2017 is here and with it comes many new manga releases for the year. With so many new manga released, we’re pretty sure it’s gonna be a bit of a pain to figure out which ones you wanna read. Not to worry though as we have got you covered.
For 2017, we’ve picked a good mix of totally brand new manga being released in 2017 as well as a few that were released just not too long ago in 2016. And while the newer ones in 2017 have yet to reach a good amount of chapters to really reach the “safe” zone of not being cancelled, we’re pretty sure our picks would at least stand the test of the ever-changing taste of manga readers in Japan and would last a pretty good while.
So without further adieu, let’s check out the top 10 manga of 2017 that you have to read (in no particular order)!
Arifureta Shokugyou de Sekai Saikyou (From Common Job Class to the Strongest in the World)
Another World-genre manga have been coming out a dime a dozen and many have settled into their own tropes. Most of the time, the main character gets some sort of boosted stats and is rather heroic in nature, but what happens when the main character starts of just average or actually, even worst than average?
That’s what Arifureta Shokugyou de Sekai Saikyou explores, and as you’ll see from the translation, the main character won’t just remain plain average for long. Based of the light-novel of the same name, the premise sees main character Nagumo Hajime and his classmates being transported to an “Another World” where fantasy tropes are a reality.
While his classmates in one way or another are blessed with astounding stats and skills, Hajime himself, like his life in the real world, is average with what seems to be the pathetic skills of a “Synergist”.
However, that skill set might just be what he needs to survive after he gets trapped in a dungeon after an unexpected incident. How will he survive dungeon and is his “Synergist” skill really just mediocre?
If you love reading about how the main characters suppress all odds and make do with what seems to be a low-level skill, you’ll love reading this. After all, everyone loves and an underdog.
