I’m sure many of you should know by now I am a crazy “otaku”. I love anime, and I love my mangas. I am a total fan of nendoroids and figurines and I used to have plenty at home before I shifted house. (My room is too small for those display cabinets now.) I still have my mangas at home though. Yes, I buy comics and mangas too!
With the advancement of technology, people are now streaming manga on the internet or their mobile phones. I totally agree that it is more convenient and I even bought a manga-reading application for my phone! You have a portable gadget, a convenient application, what’s left? A good connection that loads fast enough. Thank God for ViewQwest’s 2Gbps Fibernet, hehe.
Here are some places where you can stream good quality mangas on both your phones and on the net:
http://crunchyroll.com (Application available on ViewQwest TV!)
Alternately, you have applications like “Manga BDR” and “MangaZone” available for download on your app store, and play store!
Anyway, here are 5 of my favourite mangas of all time!
#5 Kuroko no Basuke
Remember the times when everyone was going crazy over MVP Lovers by 5566?
Kuroko no Basuke is a similar basketball themed manga, but it has more basketball element to it than love. It tells you about the brotherhood and rivalry between the 5 star players from the same team after getting separated into 5 different high schools.
The star team had a mysterious 6th player, Kuroko, that nobody really knew because of his lack of presence. He started playing for an unknown, small little team in Seirin High School.
With his new partner, Kagami Taiga, they aimed to be Japan’s number one high school basketball team by taking down Kuroko’s past team members one by one.
#4 Tokyo Ghoul
This makes me cry. The ending for the first season was so sad. I wish they make Kaneki come back in Season 2, but until now there is still no news.
I got hooked onto Tokyo Ghoul one day after a trial reading of the first 3 chapters. Tokyo Ghoul is much more than just another human-looking-monsters-feeding-off-humans story. They have extremely detailed illustrations and their characters are so well designed, I can’t help but to complete the series.
Kaneki was a poor boy who got targeted by a ghoul for her dinner, but the ghoul was killed suddenly when she was eating him. Kaneki was saved by a doctor who transplanted the ghoul’s organs into his body. There were consequences though, Kaneki could no longer be a human.
That thought is pretty scary because a ghoul cannot eat human food, it drains them of their power and the food will taste horrible. I love my pancakes and nasi bryani and I can’t imagine not being able to taste them anymore, T_T.
I’m sorry that I seem to be a fan of ultra gore stuff haha.
Claymore is a really good manga and I don’t want to miss it. I keep reading it over and over again because it is so good, and the characters look so fantastic and they have an awesome story line as well.
Claymore is yet another human-turned-monster story, but these bunch of Claymore existed to save the humans from Yoma(monsters).
Clare was the weakest Claymore in history because she was a half-breed. She took the head of her Claymore-saviour to the organisation to turn herself from a human to a Claymore for revenge. asking alexandria . Unknown to all, she was actually the one with the most power. She was the potential Claymore that could slay the awakened beings (uncontrolled Claymores who lost control of their yoma powers).
This is the second all time favourite manga I’ve read.
I lasted through the period where they took 2 weeks to release the chapters, and then to illustrator/author, Masashi Kishimoto, having his office destroyed during the 2011 Tsunami, resulting in an almost 2 months delay in the new release.
Naruto was the best selling manga in the entire history. Who knew following a rebellious ninja’s journey to being a Hokage could be so interesting!
Not forgetting his undying faith in a friend who betrayed his hometown, Konoha, Naruto persevered through all the hardships trying to bring him back, and even overcame a death penalty to finally become the Hokage of Konoha.
Naruto’s spirit is worth looking up to. That’s the reason why I lasted through these years of reading and waiting for new releases to finally read the last chapter of Naruto.
#1 One Piece
This is my favourite manga since I was 8 years old, and it still is now that I am 23 years old.
I remembered Kids Central used to air One Piece back in the 2000s, and I would always hog the seat right in front of my TV, just 2 metres away and sang along with the One Piece theme song.
One Piece was the first anime I watched. I would list Dragonball as the first but I am not a fan of Dragonball.
But no fret Dragonball fans, you can always catch the full series of Dragonball on Crunchyroll!
There are many other different animes you can watch on Crunchyroll too! Even these mangas I’ve listed on top. :) With that said, the ViewQwest TV also provides many other different channels for you to watch your favorite animes in high quality!
