Exactly. Literally, as well. Except when the girl is supposed to be perfect and charming (like KareKano) (which usually isn't the case), it's the guy who's a genius and helps her not-flunk her grades. How stupid.

And they cry enough to fill the whole sewage system; and their guys/girlfriends still refer to them as one thing:Strong. WTF?!

Female main characters who are EXACTLY like all of the other main characters and try to pass them selves off as unique. You know, the stupid, ditzy, clumsy, and in general annoying as hell ones.

Lots of other stuff I'm not willing to list.

The romantic hero is almost always a self-absorbed smartass, but he'll always have all the schoolgirls fawning over him. I'll like to see a shoujo hero who's not a pretend model student/ aloof guy who is actually good at heart, for once.

I'm okay with ditzy and boisterous shoujo females, but I hate those who have no purpose in life other than pleasing/serving their love interests. The ones that annoy me the most are those who claim to be tougher than most girls, but are actually weak and completely submissive.

Actually what I dislike most about shoujo are the cliched and overused scenes. Like, the ones where the female protagonist gets harassed by a group of jealous girls, and the hero will step in suddenly to 'rescue' her. And the ones where the girl falls down, and the guy will bend over slightly and offer his hand to her. Also the ones where the shoujo hero moves overseas without warning, leaving the girl in anguish, but all the same he'll claim that it's for the good of them both, and act like he's some tortured, self-sacrificing hero.

The cheesy lines about claiming 'property' also bug me too... "I will make her MINE." "I will not share her, or hand her over to you!"

1. Situations could never happen (falling/catching/winningcompetionsmagically,etc)
2. Too cliche
3. Main character idiot/airhead/weak
4. Too much drama

Despite, all this I like shoujo anime, but I am very picky about it, I tend to hate ones with main characters who are weak, clumsy, and stupid, animes with too much drama/situations that could NEVER happen, and ones that are so predictable it's stupid.

Dumb girls and happy endings without hardship, like, oh suddenly the guy in love with the girl and THE END! It's like , oh, I knew it. That kind. Argh. And the guys must be those type of like very er... gentleman-ly. But in real life... okay, I would comment no more. And the girl's always the cute and clumsy one. Always get saves by the guy.. Not that I don't like shoujo animes, but I don't really like those that you can guess their endings.

EXACTLY!!! Everyone adores them despite them being such morons, and everyone seems to excuse all of their bad traits because "they have a big heart" or some such nonsense, despite the fact that none of them seem to be able to think farther than whatever unrealistic romance they're caught up in or their next meal.

I get annoyed with the whole main girl see the first hot specimen and makes it her sole duty to make him hers.
Also I'm getting over the overly bubbly looking cutesy art styles since I somehow know what to expect from the story.
That is why you must read Goong ;)

Shoujo is more for female audiences while shounen is for boys.
I believe shounen-ai is more like..boy-boy pairing o.O

pretty boring. yeah it's great but most shoujos out there have super similar plots/themes. i'm more into unique animes like most shounen animes. if the anime is funny and isn't the common love story then i would like it.
