Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai
I'd try to recommend more, but my taste over the years has been a lot less discerning. But anyway, seconding this.
Anyway, stuff I was going to throw up some titles to the public. I've really been more concerned about atmospheres and impressions rather than plotlines here.
Slow Motion wo Mou Ichido
Who likes J-pop? 80's J-pop? Yes, it's a high school puppy love tale about a boy and a girl born a generation too late. There's a ton of references to 80s Japanese pop culture, but apart from that it's a cute story. Also the author draws great floofy hair.
@YoWid You, you'll like this, probably.
Koi wa Ameagari no You ni
Greenlit for an anime recently. It's about a somewhat stoic high school girl, Akira, who falls in love with her boss at her part time work in a family restaurant. The man in question is a meek self-doubting divorcee, with a young son, who seems to have lived a menial life of many regrets. The story is centred thematically of course around youth and the nostalgia for youth, self-worth, oh and the whole rain aspect is used to set up a somewhat melancholic but also sometimes optimistic tone (when you get to around the mid 20s it's highlighted by the boss).
Draw card here is the aesthetic and writing that doesn't make you cringe like a lot of romance tends to do. Well for me anyhow.
Totsukuni no Shoujo: Siúil, a Rún
Tagline from manga updates: "It is a story full of sadness. From now let's recite a slow and beautiful story from long ago."
For people who like a dark somber atmosphere (quite literally dark, the art uses a shit-ton of blacks, so if you can find HQ scan sources, try that instead of aggregates, because the differentiating between objects in a panel is supposed to be obscure but not absolutely undetectable). I don't mean blood and guts and action here if that's what you want. The main relationship here (this isn't a romance) is a father-daughter kind of relationship. The story is supposed to be a bit of a mystery, so I won't talk about that.
