|On allowing anonymous groups

Quote from lambchopsil
Because we do not allow any of the links on a group's entry page to point directly to a manga reader site
Now, I'm not trying to be a smart-ass, but what exactly defines a manga reader site? For example, I'm wondering ...

Also, many series by Igarashi Daisuke
If you're allowing dream world and/or non-Japanese spirits:

I don't read too many OEL webcomics, but I really enjoyed minus. I initially found it when I stumbled upon this strip out of context somewhere else... In context, it comes across quite differently. ...

Here's a couple more that fit (except for the completely scanlated aspect), both of which I highly recommend:
Twin Spica - Starts with the protagonist seeking to enter a specific school, continues through her graduation and a bit beyond. While the scanlation w ...

Are you restricting your request to series with some sort of ongoing plot, or are collections of oneshots acceptable? I'm assuming the latter for now... Anyways, some of these may have a few longer chapters thrown in, but they generally fit the topic:

I've never heard this line from publishers. Do you know of any specific examples, from publishers' own mouths?

I don't know the specifics in the case of Shaman King, but it's not all that uncommon for license agreements to place specific limits on the publishing format. In particular, digital and print rights seem to be negotiated separately - for example, Kansai Clu ...

Well, aside from being seinen, Baka & Gogh fits your request perfectly (it even gives you multiple idiots to choose from).
As for shoujo/josei series, I don't know of any perfect fits, but you could try Yakusoku Siren and Udon no Hito... Although, in Yakus ...

A few series that haven't been suggested yet; some of these include rape, though nothing approaching Bradherley no basha's level:

Bumping this thread (and repeating myself from a now-locked thread), as people have periodically been starting new threads with similar topics:

You know what my favorite kind of thread is? The kind that discusses obscure series people love, especially when they're not so popular, or just plain awesome.

Assuming that your vague memories are slightly inaccurate, it could be Apollo’s Song.
At least, it has ancient Greek imagery towards the beginning, lovers separated and reunited across repeated reincarnations and the far future... ...

I'd recommend pretty much anything by IGARASHI Daisuke.
If you count psychedelic as surreal, then you should look into the works of KOIKE Keiichi as well.
Matsumoto Taiyou also tends towards the surreal, and captures a childlike sense of wonder as well ...

I also mentioned to Manick that it I suspect the publishers filter out most of the bad series by not publishing them, so perhaps that's why the series ratings tend to be on the high side.
I'd assume the filtering effect would be on the s ...

Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind fits almost perfectly, although you should read it first to be sure you don't think it's too dark and/or violent. It was also recently re-released in English in a two volume hardcover edition, which seems to have go ...
