Major Motoko! I have yet to come across a character that can remotely touch the pure badassness that she embodies.

Barbara Tarn (barbaragtarn) Ryo Saeba (because he's funny)
Video Girl Ai
Mr Yo a.k.a. Crying Freeman (drool!)
Grifis of Berserk
OK, maybe that's it. But I love everything drawn by Hojo or Ikegami, no matter the story! ;)

JaeRavenClaw (angelouspeacock) I always have and always will love Sailor Moon. she was my first anime and I collect just about everything I can with Sailor Moon, including writing fan fiction.


message 9: by Meghana (new)

Meghana (megsnewcar) Tooooo many! I love all of the characters in Kimi ni Todoke a lot, though, so I'm going to pick that whole ensemble: Kazehaya, Sawako, Ryuu, Chizu and Ayane.

message 17: by Hannah (new)

Hannah @Jennifer it's okay XD why is this thread suddenly about milk all of a sudden? Does it have to do with FMA?


message 18: by Anna (Bananas) (new)

Anna (Bananas) | 758 comments There seem to be a lot of female Manga fans and I'm curious, what is the appeal? What do you like about it?I've just never read any and don't know much about it. Same thing on Anime.
I looooove comic books though.


message 19: by Lashya (new)

Lashya Wilson | 94 comments ALL OF MINE Are from the Bleach Manga/Anime Series.

My Overall Favorite Male is Shunsui Kyouraku.
My Overall Favorite FeMale is Sui-Feng or Soi-Fon, whatever the pronunciation is !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dimah | 8 comments Just one? Aww shucks.
Well, probably Prince Ludwig from Kaori Yuki's Ludwig Kakumei.


message 21: by Jennifer (new)

Jennifer | 133 comments @Hanna

Yes, it's an FMA thing. =)

@Annaloree

I love it for a lot of the same reasons that I love comic books: the artwork, the story, the characters. But honestly I've not read very much Manga. I'm kindof a newbie on that. But for starters, its just a lot of fun to read a book backwards and in black and white. Of course there is a lot more to it than that. Maybe I should let one of the experts answer that. =)

What would you recommend for starting out?

I got started on Fruits Basket. I love the characters and the story line is very sweet and fun. It's also a bit dark. You should give it a try. :)

Atm (aryes) | 21 comments I LOVE ALL Manga characters i would need 20 pages to list the characters i like. :)

I like the less manga-ish, I guess, as both Ikegami and Hojo don't have a true manga stile (Ikegami draws like Hong Kong artists).
I used to love shounen-ai, but now I don't like them anymore - boooring, seme/uke stories! ;)


message 27: by Anna (Bananas) (new)

Anna (Bananas) | 758 comments Oh no Barbara, you lost me there. I barely know what manga is! :)

Chimney, holy crap, 20 volumes? Well, if I like the art I'll dive in regardless. I do love romance in books and comics. That always keeps me interested in a story. I like a weird or interesting hook. Anything to do with fairy tales. Examples: Fables, Preacher, Y: The Last Man, Saga, Mind the Gap, Kabuki.


message 28: by Anna (Bananas) (new)

Anna (Bananas) | 758 comments Those all sound good Chimney. Thank you again!


message 29: by Anna (Bananas) (new)

Anna (Bananas) | 758 comments Nice! An employee at my comic shop recommended Fables to me. It took a couple books for me to get really into it but it quickly became a favorite. They use so many different characters from fables and fairy tales and even nursery rhymes, from all different countries, everyone from Snow White to Robin Hood to Baba Yaga. And when you find out who the big bad villian of the series is, it's amusing but it works really well.


message 30: by Anna (Bananas) (new)

Anna (Bananas) | 758 comments Also, the cover artist, James Jean, is a favorite now. He did something like 77 covers I think.

shounen-ai are m/m comics written by women for women. So if you like slash, for example, you might enjoy shounen-ai. If you're not in the m/m written by women for women, just ignore the suggestion! ;)
Video Girl Ai is a fairly short manga and it's a sweet love story with a virtual girl (not shounen-ai). I don't recommend getting started on City Hunter and it's spin offs, or you'd never end! ;)
Oh, and I love "Y last man too"! :) *hides from manga-lovers on this thread*

I'm getting into m/m novels so no problem there. Thanks for the recs.
Yeah, another Last Man fan!

message 49: by Jennifer (new)

Jennifer | 133 comments Komui? Haha! He's funny. My sister likes him because the voice actor that plays him in the anime (English dub) is the same as Sebastian from Black Butler.
