by Clamp (Artistic Group)
1337231.jpg This is a graphic novel series. Clamp themselves are an awesome artistic team who have created many great works. This series and the next one I list are their newest and most detailed works yet. The two series crossover between each other and you get to see things from two viewpoints.

Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle

by Clamp (Artistic Group)
1330826.jpg This is another graphic novel series by Clamp. Their artwork and storytelling is always captivatingm, even after 15 years. When I pick up one of their creations, I read it from start to finish without putting it down (I just can't). I eagerly await each next installment to arrive. You can never pass up a good Clamp book.

Ranma ½

by Rumiko Takahashi
1350434.jpg This author is one of the most famous Japanese manga-ka here in the U.S., with many of her titles already translated into many different languages. This series is full of zany characters who always find themselves in odd situations, but the underlying problem of love is always apparent. This kind of reminds me of teenage life.

Kare Kano

by Masami Tsuda
1320386.jpg This graphic novel series starts off with a bang; a high school rivalry for the top dog spot of the class, which eventually turns into a passionate love comic between the two competitors. However, there is more to this series than meets the eye.

Azumanga Daioh

by Kiyohiko Azuma
1330642.jpg There isn't much one can say about this graphic novel series. It takes the norms of school and society and throws them out the window. After the first volume you start to ask, "What was this author was thinking?"
