Hi! So i wanted suggestions about mangas with suicide theme

Like, Orange (TAKANO Ichigo)~Kakeru kill himself because his mother's suicide. One of the saddest mangas that i had read

And Tomodachi Gokko (MOMOCHI Reiko)~Midori kill herself because of bullying and she can't take it anymore. This manga made a huge shock on me because the way she was bullied.

Pretty much... I want that the characters to be lead to kill them self because the death of a family member or bullying but that there is a chance so save them...

Kanojotachi no X-day
planning to blow up the school, more about being bullied/depressed
not a masterpiece, though. It's just fine.

Deep Love - Ayu no Monogatari
Confidential Confessions

neither of those is as good as Orange, but they might fit.

"Bungaku Shoujo" to Shi ni Tagari no Douke by NOMURA Mizuki/ KOUSAKA Rito has suicide as its main plot point. It's tagged as shounen, but it feels like a manga for both genders. A bleak, mysterious one full of suspense.

Is Suicide Club shoujo/josei? It's quite dark but really nice

I second Jisatsu Circle, but this oneshot is super depressing. If you like Junji Ito or horror in general, then try Black Paradox. To say whether or not the characters were saved is kind of a matter of opinion, but I like it. laugh

Oh I've read Black Paradox too. Though I don't really like horror, I can say, Junji Itou's works are good.

Maybe H will also be worth a look...

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
One of the characters slowly breaks down and tries to kill himself by jumping out from a window, after his (ex-)girlfriend is about to distance herself from him.

And, if you don't mind webtoons, Diamond Dust (KANG Hyung-Gyu).

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The female main character attempts suicide after she couldn't take the pressure of her partens anymore and she starts to feel like facing a dead end in her future path.

By the way, maybe the first post would have been nice to cover up the informations with a spoiler warning, because some people still haven't read those examples ... Like me. Sighs~

Edit: Just found another one with the intense Motto, Ikitai...

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The story revolves about artificial intelligence and a case of murders done by a ghost, which kills the created "human version" of itself in the end after realizing.

Let Dai by Woon Soo-yeon

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
This is a fairly long series (15 volumes) and the suicide don't occur until halfway through. A female rape victim can't move on with her life and decides to end it. She fails her first attempt, but succeeds on the second try.
