Quote from kichiX
Kind of assumed that what you were looking for was a secretly powerful protagonist. (If this is so, then there's a tag for it and multiple threads looking for similar things ^^)Kiss woodMononoke

fits but it's shoujoRed River
people continually underestimate the main cha ...
You see, the problem is that i had read them all in the tag, Kyou Kara Ore wa was an excellent example on this, but it's not what i'm looking for, in Kyo Kara ore wa we know how strong Mitsuhashi and Ito are but they don't so it always end up on people looking down on then till they know they are "the Strongest pair in Chiba" or "Mitsuhashi the blond"
I want a one time Victory that leave people with their eyes wide open and the mouth hanging, and that the reader is not expecting (or mostly yes but we are not given any hints)
The only one in the list i had't read is Skip Beat (even tough i know it well enough) since it's too long and it seems like it changed focus greatly over the years.
Also i'm kind of a Misogynist bastard so i hate strong girls, i do read shojo, but i don't enjoy it as much.
Still i was hoping for manga that is missing the label mostly due to the "secretly strong" part been only at one point or with a character that ain't even the main character or due to the character not been "strong" but actually good at something (as in a Sport manga), a good example in that would be Akagi that i found out only due to the fact of been of the same author as Kaiji.
edit: Oh, i hadn't read Shibariya Komachi either and it seems mighty interesting, probably i didn't pay it attention due to the fact that is completed but not totally scanlated, once it's completely in English i will read it, Thank you very much.
