Obscure Manga

Postby Hermit » Sat Dec 08, 2012 9:22 am

We all know the big name titles out there; Naruto, Bleach, One Piece, possibly Soul Eater. Perhaps we may even know less known ones such as Detective Conan and dot.hack.

What I'm looking for are those even lesser known titles that you've read or heard about.

Post them here.

Aqua Knight.

It's a fun story from the guy who brought you Battle Angel Alita: Yukito KISHIRO.

I have a few of the singular issues and all 3 trade paperbacks. But I have never seem them since I got them, so I can safely say it's an obscure one, as no one else I've talked to has even heard of the series, let alone seen it. It's also where I originally got my name, from the main character in this series.

Puella Magi Kazumi Magica: The Innocent Malice.

A Spin-off of the Puella Magi Madoka Magica storylines, that pretty much involves Magical girls dealing with very bad situations.

Follows through with a lot of the major themes discussed with the Dresden Files involving Magic all the better than even the DF-verse's main storylines could, but I'll save the in-depth discussions for another matter.

At any rate, much can be talked about when it comes to that spin-off Manga in particular. :geek:

Detective Conan is listed as the 7th most read manga on Manga Eden. It isn't an obscure manga.

BlazBlue: Remix Heart might qualify, given that it fits somewhere in the BlazBlue canon before the events of Calamity Trigger happened, but I'm not sure how many read the thing, actually.

It actually feels pretty...expressive, to say the least. :oops:

Sword Art Online.
At least, I think it's obscure... sure seems like it,

Its a Light Novel series.

The BlazBlue Spin-off manga may also qualify if I'm not mistaken, such as Remix Heart.(Although you'd think it'd be less bad of an issue compared to those
listed above by now, apparently not!)
