That still sounds pretty broad saying "one that doesn't suck ass". :p :haha: Why did you like the series you listed? :|

I made you titles clickable since it requires more searching to look up manga titles now with the Global search being revamped (revamped until who knows when... :x)

No, I don't think any of those are good. XD Mediocre at best.

But I'll suggest some anyways...

Boku ni Natta Watashi

This is a gender bender, so others you might enjoy with the whole gender bender theme that one has... They're all girl-into-guy unless otherwise stated [and I mean crossdressing, not gender-change... if it's something like that, I'll say that].

Power!!
Hana-Kimi <--- my #1 fav manga ;D I TRULY recommend it [see my sig?]
Hush <-- boy-into-girl with lead female still somewhat-boyish
W Juliet <-- same as Hush
Kill Me Kiss Me <--- only the 1st volume is decent then it goes down after that
Basara <--- more historical/serious, but still enjoyable as fuck
Tokyo Crazy Paradise
Idol Paradise
Ouran High School Host Club <--- hilarious and enjoyable manga and anime! READ THE MANGA AND WATCH THE ANIME! bigrazz
Charming Junkie <--- boy into girl [and hilarious as hell]
Never Give Up!
My Barbaric Girlfriend <--- both g-b and b-g
Uwasa no Midori-kun <--- smut, but if you enjoyed Desire Climax, then you probably don't mind the smut in it
Ai wo Utau Yori Ore ni Oborero <--- same author as Love Celeb [smut again] A mix of both girl-into-boy and boy-into-girl.
Charisma Doll
CUTEXGUY - it's a full-gender switch, but not like tranny like. xP Eh just read it to understand
Tenshi Ja Nai! - guy-into-girl
I also recommend 1/3 no Kareshi, Tonari no Shugoshin, Mucha Kucha Daisuki [a tragedy though, so you might cry], and Triple Kiss. All by the same author of Boku ni Natta Watashi.
Kaze Hikaru - Historical too~

I have 439563 others to recommend, especially for the other series, so I'll edit this later with more info~

Hope that helps for now though ^^

EDIT :: And I'm back

Boku no Hatsukoi wo Kimi ni Sasagu

I never read this series, but you might like Asa mo, Hiru mo, Yoru mo, another series by the same mangaka~

Love Monster

Hm... well, this is hard. -_-;

How about...

Midnight Secretary
Barairo My Honey
Black Bird
Ningyo Ouji
Kindan no Koi wo Shiyou and it's sequels

And maybe Her Majesty's Dog though it lacks the smut. -_- This might be a bit of a stretch, but how about Osaerarenai? It does have smut.

Will do more later~

EDIT2: Yay moar~

Bokutachi wa Shitte Shimatta

Yay a lot of recommendations from me XD

Moe Kare!!
Kare First Love [same mangaka]
Real Kiss [same mangaka]
Mars [if you like Mars, try [Bitter Virgin] and Kiss in the Blue. ^_^]
Akuma de Sourou
Boys and Girl
H20
Yaya
Demon Sacred
Hoosamguk High and other Hwang Mi Ri manhwas have bad boys in them... so try her ;D
Scoundrel Scandalous Honey ~smut
Lovenista ~smut
Uwasa no Midori-kun, as I suggested before, also fits in here ^_^
You're So Cool
Beauty is the Beast
Demon Sacred
Heaven!! same author as Power!! and Love Attack
Love Attack - read above XD

There's more, so if you want to hear them, just ask ^^; Same with the gender benders. I have 390658305 more. -_-; I think I've given plenty for this one series though. Ahaha. XD

I'll try to finish the rest later ;P

EDIT #395893 [I lost count] ::

Alright, more! Yay!

This might be my last update unless I decide [and you want me] to add those series I missed [especially the gender benders XP]. And smut. Duh.

Desire Climax & Love Celeb

...geez this post is so long it barely saves my updates -_-

I'm continuing my list in my other post below~

@Dubby: whoa.. you have a lot of suggestions! o_o Actually, I'm looking at your lists right now. they're really helpful for finding new series. you should give more of them ratings though, so I can decide whether I want to read them or not. XP

I've read Asa mo, Hiru mo, Yoru mo before. It's pretty short.. I finished it in one sitting. There's not a ton of room for character development, but it's still cute & fluffy. I'd recommend it. There's a little extra chapter at the end that was hilarious though. XD

I second these recommendations-
Hana-Kimi
W-Juliet (gets a little tiring/repetitious at times, but still good)
Ouran High School Host Club
Charming Junkie
Ai wo Utau Yori Ore ni Oborero (I don't like Shinjo Mayu's works a whole lot - especially Love Celeb - but I really love this one)
Tenshi Ja Nai!!
Kare First Love
Mars (I found this one to be pretty serious, but it's definitely one of my favorites)
Bitter Virgin (also serious, but very good.. it's not shoujo though. it's seinen.)
Akuma de Sourou
Love Attack
Midnight Secretary (I thought it was good at first, but where the scans are right now.. ehh..)

I also add to the list-
Faster Than A Kiss
Crimson Hero (this is one of my favorite shoujo mangas, but there's not a lot of romance and definitely no smut. it's more about volleyball and achieving one's dreams. so I dunno how much you would like that)
Venus Capriccio
BODY
Auto Focus
Gakuen Ouji
Sugar Family
Happy Hustle High
Mamotte Agemasu (short, but good)

I second Crimson Hero and a lot of those you just mentioned. ^^ I was gonna suggest them but I thought my list was already too long... and I haven't even finished. ^^; Can you tell I love gender benders? XD

Am, Hm, Ym is a good series! And I agree with the last chapter. I was so taken aback by it. XD

I know Bitter Virgin is a seinen, but it's a good one. ^^ And it does have some shoujo... stuff. Eh, a bit. -_- Well, it's a good series. So I still wanted to recommend it. ;D

I'm a lazy person regarding my lists. =P A lot of stuff in my wish list? I've probably finished / are reading like, 75+ of the series there. I need to organize my lists. And thanks, I was getting around to that but completely forgot. Aha.

I'll do that later. ^^ Thanks for reminding me~

@Reinja: haha.. well, when you don't have a fair comparison, you can't really tell how good something is. =P

Out of everything on that list, I'd probably say Ouran High School Host Club is the best. I wind up comparing everything to it and they all pale in comparison. =P

I also want to add Kare Kano to my list of recommendations. ^_^

@Dubby: if you can, will you send me a PM when you're done editing your lists please? =3 I'll probably go through your lists again and pick out some more series to read. xP

oh.. and I started to read Desire Climax... that's some pretty weird stuff... o_o not really to my tastes.

I read Desire Climax a longgg time ago, so I probably only liked it cause it was one of my early series. And I love smut. laugh

And of course. ^_^

Right now, I'm just gonna finish those lists~

And don't worry Reinja, they're not.... so bad. They're enjoyable, but not masterpieces. Don't worry. I love enjoyable series. ;D

Now to continue with my recommendations...

EDIT :: My other post was so long it took forever to save my updates. Aha. XD *sweat*

Anyways, here we go... continuing...

Love Celeb & Desire Climax

I'm jumbling these two together because they basically have the same themes. -w- Stupid heroine, dominant, rich, powerful horny male. And smut ;D

So here we go...

To start off, I'm just going to go ahead and recommend all other of Mayu's series [same person who did Love Celeb]. ^_^

Haou Airen <--- I personally hate this series, but you might enjoy it. -w-;
Love Strip <--- probably one of my favourite Mayu's series. It's hilarious and I love it~
Akuma na Eros <--- again, one of my favourites ^_^
Honey Honey Boy - He Is a Sweet Temptation
After School Wedding <--- I freaking loved this oneshot
KAIKAN Phrase <--- anime to go along with it, though it is sort of diffferent from the manga. Check out the anime if you like the manga
Sex=Love²
Sexy Guardian
Motto Oshiete
The Poisonous Flower
Just check Shinjo Mayu her whole list. ^_^; Most of it's been scanlated

Now for non-Mayu series...

Hoshigari Love Dollar
Hot Gimmick <--- if you liked Love Celeb and Desire Climax, you'll probably like this xD
Honey Hunt Same author as Hot Gimmick

Winter Flowers
Watashi no Megane-kun

S no Yuiitsu M no Zettai

And some Kurumatani Haruko series you might like...

Bishounen no Oheya
Shounen wa Amaku Aisu
Idol-sama no Yoru no Okao

Aisuru Hito I scanlate this series, and I love it so fucking much~

And others...

Romantic Beauty
Netsu-Ai Shisen
Ah! Itoshi no Caramel Boy
Boku no Tenohira de Odore
Chocolate Temptation
Meroama Lecture
Atashi no Mannaka
17 Sai Natsu - Seifuku no Jouji

That's about all I have for now. I just checked my unorganized lists. -w- I need to organize those I have in wish list to "reading/completed"

I'll go through my documents later. ;D

If you want more, just ask. I especially just have more gender benders to share. I love them~

Hope that helps for now!

P.S: I did MORE work on this than I should've... -_-
