    Default Manga Collected Editions

    Welcome to the Manga Collected Editions thread! I've wanted to make this for a while and I'd love to help anyone get hooked on manga. I don't really have much to else say but I will try my best to keep this thread going and update it with more info. Any and all criticism is welcome (I really could use the help and advice). I will be post about new licenses as they come (with extra links about each series). I also will try to add the Japanese Publishers each Publisher is able to license from (eventually I want to add the individual magazines each Publisher tends to License from).

    Rules:
    1. Discussion of ongoing series: As this is a Collected Edition thread, try to keep detailed discussion of the weekly & monthly releases of series to a minimum. The New Manga/Anime Lounge Thread (http://community.comicbookresources....a-Anime-Lounge) would be a better place for that.


    Licensed Manga
    Licensed Series List http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/ency...d=1&sort=title. This list isn't up to date, but it's the best I could find.

    If you don't find a series listed there check baka-updates (http://mangaupdates.com). (Google the name of the series + baka updates and the series listing should be the first link you see).

    So should we begin by not listing the big 3/or so of Shounen? How about manga that hits the double digits but doesn't go past 40?

    finally someone since I couldn't muster up the energy for it. Cheers!
    Also, I think it would be nice to have recommendations for manga newbies, essential readings and what's the current state of their english translations.

    I'm currently reading this and it's very good. I need vol 2. soon.

    VIZ introduction:

    The Perfect Edition
    Everyone faces uncertainty at some point in their lives. Even a brilliant surgeon like Kenzo Tenma is no exception. But there’s no way he could have known that his decision to stop chasing professional success and instead concentrate on his oath to save peoples’ lives would result in the birth of an abomination. The questions of good and evil now take on a terrifyingly real dimension.
    Years later, in Germany during the tumultuous post-reunification period, middle-aged childless couples are being killed one after another. The serial killer’s identity is known. The reasons why he kills are not. Dr. Tenma sets out on a journey to find the killer’s twin sister, who may hold some clues to solving the enigma of the “Monster.”

    Just ordered the HC complete editions of Gyo and Uzumaki from Junji Ito! I saw some pictures of them the other day and they look like really nice collections. Only read a few short stories from Ito so I'm excited for these.

    VIZ introduction:
    My favorite anime of all the time, but I have no doubt the manga is as good if not better. Urasawa is a manga god.

    I just got them as well, only a couple chapters into Uzumaki and I love it (I find it funny more than creepy, so maybe that says a lot about me).

    Depends, Bleach tanked after Aizen was defeated but I feel up until then it is worth reading, and I've loved all of One Piece and the 700 or so chapters of Case Closed I've read (I haven't purchased the volumes yet, because I hate the Americanized versions of the character names).

    I'll do this but I'll need some input from others. A lot of series I loved or started with like the Shounen Jump Big 3, I wouldn't recommend as starting points. Some others like Yu Yu Hakusho and Rurouni Kenshin I've only watched or haven't read since I was a kid.

    Negima is a personal favorite of mine and like One piece, Naruto, Fairy Tail, and Bleach (I think), its gotten the 3-in-1 collection right now.

    You should read Slam Dunk. It's a great basketball manga and it's very funny too. The main character is an idiot who doesn't know anything about basketball, but learns along the way and teaches us in the process and he has an imaginary feud with the best player in the team.

    Great thread. I would like to know more about "oversized" manga collections.

    So far I have the Naussica 2 volume oversize slip case (I got a great deal for 35- new).

    I am also getting the Gundam Origins books, so far I have books 1 and 2.

    I would love to know what other oversized collections are out there.


    I am also currently reading Mushishi, one of my favorites, but I only have it digital. I recently sold my physical volumes when I found out that volumes 6-8 are basically un-findable for less than 80 bucks each.

    Great idea! Too bad I buy most of my mangas in Spanish...

    I'm currently buying Prison School (I know, I know... ), Naruto (still unfinished in Spain), and the awesome Billy Bat. Other than that, I get short mangas like Satoshi Kon's body work or anthology volumes. I buy too many comics to afford more ongoing stories.

    I did not know..... now I can never unsee some of those things from the Google Image Search. If they ever release this in any form of hardcover I may have to pick up a copy to go along side Highschool of the Dead as my "look at the weird shit the japanese publish" books.

    Personally I've never really read Manga but I've blown through the first two hardcover volumes of Gundam Origins , they've been absolutely brilliant so far.
