I'm looking for romance mangas that are uncommon. Not the typical knight in shining armor and damsel in distress, prince and maid, and etc...

Takane to hana, a bit cliche at times but the girl is far from being a damsel in distress

Perhaps a bit old, but Kare Kano is one of my favorites that would come under that.

As someone who usually avoids romance manga exactly because of those annoying cliches most of them have, I've found these enjoyable:
Oboreru Knife
Mahou Tsukai no Yome
Kimi wa Pet
Fruits Basket
And, if you don't mind shoujo ai - Tamen De Gushi.

(And from the previous suggestions, I think I'll also give Kare Kano a shot because it sounds great)

That depends on what you mean by uncommon.
But I've read a lot of manga

After thinking about it and getting some help I have one recommendation.
From maid to mother, relativly new currently under 20 chapters if I remember correctly

I second Takane to Hana and Mahou Tsukai no Yome. Also Kare Kano is a classic.

I recently fell in love with Koushaku Reijou no Tashinami which is definitely an interesting take on isekai stuff. There is a prince though, two actually, but you can say the maid is the rival.

There's also Beastars which is definitely uncommon in a lot of ways and the main character is male. It's also definitely not shoujo.

Otoyomegatari is also always a great rec for romance and strong female leads with no knight in shining armor. Also the art is just gorgeous always.

There's probably a bunch more that I can't think of right now so I may be back, though is there anything else specific you're looking for aside from uncommon romance?

Cubism Love - Girl's brain/soul is in a box and has no body.
Diamond Life - Woman who unwittingly fall for a man
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
HIV positive
and how she comes to term with it.
Don't Cry, Girl - comedy about girl falling for a man who 's a nudist.
Hot-Blooded Woman - Girl soul is temporary in another's body and the guy she falls for treats that person like trash, but she wont stand for it being looked down upon.

Some I highly recommend:
flowers of evil - if you don't mind incest or Manhwa.
oboreru knife - someone already recommended this but I reposted because it's a beautiful manga with an unique set of of characters and execelent development.

mars - pretty old manga that is well known yet I found many have not read it yet.
six half - (also incest)
true love - incest, cute art similar to sakurada hina's style.

The sleepy residents of birdcage manor - interesting story with atypical characters
[m] eden no hana[/m]- incest warning.
nocturne- love interest is older and the adopted father. Manhwa.

the one - so long but so good.
Issho ni neyou yo - love between a runaway girl and guy who won't take mask off his face because of mommy issues.

hana no namae- huge age gap but it's whatever.
