Hallo, everyone! I'm looking for any manga that features child protagonists -- and by children, I mean kids under the age of thirteen. (Pre-teens.) I feel like re-living my childhood! With all its ups and downs, its thrills and wonders, its discoveries and disillusionments. Nostalgia, I guess. I've been reading a lot of child-centric manga recently.

Here are some of the stories I've enjoyed:

Gakuen Alice
Kodomo no Omocha
Nico Nico Diary
Piano no Mori
Sweet Blue Flowers
The Transient Son
Today in Class 5-2
Yotsuba To!

As you can see, I enjoy various genres, so anything except hentai or ecchi manga is okay. Don't go recommending something like Kodomo no Jikan to me! Not that there's anything wrong with that, but I'm in the mood for non-ecchi stuff right now. The spirit of childhood, you know? smile

I never read this, but Pani Poni?
Also, Azumanga Daioh has one little girl, who's a genius (It's sometimes her POV)...

Whee! Thanks for the suggestions, folks! There's a great many titles you've mentioned that I haven't read. Correct me if I'm wrong, but Mahou Sensei Negima is sorta ecchi-ish, isn't it? Anything non-ecchi would be preferred. Thanks. smile

Edit: By the way, everyone seems to be laboring under the misconception that I'm a guy. *laughs* I'm female. Just thought that I should clarify it!
