What Mangas (and Manwhas, if we want to be nationalists, though I prefer to just call them all Mangas). Are you currently reading? Are they ongoing, or have they finished and you're just in the process of reading? Which have you completed and how did you like them?

I'm currently following Bleach, Naruto, the Breaker, Cage of Eden (ecchi warning), and Freezing (also ecchi warning). Though I might drop Freezing, it hasn't been going anywhere lately.

I also use to be following D.Grey Man, but need to get back into that one.

Are they ongoing, or have they finished and you're just in the process of reading?

These ones are all still ongoing.

Which have you completed and how did you like them?

Yu Yu Hakusho was very good, but the ending absolutely sucked monkey nads. It seemed as if the writter just said "fvck this" and ended it in 3 weeks. I was actually mad at the ending, not just disappointed.

Inuyasha was pretty good too, and it had a fairly good ending. It tied things up nicely at the end there.

Psyriens was great, a little too much "good guys don't die" in it, but not like others. The time traveling in it really messes with you, but allows for the cool plot twists.

Alive - the final evolution is bar my favorite. The concept and what they did with it were great, plus they didn't mind having people die.

The only one I've read some of Spice and Wolf, and thats just because I was so addicted to the show that I had to see all media sources of it.

Otherwise, I mostly stuck to video.

I didn't know that there was a Spice and Wolf manga.

Another that I read that I forgot about was Bloody Monday. That won was pretty good, though a bit different. It focused around a hacker, and so problem solving was a little different.

Naruto Shippuden is awesome, and still ongoing. I don't actually read the Manga's though, I watch the animes, which I think are a better mode of entertainment.

Apart from occasionally catching up on the big three (when I need to turn off my brain) Naruto, Bleach and One Piece, Spice and Wolf and Berserk are the two main ones I read. Berserk is fvcking awesome and ongoing, Spice and Wolf is old and finished but awesome and long as hell.

The first manga I ever read was Death Note and I loved it(besides a lot of the second part, save the final volume). Right now the only manga I read is the Liar Game and I don't read it all the time, just when I'm bored.

Actually, it looks like it might have split from the manga (Full Metal Alchamist is another one I forgot, both Anime and Manga are good, but very different).

You're right, though it looks like they are preparing for the upcoming war.

Yeah, filler. I remember ages ago watching the Naruto episodes and wondering why the quality dropped so drastically every now and then.

Upcoming war? What? We're on episode 100 in the english dubbed anime. Its about Orochimaru controlling the 3 tails through this child, and him sending this crystal lady to protect the child.

omg, dubs. So lame. Forget it then, you're less than a third of the way through the plot so far. Seriously, watch anime subbed. The English voice actors in Naruto are awful, especially for Naruto himself. Once you get used to it you'll realise just how much better anime is in the original Japanese.

No way. I hate those annoying japanese voices. They all sound the same, and they all sound weird. I also hate reading. I once tried going subbed but it just ruined the story. I kept missing things because I was too busy reading what they said. Dubbs are better, and the American voices make more sense in my opinion.

If you read the Manga, you can go at your own pace. And if you feel confused, you can go back and re-read as much as needed. And, you can put whatever voices in that you want! I like to have Naruto sound like a frogman, lol.

lol, each to their own I guess. Personally I find the substandard voice actors and poor lip-syncing unbearable, and I have no trouble reading subs while paying attention to everything else at the same time: if anything I find it increases immersion. Still, I understand why you'd want to hear it in your native language.

You're soo far behind in the plot though. I could ruin literally everything that will happen in the next 150 episodes for you.

He honestly does in the American version. I'm not even exaggerating. This woman does Naruto's voice in the dubbed version:

lol, you could ruin the next three years of episodes. That wouldn't be nice, but looking at the guy on your Avatar (is that Gin from Bleach?), he just might do it.

Yup, Gin. My favourite Bleach character, creepy looking badass that he is (was, I guess ¬¬ ).

Another one I'm reading: Blue Exorcist. It's an odd combination of Christian fiction and shonen. The protagonist is the son of satan and priests are basically warrior monks with magical holy powers who fight against the demons of hell who invade earth. Pretty fun stuff.
