The below are indeed separate - though similar - books:

30)   Bobobo-Bo Bo-Bobo, by Yoshio Sawai

31)   Bobobo-Bo Bo-Bobo, vol. 1-5, by Yoshio Sawai

Impressive!

My single favorite manga is probably Excel Saga, although my single favorite author is Doctor Tezuka.

Doctor Tezuka would make an excellent Batman villain.

I've always said that if I had access to a TARDIS and could arrange any comics crossover I wanted, an FF/Astro Boy crossover done by Lee, Kirby and Tezuka at the height of their powers is the one I'd want to see.

I'm surprised no Go Nagai.

What would you recommend?

Updated this with:

 

Another, by Hiro Kiyohara, adapted from novels by Yukito Ayatsuji. A fairly entertaining horror/mystery.  Sickly Tokyo high schooler Koichi is sent to live with his maternal grandparents out in the boonies. (His mom died right after he was born, and his dad is in India, for job-related reasons. Dads are often absent in manga.)  When he gets there, he is accepted reaasonably well by his local classmates, until one day he brefirends Mei, a somewhat odd, eyepatch-wearing girl, whose existence no one else acknowledges. Pretty soon, classmates and/or close relatives start dying, and Koichi has to figure out why.  Overall, it's pretty good. There's a twist at the end, that's a bit of a stretch, but not unbearable.  The art is quite good, and suits the style of the story.

 

Romeo x Juliet, with art by COM, adapted from animation by GONZO x SPWT, in its turn adapted from our Bill.  In Neo Verona, the cruel tyrant Lord Montague has all but wiped out the rival Capulet family an set jhimself up a dictator.  Juliet, the last surviving Capulet, lives in hiding as a boy, and rallies the resistance as the freedom fighter, the Red Whirlwind. One day she meets Lord Montague's son Romeo, and romance, as you have doubtless guessed, ensues, although the story does not quite follow the path you might expect.  In fact, I quite like this, especially as in this story, Romeo and Juliet are not the self-aborbed adolescent twits that they are in Shakespeare's play, but instead are concerned with the plight of the people around them.  Ther eis some manga-goofiness in this - Shakespeare himself is a character in this, as an ally of the Capulets, but overall it's a well-told story.  Again, the art is good in this one, too.

It can be a tad dark, but Devilman is pretty good. Probably his best known work is Cutie Honey. He's also credited with creating the first mecha series, Mazinger.  Of the three, I think Devilman is the best. All of them contain a fair amount of gore and a certain amount of perversion as well. Still, each has it's own strengths.

What would you recommend?

Interesitng. Have to take a look out for those.

Updated with the following:

 

Assassination Classroom, vol. 3: This is an odd one.  A mysterious creature who coems to be called "Koro" blows a hole in the Moon, and threatens to destroy the Earth on one year.  He insists on becoming the teacher of Kunugigaoka Junior High Class 3-E.    The only way the Earth will be spared is if his pupils can succeed in killing him - without any outside interference - before the year is up.  The kicker is that 3-E is the school's depository for academic underachievers, and Koro proves to be an excellent teacher, motivating his pupils to improve themselves. This in turn upsets the school administration, which doesn't like 3-E trying to rise above its designated place in school life.  This is the sort of thing I love manga for - just really "out there" stuff.

 

Big Hero 6, vol. 1, by Haruki Ueno. This appears to be an adaptation of the film, which I have not yet seen.

 

Black Lagoon, vol. 10, about a gang of gun-runners in Southeast Asia.  IT's bene about three years since vol. 9 came out, I figured this had been discontinued.

 

The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan, vol. 7. This is a sort of side-story to The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, featuring all the same characters, but in different relations to one another.

I've seen a few scans of Assassination Classroom and I've heard a few people rave about it. Definitely one I want to check out.
