Recommend some manga but...

...it can't be the first five (or so) titles you would normally recommend.

Basically, just recommend something you normally don't push when asked this question but is still worth reading in your opinion.

Yeah, it's a weird question. Just trying to weasel out what lil life is left in this manga forum and I'm sure a funky question as this one wouldn't have been asked before.

(probably)

I'll start with:

By Hero
This is a simple one-shot. The story isn't anything grand but the use of a different perspective provided a nice touch and worth the quick read.

Eien no With
This is just one volume. It's a great short story and for just one volume, contained good depth. The drama was slightly forced but overall, it was a great read. It did well to pull at the ol' heart strings.

I've heard City Hunter is quite good.
