Question New Manga

I know this is not about anime but it is close enough. I am reading three manga series right now. The three are GTO, Chobits and Real Bout Highschool. For those keeping score GTO is my favriote out of the three and I recommend it to manga fans who havent already read it. The only problem is every time I go to the store they dont have the next books I need. Is there any other good manga series that anyone can suggest for me that I should start.

Trigun (and Trigun Maximum) manga, by Yasuhiro Nightow is great, and One Piece manga, by Eiichiro Oda is probably my fave ever. I suggest you to go with either one of those two series, which are entertaining and fun and also have some deep heartbreaking moments. I'd say Evangelion too, just to mention the same old stuff over and over again, but since I don't think the whole series has been published in Japan yet, and also considering the anime is much better, I'm not sure it'd be a good pick, compared to the other two. Other good choices are mangas by Tsukasa Hojo. Any of them it's ok, but you must like the genre, which is more "realistic", so you could not like it much.

But anyways, I've heard Chobits is really good. I haven't read it yet, but everyone seems to be so fond of it... There must be a reason behind that!

Yes, those are really good manga, but I think stormshadow is reading English manga, am I wrong? GTO, Chobits, and Real Bout High School are translated into English but I don't think the Trigun or One Piece manga are translated yet.

I can't really help you out because I don't read the English translated manga, so I don't know many of the titles that are out. If you like racing stuff, there's Initial D which I believe is translated. I'm sure someone else can help you out more than me.

Though I didn't read the manga, I saw episodes 1-3 and it's not all that great, IMO. The manga might be better, but there's nothing too spectacular about this series. But that's just my opinion because a large number of people are attached, both in Japan and US.

There is thios one Manga/Comic series comming out in the furure. It's a comic made by Tsunami and Marvel together of X-Men. It looks really cool. The drawings are bad ass, wolverine looks awesome, and i believe that they are keeping the same sort of story line, just with a few new things, and another new little addition of excelllence in the drawing department.

That's all i got, sorry.

I wasn't thinking about the translation problem, since where I live they're both available in translated editions Sorry!
