Hello all!

I'm looking for manga/anime with two protagonists like in:
Get Backers
Shonan Jun'ai Gumi

Or/and with plenty focus on side characters as well, like in:
Tenjou Tenge
Air Gear

Could be any genre, but seinen and shonen is preferable.

Can you help me please??

Thanks a lot!!! cool

I've never read any of your examples, but you just want the story where the side characters/more than one character get their time to shine right? That's a pretty broad request smile No prefered genres or anything?

Action Type Stuff
Lessa Rano and Lessa
Tower of God lots and lots
Trinity Blood- Abel and Esther side characters get some time too *has anime

Shoujo Type Stuff
Akatsuki no Yona
Ame Nochi Hare (Bikke) It's focuses on a group

Shonen Ai
Koori Blood and Ishuca Sellghi, Rapunzel, and Wild get lots of screen time too

I don't know how to classify these..
Pandora Hearts Oz and Alice are kinda the main main characters, but everyone gets some spotlight. I like how the villains get backstory as well. *has anime
Twelve Nights 3 different characters

Small series that you probably wouldn't come across
Olimpos Ganymede and Apollo
The Conductor The POV bounces around all the time. It's very engrossing
Tamashii no Futago it's interesting

K Project - Shiro is the focus, but there is a lot of attention given to the other characters. AND, manga spinoffs for those characters. I'm a bit in love with this one right now

The spinoffs...
K - Days of Blue
K - Memory of Red
K - Stray Dog Story
there's a few more too.

Alright, that's all I got for now

Thank you, I'll surely check these!

Well, the main request is about a serie with duo main characters. Business partners, best friends and so on.

If you haven't read it already then try GTO almost all side characters get good background stories with sufficient depth.
Also try:
Arata Kangatari
Yankee-kun to Megane-chan
Not sure if Liar Game counts, there are two protagonists, but imo Akiyama gets more attention.
The last two suggestions are boy girl pairs, not sure if you had something like that in mind.

definitely second Sanctuary. It's a great read.

I give up. I see not point in living if I can't be beautiful.

Two main protagonists..

07 Ghost sticks with two protags for the most part
Full Metal Alchemist Chances are you prob already know this one.
Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro
Soul Eater

Side chars:
Gintama Definitely. Soo many awesome chars in this series. Even the most obscure side char can get their own episode. Whether you like this series is really up to whether you that kind of humor suits you.
Dorohedoro One cool thing about this manga is that there are lots of different groups of chars in conflict with each other, but but for the most part none of the groups are the 'good guys' or the 'bad guys', the story encompasses a lot of different perspectives so seamlessly in a way I've never seen in any other manga.

Ore Monogatari!! - best friends; broship to the max really ^^
Dear, Only You Don't Know! - although that has more than 2 main characters... has lots actually lol.
Kubera - this one gets on my nerves because half of it doesn't even focus on who was originally the main character lol. I still like it a lot though.
Ties of Compassion - best friends
