    Definitley Yakitate Japan! Seriously underrated manga, don't think it's bad because it's about baking, it's one of the best I've read.

    Also Hajime no Ippo, about boxing.. Great manga, it's been translated up to volume 39 so it should last just a little while.. :p

    Oh, and both of these can be found at SnoopyCool's site.. ;-)

    I haven't personally read this one too much yet but I heard it's really great.

    Berserk manga. I think that it's at least worth of a shot. :)

    Samurai action.
    None that I know of.

    Story of Manji, a Samurai cursed with immortality. Can't say anymore without spoiling the story. If you're looking for awesome artwork (almost photo-like when Samura wants to) and swordfights, do yourself a favor.

    My favorite manga is Full Moon wo Sagashite. Selene Scans just recently finished subbing the whole series...Yeah that's where my avatar came from. ^^ It's shoujo, so it's mostly a romance series. I'm not usually into that lovey-dovey stuff but this manga I really like because it's about chasing your dreams and...it's so sad! The drawings are top-notch and there's humor too. I really recommend it unless you're a guy who hates shoujo...oO

    Hm... Black Cat is good. It's kind of a cross between Cowboy Bebop and Trigun. Its about bounty hunters and such. Great action scenes. Mahou Sensei Negima is good too. Its by the same mangaka as Love Hina. Some of the characters are similar too. And again, Yakitate Japan! is awesome. Lots of hilarious moments. :)

    My recommendations

    I haven't read much latley but here are a few:

    One Piece (Action, Humor, Adventure) I give this a 9.7/10
    Pretty Face (Romance, Comedy) 9/10. I think this is better than Love Hina and most other manga of that sort.
    Hunter X Hunter (Action, Adventure, etc) Around a 9/10

    Hmm, I'll think of more later.

    Some manga that is funny is Azumanga Daioh- Hilarious manga about a bunch of girls in high school. The manga that I'm reading right now is Flame of Recca and it is a pretty good action manga about ninjas.

    I'll definitely recommend "Monster" by Naoki Urasawa. It's about a young doctor called Tenma who saves the life of a little boy... not knowing that he helped a terrible demon to survive (not a demon in the sense of fantasy, but a demon in the sense of "really bad human" ;-)). Tenma is soon framed for the murders that Johan, the boy, is responsible for, and he then starts to travel around to search Johan and kill him while trying to escape from a neurotical police detective who is obsessed with catching him.

    It's a little clich?-ridden at times (especially the way they present germany XD), but definitely a breathtaking thriller.

    I would definately recommand :

    - One Piece
    - Monster
    - Bleach

    These are my favorites at the moment.

    Then, depending on your tastes, you may like GTO and Bremen.

    Bleach (Refer to Tazmo's post)
    One Piece (Null)
    Eyeshield 21 (Toriyama's World)

    These are currently my favorites. I'm also thinking of getting into Deathnote, since everyone who reads it says it's good.
