Thanks to Crunchyroll's new manga section that's open to all premium members, I have developed a unquenchable thirst for good manga. Preferably with a male protagonist and elements of romance. Any suggestions? Also I've read most of what Crunchyroll has to offer so I need a new place to read my manga to!

Personally, my favorite two romance manga are: (btw, some of my suggestions are pretty grown-up in terms of theme and artwork, and I'm assuming that's okay)
Ah My Goddess
Umi no Misaki

However, other suggestions depend a bit on which Crunchyroll manga you liked best, but here are some suggestions based on some of the better romance manga on there:

If you liked Boku wa Minna, try:
Love Hina
Ai Yori Aoshi
Koibana Onsen (VERY mature)
KagaTora

If you liked Fuuka or Kimi no Iru Machi (Town Where No One Lives) Try:
Sukuza (Fuuka is it's sequel, sort-of)
GE: Good Ending
My Little Monster

If you liked Maga-Tsuki, Try:
To Love Ru
Love Hina (still)
Mayo Chiki
Nisekoi

If you like My Wife is Wagatsuma-San, try:
Sore wa Totsuzen (short story collection)
Uwagaki
Ashita Dorobou

If you like Mysterious Girlfriend X, try:
Dusk Maiden of Amnesia
My Love Story

I have been reading Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches for the past week. So far I have been enjoying it very much. It is on Crunchyroll by the way. While the plot line is not ground breaking it is unique in a way. It is slightly ecchi, I don't know how you feel about that, but I may as well tell ya before hand.

Also if you enjoy that one look out for Rosario Vampire. This one is not on Crunchyroll but it is one of my all time favorites. While the anime for this one was not that great, the manga is damn good in my opinion. It is similar to the one I mentioned above.

Nisekoi is also a great one too, and the anime for it is good too!!!!!!

Ooh thanks for the in depth recommendations, I personally don't mind mature themes so you're good there. I've been reading Ashita Dorobou and its pretty good so far so thanks :0 I'll give these other ones a try too

I'm already reading Yamada, I straight up marathoned all 154 chapters in one day XD, and I've been following the Nisekoi anime since it released it's first episode, but it would be interesting to read the manga as well. I tried watching the anime for Rosario, and I agree it wasn't that good. However, I like the idea so I will def. give the manga a try

Thanks everyone for the suggestions!
