Hello, this time around I am looking for a romance shoujo or josei manga(or anime but preferably manga) where the heroine is bold, aggressive or daring. When I say aggressive, I mean it in relationships and it's as if she is taking the lead. So, basically, I don't want to find an irritating heroine which doesn't let a guy kiss her or do her but a heroine who is matured and brave enough and also understands the guy.

In a nutshell:
-The heroine should be somewhat brave, daring, bold or aggressive. (They all mean the same thing.)
-Preferably, the manga should be shoujo or josei but shounen and seinen are fine. I can stomach almost anything.
-Obviously, the manga should have obvious romance.

The heroine doesn't necessarily have to be that bold. I want a heroine that actually allows her man to touch her and when I say that, I don't mean those typical heroines you find in most shoujo manga where she resists at first, shouting "No!" etc, and then lets herself be raped, etc. I don't want the typical heroine who gives in in the end. I want a heroine to be bold/brave from the start. And maybe gives her man a kiss or two once in a while? laugh

Thank you very much. Links to categories and similar topics are also appreciated.

Random Walk - basic and well done shoujo, but the romance doesn't have that one-path feeling like most

I'm not sure if these fit your descriptions exactly:

Skip Beat! - the heroine is definitely daring and aggressive about revenge at first
Dear My Girls - the romance is slow to develop, but the heroine speaks her mind and also very daring and unique in personality.

Thanks for the suggestions! (:
I have read Dear My Girls and Skip Beat! but have dropped them so maybe I will reconsider picking them up again. I haven't heard of Random Walk but it looks like a worth-read.

Hmm...I'd like to add one more thing I forgot. I think what I'm looking for is a heroine that isn't shy. Yep, that's it. They're just too many typical blushing heroines, blah blah blah. >,<

If you don't mind the heroines being somewhat perverted, then basically any manga by Yoshihara Yuki would fit your request.

I don't mind as long as they are bold or aggressive etc. I've read some of her work and, yeah, most of her girls are bold. I did not realize that. o.o

Try Rose of Versailles. The main romance takes a while to show up, but when it does she's dominant and no prude (the anime has the first bed scene in shoujo anime history, what), and ... she's definitiely bold and daring.
