What is THE best romance manga ever?
Posted 27 November 2006 - 08:58 AM
They both have their sweet moments, however, I found Ichigo 100% to be sweeter overall, whereas I"s seemed to be more realistic and catching of the feeling of attraction and crushes.
An interesting note is that Ichigo 100% is drawn by a female mangaka whereas I"s is drawn by a male mangaka.
I guess this is maybe why the male protagonist's feelings are better conveyed in I"s.
Ultimately I can't really choose.
I haven't finished Ichigo 100% completely, but for me, I"s is a better romance manga, while Ichigo 100% is a bit more fun to read.

If you want romance, go shoujo.

well... i'd say all the Yuu Watase mangas (fushigi yugi) are very good and the romance is awesome.. beside romance, theres a story too.. its hard to combine both and make them something out of it...
I agree. FY is one of my all time favorite; romance, fantasy, school, fighting, ancient...everything in one pack!! Also, so many likable characters, even some of the evil guys are hard to hate I also like some other mangas by Yuu Watase too.
My other favorite romance mangas are Marmalade Boy (cute) and Ranma (funny).

Hot Gimmick, overall great plot, really unexpected things that happen.. i loved reading it x] Soo much drama, too XD
Kare First Love is your average romance manga.. well it started out pretty different from others, but it ended quite the same.. the artwork is very good though, very beautiful ^^
Absolute Boyfriend is humourous, but still has meaning XD its soo good, one of those manga that makes you want to be the main chara .. the whole idea of it is silly and interesting, its fun to read .
Aishiteruze baby, we all see it as one of those really cute series, but theres actually romance in it, between kippei and kokoro.. theres also some sad parts with that one runaway girl, overall i loved it.
Hana Yori Dango, better known as meteor garden from the taiwanese drama. i watched the drama first, goodness i kept renting the dvds one after another, LOL. hmm i wouldnt say this to be an average romance manga, it goes on for a really long time. events happen one after another, you just want to keep reading on and on ^^
I really liked Hana Kimi when I read the first bunch of volumes, i read the scanlations, but there was a chapter left out or something, and i got very confused.. idk, after that it got boring to me x__x i think it was around chapter 11x...
omg, i think so too>__> i didnt even like those series i watched the special for I's and read the 1st pat of the manga, i was like wow horniness.. for ichigo 100%, i watched the first few episodes of the anime, i dont even remember what happend but i know i stopped because it was either boring or had horny parts. these kind of "romance" anime are just for guys to look at and go oOoO nice tits or w/e; not to offend the thread starter or anything.
I seriously think that I's and Ichigo 100% aimed more toward shounen then shoujo, so when compare it with other manga... it's not even comparable.
If you want romance, go shoujo.

I love Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles and XXXholic!
Lovely art and Brilliant story!
I'm not sure Tsubasa and xxxHOLIC are really romance (there should definitely be more in tsubasa!!!) but yup, I love the story too!!... ;;; but anyway.... my favourite(s) would be:
Yuu Watase's works (Imadoki!, Absolute Boyfriend, Alice 19th... best romance being Imadoki!)
Arina Tanemura's works (Full Moon wo Sagashite!! And Shinshi Doumei Cross >_<)
Yeah... go shoujo, peeps!!
Posted 23 April 2007 - 03:58 PM
I swear to you it is one of the best Shoujo romance manga that i have ever read
I love all the mangas by Mayu Shinjo!
Hotgimmick is not bad too...
The sypnosis is not that great, but the manga/anime is really good and all the books by that mangaka
yup these are what i highly recommend for Shojo mangas... aka girl ficks.. romance stuff...
Posted 23 April 2007 - 04:03 PM
but so far i really like the fluffy romance ones like:
i wont say that escaflowne is one but then i really like it all the same
angel sancturay is the manga of all manga's. its my holy bible and i can care less that its incest at the moment since i didn't know how to read it back then lol i was so drawn into the art...it was amazing...but now i know. i take it quite seriously...
Hana kimi, i have that...but then its short.
there is another one i dont remember the name to but its quite sweet, when i get the english name i would come back here...
flower and dream mangas are almost always my favorite.
Posted 24 April 2007 - 08:06 AM
Fruits Basket. Oh man this series is so good, definitely in my top 3. Who cares if there's some slight incest, the love stories are sweet and cute and sad and tragic and all kinds of good stuff.
Mars. Damn good series. Kira and Rei had a great relationship and it seemed very real. Plus they actually grew and matured and helped each other through so much, how can you not love this series?
NANA. Well, there's tons of romance in this series, but mostly through dysfunctional relationships. However, this is definitely in my top 3 because I LOVE everything about it: story, characterization, art....Ai Yazawa is awesome.
Host Club. The other one in my top 3. So far it's not quite a love story, but you see the various relationships progressing and turning into something more. I'm very interested to see what Bisco Hatori's gonna do with this series.
Hana Kimi. So good! I hear they're making a J-drama out of this, and if so, I can't wait to watch it.
Hana Yori Dango. I read the manga first and really liked it, although it was a bit long and tended to drag now and then. Still a good read and I LOVE the Jdrama. <3 Shun Oguri/Rui.
Snow Drop. Korean manwha, very tragic and Romeo and Juliet-esque, but it has a happy ending.
Hm, if I remember anymore, I'll post it here. Oh, and no offense to anyone here, but I could not stand Hot Gimmick. Ugh, I couldn't even finish the series because the main character was pissing me off so much. Their relationship was so crazy dysfunctional! Not sweet at all!

I also started to read Ichigo 100% once, but I stopped somewhere inbetween. If you say it's good then I consider reading it again ^.~
I also really like "The Cherry Project". i read it recently and it's really cute >_<
"Taranta Ranta" is also one of my favourites. Unfortunately it is so short T_T
"Mars" too, it's such a sweet story. Also sad, but the story is just so touching Q_Q
Posted 15 May 2007 - 10:58 PM
Well def. in FIRST place is Mars!! I LOVE the manga SO much that I didn't even wanted to see the TW series in fear that I would start comparing them! ' I really like this manga cause this is the FIRST manga that I've ever brought!! =D Also, I LOVE the ART that Fuyumi Soryo drew...AMAZING! And I'm def. forgetting to mention the AWESOME storyline!!! How can anyone NOT get hooked?! lol Rei and Kira is TRUELY star-crossed lovers! ^^
And then NEXT in line is all the mangas by Yūu Watase!! It was actually Fushigi Yugi that got me STARTED in reading mangas!!! hehe, I LOVE these series so freaken much because I liked how it took place in ancient China and the storyline is so freaken goood! ^^ And then I moved on to Ayashi no Ceres which is ANOTHER freaken AWESOME manga! =D I LOVE Toya the MOST and this manga is SIMPLY a MUST-READ! Alice 19th and Imadoki! are def. NEXT on my list! ^_____^ hehe, the ONE thing that I LOVE about Yuu Watase is that she's such an freaken AMAZING drawer and I always end up falling in LOVE with her male characters and all her storylines are so original!!!!!
Other manga that was good are Fruit Basket (if that really counts lol) and Hana Kimi!!

If I like Absolute Boyfriend, then what else would you recommend that's as sweet, romantic, funny and sexy?

HanaKimi was entertaining, but it seemed more like a sitcom than romance...

And Princess is a good romance manhwa, though it's quite long. Still ongoing.

1. hana yori dango--absolutely my favorite manga of all time.. its very romantic/heartwarming/cute/funny/sad/..i can go on and on.. the relationship btw tsukushi and tsukasa is really something, and you just keep rooting for them to be together...
2. Mars-also very good.. romantic and sad--ray and kira are perfect--badboy and a goodgirl--what a match!!!
Posted 29 November 2007 - 10:19 PM
I can't believe no one mentioned my favourite romance manga: Maison Ikkoku.
It's great, if a bit old. Funny and heartwarming.
"She burns with jealousy, leaps to conclusions, cries and turns to ice, but when she laughs.... The world is mine" - Yusaku Godai
I really recommend it to anyone interested in romance mangas.
The other romance manga I've read is Ichigo100% (though it's more like a harem-manga), which has probably the cutest drawn girls ever. It's a little ecchi (pervy), but it fits with the story. Teenage boys ARE pervy.
I've also read Love Hina, which was... well, it was good, but not great. Had some great moments, but overall it wasn't even near Maison Ikkoku, or even Ichigo100%.
Those are the only mangas that were categorized as romance mangas that I've read, though there's a little romance in every manga.

And my most favourite is I"S because it explains really well how most guys think. I also like ichigo100% a lot even though it was less serious and (because there were three girs) even for te reader it was hard to choose(personally I think: TSUKASA <3 but also kitaooji.....and toujo last).
Suzuka was prety good too(hated the ending). and ofcourse CLAMP stuff like CHOBITS.
I"S all the way.
Posted 24 July 2008 - 04:25 AM
I''S<--First Manga that i've read
It's really cute, Good Story too, though somehow, i find it redudant.. If you just look at the drawings, then naturally you'll think its just pervy.. but then again..
I still love it..
And i dont recommend comparing the Anime to Manga...
Can't Say so much about this.. What I like about this is its ending.. 'cause from the start
I thought Tsukino would really be the best one.. And it ended the way i anticipated it..
(Though, others might say Toujo, Kitaoji... would be better)
The Story is good too 'cause in the later part.. it shows how they became responsible and mature persons... it's not just all about the pervy stuffs
Cute---- Story is good too.. taking Care of Yuzuyu(A cute little girl) seems to have a positive effect on anyone.. I wonder if it would have an effect on me..
Anyway.. What i liked about this one is how the manga artist delivered the story using yuzuyu(So cute) as the bridge for almost everything..
The lovestory bet. kippei and kokoro is kinda cute too.. coz kokoro is like the serious type of girl which.. <omitted explanations>... many guys would like
Kare First Love
Some kind of Mature Love Story, though the protagonist are young..... i think it's their culture.. i dont know.. just love the story too.. and the heartbreaking scenes.. Y_Y
This one's great too.. though it is just short and the story doesn't add so much romance, heart touching scenes (i think it's in ecchi category), the girl in this one looks like toujo aya, oh, and did i mention it's short...
Haven't seen this one? Hmm... It's Good but i lacks something.. I can't seem to find out what..
Good, the guy here looks like L of Deathnote, The girl is cute.. Short but cute and nice story..
Honestly, i have read quite a few.. though cant put them all here.. this are just according to what i like more.. and to mention they were the only few that i have already finished reading..
Gacha Gacha - Capsule
Please.. Share more... Thanks..
And Also the new ones,, and where can i get them..
More power to you,, all.. ^^

Beast Master - Soft comedy, sweet, innocent pure love.
Ouran High School - Very funny! Refreshing and full of mocking jokes. A lovely romantic comedy that is also REVERSE HAREM - Need I say more? ;-)
Red River - action packed, fictional history, Bishounen, very romantic and well plotted. Good art too!

Akuma De Sourou is undoubtedly one of the best mangas ever. It was adapted into a TW drama called 'Devil Beside You' but is definitely much more better than the drama.
Itazura na Kiss was pretty good too. I didn't really like it much. Kotoko's love for a guy that treats her so coldly is beyond me but it still had it's sweet moments nevertheless. Especially the time when he kissed while she was sleeping under the tree & lots more. I guess I was always more of a supporter of KotokoxNakamura & KotokoxKeita but that's just my preferences. All-in-all, the manga was pretty good.
Zettai Kareshi was good too. Though I found the starting a little too weird, I began liking it eventually. Riiko wasn't really the best of heroines that I've known but she was realistic enough. Night was the perfect guy but oh well............Soshi was pretty good for her too. The ending though, was what I really liked about this manga. Guess I've always been more fonder of sad endings.
Anyway, I don't really read a lot of manga so I'm not much of an expert on the topic. I hope you like these
