No. 5 (Japanese: ナンバーファイブ Hepburn: Nanbā Faibu?) is a Japanese fantasy adventure seinen manga created by Taiyo Matsumoto. Originally serialized in Shogakukan's Ikki manga magazine. It ran for eight volumes.

Viz Media, who beforehand had published Matsumoto's Black & White (and later Blue Spring), released the first English-translated volume in a dust-jacket format closer to Western comics standards. The second volume was released in 2003, but due to incredibly bad sales (roughly less than 1000 copies of both volumes together sold), the series was instantly discontinued. Neither volume received a second printing run, and so is believed to be a rare manga in today's market. It was published in French by Kana.[1]
