    A Thousand Years of Snow didn't so much finish as stop. I can see why the mangaka wants to write more, but I'm not sure I'm interested enough to read it.

    The obvious companion manga to Aria is Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou, seeing how they're both peaceful futuristic slice-of-life with hints of shoujo-ai. Even if you've read it before, rereading is worth it.

    I think anything by Shimaki Ako is pretty fluffy. The romance is really cute in her works. I've just started reading Tonari no Shugoshin and I couldn't believe how heartwarming the first two chapters were. If you'd like something similar to the movie A Walk to Remember you may want to try Mucha Kucha Daisuki although prepare for some major drama.

    Maki Yoko is also one of my favorite mangakas. You should try to read all of her works, I enjoyed them all. My personal favorite is Taranta Ranta; Hikaru is just such a cute protagonist!

    Although I don't like Yuu Watase's works that much, she did have a good one called Imadoki!, you may have read it already though. That's the only one I liked by her.

    Anything by Matsumoto Tomo I think is a masterpiece. Beauty is the Beast is a great one by her and the protagonist is very funny .

    If you liked Hana Kimi you may want to try out Girl Got Game / Power!. It has a very similar storyline but I didn't enjoy it as much.

    It may not be too fluffy, but Vampire Knight by Matsuri Hino is quite popular right now. The story is interesting, great art, and there are vampires included with the package.

    Nana Haruta is also one of my favorites. You may want to check out Saboten no Himitsu, it's very lighthearted. Also, there was a oneshot called Okosama Brat that was good.

    -I remember reading this manga a long time ago called Sakuragaoka Angels and I'm sure I liked it.
    -Arina Tanemura has a oneshot out called Shoujo Eve Ringo Jikake no 24 ji that was pretty good.
    -Miki Aihara's oneshot 10 Days is pretty cute. It was in an anthology called Sweet II: Embrace Me 'Til I Break.
    -By the mangaka of Special is You're My Girlfriend which is pretty darn awesome.

    Okay, read through Beauty Pop and Skip Beat! Thanks so much for recommending them! Beauty Pop reminds me of Prince of Tennis, for some strange reason. The attitudes and history of the main characters are pretty similar, aren't they? But yeah, at other times it reminds me of Ouran High. Excellent entertainment.

    Skip Beat! is exactly what I needed. However, it has proved to me that scanlation quality DOES make a huge difference. I once tried to read the first chapter, but the scanlations I got were so crappy that I discarded it straightaway. What a mistake! This series is funnier than Tokyo Crazy Paradise. Nearly burst out laughing half a dozen times (do you know how hard it is to choke down laughter in a public library?). I can see why people recommend it as one of the top shoujo comedies around. It's brilliant! Am definitely going to follow this.

    Beauty Pop reminds me more of Love Monster than Prince of Tennis.

    No, I can't explain that.

    Read Safe Again Today and They Too Love. Both of them are pleasant stories. Not entirely gripping and must-read-or-die series, but not a waste of time either. Pleasant and enjoyable is about right. They Too Love reminds me of Imadoki, for some reason. I think it's because some of the characters are the same archetypes. The opening was pretty funny, though. Too bad the manhwa-ka stopped producing. It would have been nice to read more. Safe Again Today as well. It just started getting interesting, with the Aridun Incident coming up.

    Hmm... what next, I wonder?

    Good, yes, but fits only one word of "light-hearted shoujo comedy/romance."

    Yeah. Many things may be good, but not all things are suitable. I've been deliberately avoiding Bitter Virgin ever since I heard of it. Not my cup of tea.
