ONE PIECE most moving manga

Advertisement

I must admit to being pretty much completely ignorant when it comes to manga, but I always suspect many of my visitors are avid readers, therefore I hope this pair of ranking surveys from DIMSDRIVE Research as part of their 138th Ranking Research into what manga made one cry and what manga would one recommend to others will be of interest.

Demographics

Between the 27th of March and the 3rd of April 2008 6,399 members of the DIMSDRIVE Research online monitor group completed a private internet-based questionnaire. 52.8% of the sample was female, 1.4% in their teens, 16.5% in their twenties, 36.0% in their thirties, 28.1% in their forties, 12.6% in their fifties, and 5.4% aged sixty or older.

About the only manga I’ve read has been Darling ha Gaikokujin, which I can recommend. Note that they are explicitly referring to books here, not TV or movie adaptations or original stories.

In Q1, men chose exclusively male-targetted titles for their top ten, but women had both male and female titles.
