Quick Review – One of the most underrated Manga i guess, Why this Manga didn’t get an Anime adaptation despite its awesome story, awesome fights and lots of epic factors. If the Anime is made it can become a hype of the season if properly Animated and the story line is not messed.

Rating – 8.6/10

Synopsis – Being in love with a man of a lower rank was perhaps the only problem in Yonas otherwise peaceful life as a princess, until her world is irrevocably changed and she is forced to flee from her sheltered existence.

Quick Review – This Manga is the blend of Shoujo and Shounen Manga and has a combination of Action, Adventure, Romance and some serious dark plot that makes this Manga a must read. Although this Manga shows a great Main Character development, the translations of the chapters are kinda slow currently the translated chapters are 112 but there are chapters beyond that too which are already released and that same goes for Arachnid Manga. So if you’re a person who are familiar Korean, Japanese or Chinese language you’re lucky because the latest chapters are available in these languages but you can find fan translations on sites like tumblr and blogger blogs.

Rating – 7/10

5. Shokugeki No Soma

Quick Review – I guess everyone is aware with Anime called “Food wars : Shokugeki No Soma.” Apparently the Anime got famous because of these two factors delicious food and ecchi. Yes the Anime and Manga is combination of that because of this everyone forgets the third and the most important factor which makes this Manga one the best cooking manga ever made in Japanese Manga history and that is its setting and story which is of course completely shatters your typical cooking series cliche.

Rating – 9.5/10

Quick Review – Nurarihyon No Mago got Anime adaptation which covers almost half of the Manga in two seasons. The Manga is complete and to know what happened after season two you can read it. But i don’t quite get it why this Manga got its Anime adaptation canceled the story is epic and so are the fight scenes. In fact all the “Main stuffs” is right after where the season two of the series ended. For good character and story building you can watch the two seasons of the Anime and the rest is all in the Manga

Rating – 8.5/10

7. Code-Breaker

Code Breaker Manga
Top 10 Manga – Code Breaker Manga

Synopsis – Rikuo Nura, a kid that is part human and a quarter youkai (demon), lives in a house full of spirits along with his youkai grandfather.

Quick Review – Again one of the most epic manga that got its Anime adaptation cancelled. Code-Breaker got the Anime which consisted of only 13 episodes but the got nowhere near the real story in the Anime. All the epicness is still in Manga which focuses on some really serious major event that will blow your mind.

Rating – 9.6/10

Quick Review – There is a reason why i put Skip beat in the Top 10 Manga list and that’s because we are getting pretty major revelations now. To be honest i once gave up on the Manga because of its slow translations and i felt the story-line was being dragged because it was almost the time where readers should get some major revelations. I decided to come back to the manga later on and i am glad i did that as i mentioned we are getting pretty major revelations now because its difficult to predict what will happen in the next chapter or entire story.

Rating – 8.5/10

9.Kaichou wa Maid-sama! Manga

 Kaichou wa Maid Sama
Top 10 Manga – Kaichou wa Maid Sama

Synopsis – As President of the Student Council, the overachieving feminist, Ayuzawa Misaki, really socks it to the guys in an attempt to the make the former all-boys school attract a more female student body. But what will she do when the sexiest boy in class,Usui Takumi, finds out Misaki s after-school gig is in a maid cafe?!

It is a love at first fight in this shoujo romantic comedy with a whole new look at the battle between the sexes.

(Source – MangaMint)

Quick Review – Certainly a Manga that i would like to include in the Top 10 Manga list and the reason is not its popularity but how the story progresses and ends. Otherwise the Manga is pure your typical shoujo cliche with moe moe romance.

Rating – 7.5/10

10. Baby steps

Baby steps
Top 10 Manga – Baby steps

Synopsis – Maruo Eiitirou (E-Chan), a first year honor student, one day decides he is unhappy with the way things are and lacks excerise. He finds a flyer for the Tennis Club and decides check it out. He is instantly captivated by it. With no prior experience and poor physical conditioning, join E-Chan as he embarks on a tennis journey using his smarts, dedication and work ethic.

Quick Review – The sports Manga based on Tennis which surely deserves a third season (Since the Manga already got a two season Anime). In terms of character development and how to wrap the entire story around a single character and progress it with a combination of romance drama and sports that too without loosing the pace in terms of that the Anime and Manga both are way ahead then any other. In fact its better than Prince of Tennis because the Manga and Anime both shows that the series can be interesting and exciting with only pure sports and nothing extra and over flashy. If you think that Prince of Tennis was your inspiration then i guess you should take a look at baby steps because not only it focuses on sports. It also motivate you to face your responsibilities and also teaches you to tackle the life problems in the most effective way

Rating – 9.5/10
