Bisco Hatori's Sennen no Yuki successfully took the usual romance and comedy you would see in any shoujo manga and combined it with a more serious back story for its main heroine, giving the reader a unique emotional experience that made for one of the better shojo manga around. Despite its great story, Sennen no Yuki is often overlooked due to the 11-year publishing gap between volumes 2 and 3 and it doesn't get as much love as Bisco Hattori's other major series, Ouran Koukou Host Club. With its supernatural romance, the comedic banter between its two main characters, and the serious nature of the character's backstories, Sennen no Yuki gives you a unique reading experience. While you won't find a manga that has all the things that make Sennen no Yuki great, there are a lot of manga that capture some of the better aspects of the series. Today we are going to look at six manga similar to Sennen no Yuki.
