I Love High School 1, Love at First Sight and Sensei, Me, my first (3L shoujo manga out now)

I・HS 1 恋になるまで

I ♥ HS © Yokoyama Mayumi/Shogakukan (First serialized in Betsucomi)
Koi ni Naru made © Yumachi Shin/Shogakukan (First serialized in Cheese!)
Published in Indonesia as I Love High School and Love at First Sight by Tiga Lancar Semesta/3L

Choose your launch sequence: Childhood Friends · Friends Become Lovers · Multiple Relationships · Perverted Guy OR Popular Boy · Shy Girl · Love at First Sight.

The first gets you Yokoyama Mayumi's I Love High School comedy; the second, Yumachi Shin's Love at First Sight (Koi ni Naru made) omnibus. Alternatively, you can plump for Student-Teacher Relationship — in which case you bring home Sensei, Me, my first (Sensei to, Watashi to, Hajimete) by Watanabe Shiho.

(Thanks to Baka-Updates Manga users for the I ♥ HS, Koi ni Naru made and Sensei to, Watashi to, Hajimete categories.)

Another option, if you drool over all the tropes listed, is to GET! all three.

I Love High School follows Megu and her friends whose normal banal days take a turn for the worse when childhood pest, I mean, friend Yamato returns. Love at First Sight subverts the usual confessing to the guy you fell in love with at the school's opening ceremony by replacing him with another guy at the designated kokuhaku place. I don't think Sensei, Me, my first needs further blurbing. The tag and the title already gave away the lure of a forbidden relationship.

These 3L manga also shipped without prior advisory (just saw them piled up in Gramed): KyouKoi 8 by Minami Kanan (in which Tsubaki and Kyota and the rest of the class go on a study tour to some island), Ways To Forget Your Love by Hanada Yumi and Plastic Surgery by Higuchi Marina, the latter duo sounding too self-explanatory.

3L shoujo manga (streeted 2010.07.13 and earlier)

♫ Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ ♫ ayu ♫ Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ ♫ said...

btw..those recent mangas..where can i read them ONLINE..?

I already answered you in the same post you commented on and in your blog. To recap, if you're looking for these series or short manga/manhwa, I suggest you try Manga Traders (download) or onemanga or mangafox (online).

Thanks for commenting again ^^

in onemanga and mangafox i cannot find those titles..(e.g i love HS.. etc) :/

♫ Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ ♫ ayu ♫ Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ ♫ said...

btw..in manga trade..should i create an account first before i can download..?

Already tried to answer your questions in your blog, but let me reiterate here:

Using this forum again to answer the questions you raised in my blog:

It's only to be expected that some series won't be in onemanga or mangafox if (1) They haven't been scanlated and (2) If they've been licensed. The second has become more of an issue right now, especially with a manga consortium actively trying to stop piracy.

To check whether anyone is scanlating a series you're interested in, I suggest checking out Baka-Updates Manga.

As for Manga Traders, yup, you have to create an account for you to download manga.

Hope I answered your questions ^^

ooohh..i see..so that's why..well..i just thought i can read them online..as many cases applied so far,,but purchasing a manga from my country is really expensive and rare hehe..so i guess i should just wait for those titles to be legally scanned :D

anyway, thanks for sharing..hmm..i guess i should read others..anyway, there's plenty mangas scanned to choose from..thanks for the sites you have given ^^
