I was rummaging threads for this, but I couldn't anything... And I didn't want to restart old threads, so I hope it's okay for me to ask.

I'm sick of love interests in shoujo always being princes.
I want a pathetic, spineless, loser who isn't terrific at everything he does.
Or at least average like in Monkey High...

I don't mind old art.
It has to be shoujo, because I know other genres have weak male leads. I just want to find a shoujo where it happens.

A lot harder to find than I'd thought...

Maybe Hananusubito? - he's a useless con-man

The only other ones I could even think of were Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun or Cyboy - neither are weak, but are a little pathetic. And of course you've read them already smile

Maybe Prism Baby (a stupid male lead xD)
Beast Master (The guy isn't stupid, he's just naive ^^)
Dear mine (this serie is really cute and the male lead always tries to get the girl who is older than him)
Merupuri (the male lead is really childish and cute)
Unplugged Boy
and a few more that i don't recall at all. I hope it helps xD

Ai ga Areba Ii Noda - the protagonist, if not exactly pathetic, is sluggish at work and relatively plain-looking.
