I can pretty much only recommend ones with romance. Mostly shoujo. But these have female characters that I generally really liked and respected.

I was thinking recently about how satisfying it is when an argument leaves the opponent spluttering. I have my own, but it's just as satisfying hearing other people's. So if you've got a good one, please share. (Sorry if there's a thread for t ...

it differs quite a bit from what you wrote, but I can't help thinking it's Can't Lose You. Yooi takes a job acting as a double for a rich girl who looks identical. She falls in love with the other girl's fiance. Major spoilers:

I think it's the same thing as why when you see an open drawer and a sock on the floor, you would close it and pick it up. It's aesthetically pleasing. It's satisfying. Sure, plenty of people can say "I don't care about keeping my room c ...
