Been reading yet another harem/reverse harem (whichever it is where the girl is surrounded by lots of guys) and as usual, the guy the main character ends up with is the one that appears first.

I was wondering if there was a manga like this where the girl has quite a few love interests, but the one she ends up with doesn't come into the story straight away.
Y'know, a not so obvious romance.

Try Random Walk, its a girl who doesn't fall in love with the first guy she first meets, I quite like it since its original and rare in the manga world.

Also try Skip Beat! its a similiar scenario to the above however not as many boyfriends as the first.

Hope this helps.

Yay thanks guys, I wasn't sure whether I'd get much at all but there's a few there I haven't read, whoot ^^
There are a few manga I'm reading at the moment that I hope will turn out like this, but it's never a likely scenario.

Kind of a spoiler but Shima Shima (YAMAZAKI Sayaka) fits, josei so you may know how it goes, and romance is not the main dish, give it a try anyway

Hey, it's ok to bump this now right?
I'd really love some more recommendations. Though I'm not so much a fan of seinen/ecchi kind of mangas.

Anyways, I just caught up from where I left off in the manga Barajou no kiss and I have a horrible suspicion she's gonna end up with the guy who appeared first in the manga and I really don't want her to >_<
It's so annoying, especially when you get to like another character more.

You guys know any more?

Kakumei no Hi

It's not very long but it fits your criteria.

And yet another chance to put a shout-out for my fave manga, which fits this criteria to a T...
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
This one's protagonist does not end up with the first guy she meets that's available: Fruits Basket !!!
I'll admit, this type of manga criteria gives away the love triangle spoilers, but I just LOVE it biggrin

As they played the game...I waited for someone to call "onigiri." But no one called. I was very little then. I had almost forgotten about that. [...] But they knew...there would never be room for an a fruits basket.

I love both those manga lol but unfortunately it also means I've read them. Thanks anyways, chances were I may not have ^^

Basically it just really annoys me how many manga have a wealth of male characters interested in the main lead but it is almost always the guy she sees first that she ends up with. And more often than not he's the typical shoujo guy lead and it is just boring really.

Obviously the guy she ends up with has to be awesome. But, you know...a little suspense please?

Well maybe Card Captor Sakura and Good Ending, GE is still going. I guess those would suffice :S

Wow I had no idea there were other topics about this. I did a little search but couldn't find anything.
Thanks for posting them I'll have a good read and see what I can find.
As for Card captor Sakura, I remember it from a long time ago but it's been a while maybe I should pick it up again.
