(In no particualar order)
1- Kinnikuman(I love how unique and crazy it is. Also Suguru is one of my favorite anime characters period.)
2- Yu Yu Hakusho(A rare fighting series that takes time to develop the characters before the Ass kicking begins).
3- One Piece(I love the whole romantic adventure feel to it)
4- Eyeshield 21(The art is excellent and it's hard not to root for the Devil Bats)
5- Hokuto no Ken(Gorgeous art and ultra violence punctuated by the occasional melancholy scene)
6- Jojo's Bizarre Adventure(I like how strange it is and the intelligent feel of the fight scenes.)
7- Saint Seiya(Greek Myth is one of my hobbies, and in addition to using that as a visual motif, the series heroes' physical vulnerability fits the gimmick well.)
8- Dragon Ball(Yeah, Yeah, I know that I'll get shit for this one, but I feel that the manga suffers from almost none of the problems that the anime did, and I'm willing to overlook them to spend some time watching some of my favorite characters take part in some of the bes choreographed fight scenes around.)
9- Black Jack(Osamu Tezuka's best shonen work. The crazy medical melodrama really drew me in.)
10-Fullmetal Alchemist(A shonen series with real intelligence! OH MY GOD!)

Honorable Mentions:
Shaman King(I like it, but it's just too by the book for it to be on my favorites)
Mazinger Z(The absence of sympathetic characters keeps it down)
Captain Tsubasa(I just don't like it enough)
Slam Dunk(The art is just sort of...blah)
Kekkaishi(See Shaman King and Slam Dunk)
Devilman(It's too damn short!)
Naruto(Dear God, it Draaaaaaaaaaaaaaaags)

Top 10 shounen mangas, right? Not shounen animes, well let me see...

Top 10 so far are:

1 Beck
2 Slam Dunk
3 Suzuka
4... From the 4th place I can tell that: Eyeshield 21, Ichigo 100%, I"s, Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro, Double Arts, H2, Rurouni Kenshin, Mx0, Hoop Men (maybe), Hokuto no Ken (maybe) and Dragon Ball (maybe) all them are good mangas, but I don't know what positions they would be.

And I know I put more than ten mangas but all them would dispute the first 10 places.

PS: I considered only mangas finished, mangas ongoing like One Piece, Good Ending, Fullmetal Alchemist, Mirai Nikki, Psyren, Sket Dance, etc...I don't considered them.

I don't get why people added "Kuroshitsuji" to their list. I don't think it's Shounen at all and I won't be including it in mine.

Anyway, the list:

1. Claymore
2. Slam Dunk
3. Yankee-kun to Megane-chan
4. Bakuman
5. Medaka Box
6. Detective Conan

The rest are crap and don't need to be mentioned.

Just like how they always want to publish in Jump in Bakuman, which is also by the same author and artist as all of us probably know.

1. One Piece
2. Eyeshield 21
3. Full Metal Alchemist
4. Hayate no Gotoku
5. The World God Only Knows
6. Dragon Ball
7. Ichigo 100%
8. I"s
9. Great Teacher Onizuka
10. Beck

These are just from the top of my head, some might change if I think about it more.
I wish people would stop mixing shounens with seinens.

My choices are pretty boring because I don't read enough shounen. orz

Fairy Tail
Ao no Exorcist
Deadman Wonderland
Tegami Bachi
Nabari no Ou
Fullmetal Alchemist

PeaceMaker, Shaman King, and +ANIMA were the only other ones I could think of that I really liked, so it wasn't too hard a list. :p I read more seinen and josei.
