I am looking for manga where the main characters are not idiot like there presented in gag mangas. The don't need to be intelligent too just normal may suffice.

The genre that I am interested now are action or fantasy or both. The story should have some kind of plot and the world well defined.

And I would really love it if it also has a romance in it. But I don't want it to be the strong point. You can say that the mc hides their feeling because it will not be good for their mission or something like that. It would be better with the story ending with couples though.

The story should be updates at relatively fast pace if publishing as I don't want to wait years before reading another chapter and forget everything that happened( like freezing).

I guess Superior fits your description, because the female mc is the demon queen embarking a journey with a hero.

Clockwork Planet is recommended for you.

Tensei Shitara slime datta ken. I personally think that the mc

The legendary moonlight sculpture. You will be surprised at how much the art has changed since the beginning. In my opinion, you will like this mc.

Gun X Clover. The mc looks childish but is actually wise and experienced.

Rikudou. It's about a child who has a tragic past and started boxing. This child thinks wisely from the events he went through.

I have alot more, but most of them are popular and I'm sure you have read it. I also have a lot of old-art mangas so I'm not sure you'll like it.

here are a couple that i would highly recommend smile

Song of the Long March -this one has a really deep storyline and characters. it does not have fantasy in it but there is some action. and while there is some romance in it, it is VERY slow paced but very adorable.

Bokura no Kiseki -has both action and fantasy and all the characters are rational, some romance but it takes a backseat to the story, and though it is very good, it can be confusing with the complicated story line and how all the many characters are connected.

Kuroshitsuji -basically no romance but there is action and fantasy and a pretty good cast of characters.

Shoukoku no Altair -action but no fantasy, the main character is young so he can be naive at times but is still very intelligent, this has quite a bit of strategy in it too.

Hagane no Renkinjutsushi -if you have not read this one just go read it, it has romance, action, and fantasy and the story and characters both are amazing! it has an anime too if your interested in that.

Conductor -short but i really enjoyed this one, it doesn't have fantasy listed but it does have a fantasy element to it.

Medaka Box - The main characters literally have abilities that some call genius throughout the series. The story begins as a basic Sket Dance/Student Help type club but it quickly evolves into a lot of fast-paced battles with unique abilities if you're into that kind of thing. Romance isn't a focal point early on, but it does develop as the series goes on. The whole thing is fully translated as well.

Enen no Shouboutai - Main guy is actually pretty gifted at manipulating his unique fire ability and the world is a pretty realized setting where people spontaneously combust into fire demons. The main guy's rival is kind of stupid but he is serious in combat. Romance so far isn't a big factor but I could see it becoming so down the line.

The Promised Neverland - The setting is very well defined (I don't want to spoil it, but it's revealed very early on). Of the three main characters, two are definitely geniuses and the third isn't stupid so much as almost naively optimistic. It's a very tightly written cat-and-mouse type game for the beginning and updates on a fairly regular basis. Some of the characters like each other but it's kind of a backseat at the moment.

Hopefully one of these works for you!

I will look into clockwork planet and tensei shitara. And as for others I have finished or reading them. Moonlight sculpturer art really changed and improved in S2 and I liked.

Thanks for the suggestions.

Thanks. All are these new ones other than Bokura no kiseki being in my plan to read list already.
And these look promising.

I was thinking where have I seen the Hagane. It is my favourite anime so no wonder it sounded similar. Thanks again.

I have to say it but I didn't like the Medaka box's story at all. The romance was really bad, the action stupid and characters fools in literal sense. When I finished it long last year I thought what a waste.

And as for other mangas I will read them.
