Hello! Can you please give me some SHOUJO ROMANCE manga/manhwa recommendations? Cause I'm running out of good series to read.

Please take note of these:
1. NO yaoi/yuri, shonen/ai, shoujo ai, seinen, lolicon, etc. Must only be shoujo or josei.
2. Only recommend a manga that is not on my complete list or fave ongoing list.
3. Smut/mature is definitely fine with me.
4. NO shoujo with male lead please unless there is an alternating point of view.
5. NO tragedy. I hate tragic stories.
6. Oneshots are okay, too.

That's all. smile wink grin

Ao Haru Ride: Very good, same author of Strobe Edge which is already in your list.
Taiyou no Ie: Cute!
Ookami Shoujo to Kuro Ouji: Very cliched, but somehow it's good.
Crookclock: I didn't like it very much but oh well.
Karakuri Odette: Quite a special one, same author as Kamisama Hajimemashita which was already recommended and that I absolutely second.

Please note that only the two last ones are completed.
Aand that would be it... I think I might have some more shoujo in my lists but this should be enough. I hope I was of some help.

Seiyuu Ka-! -Same author as SA, therefore the very definition of light, fluffy shoujo
Serendipity -Cute webtoon that needs more love!
Telling Through the Colors -Another amazing webtoon biggrin
Six Half
Bitou Lollipop
- The above three are all by the same author and have a distinct psychological depth to the characters.

All are highly recommended. biggrin Btw, you have an amazing complete list. You've read so much! eek

Orange (TAKANO Ichigo) - different from your typical shoujo mangas, another recommend
Oresama Teacher - Slow romance, but hilarious

These are the ones on my list that I felt were worth reading, and didn't see on your list. A lot of these are josei or story collections.

Aisuru Hito
Baby Pop
Beauty is the Beast
Bokura no Pink
Candy Life
Eikaiwa School Wars
Eikoku Kizoku Goyoutashi
Furachi na Otokotachi
Iinazuke Ryokan
Hoshiiro no Okurimono
Houkago Kiss
Hot Gimmick
Junai Strip
Kakene Nashi no LOVE Torihiki
Kuraku Naru Made Matenai
Maigo no Kemonotachi
Mitsu no Yoru
Oishii Kankei
Reikai Bidan
Renai Tripper
Sekai wa Bokura no Tameni!
Sheets no Sukima
Taboo ni Daite
The Demon Within
Watashi no Cinderella
Watashi no Ookami-san

I'm sorry if I included something that was on your list. Your list is much longer than mine. I think I picked up a few suggestions!

A lot of these are good, some just OK. I think the absolute must-read nice long satisfying series is Oishii Kankei, also called "A Delicious Relationship".

Thank you for your suggestions! Some were not on my complete list but were on my 'fave ongoing <3' list. Sorry for that. Edited the first post. I'll check them all later. Keep them coming, everyone!

Since neither Dengeki Daisy and Bitou Lollipop is on your list, I'll have to second them.
