I'm looking for Mangas ( preferably Romance, Shojo, Josei etc and NOT Shounen&Co ) where there is an ugly girl ( preferably the main character, but it can also be a secondary one, as long as she has a plot for herself) who remains ugly.

And i DON'T MEAN just "pretend ugly"= she wears glasses/ long bangs/ dresses out of fashion etc. and then, just takes glasses off/cuts hair/gets new clothes and voila , she's the most beautiful !
I know that there aren't many ugly drawn characters, so i guess she can also only be considered ugly by the others, BUT she should not make a transition to being considered beautiful.

I hope that makes sense...

BONUS : i would love for her to also have a love interest and maybe someone who likes her back...


I haven't found any stories like this yet so i hope someone can help me smile

THANK YOU !

Well, Gokusen might fit. Her students have thought of her as ugly but they eventually come to respect her and one even loves her.

Kuragehime, not sure if you would like it since the hole "transformation" is still there, but the main character IS ugly and only a few guys see her as pretty. It might not be what you are looking for. I like it tough,

Hmm, I personally reckon for Kuragehime, the character DOES go under some sort of transformation.... but I love it : P
It could be what you're looking for anyway so you should give it a try!

One-shot - IIRC it fits: Gaki no Koro kara

bara no tameni definitely fits. The main character is chubby and unattractive by manga standards and there is a also love interests involved.

I've already read Bara no tameni and Gaki no Koro kara and i did like them, especially Gaki no Koro kara ( such a beautiful friendship!). As for Bara no tameni, i did like it, but the ending was somewhat disappointing, still, o a good story and also pretty rare to find - a very complicated plot.

I'll start reading Kuragehime now, but any other ideas are VERY WELCOMED.

Thank you everyone !

i don't think she's really cinsidered ugly...not as in people bully and make fun of her ugly looks anyway...more like she's considered old-fashioned because she dresses in an old style and doesn't wear make-up, because she's a country girl.
personally i loved the manga, one of the best shoujos i have read, but i don't think she was considered ugly, more like old-fashioned.

Love Catalog came to my mind, but the girl isn't the main character and it takes time for her to appear.. i don't think her looks will change much, she is ugly and kinda mean XD plus it has romance!
also, its scanlation isn't finished yet, but so far i think its worth the read smile

I wouldn't say she's ugly, just dressed/hidden plainly but is actually quite cute when she 'transforms.' Still worth a read though. ;P

You might also want to try Beauty Pop and Warau Kanoko-sama since the Main Female Lead in both are plain and likes themselves that way (they were even offered a 'transformation,' but refused saying they're comfortable with who they are).
