    -Sliqq- Aeterno

    Have you tried Chobits?

    It's pretty short, but it's an interesting read - if you like robots...

    Maybe a bit too much.

    YAY!! Someone else knows Biomega here!!


    Anyway, If I had to recommend any manga, I'd have to say Tokyo Ghoul, even over the anime... The Brushed art is so AWESOME

    The art is gorgeous, the storytelling is cinematic in its views and world building. Apart from the small decline in detailed artwork in the last couple of books I think it's a top-notch sixpiece manga.

    Tokyo Ghoul manga especially over the anime. Root A was just. what.

    The scanlations are a bit difficult to follow though because they are not as clean of scans as the actual releases.

    There's where I win. I've bought the first 2 volumes... I've made sure to keep them safe too

    Luku_Zuku The Local Pyromaniac Necromancer

    Oh crap, I just noticed you said obscure XD

    If I had to choose one of those maybe nabari no ou for the shone side and I'd have to back Biomega for the seinen side...

    Guyver. I've read about 30 chapters and it's pretty good. The manga's been going on since 1985, so I am in no hurry to catch up. You'll like it if you enjoy a lot of action, Science Fiction, old school series, and Shounen.

    I made the mistake of buying the first book.
    The art is very amateur, proportions vary frame to frame and it's about as grimdark as you can get, it's pretty funny in a way it's not meant to be. Cringey even.
    Dialoque didn't really work either.
    Wouldn't recommend it
     
  16. Ive read that already im I am on tokyo ghoul re

    Umm, maybe xxxholic? It's a good read, especially delving into a bit of mythology and psychology. All in all, a good, long series. It also has an anime if you want to watch it.

    Obscure manga hmm...

    Telepathic Wanderers: Tragic story about a group of psychic individuals and their search for others who understand them and a place to hide away from a government trying to eradicate them.

    Biomeat: Resident Evil~esque manga that follows a group of kids as they struggle to survive in a world where science has created a "biomeat" substance that eats anything, taking care of the world's garbage problem, and multiplies, ending world hunger. Problem is the "biomeat" isn't easily controlled and it's always hungry.

    Suicide Island: Imagine a world where if you attempted suicide and failed, instead of being accepted back into society, you were sent to a remote island seperated from civilization. This story follows a group of people on this island who are struggling to redeem themselves and survive on this island after they were removed from a world that no longer acknowledged their existence. Their obstacles are the island itself, other people, and their weak wills to live.

    I love non-mainstream manga and anime. I know plenty more, but typing all this on a cell phone is a pain (@_@) I can list more later if you're interested. (^_^)
