"dark" fairy tales with happy endings
(7 posts, 573 views) Posted: 7d 13h, 50m ago by Snakering in I'm Looking For...
There's a light novel that reminds me of the manga you're looking for, so you might like reading it. It's Mimizuku to Yoru no Ou (Novel) smile ...
guy drops everything and goes on an adventure
(9 posts, 639 views) Posted: 12d 0h, 57m ago by Snakering in I'm Looking For...
This isn't manga (sorry) but the movie that came out about a year ago "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" is perfect, especially for inspiration. ...
Shoujo similar to...

Ao Haru Ride and Love Com have a similar atmosphere... pretty light but a little bit of drama smile ...
Manga for 15th Birthday (Action/ Science-fiction/ Mecha)
(34 posts, 1030 views) Posted: 12d 1h, 29m ago by Snakering in I'm Looking For...
How about Ultimo? It's got some mecha, I think, but it's also co-authored by Stan Lee. That might be a good bridge. ...
Something like Nukoduke.
(3 posts, 269 views) Posted: 22d 23h, 37m ago by Snakering in I'm Looking For...
Seconding Barakamon and One Fine Day--those are good suggestions. eyes

Try Gakuen Sousei Nekoten! It has some cute animals, though it's shounen and therefore has a little more action.

Also Damekko Doubutsu is a good one. I don't know much a ...
shoujo male lead starts as a play boy?
(5 posts, 328 views) Posted: 27d 23h, 39m ago by Snakering in I'm Looking For...
Seconding Eensy-Weensy Monster. The scene is near the end of chapter two. ...
Romance with time travel, but...
(6 posts, 736 views) Posted: 30d 13h, 50m ago by Snakering in I'm Looking For...
I think The Country Is Saved! is my best offer. It may not go in the direction your request is suggesting, but you should look into it since the premise is good.

The manga Itou-san has a oneshot "Sensei+" that's like a variation on this theme. It' ...
humiliation -> revenge -> romance
(7 posts, 759 views) Posted: 30d 15h, 20m ago by Snakering in I'm Looking For...
This made me think of the second oneshot "Liar Love Letters" in Seishun Survival, although the revenge is against a small group of people. ...
Shoujo/Josei with Plot
(5 posts, 390 views) Posted: 40d 1h, 56m ago by Snakering in I'm Looking For...
Yeah, mixing fantasy/shoujo genres will give you a lot of options. I second Kanata Kara (it's one of my favorites), and then in a similar vein there's Reimei no Arcana, Fruits Basket, and Ten no Ryuu Chi no Sakura.

On a completely different note, som ...
chubby with personality
(5 posts, 438 views) Posted: 54d 1h, 54m ago by Snakering in I'm Looking For...
Fat male leads are harder to find than females, for some reason.

Ore Monogatari!! fits some of your request really well but isn't perfect.

Otherwise, there's Ore wa Mada Honki Dashitenai Dake but I don't know much about it. I don't think w ...
Looking for a Romance Manga

Is it Nonchan to Watashi? ...
Shoujo/Josei Manga with Shounen Art?
(10 posts, 474 views) Posted: 56d 2h, 28m ago by Snakering in I'm Looking For...
How about Horimiya, which is actually shounen but still a rom-com? You might get equally good results if you look for romance-focused manga that's male-oriented--there are quite a few seinen that you would almost believe are shoujo/josei. (Emma, Love ...
A Non-Idol Megane
(7 posts, 356 views) Posted: 58d 23h, 39m ago by Snakering in I'm Looking For...
Thank you for the recommendations smile I appreciate that there's so much variety~

Sakamoto is definitely princely, but he's so overdone that I love his character. He's far from the clichés I was worried about getting. And I've neve ...
'Serious' parody
(5 posts, 406 views) Posted: 61d 12h, 26m ago by Snakering in I'm Looking For...
Magical Exam Student, but I haven't read enough to know if it has the depth you're looking for. I do remember it being amusing and also having a strong focus on what it was supposed to parody.

You could try Sekai Maou--it's classified here as ...
Manga with good art and story??
(8 posts, 475 views) Posted: 63d 0h, 40m ago by Snakering in I'm Looking For...
What about manga that are somewhat well-known, like Pandora Hearts or Tsubasa: RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE? Though the latter has het romance, it adds to the story rather than takes from it. ...
A Non-Idol Megane
(7 posts, 356 views) Posted: 63d 1h, 7m ago by Snakering in I'm Looking For...
I never thought I'd be into glasses-wearing boys in manga, but all of a sudden I was struck by how charming they are.

I'm looking for is a boy who isn't prince-like. Maybe he's a sadist, or he's all stoic and serious, or maybe he' ...
Looking for age gap manga
(5 posts, 482 views) Posted: 146d 23h, 11m ago by Snakering in I'm Looking For...
Eh Usagi Drop turns out this way (though the male seems rather pure also)... There's probably a few more "I raised my wife" types haha

Edit: just thought of Hajimari no Niina ...
Main girl/boy did not fell in love first with main lead
(9 posts, 853 views) Posted: 147d 12h, 12m ago by Snakering in I'm Looking For...
I guess these are spoilers, but:
Koukou Debut
Cat Street- though it's debatable who the male 'lead' is?
Mairunovich
Komomo Confiserie- though she wanted to be in love with the male lead, it seems like it will be a long time before she actually falls ...
Tough protagonist
(5 posts, 489 views) Posted: 149d 0h, 52m ago by Snakering in I'm Looking For...
There are manga like QP and Clover (TETSUHIRO Hirakawa). Great fighting manga with boys a little more buffed up than normal. But we're you looking for something more realistic? ...
plain/overshadowed female lead romance
(5 posts, 436 views) Posted: 149d 1h, 33m ago by Snakering in I'm Looking For...
Tomodachi no Hanashi
Kujaku no Kyoushitsu

Seigi no Mikata although in a different sense than you mean, perhaps. ...
Looking for a manga about a talking bear
(2 posts, 220 views) Posted: 149d 2h, 29m ago by Snakering in I'm Looking For...
I read this! I think it's Kumamiko - Girl Meets Bear ...
Girl marries a grown man or a girl marries a guy in a foreign country
(2 posts, 531 views) Posted: 199d 23h, 59m ago by Snakering in I'm Looking For...
Otoyomegatari is a beautiful story, and has a lot of what you want; characters who marry each other and have to learn to live together despite a major age gap. However, the female is the older one. Because it's sort of tribal, there's a bit of a cultur ...
Jodorowsky-influanced Manga
(1 posts, 260 views) Posted: 200d 0h, 32m ago by Snakering in I'm Looking For...
Did a little research, and apparently Akira was.

"Otomo had great difficulty completing the manga; he has stated that the inspiration for its conclusion arose from a conversation that he had with Alejandro Jodorowsky in 1990. Otomo later recalled that the film ...
Manga like Usogui and Yamikin
(7 posts, 461 views) Posted: 200d 0h, 39m ago by Snakering in I'm Looking For...
What about Gangsta.? It's got that dark, sort of 'underground life' theme. ...
old school shoujo?
(2 posts, 195 views) Posted: 200d 0h, 58m ago by Snakering in I'm Looking For...
Going off of Allez's rec, mangaka HIKAWA Kyouko is one of my personal favorites. Maybe also check out Miriam from her.

Another short series is Eensy Weensy Monster; they go from 'enemies' to friends to lovers. Then Lovely Complex h ...
