Greetings!
I'm looking for manga (or anime) romance with kind-hearted and kind of 'broken' male protagonist who is ignored, hated, bullied and/or disliked by others, especially by girls. All this because of his looks, likes, dislikes, personality or misunderstanding.
If there's one, I would appreciate your help.

(I'm sorry if its not grammatically correct, so don't hate me... )
Thank you and have a nice day!

Thanks anyway

My Little Monster, the male lead is kind of odd and shunned.

Toradora, the main character is misunderstood at the start, though it's clarified fairly early on.

Accel World kind of. Main character is short and fat. Show kind of sucked though.

If I'm reading your requirements correctly, I think I can recommend Mayo Chiki! if you haven't checked it out yet.

Eighth (guy works for an organization to get with a girl but he can't seem to get one cause they tease him with empty promises and work lol)
History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi (guy likes cute girl, gets his butt kicked a lot because he's weak, joins dojo of elite martial artist)
Katekin (guy likes sub teacher but she treats him poorly)
Koko ga Uwasa no El Palacio (guy loses memory because of girl, she keeps him as a pet)
Minamoto-kun Monogatari (guy scarred by girls, want revenge. Mature)
Onidere (comedy about normal guy that has a girlfriend...that is the head of a gang of women that hates men)
Rosario + Vampire (sure the girls love him but the guys want him dead)
She's Gon (guy likes girl but she don't like him; turns out shes a demon trying to stop him from being a hero)
Ubel Blatt (you want bullied? The dude was left for dead after protecting the world from evil)

Not sure if they're what you're looking for but check them out when you have time. I use baka-updates manga: http://www.mangaupdates.com/, on a regular basis to find new stuff so use this to check the list I provided to see if there are ones you find interesting to read.

I'd recommend two. BananaSlamaRama already suggested The Breaker:


So that leaves Holyland, by Kouji Mori:


That last one is seriously brutal, so. You're warned. The Breaker is bleak at times but nothing like this. Both have a token girlfriend figure who wants to be with the protagonist but can't for some reason or another.

In The Breaker it's because the kid wants to protect her; in Holyland it's because he's scared shitless of intimacy.

Holyland's art style took getting used to, but it was worth it. The story is exceptional.

I'd also second this recommendation:

Girl the Wild's


It's a fun series, well worth reading. It's also serious at times, but it'll help balance out the previous two. It doesn't wholly fit with your criteria, though, since the protagonist almost immediately makes friends with three girls.

It's more a manhwa about gender equality in Korean culture, although bullying plays a key role in the protagonist's arc. Also, the official matches in Girls of the Wild's are beautifully rendered and each one gets better.

The protagonist does start off with an intense aversion to women because of his family situation, though.

That's very important to the development of his character to its current point in the story.


All three are stories about empowerment and standing up to take your life back. They just vary in darkness and tone.
