Mine is Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro. It's one of the slightly more recent Shounen Jump titles that's managed to carry on past a few chapters and with the most recent story arc, it's become my favorite out of everything in SJ currently.

Unfortunately, it's gotten no attention that I've seen from the english Shonen Jump, and there's no plans for an anime to date.

After that, my favorites are Muhyo to Rouji, D.Gray-man, One Piece, Jojo's Bizarre Adventure and Hunter x Hunter.

Kochira Katsushika-ku Kamearikouen-mae Hashutsujo- feels something a seinen manga reader would read, eh, still great and probably oldest SJ title there. like back even in the mid 70's or something. 145 volumes oh yea!

Zombie Powder and Bleach- yea love Tite's artwork. and character designs

Houshin Engi- I love this series and I'm so glad it's coming here in USA!!!!!!!!

Fist of the North Star - yea it actually a SJ title believe it or not!

Bastard!!- Well it's in Ultra Jump now but it used to be in SJ.

Shadow Lady- probably one SJ title that Dark horse liscense. Boy that series is so hilarious.

Roruoni Kenshin- I always love this series as I was getting into anime. one of my personal fav that attach to me. Oro?

Pretty Face- made me laugh my *** off.

Mind Assassin- I read some of it and it pretty tense and pyscological for a shonen series. may only be 5 volumes but it was great.

Mazinger Z- this series is one of the classic series by great Go Nagi. Probably
first mecha series he did and that started the mecha genre in anime, or it could be Gigantor...eh whatever lol.

Kimagure Orange Road-It's a great romance comedy series (not like 100% Strawberry which i hate) onder why Viz never bother to pick this one up.

DNA2- no not DNAngel which i hate but DNA2 which has good artwork that I love.

City Hunter- I love reading it when it was on Raijin. Too bad they ran out of business. boo ho ho T_T.

Barefoot Gen, this is an amazing classic and is one of the best series i've read about world war 2 in japan. great.

JoJo's Bizzare Adventure- yea Joe Jostar is my fav! and i want to check out the spin off series Steel Ball Run

these i wish to see:
Cat's Eyes- only for the sexy girls hehehe lol
Jigoku Sensei Nube - old school cliche manga, heh
Harenchi Gakuen - an old series by Go Nagi
Sakigake!! Otoko Juku - it has "yannki" or "Bosozuku" guys which i always love to read on.

Steel Ball Run's pretty good from what I've seen of it... It reminded me a bit of Parts 1 and 2, and was a nice change after part 6 (which was my least favorite).

It's also the only one to date that stars someone not connected to the Jostar family (as far as I know), which is pretty interesting.

30th August 2006, 1:15 AM
I personally found Part 6 to be better than Part 4, but that's just me.

Yu-Gi-Oh (first seven volumes)
Yu Yu Hakusho (I wonder if people, really hate this, but Chapter Black. It is one of the best anime/manga arks ever.)
One Piece
Shaman King
Bleach (it has been produced in volume)
Dragonball( (dont ask)

BattleFranky~40
30th August 2006, 1:35 AM
Yu Yu Hakusho (I wonder if people, really hate this, but Chapter Black. It is one of the best anime/manga arks ever.)
Yes, the anime is quite good. However, the manga suffers from art that looks like complete ***.



Bleach (it has been produced in volume)

Yes, 23 volumes

Silver Dragonair
30th August 2006, 2:04 AM
Yeah, the art isn't that good in the manga, I also know it being made in 1990, doesnt excuse it. It had a good story, though. Awesome villans that had some motive behind something. Like, Rando wanted all the psychic powers. Suzaku wanted, demons to have free passage to the living world. Toguro, he just wanted to fight some strong opponents. He's one of the few bad guys with honor, to some extent.

Sensui, is one of the most badass villans ever. He had six other people working for him, had seven distinct personalities. The motive, behind his wnt to exterminate the human race, was a traumatic experience. Sensui, had a lot of character development. Had reasons, plus Sensui packed some cool powers. His band of psychics were cool also. Sniper and Doctor were my favorite. Because of the episodes, "The Doctors Disease" and, "Moving Target".

BattleFranky~40
30th August 2006, 2:08 AM
I also like Chapter Black and Sensui. But still, the manga was very... average, I guess, when compared to the anime.

Heh... other way around here, part 4 was my favorite one. XD

Not that I dislike Part 6 though, it just took me longer to get in to than the rest of the others. After they got out of the jail, it started to get a lot more enjoyable IMO.

This is something of which I can greatly agree with. (Not that I actually read it, but pretty much my entire motivation for considering it is Hiruma)

Part 2 Joeseph alone is better than anything in Parts 4 and 7, and it helps that Joeseph vs. ACDC/Wham/Cars is one of the best fights in manga ever.

31st August 2006, 2:47 AM
Hmm...

Naruto
Hunter x Hunter
Eyeshield 21
Hikaru no Go
Bleach
One Piece
Dragonball (can't forget about the old classics)

The one I'm itching to read like everyone else is Death Note, but I'm so preoccupied with BECK and a few other mangas that I have no free time to read it. :x

31st August 2006, 2:48 AM
Slam Dunk :D. Wait, that's probably the only SJ title I really like!
Would put Saint Seiya, but I'd rather the anime version, since it is... less fugly.

I'm pretty sure the Older-Teen Shonen Jump Advanced manga won't make it into the Teen Shonen Jump....(No offence?)

Anyway, I love YGO, but the last story arc is kind of boring. The first few chapters are the way to go.

Others:
Death Note
D.Grey Man
Hikaru No Go
Buso Renkin

I'm a little surprised that One Peice has so many votes.....

Partially it's me being an artist, but I find the art of One Peice to be pretty bad. It's a pretty good series, but I didn't think it was THAT popular (yeah, 7 votes=popular :) )

I suppose it beats the dubbed anime by miles though o_o;

What's so bad about it? It is unique, it is fresh, and it has actually gotter better over the years, as apposed to getting worse (Naruto, Hunter x Hunter, ect.)

Are you talking about the art or the story?

I have to say, it is very unique. But it just seems like it could be better. I can't really explain it? Maybe too unrealistic? That's not quite it, but it's the closest I can think of right now.

Then again, I read Bobobo...

It does seem slightly "unrealistic" at the beginning, but it begins to stop looking cartoony during the Arlong arc.

I think what your thinking of, Wheeler Viper, is that you find the some of the characters unproportional. Yea in that sense,I can see why you say that, but if you actually look beyond the outlayer of the drawings, Oda does know who to draw. I'm not too fond of the story and all but the drawings and unique visual style holds it very well.

Hm, that's part of it I suppose (Though I have nothing against Usopp's nose XP ). But i'm kinda referring to...the world in general. One peice in general is just....odd. There is so much random stuff it it, and the story switches from funny/random to serious then back to funny again. It just doesn't seem like the right balance all the time. But in it's defence, I liked the chapters in this month's SJ.

What's great about One Piece is that it can be funny AND serious and can pull both off very well. Unlike Naruto, which has extremely immature and unfunny humor.

Naruto winning a maching by farting in his opponent's face? (I can't remember the guy's name right off) Guess I can see what you mean there.

I was about to scream Yakitate!! Japan at the top of my lungs, until i realized that it was a Shounen Sunday series. *snaps*

Then i'll have to pick Hikaru no Go, even if it's not there. It's because it made me realize that go IS fun, even if i suck a lot at it.

>>to Battle Franky: People think Saint Seiya is ugly because the character designs are dated. I'm from a generation of fans who aren't accustomed to the style.

Okay, so Naruto himself is extremely immature, but there are so many other parts that are awesome and dont even have Naruto. Naruto's a good-natured kid, but you have to remember that he's also a prankster, therefore he thinks differently from most people. Honestly, I think Naruto has gotten better as it goes on. If you think opposite, have you bothered to go past what exists in North America at this point?

Anyways, so my favorite SJ manga are:
Naruto
Death Note
One Piece

Odd. Like Oda, I grew up on Dragon Ball and enjoy it even to this day. And because of him being so inspired, he's created one helluva manga. I absolutely love One Piece to bits. The designs are unique, the story and arcs are quite good and it does something not many shounen series' do. It doesn't make the main character overwhelmingly stronger than everyone to the point where only he can fight off all the bad guys.

One Piece has quite a balance of making everyone of the protagonists useful in their own way and being able to hold their own.
Even when three of Straw Hat Pirates have powers from the Devil's Fruit.
Because of this, the balance is really well done. Unlike other shounen series' that make either the protagonist the only one capable of doing anything or make a certain group of main characters stronger and everyone else ultimately weak.

Also liking Dr. Slump.

17th September 2006, 11:17 AM

17th September 2006, 5:21 PM
I agree with Edward Elric on One Piece. It's my all time favorite series for it's story and characters. I also enjoy Black Cat,Bobo, Buso Renkin, D.Gray-man, Death Note, Dragon Ball, Reborn, Rurouni Kenshin, Shaman King and To-Love-Ru Trouble. I also might want to try Dr.Slump.;201-m;
