List Rules Vote up the best Western manga.

You might not expect that manga would focus on an American western aesthetic, but there's actually a whole genre of Western manga worth exploring. If you're a fan of the genre, use this list to help you find your next great read. 

Some of the best Western manga are by renowned artists like Tite Kubo, the artist behind Bleach and Osamu Tezuka, the man who basically invented manga. Also, Cowboy Bebop and Outlaw Star may technically take place in space, but their Western aesthetic still earns them a solid place in the genre. There are also more obscure titles that are also worth your time, like Go West!, a manga about a cowgirl in search of her missing parents. 

Each of these Western manga has something great to offer its readers. Vote up your favorites to let the world know which are truly the best of the best.
