The music genre has always been one of the most popular ones in anime, however, it is also the same for mangas, which may not make readers hear the music, but they have surely inspired a lot of people and have gained a huge following.

Japanese women’s website, MyNavi Woman has taken a look at one aspect of the music genre, the bands, who unlike the more prominent idol genre, relies not only on vocals but the instruments as well. The website asked working women and here is what they had to say:

1) Nana by Ai Yazawa

NANA.(Series).600.531714

These band mangas have certainly inspired plenty of Japanese live-action dramas, movies, and of course, anime, and #1 ranked Nana has done both anime and live-action quite well. Its win comes to absolutely no surprise as the manga has been loved by female readers not only in Japan, but also the world.

Speaking of unsurprising, if there is any manga to challenge Nana in terms of popularity, it would be K-On! as Kikaifly’s now classic manga has inspired an anime, which itself has inspired many Japanese to take up music.

Other notable titles in the list include Beck and Detroit Metal City which have rocked out readers even if they cannot hear the music being shown in the manga.
