I know that you mentioned that you want to help others find something to read but are you, yourself, looking for something to read within the categories and lengths you've mentioned?
If so, what length do you want to go for first and what genre/s are you most interested in reading at the moment?

Yes, I have been looking for some new series to read.
I think 'd like to read a medium manga series for now; but any length is fine really. Currently I'm reading some other books-- shorter manga series, and some other books not pertaining to manga.
I for genera wise I usually stick to reading the same genera.

I'm pretty fond of these series:
Aku No Hana (The Flowers of Evil)
Shiro Ari
Pureblood Boyfriend
The Castle in the Woods
metronome
Oboreru Knife
etc.

Do you have any suggestions for what I should read?

No problem. I probably should have checked your lists prior to submitting my post in order to avoid that but .... too late now.

No, it's fine! smile
I am actually glad that you posted all of those; since I'm still updating what I have read and stuff.
I'm glad that you read those series, I thought (the ones that were listed) were awesome! I liked those ones a lot. What did you think of Hiki?

Loved it. I liked the way that the ghost showed up and how
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
it starts popping up in places where the mc tries to get something.
It gave an interesting feel to the story. It's one of the only horrors this mangaka has ever worked on so I had to read it. Her story Mossore is hilarious. It's stupid but funny. If you're into comedy you might want to try that one. She also writes a lot of yaoi.

I will look at that. What are some mangas that you like; what are some of your favorites?

*Feel free to PM me!

There are some really good epic seinen out there that might kind of fit what you're looking for.

* Eden - It's an Endless World! - Psychological and tragic elements. A really unique sci-fi manga. It has some truly unforgettable scenes that few other manga would dare to write.
* 20th Century Boys - Psychological, horror/suspense. Another really unique manga, but you need to keep in mind that the art style is very un-cute. It's a surprisingly fast read, but don't drop it before finishing the first volume.
* Shin Angyo Onshi - It's a manhwa, and borrows a lot from Korean folklore. It's not a romance manga, but romance plays a strong role in the male protagonist's motivations. It features tragedy and it's fairly psychological, but it's mainly action/adventure.

Some shoujo also come to mind...

* Tenshi Kinryouku - My favorite manga. The plot meanders a bit at the start (I liked the characters, so I stuck with it). When a certain dramatic events happens, the plot goes into overdrive. Genres are "Action Adventure Comedy Drama Fantasy Gender Bender Historical Mystery Psychological Romance Shoujo Supernatural Tragedy". The list there omits horror, but there actually are occasional horror elements.
* Kare Kano - My second favorite manga years ago. I might put it at third or fourth now because I've changed. It has psychological and romantic elements.
* Furuba - I loved the romance and characters. It has scattered supernatural/tragedy elements and is quite psychological.

For a change of pace, so other random recommendations:

* Angel Densetsu - My favorite comedy manga. The atmosphere is completely different from the author's other manga that you've read, Claymore. The art is not as bad as it looks.
* Aishiteruze Baby - My favorite romantic couple. The summary on the series info page does it justice.

Most of these manga are around 20 volumes, I think.
