I'm looking for a manga where the male characters are not bishies. Most manga present male characters as bishies and im kinda getting tired of it. Can u guys recommend some mangas where the male characters are not drawn in a feminine way? for example, mangas like berserk, full metal alchemist, kiseijuu, shin angyo onshi and veritas (i hated it though) had guys that actually looked like guys. The genres im looking for are slice of life, action or romance (i dont mind a mix of all three smile wink grin )

P.S. I dont really hate bishounen, but I'm not a fan of them either

And i would prefer it if the characters didnt look child-like or adolescent. Sorry for being so picky biggrin

well the main character of Ore Monogatari!! isnt a bishounen, but his best friend is one.. romance

and how about Ouroboros ? not really romance.. or slice of life... but there's some action?

Addition oldman action and some of the coloring is really realistic

Quite a nice selection biggrin , Bartender and Emma look interesting. Already read chocolat, the male protagonist was good looking without being girly, juts the way i like it! Please do recommend some more smile wink grin

@mikako17

Thank you for your recommendations! i've already read spice and wolf, and i really liked the way the men were drawn in it. Also read Hellsing, the main charcters a bishie, but he was just so badass, i didnt care how he looked! laugh

Haha, Chocolat was great smile Here are a few more:

Ongoing
By Chance, We... and...
Shi ga Futari o Wakatsu Made
Vinland Saga

Complete
Chinatsu no Uta The MCs are children, so don't know if that counts, lol.
Jiraishin
Mother Sarah
Shinobi no Kuni
Tetsuwan Girl
Undercurrent
Yamikagishi

These four are somewhere in between, as far as the art goes. But again, just in case:
Atashi no Banbi
Bijo ga Yajuu
ES
Made in Heaven


In the last post I was trying to combine at least two of the genres you mentioned for each manga. But this time there's usually just action, just romance or just slice of life.

Enjoy!
