    My absolute favorite is Girl Friends because I'm a total shoujo-ai nerd. I just love how sweet it is and everything is just an archetype but I don't care because I love those archetypes and a bunch of shoujo-ai anime and manga take influence from this these days and it's just great.

    My other shout out is to Hourou Musuko because I am trans and sad and it's like the only good trans manga ever.

    As you might guess from my username, One Piece. It might not be the best in single criterias (like, there are probably mangas with better art), but the overall product is something that I have not been able to experience in any other media.

    Fruits Basket is my all time favorite manga. I read it in high school ans recently grabbed the special editions and reread it. Im likely to reread them again in a year or two. I just love the whole set up and the manga holds up now even with the nostalgia attached to it.

    I also really like My Hero Academia and Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki Kun (I cant remember the English name for it. Something like monthly girls Nozaki? Not sure). There's oodles more but I'd like to find more manga that's 100% complete that way I dont have to wait so much hah.

    I don't read a lot of manga but Molester Man is my favourite. It's a short manga about an otaku who is mistaken for a stalker and arrested. I just love how simply and comedically story is portrayed.

    I also enjoyed Mob Psycho 100. I really like one's art style.

    My Favorites are Spirit Circle and Akira.

    Spirit Circle: It's about a girl and a boy who meet each other in middle school. The girl instantly hates the boy so much she wants to murder him. Turns out they've lived 7 past lives where they have met. Each past life is a satisfying self contained story, usually very moving ones. The girl remembers all of them, the boy remember none of them. Before the girl kills the boy, she wants him to remember all his past lives to understand why he deserves to die.

    Akira: if you've only seen the movie, you really need to read the manga. The movie was basically 1/3rd or less of the story. If you liked the movie at all, then you owe it to yourself to read the manga and experience the entire story.

    I love Jojo and part 7 especially is phenomenal. If anybody has considered getting into jojo and doesn't know where to start, I highly recommend going straight to part 7 (the story is unrelated to the previous parts in any way). You can check out a translated version of the colored version of the manga here

    Tower of god.

    The universe around the story seems to be huge. Loads of characters I always want to learn more about. The art quality has gone up a tonne compared to when it first started so that is interesting to see to.

    I'm not super attached to it being my favorite, but it's been Bakuman for a while. It's like taking the structure, tropes, and style of the more high quality battle shounen manga and making it into a (semi-autobiographical + from the mangaka that did Death Note) story about making manga and the competition that goes into being published in Jump.

    It's very well made in any traditional way you'd judge it, but it mostly is a huge box checker for me: I love the typical shounen structure, I love art about art making, and I love art that never forgets its own medium and would not work as well anywhere else.

    Kakukaku Shikajika
    It's about a young girl who wants to become a painter, and finds a old man who forces her to paint for hours a day until she gets accepted into an art school. It's autobiographical, and the scope of the manga goes well beyond a simple synopsis. Highly recommend.

    Also everything written by Tatsuki Fujimoto (Fire Punch esp.).
