Hey guys.

So, what I'm looking for is a happy (preferably shoujo/josei) love story. Actually, it doesn't need to be completely focused on the love, but it needs to be there. I just finished reading the available chapters of Oboreru Knife and for some reason I'm feeling a bit down, you see. It would be nice if the main female character is strong (physically, emotionally, supernaturally, etc.) - for example like the girl from Miriam bigrazz. If the manga has action or adventure, then even that's better smile.

Some general manga that I liked: Akagami no Shirayukihime, Angel Densetsu, Dengeki Daisy, Love So Life, Bijo ga Yajuu, etc. eyes

Alrighty, thanks for reading my post and I hope to see some recommendations biggrin!

(And sorry, my lists are hidden right now because they're really messy bigrazz sorry 'bout that)

Aw, that's one of the requests I like to reply to~ But, the first thing I had to think about, have actually been my posts in those threads:

Best romance manga ever

An awesome romance manga...

So, maybe they will be useful for you. ^^

Like Yankee-chan said, there have already been quite a few threads with similar demands, so I'll just post the links to my other recommendations if you're alright with that:

A shoujo/josei with the same tone as...

Vanilla (Pure?) Romance

heartwarming and light stuff

Affectionate lovers and snuggling

Shows progression of relationship

Another heart-warmingly executed story I recently finished is YOKO's Molester Man. Don't let the title bother you! This manga has one of the most endearing and truthful romance stories out there. Make sure not to miss it!
