Haha I don't think anyone's calling anyone a hipster seriously, maybe as a joke :P

Hmmm Arago, missed that one...

I have a true hate  for anyone who claims to be a "hipster". So i rather not be associated with such a word.

Arago is what a typical shonen looks like, but i guess it feels like a classic. Something that doesn't look like its trying too hard to be too unique but at the same time, doesn't look like its having a hard time staying original.

Hehehe fair doos. I call my brother a hipster and he hates it, but then he does walk around with a 'man purse' from and he has just bought himself "steampunk" sunglasses... so I think he deserves it :P its not a bad word or a serious lable though, but I'll keep in mind you don't like it :)

I checked it out, Arago seems pretty fun, are they still releasing new chapters?

Ive noticed also that lots of series thats have been completed are dropping off of the top lists on websites (top 30s and even top 50s). Mangas like Shaman King, KHR, and even deadman wonderland are all dropping down through the ranks... I dont think they can be classed as underrated, but they will end up grabbing the attention of fewer and fewer new readers.

i made a lengthy opinion on why i hate hipsters.

Arago i believe is complete.  Arago is different in the sense that people dont know about it still. Although many people haven't read series like Shaman King and KHR, they've heard of them (probably nor KHR in acronym form though)

I just couldn't be bothered to type it out on my phone... Sorry.

I know most people have at least heard of them, but I'm just thinking that in the future people are going to have to delve deeper and deeper before they can unearth them, which to me is weird because they were the ones that I just picked up and read because they were there on the front pages! I guess that's what's destined for most mangas though...

You are right though, because these are series that were once popular and are dropping off, rather than series that never really got into the spotlight despite being really good.

Couple that are not popular "yet" but i have a feeling they do have the potential to get more mainstream following

Re:monster: A lot like the webtoon "the Gamer" but fantasy based (the MC is a weak goblin that can build his stats by eating his prey) this one reminds me of Tokyo ghoul a bit, and atm the translated pages in the manga dont really show how mature this manga is going to get according to the light novel translations out so far...so just a warning at the moment its shounen/seinen

Red Storm: turning out to be a classic Master disciple shounen, adventure type, only about 16 chapters out so far and its holding my attention

Dungeon ni Deai o Motomeru no wa Machigatte Iru Darou ka: Another shounen one with stat building, a mix between Magi, fairytale and the gamer, its harem and another one thats pretty early in... maybe around 15 chapters

Gunka no Baltzar: this is seinen i think... doesnt have a constant flow of translations but deserves more fans than it has, similar to Kingdom maybe? in terms of military strategy at least, though its based around the 18th century in Europe i think, guns are just starting to get more advanced  around about 20 chapters so far

Jisatsutou: see some of you like "eden no ori" this is similar well in terms of the Survivalist type them, though much more psychological and has a little more realism, especially in terms of human behavior, from the same author of destroy and revolution or the fighting manga Holyland, this is ongoing at around 90 chapters ...

well these ones are the ones i hope to see get updated lately, rather than just the ones i know will be updated... could use more fans

Grave digging as usual. Don't mind me. :sure:

I've become somewhat more of manwha guy over the years, and three of my favorites that I don't think that are very well known are Tower of God, God of High School and Wake up Deadman. Tower of god has a deep and compelling story that just mind f*cks you every step of the way. God of high school is a martial arts story with superb action and an interesting cast of main characters. And Wake up Deadman is a adventure story about zombies where the twist is that they're not mindless creatures who feed on human flesh, but undead beings who still hold onto their sense of humanness, possessing thoughts, emotions and dreams that drive them to survive in a world where zombies are the victims of cruel human oppression.   
Messatsu...

Well, I've never seen anyone else talk about Venus Versus Virus, and I used to have the complete set of that in omnibus until I let a friend borrow some and then never got them back. I have lost so much manga that way (including nine volumes of Deathnote, three of Black Butler, and one of Rosario+Vampire). Gotta love me my subtly hinted shoujo ai, though. One of these days if I ever have money I'll re-buy the two omnibus volumes I'm missing just so my collection can be complete again.

Wait people don't know Monster?? Noooooo. That manga was such a thrill ride to go through. Naoki Urasawa's works are generally great like that.

My favorite lesser known manga are Tenkuu Shinpan, Katekyou Hitman Reborn(tho it might've been more well known before idk), and Tensei *censored*ara Slime Datta Ken. :3

I think I'll check out some of the other ones mentioned in this topic tho
