Just asking. I really enjoy Shoujo like Dengki Daisy and Kimi ni Todoke.
Are there any other's that you guys have found that are worth trying?

Shoujo manga is about the only thing i read.
Kimi no todoke is my favorite, and i'm currently reading Dengeki Daisy ^^

Try Watashi ni xx Shinasai!. It's aimed for younger people, but it's still good.
Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo is not shoujo, but the romance in it is really good
Also, last game and Horimaya is probably worth checking out too.

I would say that outside of Japan, shoujo is a lot more common for guys to read/watch. Much like girls are interested in a lot of more shounen-oriented titles as well. Guess it's because there is less gender disparity?

It also depends on the shoujo -- there are many that have more of an ambiguous appeal. But others are "really shoujo" in an unbelievable and saccharine way that aren't popular with guys.

Dengeki Daisy started out ok, but just became a mess.
Kimi ni Todoke is 10/10 would love again.
Horimiya is a must read.
Love so Life is a MUST READ.
Last Game is very good.
Dame na Watashi ni Koishite Kudasai is pretty good but slow to update.
3 Gatsu no Lion... Well I don't know where this is going, but read it anyway.


That's a start for you.

It really depends.

I like all of Clamps stuff. I like Peach Girl, Ouran Host Club, and even a bit of Kaichou wa Maid-sama. On the other hand things like Sukitte Iina Yo just bored the hell out of me.

Oh yeah, I really like Love Lab. That one is awesome.

I guess I just kind of hate those "I need a knight in shining armor" type of mangas.

I don't really care about demographics that much, but why can't we see a lot of strong, young women as the main characters? If shoujo can be non-slice of life drama, then sign me up.

Well, a lot of CLAMP's manga aren't Shoujo. For some examples...

xxxholic and Chobits are Seinen, though the latter is many times mistaken as Shoujo because of its girly style and story.

Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle is Shonen.

Cardcaptor Sakura and Magic Knight Rayearth are Shoujo.

Clover is a Shoujo that can also be seen as a Josei.

Tokyo Babylon is Shoujo for older readers, and it has prominent Shonen-ai. Its sequel, X, is a Shoujo that is always mistaken for being a Seinen (for its graphic violence and stark setting), Josei for its mature storyline and adult implications or even yaoi even though there are het and lesbian couples as well.

A lot of CLAMP mangas (if not all) feature heterosexual, lesbian and gay couples or implied couples/love as well as things like age difference, unhealthy/abusive relationships, human/non-human...etc. I suppose there is something for everyone.

Fruits Basket. Always my answer. Also, Gakuen Alice and Kodocha are great shoujo romances, with comedy and drama.

Skip Beat!, Fruits Basket, Kare Kano, and Card Captor Sakura were four of my favorite manga as a kid 10+ years ago. I also enjoyed Kodomo no Omocha, Shugo Chara, and Full Moon wo Sagashite.

They're all classics in my book. All of these got anime adaptations too, and Kare Kano and Fruits Basket were especially good. Full Moon's anime had its own charm too, though it's more of a lighthearted AU with the same character's. And the CCS anime... we all know how popular that was.
