Ok, i have 2 requests ~Please state which 1 your suggesting for with a 1. or 2. thanks~

1. im looking for manga similar to Hikaru No Go or Turititi Nagisa. (wish it couls be picked up by a scanlater group again)
I like how its based on something that is not widely used in manga (fishing) so im looking for others with the same sort of theme, doesnt have to be fishing, just unconventional for manga.

Must have:
romance - subplot only (not necessary for the manga, but prefer it)
unconventional theme - eg. fishing, skating, car racing etc. (doesn't have to be a sport or game, could be a profession like in skip beat! - acting)
actively scanlated or complete
plot - i dont like gag manga so needs to have some sort of story
comedy - as stated above no gag

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2. epicly yandere, i havent read many yandere manga so im not exactly sure what is good and whats not. something along the lines of Bride of Enma would be good

Must have:
romance - ofcoarse or there wouldnt be yandere XD
plot - i dont like gag manga so needs to have some sort of story
comedy - as stated above no gag
actively scanlated or complete

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dont want for either:
Gag
Oneshots
Yaoi
Yuri
Shoujo
- shoujo is ok aslong as its Skip Beat! style
Josei - i dont mind romance but josei is a little to much for my tastes
Shounen Ai
Shoujo Ai
Rape
Hentai
Doujin
Smut
Gender Bender
- this is ok ONLY if its girl dressed as guy
Gore - (a little is fine but i don't want it to be like Gantz)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Please check my lists, if you see anything on my lists (complete, maybe, to be checked, hold, waiting, reading, faves, reading-CS) that you think i should read sooner/re-read etc. please let me know, thanks.

Love Tyrant has an over-the-top yandere, but has some gaggish elements. There's still a story there, though.

For yandere you could try Koharu no Hibi, but it's not very comedic.

There is another series with a yandere that started recently (and even shows some promise in terms of story) called Akarui Sekai Keikaku

Thanks for your suggestions smile

@sunder - thanks, ive checked the available chapters of Love Tyrant and so far its ok

@jahu - i read Koharu no Hibi after seeing your sugestion and i really liked it, but from what ive been told this is "low level" yandere, i wouldnt mind seeing what "high level" yandere is, also ill check Akarui Sekai Keikaku when theres some scanlated chapters

@unsinkbar2 - thanks, ill give Mirai Nikki a look, but im not really into the "Tragedy" genre so i may not like it, just hate things too heavy and serious, but thanks

@reid1 - thanks but i wont read that, simply because its josei, and every josei ive ever attempted to read, the romance ALWAYS overpowers everything else and i dont want that

Should keep you busy a while XD, sorry I got nothing on the Yandere request.

Ok, but I'm still gonna say that I don't usually read josei either and this is a rare exception (also its anime was the best anime of the season). And there is basically no romance for quite a while, but well the choice is yours. smile

@Tsubamex thanks ill check them out edit: out of all of them Addicted to curry and Silver Spoon(Gin no saji) is the closest to what im looking for, it has basically all the elements i want, so more like that would be great, and as a bonus its by the same author as Full Metal Alchemist biggrin

@reid1 i see, if this is an exeption for another person who doesnt like josei ill give it a look then, but cant guarantee ill finish it

Nanamaru Sanbatsu - Competitive quiz bowl. Kinda fun.

Donten Prism Solar Car - Title says it all.

Glaucos - Diving.

BaggataWay - Lacrosse.

Noririn - Biking. Last update was close to a year ago, unfortunately.

Bambino! - Cooking! Sequel getting no love though.

Hopefully some of them will be to your liking.
EDIT: Aw, crud. Just realized half of them aren't actively updated, Still, I hope that won't deter you too much.
