(5 up after the jump)
4. Eiichiro Oda (2,212)
3. Akira Toriyama (3,704)
2. Fujiko F Fujio (4,715)
1. Osamu Tezuka (10,751)
It's not Ebisu-san??
There's no Hirohiko Araki?
Do it again.
So Rumiko Takahashi can't get into these rankings anymore?
This is already laughable seeing how Reiji Matsumoto is in there
I don't know who #9 is
Where's Machiko Hasegawa?
Fujio Akatsuka's popular in Japan, but what about internationally?
Out with Takehiko Inoue and in with Hirohiko Araki
A ranking without Katsuhiro Otomo www
Reiji Matsumoto's mangas suddenly make you want to stop reading them midway.
I initially thought it was because of his art, but I don't have any trouble with Fukumoto's mangas.
And his image of being involved in the Yamato copyrights trial is stronger than as a mangaka.
So shojo manga artists don't come up in rankings like this, huh
I don't understand the difference between Fujiko F and A?
Who created Doraemon? Parman? Hattori-kun? Korosuke?
Well, I guess I can agree with this ranking
Why isn't Naoki Urasawa there?
Master Keaton and Monster were the best.
I don't get why Adachi's in there
If you're talking about how huge the manga's influence is worldwide then Yoichi Takahashi's Captain Tsubasa should also be included

No Hayao Miyazaki, huh
Business-wise, I think Monkey Punch sensei should come up towards the top
Do you guys really think it's Osamu Tezuka?
Or are you just thinking that way because his image is glorified on TV?
Let's all answer properly and honestly.
Reiji Matsumoto and Monkey Punch were lucky because the anime adaptations became popular.
Almost no one read the original mangas, right?
If we were to come up with the Japanese representative within Japan, it's Tezuka.
If we were to come up with the Japanese representative for the rest of the world, it's Toriyama.
I don't think Eiichiro Oda should be above Reiji Matsumoto and Gou Nagai.
He won't even get into the top 10.
#1 is irreplaceable there.
Togashi won't be able to make his way in rankings like this, huh
