Wow that's a lot of things to answer. Lets see how far I go.

-Who is your least favorite mangaka?
Taiyo Matsumoto the creator of Black & White who proves that the Japanese artists should not try making a European style manga espeshally when they only have a vague idea of how to do it.

-Who is your favorite mangaka?
Hiroyuki Utatane for Countdown, Heaven's Prison, and Seraphic feather. Great art, plot, and characterization. He also make the most interesting hentai.

-Which mangaka has the most beautiful art?
Shirow Masamune is the best at this. He makes very beautiful characters and weapons with wonderfully detailed settings.

-Which mangaka/author has the best stories?
Chiho Saito is great with sorties. It is true that alot of them art alike but she does wonderful plots that reminds me half the time of a Shakesphearian work.

-Which mangaka/author has the most beautiful art style?
Kaori Yuki is my favorite when it comes to atmosphere and style. The gothic look is very appealing.

-Which publisher is your favorite?
I really like Del Ray for there great Quality in manga. I also liked Iorn Cat Studios when they were still around.

-Which publisher is your least favorite?
Probably CMX. There quality is very poor for there prices and the editing they do is beyond forgiveness.

-Which scanlator is your favorite?
Anime Waves does a very good job with some very interesting manga that is usually very accurate.

-Which scanlator is your least favorite?
Any scanlator that does it to licenced manga has my hate. I can't forgive anyone that disrespects the mangaka so much by disregarding the fact that their scans are causing people to not buy the mangaka's work.

-Which manga is your favorite series?
Beck: Mongolian Chop Squad. This is a great manga and a decent anime. THe jokes are fun, the moral is great, the characters make you wish them to succeed, and the plot pulls you into the series even though the art is not top class.

-Which manga is your favorite short story?
Indigo Blue by Satoru Ishihara This is a one shot I found at the end of Ishihara's series called The Boys Kill Tomorrow. This was a beautifully done piece of work and I don't usually consider Yaoi to have a top in anything besides art. And the art was indeed beautiful. The detail of one of the main characters tatoos was amazing and the plot was perfect for a one shot that short.

-Which manga is the funniest?
Perfect Girl Evolution (WallFlower) There is only one other manga I have found with the Main female character shooting blood out through her nose and while I think both are the best for this catagory. I find PGE to have extra charm when it come to jokes and I just like the main characters. Espeshally when Sunako is a chibi.

-Which manga is the saddest?
hmm I find the only sad story I really read was Saikano. But i don't find that sad. It is a great manga though.

-Which manga is the scariest?
I LIKE horror mangas... but they do not scare me. My favorite is Battle Royale. The concept is still fantastic in novel, movie, or manga form.

-Which manga is the most stupid?
Flowers & Bees had my vote for most stupid. Not only is the art bad you find yourself being told an unlikely story of an ordinary kid that wants to be a bishonen. Not only that but he deals with the crap of others and never learns from them or gets a backbone.

-Which manga is the most over-rated?
Inuyasha. No offence to fans but I find Inuyasha long, boring, and repeatative. The characters remind me of characters in the mangaka's previous work and I think the whole thiong is second rate to her better works like Urusei Yatsura or Orange Road.

-Which manga is the worst?
Black & White gets this title. Once again the mangaka tried using the European style... so the art is ugly, the characters are shallow with no depths, the plot is noexistant most of the time, and the violence has no sence to it.

-Which manga is the most annoying?
I find the Escaflowne shounen manga annoying. The character designed irk me beyond anything and the character's personality change from the original anime just make me want to toss the manga into a fire.

-Which manga is the most obscure manga you've seen?
...probablly Let DIE! This is actually a very well done manhwa. About a boy who wishes for his death to be delivered by someone he loves. Thus in order to get the other to kill him he tortures him metally and physically.

-Which manga is the most oldest manga you've seen?
Oniisama e or Lupin the III I really don't look at age all that much.

-Which manga is the most popular manga you've seen?
Inuyasha is the most poplular that I have seen... though I don't know why.

-Which manga was better as a anime?
Cowboy Bebop. I can't call the manga, manga... they felt so much like Doujinshi it was not funny.

-Which anime was better as a manga?
Scryed is one of the coolest mangas ever but the anime ticked me off for being so childish and stupid. Even if the anime was first what the mangaka did to the manga was pure magic from coming from that anime crap.

-Which manga do you want to see as a live action?
I want to see a Live Action of One. A live action drama about Eumpa making his way through the entertainment business would be a great drama series. Espeshally with the full cast of character in it as well.

-Which manga do you want to see as an anime?
I think Natural Honey Dormitory would make a great anime series. True it would be long but some of the jokes in there HAVE to be seen in motion.

-Which manga do you wish was real/live in?
None. That would be beyopnd scary though if I had to choose Junni Kokki. While dangerous I think it would be interesting.

-Which manga has your favourite scenes?
Heaven's Prison. Because a boy walking around with a large wooden stake impaling him asking people to help him is damn funny.

-Which manga has the best ending?
Nassica of the Valley of Wind definately gets props for it's ending. True nothing was resolved but it was not suposed to be. it was to show the battle was continuous and there could be no winner to it.

-Which manga has the worst ending?
X-day. I love the series but the ending was a bit TOO open. I felt like more was suposed to come.

-Which do you prefer, manga or anime?
Definately a manga fan. I like anime but manga is my hobby.

-Which manga are you currently reading?
Song of the Iron Angel

-How many manga do you own?
Around 600-700

...and I'll do the rest later.
I'll just randomly pick a question...

My favorite publisher and scanlator is Tokyopop [just because they have the most series] and I don't have a favorite scanlator.
Yay! *picks out a few questions* whee

-Which manga is your favorite series/short story?
Hm... I liked The One I Love by CLAMP 4laugh There's some really short stories, but I thought they're so cute and I really loved the kimono design in the first story!

-Which manga do you want to see as a live action or as an anime?
Hotaru no Mori! It was very short manga, but it was adorable. I'd love to see a short, animated movie or maybe a even sequel? heart

-Which manga is your favorite series?
Hard to say. Wish or Fruits Basket. I've always loved the more girly of manga, no matter how many series youo can toss at me. I love the entire storyline for both series, Furuba (or Fruuba, how ever you like to call it) being the more thought out since it has 11 books and counting. Wish only has 4 volumes.

-Which manga made you cry/scream/giggle/etc?
Don't kill me, but I've cried over Fruits Basket countless times. Especially when it came to Kyo and his inner battles, and Yuki when it came to Akito.

-Which manga were better as a anime, and vice versa?
Again, don't kill me, but Yu-Gi-Oh! was much better as an anime (gah, call me crazy, but I -used- to like Yu-Gi-Oh! back in its prime. Now, I'm disgusted with it). When I tried to read the manga, it was like reading a Dungeons and Dragons book. Too many rules for a person to read when half the time, no one even plays the game anyway. I dunno, the anime just suited me better.

But One Piece is definately a better manga. The anime ticks me off beyond belief.

-Which manga do you want to see as a live action or as an anime?
Definately Wish or Tokyo Babylon. Just to see what they would be like.

-Which manga has your favourite scenes? What are they?
Hellsing! XD I dunno. I just like them.

-Which do you prefer, manga or anime?
Manga. Reading helps teh brain, teh mind, and teh head.

-Which manga quotes do you like? What are they?
The multiple "Dammit"s or "DAMN"s from Rin-san and Kyo-kun heart

-Which manga are you currently reading?
Unfortunately, none at the moment. I just put down Volume 11 of Fruits Basket. I guess I could start reading Shaman King again...

-How many manga do you own?
Not very many, since I have a lack of money income. Therefore, I borrow! But I do subscripe to Shonen Jump, and I have about 20 manga of my own.
