You know, I'm sick of reading shoujos where the heroine is super super cute. -_-; In the cases where she's thought to be "ugly", she actually turns out to be super pretty [Ichigo 100%, anyone? Even if it's a shounen].

PGE is a good example of what I'm looking for in a heroine. ;P Truth be told, she's not as ugly as she says, but the manga is more about her believing in herself and whatnot, and not the whole "I-think-i'm-ugly-but-actually-really-pretty".

AGAIN, I'm not looking for an UGLY heroine. XD Just one that isn't...

URGH. I can't explain that well. @__@;

...but I hope you get what I mean. -_-;

EDIT :: Koukou Debut might be... an example. ^^; Dunno. -w- I just want a series where the girl's a bit less than normal... I dunno. >_>; Ack, I suck at explaining.

EDIT II: Ah! I thought of something else! Zettai Kareshi is a perfect example of the type of heroine I'm looking for. ^_^ Not as stupid as she is, but in popularity/looks wise. ^_^

W-Juliet - She is portrayed as having great features sometimes (ex being tall and well toned). Though most of the time she looks like a guy.

Mysterious Girlfriend X - pretty plain....

Bitter Virgin - Shes kinda cute... (be ready for extreme mature content (not sex))

The last two are seinen but whatever...

Read all of those. Anyways, Bitter Virgin's not exactly what I'm looking for.

*tsuto Read Glass Mask, haven't checked out Bara no Tameni... >_> Is it any good?

Crimson Hero, maybe?

And I think you must already know of Skip Beat ^^; (I mean.. it is really famous, na?)

And if you are up also for fantasy and shounen... it is romance though, I can really recommend you Superior
... but I am kind of sure that that is not what you are looking for X'D

Bara no Tameni is hilarious. I like the main character.
She's one of those down-to-earth, believable ladies.
Unfortunately, Aerie Scans = pretty slow lately.

Nosatsu Junkie
Don't get me wrong, the heroine is cute...but you have to
read it to understand how funny/unique she is. She's a lot like
Sunako from PGE.

Hana Yori Dango
pretty common >_>;

Sorry, I can't think of anymore right now ><;

If you think Glass Mask fits what you wanted, probably Bara no Tameni does too. But well, i can't guarantee you will like it.
I add Lovely Complex

Seconded. Also, there's Jun'ai Tokkou Taichou! It's not like it really focuses on her being un-cute, just that it's kind of acknowledged... arrg, I dunno what I'm saying. Just check it out.
