    "Would have asked Google to erase the site if I saw any other manga aside from One Piece on the top of this list. It's not the top selling manga of all time for nothing! It's got comedy, romance, friendship lessons, family lessons, and exploring Oda's world does not tire you out, in fact I find every arc as intriguing as the next! And *SPOILER ALERT* who didn't cry when Going Merry saved the day only to sink to the bottom of the sea? MAN! THIS MANGA, one of the few that makes you want it to last forever but also want to see how it ends. Will Luffy be the Pirate King, or will Shanks get the title? Or will some random guy take the cake? You want to know the answers but you also want to go on more adventures with the Strawhats!!! "

    "I'm the biggest Naruto fan in my region, believe me, and it has a lot to do with his relatable story in the beginning. But Masashi did a good job of allowing his readers grow up with his characters! This is the best manga for me, better than One Piece or any of that Dragon Ball stuff. Don't @ me, don't waste time. "

    "I've read a lot of manga since I was dispatched to Tokyo in my youth, and lemme tell you, there are only a handful of very fulfilling manga other than FMA, and I've read them all! The rebellion and the Homunculus topics were well presented, and Ed and Al are just golden for comedy! Deeper than it looks,but still has tints of light refreshing content, can't say that for others.

So let me break it down for yah, Nobara is a girl whose the heiress to running a female tea hosting restaurant. But Nobara doesn't want that burden, all she wants to do is play volleyball, she's incredibly passionate about volleyball and will do whatever she can to get it up and running at the school she's now attending. Sometimes she gets mistaken for a boy, causing really cute humor when one boy (Yuushin) grabs her chest thinking she's a guy. So Nobara leaves her home when her mother pushes her too far and Nobara's aunt, a nurse at the school she's attending, decides to help her little niece out. Nobara is now the house mom for the male volleyball team. On top of tending to the boys, and scarring them for life with her underwear hanging up in the wash room, poor Nobara needs to put together a team so she can play. What's a girl to do? And to make things a little more interesting it seems Haibuki, one of the boys from the team had a long time crush on Nobara. Finally as Nobara gets a few hesitant team members she finds grafitti written on her painstakenly made posters, and the suspects are the male volleyball team. And so the first manga ends on a cliffy when Nobara challenges the boys' team to a volleyball match."
