Hey, I've been following your shoujo recs and I like it. |Thank you very much. I really like Ao Haru Ride, Strobe Edge, Bokura Ga Ita, Sprout, Orange, Kimi Ni Todoke kind of genre and artwork, can you recommend me some stuff similar to those stories? Preferably completed
Sorry, I completely forgot to reply to this!
Those are the type of manga that I would usually refer to as general shoujo recs. They are extremely popular and well known, and they generally fall into the slice of life category/ school life.
I would go through the general shoujo recs here first.
From your list, the ones that I would personally suggest are Kamisama Hajimemashite, Dengeki Daisy (I think this JUST completed), Hana kun to Koisuru Watashi (this one is actually a really fun read. Kind of like Bokura Ga Ita. It updates regularly as well), Taiyou No Ie, Maid Sama! (You'll probably like it if you liked Kimi Ni Todoke, it's got a similar sense of humour), Koukou Debut (YASSSSS @ Classic), Koizura (similar to Bokura Ga Ita), Lovely Complex (shoujo rom-com dream stuff), Otomen (this is from a guy's pov but it is OH so Shoujo). Sora Log (it's cheesy but it is good), Saiunkoko Monogatari (historical manga but the art is amazing as is the story), Hibi Chouchou (GORGOUS+ similar story to Kimi Ni Todoke).
But yeah, take a look through the list yourself, see which artwork/ story summary appeals to you and go for it!
I'll look through myanimelist as well
-14 sai no Koi (good art, romantic, school life)
-Hirunaka no Ryusei (I guarantee you'll LOVE it. It's definitely down your alley. It's completed as well)
- Heroine Shikkaku OR Sensei Kunshu (Heroine is completed and it is good)
-Aruitou (It's a good one that I'm currently reading. A little metaphysical for some, but it's solid. By the same author of Parfait Tic)
-Boku to Kimi to de niji ni Naru (probably spelt that wrong. I actually REALLY like this one, I've been meaning to rec it for a while now. The art is gorgeous and the story is nice as well)
- Butter!!! (Art is a little different, but I actually love this series. Very slice of life and realistic)
- Cafe-Cafe (It's a cute story that's coming along well)
- Cheerful days (I've recced this before)
-Cheese in teh trap (YEASSS. You would like this)
-Hana to Rakurai (Very similar to what you're looking for. Art is awesome as well)
- Honey (This is another very popular shoujo in Japan. It's got the whole sweet first love thing going on)
-Horimiya (Similar rom-com stuff + pretty art)
-Koisuru Harinezumi (it's pretty cute)
-Ore Monogatari!! (One of my favorite manga currently serializing. Artsyle is similar to Orange)
-ReCollection (Same author as Orange)
-Stand Up! (Great slice of life with STUNNNIIINNNGG art) also try Yajirobee (aka A Balancing Toy) OR Tomodachi Ijou
-Yumemiru Taiyou (same author as Orange, similar art and vibe)
These are my recommendations based on my taste, but your's may be completely different!
Here is myanimelist. In it is listed all teh manga I've read so far (or most of tehm at least). Click on the manga that you previously enjoyed like Kimi Ni Todoke or that you want to know more about for recommendations based on that manga or for the summary.
Hope this helps!
