Alrighty! Kimi wa Pet and Heart added to my To-read list. Venus wa Kataomoi and VBRose, I'll wait until they're either completely scanlated or close to. smile

More please? :>



Quote from iidesu
close physical contact? Is this some kind of euphemism for sex?

No no no! I've already mentioned that I would rather the main pairing NOT have sex. Smut is not on my preferred list, but again that has a note with it.

I guess another way to say it would be that I'm looking for skinship? (<--Would that be right??)

The examples I used were Santa Claus Panic!, in that the male lead's goal was to have sex with the female lead (allowing them some skinship) but it didn't happen in the end. In Kiss/Hug, the male lead does a lot of kissing and hugging (obviously) towards the female lead. While in Kiss/Hug they did end up sleeping together, it wasn't something that continuously happened throughout the story.

I'm not looking for a certain genre or anything. Even Junai Tokkou Taichou! has it's moments that fit my criteria, and it's still on my reading list. Hugging, hand holding, cuddling, kissing, ...etc. Nothing more, nothing less. I hope this clears it up. smile

I didn't pay attention, but I'm guessing you already read Ai Hime - Ai to Himegoto...

Technically, for the main characters: Suki-tte Ii na yo (although it's labeled smut, it's not really smut in the titillating sense... Don't get me wrong. There is sex and nudity involved for a side character, but it's handled in a social critique sense...)

Maybe Momoiro Heaven! -- at least what's been scanlated... This one's actually a pretty fun one in my opinion (it's pretty funny by Chapter 2)

What about Hakuji? I gobbled up the first volume because I was so interested in their relationship.

Uhhh... my memory's fuzzy... but Harem Lodge? Errr... Kimi to Scandal!?

Maybe Beauty Honey? There is a little bit of age gap, but I just love the dynamic relationship between the protagonists.

Whether we fall by ambition, blood, or lust,
Like diamonds, we are cut with our own dust.

I haven't read Ai Hime - Ai to Himegoto, but it's moved up on my to-read list. smile Same with Hakuji, Harem Lodge, and Kimi to Scandal!, (I recently read Bloody Kiss, so I think I'll like this one!)

If Momoiro Heaven! and Beauty Honey are as good as you two say (and the release frequency isn't bad), I'll probably read them even if they're still ongoing. smile Thanks for the recommendations!

I wait for more. :>

I don't remember it that much, but I do remember that Marmalade Boy had a lot of REALLY cute hugs in it. Enough for me to leave a comment on the series about it.

I think that's sort of what you're looking for? Good luck anyways! It's a very cute concept. smile

Moe Kare!! and Saruyama!,
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
they do it eventually
but it certainly doesn't ruin the story or anything so it's okay, you should try them out, from what i remember they have cute moments and they also have a good ending, (don't remember about Saruyama!, but Moe Kare!! does have a great ending).
hope you like them bigrazz
