Billy Bat

Billy Bat is a comic-in-a-comic and the real protagonist is a Japanese-American artist named Kevin Yamagata who draws Billy Bat for "Marble Comics".

Shortly after they transition to the artist in his studio with his assistant, two actual detectives, who look like Laurel and Hardy in Dick Tracy era suits and trench coats, knock on the door and appropriate Kevin's room for the purpose of conducting surveillance on a room in an adjacent building. One of the detectives, the skinny “Laurel”, sees Kevin's work and it turns out he's a Billy Bat fan. The other chubby "Hardy" detective picks up a page and says that the characters look familiar and accuses Kevin of translating an old "Jap" comic.

As Hardy remembers the comic he thinks Kevin is ripping off, we make another Urasawaesque time jump to 1949 Tokyo and the chapter ends.

Feng Shen Ji

The Great Shang dynasty has been in power for many years but the Gods find fault with the new emperor. Instead of submitting to their will at the expense of his people, the Emperor resolves to throw off the Gods' yoke and free humanity. However, not only the Gods but a rival, the young Zhou who submits to the Gods' will for his own purposes will face him!

The fate of the dynasty, nay, the fate of all humanity will be determined by this great battle between the forces of Heaven and Earth!


Gintama

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-qd387xNbNig/UZCM4DxjH1I/AAAAAAAAANU/7K0sdbWpYEA/s1600/Gintama.jpg

The story focuses on an eccentric samurai, Gintoki Sakata, his (partial) apprentice Shinpachi Shimura, and a teenage alien girl who's from one of the strongest races in existence: yato. All three are "freelancers" known as the Yorozuya. They search for work in order to pay the monthly rent, which usually goes unpaid anyway. The story takes place in the Edo Period, but instead of the Europeans invading in the late 1860s they are invaded by aliens, which they call Amanto.The blend of comedic and serious arcs along with heavy doses of genre deconstruction, lovable characters, and the author's penchant for bringing the mundane into the realms of insanity makes this a highly addictive, MUST-read.

Hunter x Hunter
Watch Here (http://animeonthego.com/animelist/hunter-x-hunter-2011/hunter-x-hunter-episode-01)
http://www.animecapsule.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/Hunter-Hunter-2011-Gallery.jpg

Hunters are a special breed, dedicated to tracking down treasures, magical beasts, and even other men. But such pursuits require a license, and less than one in a hundred thousand can pass the grueling qualification exam. Those who do pass gain access to restricted areas, amazing stores of information, and the right to call themselves Hunters.

Kill la Kill

Ryuuko Matoi carries a large weapon shaped like half of a pair of scissors. She's looking for the woman with the other half, who killed her father. Satsuki Kiryuuin, student council president of Honnouji Academy, is said to know the woman's identity, so Ryuuko transfers there. Those who arrive at the school receive a special "goku uniform," and Satsuki has used that power to rule the school in fear.

Kuroko no Basket

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/7/79/Kuroko_no_Basuke_Cover.jpg/230px-Kuroko_no_Basuke_Cover.jpg

Kuroko is a member from the legendary middle school basketball team known as "The Generation of Miracles ", and while nobody seems to know about him, the main 5 players of the team all admit that he is a better player. When he joins the high school basketball team, everyone is surprised to find out that he is small, weak, and easy to miss. What is the secret that makes him so strong, and how will he help his high school team?

Naruto
Read Here (http://mangafox.me/manga/naruto/v01/c001/1.html)
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/9/94/NarutoCoverTankobon1.jpg

Twelve years ago, the powerful Nine-Tailed Demon Fox attacked the ninja village of Konohagakure. The demon was quickly defeated and sealed into the infant Naruto Uzumaki, by the Fourth Hokage who sacrificed his life to protect the village. Now Naruto is the number one knucklehead ninja who's determined to become the next Hokage and gain recognition by everyone who ever doubted him!

I don't see how an anime can really classify in this. We should stick to only manga.

The General Series section does include anime, so it wouldn't make sense to exclude them.

Finished ones are allowed. And HxH still has an ongoing anime to be fair.

I started with the anime which is very nice. However, the manga doesn't lose in quality either. Take your pick. You won't be disappointed with the manga when you've caught up with the anime either way.

Definitely manga. While the anime is actually pretty well done, the art is fantastic in the manga. You might as well read it in order to be fully caught up.


Seirin has just started their match against Yosen.

I am surprised. That is pretty deep in the story.

This season should be almost done and that's when I'll start catching up with the anime. I loved the first season of KnB.

Yeah, but the anime season it's a part of is almost over. A few more episodes and then we'll have to wait a year before the next season starts so there's something of a balance.

Unless HxH manga got those terrible art out of the way online, all people are doing is forcing others to go through that.

Naruto...

We need screening here.

DoflaMihawk
02-26-2014, 02:05 PM
I'd recommend the anime for KnB, then catch up with the manga once you've finished that. They're both great, but when it's something like basketball, it's always better to watch than to read about it, and the anime does it really well.
