Correct me if I'm wrong but, isn't that a web comic?
This thread is about manga, not web comics. Even if the it has that manga style/ vibe.
I'm just saying.

If you want to, there is plenty to pick on. It did start online and it is also Korean, not Japanese. There is also the fact that it is 100% in color. However, it has been released in printed form and it's artwork is amazing, particularly the fight scenes. So you can look at this way, if someone likes shounen manga, they are probably going to enjoy reading it. On the other hand someone can dismiss it for it's format, country of orgin, or use of color and it will be their loss.

Ahh ok, nah it's not problem. I also read Korean manga or manhwa, as they like to call it. For example this one called 'Need a Girl'
I think it has fantastic art but the story has been getting a little rough, and it has way too many misunderstandings. It barely updates too.

It's kind of to be expected from a romantic, comedy and ecchi, focused manwha


But I have yet to actually read more manwha, the last one I finished reading was, Unbalance X Unbalance, the same artist from Freezing. You catch my drift?

For manga, I say anything by Suzuki Julietta (Kamisama Hajimemashita). I just love her style!
I know the thread only asked for manga, not manhwa, but I saw someone else mention it. Bride of the Water God is absolutely beautifully drawn (minus the funky proportions of the arms). The backgrounds are so detailed and Mui and Soah are drawn so meticulously and lovely.

Yeah, I have respect for the manhwa, maybe it has to do with the import being alot more competitive, but what we seem to get is extremely high quality. I often link it in with manga. Similar format (just left to right) and styling influence. Often published from same people who do north american manga. Usually sold same place, and it goes same location on my shelf.

Death Note
Pluto
Monster
Hikaru no Go

Silver Spoon and Horimiya get honorable mention.

In general, anything by Takeshi Obata and Naoki Urasawa.

beast master Yuiko Kubozuka is a high school girl who loves animals. Unfortunately, animals hate her and flee from her whenever possible. So when a new classmate, Leo Aoi, turns out to be a scary guy who resembles a wild animal than anything human, she is intrigued. Not only because Reo has an affinity with animals which she envies, but also because he isn’t the wild animal that he seems to be. He seems to hide a very sweet disposition behind his scary features.

Or so she thought. The truth is revealed when they are attacked and Leo immediately behaves like a wild animal and gets violent like a blood-thirsty animal, just to save Yuiko.

Will Yuiko be able to tame this wildest of all animals or will he be just like the others and flee from her? Or the better question, will she flee from him?


hana to akuma 15-years-ago Vivi, the demon, decided to leave the demon realm and come to the human world. There he found an abandoned baby and on a whim decided to keep it. Since then he lives together with Hana... but having a 14 year-old girl around you, is it really that simple?

Total Chapters: 58 or 8 volumes

Go look at Oh Great!'s later stuff (Air Gear after vol 15, and Biorg Trinity) also Obata Takeshi with Death Note, Bakuman, and Blue Dragon. Zet Man is another one that is pretty decent.

Honestly, it really depends on what your definition of 'good' is. What those 2 artists know how to do is use negative space (the illusion that something is drawn where it is not), correct proportions, and dynamic angles. It is something that you typically do not see most artists utilize well.

Shojo Manga stuff typically does not use any of those 3 concepts I just listed. It is very straight forward, concentrates on large eyes, very skinny bodies, and generally face focused proportions. It can look pretty, but I never feel like it is difficult to achieve.

Shonen Manga generally utilizes dynamic angles, and is 50/50 with correct proportions. One Piece, Naruto, and Bleach are more or less limited to just the dynamic angle aspect. The one shonen manga, although now it is a seinen manga, that uses negative space, dynamic angles and correct proportions quite well is ToLoveRu, especially TLR Darkness. Yabuki gets extremely creative with ecchi scenes, If you want to see masterful fanservice, totally check out TLR Darkness.

Seinen Manga is most often detail and dynamic angles. Rarely uses negative space. It is the most detailed manga though, and often gets close to realism.


Primarily though mangas with good art that I would recommend are:
1. Air Gear (Vol 15+) : That is an arbitrary number, but basically why I say this is because like half way through the manga Oh Great! just randomly decides to change his art style. In the beginning of the manga it is more typical shonen style stuff, the type of thing you would expect in Naruto or Bleach. In the second half though he becomes like super dynamic with his work, it looks really impressive. On the other hand the story of Air Gear takes a dive and it kind of feels like Oh Great! suddenly developed ADHD. He puts Obama in the manga for god's sake, as a major secondary character.

2. Biorg Trinity : Oh Great!'s newest manga, although he does not write the story. I completely do not understand this manga. It is confusing as hell. The art is really nice though, but as I said you may have to reread each chapter like 5 times to grasp what the hell is going on. It looks as if Oh Great! took the advice I posted on the internet to get someone to write for him, and decided to find someone who is even less coherent than he himself.

3. Death Note & Bakuman : Art is just as good as Oh Great!'s but Obata's stuff does not make you feel like you are on a bad drug trip. He on the other hand found someone great to write the stories for him.

4. Zet Man - Realistic and Dynamic Art style. It is one of the most detailed pieces of work I have read. Very depressing though. Mutilation and rape is a recurring theme. I can't read this manga the plot is just a downer.

5. To Love Ru Darkness - This is like borderline porn. This is probably the closest thing you can have to porn without it actually being porn. However Yabuki Kentaro does such a great job drawing nude female bodies in all of these dynamic and promiscuous poses that if you are okay with this being borderline porn, then I recommend it. The plot is simple, main character inadvertently builds a harem while getting into lucky situations with many girls. The plot barely moves along at all, there really is no suspense or mystery, honestly this is a fanservice manga.
