well the thing i hate most about shojos are:

- the girl's world always revolves in love
- the love at first sight scenes
- hate you first but then love you eventually
- the way the girl always gets the boy she loves
- the way the girls are too clumsy for her own good
- things where it ended up to be always favored to the girl
- where girlfriends fight over some guy
- girls always being too submissive towards the guy

and other things that make me want to puke sometimes. I mean, what i want to read are the things that could possibly happen in real life. if things are too favorable then the character losses her sense of reality. it could possibly even make the readers lose interest. It would be like some romance novels where the girl always ends up with the guy she aims for. well, that is my opinion at the least

Even if the girl is portrayed as "ugly" in the beginning, she always turns out to be the prettiest =.=

I hate it when:
~Girls are like angels, clumsy and nice, (like in Fruits basket)
~Main guy (almost in every manga) is rich, popular among girls but doesn't like them and falls in love with girl that is not popular at all and she even starts to hate him.
~Predictable endings!

Cliches. I HATE cliches, especially cliched characters. They really get under my skin.

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.




and they are somehow the strongest one


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 can tell Sailor Moon is gonna have a field day with you two. But that's OK, I'm a Sailor Jupiter fan myself, next to Sailor Mars.

My other problem with the genre besides the aforementioned cliched characters, is the total lack of super robot.

Oh hey, it's GunBuster: http://moeticjustice.blogspot.com/2007/02/us-gunbuster-dvds.html

How in shoujo reverse harem animes, the girl can NEVER EVER choose a guy to end up with. (though mangas can eventually get to that point, like Fruits Basket or Ouran)

i agree with everything.
the whole "girl gets all annoying/loud/and crap. is soo frustrating to look at. especially when they use those loud, obnoxious voices and are oblivious when ppl like them, and panic when things get intense. wouldn't it be better if sometimes the girl acted coy and flirted back with the boy?

so, to the people who agreed with me,,
do anyone of you know any anime that have girls the opposite of that, but its still a romance?
or an anime that has that kind of girl, but a little better?



The first time I saw Skip Beat! I thought it was one of those rare animes where the main character surpasses those annoying cliches. The begining of the manga has an almost identical story as that in the anime.
I think it's a bit of a parody, because Kyoko is at first almost like the usual shojo manga characters (sometimes even more exagerated), but she starts to hate that kind of life and changes quite a lot throughout the story.
I won't guarantee it has absolutely no cliches, but I think that is excusable, because those are hard to avoid in such a long plot.
Of course, if we're talking about parodies, we can't forget Ouran HSHC- that was especially made to make fun of these cliches.

Some of my pet peeves are that the girls are always dumb. She always needs the guys to help her with school work. I also hate that she's physically fragile, like she'll catch a cold or can't do something because it requires strength, and its always the guy that comes to the rescue. I also don't like how the main chara is always the pure and innocent one and how the guy feels that he needs to protect her.

*shakes head* nearly all shoujo anime is like that. But luckily there are a few that save the genre, like Skip Beat and Gentlemen's Alliance
