|Any good Josei out there

Kiss and Never Cry
This one is a seinen (Granted,I don't read much seinen/josei, so I can't say if it reads like one), but it was really good:
This one is a shojo, but I think it's not as mindless as a lot of shojo's out there:
Honey Bitte ...

I haven't read these since they are in Japanese, but just by reading the mangas, I think I might enjoy them:

|Do you like the sound of your voice?
(15 posts, 560 views) Posted: 7d 15h, 36m ago by catandmouse in Chatter Box
Whenever I hear myself speak in video and or recordings, I always think "Is that really my voice?" i don't like how it sounds, but I guess it might just be me being overly critical of it. ...
|Do you feel that fans hate the protagonist, but love the love interest too much?
(5 posts, 195 views) Posted: 8d 1h, 10m ago by catandmouse in Shoujo/Josei
As someone that's not to fond of shojo heroines, I don't think that fans are too harsh. I think it's more of the fact that people are tired of the same weak willed protagonist and then add the fact that the love interest is actually an interesting chara ...

I didn't vote because I didn't quite understand the question, but now that it's been clarified, I buy manga, maybe not as much as I used to, but I've imported manga from Italy and Singapore as well as Japan and Mexico. Last time I counted, I ...

The Sleepy Residents of Birdcage Manor- because I hate it when characters don't pursue thier dreams because of a girl/boy, and it seemed like it was going that way, so as they say "what you don't know doesn't hurt you" and I wa ...

I'm super picky about my shojo romances, and this is one series that I kept ignoring because the preview just didn't appeal to me, it sounded like such a typical shojo, but then I had the chance to read the first chapter and have watched about 13 episod ...

|'Typical' Shoujo Manga, a survey
(12 posts, 479 views) Posted: 48d 22h, 32m ago by catandmouse in I'm Looking For...
Ok, I just want to ask for a clarification: when you say shojo are you just asking about content or serialization?
The reason I ask this is because a lot of manga might seem shojo, or shonen, or seinen, etc, etc, but the magazine they are being serialized is not what it ...

One guy is straight until he isn't, and the "I just saw you and fell in love" trope, coupled with the forced sex=love.

Ok, so I'm planning on attending anime expo this year, and every year I say I'm gonna cosplay and end up not doing it.
I really want to cosplay as the Change of Heart yugioh card, but it seems this won't be the year for that either.
Anyway, I' ...

I think it's up in the air. Brazil is a favorite of many, but the game against Croatia left a lot to be said, and everyone thought that Mexico would be an easy opponent, and they only managed to tie them.
I like a lot of the underdogs that most likely won't go f ...

I don't read too much shojo, so I can't really say, maybe Love*com? The only other one I can think of that's long and I think it's good is Fruits Basket.
I was gonna say Natsume's Book of Friends, but that's not a romance sho ...

I don't read Japanese, so I am at the mercy of translations/translators. Recently I've encountered comments denouncing Tokyopop's translations, and it got me to thinking about a particular scene that happened in volume 3 of Legal Drug that I ...

I upgraded to a smart phone barely May '13 to an Iphone 4S. I didn't really like the Iphone 5S, so that's why I got the 4S.
