To put it simply,
I'm searching for a story where there's a chara that seems kind of a decent person, loving, caring... but actually has twisted personality, especially, the one that's possesive to his/her most important person.
If you're reminded of Yandere title, it's also fine. I've read Mirai Nikki (All hail Yunooo!!!) and Koharu no Hibi.
But, well, to put precisely what kind of chara I'm searching for, is a chara that deceives all the people around him into thinking that he/she's an originally decent/kind person so that no one suspects him/her, while actually lying his/her trap everywhere.

Please NOT:
- a comedic one. It can have funny situations, but I prefer a serious, even dark, story.
- kinda related to previous, shoujo where main chara is decent in outer appearance but sadistic only to someone they like. There has been so many like this one (but still i can't remember a title at all -_-)
- yaoi/yuri/hentai. Though shoujo-ai and shounen-ai are fine.
- harem or reverse harem

hehe, have a recommendation? biggrin

Oh, I forgot, DOUJINSHI IS FINE!
...as long as it doesn't has the NOT factors above

Yuta from Kubera. >_>

The series will seem like a comedy at first, but eventually you'll realize that you're staring at hell in the making, so yes, the story is quite dark.

Cheese in the Trap! Should be a perfect fit.

^^ Takes awhile till Yuta gets introduced though. Seriously, he's favorite character from Kubera.

Cheese in the Trap - Love interest is two-faced. Has a reputation for being a nice popular rich guy, but he's actually quite manipulative and has a slightly cold-blooded meanness to him (which the heroine picks up on and is on the receiving end at times). The most memorable quote of the moment she realizes this:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
"I messed with the wrong person."

I got chills at that moment 'cause I totally got what she meant. The interesting thing about him, IMO, is that I'm not quite sure if he actually loves the female lead or sees her as a possession/"accomplice"/etc. I say this because based on his background and personality/tendencies, I find it a bit hard to trust his words. People's opinions vary on this. (It can be argued that he has certain signs of sociopathy.)

Tower of God - MC's best friend is like this. He's actually known for being a charismatic planner and having quite a few tricks up his sleeve, but generally a seemingly nice guy. There are very brief moments where he's absolutely vicious, like this one scene in particular during season 2 of the story to which I'm referring to. When I read it, I got shivers because I just did not see that coming at all. I suggest you don't read any spoilers and limit reading reviews because this manhwa is best enjoyed as a cold first read. It starts slow, so please don't drop it a few chapters in. It's not a damesel in distress story, it's not a harem or a romance, nor is it a Dragon Ball train, fight bigger boss shounen.

Tokyo Babylon - Shounen-ai, TRAGEDY. Meets your criteria 100%. Their story continues in X/1999 but as side characters. Man, I just feel sorry for the characters, especially Subaru. That guy never gets a break. I feel more sorry for him than Taichi from Chihayafuru, and that's saying a lot coming from me. xD

You may also want to try the male yandere tag. (Personally, I've read everything on that list with the exception of one title I'm putting on hold and another I didn't like.)
There's also the regular ol' yandere tag, but it some of them are pretty eeh.

The Legend of Sun Knight (Novel) Twisted yet funny.

Noblesse Frankenstein is a loyal servant and a sadist.

I like the setting but now I have hit chapter 8 and for my taste there is too much useless description thats why I have stopped reading for the moment maybe I will start again later but for now I am looking for a more fast paced story.

The first two volumes are like that as they are for introducing characters and forshadowing some stuffs. Believe me it gets a lot better! (Read the reviews!)

Up up

@Tetzo
Wow, I also read Mahouka and Moonlight Sculptor, and I like them very very very muuuch eyes

@dalek
I've read Mars, it's very good smile

@sunder
I've tried it, and wow... the first chap captures me so much!

To this point, I've tried
Cheese in the Trap
Interesting, I'm kinda hooked up with it. Some moments are kinda thrilling... And maybe since I'm also in college, in some moments kinda feel even empathy with her... But into season 2, the 'twisted' one doesn't really do anything yet, instead the drama... started? hmm...
Kubera
I've just read up to ch. 5, but... hmm... too much comedy. But what I'm fed up with is the main chara's characteristic+stupidity which is too mainstream for me, so I put it on hold.
Tower of God
Interesting, still continuing smile
Abnormal-kei Joshi
I don't like harem, but this one... very interesting....
Nobody's normal! Cool cool

Thank you so much for all the recommendation!
Doujinshi's welcomed too!
More more moaaar recommendation? smile

Do try Noblesse and don't get disappointed by the slow pace at start (like first 60 chapters). Later on it gets much better smile Frankenstein is a sadist wink
