So Im looking for a manga based off a fairy tale or maybe with some elements. Some examples could be. Heart no kuni no alice(shoujo), Lost Boys(shounen ai), Shirayukihime To 7 Nin No Shuujin
It can be any fairytale and any genre... but let it make sense

Sorry for the misspelling :C

A fairytale for the Demon Lord It's a good story (& don't let the starting decieve you. It's a webcomic so read it in one strip/webcomic format).

There's also Cinderella Boy, although that might not be exactly what you're looking for.

There are also lots of mangas based on Asian fairytales--like the mangas that are about Genji (though I'm not sure that's a fairytale, ha)

This may be stretching it, but I love: Akagami no Shirayukihime

I say 'fairytale' cause the title translates to "Red-haired Snow White"
They started out with some small similarities to Snow White (prince, apple, etc), but it has progressed on it's own from there. A great story, even if it's not exactly what you're looking for I think you should give it a try =)

Grimms manga- retelling of fairy tales
Evyione-opposite gender roles little mermaid
Zankoku na Douwatachi-horror type fairy tale retalling by the same manga-ka as ludwig kakumei (which I second.)
Shiro ari-snow white/alice in wonderland
12 o'clock bell rings-twisted cinderella one shot
Hari no Katana to Goki no Fune-Issun-boushi story, sort of like the japanese version of tom thumb/thumbelina. If you've played Okami then its the small person on amaterasu's back.
Hanatsukihime-Not sure if its based on a specific fairy tale but has elements of them.
The Missing White Dragon-Asian folk tales

Edit:Also Dokusai grimoire

If you're looking for something with a fairy tale theme, you could search for manga tagged with "Fairy Tale" or "Based on a Classic".

Some of suggestions from my own reading list are
- Swan Prince by Bi. It plays the tale of "Swan Princess" with reversed gender roles.
- Akazukin to, Koisuru Ookami by TAKAMARU Kou which is a light-hearted and loosely based variation on "Little Red Riding Hood".
- Little Witch's Diary by Yi Huan. It is not a fairy tale itself but has a lot of references to famous fairy tales.
- Akazukin to Yasashii Ookami by Palmeros. Another version of "Little Red Riding Hood" but a very bleak one at that. Skillfully told, it left me speechless.

If you didn't quite get the last one, here is an explanation:

"Stories are what death thinks he puts an end to.
He can't understand that they end in him, but they don't end with him."
- Ursula K. Le Guin, Gifts

To be savoured:
- Blood Alone by TAKANO Masayuki
- Otoyomegatari by MORI Kaoru
- Gangsta. by Kohske
- Seishun Kouryakuhon by AKIZUKI Sorata
