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, ...

If you liked Hitsugi no Chaika, I would recommend checking out the author's earlier work Scrapped Princess, if you haven't already. They have very similar premises, and even though I also enjoyed Chaika a lot, I do think that Scrapped Princess is the ...

It also happens to be the first manga I've ever read. (And I started from volume nine and went backwards. I was a weird kid.)
Boys Over Flowers is also worth noting, since I also read it around that time. I don't think I ever finished it, though. I go ...

My least favourite trope is definitely gratuitous power ups. Not that characters can't train and learn techniques but I really prefer stories where a character has a limited skillset that they have to use creatively. Last minute secret techn ...

At this point, it's probably Natsunokumo. A really interesting spin on the (now-overdone) MMORPG premise. It's a very down-to-earth manga, something I've found that's a rarity in this genre (the action MMORPG genre, I mean). ...

Anything by Fujitani Youko definitely fits. Seeing as you've already read Rutta to Kodama, have you read her Aishiteru (Fujitani Youko) yet? It's shorter, but no less sweet.
Also seconding Dear Green.

For me, I usually don't pay attention to ratings before reading manga, though I tend to check them out after I read them to see if they fall in line with my own opinions.
Generally? They're fairly accurate. On average, I tend to be harsher than the ratings, ...

Clover (Clamp) is definitely the best manga Clamp ever made, I think. Nothing else really competes. It's hauntingly beautiful even in its inconclusive ending.
