ITT: Underrated shounen that were really great
my friend gifted me the first 3 volumes 2 years ago and I still haven't touched them
I remember loving this on Locomotion years ago. Is it actually good?
Zatch Bell and Law of Ueki are the most underrated shounens of all time
Looks like fairy tailed force fucked hoshi no samidare and the outcome child was a really poorly drawn in colored pencils. Also why is Kittan there with a katana?
but it was shit
Another vote for Gash/Zatch.
The shame about Law of Ueki is that, even for a shounen battle manga/anime it's REALLY fucking childish. Like, it's got a cool power system and fights that require learning weaknesses/strengths and how powers work like, say, JoJo, but most of the abilities are something fifth graders would think up. And while it had some dark implications, the actual execution was really goofy and immature. It is one of the few shounen battles where the MC doesn't really give a fuck most of the time, although the end was depressing.
Also, one of the few times the main female is still useless but not annoying. That gag with the glasses power is still fucking hilarious
