These titles have very similar elements, if your looking for shy girls who discover that they can do more when they meet their first love, these are keepers! although Mars is oriented to shojou  going on to mature readers, Sensual Phrase goes over and extends the meaning of "making love" and "being loved".

Drama, tragedy, romance and above all very down to earth stories, nothing very exagerated.

Both Mars and Sensual Phrase deal with teen girls who develop into strong young women through a more than questionable love for strong male charaters. The mangas share the same level of dramatic twists and turns, though Sensual Phrase pushes the bar with sexual situations. If you love one you'll definitely enjoy the other.

Both Mars and Bitter Virgin have a female lead that was raped by their step-father.  Both women become hateful and somewhat fearful of men (much more drastic in BV).  While Mars focuses a lot on the male lead's past, BV is more focused on how the male lead come to terms with this secret and how he tries to protect her.  If you liked either, you should give the other one a try.

Similar in nature and feeling are Mars and Bitter Virgin with the heroines fear of the men around them do to an awful connection to their pasts.

Peach Girl

With a noticeable tan and bleached hair, Momo Adachi is a high school student who is frequently misunderstood by her classmates. She's accused of being a playgirl and is the subject of many rumors, most of which originate from her ‘best friend' Sae who is jealous of Momo due to them having a crush on the same boy. Momo's life only gets worse when Kairi Okayasu, who she once saved from drowning, decides to make her his own. Kairi coming into Momo's life only encourages Sae to spread more rumors about Momo and Kairi while going after Toji herself, creating quite a complicated situation for everyone involved.

Hot Gimmick

Hot Gimmick

If you are unlucky enough get on her bad side, or are even just a victim of rumors, your whole family is doomed to suffer! So when Hatsumi is caught buying a pregnancy test for her sister by Ryouki - the son of the Tachibana family who also used to bully Hatsumi when she was a child - she is naturally worried. Ryouki then attempts to blackmail Hatsumi and, fearing for the reputation of her family, she agrees to become his slave. But when her childhood friend, Azusa, suddenly moves back to the complex, he resumes his role of protecting Hatsumi from Ryouki. With complicated love stories and various hidden family secrets, it appears that this gossip-mongering housing complex is not quite so typical after all.

Both of these stories have a very similar plot in which one person falls in love with some who hardly suited for them (judging from other's background).

Both female main characters from each story face trials from their past. The male main characters are linked in some way or another to these past trials.
