Im looking for mangas/anime that has plain guy and popular girl romance. school life is a must the guy is just you average joe, nothing special the girl is popular (ex: shes an idol, shes best looking in school, etc.)
I also think that plain guy x popular girl is fairly common in shoujo and shounen manga... But oh well, who could hate this classic setups in the world of romance.. hope this helps....
I don't want to be a party pooper, but I disagree with Ore Monotagari and My Hero as a plain boy x popular girl romance. I think it's more of plain boy x girl romance.
Nevertheless, I would still recommend to read them too, as they are awesome! Sorry, for not contributing, I only know 3D Kanojo since I don't read much shounen, only shoujo. I think that you should really go read "shounen" manga, plenty of popular girl x plain guy romances there, rare for shoujo though. As well, try using tags, like popular female lead.
