    Default Recommendation: more like this stuff

    Not counting continuing reads as chapters come out, the last ten series I've liked were:

    Kimi wa Pet/Tramps Like Us
    Natsume Yuujinchou
    Hiiro no Isu/The Scarlet Chair
    My Girl (Mizu Sahara)
    Usagi Drop
    Angel Manual
    Twin Spica
    Kagen no Tsuki
    Transistor Venus
    Hush (Ji-Un Yoon)

    Given these things I've been enjoying lately, what should look for next?

    Oh, forgot that I also liked Ji-Un Yoon's Excel as well, so make that a list of eleven most recent things I've liked.

    I didn't think I was reading that obscurely. I mean, two of them are hosted here on ST, and at least two others have been adapted as current/recent anime series. Admittedly, only one's licensed, but still.

    (ETA: I should start a thread comparing Yotsuba&!, My Girl, Aishiteruze Baby, and Usagi Drop, they being shounen/seinen/shoujo/josei flips on the same premise -- and so are all completely different.)

    If it's any help in calibrating, I today bounced off two manhwa: Ice Kiss and Cynical Orange.

    Further triangulation: I just snorked down Mademoiselle Butterfly and Akuma to Dulce. Need more like this stuff, STAT.

    (Hmm -- Ghost Only looks promising, based on the first chapter.)

    Ah, yes, Ghost Only is the stuff. More like this, please.

    Anyone?

    Hmmm, if you liked these works I recommend looking into the mangaka's other works. I particularly like Yumeka Sumomo (or her other penname Mizu Sahara) but watch out. Most of her works are BL, (and two of them have been licensed by Juné)

    I also very much like Nana by Ai Yazawa (also created Kagen no Tsuki) and Paradise Kiss was also good. Other works by her (but maybe less entertaining for you, not sure) are Tenshi nanka Ja nai and Gokinjo Monogatari

    I've read as much of Sahara/Sumomo and Yazawa (and her friends Yoshizumi/Obana/Mizusawa) as I can get my hands on -- and, in fact, that's how I stumbled upon Kagen no Tsuki. I prefer the Sahara stories to the Sumomo stories, not so much for the BL content of the latter as the conventions of that genre tend to bore me. I like Nana and Tenshi Nanka Ja nai a lot (he said by way of understatement) but bounced off Paradise Kiss and Gokinjo Monogatari.

    Any other suggestions?

    Hmmm...

    There's this one I've started on recently, called "Sand chronicles" in English (licensed by Viz) and "Sunadokei" in Japanese. It kind of falls in the same category as Nana. There's also "Bokura ga ita" but this one hasn't been scanlated for a long while now.

    Mari Okazaki's works might appeal to you. Some of her works are scanlated by ShoujoMagic. Her art might take some getting used to though. Under the Dapple Shade is good as well (though this one is not scanlated by SM)

    On a sidenote, there's also another manga by Midorikawa Yuki called "Hotaru no mori e" I didn't like all the stories, but the first one was nice (but you probably read that one as well, seeing as DV also scanlated this one)

    These are the ones I can list from the top of my head. I'll come back another time, after delving through my manga archive, to see what else I can recommend to you (I'm mostly basing this on my own preference because the most of stories you listed are stories that I like)
