Read around 70 chapters the whole weekend to catch up to One Piece. Didn't really enjoy the Fishman island series. Gets better though when they get above the sea

Uh, that's what most action packed manga have. Just about every character gets stronger as time progresses. If the characters get weaker, I doubt the manga would be as popular, unless the characters find interesting ways to adapt to their misfortunes.

you my friend are wrong, characters increasing in strength does not decide whether a manga is good or bad, things like good plot,interesting fight scenes, no ass-pulls, and lack of plot holes make a manga good and naruto is full of plot holes and a shit ton of asspulls especially with the sharingan b.s.

Last month, goo Research polled 1,939 Japanese people from ages 15 to 44 about their manga reading habits. Questions ranged from which manga they read to who their favorite character is—they even asked about favorite one-liners. So if manga is your drug of choice, read on to see which are the most popular in Japan right now.


All 1,939 people polled were asked to indicate whether they even like manga or not. Three-fourths of the respondents like or love it; only 6.4% actively dislike it (with the remaining 19.1% being indifferent toward manga). Even then, only 21.8% of those polled claim to never read manga at all.

When it comes to reading location, a majority of both men and women read at home, with home being the most common place women read manga. Men, on the other hand, often also read while commuting, during work breaks, or any other time they have free time outside of the house. (Note: only people who read weekly manga anthologies were asked the preceding question.)

As to what kind of manga the Japanese people polled typically read, the most popular genres for men are sports, comedy, fantasy, and sci-fi. Women also enjoy comedy and fantasy, but enjoy love story and shojou manga even more.

By far the favorite manga among the men and women polled is One Piece—followed by Dragon Ball, Slam Dunk, and Naruto for men and Slam Dunk, Kimi ni Todoke, and NANA, for women. Unsurprisingly then, the most popular character for both genders is Monkey D. Luffy (One Piece). In fact, of the top five characters, three are from One Piece (though which three vary between men and women). The most popular non-One Piece character is Goku (Dragon Ball) for men and Sakuragi Hanamichi (Slam Dunk) for women.

Lastly, as for the most popular one-liner, it isn't Luffy's "I'll be king of the pirates" or Detective Conan's "One Truth Prevails!" Even my favorite "You are already dead" from Fist of the North Star comes in second. No, the most popular single line comes from Slam Dunk: "If you give up, the game is already over."

So there you have it. Now you know what manga are big in Japan, which genres are popular, and who the most popular characters are. And what should we take away from all this information? I'm going with: Japanese people love One Piece.

Part 1/Part 2
  • One Piece = Dragonball Z with better marketing research
  • That plagiarizing piece of shit Slam Dunk is really that popular.
  • Oh wait! Slam Dunk is the most popular among Japanese woman!?

Yes, in the dramas you often see slam dunk mentioned, or a female character will read it. it's really popular among women of my wife's generation. She personally loves it, we have every volume.

As you can notice from the chart, Bleach and Naruto are Shonen Jump manga series with the least contents.

Recently started watching Legend of the Galactic Heroes. One of those shows that gets a ton of praise that I hadn't seen yet, so I finally decided to give it a go. Glad I did too, I'm really enjoying it so far.

As far as this season goes, the only show that I'm really following is Hyouka.

I think the only one that I've seen that sort of fits that description is Full Metal Panic. I don't really watch a ton of mecha to be honest.

Farewell to Rie Tanaka's, the voice of Lacus Clyne among well-known others, sexy cosplay shenanigans. She is getting married with a 50-something fellow voice actor, almost 20 years senior.

If you are true anime fans, can you recognize all voice actors/actresses without using the Internet? You should get at least 3-4 obvious ones.
