urusei yatsura is one of my favs.. Try Crayon shin-chan, happy mania, and flowers and bees.

so much style with these characters =) really fantastic designs!

as for manga, i just finished 20th century boys by naoki urasawa and it was amazing. i highly recommend it =)

a not too spoilery synposis -

Growing older is pretty rough and Kenji is finding out just how hard it can be as life starts wearing down on him. On top of trying to make ends meet running a convenience store he has to care for the niece that his missing sister left in his care. Memories of youth make it easier, until those memories come back to haunt him.

Kenji and his old friends are slowly being drawn into a mysterious conspiracy that could threaten the world. Who is the mysterious "Friend" and how does he tie into Kenji's youth? Why are there disappearances and deaths tied into Ochanomizu University? Their memories hold the keys to the puzzle, but time and age have clouded their minds.

The strange occurrences and the reach of the "Friend" conspiracy grow by the day. It will all culminate on New Year's Eve 2000. Will Kenji and the others be able to put together the puzzle and save the world?

Spider cadets yaaaay! I can't wait to see their outfits?? (Unless I missed them already I guess. That is possible)

Manga? Uuuh. Osamu Tezuka's Phoenix is a must-read but sort of hard to come by... I enjoyed Fullmetal Alchemist when I was reading it but I've stopped keeping up with the releases now. FMA manga > FMA anime by far! Planetes is good and gets bonus points for being short (4 volumes). Chrno Crusade is pretty good - another short one at only 8 volumes. Depends on your tastes of course...

i love these subtle colors! i cant' stop starin at their shoes! i can't wait to see the suits, coleman, you are going to rock the house! that last guy is my favorite.

maison ikkoku at the library is cool too! i second anything by osamu, oh and usagi yojimbo!

These are wonderful. I am particularly fond of the girl with the stripey shirt and the green shirt+shorts fellow.

Well #$@*! This is making me angry, because it's sooo good. The designs are wonderful and very distincive, a difficult thing to master.

As for Manga.....you have to read Nausicaa (of the valley of wind), not only because is it great, but it's done by Hayao Miyazaki; the Anime Genius!!!

I'm still blown away by it.
