Karakai Jōzu no Takagi-san has been excellent fun monthly read and I can see why it ended up on this list. Nishikata and Takagi are hilarious together with Nishikata get the brunt of Takagi antics. Though mostly she is stopping and reversing him trying to one up her, so you can say it is mostly his fault. I am surprised that no one has picked up the license for an official English translation yet. Here is hoping that since showing up on a list like this that somebody at one of the major publishers notices.

Me too, it's up there with The World God Only Knows as my most wanted manga license pick-up.

Well deserved first place. This manga is pure love and teasing (and it makes its name for good, it might as well be the best teasing-based first love romance manga out there).

Now, the question is "how many of these can I actually get in English". I really wish they would license more manga that doesn't have an anime.

Now that's something prizewise that's interesting. Not those "your name didn't make as a nomination for Oscar".
