Well, I'm basically looking for a romance with action and plot. Or an action with plot and romance. Whichever way you prefer it.
I'd love to read something like C-Blossom - Case 729, where you actually have a police case and romance in the background. Detective investigations would be good, too.
I want intrigue ._. And plot. I've read too many shallow shoujo, lately.

Thank you in advance!

Quote from xombiemonkey



Xombie, love. I have a question. Where the heck do you have intrigue in Battle Royale? Is there some kind of investigation in Mahou Sensei Negima, by any chance? A secret that has to be found out by the main character(s) appears somewhere in Berserk? From what you recommended only Gantz is a bit like the thing I was looking for. Why do I have a feeling that you just recommend the same things all over again?

But thank you for taking your time to answer. You wanted well, it's just an, ah, lack of understanding between what I wrote and what you've read smile.

I'm going to go out on a limb a little bit and suggest the Evangelion manga. I think that should have enough intrigue to satisfy you. No police cases though.

Well I don't know about intrigue since it's a fantasy/historical setting, but Red River must be one of the better romantic themed manga of all time. Trust me, I don't like shoujo usually, but this is one series that I couldn't let go. And don't let the old school artwork stop you, it's an all time classic. Romance is very central, but it's really about the evolution of the characters as they deal with changing circumstances. Although the plot is quite straightforward, the settings change all the time so that will definitely keep you entertained: you've got wars, betrayals, and politics mixed in with the romance.

Two other good titles are Tokyo Crazy Paradise and Superior.

Thank you for your suggestions, looks like I'll have something to read for a while biggrin. But if you'll remember anything like the thing I'm looking for, keep 'em coming. Thanks!

Jiraishin, Homunculus and possibly Blame!

There's a few more I'd say but there not even being scanlated any more despite not being licensed.

Yet there's probably more I can't remember just now...
