Hi! I realy want to find some good romnce manga. But iam sick of those mangas with those overly cute and sweet mangas without a plot. I mean those mangas with big round eyes, you know which i mean?I mean Bishounen no Oheya or KImi ni Furetara. I dont like the way those mangas are drawn and most of time, they arent interesting at all.

I like drawings from Shinjo Mayu, or Watase Yu,Yoshihara Yuki, Nakamura Yoshiki and Shiomi Chika.

Something pretty but not cute.

Iam looking for something romantic but i dont care if its a drama or comedy or historical (I realy love historical, romantical magas) i like all of them, smile

I realy love manhwas from Hwang Mi RI(i read all of them), also i like stuff from Shiomi Chika, if i have to use some direct examples then Hana Yori Dango is a must, Ryo, Skip Beat(I already mentioned that i like Nakamura Yoshiki Works), Hana KImi, Real Fake Princess(LOVE that art XD), Desire Climax and of course i like all works from authors i mentioned when i spoke about what kind of drawing i prefer.

Its soooo hard to find a manga i would like, sad iam realy desperate so maybe someone can help me? Tell me as many tips as possible please! Because its possible that i already did read some of titles you mentioned, or t wont suit my taste much.

Maybe i was a bit strict when i mentioned what would i to read so basicaly . I like anything that has pretty romance, some interesting plot(not always) and pretty NOT overly cute drawing. Those sweet shoujo manga are making me mad. dead

So if you know any manga like that pretty please tell me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ps. I dont mind if its smut either XD just the oposite
And if you know some good manga with REALY pretty drawing not necesary romance tell me about it too okay ^.^

For plot and romance Red River, Basara, and Princess are some that i would recommend. All of them are fairly long and have spent a good portion of the length to develop the romance, characters, and story and for the most part there is not a point where it gets boring. However these are all more fantasy and not near a slice of life feel like some. So if you don't mind some adventure action romance and have some spare time then I would definitely suggest these.

I'm not really a big fan of romance stuff but I can recommend a classic, Love Hina is the only romance I ever enjoyed and it's really funny as well.

Maybe MARs? its a romance, pretty angsty and full of drama. its definitely not a cutesy manga. one of the genres is physchological. and its much, much more deep than the summary makes it seem.

i'm not sure if the artwork will suit what you like, but its a great manga.

Wow...sad that in almost every thread trying to look for romance, Bride of the Water God is never mentioned. I think people that like fantasy-ish, girl-taken-to-another-world-ish stories that are told steadily would like it. Anyways, it is a manwha about a girl who was sacrificed to a water god because this village was suffering a drought...More info? The water god is like a reverse of a "sleeping water lily". During the day the water god is a boy, and at night he's a guy. I HIGHLY recommend it. Not just because the drawing style is TOTALLY AMAZING and ELEGANT, but because the story is REALLY good and it doesn't drag like some shoujo mangas. Warning, though, there are a few parts where it will be confusing. Bride of the Water God is not just a manwha that you can scan through and not think about very clearly. Well...ENJOY!!!!=] biggrin

hah, I know what you mean >.> Every single page of all the cliche shoujos I've read are all kissing scenes. Here's what I recommend.

Kingyo Sou - The girl is pretty stubborn and persistent at first, but once you finish the first chapter and later ones you feel for both of them. I truly cried on all of the chapters ><

Ten no Ryuu Chi no Sakura - Hmm....Lol. Not sure if you'd like this one because it has "cutesy" drawings, but I like this one because the heroine isn't stupid and wants to become stronger for a good reason. Sorry, but I had to throw it in XD

Trinity Blood - I SUGGEST THE MANGA!!! Anime doesn't do it justice in my opinion >.>

Global Garden

Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo - Tokikake - I prefer the anime in this one. It explains a bit more, in my opinion (always with my opinions, eh? XD). The manga went to quickly, but they are both fine.

That Summer

Nanairo Sekai

Kon no Ki Konoha

Kagen no Tsuki

Bitter Virgin - Seinen

For shounen romance, I think one could do much better than reading Love Hina. And I don't think she will like that type. laugh

@Leandora
Try these:
Lilim Kiss
Ikoku Meiro no Croisée
Spiral
Toradora!
Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora
Neji to Lantern
Snow in the Dark
Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo - Tokikake

And I recommend Nana and Honey and Clover if you haven't read them. Even I, who tend to avoid shoujo romance, like them.
