You're gonna buy them near your house? What do they have at the local bookstores? Aa! Megami-sama (Oh! My Goddess) is often easy to find, a nice romance/comedy.

What about the Love Hina manga?

I'm reading Video Girl Ai, right now. It's not so much comedy as drama/romance, though.

Fruits basket, Maison ikkoku

Hmmm, yeah. Fruits Basket vol 1 supposedly came out today. I wouldn't really recommend Maison Ikkoku, though. Even if you like romance stuff I think it's sub-par.

Actually, Maison Ikkoku is probably the best romantic comedy ever. But its a lot more relevant to poor college students than to people still in high school and such.

It's one of my top favorites. But it takes awhile to read it.

"Short Program" by Adachi would be nice to have on a vacation because it's only one volume of short stories. But I don't know how easy that would be to find.

Rumic Theater and Rumic World are also solid short story collections. Doesn't matter which volume you get of either because the stories are unrelated.

If you're after some Shojo, I picked up a cute new manga series called Angel Guardian Getten.

I think the proper title is "Mamotte Shugogetten". If you liked Ah! my goddess, then this would be good to read.

Well I'm a poor college student and I still despised it. The characters of Godai and Kyoko just weren't enough to hold my interest and everyone else I just wanted to strangle. However I DID manage to read all of it, right down to the cheap and cheesy ending, so it wasn't THAT bad. I just don't think I would recommend it, especially not for a boring trip.

well i went today and got love hina...cus i knew it would be good! then i kinda decided to go for somethin really random so i picked up Ai Yori Aoshi. I remember some of my dvds have previews for the anime and except for some of the voice acting :) it didn;t look to shabby, so why not try the manga. any of you familiar with it?

TronDD 2004-02-11 10:13

I've seen the anime. It wasn't bad. The drama/romance was good, I don't recall it being very funny, though. But then I didn't think Love Hina was funny, either,

I think both would be worth reading, though.

love comedy romance:

try out :

Love Hina (best one there is) : 14 manga
Chobits : 8 manga
Ai Yori Aoshi : only 1 manga so far :'(
Ah My Goddes : nice but i didn't like the drawing style (20+ manga i believe)

Last Exile 2004-02-11 16:17

It shocks me that nobody has yet to mention Azmanga Daioh, possibly the greatest comedy manga to date! Also, if you like romance, for me nothing beats Kare Kano (his and her circumstances).

GTO, Full Metal Panic, Clover, Chobits (as already mentioned), FLCL, Evangelion (Sadamoto-san is a god), Battle Royale, Akira and Shirahime-Syo are all class A mangas... whilst .hack, happy mania, Onegai Teacher, Naruto, X-day and Gunslinger Girl all sit comfortably on the class B catergory. There really are too many to mention, these are just some of my favourites.

Love hina is a good start though, and after you've read all 14 books the anime will begin to look like a joke in comparison.

What can I say, I love da manga... ^_^

edit:: Oh I forgot Nausicaa of the valley of wind. One of the most epic mangas in existance I think those who've read it would all agree.
