Favorite - My Top Manga

Ranked solely on my enjoyment of reading it in Japanese language.
1 Knights of the Zodiac

2 Fist of the North Star

Less filler and slightly different order of events. Even if I like the anime adaptation. The manga is definitely better. Way, way better art than the anime and most other manga series. It is without the doubt one of the best fighting shounen manga series.

3 Hellsing

The story is better as anime OVA. Manga is good, but does not deliver as much punch as the anime.

4 Tsukihime

Because Typemoon manga is much better than anime.

5 Melty Blood

Because Typemoon manga is much better than anime even in sequels.

6 Fate/Stay Night

Slightly different story line than in the older anime adaptation.

7 Girl Friends

The best yuri romance.

8 Sumire 16-sai!!

9 Sumire 17-sai!!

10 Kobato.

Light, yet touching fantasy romance and comedy.

11 Gosick
12 Superior

Interesting mix of fantasy and romance between human hero on quest to kill demon king and the girl, who is the demon king.

13 Dragon Ball Z

14 Kurohime

Tragic romance. I really enjoyed it more than I would expect.
