Man, Fist of the North Star is one of the best romance stories ever.


Also, most of the Shöjos are the same and there are millions (most over exploited genre of manga).

It isnt in shoujo genre and the romance isn't really girly in my opinion either so lets drop that..

And i know that most shoujos look alike but i just read one that wasn't like that so lets dicuss the better stories in shoujo oke thats why i made this thread

The best anime IMO and in a lot of other people's opinions that is a shoujo would be Clannad/After Story. After watching that, you probably won't feel a lot of emotions for a long time because they'll all be used up from watching it. It'll make the manliest man cry. Go watch it.

Ah, Clannad. That was originally a visual novel which has received a lot of positive reviews.

Hrrm, personally, I don't have any favorite shoujo series but one's that I haven't minded reading (and continuing/finishing) are: Beauty Pop, Girl Got Game, and Crimson High.

i thought clannad was a harem so i totally avoided it. i so hate harems (not reverse harems duh)

Rio likes them sport themed shoujo's?
I was going to read beauty pop havent found the time yet :/

Im trying out reading some mature-romance manga's Hohohoho~:cat_ohoho: (and no not for ' that ' part but im kinda getting fed up with average shoujo stories)

I was going to read beauty pop havent found the time yet :/ lol Not really. It's more like they haven't annoyed me so much that I had to stop in the middle of the series. I've read things like Skip Beat, Meru Puri, L'Corda d'Oro, Nana, Kare Kano (His & Her Circumstance), Ouran Host Club, Hana-Kimi, Fruits Basket, Peach Girl, Fushigi Yugi, etc etc but like I said.... I kind of got tired of the series.

Maybe I should try more mature titles like you. The problem is finding them though.... I mean, there's so much crap to filter through. U_U

Byakuran
03-29-2011, 01:20 PM
yeah one of the mature ones:

Flowers of Evil is mature :/
Wolf Guy (its more for guys imo but it does have romance)
Also some other but im 2 tired to name them =__=

Ive also read other shoujos who like got recommended to me (i ask other people around xD)
Cat street, koukou debut etc.

I must learn of these shojos, tell me what else do you recommend?

Ozzaharwood
03-29-2011, 11:01 PM
O____O

That's rare. Another guy who wants to get into them, huh. I suggest starting off with the generic ones because they are good at first, but gradually get worse. That way you'll appreciate the good ones more. Or you can just jump into the good ones. Whatever tickles your pickle. You may not even like them, but here are a few to watch/read:

Clannad / Clannad After Story
Itazura Na Kiss
Kare Kano (Never seen it, heard it was good)
Chobits

My list sucks but there are literally hundreds of the things, just search google for the best and you will usually get good results.

You should read 20th Century Boys. I force Tzvety and Joao, and now their lifes have changed forever.

Bya, you should go and search my list of mangas (I think I post'd it in some where of the site) in there you can find a lot of cool mangas.

20th century boys has giant robots, evil cults, lazer guns, post-apocalyptical(ish) worlds and the matrix.

But then again, so do most shoujo manga, don't they, so it's nothing new. :)

I can't stand it since one of the main characters shares a second name with me.

Urrgh.

You can't NOT watch a good anime because of a name man.

DrPumpkin
04-03-2011, 07:37 PM
No, but seriously, I really, really can't.

The name is thrown around so much. Oh, so, so much.

And also, the character itself makes me cringe.

I haven't read much Shojo lately, but I really enjoyed the first part of Fushigi Yuugi. The second part got a little silly...and redundant.
Plus, I was pissed when

she killed off my favorite character, Nuriko.

Anyone else read it?

I started both Fruits Basket and Red River...but never finished them.

I don't know if these are considered Shojo or not, but I also loved Angel Sanctuary and Godchild cause they were fucked up, but still had "pretty boys." :P

And of course, Sailor Moon :cat_shylove:

Byakuran
04-04-2011, 09:24 AM
Fruits basket sucked, well not really but the anime pissed me off so much i mean like with hell ' let go fade into the sunrise together ' And the ending was typical... but then again most shoujos are the same :/

Bishounen laaaawl,, all what shoujo is about :'D ,,

Also Pumpkin is yur second name Tamaki :D? Usui?

DrPumpkin
04-04-2011, 09:49 AM

Kuragehime.

The ending is a bit of a letdown, but this is one of the funniest shoujos (it's really josei) I've watched. I really hope for a second season soon. :c

Chobits <3
Azumanga Daioh <3


Also, this one's not shoujou in the least, but anyone who likes very emotional, sad things would do well to watch Elfen Lied. I absolutely defy you to go through that series and not be sad at the ending. Makes me cry every time.

I already beat your challenge. Although I love elfen lied btw nudity and gore warning for those who haven't watch/read it

Re-watching Toradora after a year or so, and it is still awesome.

Also, Key Animation is never a let down, watch their stuff. (Clannad, AIR, Kanon(2006))

i'm not since they confuse me... Are there any guys in those worlds? or is it just girls who love girls? are all girls like that?

Strawberry Panic so confused me with those questions.

but i can try give it a shot. if its worth watching.

Sylux
04-13-2011, 02:02 PM
They're pretty much just lesbian comics or cartoons, nothin' to be confused about. Just like shounen-ai's. There aren't many chicks is shounen-ai's, so not a lot of dudes in shoujo-ai's.
