Yotsuba&! - Volume 6 came out in September 2009 by Yen Press

Future Diary - My newest manga series, put out by Tokyopop. Series is by Sakae Esuno. Three volumes out right now. For select participants, cell phones are given varied powers of prediction in this competion to the death. I like the art and the characters. Yuno is my favorite character.

Hey gang anyone still reading manga? I haven't kept up with anything recent but a few ongoing stories which have really wow'ed me:

Naruto: the depth at which this story has evolved has been quite fun to read over the years
Bleach: the new story arc seems intriguing. XCution shows there's still a lot to be told in this universe
Negima: it's reaching an end...or is it?

Ones I currently read are...

Full Metal Panic! Sigma - Got to know what happens after TSR. They said they won't continue the anime till the light novels are finished which I heard is happening soon (and may I say BIG SPOILERS HERE - Story twists and such). I really wish the anime can continue immediately.
Nana to Kaoru - This is practically hentai. I'm not into bondage. I just find it funny how they can make a story on "experimenting" bondage yet seem normal.
NEEDLESS - Again to see the real story than the anime. By the way, TRAP!
Saki - Again to see after the anime. ;)
To Aru no Railgun - And again ;) Kinda disappointed by the Sisters arc. Interesting but was expecting more for some reason.
SOUL EATER - And once again. But I don't really like the story. It is flying into various "arcs". Seems to me the main story got lost IMO.
BLEACH - The new arc might be interesting. But I was heavily disappointed by the Aizen arc. It looked like they quickly wrapped up and the build up of the hollow Ichigo was like "resolved" in a sense. I mean really :(

So pretty much I am reading the manga versions to see the continuation or a better telling of the story. There is a bunch more but those are the only ones I have in my RSS reader that had feeds to remind me of a new chapter.

ONE PIECE. Pretty much the best contemporary shounen manga out there.

You need to get past those chapters to really see what makes One Piece tick. I can understand if you're not into shounen much, fair enough. There's no excuse if you're reading/watching Bleach or Naruto though. I was skeptical at first too, but One Piece beats them both hands down.

Yeah, One Piece is a little slow in the beginning-much like Bleach was, but once you get past the East Blue arc, it really starts to pick up. Besides Bleach, it's the only other shounen series I read and watch. If you still dislike it by the time you come across Smoker and Tashigi, then it's likely not a series you will get into.

Chapter 518 reminded me of the old Dragonball days.
