If someone could help me in this search, that would be wonderful. To be honest I know very little about this manga other than its probably 10 years old or better. The premise (i'm pretty sure) is a highschool setting where some whimpy new kid befriends some girl who happens to be super strong.

I wish I knew more than that, but I don't really :/ a conversation came up about old manga and that one just popped back up. A friend had one copy of one random issue and that was it. I'll keep trying to figure it out but if anyone has any idea's from the very limited info I gave that would be awesome.

Hmm.. I'm afraid quite a lot of series probably match your description.

Kenichi: The Mightiest Disciple is what I think of right off the top of my head. The publication's age is about right, the protagonist is wimpy and gets bullied a lot, but it's the strong girl he befriends that's the new student, not the protagonist.

I'm not able to pull a title out of my little head for now, so my apologies..but could perhaps narrow it down to a genre? I think that might be the only way I could personally assist as most anime from back then are a blur now.

--In any case I hope someone can shed some light on your dilemma. I think everyone knows that feeling of having something just at the tip of your memory.

I know its not kenichi, I've read and watched that one in its entirety.

Honestly I can't remember enough about the stupid thing to even be able to narrow it down. All of the highschool shounen manga from 1990 to 2010 I could find weren't the right ones (I've been looking now for a few days and I've literally read the first issue of hundreds of manga now.)

all I know FOR SURE is that its modern highschool, weak male lead with a strong female sidekick. I remember her being odd for some reason but other than that the content I can't quite nail down why she was fighting other people other than that she was basically 'One punch man' on the campus.

This is particularly bothersome because I can remember it being the first time I'd ever seen a reverse book (you know, normal manga) and I was just getting started watching toonami midnight run with inuyasha, cowboy bebop and a few others, so fairly formative. I'd say mid-late 2000's but I'm not sure if the manga was new or old. probably new as i think it was an early issue.

Other possibilities: (although none of these fit perfectly, all have a male lead weaker than the female lead in a modern setting)
