I've been going through a sort of manga revival recently and have been chewing through a lot of stuff, especially shoujo/romance.

Here's what I enjoyed recently:
Hana-Kimi - The artist's panel layouts are so detailed. And the story so far is really cute and doesn't wear out its premise, surprisingly.
Love Com - The artist draws some really, really great facial expressions. Kind of reminds me of Kodocha.
Alice in the Country of Hearts/Clover/Joker - These have been hit-or-miss. I actually really liked the Bloody Twins one, and the current Joker series is my favorite so far.
Crimson Empire - Manga based on another QuinRose game (Alice). Since the games don't get translated I'll have to just make due with the manga releases.
Heart of Thomas - Early example of BL manga published in 1974. Comes printed in a beautiful hardcover edition.
Ouran High School Host Club - Watched the anime on a whim on Netflix and loved it. Want to get all the manga now!
Tokyo Babylon - Seeing the large version that was just reprinted and picking it up is the cause of my recent manga revival (haven't read any in like 7 years). God the art is pretty, I prefer when CLAMP uses a lot more black and dark solid lines.

Been surprisingly in love with Hana-Kimi (my volumes 13-14-15 3-in-1 is in the mail and I can't wait) and with Love Com (Lovely Complex), which I picked up on a whim and really enjoyed the artist's style. It seems volume 7 of Love Com is annoyingly out of print ($30-40 used on sites, ugh) so I'm at a bit of a roadblock on that one. Been eyeing the large Ouran complete collection on Amazon, too. Tempting.

I haven't really been exploring the manga section that often but I definitely have a few favourites!!

Annarasumanara - It's not really a manga, but a manhwa. However, I really liked it. It's sweet and realistic, despite being about "magic". The artist's style is rather unique and even manages to pull off photoshopping pictures in there in an interesting way.
Natsume Yuujinchou - I love Natsume and Nyanko-sensei so much! The stories, although usually short and don't relate or show up again in the series (albeit a few characters who do show up every so often), are heart warming or tear jerking. It's really sweet and if you aren't really looking for a romance but something along the lines of it, this is a good manga to read.
Ansatsu Kyoushitsu - One of the strangest mangas I have read BY FAR. If you liked Matsui Yuusei's Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro, then you'll probably like this one as well.
Horimiya - There are two different versions of these, the original and the remake. The original was a set of webcomics while the latter is a manga adaption of it. Both are pretty cute, but the former has an OVA with that art style, not the manga's style of art.
Lovely Complex - My fave because they took something so normal and wove it into a story line making it funny and sad. Made me cry a bunch of times during reading it and watching the anime.
Oresama Teacher - This manga is one of my favourite shoujos (besides Lovely Complex). The characters can often be a bit over the top with their antics or ways of solving problems -- But hey, it's manga. What's not over the top?

^Ah, I love Annarasumanara, too!

I like to read dark or seinen manga. My list is over 300, so it's hard to choose. These are just a few of my favorites:
I Am a Hero (starts out as normal slice of life, then in Volume 2 it suddenly becomes a zombie manga :lol: )
Oyasumi Punpun (psychological, probably changed my life)
Homunculus (it's so bizarre and creepy in a good way)
Uzumaki (horror, I love everything by this author)
After School Nightmare (about people's dream selves, ending is a huge surprise)
Yotsubato! (lighthearted, feel good manga :) )

^Yeah yeah Annarasumanara!! Do you believe in 'magic'? :D

My favorite manga of all is Oyasumi Punpun. It's really depressing and creepy but I still got hooked to it. Unfortunately, it is still on going, with only two volumes left. It is written by Asano, Inio. I love every manga that he writes!

On my current manga list:
-The World God Only Knows -- 2nd favorite manga xD Just fell in love with those girls :lol:
-Minamoto-kun Monogatari -- It's ecchi and I'm not really fond of ecchi nowadays but this one keep me hooked. It's great anyway :D
-Nana to Kaoru -- This is ecchi too but unique in its own way. BSDM all the way :twisted:
-Tower of God -- It's manhwa and its reeeeeeaaaaally good!! I SWEAR!!
-Girls of the Wild -- Manhwa too. It's good too but the current chapters are becoming boring. Just for me.
-Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai -- One of my favorites. Well I really enjoy this manga because it's fun :lol:
-Watashi ga Motenai no wa Dou Kangaete mo Omaera ga Warui! -- This is one of the mangas that will make you laugh and feel depress at the same time!! :cry:

More to mention but this is the best for me :twisted:

^ there are only two volumes left of Punpun? Aw, I don't see how it can wrap up that fast where it is now!

I recommend Mahou Shoujo of the End to anyone who doesn't want to sleep for a while. It's a pretty good horror story IMO, but if you're not fond of gore, I can't recommend it. It's got something similar to a zombie apocalypse vibe, but with weird doll-like magical girls. I can't really say much more without spoilers, but I'd say it's worth a read.

Let's see:
Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer - awesome story, be ready to shed some manly (or womanly?) tears. :D
Mx0 - Very good protagonist. A good break from the usual shounen heroes. Be prepared though, this manga was cancelled.
Kagami no Kuni no Harisugawa - A RomCom from the author of Mx0. I love the twists and turns of the story. Too bad the plot was resolved too quickly.

Hmm, I mostly read oneshots and short one-volumes, but these should keep you occupied for a while.

Furou Kyoudai: Very interesting and funny siblings. One volume long.
Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun: As soon as I saw the aloof male high school student shoujo mangaka and guys playing otome games, I was sold!
DOYDK (Dear Only You Don't Know): Korean webcomic. The female characters very interesting with their secrets.
Nukoduke!: It's just cuteness overload!

Just gonna add to this list!

Both of what I'm reading are ongoing manga/manhwa that takes time to update, but they are good.
Check out the ff:
Houseki no Kuni
DICE: The cube that changes everything

They both have very interesting concepts and they are at the peak of their storylines! :D

I'm currently working on:

-Houseki no Kuni

Recently Finished:

-My Lesbian Experience with Loneliness

Both are wonderful. MLEwL is really relatable. Houseki no Kuni is gorgeous and I love the symbolism and concepts.
