ok so this is going to sound like a rant. tl;dr will be at the end.

i don't know what's wrong with me honesty. maybe it's the good art, story, whatever. but i've noticed that whenever i finish a manga i feel empty. like REALLY empty. i don't think I'm your average person wherein he longs for more, maybe another chapter or two and that's it, time to move on to next manga. i want like 100 chapters more or something. sure it sounds normal enough but what if i said the type of manga I'm (somehow) drawn to are like seishun pop, glass no megami, velvet kiss, kimi no iru machi, good ending, suzuka, tasogare otome, fuuka. it might seem like they have no correlation whatsoever with one another. but for some reason i always feel some sort of sadness or hurt when reading them, even in parts where you're not even supposed to feel that way. and then i feel like theres a whole in my heart when i finish. and the thing that scares me the most is that i keep rereading them and crave for more (no im not a masochist. i checked). so yeah i was wondering if there's anyone who could suggest a fulfilling manga with good art and story. or if you know what's wrong with me that would be a big help too. thanks for taking the time to read this.


tl;dr: weird (?) empty person looking for fulfilling manga and/or medical diagnosis (?)

Idk, you would have to speak to a psychologists. You could be really depressed. I like Fruits Baskets. It's got all the feels, the pain, and the comedy. It also helps show a way out in a way, or a way that you can work on just keep moving forward in life. Maybe your need is a spirtual need too, you could ask spirtual leaders for help too. Might be cheaper than a psychologist. I know a lot of people say they feel empty before they get "saved" or become ultra religious in a peaceful way. I guess it depends on the person. Not sure if this answers all your questions, but I hope it helps. Oh yeah, I've felt that emptiness before too. For me, it usually helps to listen to someone encouraging, a bit of spirituality (for me its listening to Joel Osteen and stuff), or it could at times mean that I'm just plain hungry. Hope this helps

I go through a bit of the same withdrawal, although not to the same degree that you are talking about. Things that I've found which help me:

-- Go for a walk, preferably with my wife
-- Read/watch something purely lighthearted and fluffy. Usagi Drop (anime or first half of manga), Barakamon, Amagami SS, Kimikiss (manga or anime), Sore wa Totsuzen, Uwagaki, Bonnouji, Koi x Kagi, My Lovely Ghost Kana ... those are just some examples of anime or manga that I fall back on in these circumstances, though there are others.
-- Play a short, action-oriented video game--something where I can step in, kick ass, get a short rush, and feel good about myself.

As for other suggestions, give the types of manga you've listed, I can make a bunch of them:

Nozoki Ana
Koibana Onsen
Haru, yo Koi
Little Girl (AKA She is Young) (Korean Webtoon)
Orange Yane no Chiisana Ie
Toshiue no Hito
Hetakoi
Kimi wa Pet (josei)
Midnight Secretary (josei)
Honeymoon Salad
Can't See, Can't Hear But Love (Korean Webtoon)
Koi Kaze (warning: incest)
Koi wo Suru no ga Shigoto Desu
Natsu no Zenjitsu (make sure to read the short follow-ups, Mizu to Gin and Mizu no Iro Gin no Tsuki)
Unbalance x Unbalance (manhwa)
Femme Fatale
