It seems that most of what you enjoy has some body horror and a change from good to morally ambiguous... Not sure if my recs would fit in, but here's some with similar atmospheres.

Female MC, no romance

Could the adaptation be better?

I wouldn't say these are better than the original, but they're on par with them, at least.

Couple at the beginning of manga?
(2 posts, 2076 views) Posted: 415d 3h, 7m ago by Suxinn in I'm Looking For...
I think trying romance + slice-of-life will usually get you something along these lines. You could also try the Couple Growth tag.

Why do some people dislike vegans?
(95 posts, 6627 views) Posted: 417d 8h, 18m ago by Suxinn in Chatter Box
U.S.-centric post ahoy! If you aren't from the U.S., don't worry, I'm not talking about you.

Personally, it isn't the vegans in general I dislike, it's the white vegans who tend to be extremely holier-than-thou about their veganism. You know ...
Looking for a manga with a villain-protagonist

What do you mean by "shoujo twist"? Kasane is seinen, and it reads like one to me.

Anyway, some suggestions...

"dark" fairy tales with happy endings

I think the shoujo you're looking for is LLLL.

For the fairy tales...

Not sure if all of these have happy endings, though. Not all of them are necess ...

Kekkaishi and The Law of Ueki are two of my favorite (relatively) light-hearted shounen action series.

And the Tiger & Bunny series (Tiger & Bunny (SAKAKIBARA Mizuki)) could also work, since it's basically Japan's take on the American ...

Quality Shonen

Kekkaishi is one of my favorite shounens, though its middling bits get a bit bogged down, but its characters are great and it ends nicely.

Claymore is also great, though, recently, plot progressions have been really few and far between. It's nearing the end too, ...
