it'd also be nice to get some ace/aro manga that doesn't turn out this way tho. there are so many great stories to tell about asexual intimacy, and relationships... if anyone has recs, including het and yaoi, i'm all ears.
your best bet for actual aromantic series is isekais like tensei slime and honzuki. Ace though... nothing comes to mind.
I recommend Is Love The Answer?. It’s one volume and complete, with official translation coming out later this year. I haven’t read it but people on the aro/ace spectrum are gushing over finally getting some representation! Also check out the author, some of the other works have similar themes.
