Short works (usually shoujo) have a tendency of being totally underrated or underexposed. So please suggest some of your favorite short (complete) manga. Preferred length is 1 to 10 chapters, but if you have a great recommendation that goes over slightly over that length, feel free to suggest it! Likewise with manga which are currently incomplete/on-hiatus, but do make a note if that is so. One-shot series are welcome too.

Here are some of my favorite short manga if you're interested:
Seishun Kouryakuhon (7 chapters)
Kingyo Sou (8 chapters)
K - Memory of Red (one-shot series)
Ikoku Meiro no Croisée (7 chapters, incomplete, on hiatus)
Touhou Shinigami: Meteor Methuselah Gaiden (10 chapters)

All except for the last one had less than 300 votes, and IMO are worth a read. Most are Oneshots, I think the max one has 5 chapters. All completed, some are ... different. I hope you enjoy the recommendations/suggestions.

So keep in mind I'm filled with typos

Reading FAQ and Forum Rules is very helpful ... so go read them if you haven't yet. Ex. -You could find out how to link mangas. Along with other useful things.

FLCL
Ann Cassandra
Haisha
Murder Princess
NOiSE
Rose Hip Rose
Last Exile - Sunadokei no Tabibito Another thing, don't bother with Last Exile: Fam of the Silverwing. It's garbage. Do watch the first Last Exile anime, however. It is amazing.
SWOT
Street Fighter III: Ryu Final Particularly if you are a street fighter fan, but even if you're not.
