I'm just gonna quote one of my own posts from another thread.

Criminale! A survival-savvy MC that's prone to being attacked by Criminals finds his skills put to the test when he's transferred into a class full of them. The overall plot is fairly generic and predictable, but the characters and their interactions are hilarious and entertaining enough to make up for it.


Shingetsutan Tsukihime and it's spinoffs. I wouldn't call it unknown per say, but it certainly gets less attention then it's younger sibling Fate. Some of you may know of it as the OTHER group of characters depicted in Carnival Phantasm. Written by Nasu Kinko, the same guy who wrote Fate/Stay Night. A dark urban fantasy with vampires, magi, zombies, and an MC that just might be more of a monster then the rest of them combined. Be warned: fairly explicit depictions of gore and sex.


Mahou Tsukai No Yome, a troubled girl with great affinity for the fey folk is bought by a less-then-human magus to be his apprentice, and possibly his wife? A surprisingly good mix of shonen and shoujo characteristics, so it can be enjoyed by fans of both demographics. The writer seems to have done their homework, because there's lots of references to Shakespearean-esque European folklore, particularly the fae. I think it's getting an OVA soon, so it probably won't remain "unknown" for much longer.


Yuusha Gojo Kumiai Kouryygata Keijiban, a hilarious take on heroic archetypes prevailent in popular fiction. It takes place at an interdimensional forum where individuals that have been designated "heroes" can converse with each other chatroom-style to rant, give advice, and troll each other. In short, it's 4chan for main characters.


Watari-kun no xx ga houkai suzen, a fairly amusing harem-ish romcom so far, but foreshadowing indicates it may be taking a darker turn at some point. Unlike most manga of this type, where the focus is the appeal of the heroines and general fanservice depicting them, the writer seems to be using their various interactions as build up to something bigger. Of course, I could be totally wrong.


I can also recommend some mainstream stuff.

- One Piece, if you like wacky adventure that never seems to end.

- Rouni Kenshin, a war-weary swordsman in Meiji-era Japan takes up a blunt sword to defend the new era.

- Tokyo Ghoul is a dark gristly tale with suspenseful cliffhangers galore, and everyone has a good reason to do bad things.

- Boku Dake Ga Inai Machi/Erased, hard to explain this one without spoiling important things, but it's a tale of second chances and murder.

- Until Death Do Us Part. A blind swordsmen fights crime with high-tech gear and a young girl with precognition. A solid action series with scifi elements, international intrigue, and awesome fight scenes. Why hasn't this been made into an anime yet?

Grand Blue. Amazingly funny.

A new life begins for Kitahara Iori as he begins his college career near the ocean in Izu city, full of excitement for his new life. He will be moving into his Uncle's diving store "Grand Blue." There he finds the beautiful ocean, beautiful women, and men that love diving and alcohol. Will Iori be able to live his dream college life?

I'm thinking for Until Death Do Us Part, they are waiting for it to completely in. Then maybe make it into an anime.

If MAL is accurate, the final chapter was published back in November, it just hasn't been translated yet.

Fruits Basket - The story is about a recently orphaned girl named Tohru Honda, who, after a lot of different circumstances, ends up being taken in by the Sohma family. While she is staying with them, she learns that the Sohma family has a curse that turns them into the 12 animals of the Chinese Zodiac--plus the cat. As Tohru continues to find out more about the Sohma family and the curse, she realizes that it's not just their house that needs cleaning, but also their hearts. I really can't tell you much more without ruining some of the emotional revelations of the series, but just know that it's a heart-warming, heart-melting, and heart-breaking series that has great characters and will make you want to laugh and cry.

ReLives is a gaming manga where players control avatars with certain skills to defeat other players. The catch is that if a player loses then they become an avatar for other players to control. Avatars have to be used otherwise they're 'deleted'.

Real Account is another gaming manga where a seemingly random group of people part of a certain social media platform are drawn into a series of deadly games. What's interesting about this manga is that several of the games are based on how the participant's social media follows. If the player dies, then their followers die. The manga explores the nature of relationships on social media and the internet.

Based on those, I'd suggest Dragon Ball, Ushio & Tora, My Hero Academia, and Kimagure Orange Road.

Yea it correct. So I'm not too sure if it is. I have not read all of it yet, but just where it is at now. I like it a lot. It should get a anime. It deserves it.

Berserk, Nana, and Uzumaki. All very different from one another, but you can't go wrong with any one of them.
