Personal Manga Bests
Cutest: Yotsuba&! - a slice of life about a little girl with green hair who shows up on a young single man's doorstep and their (incredibly cute) adventures together with them and their neighbors
Most interesting: Bakuman - a manga by ohba and obata sensei, the geniuses who wrote Death*Note, about two boys who want to become manga artists together. A reality manga about making manga, fantastic art,story, characters. And, its also a romance
Most touching: A tie between two romances. 1.Kimi ni todoke - the nicest girl in class is shy and was born with looks like japanese horror tropes so everyone thinks she is scary, learns how to be confident and falls in love with great friends and boyfriend, and 2. Horimiya, a romance between a girl whos super popular at school but very plain at home, and a guy who is silent at school but has tattoos and piercings all over under his clothes. Incredibly good, makes me cry and laugh every other page
Darkest: Tokyo Ghoul, enough said. Very good though and you should read it instead of watching it
Most Artistic: An animated series called Haibane Renmei, beautiful and only one season.
The manga nobody has ever heard of but everyone should have: Psyren. Its about a phone card that takes you to another world and gives you psychic powers. I cant tell you more without spoiling things but its amazing.
Best Animated Movie: A SILENT VOICE. IF YOU TAKE ANYTHING OUT OF THIS POST, IT SHOULD BE WATCH A SILENT VOICE! Its one of the most beautiful things Ive seen in fiction, full stop.
Best Manga: Death Note. Its fantastic.
Other amazing manga include hikaru no go, hunter x hunter, toriko, black butler, chibits,
