First thing that came to my mind was Nosatsu Junkie (published by Tokyopop). It's kinda like the reverse of what you described. The guy is the model (a crossdressing model!) and the girl finds out his secret. He pulls her into the modelling world to protect his secret and the two get some chemistry going.

Penguin Revolution is another one about models/actors?... again, though, I think it's a crossdressing boy who is the model and gets found out by the girl. (in Nousatsu the boy models as a girl; in Penguin the boy wears female attire as a disguise in daily life and models as himself.)

If the girl were a maid and not a model, it would sound exactly like Maid Sama!, published by Tokyopop (girl works at maid café for the money, boy from school who likes her finds out).

You saw it in a bookstore, so can we assume it's a licensed title? It sounds similar to Film Girl (Shigeyoshi Takagi) but that hasn't been published here and is possibly also too new (2010-11). I imported both volumes. It's a fun story about a former model girl who gets recognized by a guy who is a major fan of hers (and is currently a model himself) :D

Maybe it was a manhwa? It seems like a plausible plot for one, but I haven't read many so I don't know for sure.

Seems to be from something titled "烤刑架系列", which according to Microsoft translates as "Roast criminal series". I can't seem to find an English page that mentions it, but the panel you posted is number six from this page.

Hey! That's getting anime next season! I'll have to add that to my already giant list of shows I plan on watching next season. Awesome.

Thanks.

I'll see if I can find anything out with the idea that it might have been a manwha. Ill be a bit more specific about it being "years ago". It was somewhere about 2004-2007. Most likely 2005-2006.

Manwha? Kill Me, Kiss me maybe? Tokyopop published it from 2004-2005.

Trying to recall the name of a manga. Pretty sure it's unlicensed. I recall it involved a rampaging giant bear, a overly violent lead character, and a Japanese Michael Jackson(?). It was all a bit nutty. Sound familiar at all?

Hi, I can't seem to remember the title of an adult manga or anime that left an interest in my head a while ago (I can't remember which it is).

The plot follows a girl who came crashing in the main character's (a guy) apartment and fainted; she carried a note with her stating that the boy needs to ejaculate on her in order for her to survive. The boy has no choice but to help her out. As the story goes on the boy is required to do many things with her, obviously including sex. The atmosphere to the manga/anime was very tense and thick, and the artwork was beautiful.

I also remembered that there is also a third character that supposedly likes the male protagonist, and throughout the anime/manga, the protagonist engage in sexual activities with both these women.

P.S The manga is not SekaxSeka, as someone pointed out to me, and thank you in advance. Exclamation

Hell there, forumites! Long time lurker, first time poster here. I found this picture a couple of days ago and I just can't figure out which manga it's from! I've been asking around quite a lot and I'm still drawing blanks. Figured I might as well put it up on here and see if anyone knows.



Sadly, this picture is all I've got...

[EDIT: I asked a friend and he said it looked like something from a Hojo Tsukasa manga. His guess was City Hunter, but I haven't read enough of that manga to know weather he's right or not.]

Probably that is from a work by Kadoi Fumio.

Alright, thanks! Do you have any examples of manga made by Kado because I can't find anything =/
