The first three are all by Fujisaki Ryu
It's kind of hard for me to explain the plot of this series, mostly because it's been forever since I've read it but it is based off of an old Chinese legend/story sort of like how Saiyuki is based off of A Journey to the West. It is about Taikoubou a boy who must rid the world of evil gods/demigods and basically keep the whole world in check. This is Fujisaki Ryu's most popular series and there was a (i hear horrible) anime based off of it called (in the states) Soul Hunter.
This is another great series by Fujisaki Ryu. It is a short series (only about 5 volumes long) about a post apocalyptic wasteland ruled by machines and they main character's quest to overthrow it. At first it does sound very unorigional but I can't explain how unique it is without spoilers! If I'm not mistaken the final volume has been released by Viz so you can go out and read the whole thing!
Okay this one is just freaking awesome. This is a comedy about a guy and his family trying to protect his house from aliens, people from the future, demons, amongst other things. This series will never be released in the states, and for good reason. It has inappropriate jokes. It also has one of the best endings I've ever read.
Sports manga!? Damn right it is, and it is fantastic! If you couldn't guess by the name it's a manga about basketball. It was hands down the best sports manga I've ever read and another one of the best endings for a series I've ever read. I'm sure Keiichi-chan can vouch for me on this one.
k, one more...
I was surprised that not that many people know about this fantastic series. I mean people have heard of it or may have saw the anime (4kids *shudder*) but the manga is a great read. The story is about a boy who wants to become shaman king which is basically the messiah.
Okay, that is all for now, I'll be posting billions of more recommendations soon enough, hahaha.
