Pure Trance
2.  Pure Trance by Junko Mizuno
The list author says:
  "Junko Mizuno's stuff will still feel cutting-edge in twenty year's time. I'm not entirely sure what this was about, but it's SO GOOD ANYWAY."

Ode to Kirihito
4.  Ode to Kirihito by Osamu Tezuka
The list author says:
  "A fat doorstop of "gekiga" (mature readers manga) medical drama about the social effects of a disfiguring disease, by the greatest mangaka ever. Also highly recommended by Tezuka: Phoenix, Buddha, MW."

5.  Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind Volume 1 (Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind) by Hayao Miyazaki
The list author says:
  "Forget the film (which is okay, but Ghibli's done far better), the manga is the real deal. 7 volumes of futuristic eco-fables."

Ghost in the Shell (New Edition)
6.  Ghost in the Shell (New Edition) by Masamune Shirow
The list author says:
  "Still a cyberpunk classic after all this time. Avoid the sequel (Man-Machine Interface) though, it's utterly incomprehensible. Read "Orion" or "AppleSeed" instead. Or "Dominion", that's a lot of fun."
Used & New from: £13.33
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (12 customer reviews)

Gon: 1 (Gon (CMX))

Blame!: Volume 1
8.  Blame!: Volume 1 by Tsutomu Nihei
The list author says:
  "The most action-packed actiony action manga that ever actioned. The character designs and architecture make this a must for H.R. Giger nuts. 10 volumes. See also: "Biomega"."
Used & New from: £43.55
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews)

The Great Catsby Volume 1: v. 1
10.  The Great Catsby Volume 1: v. 1 by Doha
The list author says:
  "Not manga, strictly speaking (it's Korean and in colour), but more people should be reading this; an earthy, yet poetic, relationship tale based on "The Great Gatsby", with animal people. 6 volumes."
Used & New from: £5.25
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews)

Akira: Vol.1: Bk. 1
11.  Akira: Vol.1: Bk. 1 by Katsuhiro Otomo
The list author says:
  "The film misses out all the things that make the ending to Akira make sense for the sake of brevity, and the extra content is just incredible. Tetsuo totally blows up the moon! 6 volumes."
Used & New from: £0.01
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (21 customer reviews)

DR SLUMP TP VOL 01 (C: 1-0-0)
12.  DR SLUMP TP VOL 01 (C: 1-0-0) by Akira Toriyama
The list author says:
  "Unashamedly childish children's gag manga, guaranteed to brighten up your day. 18 volumes (I think?) but you don't have to buy them all. Don't be put off by the DragonBall Z connection, this is great!"
Used & New from: £2.82

Bambi And Her Pink Gun Volume 1: v. 1
13.  Bambi And Her Pink Gun Volume 1: v. 1 by Atsushi Kaneko
The list author says:
  "I love this, but sadly only two volumes got translated... I guess DMP decided shotacon porn was more profitable. The two volumes available are great, although not for the squeamish."
Used & New from: £6.79

Fist of the North Star: v. 1
14.  Fist of the North Star: v. 1 by Hara Tetsuo
The list author says:
  "SOMEONE BRING THIS BACK INTO PRINT! FotNS is predictable, but lots of head-exploding fun. When Kenshiro says "you're already dead", after poking you lightly, he means it!"
Used & New from: £16.98

The Walking Man
15.  The Walking Man by Jiro Taniguchi
The list author says:

17.  Barefoot Gen: v. 1: A Cartoon Story of Hiroshima: No. 1 by Nakazawa Keiji
The list author says:
  "On a similar topic, this is still one of the most important anti-war comics ever published. The film is a good complement to it, too, so check that as well!"
£10.99   Used & New from: £4.82
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (10 customer reviews)

Blue
18.  Blue by Kiriko Nananan

£23.12   Used & New from: £18.91

New Engineering
19.  New Engineering by Yuichi Yokoyama
The list author says:
  "I'm having trouble imagining a person, not a robot, drawing this manga. Machine-like, impersonal, charmingly diagrammatic in its depictions of things happening with little or no human intervention."
£12.95   Used & New from: £7.14

Even a Monkey Can Draw Manga
20.  Even a Monkey Can Draw Manga by Koji Aihara
The list author says:
  "This book is a warning. If anyone ever tries to tell you that manga is somehow intrinsically better than Western comics because it's "not as cliched", show them this book. They are WRONG."
Used & New from: £21.25

Ohikkoshi
21.  Ohikkoshi by Hiroaki Samura
The list author says:
  ""My parents are thinking of buying an exotic animal as a pet, so do you want to go to the zoo with me?" is the best terrible pick-up line ever. Good work! By the author of "Blade of the Immortal"."

Abandon the Old in Tokyo
22.  Abandon the Old in Tokyo by Yoshihiro Tatsumi
The list author says:
  "Downbeat gekiga short stories about the petty evils of everyday urban life. Bleak and depressing, but really good! See also: "The Push Man and other stories" by the same author."

WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD GN VOL 01 (C: 1-0-1)

The list author says:
  "Loosely related slice-of-life vignettes chronicling the modern day hassles and neuroses of everyday living. Just that little bit askew, though. 2 volumes. See also: "Solanin" and "Oyasumi Punpun"."
Used & New from: £3.75

What's Michael? Volume 11: Planet Of The Cats
24.  What's Michael? Volume 11: Planet Of The Cats by Makoto Kobayashi
The list author says:
  "Remember when Garfield was good? Me either, but here's Japan's answer to every cat comic you can think of. Final volume, and not all of the series is still in print; worth checking out, though."
Used & New from: £3.10

Maison Ikkoku Volume 1: Vol 1 (MANGA)
25.  Maison Ikkoku Volume 1: Vol 1 (MANGA) by Rumiko Takahashi
