    Default Recommendations?

    Lately I've been a sucker to appealing drawings in manga. Do you guys have any recommendations?

    Ones that i find appealing:

    Air Gear (Especially Kururu)
    Hikaru no go (latter half) = Death Note = Blue Dragon [in terms of artist]
    Suzuka
    Tsubasa
    Mx0 = Pretty Face
    Yakitate Japan

    Thanks

    Tenjo Tenge to go with Air Gear, and while it's a completely different style the JoJo's Bizarre Adventures series (except the first few chapters) has very highly lauded art.

    Uryuu freaky, pale and geeky,

    This is a rec thread. Thus, I advise you to read Berserk.

    Cooler, you recommending Berserk in every single situation is very annoying.


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.

    Berserk's art isn't even the greatest. That's one criticism I have of the fans.

    Personally, I love the art styles of Tsuda Mikiyo/Zaou Taishi, Hoshino Katsura and Saenagi Ryou... but only the second draws shounen manga, and you might want to avoid Zaou Taishi's works if... er...

    Yuki Kaori and Yazawa Ai both have lovely styles but draw shoujo manga... (I wouldn't count Saenagi Ryou as a shoujo artist. Everyone looks like a man. EVERYONE.)

    Mashima Hiro... RAVE and Fairy Tail creator... I like his art style too. ^_^

    But *mostly* the first three. I always love to rant about their art~

    If you like Obata you might want to see Alive, I just started it, the art is very similar, though Obata does cloths better of course (or at least it's less generic).

    Berserk's art is excellent, though it's certainly not the typical style you would think of for manga.

    Everything Yan Kyung-Il has done (Island, Zombie Hunter, Shin Angyo Onishi) has good art, and it's somewhat like Obata's work so you should enjoy those.

    It is necessary.

    Eon, Berserk's art wasn't the greatest early on. As of right now, though, the only thing that can touch it, I'd say, is Vagabond.

    Uh... It's very detailed, but I still don't think it's the best even at this stage. Of course, it's very good, talent-wise, but I can't say I really love the art style. Although... well, I've named my favourite manga-ka when it comes to art, and only two draw things other than shoujo manga.

    Good shoujo manga, though.
