For a title to be considered the best adult manga, the story has to do more than just throw sex and violence in our faces. All the good adult-oriented manga I've read turn conventional plots on their heads, and deliver something that is unique, bizarre, and thought-provoking. Do you like super popular series like Aiki, Attack on Titan or Vagabond? Do you have a more obscure favorite that you would strongly recommend to other adults who need a good manga to read? Vote on the poll below so that the true #1 adult manga title ends up being a universally loved favorite.
 
You can add any deserving series that you think has been overlooked, as long as they are adult themed manga. Vote for others you like on this list, but only if you've actually read the title you're voting on.
