Death Note -- My favourite animanga. Ever. Considering that I've read over 200 series and this is STILL my favourite, it should be pretty good, no? There are genii, killing notebooks, hot bishies, handcuffs, chips . . . and oh! Light Yagami♥ What more could you want in a manga?

Light Yagami is an ace student with great prospects--and he's bored out of his mind. But all that changes when he finds the Death Note, a notebook dropped by a rogue Shinigami death god. Any human whose name is written in the notebook dies, and now Light has vowed to use the power of the Death Note to rid the world of evil. But when criminals begin dropping dead, the authorities send the legendary detective L to track down the killer. With L hot on his heels, will Light lose sight of his noble goal... or his life?

Bakuman -- By Takeshi Obata, and Tsugumi Ohba sensei-tachi, the same genii that created Death Note. It's a manga about drawing manga with this hopelessly innocent romance tied into it. What's there not to love?

It's not easy to become and live as a mangaka, Mashiro knows that from his late uncle. At his 9th grade, while trying to keep up with reality, school and then normal job, he left his notebook with a sketch of Azuki, a girl he likes. Takagi, a first rate student found it and trying to convince Mashiro to draw a manga with his story. Mashiro doesn't like the idea and tries to decline. Takagi, however, tries to stick to dream and found out that Azuki also wants to be a voice actress and already got a good reply from a production company. Takagi, then, brought Mashiro to her house and telling her his dream.... Mashiro then tells her that he will write a manga with Takagi and will ask Azuki to voice their anime. Out of confusion, Mashiro asks her if the dreams become reality, will she marry him? She says yes, only if their dreams become true, and not otherwise!! Now, lives of wannabe mangakas begin!!!

Fullmetal Alchemist -- Shorties of the world unite! But at 161cm (5'2") I'm still taller than Edward Elric♥. I really want to hug Ed at times. Wouldn't a world with alchemy be cool? Alchemy and automail body parts--no more of this prosthetic crap.

"Humankind cannot gain anything without first giving something in return. To obtain, something of equal value must be lost. That is alchemy's first law of equivalent exchange. In those days we really believed that to be the world's one and only truth."

In an alchemical ritual gone wrong, Edward Elric lost his arm and his leg, and his brother Alphonse became nothing but a soul in a suit of armor. Equipped with mechanical "auto-mail" limbs, Edward becomes a state alchemist, seeking the one thing that can restore his brother and himself... the legendary Philosopher's Stone.
