Probably the most underrated manga in our best romance manga list is Hitomi-chan is Shy With Strangers. This rom-com series is yet another based on the school love story between Hitomi and Yuu. And yes, you will have ecchi moments in it. Hope this will receive an anime adaptation soon.

“Hitomi Takano is a tall, plump high school student with a scary visage, a menacing presence, and shark teeth. However, appearances can be misleading, as Yuu Usami, an upperclassman, discovers. Despite her intimidating appearance, Hitomi-chan is actually a lovely girl who is struggling with social anxiety and would want to make some friends.

Friendship may not be sufficient as Yuu and she becomes closer as they get to know one another. The endearing romcom about a timid but nice girl and her petite but loving senpai is a must-watch.”
