I need help looking for the name of a manga I read 4-5 years ago, but I cannot post a new topic. I felt it might fit in this one because the manga had romance, but it might be classified as ecchi due to questionable scenes.


That is all I know about the plot, if it jogs any memories that would be so helpful.

I hope I am not breaking the rules by posting here, but this has been nagging me so bad.

That sounds a lot like one of the major plot-lines from ef: Tale of Melodies (although not exactly) -- I know that one started as a VN and had an anime, but I don't know about any manga adaptations.

The only other hint I can offer is that it sounds like a pretty dark josei manga, which tend to have a lot of handsome princely types, forbidden romance, and sexually aggressive men.

Thanks for your help anyways, and I might give that a watch, always looking for new animes.
I figured out what it was this morning, the name was Desire Climax. I got parts of the plot a bit off, but my memory is pretty bad. I'm shocked though because I think Desire Climax falls under shoujo.

The difference between shoujo-smut and josei is pretty thin, but I'm glad that you remembered it.

If you watch ef, Tale of Memories is the first season, Tale of Melodies the second. I love Memories, but find Melodies a bit too dark for my taste--but if you like Desire Climax, you probably won't have that problem.

Emma: A Victorian Romance and Princess Jellyfish are gold. I've also been working through Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou on here, its gross/cute and the characters feel relate-able (to me anyway)

Thanks for the list! I've read 3 of them already and were amazing.
If you know about another Seinen ones would be awesome.

Other good Seinen:

Comedic/Light Hearted
-------------------------------
Ashita Dorobou
Comic Studio
Densha Otoko
Koibana Onsen (borderline H)
Oh My Sweet Alien
Orange Yane no Chiisana Ie
Oretama (AKA My Balls)
Servant x Service
Sore wa Totsuzen (collection of shorts)


Darker or more serious
-----------------------------------
Honeymoon Salad
IO
Molester Man (no, it's not actually about a Molester--just a guy who gets mistaken for one)
Koharu no Hibi
Koi Kaze (incest)
Little Girl -- She is Young (webtoon, borderline H)
Nozoki Ana (borderline H)

If you want really dark, you can also try Ciguetera or Sundome--both are really good at what they do, but both were a bit too messed up for my taste.

Say I Love You.. 18 volumes of actual relationship romance. None of that crap where they never even kiss, it's a realistic romance with this, that and even the other thing. But it's not ecchi. It's a serious romance ~
It even has a really good anime adaption.

I'm surprised no one else is recommending it!? Maybe the seriousness and no ecchi is boring for the guys?

In my case, it's not boring at all, and I like it a lot, but I tend not to recommend incomplete manga (at least last time I checked, it was nearing its completion but hadn't hit it yet). I've read too many that start well only to either run themselves off the rails completely (Love Attack) or had some ambiguous ending that left me unsatisfied (Love Roma). That's also why I didn't mention Kimi ni Todoke or Jitsu wa Watashi wa.
