When it comes to the japanimation industry, there are a lot of things to say on the subject. There are so many stories to tell that one could lose count. What is the best manga in the world? The fans of manga and anime could argue on this topic all the time without agreeing.
The Asahi TV channel tried to answer this question with a massive poll.
The fan’s choice
On the question of the best manga of all time, the first names that are mentioned are quite obvious. Popular franchises like Demon Slayer, Attack on Titan or My Hero Academia are on this list. Although several franchises take similar approaches, the stories are always unique with charismatic heroes.
But, we cannot omit in this list franchise names like One Piece and Dragon Ball. Combat-oriented manga, investigation manga, sports manga, the list of genres present in the list are quite varied. And to get an idea of the ranking established by the survey conducted by Asahi, here is what it is.
The list of the best manga of all time

The adventure goes on
The manga industry is not yet out of breath and new stories are continually emerging. New franchises are taking off and coming close to certain iconic franchises. This has already been seen in recent years with Jujutsu Kaisen and Demon Slayer who are shaking up the hierarchy established for a long time.
In the lot, we can not exclude the Attack on Titans which since its appearance has caused a real tidal wave within the industry. Although the King of Shonen, One Piece seems to know no competition, his dominance isn’t what it used to be. Publishers such as Kodansha, Weekly Shonen Jump and many more are very happy with all this influx of new manga which are gaining popularity.
Names like Spy x Family and Chainsaw Man fit perfectly with this trend. In addition, other manga could well hatch in the next few years, especially with the help of the internet. The future therefore looks very bright for the Japanese animation industry. And we can not imagine for a single moment that its flight could one day be stopped.
