Okay, I have looked through the forums and similar threads but the problem is... I think I have no life. I've literally read everything people seem to be recommending that is slightly popular. none

Are there any hidden gems out there I haven't read yet?
What I'm looking for is something long (at least six volumes). I like cute girls and romance but I don't really care if it's fun to read (eg. Haikyuu!!).
I do not like moe art styles and I'm not into yaoi.

Sorry if this is too broad...

I look for suggestion in the threads but it's either I've read them already or it's uninteresting to read.

Well try Uchuu Kyoudai, it's not complete but long enough.
Very enjoyable story and inspirational.

Koibumi Biyori (3 vol. One shots)
I know it's not entirely what you're looking for, the art is not moe but not that great either. The story though is very charming.

Anything by Ikuemi Ryou is guaranteed.

We have a lot in common on your lists. Maybe check mine out and pick the unchecked one. Lol.
(Sorry too lazy to list down)

Not sure what you mean by fun read since I'm not sure if you mean "light-hearted" or just good in general even though in some, or a lot of places, places it's sad/etc.. So here are a few suggestions:


My Girl (SAHARA Mizu) (Complete, Slice of life/raising a child that's only 5 volumes, though close enough I think biggrin)
Eyeshield 21 (Complete, American Football manga that is a lot of fun)
Cardcaptor Sakura (Complete, A very good magical girl manga)
Chrno Crusade (Complete, Action Adventure Historical with Demons)
Arakawa Under the Bridge (Complete, living under a bridge)
Muhyo to Rouji no Mahouritsu Soudan Jimusho (Complete, fun Supernatural read)
Sugar Sugar Rune (Complete, witches and fond memories, but I did read this a while ago)

Ookiku Furikabutte (Ongoing, baseball manga that is a lot of fun)
3-gatsu no Lion (Ongoing, shogi player finding a place where he belongs)
Giant Killing (Ongoing, football/soccer manga that's about the coach/team, not the players)

Good in General

Hellsing (Complete, there are vampires and Nazis)
Oishii Kankei (Complete, cooking manga that I felt was similar to Ashita no Ou-sama in some ways)
Kaijuu no Kodomo (Complete, very interesting manga about the sea)
Oooku (Ongoing, Historical w/ matriarchy basically)

Piano no Mori (Ongoing, about becoming a world renown pianist)
Capeta (Ongoing scanlation but complete, about kart to f1 racing)
Shoukoku no Altair (Ongoing, Historical with Turkish influence)
Sidooh (Ongoing scanlation but complete, about samurai)

And if you can't find anything more to read in the Asian comic world, try Western webcomics like these (they're fairly long too):

Unsounded (~819 pages)
Trying Human (~751 pages)
Widdershins (~599 pages)
Never Satisfied (~105 pages)

Must Read Webcomic:

You should try Ciel:The last autumn story[/m][]
It's got romance, is 22 volumes long, I think...and it's seriously good, give it a try. The fema,e lead is perfect, I thought the middle part was a bit confusing but if you keep reading on the manga just gets better, especially when Yveine grows up, the story does have multiple protagonists but the main one is of course Yveine, the others are kind of side characters with their own stories

This isn't romance but Gintama. I love to ship Kagura and Okita, so to me it's alright
[] I think it's a lot better if you the anime though, it's up to 400/500 episodes, I think.

You should try Meteor Methuselah or Immortal Rain
It's romance too, it's pretty long. I think it's a really beautiful romance with a lot of action. Try it.The female lead is so cute and strong so that's a plus.

Oh there's also 7 seeds,
which I think is awesome (' biggrin ') That's a romance too! And don't drop it because of the art, it's amazing smile Give it a try, there are multiple protagonists so you get to choose a side. The plot is very well developed and it's just so cute...

biggrin biggrin

Your mum

If you are still looking for stuff when you are finished with those recommendations, do tell, and I'll try to dig up some more, that one just immediately came to my mind.
