I'm looking for romance manga where there is more than one couple portrayed. That can be either through friends of the main character(s) who get into a relationship or a love triangle where the "losing" part then ends up with someone else or something else along these lines. Also I would like it if the side couple is more than just a plot device to develop the main characters.

I know there is the "multiple love stories" tag but it's really incomplete. No yaoi, yuri and smut please, ecchi is ok. Also no collections of one-shots or other manga where the different couples share no connection with each other. Thanks.

I can't think of anything except for Shinshi Doumei it's shojo manga with some shonen-ai and shojo-ai content, but the mangaka never shows any homosexual kisses, if that helps. But it's a really good series, I normally don't like super girlie manga but this one has a serious edge to it that makes it a good read.

Tonari no Kashiwagi-san - only 1 "side couple and that in the later chapters. (ofc) at first its focused on the main male/female lead character.

GE. That is one of the reasons that a like the manga, actually. There is both the "friends of the main couple" and the "rejected one moving on" cases.

SA - Definitely
Heroine Shikkaku - Not really sure yet, hopefully the main lead end up with the second male lead.
Hadashi de Bara o Fume - Right at the end though..
Hana to Akuma
Love Com - Actually have both though, one side couple and third parties.
Kyou, Koi o Hajimemasu

I second Dear My Girls.

Ran to Haiiro no Sekai it's not your typical romance; one guy is hated by more than half of the readers; and some things may be pretty disturbing; but, well, try it. There is for now one side couple, and maybe more later, since it's a pretty young manga.

There's nickelodeon too: one-shots, but almost all related if you pay attention.

The romance of the side couple is miles better than the main couple. Read it and you'll see laugh

Love Roma - The arts a bit odd, but the story is enjoyable.
