There are countless popular manga at the moment, be it Bleach, One Piece, Naruto, Detective Conan, Death Note, Dragon Ball. Etc. However, there are a number of manga that barely many people don't talk about or receive the praise it should deserve. In this thread, give a series or a list of series that isn't often discussed about and explain why you think it's good. To start of.
Franken Fran - I'm not sure, but I haven't seen many people discuss about this series. It's a gruesome and graphic manga about a young Frankenstein's monster doctor named Fran. She is given a number of medical cases, in which she is supposed to fix and work on. Most of her cases involve various sides of the human psyche and most of them end in ironic and disturbing manners. Some are so horrific that I'm not surprised to why this hasn't been offered an anime, or even just an OVA. Regardless of the gruesome nature and its dark sense of humor, it does give intriguing medical insight and makes you curious to how exactly the cases would end, considering Fran is more than willing to do ANYTHING to preserve life, even if it include making them suffer.
Akumetsu - Another graphic manga. However, not as gruesome as Franken Fran. It deals with political tones and most of its villains do look similar to Japanese politicians. The main character, Shou, goes out killing corrupt businessmen, political and social figures, while explaining their flaws. Considering that the villains do look nearly like their counterparts, it may or probably has caused some controversy. However, its political insights are intriguing. Its villains are simply greedy, however, they are seen in shown in such a disgustingly evil manner that you can't help, but want them to die.
These are two among the many that I don't see often discussed. Do you have a manga that you enjoy, but are overshadowed by the bigger names? Post here and let them shine.
