So practically i've read all of the mangas that were recommended to me in tha last few days (i read like 6-7 mangas i think) and now im looking for more cause im currently enjoying my last week of easter holidays.
What i'm looking for is again Romance and action/fantasy. This time i dont have any conditions except that the romance manga has to be completed(preferrably a non-depressing ending). Just recommend whatever you liked most. I also updated my lists. You can look there what i already read/am currently reading before you recommend something. Thanks in advance for your recommendations! wink

Damn but you guys make me feel old (okay, Jedinats entries are even older) for having to be the one to mention:

InuYasha

I also don't see Mahou Sensei Negima on your list. Despite being set in modern days, it is still very much a fantasy title as such. And it contains the best shounen type duel ever, perioid.

Again thanks for recommending. I just finished Midori no Hibi and must say it was good. Not great but good.
I already read Mahou Sensei Negima. Just didn't add it to my list yet. Although i thought the ending was a bit too open. But oh well.

EDIT: I read a few chapters of Angel Densetsu and it's one of the few mangas where i really don't like the art style so much that i don't read it. If it had some different art style then i'd probably read it.

You might want to consider the "ending" a temporary matter. Akamatsu had a falling out with the publisher over a rather shady bit of proposed legistlation. You can read about it in the internets using a bit of Google-fu.

The word is that when and if the law gets bombed back to where it belongs, Akamatsu will fill out the missing parts. Or so the rumor goes. Don't have anything official on the matter.

What i really would like to see in a romance manga is a slowly developing relationship where the girl and the guy aren't just plain retarded/clumsy/whatever. Theres a few mangas that gave me that feeling. I think Good Ending was one of them. Kagetora looks like it could be one of those as well. If you have any specific ideas let me know. (As always i prefer if it's not harem. It gets really annoying sometimes. I have nothing against 2 girls falling for one guy or the other way but 3-4 or more gets annoying)
I know im demanding quite something but i hope you guys can help ^.^

Horimiya - slow
Hibi Chouchou - slow
Yandere Kanojo - they start out in relationship
Zippy Ziggy - slow + action
Gyon-Woo & Jik-Nyu - medium

Hmm.. Well, it is pretty much porn with plot, but Velvet is kiss pretty damn good. It has plenty of explicit-ish sex scenes, and very often at that, but it is still very much a character driven manga with a clear plot arc and visible character development. Some found the ending to be disappointing, but it did fit with the general tone of the series.

Then there is Kareshi Kanojo no Jijou, one of the few straight out Shoujo entries that I found interesting and actually have bought the physical copies of.

And if you have an open mind, try Girl Friends by Morigana Milk. I still don't know why I started to read it in the first place since I don't generally read Yuri at all and my interest in Shoujo is low, but I found it to be to my liking. I don't have any other Yuri entry to compare it to, but I hear the general structure and progression of the relationship within is quite different from norm.

Aww, you should give it more of a chance. It's really one of the best manga ever released. The art also improves a bit.
