Hehe you can do better than me.  While I do like manga, I havn't read enough of it, and only a bit from each one of these, except Naruto.

1. Trigun Maximum
2. Naruto
3. Cowboy Bebop
4. Jing: King of Bandits
5. Full Metal Alchemist

Now if we included some online mangas, I'd have a bit more, because those are free.  Haha.  I do want to pick up some Rurouni Kenshin mangas sometime, and find the most recent Bleach mangas that are past the anime episodes.

1: Petshop of Horrors
2: Psychic Academy
3: Suki
4: SOS
5: Kare Kano
6: Instant Teen
7: Yu Yu Hakusho

That's all I got. If I had read Hajime No Ippo or Beck, they'd probably be on there, but I haven't.

Most of this hasn't changed in quite a while:
 
1.  Nausicaa: Been here ever since I read the first volume.  Will stay here forever.  
2. Gunnm/Battle Angel Alita: Another classic.  Greatest futuristic/alternative world created ever.
3. Angel Sanctuary: I don't find it to be one of the best out there any more, but it stays because it has a special place in my heart.   And Mad Hatter ftw.
4. Furuba: Yeah, I'm a hopeless shoujo fan.  Parakiss will make it here soon once I read more than just a few random chapters.
5. Count Cain: Magnificent manga.  Beats AS in every department, and that's saying A LOT.
6. Death Note:  Some of the best characters I've ever seen in manga history.
7. Boy Next Door: See a trend?
8. Yakitate! Japan: I dare you to not laugh once when reading this.  
9. Hikaru no Go: Reignited my interest in go.
10. Rurouni Kenshin: Enishi ftw.  The anime NEVER did him justice.
 
I have yet to read 20th Century Boys and Homonculus.  Desperately want to, but there's still loads of Furuba to finish.
Lolz Sig.

I know I put numbers for them, but they're not really in order. These manga might not be the best or the most original in everyone's eyes, but they're the manga I've enjoyed the most, and the ones I'm consistently excited about reading more of.
 
1. Death Note
2. Hot Gimmick
3. Eyeshield 21
4. From Far Away
5. Land of the Blindfolded
6. Petshop of Horrors
7. Blade of the Immortal
8. Azumanga Daioh
9. Fruits Basket
10. Nausicaa
 
Honorable mentions go to: Boys Next Door, which is the most compelling one-shot I've ever read, and Alichino, which has the most intricate art I've ever seen.

Not in particular order, BTW:
[list=1]
  • Monster - Naoki Urasawa > a whole lot of others by a longshot
  • Nana - Even I got the Nana-fever myself. I've always loved manga containing music and romance
  • Boys Be - Just for kicks with the myriad of god-blessed chicks
  • Beck - Another music-romance manga classic... plus, Maho is teh sexay
  • Ai Yori Aoshi - Aoshi is another teh sexay
  • Death Note - Everybody likes it... so why not me?
  • Kare Kano - The best chemistry between a on-two couple yet
  • Azumanga Daioh - Some light-hearted fun doesn't hurt at all anytime
  • Chobits - Another light-hearted fun doesn't hurt too, right?
  • Fruits Basket - At least I know what happens after the anime ended by reading this

2. From Far Away
3. Petshop of Horrors
4. Blade of the Immortal
5. Monster
6. ES: Eternal Sabbath
7. Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind
8. Azumanga Daioh

10. Dragon Head
 
Honorable mention goes to After School Nightmare, which has the most intriguing first volume I've seen in awhile.
