    I usually don't read manga, in fact I never have before. I usually just watch some anime here and there when I was growing up. Now I'm a college student who hasn't been into it lately.

    So I ask those who know, you guys.

    What's the best Manga to read out there? If you had to pick one, where you shouldn't live without missing, which would it be and do you have any DL links or direct links where I can read it from my computer? (If possible), that would be awesome!

    Gun Smith Cats and GTO are two of my all-time favorites.
    I've seen bi-lingual GTO, but I have no idea if there is an english version of GSC.

    www.boxtorrents.com don't know if they have sign ups open or not anymore.

    if you've seen the akira movie, i'd suggest the manga for it. 6 volumes.
    pro: movie stops at the end of volume 2
    con: you learn how much they changed and cut of vol1 and 2 to make a 2 hour movie.


    other great series that are huge:


    action:
    ranma 1/2 30+ volumes (never saw much of the anime)
    flame of recca 40+ volumes (anime stops about 1/3 into the manga)


    ecchi/harem:
    love hina ~20 volumes (don't you dare ever watch the anime)
    kimura orange road ~30 volumes (animated in the 80s)


    shoujo: or i am bored by action and ecchi/harem and want to read something different that i will never admit to anyone in real life.
    please save my earth 12 volumes (anime was canceled during production 6 ep)
    anything by clamp.


    other great series that are still being drawn and fan translated:

    hajine no ippo - boxing some 20 years old and 800+ chapters now still going strong.
    berserk - action never got into it people love it though since its still going strong after ~15 years so far.
    glass mask - female rivalry acting, 30 years old and still being drawn monthly. 1/2 is translated so far groups are pretty slow with this series.
