Hello! I'm Nettik, and I've been on FanFiction.Net for eight years already.

My opinion: You must read Gintama.
Summary (taken from Baka-Updates): Sakata Gintoki is a samurai living in an era when samurais are no longer needed. To add to his troubles, oppressive aliens have moved in to invade. Gintoki lives with Kagura and Shinpachi, taking on odd jobs to make the world a better place... and to pay their rent.
Don't be fooled by the plot summary. Gintama is the funniest gag manga you'll ever read, and it parodies the ever-loving shit out of everything. I cannot believe how many times I skipped this manga just because it didn't look interesting or the combination of samurai and aliens didn't interest me. You can either read the manga or watch the anime - the anime is very faithful to the manga, and the voice-acting and music are just superb. Gintama has about 265 episodes, but you shouldn't be intimidated because Bleach, Naruto, and One Piece all have waaaay more episodes than Gintama does (and I bet you watch all of them).
Honestly, Gintama is one of the manga you have to give another try. I literally dropped it two times. The first time I read up to chapter 20 before bookmarking it and forgetting it. I picked it up again about three months later and read up to chapter 40 or so before doing the exact same thing. This past winter break I finally picked it up again for a third time, and I just fell in love. Hard.
Gintama is just so hard to describe because it's so amazing. It has the best cast of characters you'll ever meet, and you'll come to love each and every single one of them. I'm sad whenever people say they only want to see the action in Gintama. Gintama is comedy first, everything else second - there is no plot and it's episodic. The hardest part about getting into Gintama is that you need to get used to the humor. If you don't watch/read a lot of anime or manga, or you're too young, you won't get Gintama's humor. The manga's art, especially in the beginning chapters, can be pretty bad, but realize that Gintama is a ten-year old series that's still running.
I really, really, really recommend Gintama. Even if you don't like it at first, try again later. And again, and again, and again. One day, you'll just get Gintama and love it, and you'll wonder why you didn't like Gintama in the first place.
(And yes, I am advertising Gintama. I am not ashamed of my love for it.)
"If One Piece teaches you how to pursue your dreams, then Gintama teaches you how to live on even if your dreams have shattered."
"Don't be stupid. Stand up. If you have time to think of a beautiful end, then why not live beautifully until the last?"
"Everyone's carrying something that matters. You just don't realize when you're carrying it. It's only after it slips out of your hand that you realize how heavy it was in the first place. So many times I thought that I'd never carry a load like that ever again. And yet, before I realized it, I was carrying it again. I'd feel so much better if I just got rid of it. But I just can't bring myself to do it."
"Trying to shoulder the burden all by yourself? Don't be a stranger. Weep and ask for help. Lean on me with your runny nose. Cry when you feel like crying. Laugh when you feel like laughing. When you're tearing up with an ugly face, I'll give you a good cry with an uglier face. When you're laughing so hard your stomach hurts, I'll laugh in a louder voice. That's how it should be."
