hi. I'm fed up with picking random mangas and then dropping them after few chapters :3 .. i seek something original, with an intrersting, resonable plot, something about a MATURE love between people. the love doesn't have to be a main subject of the manga, but I want it to be there ^^. (favourites - NANA, ParadiseKiss)

If anyone could recommend me something good I'd be truly happy :)

but please, look at my 'dropped' list (http://myanimelist.net/mangalist/jumikao )and don't give me mangas similar to those ;)

I don't want to read about the pure innocent high school love, where it takes about 5 chapters for the main heroes to shake hands, and another few to kiss :P. on the other hand, please don't suggest me sex-packed one shots, unless they are really good.

one more thing - no yaoi please :P

You might enjoy reading Ai Yori Aoshi. It has a lot of topless nudity, but it has a very good story and is an awesome read.

Try Deep Love - Ayu no Monogatari. Though, as a romance it doesn't really have much, the story is really dramatic and mature. It's also a short read.

Hmm, I'll be keeping an eye on this thread..

Emma and Maison Ikkoku are both wonderful, imo.

Definitely seconded.

If you liked NANA and Parakiss, give some other Ai Yazawa manga a shot (Gokinjo Monogatari, Tenshi Nanka Janai).

I think you'd like Sand Chronicles -- it starts out pure and innocent but gets mature very quickly. Also check out Koibana and Shingo + Masaki.

I'm surprised no one suggested Tramps Like Us (japanese name Kimi wa Petto. "You are My Pet".)

all of the characters are adults, the art is definately josei, the story is mature with difficult situations that happen IRL too.

I thought Ohikkoshi was nice. (side/mini/whatever story Luncheon of Tears Diary is genius)

Erica Sakurazawa series are quite mature. Mostly short stories though but that way you don't have to commit too much time. ;)

Nothing but Loving You is a good Erica Sakurazawa title to start with. The art is very minimalistic, a lot of white space but the subject matter is definitely adult/mature.

I second this recommendation. It is true that romance is a little subtle in this manga, this manga is full of love when you think about it. It's truly a wonderful manga and it made me cry so darn hard! There's a whole series of Deep Love. If you like Deep Love - Ayu no Monogatari then you'll definitely enjoy the others too.
