Any non-sexist, non-One Piece manga recommendation? I'm looking for something without many volumes. Bonus points if it isn't marketed as "shonen", but otherwise anything should be fine. Thank you!

Not manga, but there's a web comic I enjoy a lot, UnOrdinary. Technically shonen, but quite nice.

There's Chainsaw man and Jujutsu Kaisen, they're sold as shounen but might as well be Seinen. Their representation of women is very cool.

Abandoning the male oriented stuff, i don't know if there's a manga but the Little Witch Academia anime is amazing.

The last few episodes of unordinary's last season were wild!

Now that I you make me think of it, there are a ton of not (so) sexist slice of life webtoons.

Anarasumanara is one of my favorites and only ~40 chapters long.

Yotsuba is a cool slice of life about a little girl being a kid. It was inspired by the author's daughter afair.

I've recommended a few manga in the past year in /f/anime too. Waves listen to me is a Seinen slice of life.

Yotsuba looks good! I guess I'll start with it and keep all the other suggestions for the future.

I don't know anything about these WebToons bit I'll also take a look at UnOrdinary.

Thank you all for the recommendations!

Been awhile since I watched Claymore (and only read one volume) but I don't remember anything particularly sexist in it.

Komi can't communicate is a nice slice of life about a girl whose social anxiety makes her completely non-verbal. It's very popular right now. I haven't read it but the few panel that have come my way seem very charming.

Oh! Teasing Master Takagi-san. Two young teenagers discovering love for the first time by an endless teasing competition. It made this old dogs heart feel young again.

There's also a concurrent sequel of their married life with their daughter.

I've read two or three stories by Junji Ito and I liked them, so I might look into some collections. Thank you for the idea!

I was also trying to find some "slice of life" mangas, but most of them seem to be problematic one way or another.

They're a slice of life by Junji Ito, he talks about his life with his wife and cats.

Yes, I understand. But sometimes it's nice to discover some "pure" stories that, at least, try to avoid the most common issues in media.

I've just read about the ending of Usagi Drop and it's sickening; I'd love to avoid things like that.
