I completely forgot Kaname Chidori.

That also makes me think of Revy from Black Lagoon and Asuka from Evangelion.

I suggest an old Tokyo Pop title called X-Day...one of the male protagonists conspires with other ostracized students to get revenge. It's only 2 volumes and a great read. Good art, lots of drama.

Aku no Hana (anime + manga): "Takao Kasuga receives an F on a math test. But he doesn't even seem to notice because he's too engrossed in surreptitiously reading Beaudelaire's The Flowers of Evil. And the day goes downhill from there. In a moment of weakness, he finds and takes home the gym clothes belonging to sweet, pretty Nanako Saeki on whom he has a major crush. Unfortunately for Takao, there's a witness to the theft: Nakamura, who has a huge chip on her shoulder and a sadistic streak."


Again!! (manga): "Ichimura graduates highschool without having made a single friend due to his appearance and personality. he ends up going back in time to his first day of highschool and tries to make different choices than the first time around."


Tetsugaku Letra (manga): "In middle school, Ichinose Kimitaka taught his friends how to play basketball. Despite his experience with the sport, his friends quickly outmatched him in skill. After an incident brought on by his frustration and jealousy, he was crushed to overhear those same 'friends' discussing how they wished he'd just kill himself. On his way to toss out his special basketball shoes, he met a girl who was just as frustrated, throwing her own dancing shoes away. Tall, with large hands and feet, she had been rejected from her chosen hobby of Spanish dancing. He urged her to give basketball a try, and the two exchanged their shoes instead of throwing them away. As he enters high school, Kimitaka learns that meeting him changed that girl's life for the better, and she is now a happy, social basketball player. Will Kimitaka be able to find the courage to make new friends and pursue his own talents?"


Itoshi no Nina (manga): "One afternoon, Atsushi's best friend, Masa, informs him, "I kidnapped Niina Aota." Niina, whose popular nickname is "Nina", is the girl Masa fell in love with at first sight on the train attending school. The unpopular Atsushi found it unexpected and hard to believe, until he heads over to Masa's apartment and discovers that Nina has really been kidnapped...."

Do a search for "harem" anime.

Angel Densetsu might also qualify as a manga, although the art might take some getting used to. The main character looks absolutely evil (not just thuggish like the kid from Toradora!, but literally demonic), while actually being a genuinely good kid. Over time he makes several friends and the story follows him as he adjusts to a new school.

But along the way he runs into several misunderstandings because of his diabolical appearance.

Most of them are played for laughs to emphasize how ridiculous it is to judge a person by their appearance.


It's also by Norihiro Yagi, the creator/mangaka of Claymore.

Ookiku Furikabutte-


After a falling out with his middle school team, Mihashi enters Nishiura high school with no social skill, a warped opinion of himself, and every intention to quit baseball. The newly formed Nishiura baseball team, however, needs a pitcher, and they welcome him. Most enthusiastic is Abe, a domineering catcher with his own game issues.

And so a battery every bit as complementary as it is dysfunctional is formed. If they can figure out how to work together, they might be the answers to each other's problems-and the team might be able to win.

(credits to myanimelist.net)

Mihashi, the main character, was extremely ignored and bullied for being the main pitcher on a past baseball team, and because of this he has a horrible opinion on himself, his pitching and all his abilities.

It's a great story, regardless of whether you like sports or not. The way the characters progress and change is great, and the friendship is powerful.

The characters are very interesting and realistic- the main character, Mihashi, is strange and quirky- and, oh my God, doesn't get a harem because he's bullied!


I really recommend it.

Angel Densetsu (the person who made it also made claymore. The drawing put me off but I stuck to it and really liked it.)

I'll recommend one of my favorites, Boys On The Run. This Seinen series makes Japan seem full of gangsters and lowlifes who make all the wrong decisions, but it's still an interesting and (most importantly) ENGAGING read. It's pretty mature, so I don't know if you're old enough for me to recommend this to you, but you could say manga in itself is an unrated experience.
