Soul Eater-Maka is a scythe technician, working to perfect her living scythe and partner, Soul Eater. By feeding on the souls of 99 humans and one witch, Soul Eater aspires to become the perfect weapon–the Death Scythe! (I actually didn't think I'd like this manga, since I'm not big on shounen, but the humor is original and the ecchi is only really present at the beginning and then it's becomes really minor and is mostly just comments. I adore the characters)

Ann Cassandra -Bekku Nanaki is mirror clairvoyant. She gets rescued from being crushed by a billboard and becomes partners with Banjou Kizaki to stop future dangerous predictions. (I enjoyed this manga but the ending was kind of weak. Only two volumes.)

oops sorry about that

Anyways, Soul Eater might be a good one, and I second that.

Quote from darknova42
After reading some of the suggestions here.. its like you guys are purposefully trying to scare this person off =x

- very shoujo-like

I don't think the suggestions have to be shoujo-like to be interested by her. Instead, shoujo-like ones will probably bore her (just my guess though). Look at her lists. She's not even a shoujo fan. XD

And I don't think Kami no Mizo Shiru Sekai is shoujo-ish. Where are shoujo-ish shounen? They are Tokyo Innocent and World End Fairytale. I am sure the first one will probably be boring and the second one, not sure, will be confusing, esp, the ending.

A funny one-shot that might be interesting: Pushu~ke~!! Psyche! (in a similar way as Genshiken and Fudanshism XD)

Hey draconia11, you need to be careful with the double posts. What you can do is use the [Edit] button on the top left hand corner of your post if you want to say something extra but no one has posted after you.

So, it might be a good thing to look over the rules to the forum once more just to make sure that you haven't missed any other rules.

And to stay on topic here are some Shounen Oneshots that you might like to look into...
Apple (KOMI Naoshi)
Island (KOMI Naoshi)
Madofuki Park
Obake Life
Rikon Choutei
Souten no Koumori
Stray Dog
Toriya Trip

And here are som Seinen Oneshots that Do not have any action and are very nice almost Josei-esque (well the mature and slice of life josei and seinen are pretty much the same anyway)...
A Serow's Deadly Fall
Always Together
Tell Me A Lie
Witch of the Flower Forest

Edit: @base_coat: Yeah, she is a shoujo reader/fan, for she has a lot of fluffy, happy, romance shoujos on her lists... it's just that she loves/has a thing for yoai more.

Thanks so much for the recommendationsss! I've downloaded a bunch.

I just can't bring myself to start on Superior for some reason. Maybe I need to see it on paper. But I'll do it.
And I have, like, 10 volumes of One Piece, since that's almost the only manga I can buy here.
Noone has recommended Tsubasa, though I have a bunch of that also.

Not suggested, actually. Many people who REGULARLY read shounen find reading it to be an impossible task.

DO NOT READ. It's like a mindf***, the plot really takes a nosedive into a pit of insanity.

I would go for Fairytail and Fullmetal Alchemist.

No romance but Claymore is awesome, as well as One Piece.
