Okay i'm sorry the title doesn't explain it well sad what i mean is a shoujo that shows the characters as teenagers then will show them later as (i think) in the end of Aishiteruze Baby, they show the girl older. I've read another series where they show at the end the people getting married.

But yeah, wondering if anyone knows of any. Thanks.

Does it have to be Shoujo? Because D-ASH fits your description quite well as does I"s

Miriam - first 3 volumes Miriam is a young girl; last 4 volumes take place years later and she is a young woman... a very nice manga

Also would you be interested in reverse kinds where the adult protagonist visits their younger selves? (That sort of in a twisted way I think)

I recommend Sand Chronicles. But it starts from when the protagonist's 26(I think) and the story is told in flashbacks and then in the end it goes back to the present. It's really good.

I'm pretty sure something like that happens in Gokinjo Monogatari as well. Though I think it might be as a special chapter/side story or something. But that one's really good too. I highly recommend it especially if you love Ai Yazawa's stuff or read and liked Paradise Kiss.

Boku no Hatsukoi wo Kimi ni Sasagu - the 2 main characters start out as 5-year-olds and then they show you scenes from their lives up through high school. it's a little depressing though.
Fruits Basket* (but you've probably read this already. it shows the characters as high schoolers, and then at the end, as old people)
Beauty is the Beast*
Akuma de Sourou*
Tenshi Ja Nai!!*
Kare Kano*
Kare First Love*

*asterisk indicates that the characters start out in high school, but the manga goes on to show the characters getting married

I second Paradise Kiss and add Video Girl Ai, as well as Ichigo 100%

Sarcasm just doesn't work over the internet.

Oshaberi na Jikanwari is kinda the poster child for this type of series..

Also, as others have said, Sand Chronicles is big on the whole "moving through the years" thing, as is Kare Kano

Seconding Miriam. biggrin

And I think W Juliet and W Juliet II count. The first series has them in high school, and by the sequel, they're married.
