When I go back and look at the Anime I've loved. The Shojo titles I've seen and liked are few and far between. Hakkenden is actually serialized in Asuka Ciel, which is a Shojo magazine. The beauty of Hakkenden, is that it's not overt Shojo, and really transcends the Genre. It's got enough action, plot, development, and good character design for fans that don't even like Shojo to enjoy.
