I like the fiance/arranged marriage cliche. x3
I also like when either the guy or girl gets sick and then the love interest comes to take care of them. xD

Quote from story645
I'm a big fan of all those lil fluffy moments that are usually the same across manga.
I adore it when the girl tugs at the boys shirt right after she's yelled at him to go away, just cause it's adorable. I also like the hugs when the couple are all tangled up in each other (but none smutty) after something angsty happened.

I like this kind of manga too. The only one I read with this scene is Hana Yori Dango. ^-^

Does anyone have recommendation for mangas with that kind of scenes? And mangas with endings where the couples get married eg. Kare Kano, Tsuki no shippo and Ren-ai Shijo Shugi?

I think it's cute when the boy is so innocent (despite his bishie hotness) that whenever someone talks to them about dating or the like they blush. Also, when they blush from being touched by the person, while the girl is completely oblivious (love Shiawase Kissa Sanchoume )

I actually like several cliches! These are a few but definintely not all of them!

I like the over protective younger/older brother or father characters, when a character catches a cold and their love interest takes care of them and childhood friends -> lovers! biggrin

I definitly like the "Forced to Live Together" situation. Like in Hapi Mari, Kisu yori Mo Hayaku, or any kind of arranged marriage ^^

Within that category, I have a favorite moment. I LOVE when they have to share one bed for the first time. (I dont mean the smut). I mean when they just sleep. It can be an accident. Like: Oops the hotel only has one bed! Or pre-arranged, like: We live together so you have to stay in the same bed xD. Its usually really awkward, then there is lots of snuggling. Its so sweet to me. <3 If anyone knows any manga with this situation, please tell me!

I also like Student X Teacher mangas :x

Oh, and I know this isnt the place for this, but I dont like the "Childhood Friends" one sad I dunno. It just pisses me off to read about them.

I personally like when the heroine gains the respect of a playboy or delinquent-type character by kicking the ever-loving snot out of him, especially if he turns into a love interest because of it. Not in a masochistic way, though. It's even better if they continue to fight and bicker and it strengthens their relationship.

I'm also quite fond of a random Moe Boy showing up on the heroine's doorstep and forcing himself into her life. Usually with a limit of one per story, though. It's wishful thinking, I guess.

I LOVE when the childhood friend who was always in love with the girl and moved away reappears, and they get together and happily ever after. Sooo adorable :3

Also, the tsundere type being a possessive lover, and very protective of the girl.

The crossdressing as a guy and being surrounded by hot guys, and love ensues.

AND BROMANCE. I need my bromance. Example: Hikaru and Kaoru from Ouran. Ahhhhhh, I loved them :3

I like it when childhood friends realize they are more than that when the boy leaves the girl due to some circumstances, or when another girl appears to stir up some jealousy. I dunno, its just so sweet when the one for you has always been beside you all along.

I LOVE the "we're stuck here now." Cliche. I think:3 smile wink grin

Do you mean when the couple gets lost somewhere and cant find their way back? I just LOVE those. I'm such a romantic xD

But my absolute FAVORITE are arranged marriages!! I know, so stupid, but I LOVE it so much. Goong, Be My Sweet Darling, Hapi Mari, Hadashi de Bara o Fume. I'm pretty sure theres more but I cant find them right now. But honestly that must be becuase I have watched too many K-dramas *facepalm*

Also, I love it when the boys blush. Innocent love like Hatsukare is always cute to read smile

Oh and possessive lover and a boy who teases the girl like Kokoro Botan stuff is also great, LOL. Im so ashamed. *hides face*

Hmm...two souls in pain finding each other. Or at least one of them having a dark past. Like Mars or Bitter Virgin (though the latter is seinen). Done properly it is emotional and heartwrenching. I dunno, maybe that's not so much a cliche as something else...

Like xxkuroxx mentioned, strong but suppressed feelings can also be very good.

And like others have said, blushing boys ftw biggrin It's adorable!

I really like a guy who act so cold toward the girl and then he fall in love to the carefree girl and having trouble when he realize his own feeling (like often blushing when he do something accidentally/impulsive to the girl) and doesnít know what to do with that feeling..
Thatís why Iím head over heel toward Tsuruga Ren in Skip Beat and Kurosaki in Dengeki Daisy....

I like what I like...
I hate what I hate...
