Please help me looking for manga/manhwa/manhua with full of excitement plot and progressing romance. The manga itself can be focus on romance or not, as long as the romance plays big enough part. And it can be from ANY GENRE OR CATEGORY like shoujo/shounen/seinen/josei action, drama, fantasy, adventure, angst, incest, or anything EXCEPT for harem, ecchi, yaoi, yuri.

Don't want manga with:
-Plot that only revolves around summer/spring break, school festival, exams, date, christmast, school trip, valentine etc.
-Only filled by 2-3 chapter arc.
-Weak, unlikable male/female lead. (So it's okay if the lead is weak but likable)
-Slow-pace
-Too slice-of-life

Example:
Shinobi Life
Basara
Tokyo Crazy Paradise
Skip Beat
Superior
Silver (FUJITA Kazuko)
Immortal Rain

Really hoping for your recs. Thank you.

Thanks, unfortunately I've read Mademoiselle Butterfly and Reimei no Arcana, but I quite like them. As for Gold (FUJITA Kazuko), hmm, people said it isn't as good as Silver (FUJITA Kazuko), while Silver (FUJITA Kazuko) isn't really my favorite either.

Quote from Lorska


Thanks, I've already read Spice and Wolf, Akagami no Shirayukihime, Dengeki Daisy, Orange Marmalade, Akuma to Love Song, Taiyou no Ie, Bitter Virgin, Sugar Dark, and Watashitachi no Shiawase na Jikan. The bold ones are my fave, even though Akagami no Shirayukihime falls to 'filled by 2-3 chapter arcs' and Akuma to Love Song used to be my fave.
I have some problems with web-comic, I don't know when will I get over it but I know some web-comics have a really good quality and it's such a shame to miss them. One day I'll try Melo Holic. For now I'll try Iris Zero and Double Arts.

you said while reading Orange Marmalade bigrazz

guh you're one of thos 500+ list item guys, wait I'll check again and add the ones with a bit lower ratings...

ongoing:
Chou Dokyuu Shoujo 4946 don't trust the ecchi tag, it's basicly only one side-story chapter...
Hibi Chouchou but 4 chapters only so far... but I think you'll llike it
Blood Alone should be fine
Gan-Kon is cute
Serendipity another web-comic
Siesta
Tonari no Kashiwagi-san
Hekikai no AiON

completed:
Hachimitsu to Clover never thought you wouldn't have read it...
Chobits
Chokotto Sister a bit ecchi, but nothing relevant
Emma didn't like it, but should be mentioned
Karin one of the few good and cute vampire stories
Klan is a short read, you don't have top read it, but the art is quite nice
Nineteen, Twenty-One and another web-comic, but if you liked orange marmalade then this should be just fine
Orange Roof is pretty funny and sweet
Eureka Seven
Girl Friends shoujo ai is ok right?
Mamotte Shugogetten pretty random stuff and there is no ending, it just stops -_-
Midori no Hibi

you could try the Sword Art Online novel

may I say your wish list is way too long? >.< I only checked completed and reading lists...

Nah, I actually only read to chapter 11 or 12 long ago.

Anyway, while searching on my own, I'm kinda interested in Samurai Deeper Kyo and Yumekui Merry (it's okay to search on my own while waiting for your recs right?). Do they fit to my request?

Thanks! Okay... so I'm reading Hibi Chouchou, but I'm going to drop and hold until it reach 3 vol or complete before it reach so. Blood Alone and Emma seem like slow-paced manga, I'm sorry but it's a no-go. Not that I don't like it, just not what I'm looking for right now. I'm going to include 'slow-pace' at the 'don't want' list.
I've watched both season of anime version of Hachimitsu to Clover, also Eureka Seven and Chobits so I guess it's enough. I've read Klan sometimes ago and hold it, don't know that it's already complete, gotta finish it now. Shoujo ai/shounen ai is ok, as long as it's softcore.
Midori no Hibi, Karin, and Orange Roof sounds too slice of life, but they sound good so I'm gonna put them on my wish list and read them when I'm in the mood.
Tonari no Kashiwagi-san is already on my wish list. I'll try Siesta, Chou Dokyuu Shoujo 4946 for now.
Oh, and why Sword Art Online the novel? Because the manga vers is still too early?

biggrin Don't bother to read it, even I forget the contain of my wish list and I actually need some reminder. You're nice enough to even read my complete and read list.

well, deeper kyo has not that much romance, it's there but well... I'd say 80-90% of the whole manga is fighting

Yumekui Merry is really good plot-wise, there are hints of romance, and two possible candidates for him, but except for two chapters there isn't much... But it's an awesome manga

Quote from bossmama

lol nothing much I could do about it, even if it wasn't ok right? bigrazz


EDIT:

Quote from bossmama

because the novel is epic, and yeah too early for manga. the anime starts this july though, but I doubt it'll cover more than the first volume and 1 or 2 stories from the side-story volume...
and really if you hate slow paced things you'll love this, it's like filled only with plot and romance biggrin

just checked the manga, the artwork seems to be horrible and plot seem to be different, just go with the novel, it's awesome biggrin

Read it, you shan't be disappointed. Quite a lot has been translated so that should keep you busy.

I've completed From Far Away, Mars, W-Juliet and its sequel, Superior, Zettai Heiwa Daisakusen, and currently reading Private Prince. I've dropped Hana to Akuma and Tsuki no Shippo looong ago, I forget why.
I'll watch Rosario Vampire and Dance in The Vampire Bund anime first before moving to the manga. I've watched all of Seikai Trilogy anime, it's one of my favorite classic anime.
I'm sorry about Watashi no Messiah-sama, but it's harem+ecchi. Harem alone is ok, ecchi alone is ok, but harem+ecchi for me is a no-no.
3x3 eyes and Bloody Monday seem fit to my request, and they sound good, gonna put them in my to-read list. Thanks smile

Ah, Charming Junkie is one of those manga I loved, dropped because of the turtle release (in my country), picked it again to only realize I've lost the feeling I had when I read this manga in the past. Damn you maturity.
Anyway I'm gonna read Six Half, it has been in my wish list already, don't know for how long. I'm a fan of the author's works. Thank you

Quote from joyfullyme16


Thanks, I'll pick 1/2 prince since I've completed Gokusen already and sorry but Kimi wa Pet sounds slow-pace?

Quote from crumpets_and_tea


Hmm... I've completed Coelacanth, Houkago Hokenshitsu, Kieli, Heptagon, and reading Bitou Lollipop and Torikagosou no Kyou mo Nemutai Juunintachi. I've watched the whole season of Ghost Hunt, yeah it falls under 2-3 chapter. Love it though, but not what I'm really looking for right now. Still thanks!

Note: the bold ones are my fave eyes

I have no idea why it's labelled Harem... or ecchi for that matter. It has some moments, but nothing at like you might expect. The Harem is really nothing... He likes one girl, but the rest in his group think of him as a friend [though one of them does develop a little feeling for him, but nothing ever happens she gives up almost immediately]. The only thing I can think of for harem is that there is a girl on the bad guys side that falls for him hard, but really that's the extent of Harem for that release.
