Sorry its so long lol, I kept finding more...
Yume no Shizuku, Ougon no Torikago-The first one I thought of, its by Shinohara Chie who did Red River, which you already mentioned. The plot you described, minus the hated part, is what happen ...

Bremen and Gang king are the main two I can think of. Also Bremen is delinquents in a music setting, but there is an arc at a school. ...

For the first one:
I put series that had either a school or at least a class learning skills (whether it be mecha, magic, swords, etc) with the intent of protecting or defeating something.
Non magical weapons:

Mistrea-sci fi futuristic setting, very action packed, its all explosions and fighting from the first chapter.
Peacemaker-wild wet setting, good action, lots of ties between girl and hero.
King of thorn (not fitting best cos its got a bigger cast than just them, th ...

@sapphiresky: Thanks, I already know I can add new categories. I was just wondering if 'female lead' and 'male lead' were off limits in some way. That's my question really XD.
@lynira: Right, so that would be why there isn' ...
|General protagonist categories
(4 posts, 1141 views) Posted: 1035d 15h, 20m ago by Tsubamex in Suggestions & Bugs
So I've thought this was a problem for a while, and its always bugged me when searching for manga. Though today my curiosity has got to the point where I have to ask; why aren't there general protagonist categories?

|Females with Facial Scars
(3 posts, 556 views) Posted: 1040d 15h, 7m ago by Tsubamex in I'm Looking For...
The main two mangas I can think of are:
Kizu (KIYOHARA Hiro)- (You have to read a few chapters in to get to her, she isn't an mc, but is a prominent support character and the scars play a big part in the story.)
There's also the 199 ...

The list starts with the ones I consider most psychological:
Fushigi na shounen
Alice (KIM Dong-hoon)
Hito hitori futari
G (KOIKE Keiichi)

My favs on that list are Choukakou and Liar game.
I really like Lasboss x hero, it can be slightly iffy in places, especially in the latest chapters but it definitely has a place in my heart. Mainly cause it rips the shit out of standard shounen plotlines, which I find rather hilario ...
|Real Historical Figures
(5 posts, 631 views) Posted: 1042d 17h, 50m ago by Tsubamex in I'm Looking For...
I'm not sure how correct they are historically, (I spend too much time reading manga and too little time reading non-fiction history books XD) but I do know they have real historical people in them:
Innocent (SAKAMOTO Shinichi) (Not man in the iron mask, but s ...

|Any other manga like Knight Run?
(5 posts, 833 views) Posted: 1085d 0h, 1m ago by Tsubamex in I'm Looking For...
Never read it so I'm only going by the description alone but it sounds a bit like Candidate for goddess, although its mecca, which Knight run doesn't seem to be.
Otherwise Gantz? in terms of a group of people chosen to defend humanity from aliens...The ...

Shimauma is pretty much what you want. Incredibly twisted.

Orfina is the best I can think of.
There are others, but they mostly kill off minor characters:
Arslan senki (ARAKAWA Hiromu)

(12 posts, 1545 views) Posted: 1097d 17h, 59m ago by Tsubamex in I'm Looking For...
Some of these aren't mc's but are important to the plot:
Highschool of the dead (not mc)
Aphorism (mc's love interest)
Dogs: bullets & carnage (4 mc's and she's one)
Black rock shooter - Innocent soul

Assassination classroom- I'd say the teacher's a troll, at least in the beginning anyways.
Nabari no ou-The mc can be quite a troll, mainly to his ninja teacher person. Though he isn't like that constantly.
