On one side of the spectrum you got what this thread is all about: the shoujo genre. Waaaaaaay on the other side, all by itself, there's the epic classic Angel Sanctuary manga (and very short and limited OVA). Real shame. Angel Sanctuary is very good, and mold breaking, but heavily dated.

The fact that pretty much every main male is super nice, handsome, good at sport... the whole shebang.



You're completely exaggerating! Some of them are assholes, handsome, and good at sports. /sarcasm

That youtube clip kinda nailed why I can´t watch that kind of anime drama. What the japanese audience sees as romantic drama totally clashes with my western view of it, it´s just absolutely silly to me and the girls in these shows are total idiots while the guys are either insecure, goofy or just complete assholes.
Some of these Feeeeeel-shows make Dawson Creek and Beverly Hills 90210 look like pure gold.

I would love to see a wellwriten love story as anime that do not include high school settings, exchange students, young teens, moody MC, flowers around love-interest, clumsy dumb FC and accidential boob-grabs, pantyshots or stuff like that.

Good luck with that. One of my favorite recent romance stories in a manga was Girl Friends (yuri) and it still had some of that.

Yeah it´s almost impossible to find any cheese-free ones and yes I know alot of these shows is made for teenagers but since people of all ages watch anime in Japan it would´nt be such a bad idea to make a god love-story for ounce.

I don't know about the first one, but I think the second one may be Black Bird...Also known as one of the most sexist, degrading Shoujo mangas ever. Enjoy~


OH my, I read Black Bird long ago, how was it sexist?
Thinking about it now, a lot of shoujo mangas were sexist

I almost never read shoujo stuff because I don't enjoy the art style unless the plot really clicks with me.

Like, I know Shonen is like every pre-teen boys power fantasy and all. Is the same true of Shojo? Is that what many young females actually think about love and romance or whatevs?

They all want supermodel bad boys to treat them like shit. It's fine since the sex will be hot as hell tho.

Better build up your internet defenses and learn to take a joke there, kiddo.
