    Default Looking for manga recommendations please!

    Hi! I'm hoping someone would be able to recommend some manga for me to read as I seem to have hit a bit of a dry spell lately and haven't managed to find and interesting manga lately.

    My two favorite series of all time are: Fruits Basket and Dramacon. I would really appreciate it if someone could recommend a series with a similar type of humor.

    Some other favorite series of mine are:
    One Piece
    Bleach
    Naruto
    D.Gray-man
    07-ghost
    Katekyo Hitman Reborn
    xxxholic
    Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles
    Soul Eater
    Eyeshield 21
    Kekkaishi
    Fairy Tail

    I also like reading yaoi and shounen-ai. I don't have any favorites in those categories though.

    Any help would be very much appreciated.

    For series with a sense of humor like Fruits Basket and Doraemon, I suggest:

    Pearl Pink
    Penguin Brothers
    Nodame Cantabile
    Living Game
    Yotsuba&!

    (That's two shoujo, and one each josei, seinen, and shounen, so shading from "like FB" to more "like D".)
    Today is always the most enjoyable day. Just ask Yotsuba.

    Sounds like a female who happens to also like reading shounen manga with bishounen characters in them. Digi would probably be the best person to recommend stuff, since she has similar tastes, but anyway...

    Try some of the following series:
    - Rurouni Kenshin (samurai assassin tries to forget his past and live life simply when he meets the daughter of a kendo dojo, but characters and enemies from his past keep on interrupting their lives. Like Naruto, Bleach and One Piece, only better.)

    - Ouran High School Host Club (poor girl who wants to become a lawyer gets sucked into a group of rich boys who are setting up a host club for rich girls. Each of the guys has their own charm and appeal. Full of comedic situations, bishounen, and a touch of romance. Think Fruits Basket without the angst.)

    - School Rumble (recommended with a caveat - don't expect a conclusive ending. An ordinary high school girl falls in love with the blandest, most boring guy in her class, and would do anything to confess her love. At the same time, the school's most notorious delinquent falls in love with her, and would do anything to confess his love. The resulting hijinks gradually draws in family, friends and schoolmates into an all-out battle for love. Very high comedy values, with some nice romantic scenes too.)

    -Dizzy-
    Manga Genre Focus: Romance, Comedy, Slice-of-life. Primarily shounen, then seinen and shoujo.

    Itsumo Misora
    Yankee-kun to Megane-chan
    seto no hanayome
    Otaku no Musume
    Sayonara Zetsubo Sensei
