From action to romance, comedy and drama, the fantastic to the mundane, there's quality manga to be found whatever your passion. For me, it tends toward science fiction and the comedic, though there's a bit of everything to be found in my collection. In fact, Gunnm, or Battle Angel Alita as it is better known in the West, is not only my favorite manga series, but pretty much one of my favorite stories altogether, and my love for it has even seen me import several volumes, including paying close to $100 for one, just for the limited edition Revoltech figure that came with it, simply because there aren't any other 'proper' figures of Gally/Alita to be found. With the walls of manga that are available at many major bookstores and comic shops, I am actually somewhat picky about what comes home with me. Anime plays a large role in this, where if I enjoyed what I've watched, I'll often go out and pick up the manga for more time with the characters/world. Beyond that though, my purchases will be driven by the concept or the art, preferably both, and occasionally I'll track down works by a particular creator, like Yukito Kishiro and Masamune Shirow.
