I only read manga if I can get it in Japanese... but I haven't read any of the ones on your list, so I'm curious about this as well.

I really enjoyed 666 Satan (renamed O-Parts Hunter in the US). It's written by Seishi Kishimoto, the younger twin brother of the creator of Naruto. Unlike Naruto though, it doesn't get its influence from Japanese mythology so much as it does Judeo-Christian mythology and the Kabbalah.

It's pretty short as far as manga go, only about 76 chapters, but it is a good fun read.

I'm a big fan of Shuna no Tabi by Hayao Miyazaki.  It's a relatively short manga, with Miyazaki's distinctive and beautiful art, and his outstanding story-telling.  <nods>  It hasn't been officially released in the US, though, so it's a little hard to find over here.

D.Gray-Man wasn't an anime when I started reading the manga. I prefer to keep it that way in my head.
If I had any clue, would I be here?

Same here. Although, I have to admit, Allen has the cutest japanese voice I've ever heard. :)
