Unrequited love can be painful in real life, but when it comes to manga, it's a topic that's rife for drama. If you can't get enough of manga characters pining for each other and dealing with the pain of being scorned, this list of the best unrequited love manga is just what you need.

Scum's Wish begins with two high school students, Hanabi and Mugi, who are in love with their teachers and seek solace from the pain of unrequited love in each other. Little do they know that they are far from the only ones experiencing this - both have friends who love them just as fervently as they do their teachers - meanwhile the teachers have romantic problems of their own. Honey & Clover is just as complicated, depicting the various unrequited passions of art students.
