    Lol... I was wondering what genre "LF" was, and then I realised it was short for "Looking For". But anyway, aha! Another poster asking about my favourite specialty! Hmm... where to start, where to start... it looks like you're okay with both shounen and shoujo romantic comedies, and are fine with H content, so I'll recommend a mixture of everything.

    Start with I''s. Shounen love drama with a fair amount of fanservice. Ichitaka has always been in love with his classmate, Iori, but has never confessed his feelings. When chance puts them together for a class assignment, he struggles to take advantage of this opportunity. However, before he could do it, his old childhood girl friend Itsuki comes back and moves into Ichitaka's house for a while. When Iori sees them, she misunderstands their relationship. In the meanwhile, Itsuki has grown into a beautiful girl in the time she has been away. What will Ichitaka do? Will he choose the lively childhood friend, or the beautiful classmate? And what happens when even more girls whose names start with 'I' get involved?

    If you liked the insanity of Love Collage and Love Hina, you'll definitely enjoy School Rumble. Tsukamoto Tenma, an average high school girl, is in love with her classmate Karasuma Ooji and is struggling to confess her feelings. Harima Kenji, a high school delinquent, is in love with Tsukamoto Tenma and trying to confess his feelings! As they plot and plan all sorts of ridiculous tactics to try and get closer to the person they like, their friends, family, schoolmates, and even complete strangers get dragged into the mix. It's a love comedy of epic proportions with likeable characters and tangled relationships not seen since Ranma 1/2.

    Moving on to gentler pieces, I would suggest Salad Days, an anthology of short love stories set in high school. While most of them are standalone, there are a few characters that make repeat appearances, and eventually even a main couple. Laughter, sadness, undying loyalty, bittersweet regret, and the purest of sweet romance - Salad Days captures all of the emotions linked with high school love and serves it to you one little bit at a time... as light and fresh as... well, a salad.

    Also continuing in the trend of gentle romances, try Rough by Mitsuru Adachi. Yamato Keisuke and Ninomiya Ami belong to families who are eternal rivals in the confectionery business. Keisuke is the national junior high bronze medalist for freestyle swimming, and Ami is a talented beginner at high-diving. When they enter the same high school, sparks start to fly - both in the classroom and at the swimming pool. But as they work together to overcome challenges in their respective fields, what began as mutual animosity grows into respect, friendship - and maybe something more.

    Now, off from shounen romances and onto to shoujo ones. Of course, one of the greatest and most well-known shoujo romance dramas is Hana Yori Dango. Makino Tsukushi is an average middle-class girl attending a high school for the elite rich. All she wanted to do was to remain unnoticed and quickly pass through her high school life, avoiding trouble. But when circumstances bring her into contact with the F4, a quartet of the school's richest boys who like to bully people, she loses her temper and strikes out at Doumyoji Tsukasa, the leader of the F4. Immediately, the bullying starts, and Tsukushi is determined to fight them with all the endurance of her middle-class background. Little did she expect that Doumyoji would fall in love with her, or what trouble that would cause.

    For more lighthearted comedy with hints of romance, try Host Club (also known as Ouran High School Host Club). Fujioka Haruhi is a scholarship student at the prestigious Ouran High, where there are rich kids who have little to no inkling of how ordinary people live. One day, she walks into a mysterious ballroom and comes across a group of young men who will change her life - the Host Club. Led by Suou Tamaki, they exist for the sole reason of entertaining the female students, and flirting with them as appropriate. When Haruhi breaks a vase due to her surprise, she immediately comes into debt and has to work for the remainder of her high school years as a member of the Host Club to repay her debt. Oh, and did I mention that Haruhi looks and dresses like a boy?

    For something a little gentler, look out for Watase Yuu's Imadoki. Yamazaki Tanpopo, on the day before her transfer to a new high school, crashes into an interesting boy who seems to share her love for flowers and gardening. Glad that she has found a new friend, Tanpopo cheerfully enters high school, only to find that the boy she saw yesterday seemed to have changed completely into a cold-hearted, flower-hating person... who also refuses to acknowledge her. Feeling indignant, she determinedly announces to the whole school that she will make him acknowledge her as his friend no matter what it takes, making her the target of many laughs and a few cruel acts. But as she perseveres, things change and a new Gardening Club is created, attracting friends one by one to Tanpopo's new high school life.

    And lastly, to round off, another shounen series: Open Sesame. Danjou Yamato leaves his island hometown to enter a new high school in Tokyo. However, he is shocked and surprised to find that 90% of the students are girls due to the school just turning co-ed, and they use the power of the majority to order the boys around. They are led by the four queens of the school - star students who all happen to be in his class. But Mogami Maki, the leader of the four queens, shares a secret past with Yamato - a secret that he himself seems to have forgotten.

    ...

    Well, that would do for starters. Of course, this is just the tip of the iceberg, and there are many many more high school stories left to read! But go through these first and see what you think.

    Yeah, looking at the series you seem to have liked in your past posts, it probably would. (On a side note, you should look into any manga that coolerimmortal recommends. Your tastes and his are pretty similar... and the complete opposite of mine. :P)

    Dizz, once again, covers just about everything I'd recommend, and with better descriptions. The only two I'd add to his list are:

    Penguin Brothers - New student enters a high school where everyone's divided into white and black factions, based on which uniform they wear, except for a few greys stuck in the middle -- so she decides start a revolution in color culture.

    Koukou Debut - Upon entering high school, Haruna discovers that the intensity she applies to everything, which worked well at becoming a star softball pitcher, doesn't work well when trying to get a boyfriend -- where there is such a thing as trying too hard.

    O_o. I read like the first 2 volumes. The pacing is so shitty, it took forever to find out why the girl was such a bitch. And all the shit she kept doin along with the art of the girls irked me. I was just like fuck it, this is retarded.

    Read I"s, as was previously suggested.

    GTO is by far the best high school series out there. Also check out Shonan Junai Gumi.

    Just to warn you, though, aside from GTO, there isn't too much quality to be found in the old high school genre. A couple of years ago I was hooked on those series, so I read Koroshiya Ichi, and that fixed my problem.
