You can't include DOGS for good art and forget Oh!Great's works. Tenjou Tenge, Airgear, Majin Devil, misc porn.
Classics need adding. Nausicaa, Akira, Lone Wolf & Cub, GTO.
I personally grew up loving 3x3 Eyes so I nominate that.
Death Note, ending aside, was addictive reading from beginning to end.
