Quality Manga 2007 (Ongoing)

A Listmania! list by Eleanor "Ellie" (Bristol, England)
 
Mushishi, Volume 1
1.  Mushishi, Volume 1 by Yuki Urushibara
The list author says:
  "'Mushishi'. Engrave that name deeply on your heart, so you won't forget that *that's* what you went into the shop to buy. Easily in my top three. Ginko's journeys, solving mushi-related problems. Ace."
Used & New from: £10.98

Wild Adapter Volume 1
2.  Wild Adapter Volume 1 by Kazuya Minekura
The list author says:
  "Depending on whether you've picked up on Minekura's darker themes in her excellent Saiyuki, you might be surprised at WA's almost total bleakness. I admit, I cried. Yaoi hints, if you squint. (I did)"
Used & New from: £0.01

Love Pistols: v. 1
3.  Love Pistols: v. 1 by Tarako Kotobuki
The list author says:
  "The first time you read this, you'll think it's awful. Endure, though, and you'll realise just how fantastic it is. The best yaoi to be licensed for 2007, full stop. It's hilarious, and sexy as hell."
Used & New from: £15.99

Naoki Urasawa's 20th Century Boys volume 1
4.  Naoki Urasawa's 20th Century Boys volume 1 by Naoki Urasawa
The list author says:
  "If you thought Monster was ambitious, then, well, you were right, but this sprawling saga is truly impressive. Obviously fantastic, as it's Urasawa Naoki, even if the end's a long time coming."
£8.99   Used & New from: £2.19

Solfege
5.  Solfege by Fumi Yoshinaga
The list author says:
  "Not the best this mangaka's ever done, and nowhere near as good as Antique Bakery, but still. Decent, original yaoi, admittedly with some dubious consent. Beware: *totally* unromanticised sex ahoy."
£10.30   Used & New from: £1.07

The Moon and Sandals: v. 1
6.  The Moon and Sandals: v. 1 by Fumi Yoshinaga
The list author says:
  "It's Yoshinaga Fumi. I *know* it's Yoshinaga Fumi, and so it hurts me to say: don't buy this manga. This, along with Flower of Life, just isn't very good. Fine if you're a completist, but otherwise..."
£8.66   Used & New from: £0.94

Emma: Volume 1
7.  Emma: Volume 1 by Kaoru Mori
The list author says:
  "As with a few of these series, technically a 2006 series, but finding its feet in the new year. Mori Kaoru is my goddess. Maids who actually clean, romances I give a damn about, and bloody good art."
Used & New from: £3.30
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

After School Nightmare Volume 1: v. 1
8.  After School Nightmare Volume 1: v. 1 by Setona Mizushiro
The list author says:
  "Mizushiro Setona! Be still my heart. Sadly, it's a wave goodbye to the old art (sometimes ugly; always expressive), now rather more polished. Still gorgeous, though, and the story's wonderful too."
Used & New from: £8.48
