You should read Kitchen Princess, OP. It'll make you feel all warm and fuzzy.

Some good long form shoujo manga(that I've read):
>Kareshi Kanojo no Jijou
>Meteor Methuselah
>Cardcaptor Sakura
>>
>Vampire Knight
>the equivalent of Twilight in shoujo
Yeah, try something decent.

Some cute on-going ones are Kimi ni Todoke and Dengeki Daisy.
As for the completed ones, try classics like
>Kare Kano
>Marmalade boy
>Mars
These 3 are school settings.
>Paradise Kiss
This is like a SOL
>Red River
>Basara
These last two are adventure type things, and quite long, but found them extremely enjoyable.

Speaking of mangas, I've been trying to find another nice genderbender series. I'm currently reading both Ame Nochi Hare and Boku Girl, and I'm trying to find something along those lines. Could any of you throw out some suggestions for me to look into?

Good shoujo manga:

Hirunaka no Ryuusei
Kimi ni Todoke
Love So Life
Taiyou no Ie
Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun
Warau Kanoko-sama + the sequel

+Acceptable art
+Non-annoying characters
+Waifu tier MCs
+Standard love parallelogram plots

If you don't like shojou high school drama then these won't interest you. But if you've tried other series and been repulsed by the bland MCs and spider appendages these might improve on that.

pic related, the MC from Taiyou no Ie

Read some Last Game anon. It'll cheer you up.

>>100789126

Check out Ao haru Ride if you are into that. Latest chapters have me wanting to punch a hole through my computer screen

Is that even a good thing?
>>
>>100788867

Kimi ni Todoke is everything wrong with shoujo romance in one single series.

Is there any good josei/shoujo where it's a bit smutty and there's no 100+ chapters of hand holding shit?

I guess what I want is something like Hapi Mari.
>>
>>100789405
I don't. Vampire Knight is enough NTR for anyone to suffer through to know that they don't like it.
>>
>>100789449
...if you haven't read much shoujo, maybe. It's nowhere near the worst shoujo has to offer, and outside of the main couple, it even approaches good at times.
>>
>>100789472
I'm pretty sure you're WAY more likely to find couples actually fucking in shoujo than in shounen romance series.

I had to put it on hold after chapter 8 when the MC decided to pursue main boy even though pure innocent friend-chan is interested

Is there a lot of NTR? I wouldn't mind seeing certain characters get rekt

And whats with the fixation on necks and sweat?

>>100789449

It's only fault is that it's WAY too naive and innocent. It might be a pretty big fault, but nothing else is very wrong with it.

Recommend me some mangas where the qt main character gets hurt/wounded and is saved by her love interest.

I saw one of these a while back, can't remember the name of it but it involved some poor girl who's name started with M attending a high school with rich kids and the biggest dick of the cool group of the 4 richest assholes falls in love with her.

Bad things happen to her pretty much every volume, and I love it.

Yeah, this is honestly the major problem I have with it. I quite liked KnT when it first came out, but someway along the anime's airing I started to dislike it. I found myself routing for the bitchy one instead (Kurumi, I think?) and found myself incredibly frustrated at how sweet and sugary everything was. I think I got diabetes. I was extremely pleased when I found out Heroine Shikkaku existed, a manga that practically revolves around Kurumi trying to break the cutesy shoujo couple apart.

>>100789697
It's fucking excellent. Definitely one of the best. Also one of the best selling manga of all time but like another anon said, it's been on hiatus for years since the mangaka is ill. I think it got really frustrating towards the part where she left it on hiatus, but it's still one hell of a ride. Anime is great. Madhouse put a lot of work into it, especially with the music.

>>100791313

The main cast is so completely, utterly and hopelessly unlikable it boggled my mind. It wasn't even some big bullshit going down that threw me away from it. I just... stopped reading in the middle of a chapter and never looked back.

Oh, and while reverse harems and rivals in love are staple in shoujo romances this one executed the old tropes in a really bad way.

What's that long shoujo that finished recently? I can't recall the name for the life of me but it was generic as fuck. Hero was a douchey bad boy with a sob story, girl naive but homely and caring. Towards the end hero got knocked down by a car (hilarious shit) and there was a forced love triangle, all in the last ten chapters or something.

It sold really well and I could have sworn it was going to get an anime, but it got two crappily animated OVAs instead.

Eh, start with Taiyou no Ie or Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun. Kimi ni Todoke and Love so Life might be a bit too sweet/naive.

Otakus have their tsunderes but Japan's deeply rooted gender roles always put the male on the power position. The tsundere can't never hurt the male lead on a physical or emotional level, she's just a cute toothless puppy, The violence is played for laughs. Shoujo violence is more realistic, the male lead is always in the power position and the violence is played as drama; the male lead can hurt the female lead and he constantly do it. That's kinda creepy but maybe it's just because I'm a guy

Why don't shoujo manga try anymore? There's nothing good running at the moment except for Sukitte. I'll throw Kuragehime in too even though it's josei.

Hirunaka no Ryuusei = country girl comes to city, sensei + kuudere boy love interests, nice appearing but conniving bestfriend

Kimi ni Todoke = pure girl, popular boy; side characters are more interesting

Love So Life = hard working orphan girl, age gap, childcare (two twins, girl is babysitter)

Taiyou no Ie = another orphan girl, troubled family dynamics, all characters likeable

Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun = autistic main boy, smart but cold MC; MC's best friend is really cool

Warau Kanoko-sama = main girl is watamote + 8man; she observes people and susses out social dynamics

The problem for discussing shoujo is that its readers, often females, tend to disregarded the creepy factor because the male lead has a sad past or some bullshit so it wasn't really rape, domestic abuse, bullying, etc. I admit fanboys aren't better (see any waifu thread)

A lot has happened since then. The bridge stuff happened in like 2005/2006 when the new anime aired. Since then director's crazy as fuck waifu (forced engagement) found out he was a pedo by seeing all the school mementos she sent her kindly 'benefactor', put two and two together and flipped the fuck out. Went all Rosmary's Baby on her and tried to frame her for stealing a ring and everything.

They admit their feelings for each other on a cruise (Maya is 18 or 20 at this stage), and they're about to get engaged, I think? There's still problems with the crazy waifu though. Maya's ex-boyfriend pops up from time to time. Something about Ayumi too.

There's no raws or translations from that period, everything available online is from 2010 or so meaning there's a five yearish gap.

No no, sorry, it's the manga called "Kanojo ni Naru Hi Another" (it's not actually a sequel, just another story set in the same world), the second chapter was just released, it's good.

Shoujo love interests are massive pieces of shit because patriarchy. Seriously.

HYD's mangaka wanted Rui to win da tsukushi but the fangirls loved Domouji too much so they basically forced the mangaka to make him the love interest. Rui was the real alpha male with the superior genes.

It's the same as with shounen tsunderes. Lots of people like that stuff.

Yeah, that was pretty dumb, I can't defend that. Still found it amusing since it's just an exaggerated joke.

Pretty much.

Translations are going at a snail's pace too. They're still at the Crimson Goddess arc with Maya and Ayumi training in the mountains. The language isn't even that hard (shoujo so there's furigana and shit) so I've no idea why there's months between each chapter.
>>
>>100793359
The apologising only referred to his disappearing act after they left the school.

It went from interesting SoL romance to interesting fantasy romance to well, a lackluster ending.
All with great art and a very likeable heroine.

>>100793439
This. I can't stand female tsunderes at all. Male ones are far more likeable.

A shoujo that I would recommend to the male a/nons is Otomen. Male MC likes cute shit, but he has to put on a manly front for his mom, but he secretly wishes he could be a cute little girl. Also his love interest looks like Rukia.

Ouran High school Host Club is also really fun.

And there is Skip Beat that would be a fucing masterpiece is the shitty romance with Ren wasn''t such a drag.

Also my fav shoujo atm is a shounen... It's very beautiful, it's about koto playing and the romance is great.
>>
>>100793442
Kuroshitsuji was boring no plot
and Junjou Romantica was too gay for me. Loveless was much better in this regard.

(Combini-kun is also good, but it's not really shoujo, just BL. All the NSFW stuff is saved until the end, though.)

Fakir was a miracle of the universe. Tolerable female Tsunderes are rare.

Vampire fucked her and left her pregnant with the grey-haired faggot when he went off to die. They proceeded to have a platonic relationship, fucking at least once over however long their lives were.
MC then decided to kill herself to bring back the vampire.

Vampire faggot won.

It's probably not shoujo, but Miman Renai has kind of a shoujo artstyle/vibe.

Also Fujoshi Rumi was pretty good. The main girl is pretty dense, but thankfully there is a second couple in it rather than a love triangle situation.
>>
>>100793755
Fakir was moe as well. All of the Tutus were, actually. One of those rare series where everyone is shockingly, completely different than how they're first presented. I thought Fakir and Rue were total assholes and couldn't stand them at first. Towards the end they became my absolute favorites in the series.

I really liked reading this one. Good art, Ayuzawa is waifu tier and I never found Usui's gary stu-ness annoying.

>>100793173
Also there's more money on shounen/seinen. There are only like 3 or 4 shoujo/josei titles in the top 50 of manga sales, the rest are shounen/seinen. Regardless the common believe, Basugay and similar stuff are technically "shounen".

I don't know which boy you're referring to but, I agree, it isn't Nana.

Hopefully her brother gets involved in the story at some point though.

She's black hair, it gives the blondefags an advantage. Shoujos often do contrasting hair colour for their OTP. Not always though.

>Luckily there is no worst boy in this mango.
I'm not saying he's bad but Nana is my least favourite.

>>100796370

I did wonder if one of them would turn out gay or not, but he certainly doesn't want to go after her, agreed. He could just be really calm but that does seem unlikely. So who will he win?

Ayumi is a very likable rival too. At first you'd expect her to be the typical oujo, laughing through her curls but she stands up for Maya and has shit loads of respect for her. Best girl.

This is just gender roles at work and appealing to the demographic. Boys are taught to try to "earn" their love interest while girls try to change the bad boy. When was the last time you saw a male MC try to remove the tsundere bitchiness from a love interest? He usually just ends up falling for her because she shows a cute or vulnerable side.
