Well known series all over the world “Japanese Manga Series
Japanese Manga Series
Manga are funny books made in Japan utilizing their particular way of drawing characters. Due to its popularity in Japan, almost everyone read it. From the past few decades, it is also getting famous in the west. You should not get confused with many Japanese animations (movies& shows). Many Japanese shows (Anime) are from Manga.
Manga gets its name by being often confused with those bit of speech bubbles you can see in western comics like Asterix or Tintin, called “Manga” as well (though they are not representative for this comic).
After becoming popular worldwide, some comic magazines began to release their versions based on Japanese manga series. Those are called “Manga Magazines” as well. For example, there is Weekly Shōnen Jump en Monthly Shonen Magazine which publishes different kinds of mangas every week/monthly issue. Usually, these comics are black&white, but sometimes they have colored pages too.

One Piece (Eiichiro Oda)
Finding a more exhilarating, expansive, compelling Manga is difficult than Eiichiro Oda’s “One Piece”. Since its debut in 1997, it has become one of the most popular Manga of all time. By 2009, it had sold over 100 million copies. Despite growing popularity, many people remain unaware of the series’ extensive and deeply complex lore, which has roots in Japanese mythology and culture.
It has been a year since Boku Dake Inai Machi became a TV anime series and a whole year after the Manga’s ending. It is still unclear whether there will ever be a sequel or not, but the cases of Satoru Fujinuma are far from over. It was released on April 12th in Japan, adding another piece to this franchise’s (And author Kei Sanbe’s) continuous workflow.
The story begins after Satoru has disappeared and resurfaces as an adult, but still intact his past life memories. He is now married to Airi and living happily together in the city where they first met. However, he hasn’t been able to forget his original goal, which was to save Kayo Hinazuki and thus continues working part-time at the bakery near where Kayo lived without revealing himself to her. It has 2 seasons, Erased season 2 is trending now a days. The Erased Season 2 Netflix release date is not final. But it may be released at the end of 2021 or in the mid of 2022.
Hunter x Hunter (Yoshihiro Togashi)
The manga Hunter x Hunter is the story of Gon, a young boy who left his home and became a professional hunter to find his father. It’s also about Killua Zoldyck, whose family was imprisoned for committing crimes against the state. Kurapika lost his clan and friends to Nen-using bandits, Leorio, who dreams of earning tons of money by becoming a doctor and many others throughout their journey together while attending the most prestigious institution on proper training of hunters.
1999 – 2014 Naruto(Masashi Kishimoto)
Naruto is an orphaned boy (Uzumaki Naruto) who wishes to become Hokage, the ninja in his village. As the Manga progresses, the story focuses on Naruto’s teammate and closest friend (Sasuke Uchiha).
The most widely known character from Naruto Shippuden would have to be none other than Sasuke Uchiha due to his loner nature and lack of appearance outside of his flashback scenes. To this day, fans still split on what they think about him since he left with Orochimaru early in part 1. Part 2 brought a pretty big redemption arc for him, but it never quite reached that same level of tension from part 1.
