    Smile oneshot only

    the thread is dedicated for that type of manga
    the first one is
    vampire wing by mangaka Etorouji Shiono
    the story:
    In the not so distant future, Earth is invaded by aliens. The United Nations instates a draft, and all humans on Earth are eligible to become soldiers. Kurando Nieno is a rather scrawny high school student, scoring the lowest scores possible on the preliminary draft physical. During an air raid from the aforementioned aliens, a rather irritable black haired girl crash lands in front of Nieno and attempts to drink his blood. The United Nations air force and Eliza the vampire have selected Nieno as Eliza's delicious new food source!

    even if it is just a oneshot i think that it has potential

    and then there's
    Island (KOMI Naoshi) by KOMI Naoshi
    the story:
    A story that takes place on the day Aira turned 14, and learned the devastating truth about the island she lives on, which is completely surrounded by a huge wall...

    a very good story

    and then there's
    Apple also by KOMI Naoshi
    the story:
    The main character (the blond ponytailed guy - yeah, guy) is Aramiya Satoshi, who main ability is shapeshifting into any animal ...though at a few points he has plants growing out of him, so my guess is he can shapeshift into any living thing (including an elephant and a lion) I'm not sure if he was naturally born that way or if he was a biological experiment. Anyway, he's a pretty easygoing guy who just wants to be left alone to enjoy his solitary life in the middle of a junkyard, but apparently some army or another is always after him because of his ability, though he is able to fight off entire tank battalions before breakfast.

    I just read this:
    http://www.onemanga.com/Hello_Baby/
    Summary:
    A story of love, life, and betrayal.
    Set in a certain city, a would-be gangster wanting to be recognized takes on a dangerous offer, to kill a boss of a Yakuza.
    Interesting story that shows [spoiler] how lack of condoms can get you killed.
    Remember kids - no preggos when dealing with mafia!
    [/spoiler]
    Nice drawings, similiar to death note.

    That was helpful, that Komi Naoshi just became one of my fav authors.

    Oneshots (one volume or less, right?) I know and like...
    Noise From Tsutomu Nihei, including 3 stories.
    A scifi story of a police woman in a giant structure having to deal with an monster creating sect.
    A short scifi picture storie about... transformation?
    A scifi crime storie.

    And School Ningyo from Yoshitomi Akihito
    Story about 2 girls out to kill mermaids, to bind their loved ones.

    http://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=5741
    Present

    those 2 should be mentioned in every thread dedicated to oneshots.

    Oh yes. NOiSE is definitely the best short manga i've read.
    It's also set in the same universe as Blame!, so if you liked Blame! you're going to love NOiSE.

    -_- they are?? i thought that it's a manga that last for less than 100 page and if the story is good enough then it might end up become a full serialization, kind of like a pilot project.
    like:
    naruto oneshot.... should i even explain the story??
