I've been reading a lot of short stories , and not been feeling satisfied with the ending. Or I would read something long and feel as if there should have been a bit more (or a lot in some cases). I would greatly appreciate some suggestions on what to read.

Musts
- Romance
- At least 3 volumes long
- Completely scanlated
- Great ending

No
- Yuri
- Middle school aged or younger child romance
- Constantly crying female lead
- Extremely dense lead ... or even dense (slightly dense is ok)
- Having the couple get together as an ending ( Like they just agreed to try going out , End)
- Hentai

Maybe
- Emotionally weak female lead (Crying a bit is fine. Low self esteem and such great, but I can't stand useless crying.)

- Harem/Love Polygon (Ex. Something where all the girls flock to a guy constantly if NOT what I'm looking for. Now if the girls do fall in love with the male lead, but give up because they know he loves someone else is fine)

- Tragedies (Give me a heads up if I'll cry)

- Horror ( most of the time horror and romance mix because it tends to be corny so if it's not corny sure)


Bonuses : Things I like to read, but not necessary to have in it.
- Age gap (prefer older male if there is going to be an age gap)
- Student - Teacher relationship
- Psychological
- Delinquents
- Enemies become lovers
- Live in lovers
- Stockholm syndrome
- Dark Ambience
- Angst
- Cold lead

I think that covers it.* Hentai is a no, but Borderline H, smut, etc. is fine.
My complete list is public, feel free to check that out. If something is on my wish list that you're suggesting then I would have to read it just to move it to the complete list smile wink grin

I"s a very unusual ending for a shonen romance
Video Girl AI
Saikano this one is really really sad. Probably the saddest thing I've ever read.

Noticed Emma and Love Hina are on your list, but have a checkmark next to them. Love Hina may have a harem-like thing going on but I'd advise you to read Emma.

Cross Game maybe. It's mostly about baseball, but it has some nice romance elements in there.

Hetakoi - Got to be one of my favorite sienen romance mangas. Has some smut but its definitely not hentai. Drama wasn't really listed as a req. or a negative but its got quite a bit in it. Has a solid ending.

Molester Man - Judging it by its title doesn't do it justice. From what I remember it had a decent enough ending.

Immortal Rain - Shoujo action adventure manga that's fairly long and has a good ending. It does have some pretty tragic scenes in it though.

Maybe Usagi Drop can fit into the requirements and has an age gap romance in it. I thought the ending was good enough considering the story line but it seems there's probably as many people that dislike it as like it.

I'm finding it difficult to think of anything, because what I think is a good and appropriate ending may disappoint someone else.

I found these to have satisfying endings, at least to my taste.
Living Game
Mana
Oishii Kankei
Kozure Ookami (INOUE Satou) yaoi, both the main story and the second story.
Un Carnet de Bal (Butoukai no Techou) - yaoi, tears will be shed

From your wish list:
Maigo no Kemonotachi - I didn't expect the ending, but liked it.

I really like how ANDO Yuki handles her storylines. Check out her works Sakana no Yume & Motto, Ikitai...

Coelacanth, Candy Life & NG Life had nice endings. You can also check out OGAWA Yayoi sensei's other works.

I love how IKUEMI Ryou handles her oneshots. Do check out her oneshot collections.
And I also think Sakisaka Io's works have a very heartwarming end. So you should check out all her works (apart from Aoharaido).
TAMURA Yumi's works also have great endings!

I know I've mentioned some short volume works, but they are really good!

I already read Emma , Love Hina, and Saikano. Cross game has a tragedy tag ... will it make me cry?
Thanks I'll give the others a shot.

Hetakoi is new. Sounds like my cup of tea. I love drama I should have added that to the bonus list, but yeah anything is fine I just wanted to point out my dislikes, and musts. The rest I already had on my wish list
smile wink grin I'm going to have to bump them up to the top now.

Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I even had to make a new list to place these in. Now all I need to do is decide which one to read first.
Still open to more suggestions.

Hana to Akuma. Heads up -- yeah, you might cry. She is fourteen at the start of the romance,but she's older later on and the ending is to die for.
I'll second Immortal Rain, one of my favorite ever manga. Tragedy, but with a happy ending. Yeah, you might cry.
Fullmetal Alchemist, I thought it ended all right, you might cry in some parts.
Hanazakari no Kimitachi e I actually don't remember how it ended, but I loved the manga as a whole.
Maybe try I-Revo?
Annarasumanara was a little odd, but simply beautiful. It's a manwha, and though I usually don't like manwha, this one really held some magic. wink
It's a volume short, but please consider Sarashi Asobi. I thought this one was lovely.

How did that have a great ending?
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
there's no magic. the one guy who believes in it is mentally unhinged. life is mundane, but i'll keep living i guess.
Mileage may vary I suppose, but I hated the ending and the whole direction the manga went in the end... but even if you like it I don't see why it should be recommended for its ending--it just drifts off into nothing.

But then again you're even recommending a manga you don't remember the ending for...

How is Annarasumanara's ending good? Well, for me, it was like I had lost myself in the story, and was torn back to reality at the end, only to be let gently back into the magic in the very last chapter. It was an incredible feeling, and what I would believe to be one of the most beautiful endings I have ever read. I suppose it would differ from person to person. It is, like I mentioned, a little odd, so I suppose it's one of those things that you either love or hate, but I thought it was fantastic. After all, recommendations are based on other people's opinions, and this is simply mine.
