    And how could I forget about this one too, Tsukasa Hojo. He created some manga (Cat's Eye, Family Compo, Angel Heart), but his only notable (and very famous) manga is City Hunter. His drawing is very good and unique, not many could draw like that. And he's also have a good sense of humor.

    hmmm I'd saaaay, Inoue Takehito.
    If you look at his recent work and the later chapters of Slam Dunk, you'd learn a lot from his use of panels. The story just flows as if you're watching it in real life.

    Art wise, I'd also say Takeshi Obata, although I cant really say anything about the current stories the team has been working on. Bakuman really has been dragging lately

    No one has mentioned Seo Kouji? I think he is great, his artwork is nice and his stories are also good, he one of the only two mangakas in which I have read more than one of their works, the other one being Yabuki Kentaro, but he has already been mentioned.

    I'd say Kohta Hirano for the amazing art style of Hellsing (although it doesn't start until the third volume) and Drifters.

    Tsukasa Hojo accepted, Hellsing is certainly a very good manga, but i dont know if that makes him as one of the "best ever" or not (i'm not really sure so further persuasion is required)...
    im thinking about kubo and kishimoto, they certainly have made good mangas and they have a fair share of popularity around the world, wont that make them a part of the most successful mangakas ever existed?

    - Tezuka Osamu (Astro Boy, Black Jack, Phoenix, Red Buddha, etc.)
    - Tsutomu Nihei (Blame!, Biomega)
    - Naoki Urasawa (Monster, 20th Century Boys)
    - Hirohiko Araki (JoJo's Bizarre adventure)
    - Eiichiro Oda (One Piece)
    - Miura Kentaro (Berserk)
    - Masamune Shirow (Ghost in the Shell, Apple Seed)
    - Yabuki Kentaro (Black Cat, To Love-Ru)
    - Akira Toriyama (Dragon Ball)
    - Otomo Katsuhiro (Akira)
    - Hara Tetsuo (Fist of the North Star)
    - Fujiko Fujio (Doraemon)
    - Hiro Mashima (Rave Master, Fairy Tail)
    - Inoue Takehiko (Slam Dunk, Vagabond)
    - Obata Takeshi (Hikaru no Go, Death Note, Bakuman)

    Eiichiro Oda is great, but I think he need to do more works before be named a great mangaka.
    CLAMP, I know everyone loves it, but many of their works are bad. For my this is a team who knows how to sell, but its not constant in doing good stories.
    The same with Obata Takeshi, he is great, but he is not constant. And Yabuki Kentaro also fails to be part of the greatest.

    I'm not saying those are bad, but not greatest.

    Also that list needs: Shigeru Mizuki and Hayao Miyazaki (and of course there are other mangakas who need to be there, but those are extremely important).
