Manga with good story and attractive character designs

Well, what i'm looking for is pretty much a manga with both a good story and attractive characters (i.e. character designs) I know these are hard to come by, so you guys have any suggestions?

As an example, desgins i am fond of are Kawashita Mizuki's in Ichigo 100% and Takeshi Obata's work in Death Note.

You should try these:

Hikaru No Go :
another manga by Takeshi Obata.It is about Go (japanese chess)
Go?you may be not interested at first,but believe me,you will want to try study Go after you read this.
First released in Japan in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump in 1998, Hikaru no Go has achieved tremendous success.

I's

Is is the story of a young boy called Ichitaka who suffers from overwhelming love to a girl called Iori who is in his class. She is an actress, and has become fairly famous from the profession, despite her inferior age. The two are properly introduced when they are elected onto the committee, and must come up with some good ideas for it.

The character design is very good.
The story makes you eager to find out what happens next.
Highly recommended!

Manga titles only, all of them have an intriguing plot, art styles differ but are generally pleasant to the eye.

Amira Hergal, 20, looks at you:






Your mileage may vary, but I've found Otoyomegatari's slice-of-life take on 19th-century Turkmen culture
to be absolutely fascinating, in a National Geographic, Steven McCurry Afghan Girl kind of way.

The anime only covers the first arc, the manga is many years ahead and on a totally different level, both in plot and character development. Keep it in mind when you finish the anime~

Full Moon o Sagashite. Definitely one of the best shoujo manga I've ever read with the one of the gorgeous manga artwork I've ever seen.

Spoiler for full moon o sagashite:


Also by the same author is Shinshi Doumei Cross. Its plot is more stereotypically shoujo and everything gets pretty confusing in the end but it's still pretty funny and worth a read.

Spoiler for shinshi doumei cross:


Kuroshitsuji is an excellent manga as well that features some really pretty artwork.

Spoiler for kuroshitsuji:

Loveless has really pretty art as well. There is shounen-ai in it, but it's a pretty good fantasy series with some dark moments in there.

I can't speak for the story but the art in Gosick is pretty spectacular. I guess I'll know a lot more about the story in a month's time...

The most beautiful manga I've seen was Alichino. But, unfortunately, it was dropped by the author.

The light novels were really well-written. I didn't know they had a manga out for it though.
