How long ya talking? Red Lion is 37 chapters long, Zodiac P. I. is 11 chapters. Then there is the one-shots series. . ..
I'm not lost, just locationally challenged. There is a slight difference.

Which genres do you like? And do you want on-going or completed series?

If you like shounen adventure, then you will probably like 666 Satan (Also known as O-Parts Hunter). It has 76 chapters - but 19 volumes, so I'm guessing it might be too long. Saiyuki is a great shounen adventure manga as well, with more shoujo-ish art (and bishounens!). It has 55 chapters collected in 9 volumes.

If you like slice of life comedy, then you should enjoy Azumanga Daioh. It has 60 very short chapters collected in 4 volumes.

If you like one-shots, then I got a few you might like:
Hotarubi no Mori E - By the mangaka of Natsume Yuujinchou. It's one volume containing 4 one-shots. All the one-shots are shoujo romance/drama, very cute without being too fluffy.
Hotel is probably one of the best one-shots ever. In just one chapter, it tells the story of our world, after humanity has self-destructed.

All these series are completed and can be found scanlated. Be more specific if you want more recommendations :)

How about Cat Street?

This is the 3rd time me mentioning Cat Street in the Manga section. Why? Because it's the only one I know and I want to contribute to the forums. :O

I'd say it depends on the type of manga.
if you want shojo, thats short, try Absolute boyfriend. its short, i dont remeber how long it is exactly, but its really short considering and has a very sad ending.
or kamichama karin, it only has 7 books.

umm hmm.. so far theres an ongoing series called NORA. I only have volumes 1 and two. its about a dogdemon whos leaves for the human world, its intresting.

ever heard of jim henson's the labyrinth? well after you watch that movie, theres a manga of what happens next called "return to the labyrinth" about what happens to toby.its only 4 volumes long and the fourth volume will be out in august.
