Right guys, need your help. Got lucky coming across Tomochan wo Annonoko when BB(I think) name dropped the author. I though to myself, "yeh, this is my jam" and have been searching high and low for other good romance anime and manga with similar female characters. Put simply, I'm bored of the "ruffian/prince wooing the vulnerable, sweet girl, so that probably eliminates like 90% of what I'm willing to read. Even non-traditional gender roles would be welcome suggestions, doesn't exactly have to be a tomboyish girl. Kaichou wa Maid-sama is an example of something I'd be looking for too.
