I'm looking for a romance where it's obvious to everyone else that the couple are in love with each other, but... the couple themselves don't know it! Like, NEITHER of them know their own feelings, or each other's feelings. Not just one of them - both of them are oblivious. To their own feelings.

The main romantic plot should revolve around the pair's slow realization of their feelings, and how they deal with that realization. Lol. An idiotically oblivious couple, I guess...

Bonus points for a chorus of minor characters that keeps insisting the main couple is mean2b, but the couple keeps denying it! (Until it becomes true, of course!)

Any genre EXCEPT hentai or ecchi is welcome. eyes

Thanks in advance! Currently, Shiawase Kissa Sanchoume seems to be like this. That's the only example I can think of off the top of my head!

I don't know any Shoujos, but most Shounen are like that, here's a list of authors (cause mangas would be too long):

Ken Akamatsu;
Kawashita Mizuki;
Seo Kouji;

That's all I can remember, but just filter Shounen and Romance and you'll get an absurd amount of manga like that.

Tantei Gakuen Q - I've only watched the anime, but the manga should follow the same pattern.

Gakuen Alice - Stopped watching the anime halfway and never read the manga, but Mikan and Natsume were obviously well on their way towards that kind of relationship, as far as I can remember.

Yami no Kodou - Probably, but the scanlation has been stalled for a long time now and is unlikely to continue, so I'm not really sure whether you'll ever be able to see where the BL is heading.

Zombie Loan -Takes about 10 volumes to get to that point; but it does happen eventually. The romance is not really a primary plot focus, though.

Skip Beat definitely, if you haven't already been reading. She's still in denial and he's just recently had the realization, even in the most recent chapters.

I would also recommend Dengeki Daisy and Kamisama Hajimemashita. I think they're pretty close to what you're looking for.

Karakuri Odetto - the girl sure is oblivous but I'm not sure if the guy like her.By his action, seems like he likes her.I'm not so sure.

Love So life - So far, both of them oblivous....

Fairly off-topic, but...

Hana Kimi does an excellent job with a concealed, partially denied relationship. Since the heroine is a girl pretending to be a boy, you wouldn't expect everyone else to be suggesting them as a couple, but by the end quite a few know or suspect her secret. And it's fun.
