Yeah, I want to know what everyone's favorite manga title is from Dark Horse. I've already listed some of mine on the comments page but my top Dark Horse manga would have to be Blade of the Immortal just because it is so amazing. The art, the story, the everything is just plain amazing.

Feel free to tell us what your favorite Dark Horse title is.

I have to say that my personal favorite manga done by Dark Horse isn't really a manga at all, but rather a series of novels. These are their Vampire Hunter D novels which are written by Hideyuki Kikuchi and beautifully illustrated by Yoshitaka Amano. If you like either one of the Vampire Hunter D movies you should definitely check them out.

...But if we are just talking about manga, as in the actual comic manga then I'd have to say that the best that I've read from Dark Horse would have to be XS Hybrid simply because it is so exciting and high octane, even if I don't fully grasp the plot yet.

(And for all you comic fans who like American comics just as much as manga then you should check out Dark Horse's Tales of the Jedi line which is set several thousand years before the original trilogy. It's freaking awesome, really I mean it.)

This is a hard one to answer for me. I love a lot of their series, but my current favourite would have to be Kurosagi Corpse Delivery. I love the humour and the crazy situations the characters get themselves into. :)

Sorrow: Blade of the Immortal is awesome, but I haven't been keeping up with it. Are you looking forward to the anime?

I think so, but I feel that you may wish to look up any information you can find and see if it is for you. :)

Jen: I was looking forward to the anime but it didn't turn out all that great. Then again thats my response after only one episode so we shall see. I'm about to watch ep.2. Yeah, another good title from DH is Who Fighter with Heart of Darkness. Looks boring but very interesting.

Actually, One Missed Call is very good Japanese horror. Some very disturbing and freeky-deeky stuff.

Don't let the name fool you, this is what the American movie of the same name that was recently released is based on but this is so much better. (American studios in general seem to screw up any Japanese horror they can get their hands on. Case and point: The Grudge and the Ring) Also, the original Japanese films have been released in a boxed set for about thirteen bucks. Really good films and really good manga. If you like scary stuff check it out.

Ghost in the Shell or Appleseed, and Hellsing...Over all, though, it would have to be GitS.

Trigun and Trigun Maximum are my favorite from Dark Horse, and are my favorite all around manga wise. I've been reading more of Blade of the Immortal recently and I'm really enjoying it. The art is kickass and story is crafted just so well.

Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service. I love how it tackles topics that most manga won't touch (such as Japanese atrocities committed during WWII), how it remains humorous while dealing with the most gruesome topics, and the hint of an on-going storyline, despite its mostly episodic nature.

Berserk on first place, and Gantz with BotI just after that. Didnt read anything better than Berserk. Though its annoying that one chapter comes in 1 or 2 months
