|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.
