If you're like some manga fans, you find yourself wondering about the characters in your favorite series' families. If that's you, you should be reading manga that's all about family relationships. This list of great family manga can help guide you to your next great read. 

If you like your family stories dramatic and intense, try Natsuki Takaya's Fruits Basket, a family manga that focuses on the Sohma family, who are cursed to transform into the animals of the Chinese Zodiac upon contact with the opposite sex. This leads to some funny moments, but it also leads to isolation and abuse, especially at the hands of Akito, the family head. If you're looking for something a little more realistic and positive, try With The Light by Keiko Tobe, a manga about a woman trying to raise her autistic son to be a happy and productive adult. Another great choice is Gengoroh Tagame's My Brother's Husband, which looks at how LGBTQ+ families operate. There's plenty of amazing family manga to choose from. 

Which family manga deserves the top spot? That's up to you. Let the world know how you feel by voting up your favorites.
