Sweet Manga & Manhwa Recommendations

Sweet Manga & Manhwa Recommendations

Meeee

Hello my BAYOG luvs~ It’s yo’ girl Minty~ As y’all know, I spend alot of time reading manhwa/webtoons and manga~ Since Valentines is here and it’s the season of love, I figured I’d share some romance series that I’ve been enjoying~ These are the cute ones with sweet and fluffy moments. Although there is one smut one, but it’s still cute. I’m a romanticist and a fangirl. I just really love sweet, wholesome, and fluffy moments~ I’m the person who’ll sit there and smile and squeal like a doofus while I’m reading. It got to the point that my family looks at me and they’re like, “Are you okay? Why are you smiling by yourself? You look crazy…What’s wrong with you??” Anyway, I figured I’d share the love~ Perhaps y’all are looking for some cute reads yourself! The list isn’t in any particular order, but let’s go!~

A Sign of Affection
ゆびさきと恋々
(JP)

Story/Art by Morishita Suu (森下suu)

*Alternatively known as: Yubisaki to Renren/Attached to Your Fingertips

Genre: Romance, Shoujo, Slice of Life, School Life (University)

Synopsis:

Yuki is a typical college student, whose world revolves around her friends, social media, and the latest sales. But when a chance encounter on a train leads to her meeting friend-of-a-friend and fellow student Itsuomi-san, her world starts to widen. But even though Itsuomi-kun can speak three languages, sign language isn’t one of them. Can the two learn to communicate the budding feelings between them?

Synopsis credit: [Kodansha Comics]

Officially Available in English: [Kodansha Comics]
**Monthly simulpub**

This series is just super sweet and fluffy~ The art is so pretty too! I love the characters. Yuki is a sweetheart. Itsuomi is just an interesting guy and I feel like I could be friends with him. Since he loves to travel and learn languages. It’s also interesting and different because Yuki is deaf and uses sign language and texts on her phone. It’s a great story to think of a perspective and struggles we may not always think about. It’s really sweet how much Yuki likes Itsuomi, and how much he likes her. I love how they’re both helping each other expand their world and perspectives. They’re just super, duper sweet~


30 Minute Walk
걸어서 30분
(KR)

Story/Art by Lee On Do (이온도)

Genre: Romance, Shoujo, Slice of Life, School Life (High School)

Synopsis:

The romantic way back home of Galaxy Institution’s Wi Seong Eun (Moon) and Ji Gu Bong (Earth).
The world’s most thrilling time, this 30 minute walk.

Synopsis credit: [MangaUpdate]

Officially Available in English: Not Yet

Again, this is a sweet and fluffy series. It’s not like you’re smacked with super sweet moments though. It’s like gradually sweet. It’s a slow, and easy going kind of pace. A very slice of life series. It follows some awkward high schoolers who attend the same cram school. They both walk home in the same direction. So they begin to gradually get closer during their 30 minute walks together. Y’all know I’m not that big of a fan of high school kind of romance series anymore. I guess it’s because I’m older now, so it’s harder for me to get into them. However, I really liked this one. I didn’t find it annoying or cringey. Rather, I thought it was sweet and pretty relatable. I liked that it had a realistic, yet light-hearted feel.


Something About Us
우리사이느은
(KR)

Story/Art by Lee Yunji (이연지)

*Alternatively known as: Woori Sai Neueun/Our Relationship Is…

Genre: Romance, Josei, Slice of Life, Drama, Comedy, School Life (University)

Synopsis:

They consider themselves the best of friends. Others seem to think otherwise.
There’s something about their relationship that’s hard to describe. What will become of these two “friends”?

Synopsis credit: [Lezhin]

Officially Available in English: [Lezhin][Tapas][Manta]

Ah! I love this one~ This is story centers around two childhood friends. They were very close. Rather than just close friends, their relationship seemed to be more like a “some”. Basically, their relationship seemed to be more than friends, but not quite lovers. It’s a story that about these two friends who are now college students, trying to figure out just what their relationship is. Again, I liked the aspect where this is something that can (and does) happen in real life. This series just also really stuck to me because I could relate to it. I’m sure anyone who’s had a “some” type of relationship can relate. Also, I just really love the art for this one too~ There was supposed to be a live action drama with Seo Kangjun (Baek In Ho from [Cheese in the Trap]). However, we never really had any updates on it for nearly 2 or so years now.


A Common Story of a Lady’s New Life
흔한 환생녀의 사정
(KR)

Story by Jin Suyoon (진수윤)
Art by Poolmo (풀모)

*Alternatively known as: The Stereotypical Life of a Reincarnated Lady

Genre: Romance, Fantasy, Shoujo, Historical Comedy, Transmigration

Synopsis:

Valerie thought she’d be a genius mage in this world. But when her magic can’t get past basic and her teacher shares a prophecy of a tiger coming to attack(!!), she opts to enjoy an ordinary life. Everything’s fine until she’s engaged to none other than Duke Kylus Dwello. It’s just one thing after another—the mysterious Serena, the servants who ship the duke and Serena, a prince who doesn’t understand boundaries, and even the duke looming over her bed! Can she get back to her nice, quiet life?

Synopsis credit: [Tapas]

Officially Available in English: [Tapas]

As you all know, this pandemic got me into alot of manhwa and novels; Especially manhwa based on novels. Most of them have been on the more serious and/or heavy side. The Stereotypical Life of a Reincarnated Lady is great because it’s much more light-hearted and comedic. The art is also gorgeous. It’s different and really charming. I also love the way the coloring is done. It kind of reminds me of watercolors. The series is cute and super funny too. The misunderstandings are just really silly, cute, and hilarious. I also really love Kylus. I like how he isn’t a tsundere or a jerk who’s full of himself; Like many male leads in these stories are. He’s genuinely a nice guy. He’s just socially awkward (not good with social cues and norms), has no interest in courting ladies, and normally has no interest outside of fighting (being strong), and work. However, he’s really interested in Valerie. He’s a sweetheart and like a puppy~ As far as manhwa and Korean novels go, this is a really sweet and fluffy one~ It’s pretty wholesome too~


Paperbag-kun Is In Love
紙袋くんは恋してる
(JP)

Story/Art by Amaebiko Riko (甘海老りこ)

Alternatively known as: Kamibukuro-kun wa Koishiteru

Genre: Romance, Shoujo, Slice of Life, Comedy, School Life (University)

Synopsis:

A stalker? A pervert?
No, no. I’m just a college boy who is single-mindedly in love with someone.
It’s just. I live my life wearing a paper bag on my head.
People look at me strangely on campus.

Even though he’s extremely timid, he abruptly confessed his love and pushing forward!
The girl he confessed to, Umi-chan, took it by surprise! And soon an unexpected turn of events is about to happen…!?
A series of weird but lovely, super cute romantic comedy

Synopsis credit: [MangaUpdate]

Officially Available in English: Not Yet

Okay… Yes, the synopsis makes it sound weird. It seems weird at first, but it’s actually really sweet. It’s just one of those ridiculous kind of stories, but it has plenty of fluff, and wholesome, heartwarming moments.


Honnou Switch
ホンノウスイッチ
(JP)
***NSFW***

Story/Art by Kujira (くじら)

*Alternatively known as: Switch Me On/Instinct Switch

Genre: Romance, Josei, Slice of Life, Smut

Synopsis:

The morning after she got dumped by her boyfriend, when she woke up, she was in the same bed as her childhood friend, Hijiri?! Despite the heartbreak and shock of it all, Koyori just can’t seem to forget Hijiri telling her “I love you”…?! How do you go from being “childhood friends” to “lovers”?! Super popular on the online bookstore! An innocent first love between adults who are trying to graduate from being just childhood friends; it’s a heart-racing LOVE!

Synopsis credit: [MangaUpdate]

Officially Available in English: Not Yet

Okay, first let’s get this out of the way: this series is NSFW. It’s got smut, and it’s pretty spicy. So I don’t recommend trying to read this in work or public. Again, I’m usually not really about smut. I’m more of a fluff gal. However, despite the spicy smut scenes, the series is actually really sweet. It’s another series about childhood friends becoming lovers. Again, I like that this is somewhat realistic, or rather you can see this happening in real life. Hijiri and Koyori are really sweet together, and they feel like a realistic couple. The other thing I really like about this series is that they’re actually pretty logical. It’s a really healthy relationship, and I love that they actually have trust and communicate.


Majou-senpai Nippou
魔女先輩日報

Story/Art by Mochida Maka (餅田まか)

*Alternatively known as: Daily Report About My Witch Senpai

Genre: Romance, Fantasy, Slice of Life, Shoujo, Supernatural, Office Romance, Comedy

Synopsis:

The office stories of a kind hearted, weak-willed, witch senpai and her relatable, straightforward, but kind kouhai that started over a cup of magically warmed coffee.

Synopsis credit: [Boredom Society @ MangaUpdate]

Officially Available in English: Not Yet

This was one of the sweetest manga series I’ve read this year~ You basically have a witch who is kind hearted and weak-willed. Then you have this kouhai who is very reliable, straightforward, but kind. Being a witch makes it a bit difficult for her. Especially because it has caused issues, and can make it a bit hard for her to get close to people. However, he’s understanding and embraces her for who she is. It’s just a cute office-romance kind of series~


My Secretly Hot Husband
남편이 미모를 숨김

Art by Harara (하라라)
Story by Gabi Nam (가비남)
Original Novel by Jungyeon (정연)

*Alternatively known as: My Husband Hides His Beauty

Genre: Romance, Shoujo, Fantasy, Historical, Comedy, Transmigration

Synopsis:

Another lifetime, another hard life—Letitia’s misery continues as her uncle sends her off to the “Monster Lord” to fulfill an old pledge. Imp attacks! The three witches! A hideous masked devil hunter husband! Terrifying is an understatement. But as she becomes the lady of Halstead, the rumors fall apart. Lord Erden is caring, he likes bunnies, and that *gasp* perfect face under the mask! How can he not know he’s HOT? Can she help protect the castle from devils and help Erden see his true self?

Synopsis credit: [Tapas]

Officially Available in English: [Tapas]

*sigh* Let me get a quick rant out. I don’t like the official English title. I think it sounds kind of dumb. I mean the original “My Husband Hides His Beauty” also sounds like “…WTF…??” However, I feel like the official English title just sounds weird in that it doesn’t feel like it fits the historical setting? IDK, whatever. Anyway… this is another pretty sweet and fluffy manhwa based on a novel series. First off, the art is gorgeous. Erden is a top notch bishieeeee~ But I love how sweet and fluffy it is. Again, alot of these manhwa series and K-novels tend to have rough male leads. Erden is a complete sweetheart though. He’s legitimately kind, understanding, and just a good guy. He’s best boiiii~ I love this series because of how sweet and wholesome Letitia and Erden’s relationship and actions are. It’s just really refreshing to have a sweet and wholesome relationship from the get-go. It’s also so incredibly sweet how Erden is always hyping Letitia up. He’s always like, “WIFE!~” while his eyes are like sparkling puppy dog eyes~


Ice Guy and the Cool Female Colleague
氷属性男子とクールな同僚女子

Story/Art by Tonogaya Miyuki (殿ヶ谷美由紀)

*Alternatively known as: Koori Zokusei Danshi to Cool na Douryo Joshi

Genre: Romance, Fantasy, Slice of Life, Shoujo, Supernatural, Comedy, Office Romance

Synopsis:

A cute fluffy romance about a cool female worker and her (literally) freezing-cold colleague.

Synopsis credit: [MangaUpdate]

Officially Available in English: Not Yet

Ah! I love this one~ This one is also super wholesome, sweet, and funny. Basically you have a guy who is a descendent of Yuki-onna (Snow Woman). Yes, that Yuki-onna from the famous Japanese folklore. Anyway, he works in an office and has a crush on his cool female colleague. He can never seem to confess to her, but he’s always happy with their interactions. Every time he gets happy, his snow powers kick in. It’ll suddenly snow, things will suddenly freeze, little snowmen will appear, etc. It’s a light-hearted, fun, and sweet office romance series~

BLACK LIVES MATTER

AS A GROUP OF BIPOC, BAYOG strongly stands with Black Lives Matter. We are all too familiar with the racism that we, our friends, and family have faced on a daily basis. Every life is precious. However, as BIPOC, we also recognize that black people are a group of people that face extreme racism and at a higher risk for their safety. We’ve individually done several donations. Of course, donations to support the cause and support change isn’t the only thing needed. Support for the cause and change also requires conversation and understanding. Make sure to have those conversations. Please remember to be an active supporter, be it through donations, sharing information, and/or conversations and speaking up.

Keep it up fam!

If you can, please consider donating. I’ve donated more than once as well. For one of my donations, I donated through the BTS ARMY x BLM project. I recommend that if you’re unsure of where to donate. This is because the donation will be split amongst several different non-profit organizations. Of course, you can also choose a specific organization(s) if you wish as well. You can find that [HERE].

You can also check out the following:

Stay strong. Fight racism, brutality, injustice, and bullshit. Don’t lose sight of the goal. We’re witnessing and being a part of history. Be allies and make sure change happens. Once again, BLACK LIVES MATTER.

  1. Awesome recommendations, my Valentine’s Day reading plans are set :D! I started reading Something About Us a few years ago but put it down as I was hoping to binge read it once it was all finished and completely forgot about it! Glad to see it’s all finished now but shame the live action hasn’t gone ahead it would have been such a great drama!

    1. Yay!~ I hope you enjoy them~ 😁 Something About Us is on Manta! So you can totally binge read it with Under the Oak Tree! ✨ It’s honestly a shame the drama has been in production limbo. I also think it would’ve been a great drama!
