    I think I'll just list some common concept used to make title... (since we're talking about title, I will talk all kind of title, not only manga, since I believe that manga title and other medium title is more or less the same).

    - The easiest is just use the protagonist name is the title. Ex: Naruto, Blue Submarine no.6 (name of the submarine), Doraemon. Kagetora, Superman, Batman, Flash, Captain America, etc etc...

    - You could even further add a "subtitle" to the name. Ex: Jiguko Sensei Nube (Nube is the name, Jigoku Sensei means Teacher from Hell), Asuka Hybrid (Asuka is the protagonist while hybrid since she was a he... you know what I mean ^_^), Rurouni Kenshin, Mirai Nikki (Nikki is the protagonist, Mirai/Tomorrow is because he could "predict" the future), Tekken Chin-mi, Yu-Gi-Oh (The name is Yugi, Oh/Ou is King).

    - You also could use "title" or "job" of the protagonist as the title. Ex: Nurarihyon no Mago, Phoenix Wright : Ace Attorney, Needless (title given to people who have the "power"), Defense Devil (a manga about devil who become a defense lawyer), Ex-Driver (title given to driver who use vehicle to catch bad guys).

    - You could also use name of skill that used by the protagonist, or commonly used by people at the manga. Ex: Freezing, Cross-over, Ghost Trick, Zero-In (the name of unique martial art that exist in that manga).

    - Or you could even resort to use term that commonly associated with manga that you make. Ex: Shoot (soccer manga), Break-Shot (billiard manga), Dribble (another soccer manga), Katana (though this is about blacksmith manga, not a samurai manga), Vagabond (a travelling/ronin samurai). Some more vague example: You Are Under Arrest (reminds you of what cop usually say), Bamboo Blade (reminds you of Kendo)

    - If your manga have some kind of "gimmick" or especially unique thing (could be anything unique, from unique name, location, term, anything...) in it, you could use it. Ex: Apple Seed, Angelic Layer, ZOIDS, One Piece (the greatest treasure in the manga that everyone want to get a hold of), Deadman Wonderland ("one-in-the-world" prison in said manga).

    - You could even simply said what is your manga all about. Ex: Mafia, Supernatural, Heroes, Ninja, Shinobi.

    How about now then? I gave you a basic summary. You think you can give me a title now or should I add more.

    Errr... I just give you some title example so you could think it better by yourself, since like I said, no one other than you, could think the best title for your own manga.

    Basically, what I'm trying to say is someone needs to make a manga called Tom Raider, now. I suppose it could play out as a man named Tom who raids shit, or, I suppose, as a porno involving Lara Croft and some guy named Tom.
    Please do a script and send it to Rio for the contest.

    Man I'm still laughing, we should make a thread about Tom Raider.

    I'd be tempted to, except I don't think a hentai would be acceptable, and I don't think there's enough comedy behind the concept of "Tom Raider" to really get a whole manga. Maybe a single image.

    Do you like big boobs? Dragons? Ninja? Martial arts? Wizards? Then click here and make all your wildest dreams come true!!

    I think in a comedy sense, it has enought for a short comic or various shorts comics, for example using one short as "Tom Raider in Raiding a Box" and you present Tom like the Crocodile Hunter who is in an adventure to raid a box (not in a sexual maner).

    I think I could use it as a interlude in a bigger comic.
