I'm looking for a Romance Manga with at least decent artwork. For some reason, I like romance manga, but not the clichee shoujo way of art. I'm also not that keen on Gender Bender, and yuri stuff.

So far, I've read/reading:
Ichigo 100%
Lilim Kiss
Suzuka
Salad Days
Love Hina
Crossroads
Koukou Debut
Parallel
Inu Neko Jump
Fruits Basket
Pastel
I"s
Hot Gimmick
IO
NHK
Kare Kano
Saikano
Onegai Teacher
Ranma
Negima
Hana Kimi
Midori no Hibi
Pretty Face

Are there any manga that you'd recommend? Any would be greatly appreciated ^ ^

Honey x Honey drops
Love celeb
Moe kare!!
Uwasa no midori-kun
Sonna Koe Dashicha Iya!
Hana yori dango
Fruit basket
Boku no Hatsukoi wo Kimi ni Sasagu
Bitter virgin
Shiiku Hime
Akuma na eros
Ayashi no ceres

Those are my best romance manga!
If u want more just check out my lists, I think 99% of them are romance XD

the sad thing is theres atleast 30 manga with these plots

but i'd recommend inu neko jump for being pretty original (and having the best line of any manga later on, anybody who read it knows what i mean)
or suzuka if your more into the standard shounen romance

the-one-with-the-girl-who-seems-perfect-on-the-outside-and-she-me ets-this-guy-who-seems-perfect-too:

Kare Kano (Kareshi Kanojo no Jijō - His and Her Circumstances)

the-one-with-the-girl-who-is-actually-an-android-created-by-Japanes e-military:

Saikano (Saishū Heiki Kanojo - She, the Ultimate Weapon)

...maybe...

Nerolynx is right. That's pro o.O. Oh yea, I forgot to put Inu Neko Jump on it.

I didn't really like it, mostly because of the art. Is it possible to find good romance manga without the clichee romance art?

Thanks for the addition. I'm gonna try all the ones that seem like the art is at least on par. Thank you.

I second Bitter Virgin
Vampire Knight - best artwork in a shoujo romance i've seen
School Rumble - Must have on your list
Special A
Hatsukoi Limited - from the mangaka of Ichigo 100%
Ah! my Goddess - give it some time after the first few volumes, the art gets better...waaaay better biggrin
Rosario+Vampire
Unbalancex2
Sugar Family
I'd recommend Skip beat but the art isn't really what i would call good...but the plot makes up for it
Shinshi Doumei Cross
Ouran High School Host Club

yea it'll just mean a whole lot of fishing, from your list you've been through some of the best and easiest to find shounen romance, in my opinion, so finding more will be tough

*just remembered some
maison ikkoku (same mangaka as ranma, amazing)
kimagure orange road (oldie)
living game

Smut crowd are we now? xD

A thousand years of snow
Ai Hime ai to Himegoto - cute(ish)
Full Moon wo Sagashite - sad but amazingly good.
Mekakushi no Kuni aka Land of the Blindfolded no words can express this manga's godliness.

A thousand years of snow (Hino Matsuri)

A Thousand Years of Snow is by Hatori Bisco, not Hino Matsuri.

Have you tried checking for other works by mangaka you like? That can turn up some good stuff. eyes
