    I'll sort them by maturity from the really kiddy ones to the later high school ones:

    - Gakuen Alice/Alice Academy*
    - Kamichama Karin* (it has an anime out!)
    - Tsubasa Chronicle*
    - Marmalade Boy*
    - Dakedo Happy Paradise
    - Fushigi Yuugi*
    - Parfait Tic
    - MeruPuri*
    - Love Monster
    - Vampire Knight*
    - Love Celeb
    - Desire Climax
    - Haou Airen

    * licensed in the US

    Pink ones are my most favorite.

    Re: I am in desperate need of a good manga.

    I thank you all so kindly for giving me these manga titles. I'll make sure to check out at least 4 of the suggested titles!
    What is Ranma 1/2 about?

    (Could I get a summary of each manga that you all submit? That way I will be sure to get what is appropriate for my age, I'm 16 so I can't get adult manga yet!!!)

    Hmm.. most of these titles are appropriate for 16 year olds (I was reading them at your age, too), although Love Celeb, Desire Climax, Haou Airen, and Love Monster can get a little too smutty sometimes. They'd probably fall into the category of shoujo's guilty pleasures. xP

    Gakuen Alice/Alice Academy by Tachibana Higuchi
    In a small country school, Sakura Mikan and Imai Hotaru are classmates and best friends - in their own way. Ditzy, emotional Mikan seems ill-matched with aloof, emotionless Hotaru, yet they are together all the time... until Hotaru gets called away to study at the strange and forbidding Alice Academy. In her anguish at being left behind, Mikan finally decides to follow her friend - and doing so, she makes a strange discovery.

    Orphan Hanazono Karin is a below-average girl who just lost another person dear to her; her best friend and loyal cat, Shi-chan. While visiting Shi-chan's grave, she meets Kujyou Kazune, a smart prettyboy who insults her right after meeting her. She runs away from him, hoping to never see his face again, but fate seems to have other ideas -- the girl she bumps into the very next day is none other than Himeka, Kazune's cousin. During her second meeting with Kazune, something strange happens to her ring, the last thing she has to remember her mother by. Afterwards, strange events happen all day around her, with no explaination. The fourth meeting with Kazune explains quite a bit; her ring has the power to turn her into a goddess. With Himeka's support and Kazune's guidance, Karin begins her training to become one of the divine.

    Vampire Knight by Hino Matsuri
    Yuki's earliest memory is of a stormy night in winter, wherein she was attacked by a vampire... And then rescued by another. Now 10 years later, Yuki Cross, the adapted daughter of the headmaster of Cross Academy, has grown up and become a guardian of the vampire race, protecting her savior, Kaname, from discovery as he leads a group of vampires at the elite boarding school. But also at her side is Zero Kiryu, a childhood friend who’s hatred for the creatures that destroyed everything he held dear, is now determined never to trust them. This coexisting arrangement seems all well and good, but have the vampires truly renounced their murderous ways, or is there a darker truth behind their actions. Is Kaname's infatuation with Yuki the beginning of a forbidden romance, or is it something in her forgotten past that draws him to her. Because in this world of secrets, nothing is as it seems. And the price of misplaced trust may even be worse than death.

    What is Ranma 1/2 about?

    (Could I get a summary of each manga that you all submit? That way I will be sure to get what is appropriate for my age, I'm 16 so I can't get adult manga yet!!!)
    Ranma 1/2 follows the life of young martial artist Ranma Saotome, who is cursed during a training misson with his father in China. Both of them fell into cursed springs-in which would turn whoever fell in into whatever drowned there. Ranma ends up being a girl version of himself and his father becomes a panda. Warm or hot water reverses the curse while cold water turns them back to cursed forms.

    If things weren't complicated enough, Ranma returns to Japan with his dad, only to discover that he is to be engaged with one of the daughters of his father's old friend from their early years.
    Apparantly, the youngest, Akane Tendo, was selected by her father and sisters to become Ranma's fiance.
    But, here's the catch, Ranma & Akane detest each other or so they would try to make everyone believe. Deep down, they care about each other a lot, but are both too proud and stubborn to admit. Their romance acts as the key to the whole story, especially since their families are trying to match them togather.
    Further complications arise in other fiances and love rivals such as Shampoo the chinese amazon, Tatewaki Kuno, a upper class kendo master who coincidentally loves both Akane and Ranma's girl fdorm (though he never realises this) and Ryoga Hibiki, Ranma's biggest rival, who too was cursed, but takes the form of a little black pig, who in turn becomes Akane's pet and falls in love with her from there.

    Hope that helps. It's primarilly a love story, mixed with comedy and martial arts.
