- Hokuto no Ken. pretty much the one that set the troupe of overpowered MC (he suffers some very few defeats, but he usually gets back to the guys right away). Souten no Ken should fit the topic in question even better than this one.
- Vagabond. I haven't c ...

- Kimagure Orange Road
- Slam Dunk
- Angel Densetsu (kinda)
- B-Reaction (kinda. Guy is not officially a delinquent, but girl is a teacher, so that's plus points)
- School Rumble (though the romance aspect is so incredibly weak)
- Kyou Kara Ore wa could fit a ...
|Seinen romance/slice of life/other?
(9 posts, 2610 views) Posted: 1205d 18h, 55m ago by Black Hole in I'm Looking For...
I love a lot those "calm romances" on slice of life "simple day to day" stories, so I have read zillions of them... The thing is that most of my recommendations now are "kinda pushing it" and aren't that calm and focused, bu ...

- Yuhii Romance is a single volume story focused entirely on the broncon side.
- Brocon is actually a work safe tankoubon by Itou Ei
- Canvas 2 should fit (though they are cousins).
There are some more known stories like Yosuga no Sora, but those take a... ehm, m ...

- Kaiji, kinda shows a dirty side to humanity, but not in a good sense.
- Family Compo : pretty much everyone is a travesty and has a wonderful life that you shouldn't despise.
- Change H, several one shot stories in the line of Hourou Musuko, but some stories ki ...

Telepathic Wanderers. A mind reader jukujo starts realizing that there are more people like her in the world.
Mai the Psychic girl, if you don't care old works.
BAO, also pretty old work. Jojo's Bizzarre adventure's also kinda fits theme.
|Ghost-Human romance manga?
(27 posts, 5455 views) Posted: 1213d 7h, 27m ago by Black Hole in I'm Looking For...
I really like "Hisoka's return" but it's a little bit more complicated that ghost x human.

You have to think that the concept of tolerance at the time was really different from what it is today; thus in the same way as "Stop!! Hibari Kun" most dilemmas typical for these types of stories are present but are completely watered down to their min ...
|Pretending that everything is okay (but it's not)

Hmmm.... It's kinda hard for me to contribute to this, but let's give it a try.
Orange Chocolate Main characters get cursed at the start of the story, however they try to resume their lives as if nothing wrong really happens. I love the writing style of this one ...

Rin didn't really saw Daikichi as a caretaker or a guardian, she simply saw him on someone she can really rely upon when it counts. Fiction wise, it's pretty common for girls to fall for guys that take care of them with such honesty.
Honestly there it w ...

Enchanter : dude discovers hidden power, realizes that dark forces are targeting his childhood love who is a teacher at his school, so he has to juggle between trying to conquer his teacher, reject a female devil that is after his body (not in the good sense) and de ...
|Manga with detailed background art
(23 posts, 2517 views) Posted: 1374d 6h, 29m ago by Black Hole in I'm Looking For...
Natsu no Zenjitsu
Tasogare Otome x Amnesia (I strongly suggest to stick to the tankoubons since they are much better on detail, too bad that there is no scanlation for the tankoubon version).
.... The problem with my suggestions are that they don' ...

I can only think of Kara no Kyoukai (we could even argue that it's designed completely around the re-visit experience). The problem is that the manga is too young in the storyline, while the movies and novels practically finished. ...

Romance is not the first thing that I look at when I'm thinking about genres to read, but if I do stumble on romance to me is 300% the fun when both the male and the female are loyal to eachother

Strain (from Buronson)
Mai the psychic girl
(these are all pretty much in the same vein)
Doesn't Crying Freeman also fits?

^^ I really wouldn't advise Aki Sora at all. It has more sex than a hentai and less plot that a hentai (and this is judging from the previous incestuous hentai work from the same author).
Densen complex has a couple of siblings themed stories, buy they are prett ...

The first chapter was published as a preview within another magazine (Faust I think that it was), remember, "1st chapter", not "first novel".
The novels are supposed to be published separately, but after that first chapter preview nothing has ...
|A good non-tragedy manga that made you cry

One of my friends recommended this as "the first manga that had my crying by volume 1".

The romance undertones aren't that strong, but this is super good. ...

Spoiler (highlight to view)
He dies. People don't get the ending because is more or less abstract, but he is seeing her future with children as his vital signs are fading. And the last panel of the manga shows how his heart readings have stopped. ...

I would've been happier if the mangaka gave a more definite ending but maybe their embrace means both Iku and Yori wants to start where they left off
Well, it pretty certain that they end up together, I got interested and re-read that part, and while th ...
(10 posts, 4013 views) Posted: 2168d 21h, 48m ago by Black Hole in Boku wa Imouto ni Koi wo Suru - Secret Sweethearts
But what I want to know most is during that time did Iku and Yori go out another guy or girl?
I think that they didn't (they don't go in deep in this). Iku was working for Yano, but he had long given up on her, before the time jump (little by little, he realiz ...
