Looking for some manga with some massive adventures to keep you busy ‘til the end of summer? Look no further, here’s the list for you!

One Piece by Eiichiro Oda

“As a child, Monkey D. Luffy dreamed of becoming King of the Pirates. But his life changed when he accidentally gained the power to stretch like rubber…at the cost of never being able to swim again! Years later, Luffy sets off in search of the “One Piece,” said to be the greatest treasure in the world…”

Hunter x Hunter by Yoshihiro Togashi

“Hunters are dedicated to tracking down treasures, magical beasts, and other men, but to become a hunter, less than one in a hundred thousand are capable of passing the grueling qualification exams.”

Dragon Ball by Akira Toriyama

“A seminal series from a legendary creator. Dragon Ball, a wry update on the Chinese ‘Monkey King’ myth, introduces us to Son Goku, a young monkey-tailed boy whose quiet life is turned upside-down when he meets Bulma, a girl determined to collect the seven ‘Dragon Balls.’ If she gathers them all, an incredibly powerful dragon will appear and grant her one wish. But the precious orbs are scattered all over the world, and to get them she needs the help of a certain super-strong boy.”

Dr. Stone by Riichiro Inagaki

“One fateful day, all of humanity was petrified by a blinding flash of light. After several millennia, high schooler Taiju awakens and finds himself lost in a world of statues. However, he’s not alone! His science-loving friend Senku’s been up and running for a few months and he’s got a grand plan in mind–to kick-start civilization with the power of science!”

Bofuri: I Don’t Want to Get Hurt, So I’ll Max Out My Defense by Jirou Oimoto

“Kaede Honjou has never been much of a gamer. So when her best friend, Risa, ropes her into trying out the hit new VRMMO NewWorld Online, her biggest concern is… whether it will hurt! Her solution? To dump all her stat points into defense! She may not have anything in the way of magic, agility, or strength, but her extreme build transforms her from a total noob into a nigh-invulnerable walking fortress the game’s admins never accounted for!”
