Neon Genesis Evangelion.

Although a lot of people don't actually like the characters, it (well, the anime version) has been used as an aid in college level psychology classes...

Second School Days.

Nijigahara Holograph (It's one volume, you've got nothing to lose).
Hatsukanezumi no Jikan
Negative Happy Chainsaw Edge (although this is still beginning, I suspect its awesomeness already).
Welcome to the NHK!

xxxholic definitely. If you go back and read from the start you can see how much the main character has grown.

It's only got a little over 2 volumes out but bitter virgin seems to be developing quite nicely.

The anime Ghost Hound.

Blade of the Immortal Has some great, fairly deep characters if you are ok with a bloodier, more mature manga.

Cat Street has a very complex main character (she's a previous reculse and overanalyzes social situations) who decides to attend a free school, and meets more equally eccentric people (don't expect to find the prince stereotype here, everyone has pluses and minuses.) Great if you're ok with shojou.

[m]Dogs Bullets and Carnage[/m]/Dogs . I just had to put this out there. The character depth makes this manga my favorite read. Characters stay true to thier personalities and have human flaws. Though they're all skewed and flawed they get together really well, which is what makes the cast great ^_^

Bitter Virgin There's alot of character growth in this one. Main character starts out as a carefree playboy, but when he discovers a classmate as been through something beyond his scope of imagining, he grows sensitive and self sacrificing, and inevitably falls for her, knowing that a relationship would be near impossible.
