It is like required reading if you are into manga. It is not over rated at all, in fact it is not on many lists either because it is a give in or the person does not want to put it there because they don't want to be main stream. That is my two cents on that.
Most overrated manga is Bleach. Before every bleach fan starts getting angry at me like I get angry at those who bash Naruto, please know that I am a fan of Bleach. However, the story, in my humble opinion, jumps around way too much towards the end. The fact that it is not linear may intrigue others, but it confuses the hell out of me sometimes, especially when only one chapter comes out per week and I have to remember something that happened a month and a half ago. Sorry, that is my objective opinion.
Most underrated manga is quite easy, there are a few. Hajime no Ippo is one, over 900 chapters and still going strong but no one ever mentions it. Eyeshield 21, another good one, but I think it is underrated mainly because it has been completed and is now off shonen, not a real reason to be underrated but I still say that it is. I could put fairy tail in here as well, but it is fairly new and therefore does not meet my requirements of being underrated. Even though there are 200 chapters out now, I remember just being lucky to come across it. History's strongest disciple has been picking up speed in rankings, but it still is not where I believe it should be. In my opinion it should be in the top 10 of most people.
One Piece, is my favorite manga, on par with naruto. I know I am a shonen fiend. The one problem with One Piece, and I can say objectively as a bias fan, you either love it or you hate it, there seems to be no middle ground with this, but it should be given a shot by most people.
That is my opinion, let me know what you think.
I agree with alot of this. I started Bleach before Naruto and am caught up and all..but sometimes..it just...turns me off. v.v Naruto never seems to. Fairy Tail either...though another one I think is underrated is Ai Kora. (Love and College) That series...although it's ecchi and completed, it doesn't seem like many people read it. It made me laugh so hard..and it wasn't just about "dirty comedy". It was about the main character growing up.
You shounen fiend! xD I love Kenichi, but I haven't gotten to the manga...I've only seen the anime. It's on my list of stuff to read. *is trying to finish Death Note, no matter how high the temptation is to start another* Tis my problem. I'm a serial reader. :D
I kinda like One Piece. I'm on middle ground. SO YOU FOUND SOMEONE! I don't think it's totally awesome...or totally not worth reading. It's ok. ;D
