I have always been a shojo junkie, that and a sub of magical girl/robot/post apocalyptic/record of a lodoss war fan. :P
Anyways I watch Say 'I love you' and B gata H kei and fell in love, the problem I am facing is that I am an old school anime fan and I have struggled with all this new stuff and themes, the release of SM Crystal brought me here and I am loving it!

So here is what I am asking,

Is there an anime you would recommend that isn't so child like that may have a touch of mature, slice of live, shojo? I am open to any orientation? I am really just looking for that cross of B gata H kei and Say 'I love you' with a great story and not just an abrupt ending, does this exist?

Thank you for your time. Look forward to hearing from you all!

The currently airing /blue-spring-ride seems good so far. Can't tell how it will end yet.

Also for one that is mostly comedic, but still shoujo, the current /monthly-girls-nozaki-kun is quite good as well.

For something complete, try /chihayafuru. That has two seasons. It starts young, but quickly matures.

I haven't seen Say 'I Love You' so I'm not sure what you'd get if you crossed it with B Gata H Kei...

But you could look into /my-little-monster and /chihayafuru.

Well if you're looking for mature, i would recommend Natsuyuki Rendezvous. It's josei.

I don't know about My Little Monster and Blue Spring Ride being that mature, definitely not as mature as Say, I Love You.

Thanks, That looks like what I am searching for in a way!

There is so much anime, It's overwhelming. I've been out of the same since 2008 O.o

If you really want a mature and realistic shoujo, try out Nana. It even has an additional theme of music in it.

Hi there,

I see you've gotten a few solid answers, I will leave those up but I will have to close this thread as we do not allow personal anime recommendation threads.
Please use the Recommend me an Anime thread in the future.
