    Ok started reading the Nausicaa manga and I am hooked - now I need more more I tell you!

    So what are some good manga to seek out? So far I have on my to try list:

    Akira
    Wolf's Rain
    Elfin lied (ok its going to be a long wait for this one as apparently its not even translated into english yet - not even for a US release)
    Ghost in the Shell
    Princess Mononoke (amazon listing says its a film book - so does this mean no real added or altered content and more a storyboard using film slides? Still worth having but might move down the list if there is little to add to the story of the film)
    Cowboy Bebop!

    So far that is it - and its mostly just me finding manga based on anime that I have seen - so any other good recomendations for manga?

    Already have a suggestions type thread. (Although I've changed my opinions on some of the one's I've listed)

    As a quick note:
    Wolf's Rain - Overrated
    Elfen Lied - pfft
    Akira - pretty cool
    Cowboy Bebop - Epic godly stuff. Unfortunately main thing is anime only, not a manga.
    Mononoke-Hime - No manga for this. Anime only.

    Wow...I even provided a link where you can continue posting suggestions instead of in here and that was ignored.

    Could you post in the other thread please?
