Hey! I've been looking for shounen anime, but I always seem to get the same recommendations. (FMAB, One Piece, Hero Academia, etc.) Are there any good shounen worth watching that are a little less mainstream? Suggestions would be welcome.

And maybe, if you're a glutton for punishment /world-trigger

All are more or less worth watching IMO. Even though, any recommendation like that is pretty subjective...but you should know within an episode or at most two whether you'll like any of them.

Ya got a MAL or something like that? It makes this kind of thing easier. And keep in mind what finds "mainstream" and what finds obscure is really subjective line.

Blue Exorcist

Yu Yu Hakusho

Hajime no Ippo

@A_RandomGuy I think of dropping a show more as suspending it indefinitely. I feel like I could get more out of Hero Academia at a later point in my life, and Hunter x Hunter got too gritty for me.
