I wonder if what I'm asking for actualy exsists...

So, I'm looking for a story where the hero/heroine goes through hardships in some fantasy world (on a journey maybe).
Something a little sad, not comic, preferably not romantic, but I guess it's fine as well.
Something like with the mood of hoshi no koe


Maybe sienen

Not shounen and not a shoujo>< (well , maybe if it's good..)
Shounen/shoujo ai is fine.

I understand that I wasn't clear enough...
I'm looking for something more of a fantasy than historical..


I don't mind good art either>.<

Quote from Juneau
Dangu
Shin Angyo Onshi (main character male though)


Thank you!
I'm reading Shin Angyo Onshi though.
And a male lead is fine.

Kind of hated Übel Blatt...


Vagabond and Blade of the Immortal are not really fantasy..

Berserk I've been reading and glorifying for a long time^^

shokugyou tenshi<--first thing that came to mind, but shoujo

anime=Pale Cocoon & The Place Promised in Our Early Days
(sorry I like to lump those together with Hoshi no Koe)

--keeps adding

threads of time<---maybe... can't remember

I have a few more shoujo titles, but you probably don't want those =p

@lilchoconut yeah.. I don't really like shoujo so much..
But post them, maybe I'll like them..

And please, fantasy..
saikano is too shoujo-ish^^ although tragic..

Shoujo
Hyakuman Tsubu no Namida
Natsukashi Machi no Rozione
Please Save my Earth<-- iffy
Oyayubihime Infinity<-- very iffy
Hana no Koe<--quite shoujo i think...?
Kobatotei Ibun<--also iffy

Concrete Garden<---maybe... confused ? (shounen-ai)

Desert of the Stars<--maybe?


Going through my list.. I've read a lot of shoujo @_@
(still adding...)

dead too many manga to go through (i've forgotten my purpose)

@lilchocount Thank you for your efforts^^

I've read Hana no Koe and it's not what I'm looking for, not really..

Oyayubihime Infinity I've been thinking whether or not I should read it..
What do you think?)

I'll check the others, thanks a lot again^^

oyayubihime infinity....

the art is pretty, the story is kind of fluffy in a shoujo way... but its not there's enough depth in the characters to make it better than your average shoujo manga... but more character development would have been good

don't think there's too much fantasy sadness though...

good read if you have nothing else better to do xD

i rated it 8/10
(but the problem is i like mindless fluff sometimes... though this is better than mindless fluff-just a bit better ^^)

My turn to help you now. ^-^

From Far Away <---I really liked it, middle got kinda slow, but then it started picking up again. Sorry, it's a romance one, but again, I felt it was pretty good.
Darkwalker <--- Action and fantasy, but it's more modern day type. I'm not sure if there will be romance or not, but so far, there isn't.
Variante <--- Again, it's modern day type, but it's REALLY good. And the heroine has major, major hardships, trust me.
Ryurooden <--- Ancient China, war tactics, beware, it CAN get boring. No romance, well, kinda, but it's not emphasized at all.

Yup, I realized, most of my fantasy stuff is based on romance. xD Sorries.

@lilchoconut, thanks for yor review^^
Due to severe lack of time, I won't be reading it for now..


@Emerald Enigma Thank you! I enjoyed helping you^~
I like romance in the stories I read as well, but sometimes it's just to much and only interrupts with the main plot.
Variante Looks the best^^
Darkwalker looks nice as well.
The other two seem to have "old" art, which usually a torn of for me.
I'll definitely check them^^

Thanks again^^



Edit-
I would like some fantasy journey ^^

Sorry for nagging~.~
