What do you consider entry-level manga?

>> No. 513 [Edit]
Entry-level? Well, off the top of my head...

Shounen
big 3 and other very popular jump manga (this would include Dragonball)
Azumanga/Yotsuba (since it seems to be the best known 4koma)

Jojo is pretty popular but I'm not sure if I'd call it entry-level since all the FABULOUS seems to scare newcomers away.

Shoujo
Not too sure about shoujo but judging by popularity, I would think something like Fruits Basket, Karekano, Hana yori Dango (though I guess the live action drama of Hana yori is more popular than the original manga itself)

Josei
Nana?
Nodame?

Seinen
Berserk
Monster/20CB/Pluto (kind of sad that not many people know about Happy or Yawara)
Vagabond/Slam Dunk (hmm, actually not sure how well read Slam Dunk is among the average Western anime/manga fan)

Good tastes are running rampant here.

I would add Ikigami to that list for Seinen. It's got excellent art and a story that is interesting and has lots of intricacies but isn't long winded, boring or overly complex.

I would consider Slam Dunk Shounen. Were you just pairing it with Vagabond because they're both Inoue works?

Either way I think it is a great entry level manga and deserves recognition.
>> No. 519 [Edit]
Depends on what you understand by 'entry-level' I guess.

Seconding >>513. Also:

- shounen: FMA and all other non-Jump fighting manga (Pandora Hearts, Soul Eater etc.)
- shoujo: Ouran, anything CLAMP, Kimi ni Todoke, Skip Beat, Dengeki Daisy
- seinen: Vinland Saga (a must), Lone Wolf and Cub, maybe BLAME
- josei: Hachimitsu to Clover, Usagi Drop, 3gatsu no Lion, maaaybe Shigeshoushi

Not sure how to classify Claymore but it definitely counts, too.

... That is, if you ask what actually is entry-level for most people. If you are curious about what you should begin with the list might be different (although it's okay as it is).

Oh yeah, it is a shounen but I accidentally put it under seinen because I grouped Inoue's works together.
