For those of us who live out our wanderlust through reading, here are the best adventure manga titles of all time. It's tough to say what constitutes an adventure manga somtimes. For example, is One Piece a true adventure manga? It's classified as adventure, but there are also a lot of fighting elements to the series that some of the other top adventure manga don't have. Sometimes titles are classified as "action/adventure" but for this poll we're really trying to highlight manga that is purely about adventuring, with not as much action or fighting.

If you're new to the genre, some great starting points are Spice and Wolf, Magician, and Kubera. Use this as a guide to finding good adventure manga, but if you've read a lot of these titles, please vote up the ones that you think are truly the greatest.
