Short works (usually shoujo) have a tendency of being totally underrated or underexposed. So please suggest some of your favorite short (complete) manga. Preferred length is 1 to 10 chapters, but if you have a great recommendation that goes over slightly over that length, feel free to suggest it! Likewise with manga which are currently incomplete/on-hiatus, but do make a note if that is so. One-shot series are welcome too.

Here are some of my favorite short manga if you're interested:
Seishun Kouryakuhon (7 chapters)
Kingyo Sou (8 chapters)
K - Memory of Red (one-shot series)
Ikoku Meiro no Croisée (7 chapters, incomplete, on hiatus)
Touhou Shinigami: Meteor Methuselah Gaiden (10 chapters)

Drop by my fanfiction page! biggrin One Piece, Hetalia, Bleach, Harry Potter and more!

All except for the last one had less than 300 votes, and IMO are worth a read. Most are Oneshots, I think the max one has 5 chapters. All completed, some are ... different. I hope you enjoy the recommendations/suggestions.

Yes yes, I know I make longwinded comments, but that's just me >.<
I should proof read my comments more, but I won't...
So keep in mind I'm filled with typos

Ann Cassandra
Murder Princess
Rose Hip Rose
Last Exile - Sunadokei no Tabibito Another thing, don't bother with Last Exile: Fam of the Silverwing. It's garbage. Do watch the first Last Exile anime, however. It is amazing.
Street Fighter III: Ryu Final Particularly if you are a street fighter fan, but even if you're not.

Sarcasm just doesn't work over the internet.
