I don't know the name but I need it. This manga is about a girl who was transformed into a little girl. There was three guys who have various strings and different colors. This girl used her strings to turn back into her real body for awhile in battle. Does anyone know what I am talking about?

Genre: Shounen(?) Supernatural (?)
Description: It involved a some kind of training school where one of the instructors was a small boy who wielded a demonic power i think. He also used a huge sword as his main weapon but was shown later on in the manga he was proficient in unarmed combat due to being raised with some kind of demons. He has only two students a girl and a boy. I don't recall much about the boy but i the girl was introduced in the first chapter and seemed pretty desperate to join pass the exam.
Details: It had a battle style theme where I believe there was a tournament sometime in the manga.

Wouldn't happen to be Dragon Eye by Kairi Fujiyama would it? Del Rey released 9 volumes before they went out of business. It's been on hiatus for a few years because of the author being ill.

Looking for a name of the manga that have a guy with spikey hair and holding a sword with his gloves on. Looks like he have a bandage around his head and wearing a jacket with a shirt on. Does anyone recognize it?

That is... too general of a description. Do you remember what color the guy's hair was? What color his clothes were? What type of sword he was holding? Did you see the cover on a physical book, or was it a scanlation? If it was a physical book, do you remember the publisher? Do you remember what color the logo of the series was?

I want to help you, but my best guess right now is to point you towards the majority of shonen...

Hi,

I'm looking for a lesser known manga that I stumbled upon years ago.

My memory of it is very blurry, but here's what I remember: the two protagonists were children, a boy and a girl, called "dolls" (I think), which, in the setting, designates children unable to feel certain emotions. I think the girl was unable to feel happiness, and the boy fear (or maybe sadness) (or maybe it was the other way around... as I said, very blurry).

Pretty sure it took place in a perpetual-wintery place. I think the girl was a runaway princess, and the boy ends up becoming her protector. It had a few action moments but it had a more poetic vibe than most shounen.

Help me, ANN, you're my only hope!

@joelafrite: Kimi no Kakera, by Shin Takahashi? The wintry setting reminded me, and I'm pretty sure all the other details fit. I'd like to read that again...

Gah, I'm thinking this was a manga. Could've been an anime for all I know, but I'll try here first.

The scene that is sticking out in my head is that there's this somewhat young 20s something guy that's a member of the Yakuza. The Yakuza offs someone then convinces him to take the fall as a few years in the slammer will make him more respectable when he comes out and they promise to promote him afterwards. But he finds out that they have no plans to promote him after he comes out and they're just using him as a fall guy. I think he runs away or tries to run away as a result. He might've been dating the boss' daughter, which would explain why the boss hates him so much.

...this sounds really familiar. It's either a common situation or I've read it too. xD That said, the only things that come to mind are Wild Adapter or Gungrave, and I'm not too optimistic about those being the one.

I haven't read either of those two so it can't be one of them.

Maybe it is an anime? I don't feel like it's common enough that I've read it more than once, I feel like once I see the name, it'll click.
