    Default Underappreciated Stop Tazmo gems

    A slightly different reccomendation thread: a place to pimp titles available here that aren't well known and rarely mentioned, but you think deserve more love.

    I'll start with Hyakkiyakou Shou aka Selected Pandemonium. It's another modern Japanese folklore series, this time featuring a high school student, but it's the furthest thing from a shounen action series -- the closest description I can think of is a psychological horror anthology series (even though there's supernatural creatures right and left). Very low gore, very creepy, often amusing.

    ETA: I should probably mention it is, in fact, a josei series.

    Joe-Bob-Random says "Check it out."

    Heh. I'd have quite a list to add to this, but I long-ago turned off all the series showing up for me. (I don't download from here).

    Eternal Sabbath

    Ryousuke Akiba calls himself ES, a code name taken from a mysterious scientific experiment. Ryousuke will live to be at least two centuries old and possesses strange mental powers: He can enter people's minds, discover their darkest secrets, even rearrange their memories so that complete strangers will treat him like family. Ryousuke acts not out of malice but for survival-wandering Tokyo for reasons known only to him. No one recognizes him for what he is . . . until Dr. Mine Kujyou, a determined researcher, meets someone who challenges everything she knows about science- ES, possessor of the Eternal Sabbath gene.

    Dragon Head

    In the horror of witnessing so many classmates perish before his eyes in a violent train wreck, Teru discovers two survivors in the tunnel: Ako and Nobuo. But salvation from this bloody carnage is far from their grasp. As they try to dig out from the wreck in order to come up with a plan to stay alive, the lack of light and food, combined with the stench of death and decay, will lead one member of the group down a dark and demented path. And with sudden, violent earthquakes shaking the tunnel, escaping to the outside world may lead them to an even greater danger...

    Kurosagi - swindler swindles swindlers. good drawings, mind gaems, awesome main character.

    -1 for Dragon Head. it started off interesting, but i felt that it's drawn out and not going anywhere in particular. that entire arc after they escaped from the subway - that was a major momentum killer (ie boring).

    Katteni Kaizo - Absurd comedy by the mangaka of Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, although this one is older. Is about a genious kid who falls down from a... PLayground-thing and becomes completely nuts resulting a few years later in that he is convices himself that he is an android and has to battle aliens. Not much is scanlated, but what exists is definitely worth the read.
