You probably know of Watchmen's incredible fame and everything surrounding it; how its won awards and claimed to be the best graphic novel ever. So here's a question - what do you think the manga equivilent of Watchmen is? I would personally answer Akira; it's stood the test of time and inspired all around the world. Ozuma Tesuka I feel is more the equivilent of Will Eisner. What do you say?

(Um, this needs to be in the manga section please)

There's some manga called like Pluto or Mars written by the Monster guy that's critically acclaimed by legit literary outlets and critics.

Madoka and Evangelion are similar to Watchmen in that they became really popular and they flipped their genre on it's head.
