Nothing! just kidding.

I hate when they have the EXACT SAME events in all the shojo mangas (example: field/sports day, festivals, getting trapped in a closet) Tho I must say, I enjoy it when I can't predict the ending, or it's really cute.

I also dislike it when girls never give up and guys treat that girl like trash. I mean come on, he's a jerk, move on!!!
Tho i particular cases, like Itazura na kiss, it worked perfectly.

I still love shojo manga tho. There are some that are spectacular in the end, so I read as much as I can. Any to recommend?

Oh, I also absolutely completely DESPISE when any of the characters are killed during the story. I mean, what the heck?!?! Even if it's realistic, it's annoying! (cough cough Kitchen Princess)

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



Sailor Moon and Miaka from Fushigi Yuugi were the two heroines I was mostly thinking of, actually. Both of them are OK when you don't have much experience with this sort of lead character, but you've seen it once, you've seen it a thousand times, so when you see another character like that it's just flat annoying.

I personally prefer Sailor Mercury. I like her ability to stay calm in difficult situations. Mars and Jupiter at least have unique personalities and can definitely take care of themselves, but Sailor Venus bothers me a little bit. She's kind of a loudmouth.

How the heroine can't get over her own friggin' problems. It's like: "Ohmygod! He looked at me! Ohmygod!"
