also, I'm looking for romance manga in which the main couple are childhood friends that is never separated for a long time, such as Gacha Gacha - Capsule

exclude: shoujo, josei, shounen ai, yaoi, hentai, original webcomic

Natsu no Zenjitsu Contains love scenes but has a great story. Ongoing.

Emma Great Seinen romance. Completed.

Otoyomegatari One of my favourite seinen/historical romance. Ongoing.

Spice & Wolf (Novel) Another great romance. From the author of Billionaire Girl which you are already reading.

thank you @lorska and @strixflash. I'll read everything you mentioned, except Spice & Wolf (Novel), because I'm reading it.
btw, all novels I'm reading are in another list.

so, no one mentioned comedy manga yet.
and about childhood main character, it really is rare, isn't it?

Quote from silvarion

The cliché is to separate them and reunite them later (you can try Mahoraba for that cliché, it is a very good comedy manga imho). I suppose I can also mention Haganai, but I'm not a big fan of it, I liked the original idea, but I think it went downhill quite fast. smile

The only one I can recall that fits your scenario is probably D-Ash. It's not so romance related though.
I can also mention Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo since I'm an Aoyama fan (there is also another couple which fits that scenario in it), but it's unlikely she's gonna win. There is a novel for it.

And putting childhood friends aside, Molester Man is the only finished romance story I rated with a 9/10 in the last 4-5 years, I think. Comedy is very good, so you should try it, don't let the art stop you.
Also I don't see anything by TAKEMIYA Yuyuko on your lists, you should try something. Toradora! (novel) is pretty good.

Try Yandere Kanojo. It's a Gag Manga, yet the romance is very satisfying imo.

And about childhood friends, copying what I posted in another thread:

Ginen Shounen
Love Hina
Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu (side couple)
Myself Yourself (anime)
Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae o Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai (warning, tragedy)
Medaka Box (I guess)
Amagami (Kaoru arc)
Change 2
W Change

Also, try Last Game if you're into childhood friends. It's shoujo, but it's really good.
