Odd name right?

Well, I bought this book which gives reviews on all licensed manga till 2007. And I made this list of "Manga's to read" from there.


Manga --- Manga-ka

Cromartie High School --- Eiji Nanaka
2001 Nights --- YUkinobu Hoshino
A1 A' --- Moto Hagio
Abandon the old in Tokyo --- Yoshiro Tatsumi
Apocalypse Meow --- Motofumi Kabayushi
Adolf --- Osamu Tezuka
Apocalypse Zero ---Takayuki Yamaguchi
Area 88 --- Kaoru Shintani (I think this will be VERY tough to find all volumes)
Ashen Victor --- Yukito Kishiro
Barefoot Gen --- Keiji Nakawaza
Berserk --- Kentaro Miura (Very violent, I hear?)
Chiyuki Misaki --- Yuji Iwakara
Clover --- CLAMP
Comics Underground Japan - Variuos Artistes. (A collection of underground artists - underground artists are the guys who haven't yet caught their bit of fame)

Devilman --- Go Nagai
Disappearance Diary --- Azuma Hideo
Domu: A Child's Dream --- Katsuhiro Otomo
The Drifting Classroom --- Kazuo Umezu
The Four Immigrants Manga --- Yositaka Kiyama
Golgo 13 --- Takao Saito
GTO --- Tohru Fujisawa
Japan as view by 17 creators --- Various Artists (Name implies the meaning. Self explanatory)
Joan --- Yoshisaku Yasuhiko
Junko Mizuno's Princess Mermaid --- Junko Mizuno
Lone Wolf And Cub --- Kazuo Koike (A team up, if I remember correctly, one to to the story, and one for the art, like in Crying Freeman.)

Lupin III --- Monkay Punch
Maison Ikkokou --- Rumiko Takahashi
Mars 3 --- Fuyumi Soryo
Monokuro Kinderbook --- Kan Takahama
Ode to Kirihito --- Osamu Tezuka
Phoenix --- Osamu Tezuka
The Push Man --- Yoshihiro Tatsumi
Redprowling Demon --- Toshimitsu Shimizu
Sanctuary --- Sho Fumimura, Ryoichi Ikegami
Shojo Beat's Manga Artist Academy --- Various

Testa Rotho --- Kei Sanbe
Town of evening calm, country of cherry blossoms --- Various
To Terra --- Keiko Takayami (famous anime, right?)
Vagabond --- Takehiko Inoue
Venus War --- Yoshikazu Yasuhiko
Wounded Man --- Kazuo Koike


Yes, as you may have noticed, quite a few names repeated. Specially Osamu Tezuka. These are the manga that book I mentioned, gives a rating of 4 out of 5. (He hasn't mentioned 4 or 5, so I'm assuming 5, might be out of 4 for all I know.) I chose only those whose summaries looked like they'd have good story lines.

If anyone read these and found some lame storyline, do mention it to me. I haven't yet got around to DO the finding. Silly Assignments of mine for college. Will be doing so by this month, last week. Or otherwise next month.

Come to think of it... theres quite a number of titles up there I havent read... but they all sound like they would be tough to find... but the ones I have read from up there are definitely all 5 star material...

Review over the above listed with respect to mangatraders.

Obviously, PRESENT means that they have the series and it is "ongoing".
FULL means they have the full manga.
LICENSED means its licensed, so they have only part stuff
DISCONTINUED seems to mean hat the scanslators have given up on the scanslations

Cromartie High School --- Eiji Nanaka (PRESENT)
2001 Nights --- YUkinobu Hoshino (FULL)
Apocalypse Meow --- Motofumi Kabayushi (FULL)
Adolf --- Osamu Tezuka (FULL)
Area 88 --- Kaoru Shintani (PRESENT)
Barefoot Gen --- Keiji Nakawaza (PRESENT)
Devilman --- Go Nagai
The Drifting Classroom --- Kazuo Umezu (DISCONTUNED SCANSLATIONS)
GTO --- Tohru Fujisawa (I think it is DISCONTINUED but they have not mentioned it)
Lone Wolf And Cub --- Kazuo Koike (PRESENT)
The Push Man --- Yoshihiro Tatsumi (I think what I dwnlded was the 'The Push Man' by Osamu Tezuka, will get back to you on that one.)
Sanctuary --- Sho Fumimura, Ryoichi Ikegami (FULL)
Testa Rotho --- Kei Sanbe (FULL)
To Terra --- Keiko Takayami (FULL)
Vagabond --- Takehiko Inoue (PRESENT)
