Unlike my other requests, this one is going to be short smile

I'm looking for a manga in which a character has some sort of problem (doesn't really matter what kind), but doesn't tell others about it.
It may be, for example, because he/she doesn't want to bother his/her friends with it, or is forced not to reveal the problem by the situation or some person, or is just an introvert and keeps all problems to himself/herself. Other reasons are okay too.

It would be the best if it was a shoujo or josei manga, but others (except for ecchi, hentai, shoujo-ai/yuri) are okay too. It would be nice if there were some dramatic scenes, but I'd rather it didn't have very violent, explicit scenes.

Annarasumanara.
The main character goes through poverty and tough times. She tries to tell herself that everything is okay but it's not.

p.s. It's a webcomic but don't let that stop you. It's REALLY REALLY good.

Aren't there lots and lots of manga like that?

Anyway, I guess Tsumi to Batsu (OCHIAI Naoyuki) and Ningen Shikkaku both fit. They're seinen, though.

True for half of the characters in Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle. It's shounen though, but a very very female-friendly one.

I second Annarasumanara and Bitter Virgin

I recommend The Legend of Sun Knight / The Legend of Sun Knight (Novel). The "problems" are more comical than anything else, but they do have a more dramatic side that comes up fairly often.

I'm sorry that I haven't replied for so long, but I had problems with internet.

Thanks for all the recommendations, I'll definitely read all of them smile I would never start reading Annarasumanara if you didn't recommend it because I usually don't read webcomics, but I'll try it out if so many people recommend it. Thanks again smile

Hmmm.... It's kinda hard for me to contribute to this, but let's give it a try.

Orange Chocolate Main characters get cursed at the start of the story, however they try to resume their lives as if nothing wrong really happens. I love the writing style of this one and it's very lighthearted.

Hitsuji no Uta Guy trying to keep family illness a secret from his adoptive folks and normal friends, it has heavy drama undertones but nothing incredible horrible (to my standards, at least)... I really like this author.

Nicoichi Secrecy & white lies are an important theme of the story, if not then perhaps "Liar X Liar" might fit, by the same author, both stories are quite charming.

Tasogare Otome x Amnesia, it takes a long while for the actual problem to be apparent, you could say that the main point of the story is "I gotta know you better" but it's not a pure romantic approach, it has some action & mystery undertones.

Bitter Virgin. Meets your criteria. Is a very good seinen manga that has a shoujo/josei feel to it. Short, sweet, sad and wonderful.
