too hard to really choose only 5 out of all my favorite mangakas but I guess in terms of art and story, I'd say the top 5 mangaka are

Oh Great! (tenjo tenge, air gear, majin devil, etc, etc, etc...)
Kaori Yuki (angel sanctuary, count cain)
Miura Kentaro (Berserk)
Yang Kyung-Il (Shin Angyo Onshi, Island, Zombie Hunter)
Toume Kei (Hitsuji no Uta aka Lament of the Labs, Sing Yesterday For Me, etc, etc, etc...)

im not to well cultured about mangaka's but the one who does nana, para kiss.... i think her works are amazing although her stories are a bit depressing, but the fashion in them are also AMAZING

also nicky lee is really goo, she wrote youth gone wild and the one which are both really good reads. the art and fashion is really good in them also the story line keeps you guessing

and finally the one who did hana yori Dango(sp?) her lastest manga , cat street is really good. the story line is one which i have never read in typical shoujo but it works amazingly well and for thouse who didn't like HYD, the mangaka has matured hugely in her works and would recommed cat street.

these are the one which stand out for me.

Those two are way above the others.

Yamane Ayano
Asami Yuuko/Obata Takeshi

I may have forgotten some but as I'm supposed to choose 5, it only made it a little bit easier. eyes
