is a nice collection of short stories which can probably fit under psychological? I'm not very good with genres :|

stargirl

thank you!! it sounds really interesting~

While mostly fitting under psychological (as well as Mystery/Horror), both of these could probably also be regarded as Romance and Thriller as well, at least to some extend.

Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Onikakushi-hen

Umineko no Naku Koro ni Episode 1: Legend of the Golden Witch
Comedy, Drama, Horror, Mystery, Psychological, Supernatural,
Manga · Finished · 2007 · 74%

I'd probably recommend the visual novel (source) over the manga, but the manga is definitely a great adaptation in both cases.

haha, i've actually played the umineko VN :)
i'll give higurashi a try, thanks!!

stargirl

This one's I've only found in libraries, but from volume 2 or 3 onwards it actually has a pretty strong romance bent:

Eureka Seven

It would be a travesty to have an Usagi icon and yet not read the manga (also the Sailor V manga, because while it may not be tagged "romance" on AniList, the reading experience ain't complete without it)!

Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon

Codename wa Sailor V

Manga · Finished · 1991 · 66%

This one is probably known better through the movie. The manga has a bit more detail on some fronts as the definitive depiction of the story - I read the manga and watched the movie this past year, so it was a lot easier to pick up on differences between the two.

Koe no Katachi

...and because it'll be easier to find (since I bought the first volume this year and saw the second, final volume in stores), here's a fast read. It also has an anime on Crunchyroll which is a fairly straight adaption, so be sure to check that out if you like it:

Kenka Banchou Otome: Koi no Battle Royal

I'm afraid I don't have any good recommendations outside the romance genre though...

thank you so much!!! :DD
