Excellent Manga

A Listmania! list by Daewoozoo
The list author says: "I have been a long time fan of anime series. I began watching Dragon Ball Z on Toonami back in the day. After a hiatus from anime during my middle school and high school years, I decided to pick up a new anime series, called Cowboy Bebop. After watching this anime, my love for the Japanese art style presented in anime was restored. So after watching through several series, I began running out of titles I considered worth my time. Eventually, after receiving several recommendations, I was put on to reading manga. Here is a list of my favorite Manga titles. Check them out!"
Gantz Volume 1 (v. 1)
1.  Gantz Volume 1 (v. 1) by Hiroya Oku

  "This series does not disappoint.  Every page is packed with mature content, that ranges from violent sci-fi action sequences, graphic/disturbing gore, lustfully-driven sex scenes, and pervasive drug use."

8.  Death Note, Vol. 1 by Tsugumi Ohba
