This week’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt is a freebie so I decided to highlight some of my favorite manga series since it’s not often those come up in my other Top Ten Tuesday posts.
Library Wars by Kiiro Yumi: If I have to pick one manga series as a favorite, it’s Library Wars. It has a good blend of action and relationship tension. I love the characters and relate a lot to the main one, Kasahara. Plus, it’s about books and defending the library and fighting for the freedom to read!
Fullmetal Alchemist by Hiromu Arakawa: This was one of the first manga series I ever read, so it’ll always be a favorite. I love Ed and Al and all the rest of the characters (except Gluttony, he’s the worst). I love the story and the world-building. And the ending! The ending is so perfect. It’s just all so good.
Barakamon by Satsuki Yoshino: This series can be a little silly at times, but I love it. It’s fun and cute and heartwarming. It’s also different than other series I’ve read.
The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya by Nagaru Tanigawa: For science-fiction lovers, Haruhi is one of the best. The cast of characters is great and I love all their crazy adventures and the weird stuff that happens around them. Kyon’s attitude toward everything is super relatable.
Toradora! by Yuyuko Takemiya: This manga makes me laugh. It’s so over-the-top at times, but that’s why it’s so great. I love the characters and their ridiculous shenanigans.
Death Note by Tsugumi Ohba: This one is a bit darker and more psychological than the rest of this list, but it’s so interesting. Also, L is the best.
Attack on Titan by Hajime Isayama: I still need answers! This was popular a few years back and it’s still good. I love the resilience of the characters and the hope they bring to their broken world.
Love Com by Aya Nakahara: This was also one of the first series I read and finished. It’s super funny and cute and of course ridiculous. Plus, it’s all about a tall girl!
The Promised Neverland by Kaiu Shirai: I don’t usually care for horror stories, but this one is interesting. The concept is so crazy, and it keeps me guessing.
Silver Spoon by Hiromu Arakawa: Since I love FMA so much, I decided to see what else the author had created and found Silver Spoon. I wasn’t sure if I’d like it, but I’ve grown to like the characters and the different kind of story being told. Plus, it’s interesting to read all about agriculture!
