Keppeki Shounen Kanzen Soubi


this is the funniest manga about a guy with OCD ever! Death the Kid? Senda just used his hazmat suit to kick him to the curb

it’s about this guy named Senda who on a fateful day went to the amusement park and saw this guy pick his nose then touch the entire ride’s seat so then he became distrustful of his surroundings. and it just follows his crazy life and how he can deal with romance and friendship too.

it’s shounen and shoujo with a lot of comedy and the story is hilarious so if you love a good fun read, this is for you.

some other mangas by the same mangaka are:

Jiujiu which is a sad story about a girl who lost her brother when she was little because her family hunts demons. so she decided that if people were going to die then she didn’t need anyone around her like friends. then she meets these two werewolves and it turns into a really touching story.

Sarashi Asobi is about a shinigami who likes to kill time by playing games with the people he meets. so when he meets Ren, a high school girl who is a huge tsundere and is always saying harsh things but actually means something else, he decides to play an exposing game with her before she dies. and then they become close and he slowly learns to trust people again and it’s a sweet little romance.


Yukarism


this another great new shoujo that has a past life thing too but it’s shiomi chika so you know it’s a good manga.

it’s about a writer named yukari who writes a lot of really good novels about the red light district in the edo period (?) but doesn’t have to do any research about the time because he can remember some stuff about his past life. then, a fan of his books (mahoro) comes and visits him and her visit triggers something and he starts to take these mental journeys into moments of his past life and slowly helps the people who were reincarnated into his time.

the art is gorgeous and the story is funny so if you like historical romances, you’ll like this

some of her other works are rasetsu and yurara no tsuki. those are the only two that i read anyways but they’re both about supernatural stuff so if you like ghosts and exorcists and romance, read those!


Suzuki Julietta


i absolutely love this mangaka! her stories are cute, hilarious, and the art is amazing

some of my favorite mangas by her are:

Kamisama Hajimemashita which is about a girl whose dad gets a lot of debts and she gets kicked out her house. then she “defends” a man that she meets from a dog and he tells her that she should go to his house if she’s got nowhere to go. it turns out that he was th previous god of the shrine and now he’s made her the new god and from now on she has to live in a shrine with a grumpy (and sexy) familiar and two other spirits and it follows her crazy story of godhood.

akuma to dolce is about a girl who uses magic circles to summon demons to help her when she needs help sometimes and since demons love sweet things she can make the best pastries. one day, she accidently summons a strong demon named beaut and after tasting her sweets, they become friends and it’s a really sweet romance.

another manga is karakuri odette and it’s about this robot who was built by a genius scientist so she looks exactly like a human and how she goes to school and slowly learns about making friends and having a school life and falling in love. it’s cute and touching at some points so read this too!

and finally: HAPPY THANKSGIVING! (unfortunately i can’t remember any mangas with thanksgiving scenes but if i do, I’ll post it ASAP)

Himegimi To Sanbiki No Kemono


this is another great shoujo that has really  hot guys and a strong female lead so i loved it

the story was about a country’s princess and the queen that always made her stay indoors and not really do anything. one day a note arrives saying that the infamous three beats will come and steal the treasure that was left with the princess by the former king. when those thieves arrive, a lot of stuff happens and it just turns into a touching and hilarious story.

if you love a good shoujo and love strong princess characters, you’ll like this one

some other mangas by the same mangaka are nageku shinigami (a great shoujo oneshot but it gets really sad and it has a really sweet romance) and hadaka no oujisama (a funny oneshot about a rich kid who is forced to go and live in an apartment and learn to live humbly)


1/2 Love


here is a new promising manga! it’s sweet, cute, and it’s got a pretty cliched story but it’s the good cliche

the plot is about  girl who is shy but is a huge fan of the popular idol unit with two girls called “flower”. after she’s asked to perform what of flower’s songs for some kids, two guys see (clearly the flower members) and see that she has talent. when she goes to their concert, the new member that was supposed to be introduced was injured and so they made her step in and she was a huge hit. afterwards, she finds out that the girls from flower are guys and it was very cliched but i still liked it

the art was gorgeous and the story has a promising romance between them so check it out if you like cute idol romances


Issho ni Neyou yo


i just want to set one thing straight, even though the title is kind of weird it is not at all an ecchi manga

this is about a girl who got into an incident with her sister’s baby (don’t want to spoil it!)  and runs away from home. while she’s on the run she gets rescued by a masked stranger and starts staying with him and all the other wacky people in the house.

The story is sort of sad and exaggerates a lot but ti’s  cute story. the art also had an old-ish feeling even though it was written in 2008 but i guess i just don’t like her hair.

the plot gets really sweet and it’s a really refreshing shoujo so read it if you like strong characters and romance.


Bokura no Kiseki


this is a shounen/shoujo manga that i really love! at first i thought that it would be another cliched story but it turned out to be really good.

there’s this regular male student in the class but when he was little he used to talk about remembering what happened in his past life. and that past life happened to be the life of a princess back in medieval times (i think?) and back then they could use magic. when he gets bullied, he’s actually able to remember the magic from his past life and the story just follows how he learns more about the princess and meets other people who had lived with his past life and are also starting to remember everything too.

i really loved this story. a lot of action, terrific art, and a little bit of romance so if you like fantasy mangas, this is the one for you


Sugar Family


here’s another adorable shoujo manga that i absolutely love! there are the cutest characters and a hilarious plot

the story is about a girl whose dad gets remarried and she gets a new brother who turns out to be her new teacher in school. after her dad gets married, she has to live with her brother who develops a huge sister complex and is always embarrassing her in front of the whole school and it just follows the craziness of her life.

if you love stories about doting brothers and just love humor, you’ll love this!

The mangaka also wrote a oneshot that is also short and sweet called Sakura no Himegoto so if you liked sugar family, check this one out too


Mishounen Produce


this is another shoujo that i love. it’s got incredible art, all the works by Ichinose Kaoru are incredible, and her stories are just amazing

the story is about a girl who is obsessed with a manga and has helped her childhood friend by becoming a sexy model. even though she usually looks plain with her glasses on, once they come off it turns out that she is really pretty so hes trying to keep her looks a secret from everyone and she tries to make him the best model out there and produce him.

it sounds weird but the story is just great and i love all of their crazy characters!

some of her other works are 3 Hearts, Ipaasha, Kamisama no Sonata, Megane Danshi Shinkastesu, Soleil, and Suits no Kuni. i recommend those too is you like cute oneshots


Hana wa Sakura yori mo Hana no Gotoku


here is an extremely promising new shoujo manga that came out today. even though the first chapter hasn’t been completely released, you can tell that it’s going to be good.

the story is set in the yoshino period so in the 1300s and it centers around a dancer named hakubi and from what i could gather, she is disguised as boy and performing traditional dances and is really famous. i love gender benders where girls disguise themselves as guys so if you liked seiyuu-ka! then you’ll love this!

there’s a lot of romance, beautiful art, and a really promising beginning so check it out!


Kokoro Rental


this oneshot really surprised me. at first, i though it would be another girly shoujo but this one was creepy and dark and i was a little shocked but in the end, it was great.

it’s about this store that rents out dvds that can control people so whoever rents the dvd can control the dvd with their thoughts and what they think actually happens.

the story is shoujo since it has some romance but also a lot of shounen and a little horror. or craziness but not scary. it’s just another story about people who get lost in creepy fantasies


Hyakunen Renbo


here’s the manga that can make me cry every time i read the first chapter. it’s another shoujo and i just love it!

it’s about a country that hates witches and so there’s this witch and everyone hates her because they think witches kill people and use magic so when one of the country’s princes gets sick, she makes a deal to take care of him and in return he’ll have to stay with her. once he finds out that witches aren’t bad or evil they fall in love and a bunch of stuff happens to them. (i really don’t want to spoil it any longer)

this manga has a lot of romance, some action, and a lot of comedy so if you love touching romances, this is perfect for you


TAKAGI Shigeyoshi


i just realized that i really love shoujo mangas but here’s an amazing mangaka who wrote a lot of good romances. Plus the art is absolutely gorgeous and they’re all good reads.

there’s film girl and if you’re into mangas about models and romance but without the whole drama stuff it’s perfect.

hana ni arashi is about a rich guy who fell in love with this “normal girl” and is really strong and athletic. it’s hilarious at some points and they fall in love and i didn’t really understand the ending but i loved it.

hyakujuu kingdom was about this school since that school was always being hassled by delinquents this guy showed up and made a deal that he would get rid of the delinquents if he would “rule” the school and he becomes the student council president and is like a tyrannical king at the beginning. but the vice president is the only one who disagrees with him and then there’s this really sweet love story as they try to find out more about each other and it was just cute

some other works are bara no dangan, bitter trap, and anya kouro.

all the stories are adorable and cute. lots of comedy and romance. i think even a shounen lover i told to read one of the oneshots liked it

P.S. hana ni arashi was licensed so if it isn’t at mangafox then try another site. i read it on mangahere


Shouri no Akuma


here’s another cute shoujo that i stumbled on and it’s by maki youko so you know it has to be good.

shouri akuma is about a girl who lost all her fortune and had to go to a regular school with other students who have extremely colorful characters. There’s also a guy who cross-dresses as a girl and she falls in love with him. The art is gorgeous, lots of humor, romance, and really sweet. if you liked usotsuki lily, you’ll love this.

this manga isn’t on mangafox but i read it on mangahere if you use those sites

other works by maki youko are yamamoto zenjirou to moushimasu and i recommend that too 🙂


Zombie Loan


all the people who love shounen, zombies, and action, this is one of my favorite mangas and animes

it’s kind of old (2007 old) but the story is about these two guys who are zombies and a girl with special powers who have to pay back their debt since they paid a ferryman to keep themselves alive. it’s all about them fighting these other other zombies and it’s got humor, what I’d view as a littler bit of romance, and it’s just fun to read

there’s also an anime but it’s only 13 episodes long so it isn’t half what the manga is. there’s also a lot of horror too so if you liked mangas like a ton of action, this is perfect for you!


Onnanoko Wa Koi O Suru To Mousou Shichaun Desu


I absolutely love shoujo oneshots because they’re so sweet and cute so this just became my favorite manga of the day.

it’s a compilation of oneshots by different mangakas but they’re all adorable and perfect oneshots so if you love romance (there’s even a few about otaku girls who fall in love) this a perfect read 😉


Yoshiwara Hana Oboro


to all of the shoujo lovers out there, here is a new series that is pretty promising.

it’s about a normal modern girl who gets transported back into the edo period and that’s basically the first chapter.

the summary sounds really bad and seems like it’s going to be another cliched version of inuyasha but it has romance, great art, and a really good looking guy. there’s only one chapter out now but i totally recommend it!
