Sorry for asking for your help again... But I really got into manga. xD
Well... As the title says, I wanted to find a shoujo manga with romance. I'm a romantic person and I love those things. But I really want a manga with an original plot.
I don't want:
- shounen-ai, shoujo-ai, yuri, yaoi, hentai, mature or smut.
I prefer a shoujo (or a good shounen), so josei and other stuff isn't for me. xD
And it has to be a japanese manga, since I prefer those ones... ^^

I wanted something like Mekakushi no Kuni, Kare Kano, Fruits Basket, Merupuri... It may have the supernatural/fantasy element (I like those things as well xD). But I think you understand what I mean... A good shoujo manga with romance.
So, any suggestions, please? ^^
If you want to have an ideia of what I like, check my lists. ^^

hm...i think I'll just list off a couple, some are more original than others so you can look at them and judge for yourself.

B.O.D.Y.
Koukou Debut
Nadeshiko
Skip Beat!
Special A
Tokyo Crazy Paradise (This one has more action than romance, but I just threw it in there b/c i like it laugh )
Absolute Boyfriend
Beast Master
H3 School (probably not exactly original, but I found it entertaining)
Imadoki
Moe Kare (has an interesting plot twist)
Hana Kimi
Kodocha

if you want cutesy fantasy stuff i'd suggest CardCaptor Sakura or Shugo Chara although both can be sort of childish (but i liked them anyway bigrazz )

Pretty much you can just look at my lists and they are full of romantic stuff (i'm a romance addict laugh )

Oh and I forgot to mention Ouran High School Host Club but you have to be REALLY patient for the love scenes...Haruhi is kind of dense and nobody really realizes their feelings until ch. 50ish...but its really funny for the time being eyes

Let's see... I had already read Beast Master, Card Captor Sakura, Aishiteruze Baby and Marmalade Boy. I'm now reading Lovely Complex, Ouran Koukou Host Club, Vampire Knight and Koukou Debut (I'm waiting for new chapters for all of these).
I checked the other ones you said... Some of them looked really cool and I added them to my wish list. But some others I didn't like at all... I don't like smut or something like that, it makes me feel embarrassed (that's true xD). And about the other mangas that aren't shoujo... I don't feel comfortable with them. I like shoujo mangas, but not those childish ones like CCC or something like that... For now, I'm not that open minded for trying something different. xD
I'll make my list public so you can see the manga styles I love. ^^

What about Sailor Moon? The romance is light, but it's really cute and it focuses around friendship and relationships, ect.

yeah... what?...



Anyway, I second bitter virgin and everything by yoshihara yuki, although she writes smut, it funny and pretty romantic...
Somebody mentioned Chiyou yo Hana yo by her. It's really low on the smut... roll eyes

I start reading some of the mangas you told me... But I got bored somehow... I don't know why, but I only liked Special A. So, I think I need help... Again. xD
Can you advice me some really good shoujo romances, please? ^^

Hitsuji no Namida
Gokinjo Monogatari
Tenshi Nanka Janai
Shitsuji-sama no Okiniiri
Sunadokei
Crimson Hero
Complex (shoujo)

Have you tried doing a genre search? That way you can eliminate the categories you don't want from your search, like smut or shounen etc.

Moe Kare, Kare First Love, and Full Moon wo Sagashite are manga's that you might like. (:
And if you like MeruPuri you should definitely read Vampire Knight. n_n
