I'd suggest Yotsubato, it's an easy read and very enjoyable.

Yotsubato! (comes with furigana for the kanji, very simple ... sometimes the font used for background dialog can be challenging) -- 6 volumes so far

Lucky*Star (also has furigana for the kanji but sometimes the clever wordplay can be difficult) - 4 volumes so far

Azumanga Daioh (a bit challenging but the complete series is only 4 volumes)

Mahoraba: Heartful Days (also a bit challenging but has furigana -- 13 volumes/complete I think)

That's really the key.... make sure the kanji has furigana (eases pronunciation and lookup).

furigana? what is that? is that anpother word or name for hiragana? or is it another writing system in japanese along with hiragana, katakana, and kanji? oh me and my friend know how to read hiragana, dislike therefore never got used to katakas, and havent learned much kanji's. gonna go and check out japantown and see what they can recommend to me and my classmate...

Furigana - small hiragana symbols next to kanji. They are placed there for readers to be sure which meaning of kanji symbol was used.
