The art from series like Tokyo Mew Mew or Gentlemen's Alliance or Boku Kimi is like your typical, large eyed shoujo. And those types of un-anatomically correct series are what I consider badly drawn. But other shoujo series like Amatsuki is what I consider drawn good. (And Amatsuki is BEAUTIFUL. )

I find that most of them look the same, well, You can see some differences but I find they all look very similar to each other.

But it depends on the art and drawings, some are just bad and some are actually well drawn.

A work intended and primarily written for females. Usually involves a lot of romance and strong character development.

Um...yeah, there are A LOT of badly drawn manga. So, so, so many -- that's why it's getting harder for me to get into much shoujo.

Not "badly drawn", but a lot of them are drawn in a style I don't like.
Same with the ultra-macho seinen and shounen.

I like moe, not gritty. If I wanted gritty, I'd watch American cartoons.

Which American cartoons would you consider "gritty"? The vast majority of anything animated is going to be for children/tweens/teens.
Maybe a show like the Maxx or Spawn or...metalocalypse...oh well...you said it wasn't the type of show you watched anyway. My point being I think there is a lot more in terms of "grit" in Japanese anime/manga.

Oh yeah, vagabond is so not shojo, great art style though...
I think a lot of shojo is pretty similar looking, but maybe I'm just biased. (Well I am, and I think it looks stupid)

Some... mostly & maybe.

Some are drawn well, some aren't. Most of the guys look like chicks or intensely feminine in Shoujo manga and their eyes take up like half their face.
