Reiraku
Inio Asano (author of Reiraku) admittedly read Yoshiharu Tsuge's "Worthless Man", a classic of Gekiga. Art about the trade of art, both of these manga are pessimistic insights into the results of following one's most intimate dreams. Asano's "Downfall" might make you frown with disgust at its unrepentant honesty and selfishness; Tsuge's "Useless Man" might pull out the most compassionate sighs when it presents to you its crushing apathetic universe.

Ousama Game
A test of survival that includes many deaths and a LOT of gory scenes. Albeit Ousama Game starting as a game and Innocent W as a hunt, they both end up having to fight for a chance to live and even friends turn on their own friends. Both works are not realistic at all when it comes to human relationships or just character writing, but offer that kind of senseless violence and edgy fanservice which serve fine if you are in that mood. Innocent W is probably the worse one of the two as things progress too fast and almost every character is crazier than the other, but if it is creative violence you're looking for with some mystery plot, both serve that purpose.

Orange
Manga: Ano Natsu.
...then you might like
Ano Natsu.
Time travel! Of sorts. Present, past and future are 3 realities that get tangled in both these works involving high school friends. In Orange this happens through future letters, while in Ano Natsu they wake up during their high school days and as it happens, it comes down to mostly one person. Not only that, but both groups of friends have their secrets and misunderstandings that they try to fix, yet the consequences of their actions are heavy on their mind. The explanation of time tampering is different, yet equally illogical in the sense that this heavily relies in random powers of the universe, however their true difference is the ending goal. While Orange is more subdued and contains relatable drama, Ano Natsu takes it a notch higher and goes a bit out control with the twists and the characters' behavior, yet there is drama as well, even if just a bit less effective.

Dungeon Meshi is set in a dungeon where a party of adventurers tries to rescue the protagonists sister that got eaten by a red dragon. On their journey they hunt monsters and plants in order to cook meals. Kumika no Mikaku is set in an office with adult human and aliens. The protagonist Kumika is an alien that got an officejob on earth and by chance tastes human food. Fascinated by the new tastes, she goes on and explores all kinds of food during free time by herself or with her colleagues during work. This one also has a satisfying romance subplot for the main character.

Written by the same mangaka, both these manga are pretty misleading. On the surface, you might think that they're stereotypical BLs, but that's not the case. The uke is a strong and confident young boy (despite his shota appearance), while seme is a complete goofball who's totally besotted with that cute little boy! Both share healthy relationships with each other.

You don't even need to know much about baseball to cheer for the characters in both series since the matches are quite interesting. However, Oofuri focuses more on the sport itself while Yugami is more slice of life oriented.

After awhile iseki gets boring and reverse harems also tend to get boring after the industry reuses the same ideas and the most one dimensional, pure- hearted, damsel in distress, cutesy, plain girl. Like for realizes, that’s one of my biggest struggles when reading shoujo mangas is the female protagonist. Literally why I like these two manga series so much is cause they not only do something very interesting with the “a normal (or otaku) girl suddenly goes into a otome game/ fantasy world” but they make the female characters really unique and fun to read over the typical shoujo romance whatever female protagonist. They are quite similar but different in the same way: I Reincarnated into an Otome Game as a Villainess With Only Destruction Flags Is about a girl who has died and became the villain to a otome. She has a very charming personality and I’m so happy that she isn’t super dense and dumb. She’s able to create strong relationships with the characters and she has a very ingesting, outgoing personality and it helps that she has played this game once before so she knows what to say to the characters. We don’t go through the “Why didn’t you say this?” Or “ you could’ve done that” with this character which makes it extremely refreshing and satisfying to read and not only that she is really independent and is able to work hard by herself. Plus Alpha no Tachiichi is about the protagonist And her classmate going into into another fantasy universe which happens to have a reverse harem in it but the problem is that she is not the protagonist and her classmate is. Her classmate is the protagonist type, cute, pure hearted and all of that while Satoki is not really any of those. Normally when protagonist say they aren’t attractive they are reasonably attractive but in this case Satoki is plain but she’s beautiful in her own way. She is actually the true protagonist and possesses these powers but her friend thinks she possesses when she actually is mistaken. Honestly is really refreshing watching the “protagonist” from the side lines with Satoki and not only that Satoki as a character was interesting as well and was not the usual good willed protagonist. The main point I’m getting at is that boy of this series puts an interesting twist on the ieski reverse harem genre and have really good refreshing characters.

The person who recommended this manga before me, did a solid job. Both manga feature a seme with a surprisingly dark past, who is unable to love/trust people. However, he finds comfort in the presence of our uke (who btw isn't a useless piece of doormat), and is able to love again. Both manga cover semi-dark topics, so be careful.
