I'm getting really annoyed with how whenever there's a love triangle in shoujo or josei, the jerk wins. Even if he's not a jerk, he's not the nice guy, or he's not the one who truly loves her with all his heart and is open about it. The half-hearted guy wins, or the one who's all hung up and unwilling, or the one who plays the "I'm dangerous, you shouldn't be with me" card. Devotion is hot! I need me some devotion! Please and thank you. smile

(I've already read Hirunaka na Ryuusei, and that's the best example I could come up with, sorry.)

Last Game - both 2 guys are nice :v
Koisuru Harinezumi - the nice guy wins (the other guy is annoying and irritating)

This is all I can remember, I don't really like love triangle since the nicer ones usually lose -_-

Daisuki No Yukue is a pretty good one though it's a oneshot.
Yuki wa Jigoku ni Ochiru no Ka kinda looks like it's heading in that direction.
Cat Street although both the guys are cute and caring...

That's all I have for now lol

I haven't read it, but from what I've heard it's what happens in Tonari no Atashi

Taiyou no ie by Taamo
Your Lie in April (recommend the anime)
Land of the Blindfolded

If you're willing to cross over into slice of life seinen, there's Bonnouji, which will tickle your funny bone and is bittersweet.

I recently found 3D Kanojo (shoujo) where the girl is attracted to his good nature and defend him against bad boys so consider it promoted.
Search in "The Romance News" Thread too:
