Hi
I'm pretty new to manga and I'm having trouble finding ones that I really like. Could I ask of some assistance? smile

I'm into anything that's realistic and could happen in real life. Plus I have to like the main characters. Other than that, I'm open to anything. I like things that make laugh, has tasteful romance, drama, and anything else really.

My first one was Fruits Basket and I really love KouKou Debut and 23:00 right now too.

Any suggestions?

Cat Street
Suki ni Natte mo Ii no?
Trill on Eden
Backstage Prince
Boys and girl

and if you liked 23:00, try also Beauty is the Beast and Eikaiwa School Wars ( same mangaka, similar manga )

Lol ok, well I like characters that you can relate to and could exist in real life, ordinary people.

Not sure how to define realistic but you might like these:
Rumors (it's a one-shot)
Kodomo no Omocha
Beauty is the Beast
Atashi no Bambi
Karakuri Odette
Beauty Pop
xxxHolic (in a supernatural-ish realistic-ness)

Spicy Pink
Bitter Virgin (rating it M for mature ok?)
Girlfriend (smut)
Hoshi wa Utau (from the same author as Furuba)
Sai Natsu Seifuku no Jouji (one-shot, smut)
Mademoiselle Butterfly (cute story. Time frame is 'way back in the day')
NANA
Special A (one of the very best.)

It'd help if you listed other genres you accept or don't. (yaoi, smut, yuri, gender bender, josei, etc..)

=)

Um... some popular ones...:

Special A
Vampire Knight
Host Club

for some-what realistic (I guess...), how about Kimi wa Petto, Death Note and Paradise Kiss (among other works by Yazawa Ai)?

For really realistic-ish (I'm not really sure seeing how I've only read Parasyte out of all these titles.):

Parasyte
Sakuran
Ii Hito
Confidential Confessions and other stuff by MOMOCHI Reiko.

I wouldn't really think Host Club fit... It isn't realistic at all :/ Those host club people don't live those kind of lives. ><

That's why I listed it under "some popular ones", I didn't mean it to be realistic. I just thought that if they liked Furuba and Koukou Debut, they might like Host Club...

I'd suggest something like Azumanga Daioh for a newer reader.

Basing on koukou debut, I'll assume you're okay with the meet cute scenario, but you want more toned down/grounded? you may like:

comedies:
Nodame Cantible
Lovely Complex
Nosatsu Junkie - don't let the model thing throw you off, the lead's still pretty relatable

on the drama side:
Good Morning Call
Kiss Zekkou Kiss
Hot Gimmick - the main pair is questionable, I happen to like the side one more
Kare Kano - tilts to the melodramatic, but if you like FB this may work
Seconding Nana (even my brother finds it relatable)

Shorts:
The King's Pawnshop
Hayabusa (ROPPONGI Aya)
Solanin - it's mostly about growing up

Oh well I'm still going through the process of figuring out what I do and don't like but I wouldn't mind a few suggestions from these genres. Just as long as it's tasteful and not unrealistic.

Thank you for all the suggestions so far everyone smile

not really realistic, but good:
Merupuri
Power!! (gender bender)

yaoi/shounen ai:
Kamakiri
Dousaibou Seibutsu
Love Mode
