Hi! This is my first time using this so please excuse me if I sound weird smile

I am looking for a good, mature (maybe Josei?), romance manga! I want a romance manga with a really good plot line that is memorable, has good character development and makes you laugh/cry/etc. I really like adventure/thriller/fantasy romance manga since I think they're more exciting than the typical high school manga but I'm not picky! Also don't mind an age gap (I thought Tsubaki Chou Lonely Planet was cute but the author's plots don't really interest me) No smut please (unless it actually has a really good plot lol). A complete manga would also be ideal ^^

Some manga that I really enjoyed were:
1. BASARA (Loved loved loved this. I just finished reading this. So. Good. The plot line was incredible and I really felt for the characters. I loved how the adventure and epicness of the manga didn't draw away from the romantic plot line. I also loved how well developed the characters were and how much you grow to love them. The side story endings after the manga were really well done and gave it a more complete feel ^^)
2. 7 SEEDS (I love this mangaka. She is literally the best. This is another adventure manga with more emphasis on the adventure and thrill with a splash of romance. You really grow to love the characters and the plot line just keeps you turning the pages)
3. KAMISAMA HAJIMEMASHITA (I really liked how the characters made me laugh! Tomoe is so funny and I really liked how the girl had to work to get the guy, and that he didn't fall for her automatically like typical shoujo manga. I also liked the whole going in the past arc and history- a really loveable story with great characters)
4. THE ONE (Manhwa- I liked how it was more mature and realistic than normal shoujo. The girl is really funny and she had to work to get the guy!)
5. GAKUEN ALICE (Even though it's about kids I feel like they matured quickly and the storyline was great. I actually loved the ending! The story made me cry towards the end. I really liked this one also)
6. SKIP BEAT (The plot is good, but it's literally taking forever T.T I really love how funny it is! I think that's the only thing keeping me from dropping it)

Please don't recommend:
NANA
HapiMari
Anatolia Story

Those were some of the ones I really liked. I really like more mature romance manga that's exciting and will get me to keep turning the page! Please give me some suggestions, I feel like I hit the jackpot with these manga and I'm excited to start reading more hehe <3 THANKS FRIENDS

Hi, here's some romances I enjoyed and think are unique!
Slow Motion wo Mou Ichido
I love the vibe and theme overall throughout the story. It has elements of nice realistic interactions, awkwardness, and growth between the two characters.
Fujiyama-san wa Shishunki
I love the style and beautiful artwork ahh, also the characters are very lovable and have one the healthiest relationships I ever seen hands down.
Kyou no Kira-kun
Gozen 0-ji, Kiss Shi ni Kite yo
Both of these stories by same mangaka, I love the author's writing and art style so much :> very unique!!
Lookism
Not as much romance as it's more about just everyday life and growing and making friends and being confident and self love. Still amazing though and worth a shot to check out! Promise it will keep you flipping haha
Koiiji
Slice of life and realistic relationship haha~ Can be a little slow and a bit frustrating though
Musunde Hiraite (MINASE Mayu)
Kigurumi Boueitai

All I can think of at the moment haha, but hope you enjoy smile
(My first time posting here too biggrin)
