A while ago i read Trickster, who's main character has some sociopathic tendencies. Somewhere along the manga she finds a guy whom she tricks and forces into her ramblings and slight path of destruction. It was mainly a comedy manga, something kind of refreshing. It ended after only 1 volume.
Right now i'm reading Aku no Hana. It's kinda the same thing but darker and more evil. It came to the point i was trying to get (a path of destruction by a pair) and then boom, it turned away and led to other interesting developments.
What i'm trying to say is this: are there any manga that follow the path of destruction of a sociopathic couple, or a sociopath with a mind broken\tricked companion? Not just how they met or how they became like that, i would like a big part of the story to be them just doing their stuff. I believe i saw an episode of Criminal Minds that focused on such a couple.
I searched the sociopath category for a while but found nothing like what i want, or maybe i didn't read very carefully.
Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance.

Mirai Nikki perhabs... she definately gives you the creeps, and the other characters aren't your happy shining people either... but moderate supernatural part

Code:Breaker all code:breakers are a bit sociopath like, not much romance though and she is quite normal, well in comparison to the others at least...

Deadman Wonderland possibly, but it should be better to wait until it's completed, huge supernatural part, not very much romance

First of all thanks Lorska, i'll definatly try those mangas.
But it's not exactly what i'm looking for. I'm looking for something a little bit more, how should i put this, simple. Both mangas i've mentioned only have 2 or 3 main characters. I would prefer something without supernatural or fantasy or major organization elements. Just a couple, they don't even have to be very romantic, their rampage and maybe even downfall. Something a bit more slice of life (can i even say that when looking for sociopaths in manga?), i don't know if i'm explaining myself very well.

The World Is Mine seems perfect for you. The art may take some getting used to depending on your tastes but trust me, the weird story and main characters are worth it. And it gives detailed accounts of all their daily depraved acts as they go on their bizarre journey.

Give it a chance biggrin

@ magnet_dance yes, i just read the synopsis and it does really sound like what i'm looking for. The art does seem a bit weird, but i'll give it a go.

Cynical Orange? I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for, but some of the characters are pretty messed up. It starts out light but gets darker towards the last few volumes. You should try it even though it looks really shoujo-y lol.

This manga (that I am about to recommend) MIGHT run out of topic but if you are a fan of psychopathic lovers... Watashi no Megane-kun is highly recommended.

Right ...

sorry, kind of off-topic question but do you think you can remember what episode of Criminal Minds was the one you're referring to? 'Cause I'm currently watching Criminal Minds and maybe I've seen that episode and thus habe a better understandinf of what you mean and recommend you something.

Anyway, great series, a bit dark though, but I recommend it to anyone who can watch it without having nightmares, It's really good! One of the best criminal series I've seen.
