Ah! Itoshi no Banchousama (Dear School Gang Leader)


this manga is a mix of shoujo and shounen but it’s really fun to read when you’re bored.

Hayaka was just a regular girl when her parents got divorced and now she and her mom have moved to anew town to make a fresh start. (it isn’t another story about ghosts in the countryside) To make things easier for her mom, she decides to go to an industrial high school. When she arrives she finds that the school is filled with delinquents who always get in fights and that there aren’t any other girls in the school. Then she becomes friends with the school’s strongest fighter and other colorful characters and after a lot of things happen she becomes the school gang leader of the school.

the art is nice, the story is cute and full of humor so if you want a few laughs then try this one

Nobara no Hanayome


here’s another cute shoujo with a storyline that is pretty similar to wild ones but read this anyways

it’s about a girl named chizuru whose mom borrowed a hundred million yen then skipped town. just when she’s about get into trouble, kuze who’s the third heir to the umegaki gang shoulders the debt for her and in return she has to be his fiancee. and so she has to pretend in school, go through spartan training, and deal with all the other weirdos that she meets and it’s a really cute manga.

The art’s gorgeous, there are cute romantic moments, if you like shoujo mangas you’ll love this

the mangaka also wrote two other oneshots and they’re both adorable:

The Honeybee Earl and the Flower Dress

Moujuu wa Ori no Naka

 


Shounen Hakaryuudo


this is a shounen/josei/shoujo manga that i fell in love with just last night

it’s about how in this world there are nymphes and since there’s this legend that says nymphe wings give you happiness some people became nymphe hunters. in order to protect the nymphe, the a conservation group was created. ren, a guy who looks like a girl, is a nymphe hunter out for vengeance and happens to meet ciel, a conservation member, on a ship. A lot of things happen and they start to travel with each other but both have dark pasts. it’s got a lot of  humor and if only ren were a girl it would e the perfect shoujo ever

the art’s great and the story has colorful characters so read it! you’ll get caught up in the story


Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun


this is a cute shoujo and i can completely relate to the main character so i absolutely love it

it’s about a girl named shizuku who only liked to study but then she meets haru, the infamous student who had a fist fight at the beginning of school and had been absent ever since. when her teacher asks her to deliver some papers to haru, which was the first time she’d seen him, he’d gotten into another fight. Afterwards, he asks if she’s a “spy from the school” and after a weird conversation, he starts treating her like a friend. Then she realizes that he really isn’t as bad as the rumors say he is (not that she cares that much anyways) and the story just follows their friendship and how she starts to like him and a bunch of other stuff happens.

if you’re wondering about the cover of the first book, it is just a regular shoujo and the whole collar thing is just a figurative and symbolic thing. there’s lost of humor, the art is great, and you’ll fall in love with the characters

anyways, i love the story and it gets updated every 1-3 weeks which is great so if you’re not desperately to finish all your winter break homework like i am, read it


Taiyou no Ie


this is a really cute and sad shoujo so if you don’t want to cry your eyes out then laugh because mao has such a cute character, skip this one.

the story follows mao and when she was younger, her parents hadn’t gotten along and divorced so the only place she was happy was when she was with the Nakamura family. One day, the parents of the Nakamura family passed away in an accident so all the siblings had to move to stay with other relatives. (i hate stories like that! *natsume yuujinchou*) now she’s in high school and one of the Nakamura siblings, Hiro, is now an office worker (?) and when he dad remarries, she decides to stay with Hiro and it gets really cute and it’s a good  read.

all the other works by Taamo are really good to so read them too! here’s a list:

Wagahai wa Yome de Aru

Shoujo no Melancholy

Onegai, Sensei

Koi Tsukiyo no Himegoto
