I'm not a huge manga fan, but there are a few that I highly enjoy.
My bread and butter is Ranma 1/2. I discovered the anime in 1997 or 1998 -- back when it was the go-to franchise for newly enlisted Anime fans -- and I just fell in love with the concepts and overarching storyline. I've been slowly collecting the manga over the years -- I'm up to the 14th or 15th graphic novel -- and I've been enjoying it even more than the Anime (which is unfortunately padded to the brim with filler episodes later on).
Perhaps not surprisingly, I've recently started reading One Pound Gospel. It's by the same woman who writes Ranma 1/2, so while the tone and situation are quite different, the general feel is the same. At the heart of the story is a tale of romance in the midst of taboo circumstances -- the same basic setup in many of Rumiko Takahashi's stories -- and in a way I think it works a lot better than the romance in Ranma 1/2 because there's less tension between the leads and a bit less slapstick. I really hope they release the live-action TV series on DVD in region 1, because I'm quite interested in seeing it.
I've purchased the first three Ultimate Editions of Fruits Basket. These are lovely big hardbacks, and while I've only read the first two, I anticipate the day when I sit down to read the third. It's a funny, sweet, and sometimes quite dramatic piece of fiction. Very character driven. I wish they'd stop pushing back the Fourth Volume. I'm beginning to think they've dropped the line entirely and I'll have to finish reading it in standard graphic novel format.
I haven't read a lot of it, but I really like Azumanga Daioh. I'd liken it to the Japanese manga equivalent of Seinfeld or Friends, in that it's a story about absolutely nothing. There are no monsters or power levels or any of the usual things you find in manga. It's very simply about a group of girls attending high school. It's funny, sometimes raunchy, but always sweet and easy to dip in and out of without feeling like you've missed an epic story arc.
I've got a stack of other assorted manga that I've begun but not finished -- among them Dragon Ball, InuYasha and Naruto -- and while one day I'm likely to get around to buying and reading them all, I'd like to finish reading the other franchises that I'm really into first.
Incidentally, has anyone given Takahashi's newest series, Rin-ne, a look? I'm timid about starting another Takahashi series before I finish Ranma 1/2, One Pound Gospel, and InuYasha, but I am interested to know if it's any good.
