Re: Favorite Mangaka?
This is actually a difficult question for me.
While I do like Urasawa, I'm at the beginning of 20thBC manga, as you know. I've never checked out Monster, but I had read Pluto. Having said so, the only manga of his I've read completely is Pluto. So...Urasawa is cool, but I need to read more from him--- I'm getting the feeling he might get a special spot in my "heart"
Ookubo Atsuchi only has a remarkable work (Soul Eater) so it'd be kinda unfair to choose him
The other one that comes to my mind is Takei Hiruyuki. I loved Shaman King, I'm liking the spin off Shaman King Flowers....Karakuridoji Ultimo is pretty much da bomb, but since it's not available on the net, I can't tell if the story up to the 8th volume is still gud ( I only got to read till volume 2...I want to buy volume 3 but I keep spending all my money on food ). Tumbor is said to be gud as well tho I hadn't read it. This leaves me with one manga from his work...and again that's kinda unfair
HAHA Not to metion that Kato Kazue does a pretty gud job with Ao no exorcist (but I had only read this from her work) and Toboso Yana has some of the most beautiful and detailed pages on her Kuro$hitsuji manga.
Asano Inio isn't bad him self...>.>
Conclusion Even if it sounds ridiculous coming from me, I have to read even more manga to choose my fav author (the trick is in reading more works of the same author ).
