I don't understand it, but it seems like Immortal Rain has somehow been overlooked in the uprise of Naruto, Death Note, etc... I think Immortal Rain is the best! It has the best action, the best romance, and the best characters/character development of any manga I have ever read, plus the artwork is incredible. Why hasn't anyone heard of it!?

I absolutely agree with u, for me this series has everything. Action, Romance, sci-fi, fantasy, adventure, awesome story!! I came across with it loking for something to read and the tittle was different it was Methusaleiah or something like that but from the first page I love it!!! its worth reading. If anyone wants to read it online go to http://manga.bleachexile.com/immortal-rain.html and start reading it. Join Machika and Rain's adventure!!!

I don't know why....It was one of the first mangas I picked up. It should be really popular.
It probably has the same problem as Zombie Powder.

Zombie Power is by the same author who wrote Bleach. But since Bleach is the popular one of the two, most have never heard of it.
If you want to read it go to onemanga.com.
It's a really good short series.

Hey thanks for the link, by the way. That's awesome! I got so frustrated when volume 8 came out and I couldn't find it anywhere to buy and I wasn't able to find it online.

OMG volume 8 is finally out woooooooooooot...I hate and like that this manga isn't popular I'll start with why I hate that its not. Since its not that popular most people give you this really weird look like WTF are you talking about. The upside is that not many people know about it which makes it somewhat rare and good if that makes sense.

I feel the same way about Immortal Rain. I also felt that way about Ouran Host Club. It wasn't even really know in America except by Japanese-Americans and non-Japanese people(like myself) who give unknown mangas a chance and now UGH! It's everywhere practically, cause the anime got licensed(the dubbing is TERRIBLE!!!!!) and now all these new fans are going mentally obsessive over it. I hate that. It felt like Ouran was my very own private manga and Tamaki was MY perfect manga guy. And now tons of newbies are acting like it's theirs and only theirs.(Does anyone else feel this way? My younger sister says she does. So I'm wondering if we are the only 2...lol) It gets annoying. And sorry about the rant! I needed to get this off my chest! lol.

BUT ANYWAYS, I too am baffled as to how this manga has slipped by unnoticed by most. I found out about it cause my library ordered it and I loved the way the cover looked(I am picky when it comes to manga/anime. If they don't have a type of drawing style I like I usually won't give it a chance. Bad art ruins it for me) And I LOVED IT!!!!!!!! I became quite obsessed! And the first vol. I bought for my very own collection was vol. 4 BECAUSE RAIN AND MACHIKA KISS AND HAVE SUCH A GREAT ROMANTIC MOMENT TOGETHER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love that entire scene!!!!!!

I judged the books by their cover, too! I had just gotten my paycheck, so I just grabbed every book that looked good to me. It was really a fluke. Now it's hard for me to read anything anything else because Immortal Rain is so good!!! When this finally gets popular (which is inevitable) I'm going to be a little sad that it isn't my little secret anymore. But I bet this happened to people with things like Bleach and Naruto as well... I just hope it doesn't get ruined by it's popularity :{
And we'll all say "I liked Immortal Rain BEFORE it was cool!"

Haha aye we will be saying that no never mind saying we'll be SCREAMING it and everyone else will be like no way you never even knew what it was cause they are idiots xD I do love the stroyline its very twisted and romantic at the same time kinda weird but oh well still beats the typical manga anyday...I dun really judge by the cover I judge by if it sounds intresting or not but even some that don't sound or look intresting I'll still give a try, but I know what ya mean by being picky with manga...I hope this series doesn't get ruined like bleach or I'ma have ta start pwning some noobs or make 'em dissappear

At my local Japantown, I always buy over $50 worth of manga at the Kinokuniya bookstore! But I don't go that often. Myabe like once every month or 2. Which sucks! I wish I could go more! It's kinda far from me, so that's why. Yeah, I too hope it doesn't get ruined by popularity! I know we can totally say we knew of Immortal Rain for over *add your amount of years here* years and you just found out about it recently! Most manga do have good art, but some the art I'm just like I can never get used to this, and it takes away from the story. How am I supposed to believe this guy is the "Hotty" of the story when he is ugly looking? Stuff like that.

OOOOOOOOH Another "unkown" manga (well it does have an anime, but I've never seen it talked about in any anime/manga magazines in America, plus I never see anybody talking about it on message boards) is "Dazzle" or in Japanese:"Hatenkou Yuugi". I LOOOOOOOOOVE IT! Another story of a feisty 14 year old(Rahzel) who meets an older guy(Alzeid, he's 24) and they travel together along with this funny guy named Baroqueheat doing random crazy things with each village they come across. The story is so good and funny. And not as much romance as Immortal Rain(but it gets bigger with each book! Though it's little baby steps) but Rahzel and Alzeid care for each other deeply and Alzeid gets jealous whenever Baroqueheat hits on Rahzel. It's really cute to see the romance between those 2 odd ones develop, even though it's quite slow. But I think if you love Immortal Rain, you'll at least like Dazzle!
