Best of Manga Underground Series 2004-2013

August 21, 2013


We have featured some awesome manga series in the last 9 years, but humans are forgettable and I think it’s time that we dig out some memorable series.

What manga series do you still remember?

PS: The wallpaper is from December 19, 2009. It shows only a fraction of the series we have featured. Does anybody still have the original in 1600px resolution?

    By the way, I added a web radio player of my music collection.

    Dunno what to say silv, this site has been a gold mine for good content, to ask us to chose the most memorable, especially after 9 years of existence is a nearly impossible task.

    But if I had to answer, Id go with Monster and Sanctuary, the’re both complete, and different enough one from the other to be worth a repost, dunno how many people haven’t read them yet though.

    And since they might not be reuploaded cause of shear popularity, I’m also Adding the two Emma series, the related Shirley series and the Blame series(though you might just want to link to the Nihei torrent), at least Emma and Blame don’t seam to be as loved now as they were a few years back.

    I’d say Blame like the person before me and Eden. Two amazing mangas I still marval at the sheer amount of detail put into each.


  6. silverado Says:

    I’m creating a list of series from the posts. Feel free to contribute XD


  7. silverado Says:

    So many posts to go through -_-

    Yea someone should really stop making updates so long ಠ_ಠ , incoming post :)

    Eden for me. Kinda hard to answer, since many of the “Collections” -series I was already familiar with, but still madly in love with. =)
    Let’s throw in Homunculus, Berserk and Vinland Saga. Piano no Mori and I Am a Hero. Definitely The Five Star Stories too, though I’m still not finished reading that.


  10. silverado Says:

    hehe, I love your enthusiasm. But please slow down a bit. Readers want to take the time to actually read the manga that you recommend.

    Blame, Leviathan, Eden – its an endless world (Although Blame and Leviathan I got from Omanga, a very seinen-centric group). Eden was from here.

    Monster and the Astroboy remake from the same mangaka. He has a very unique story telling talent but his art style has a several limitation where so many characters look alike (esp. if you read 2 series nearly at the same time).

    Emma is okayish I guess. Its a good read if you only read it once.

    Yal, do you happen to have the wallpaper? XD
    I lost a lot of stuff during a tornado (called “ubuntu installation”).


  14. Karlolol Says:

    I really liked Shin Angyo Onshi and C.A.T. Confidential Assassination Troop.
