    I think it's an interesting topic~~~

    Maybe you should change the title to just Tomboy Girls in Manga so we can discuss the mangas AND recommend new ones to each other~~

    If not, this thread will probably get locked since there is already a recommendation thread.

    Try these mangas for strong women:

    I Want

    http://www.mediafire.com/?gnzyhzz0imi

    Stone Cold
    http://www.mangafox.com/manga/stone_cold/

    Sorry they are only one-shots, but they are both really cool.

    I'll try some of your recommendations too! And I'll come back and will recommend more manga after I go through my manga list! =)

    High School Debut or Koukou Debut
    aLwAyZ_yG already mentioned it as her number one choice! But yeah, this manga was pretty cool! ^^

    And I see that a mod fixed the topic for you, aLwAyZ_yG, or did you figure it out?

    Some recommendations:
    When I think tomboy I'm not thinking a super athletic girl. I'm thinking more along the lines of a strong female character who is not the typical shojo girl.

    One Piece
    The famous pirate story. Nami is an extremely strong female character who can outsmart and manipulate the strongest of male characters with her wit!

    Forbidden Dance by: Hinako Ashihara
    A girl who is a ballerina and wants to join an all male ballet troop.

    Azumanga Daioh
    Not extremely strong girls, but you never ever see these girls crying about a boy.

    Nodame Cantible
    A music manga. The girl in this manga is whimsical and weird. Does not act like your typical shojo manga girl at all!

    Peach Girl
    Although it's the ultimate shojo manga, I really like Momo's down to earth character.

    Boys Over Flowers
    Makino takes on the 4 most popular boys of her school. It's her stubbornness (as well as Tsukasa's) that keeps this manga going for 36 volumes! @__@

    Yotsubato&!
    About 5 year old Yotsuba. She really is a tomboy! She likes running around and exploring. The other female characters are really down to earth too.

    Immortal Rain
    It's about this guy called Rain who is immortal and can't die. All the bounty hunters in the world want to kill him because he would cash in an awesome bounty. Our 15 year old female protagonist is also a bounty hunter and goes after Rain, but she later joins him in his journey. She's really strong. You'll really like her.

    Can't Lose You by: WANN
    Girl twins separated because of the predictions of an oracle. Both girls are strong. The ending is amazing.

    Telepathic Wanderers by: Tsutsui Yasutaka and Yamazaki Sayaka
    A young woman with telepathic powers is a loner because people around her get hurt due to her abilities.

    Visitor by: Yi-Jung No
    A mysterious story. A girl starts having visions of a murder that involves one of her classmate's relatives.

    GALS!
    Ran in a Shibuya Gal! She exploits dumb guys so they buy her stuff and she protects her 'territory' from other gals. Her parents are police officers and want her to become one too.

    Gokusen
    The main protagonist is the homeroom teacher for a classroom full of delinquents. The class thinks she's a wimpy woman who won't last one day teaching the class. Well, they are dead wrong. Kumiko, the teacher, is the daughter of a Yakuza boss and she knows exactly how to deal with delinquents~~~

    Jun ai Tokkou Taichou
    Love Attack!!! It's hilarious. Reminds me of Power! The main female protagonist, after getting in trouble once again, is told she won't get expelled if she gets the school's top male delinquent to clean up his act!

    Whispers of the Heart
    The young female protagonist tries to figure out her purpose in life~~

    Penguin Brothers
    The main female protagonist transfers to a new school where all the students are divided into the white side and the black side. Both sides are controlled by two guys who HATE each other. When our protagonist finds out about the situation she decides she doesn't want to join either side, even if it mean she's now targeted by the whole school!

    Samurai Champloo
    Fuu is strong~~~ She has to be in order to put up with two barbarians like Jin and Mugen!

    Full House
    After getting tricked into selling her house and becoming homeless, the female protagonist takes on the arrogant super star that bought her house in order to get it back.

    I Wish (love!)
    The female protagonist's family die in a plane crash. She goes to the great magician K in order for him to bring them back to life in exchange for her most precious thing. However, K tells her he can't grant her wish but allows her to start working with him as his apprentice.

    Line
    A girl finds a cell phone on the train. She suddenly starts receiving phone calls from a mysterious person telling her when and where people are about to commit suicide. When she realizes the person on the phone isn't joking she starts running all over Tokyo, trying to stop people from committing suicide.

    Tramps Like Us
    An tough office lady is so tough that she scares away all her boyfriends. When she finds a young man in a box outside her apartment, she takes him under her wing as her dog.

    Special A
    There are 7 students in a school who are top of the class and are considered the Special A. The female protagonist is the number 2 student and she is determined to defeat the number 1 male student who is always better than her in everything!

    Cutie Boy
    The female protagonist used to be bullied by a boy in elementary school. But now that she's in high school, she the super tough captain of her school. She meets a super cute boy and she thinks he's the perfect boyfriend. But then she figures out he's the same boy who bullied her in elementary school.

    The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya
    Haruhi is a stubborn and energetic girl who doesn't want a normal high school life. She wants to meet aliens, espers, and time travelers! She makes Kyon, a boy in her class, join her in her crazy search for them, creating a school club called the SOS Brigade.

    Midnight Secretary
    Kaya in the ultimate secretary and she is super excited to prove her capabilities when she becomes the private secretary of the director for her company. However, her boss is super difficult to handle: he's a womanizer, super strict, super arrogant and he has a dark secret.

    Hataraki Man
    Matsukata's nickname is Hataraki Man (working man) because she's super dedicated to her work at a weekly magazine.

    Spicy Pink
    The female protagonist is a manga-ka. She goes on a blind date and starts marrying a stoic surgeon. I think she made the cut for tomboy because she isn't insecure.

    Devil and Her Love Song
    Maria was kicked out of her last school for hurting a teacher. Maria is a tough cookie who always speaks her mind and always tells you how it really is. She doesn't know how to beat around the bush or say things in a nice way. And this is where most of her problems come from.

    The Kidnapping of Minha Jo's Boyfriend
    Two high school girls are complete enemies, and they both are in their own gangs. They fight each other all the time, and to get even with the other, one girl tries to kidnap the other's boyfriend. But the information her right-hand girl gives her is wrong, and they kidnap some really good-looking guy who is NOT the boyfriend of the other girl. (yeah, I took the summary from mangafox cause I couldn't remember what happened)

    Beauty is the Beast
    Eimi moves to her high school dorms and befriends the scariest boy in her school. She's a weird character. Very whimsical~

    Sorcerers and Secretaries
    Nicole Hayes passes the hours at her boring receptionist job by creating fantasy stories. Her former neighbor, Josh, just wants to get Nicole's attention and thinks if he could get a peek into Nicole's notebook, he might find a way to draw her out of her daydreams. She's very focused on her stories.

    Yanki-kun to Megane-chan (love!)
    Megane-chan is a crazy girl who is her homeroom class president. When it's time for the class's school trip she is determined to make her class's Yankee go too. She chases him down, even when he's in the bathroom!!

    Dengeki Daisy
    After the female protagonist's brother died, she was contacted by Daisy via cell phone text. She tells Daisy all her problems and he helps her out. When she breaks the window of a classroom in her school, the school janitor makes her work for him.

    Island by: Komi Naoshi
    In a land surrounded by a tall wall, two little girls are determined to see what lies beyond it.

    And those are all my recommendations! <3

    I'm going to try out Beast Master and re-read Koibana! Thanks. =)

    Bring It On! is my All TIME Fave too!! ^^

    ^whoa. thanks cutiek028! I've read most of the manga you listed but there are still few that I needed to check out. Reading the synopsis, they do sound good.

    anyways. I like TOUGH girls. its not everyday we read about a girl who's very independent and doesn't resort to crying right away when things go wrong her way.

    Most of cutiek028's recommendations are the ones I've read so I think I can only suggest one for now.

    Otomen.
    It's about a guy who's very feminine and a girl who's very "masculine"? lol
    they'll end up with each other anyways so no, its not shounen-ai or shoujo-ai as it may seem. image

    I love 'You're My Girlfriend'.
    You gotta check that one out! d;
    It is seriously the funniest manga I have ever read. Too bad it's only 1 volume image

    Or maybe 'Pretty Face' ? It's about a guy trapped in a girls body? Pretty funny too. Not sure if this is what you're looking for.

    Those are the only ones I can think of right now. I'll try to list some more image

    You're welcome for the list! =)

    You know, I was re-reading Koibana Koiseyo Hanabi and she's totally not a tough girl! Omg! She might hate guys, but she's kinda weak. And I found out what happens later in the series and yeah... XP
  • janelleskijanelleski Paris, FrancePosts: 595Member
    i'll try those titles. i'm also in need of some to kill time image

    anyway, have you tried H3 School? It's also known as Happy Hustle High. well, the lead character is a tomboy and she gets to have a VERY handsome boy friend in her new school. since she's a tomboy, she tries ridiculous things on being cute image haha! it's a very funny manga image plus the ending is also nice

    This is still in my reading list but honestly, I prefer her older work, Parfait Tic. Hanabi acts like little child here. immature I say. not really the type of shoujo girl I want her to become of.

    H3 School is one of my favourites. I'm just glad I bought the books in one go. lol
    It's really recommended. There's no "defeat" in her vocabulary. I just love Hanabi. (LOL, i just realized Koibana and H3 School share the same name for the main girl)
    and of couse YASU is JUST SOOO HOT. image

    You're welcome! ^^

    OMG! I just read the CUTEST story with the coolest Tomboy girl! (it's a oneshot)

    By Hero
    Sendrick is a little bird that has always hated humans the most in the world. All his life, he's been running from them out of fear, but soon, he accidentally encounters a human tomboy-ish girl named Kayana. This unexpected encounter might actually change a lot in Sendrick's mind.
    http://www.mangafox.com/manga/by_hero/

    image

    Also, a very nice 6 volume manga with a pretty strong heroine. (the guy is the girly one! =3=)

    Oyayubihim Infinity
    Long ago, a group of friends banded together—and now the whole gang has been reincarnated in the present day. Each has a reminder of the past: a butterfly-shaped birthmark on their thumbs. When the marks touch, they catch a glimpse of their shared past, though what they see doesn't always match.
    http://www.mangafox.com/manga/oyayubihime_infinity/

    It's a very unique storyline. Slightly nostalgic of Please Save My Earth, but still one of a kind. I still need to read the last volume!
