There's a lot of manga out there but a majority of titles are hidden behind the popularity of series such as Naruto and Bleach. I'm interested to find out what manga titles out there people would recommend but not many people have read. To be objective about this, just check the number of people have a certain title on their reading list or complete list at the time of the post. If it's under 200 and you recommend it, just list it here.

To start off with a few recommendations:
Solanin
Jiraishin
Planetes --> Don't understand why considering it has a popular anime series
Mushishi --> Same as Planetes

Yeah, Solanin is really awesome, as are all the rest of Inio Asano's works.

Here are a few:
Blood Alone - Vampire,Supernatural,Slice of Life, Romance
Historie - Seinen, Historical
Dogs - Seinen, Action (Superb art/style)
Dogs Bullets & Carnage - Seinen, Action
Ga-Rei - Shounen, Action
Usagi Drop - Josei, Adult caring for child
Angel Densetsu - Comedy (Really funny)
Bitter Virgin - Romance, Seinen, Josei
Chocolat - Comedy, Romance, Seinen
Yotsubato! - Comedy, Slice of Life (One of the funniest ever)
Hourou Musuko - Seinen, Slice of Life
Homunculus - Seinen, Action, Mature
Ciguatera - Seinen, Comedy, Mature
My Balls - Comedy, Mature

Most, of the stuff the others have recommended is also pretty good. Eg. Ai-Ren

I'm sure there are many more. eyes

Oh Yeah, I forgot to mention that I didn't check to see if the stuff I recommended above has less than 200 votes. I'm sure they're not 'mainstream', that's all.

Is it really that good? i got to like volume 2 and thought it was really dry and dull, does it get better as it gets going?

I am very picky in reading mangas so it turns out pretty main stream but some rare ones are:-

- Perfect Twin= surprisingly good art for a shounen, its a sci-fi but was discontinued..

-Kurosagi = brainy mangas always win out, here we have an unusual genre, we r in the business world...

- Selected Pandemonium = so I have a weak spot for supernatural/paranormal but the low key of this manga is so drawing, its almost as good as Mushishi

..........though this might be famous but I am so surprised how less hyped ES is compared to MARS which is good but the former is good enough to become an anime...
