Manga with the best art?

Postby Trishula » July 17th, 2012, 10:10 am

Which manga do you think has the best art overall?

I'm thinking Berserk or Vagabond but there could be better ones. What do you all think? It'd be great if you can post examples.

Sort of like this.

Pandora hearts is the best for me, no question. Sailor moon too, as well as any and all CLAMP works. D. Gray-Man too.

Oh ja, Berserk.
Wonderful art.
Junji Ito has also become very good. (Compare the first and the last chapters of "Tomie" and you will understand what I mean)

I love Junji Ito art,and all the manga made by Clamp.I also like Sailor moon but the proportions are not right for me(big eyes,long legs...)
Berzerk's art is wonderful.And Gunnm is great too^^
I can't choose between all of them XDXD

For shounen/sienen, I like the art in Ao no Exorcist, Pandora Hearts, The Breaker, and Deadman Wonderland.
I think shoujo artists are better though, like Mitsuki Kako, or Kouga Yun. Or, at least, their art is cuter. >_<
Maybe I'm being subjective, though, since I'm a girl... .__.

Blade of Immortal is made by just 1 guy, he releases roughly 1 volume a year because it takes THAT long to draw everything to its perfect detail by himself.

It's just about the life of Pun-pun (the boy drawn as a bird).  Starts in Elementary school going all the way to college and beyond.  Contains abusive parents, childhood innocence, bullying, watching porn for the first time, crushing on girls, insane people, rape, lost dreams, broken promises, why can't we just say what we really mean?

Totally agree with CLAMP's art! Their art is the best for me. Pandora Hearts' art is pretty too, considering it's a shounen manga.

Shoujo art is the prettiest for me too ^_^ ... (this is pretty much biased, as most of my favorites are shoujo; ie. Natsumi Ando)

From CLAMP, Xxxholic and Clover are my favorites.

The Trigun manga also has some stunning art.
