For today's "Rate The Mangaka" poll, I went for my personal favorite mangaka.

Renowned by several fans in both the Eastern and Western parts of the world, Naoki Urasawa is well beloved for being one of the best, if not THE Best, suspense thriller genre mangaka in recent times. Not only is he good at atmosphere building but also fills his work with fleshed out and compelling characters and innovative world building. He also displays impressive detailed artwork in comparison to most other mangakas nowadays. Urasawa is best known for 20th Century Boys and it's sequel, 21st Century Boys, Monster and Yours truly's favorite manga of all time (and my first reading recommendation for anyone who wants to read manga), an extensive reimagination of a classic Astroboy story known as "Pluto".

Never read any of his manga. But probably a 5 from what everyone says about him.

20th Century Boys alone gives him a five.
