{Recommendation: Drama Free Comedy with Romance}

*Men’s Kou

So I got a request for a recommendation from “humanbeing”. I figure other people may be looking for something similar so rather then answer directly, a post may be better!

Also if you have any other good suggestions just leave them in the comment box!

“… I have a favour to ask of you: could you recommend me a good shoujo comedy? With good graphics and not so long (unlike Oresama Teacher), without drama, but with some romance, cause comedies that I’m reading always lack it :< I like Gokuraku Seishun Hockey Bu (the heroine is just killing me) but it's long as well and I feel like having something light and short… I think I've read everything tagged as 'comedy' that you recommended here, but maybe you could help me? Oh and I don't like older looking graphics…" Answer:
Oh not a problem at all! A short comedy with romance but no drama.
Hmmm… kind of difficult! Because drama adds a spicy flair? I think.
Men’s Kou is fairly drama free but absolutely hilairious. I love the graphics too! A little bit of romance.

I’ve read Gokuraku Seishun Hockey too! But not enough romance. T_T

The Devil Within was also light on drama. Also hilarious. (2 Volumes)

Some other titles that may not fit the bill exactly but you may still like:
Gakuen Ouji
Bring it On (hasn’t been reviewed yet, oh my!)

Difficult. Especially since you’ve read the all of the comedy on the site haha! If I think of anything else I’ll definitely add it on.

If anyone would like a recommendation feel free to leave a comment anywhere or email me at recommend@yourgimmick.net
