    (I don't know how many of these have a manga version of them though, some may not. As I only watch anime, thus far, except for reading the Claymore manga, hehe)

    there's quite a lot of these (sad/tragic pasts + most of the other stuff you listed)... I'll try to list as many as I can off the top of my head, but most will be a bit more on the dark side, and "not so nice" however. And most of them aren't even close to Gakuen Ouji or Yozakur Quartet unfortunately...

    well, this might be the closest (of what I read/looked up about the two you mentioned, as I haven't read either of them, lol): Vampire Knight and the runner-up Jyu Oh Sei

    You might like also (if I may be so bold as to try to guess what you'd like lol): Fullmetal Alchemist, Full Metal Panic, and/or Spice and Wolf.

    here's the rest (the full list) that have the sad/tragic pasts and much of your other listed stuff (though they are a wide variety, not all are fantasy, such as quite a bit of Sci-Fi ones)

    Claymore, Blood+, Code Geass, Rideback, Death Note, Hellsing Ultimate, Black Lagoon, Big O, Berserk, Fullmetal Alchemist, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Jyu Oh Sei, Noein, Rurouni Kenshin, Seirei no Moribito, Tenjou Tenge, Trinity Blood, Wolf's Rain, Naruto, Full Metal Panic, Spirited Away, Cassern Sins, Shikabane Hime, Solty Rei, Soul Taker, Birdy the Mighty: Decode, Spice and Wolf, Vampire Knight,

    CLAYMORE is what you're looking for then, lol

    Blood+ also isn't bad too

    Fullmetal Alchemist is loved by many

    (except none of these are like Gakuen Ouji or Yozakur Quartet, but if you don't mind the types that Claymore or Blood+ or Fulmetal Alchemist are, they're really good !!! Many girls like them !!!)

    see my recommend thread here, if you want to look at Claymore or Blood+ (I don't ahve the trailers yet for Blood+, I'll have them up sometime today though):

    Re: The “looking for” manga thread

    Sorry if this is the wrong place to ask this question, but I was wondering what manga this page is from:

    http://30.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lq...2olgo1_500.jpg

    Warning: It's bloody.
    If it's the wrong place, though, could you redirect me? Heh.

    Re: The “looking for” manga thread

    I'm looking for a shojo that has a down-to-earth feel. A josei would work fine too. I'll be happy to read something romantic, funny, fresh and serious, something with character development. I'm not in the mood for something depressing. I like it when the story doesn't concentrate too much on the main character. I really enjoy Skip Beat, I love the cuteness in Kimi ni Todoke, I love Nana. It would be best if the series is completed, but ongoing would be fine too. Anime-only works as well.

    here's some you might like (though most are not shojo/josei, but close to it - imo anyways), but I don't know shojo nor josei very well, as I'm not usually into them.

    (I only read Claymore manga thus far, so I don't know if all of these below have mangas of them or if they do how good they are, as the ones below, I've seen the animes of them only)

    ouran highschool host club
    chuu-bra
    vampire knight
    asobi ni iku yo
    spice and wolf
    jyu Oh sei
    black butler
    rosario vampire
    the sacred blacksmith
    full metal panic
    school rumble

    that's it for now that I can recall at the moment, I'll try to look/get some more for you too later on

    Re: The “looking for” manga thread

    Spice and wolf, Black Butler (KuroShitsuji), Rosario Vampire, Full Metal Panic, School rumble, they aren't shoujo. Course, they're good series, not denying that.

    They're all shounen.
    Especially with the stupid ecchiiness of Rosario and School Rumble, it's not similar to Josei. But Spice and Wolf has a really heartwarming romance story, and Black Butler is very popular with most girls for its fashion and stuff... FMP is also a classice.

    But I don't read josei, I have no idea, sorry

    Re: The “looking for” manga thread

    Thanks guys! Some of them I have read/seen or both. I like it how you both said Spice and Wolf. It's my favorite anime and I read the manga when there were only 6 chapters. I have 6 of the novels in Japanese and I'm trying to read them. ^^

    Thanks, but I've already read and watched it. I really liked it! In fact, it's the first manga I've ever read.

    I'd recommend Nodame Cantabile to you.Light and funny with some romance and lots of music.It's a great josei(?xD) and i personally love it and you should love it as well.

    Yeah it's josei...

    Oh yeah, that's right. There was this manga I never knew was josei, but loved it.

    Usagi Drop. Highly recommended.

    Re: The “looking for” manga thread

    I've watched two episodes of the drama of Nodame Cantabile and I liked it really much. I was planning to read the manga anyway, so I might as well read it now. ^^
    I've read Usagi Drop a little and I've dropped it, don't remember why. I'll read that too.
    Thank you guys!

    Re: The “looking for” manga thread

    Good suggestions so far, but allow me to pile on a couple more.

    Lovely Complex - One of my absolute favorites. The main couple has incredible chemistry, lots of humor, highly recommend

    Kuragehime - Hilarious, light-hearted josei. I've heard the anime sticks pretty close to the manga, too, so I'm sure it would be ok if you want to try it in anime form instead.
