Hi, i'm currently looking for some good romance manga's or novel's (anime's fine too) involving an older female - younger male setting, i don't mind if it involves "taboo's" like teacher x student, as long as the age gap is there, also i'd definitely prefer if the male lead is around high school age and the female university age, unfortunately my lists are all kinds of messed up so i can't really say any related series i might have, so all recommendations are welcome (please don't recomend hentai unless it can equal or surpass Fuuga-sensai's works in plot and relationship development)

preferences: - these are what i prefer but are not 100% necessary
Decent MC - no pushover, but not excessively arrogant/douchebag
2+ year age gap
male characters point of view - i don't mind multiple pov, but since i'm a guy i want to see from the guys side
real world setting - i don't mind fantasy/sci-fi settings, but i'd prefer it set in our world

Comedy - not so much it becomes a gag manga, not so little it becomes overly serious
Strong romance - by this i mean they stay together from start of the romance to end of the novel/manga with little to no love triangle or ntr feels
Older female-Younger male - 2+ yr age gap is best, please don't say "just search the tag, for some reason it shows older male-younger female quite alot in it
Actively Translated/Complete - i want something thats actively being translated, or has already been fully translated to english, nothing worse than getting right into a story just to find out it hasnt had a new ch release in a year

don't want:
Netorare/Netorase/Netori - if you don't know netorare is where mc's girl is stolen, netorase is where mc pushes his girl to have relations with another man and netori is where mc steals a girl from someone else
- absolutely hate oneshots, especially the ones that leave you wanting more
Dark / Depressing
Psychological / Mind F_ck
Yaoi / Yuri
Shounen Ai / Shoujo Ai

The only thing I could find (that I couldn't find on your lists) is Otoyomegatari. It kind of switches between the male & female leads as POV (along with a lot of other characters). It's historical. There is a really large age difference. It is still ongoing but is actively translated (the releases are kind of slow, about every other month).

There is also the short webtoon Nineteen, Twenty-One that you might find interesting. It is mostly from the female's POV, but it does have the ages you are looking for (high school guy and university age female) and a real world setting. It is fully translated and quite short.

edit: I can't believe I forgot Palace Meidi. Female lead is an emperor (and I think around college age), and the male lead is in high school. Historical setting, mostly male POV (even though it's shoujo). Unfortunately it's not being translated anymore (which is my fault, sorry), but maybe someone else will pick it up.

thanks, and sorry for the late reply, i just got home from my holiday traveling smile

anyways, I've come across Otoyomegatari a few times, but the cover art has always put me off, so i guess it's time i force myself to ignore that and check it out bigrazz
edit: i started reading this, but i just couldnt get into it all that much, maybe because its historical which isn't really my cup of tea

as for Nineteen, Twenty-One i'm a bit iffy cause of the psychological tag, but since its short (21 ch) i'll check it out

and for Palace Meidi it does sound quite interesting, but that's a problem if its not being translated D: I'll probably hold off on reading this for a while to see if anyone starts translating it again (cause looking at the ch release dates, they were already really slow like 1 ch every 1-2 months slow)

How much NTR outside of hentai actually exists? It's practically non-existent. roll eyes
