Are there any notable Shounen manga that are worthy of being called greatness?

If so can please you list a few, I'm quite curious to know.

With notable seinen manga such as: Blade of the Immortal, Berserk, Homunculus and Monster being so well done in both art style and storyline its hard to imagine that there are many shounen mangas that can compare in terms of quality content.

Real talk here, One Piece was a legitimately good series for a long time.

Not anymore, it's been steadily turning into the fan-pandering trash that is indicative of shounen. But if you cut out the thriller bark arc and most of the post-time skip material, you have a pretty notable manga series.

speak for yourself faggot

What do you even think shounen means OP?
Just fuck off.

Ichigo Mashimaro
Aria

Ashita no Joe and Hokuto no Ken are two examples that come to my mind, where they were serialized in a shonen magazine, but could easily be aimed at young adults nowadays as well.

it means fuck of this thread if you have nothing to contribute aside from shitposting
>>
>>100045987
Great grammar.
Now respond, what is a shonen?
>>
Aria, a show about nothing.

>>100045987
This thread is shitposting

>Blade of the Immortal, Berserk, Homunculus and Monster

Devilman is better than all of those.

Blade of the Immortal turned to shit quite quickly, it's only merit being the art.
Berserk same deal
Homunculus was great.
Monster is Urasawa's worst major work. Haven't read Billy Bat yet though.
>>
>>100046115
I think Billy Bat is too high on the crazy conspiracy scale. It has shit like Billy the Bat pre-dating Jesus and shit like that.
>>
>>100045782
Is there really a need to comparate those two genres ?
Also Monster is overrated.

>implying characters like usopp, robin, and chopper are even remotely as interesting as they were before now that they've 'developed' and overcome their previous flaws
>implying the new character designs (both physical and behavior-wise) aren't obvious fan service feeding off the same jokes and running gags we've had for over a decade
>implying this powerlevel bullshit isn't running out of control
>hue i'm luffy and I can take out FIFTY THOUSAND FISHMAN AT ONCE WITH MY WILLPOWER
>le hurr hurr hurr i'm caesar clown and I'm essentially hitler and i commit genocide wow such evil
>not a single fucking person dies as a result of his actions except for 2 of joker's operatives who you don't even give a fuck about

this is off the top of my head

One Piece is no different from any other shounen trash nowadays

Black Jack shits on those.

Good job getting upset over nothing.

MW shits on BlackJack.

I read a lot of Shonen and while there are good shonen, and very stupid Seinen, I think it'd be pretty hard to have a "master piece shonen" simply because of the demographic it has to appeal to. If someone was going for a true work of art then they would probably go to a seinen magazine in the first place just so they wouldn't have to be worried about being stifled by the editors worried about what is appropriate and what isn't.

That being said, there are some very good shonen out there. Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro is a great example of that.


Pluto is my favorite seinen btw.
