I don't read a lot of manga, but if you're looking for something hilarious, I'd recommend Sgt. Frog (Keroro Gunso). It's about an advance team of frog-like aliens sent to scout out the Earth before their invasion fleet arrives, but they get captured by a girl and her brother and the invasion is called off, marooning them. Invading frogs that get hooked on building Gundam models and girls who beat the tar out of them when they don't do the housework--it's insane, but also very funny

This is Tokyopop's site, unfortunately only vol. 1 is out so far:

Nice thread to decide on new mangas to read, thanks to all of you who gave me the names of new mangas to read
By the way my Top 10 right now in no particular order is:

Air Gear - Oh! Great really deserves is name, Air Gear is just awesome. Me wants a pair of Air Treck
Tenjo Tenge - Another awesome by Oh! Great, the fighting as well as the story are a must.
20th Century Boys - This one can really mess a person head, Friend schemes are amazing, also i would prefer this one animated to monster.
Naruto - Manga about ninjas almost always cool and entertaining.
One Piece - Very original concept, Pirates rule, not to mention it's very funny and entertaning as well.
Bleach - Now this one has to be animated, Bleach is awesome with a damn original story a lot of comedy moments and some wicked fights.
Black Cat - Read above, i have pretty much the same tought's about this one as i do with Bleach.
Ichigo 100% - Nice romance manga with a lot of fanservice.
GANTZ - Brutal, real and original, what more does it need, the people in GANTZ act very much like reality.
Midori No Hibi - This one features the most weird relationship i saw ever, so wrong it's almost right.

I strongly strongly agree with 20th Century Boys. Bleach, Gantz, Black Cat, Naruto, and One Piece are also definitely worth checking out. I'd add Monster and Hunter X Hunter to the list, and Zombie Powder for that matter although it's short. The Fullmetal Alchemist manga is also good but the anime's a lot better.

I'm extremely excited about Monster animated, but I hope they wait to animate 20th Century Boys until it's finished

Here's my list...no specific order.

Peacemaker Kurogane - the anime in my opinion was pretty crap...all they had was good animation...but I assure you the manga is a different story.

Vagabond - this is the bomb. great action fabulous art...and i mean fabulous....i just don't know how this guy manages to draw like this. Well the story is based on a history novel about Miyamoto Musashi so i personally like it.

REAL - Great. Any of you who enjoyed Slam Dunk would love this. It is about handicapped people trying to fullfill their dreams and avoiding being discriminated. I think it's very touching.

Planetes - The art is not good...but the story is great. It isnt as nice as the anime but it's still one of the best.

Fullmetal Alchemist - Not as good as the anime.

Naruto - Was a great series until the 2nd saga ended...now, in my opinion, it is a very crappy series...but i'm hoping it would revive again.

One Piece - Also was a great series...but the recent Skypiea and the "Long" island thing....is just....not interesting.

Bleach - I personally think it is just an average series at the begining. But i was wrong, it started to get very interesting and exciting around Book 6-7.

Eyeshield 21 - Funny and great art.

Full Ahead Co-Co - This series is rejected by a lot of people because of its crap art and crap designs. I personally think it is a great series.

Well thats all the top ten manga that i love. Hunter X Hunter used to be the top but....the story got too boring when they entered the Greed Island arc. I think Gundam The ORIGIN is nice as well but if you've already seen the original Gundam it's not worth.

This man knows what he's talking about. You just can't not like it. As for other Manga: Love Hina is hella funny. Dragon Hunter is liscensed by Tokyopop but well worth the money. Full Metal Panic is also liscensed and also very good. But i emphisize it again HunterXHunter is the GREATEST!!!

Well, I already see most of my suggestions (Planetes, Yakitate Japan) posted. One manga thats missing is Genshiken, a manga about a manga-anime-video-game college club ("Society for the Study of Modern Visual Culture"). It has some fun characters, and for some reason there aren't that many mangas about college students, so thats another plus.

Also of note are the works by Azuma, Yotsubato and Azumanga Daioh. Good for their cute humor.

I'm right now reading Naruto and Midori no Hibi and trying to get my hands on the Pita Ten manga to read if that gives you any clue to the kind of manga I like. Humorous or adventure anime are good, so is sci-fi. Enchii is not big on my list, but if it's in good taste I'm ok with that.

What would be the top 10 manga you'd suggest?
My personal favourites(NOT in order)

Bleach
Black cat
One piece
Naruto

DNA2
Devil&devil
King of bowling

I almost forgot

Shonen junai gumai
Hajime no Ippo
HUNTERXHUNTER
