As listed, I am craving more series with victorious childhood friends! Since my reading list is quite long, please do not concern yourself with the possibility that I may have already read it.

Since this topic has the potential for massive spoilers, please list your suggestions within a spoiler box!

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Example


Small list of requirements:

Must not have a same sex main coupling. Side couple, or even love rival (one sided) may be same sex.
Must not be ridiculously pretty! Male lead must look normal to masculine, no bishes!
NTR is an immediate killer! True NTR, not forced situations.
Death of one of the main coupling prior to an epilogue is a no-go! Think happy thoughts!

Your assistance is greatly appreciated! Please avoid reading the spoiler boxes to save yourself the pain of spoilage! smile wink grin

Not to be rude, but please note that bumping is only allowed after a week.

Just wait patiently and if people have some good titles to suggest which suits your requirements, they will definately do that without fail.

Man this one made me think XD Though after thinking about how one can become victorious in comparison to another I came up with a lot >_>, like: becoming successful, or they succeeded in a dream that both shared or achieved a different social status/something great. so hopefully one of those is what you meant........in terms of the whole bishie thing, characters in manga are usually prettier or not true to real life so I'll let you be the judge if you do or don't like the manga style.

Magi-
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Has one arc where it deals with one of the main characters and his childhood friends' reunion, the main character had been in poverty but lifted out to be a prince when his father the king found out about him. Then later the main character still has success, despite not being a prince anymore so that whole relationship and arc was based around the sort of thing you're after


Kokou no hito-
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Has childhood friends that become jealous of his success in climbing, because their dreams never amounted to anything


Scarlet palace-
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Thereís this bit where we find out about the past between the king and the chief eunuch the mc likes and finds out that they were childhood friends and they're in a relationship (maybe, maybe not don't entirely know for sure) and that he's not a eunuch...so childhood friend becoming king and riding on his success kind of story


Kuroko no basuke-
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Has childhood friends who were on the same basketball team in middle school, all on different teams and in different high schools. Then they all compete against each other and so has various members of them victorious at different times


Cat street-
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
If my memory is correct, it was the fact that her friends were becoming successful or finding their place in life that pushed her to try to sort her life out


Scarlet chair-
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Childhood friend in poverty becomes king


Savage garden-
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Two orphans in an orphanage, a boy and a girl and the boy finds out that he's got a father thatís a noble. He sends him a letter and then is invited to become the nobleman's successor (or something) but something goes wrong and the girl becomes successful instead


Berserk-
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Childhood friend of the mc becomes really successful in combat and gains favour with the king but then....things go a bit wrong


One piece-
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Has various childhood friends and loved ones that follow the successes and adventures of the crew


Kizu-
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Kind of victorious in his own slightly morbid way lol. MC's childhood friend becomes really good at using his super power...


Good witch of the west-
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
MC's childhood friend becomes victorious in his quest for the truth of the world, which the mc strives to help him pursue


Pandora hearts-
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
mc goes off into a parallel dimension thing for a time and when out many years have passed and his friend that was once quite weak-willed became a strong adult, but he still has his normal body


Chihayafuru-
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
MC discovered the sport/card game because of another boy and when he moves away they promise to keep playing the game and playing in tournaments so they'll meet each other again, but one becomes really good in a short while and stops due to circumstances and the girl mc keeps going becoming higher and higher in the national rankings


Vinland saga-
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
well sort of, two of the characters were kind of friends and when ended up being killed, whereas he was at the time a prince that was likely to be killed off, though it depends what you call victoryboth of them achieved things, though the manga asks whats the greater victory

@Tsubamex, I'm pretty sure the OP means Victorious Childhood Friends as depicted in this link:http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ChildhoodFriendRom ance?from=Main.VictoriousChildhoodFriend on it's TvTropes page. So, a romance about the main couple being Childhood Friends at first. But please correct me if wrong.

As for suggestions, there is:

Kekkaishi

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Yoshimori has a one-sided crush on Tokine, and the ending implies they get together but is still rather open-ended.


Last Game

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Start off as rivals, one-sided, but then devolps into love (still onesided).


Cross Game

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The author, Adachi Mitsuru, is really good. A manga focused primarily on sports and the death of loved ones, it's a slow romance, but does develop.


In general though, all of these mangas can be found by doing a advanced search and checking off "romance" and typing in "Childhood Friend/s" in the categories/tags section.

ohhhhh lol, I was wondering but it didn't mention romance apart from the couple thing...which people often mention even when they're looking for something unrelated to their request. Though I did think victorious was a rather strange word to use, very misleading -__- If that is the case I can delete some LOL. Too big of a post for something thats totally wrong.

well.....not totally wrong, there is romance like that in there you just have to ignore everything i said in the spoilers lol. Out of all those I said, only Chihayafuru, good witch of the west, savage garden, Berserk and scarlet chair have that type of romance in them (ironic they overlap lol) oh and scarlet palace to a point.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Though in savage garden I'm counting childhood as also being teenage, cos the second love she ended up with, rather than the first childhood friend. Plus don't go for Berserk if you want happy thoughts....Chihayafuru and good witch of the west are probably the best recs out of them all
Also I'll add The pale horse for this scenario.

Thank you both greatly! There were a few that I have already read, but this will help expand my reading list.

To clarify, I did indeed mean romance, but a good story is a good story none-the-less. smile wink grin

Again, you have my thanks.

I can't really think of a relationship that fits the category in Berserk. By the way Tsubamex, does that mean you did end up reading through it? I remember you were considering it.

XD ok, sorry for the mix up.

@ Bafflement: Yes I did smile Although gotta admit, I'm half way through it. I'm stuck on a page and can't get passed it lol. I keep going back to that page, attempting to read it, get bored and then distracted again XDD Its chap 193 when they're introducing a bunch of new characters and its just like =___= urggg. Though I did love the fairy free flashback, and surprisingly its not the fairy's fault im stuck XD I will finish it someday soon (hopefully >_>) cos it is a good manga.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Well I meant Caska and Guts, they were kids when they first met and they did get together for a short period of time....but looking at it with fresh/not-4-am eyes, it was a bit too brief to be called victorious and nothing of it stayed particularly happy ever after so yeah you're right lol. scratch that one.
