I'm looking for a relationship between male and female where both are the main character and broken emotionally. They can be lover, friend, master/servant, as long as they're not blood-related. They must have some emotional bond with each other, either it helps them, provides them a shelter, or even killing them slowly. I can eat any genres.

Side request: anyone knows which volumes of Let Dai that focuses with the main 's rlationship with his (ex)girlfriend? Some people mentioned a brief about their relationship and I'm kinda intetested, but I'm not really interested with BL, skimming through 15 vols sounds like a major time waste

Motto, Ikitai... definitely has some aspect of this.

Husk Eden seems to be heading in that direction...?

B.A.D. (SAKAKIBARA Sousou) might also fit, though it's a bit questionable whether the main female protagonist is also emotionally broken (the male protagonist certainly is). There is another (important) female character that is emotionally broken though.

The same goes for Baroque - Ketsuraku no Paradigm, since everyone is pretty much in some way messed up in that one, though not sure if the primary girl qualifies.

Bokurano definitely has some aspect of this, but it really is secondary to the struggles of each character as an individual. (Still, it is definitely a magnificent manga, so I am including it here.)

The Friendly Winter also has some of the emotional healing going on, but I wouldn't exactly qualify either of the two protagonists as "emotionally broken" in the strictest sense (at least at the beginning).

And Clover (Clamp) maybe? Though I am definitely stretching it a little here.

Also, in regard to your side request, I'm actually trudging through Let Dai right now, and, from what I've noticed so far (I'm on volume 8), most of his interactions with his ex-girlfriend centers around Dai, so there's really not much you can do to reach that part of the relationship without also having to see the BL. (And, really, if you skip a volume or so, you could miss some significant backstory/explanation for either Jaehee or his girlfriend's behavior, so...)

Maybe someone else more familiar with the manhwa or who has actually read it to the end already can give a better answer, haha.

Like the poster above me said, there isn't really a particular volume that I can remember that focused mainly on his ex-girlfriend. There are pretty much just bits and pieces through the whole thing.

The only thing I could come up with to recommend was already on your completed list, but if I think of anything I'll post it.

Okay, understood. Actually I've completed Boy Princess once only because I like the characters (except for the two leads) and the hetero couples, which only bits too and dominated by our lead bl couples

Usotsuki Mi-kun to Kowareta Ma-chan: Totteoki no Uso is probably the best manga you can find for this setting. Unfortunately it ends after 1 volume and the novel is not translated :/

Mars immediately came to mind... both leads have really messed up pasts (one of them especially) that they need to overcome... everything might not be apparent in the beginning, but things get gradually revealed...

Deep Love - Ayu no Monogatari - Its a very tragic manga and i dont know if you'd be into that
Kareshi Kanojo no Jijou - I feel that is more the boy who is broken than the girl. i dont remember all too well

And i second Mars

Hana no Namae I'm trying to remember if they are related by blood .... I don't think they are, but if so it's far enough apart that it's not gross. Since I can't remember I guess it's time for me to reread this biggrin


But this does fit with emotionally broken leads. I hope you like it.


EDIT
.... I just checked you're complete list, and this was there. Sorry for not checking before I made this post. >.<

mmh...i don't know if this counts...
Kuzu no Honkai - the male and female lead both have an unrequited love on someone else, but is only dating to each other for comfort to sooth their own loneliness..., basically, substitute lover

sorry, didn't check your reading list beforehand sad
