"Hidden Gems of Manga"


Gakuen Sousei Nekoten!

More cat manga! This time from Yen Press! Cat Paradise is Yuji Iwahara's third work published in English after Chikyu Misaki (CMX) and King of Thorn (Tokyopop)

Cat Paradise begins with Yumi enrolling in a special academy, one where you can keep a cat at your dorm! As she settles into school, she quickly discovers that the student council has a secret: they fight demons with the help of their cats and super powers bestowed upon them by an ancient princess and her cat. And now Yumi and her cat, Kansuke, are the latest to receive special powers!

Cat Paradise is an action-adventure title involving cats and super powers and fighting demons! Cat demons! Using super powered cats that can talk to their special human! Yuji Iwahara has a unique style that has lots of heavy lines, but doesn't seem to use any screentones. His works are always a visual treat to read and his creative stories are just as much fun to experience. Cat lovers and action fans need look no further for a great short title to add to their collections, as 5 volumes seems just the right length for it. (FallnKnightFakir)

@leaveit2me: I'm glad to hear someone else knows about Sketchbook and enjoyed it too!

I picked up Sketchbook, thoroughly enjoyed it and later on learned there was an anime. Kinda hard to find though. It started off as average but after watching the entire series, I felt glad I stuck with it, watching Sora and co. observe the natural world around them.
Later on it led me to Aria(made by the same studio), yet another peaceful slice of life anime.

@xxxATiON: I saw the Sketchbook anime and it was actually pretty good as far as slice-of-life anime. I've started the manga and it's pretty peaceful.
As for 4-koma, I enjoyed Azumangah Daioh.

@crazy it's definitely a Yumi Tamura characters. But for which series I don't know. Seems like Chicago. Although you should check out her Basara and 7 Seeds both are excellent and amazing.

Thanks for admitting me. :)
My favorite 4 panel manga, that I consider a hidden gem, is Sketchbook by Totan Kobako. It's a peaceful slice of life manga and I love the quirky little observations the characters make about life, art, and cats, to name a few.

What manga is at the upper right corner?

For me, I've mostly been rereading Yotsuba to bring some semblance of happiness back into my life. Besides that, I recently finished Ore to Akuma no Blues which was pretty cool, but ended abruptly, Hanako to Guuwa no Tera which was okay and Tobaku Datenroku Kaiji which was okay.
