was great :D But the ending was... how do I say it... disappointing?
2 - I think the second half was good too, after all, he deserves to die.
6 - I tried to read it, but only managed the first and last chapter. Don't get me wrong, it's hilarious, but I don't like that type of manga where there is no plot or love development.
7 - The ending was really absurd. It was like their studio burned to the ground in one night and they had to drop the project.


Other manga I like would be Superior, Gantz (not really for the ladies here...), Hana Yori Dango and Video Girl Ai (an old classic, really good old classic)

1. I thought the ending was a little disappointing when I first read it, but I think overtime it's kind of sunk into me and I kind of enjoy it now xD.
2. The second half was good (as in better then most manga out there), but I just didn't like how the main character seem to become 'dumb' all of a sudden. I didn't think it had the same intellectual level and planning as the first half.
6. Hahaha, I'm sort of a sucker for gender benders (male -> female). Though probably looking back, wouldn't classify it as my all time perfect favourites, but it was a good read (one of the better gender benders at least D;)
7. Yeah... The series got canceled and the author had to end it in like 2 chapters or something.

I liked the first opening of Superior, but then I kind of lost interest in it (still finished it). I've read Gantz but not fully caught up (300ish somewhere I think). It's a good read, but not one of my favourites, I'd prefer something more a long the lines of Berserk. I have Video Girl Ai on my to read list, just haven't got around to it.

Though if anyone likes gender benders (male -> female), one of my personal favourites is Yubisaki Milk Tea. Though what's interesting is I like because I hate it (It'll probably make sense a little if you've read it). It's probably one of first one that really deals well with the mentality of main character as he plays his male role and then cross dresses and pretends to be a girl.

Ohhhhhh that reminds me of some other ones that I really like as well:
My Girl (SAHARA Mizu) (I just love the tone in this manga)
Tokage (Omg I listed a non-shounen/seinen for once :O)

Anything to do with history. (I'm a history junkie) My faves always have something to do with history. Anatolia Story and Divine Melody are masterpieces in my opinion. Historical mangas are just so much fun. List: Divine Melody, Pearl Grudge, Anatolia Story, Tale of Genji, manga from the 70s, Count Cain, etc.

I never understood how people can like historical themes... I dislike it, no matter if it is an anime, a manga, a movie or a book, the historical theme is something that can never appeal to me. XD
