I dropped Black Bird and Switch Girl out of boredom.

I actually have a ton I'd love to rant about but these are the only ones I could recall:

Vampire Knight - too much drama it makes want to freaking rip my hair out. I mean, who does that in real life? The characters talk way too much for my taste, and I always imagine them being stabbed or shot while they're doing a monologue. There are a lot of conflicts that I can never come close to understanding.

Skip Beat - I don't hate this one, I actually like it a lot. But some character interactions annoy me too much, and the story is...very un-engaging IMO. I stopped reading after about 20 chapters.

Kyo Koi wo Hajimemasu - uhhhh, yeahhh....

Shinjo Mayu's works - not all, but usually the stories always involve forced sexual acts. It really makes me angry that each of the heroines in these repetitive plots insult common sense. The main guys are almost always these alpha male types that linger on the border of creepiness. no no

Black Bird - uhm, this is actually...a guilty pleasure for me. However, the main guy's over-possessiveness bothers me sometimes.

To an extent, Ouran High School Host Club - the pages are cluttered, and it's quite difficult to grasp the flow of events. But I think the plot's okay, and most characters are endearing.

Shugo Chara - I'm not even sure why I can't get hooked on this one. *shrugs* shy

Gakuen Alice - it started okey, then the plot just dragged on and on and on that I HAD to give up or I'll go insane.

Hwang Mi Ri's works - I dunno...maybe they all really feel ridiculous to me. Her art's not bad, but it doesn't suit my taste (wow, I'm such a picky b***h). wink

Kaichou wa Maid-sama - IMO, the story got boring over time.

Vampire Knight - I actually really enjoyed the beginning, up until
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
that arc where we found out that Kaname and Yuuki are siblings

but stopped soon after that for some reason that I can't quite recall right now. It had something to do with the uncle... I think.

Fushigi Yuugi - Now this is one manga that I really do not like, probably because "love triangle with bitchy love rivals" is something I absolutely avoid in not just manga, but novels as well. Girl betrays her best friend because she wants her guy? No. Just no.
I love the prequel, Fushigi Yuugi Genbu Kaiden though. Takiko is a lovely main character.

Black Bird - It keeps turning up in my search for new manga to read, but I just can't seem to get past the first chapter... Just isn't my type of manga, I suppose.

now Fushigi Yuugi had a ton of flaws, the horrible misuse of most of the Suzaku Warriors being the main one for me, but I thought it was pretty clear Yui betrayed Miaka not really because of Tamahome, but because of what happened (or what she thought happened) to her while Miaka was away. She was the one who felt abandoned and betrayed because Miaka was off with her new boyfriend while Yui was being violated.

She also probably felt a sort of "he's my savior" thing with Nakago.

All-in-all she just wasn't thinking very clearly and i found that reasonable enough..

I don't mean to say you can't hate FY as there are plenty of reasons to do so but far from Yui being one of the worst things about the series, I thougth she was one of the best.

I haven't read much shoujo (really not my thing), but I've always tried to finish a series that I started.
I abandoned Vampire Knight though. I'm glad I never got past volume 3.

MOE KARE and everything by this mangaka, I don't like the artc ause it's so childish and it's so cliche that made me drool while reading this

Kaichou wa Maid-sama was OK, and the art is good but it's brutally boring! And teh fact that the main guyw as too perfect.

Shinshi Doumei Cross BORING, PREDICTABLE, eyes are too big. And anything by this mangaka.

Hana kimi it was OK, but it's still boring up until the end. I dont know why did it end up having 100+ chapters. There is so much chapter that you can skip in here.

Strobe Edge iw was already good. I love ANDOU! And i don't even know why did rin fall out of love of her ex -_- it was still good though but the latter part were so disappointing none

Say i love you IT IS BRUTALLY BORING, SO TYPICAL, AND SO CLICHE. Nuff said.

S.A the guy was too perfect, and I dont like the anatomy.

Fushigi Yuugi boring, predictable, didnt like any of the characters.

Any Vampire story.
So cliché

As well as any popular shojo that doesn't have good art XD


Fruits Basket and Moe Kare (I agree)

Hwang Mi-Ri sigh has terrible art but her plots are sooo good...dilemma..

Gakuen Alice was cute at first but the art is really terrible =.=

Kaichou wa Maid-sama- just keeps going in circles

Skip Beat was nice for the first 100 chapters and then it got repetitive

Kinda think that shojo cannot be forever like Bleach and Naurto cause there is seriously no way to make it go in circles while it being good...
sad sad

I watched the anime and have read the manga (Say I love You). And all I felt was BOREDOM! I don't know why did it even got more chapters, it feels like it can end in just 2 volumes -_-

Wow I can't believe that many people has the same feeling with me.
I just need to quote all of it from others, to lazy to describe it one by one hehe

Quote from Miyuki_16

Quote from yamaken-dono
Suki tte Ii na yo -- I think I liked the first chapter? Then it just became a mess of poor smut and annoying textbook shojo cliches.

Black Bird -- It made up for what it lacked in depth and originality with storytelling. Then that jumped the shark so now it's just bad.

Kimi ni Todoke -- Yeah like everybody said, it gets boring. It's slow and repetitive.


Quote from Nemurenaiyo
ORESAMA TEACHER punched me in the guts. This manga is hilarious yet all there is to it is 90% of fighting, and the rest is comedy.


Quote from Calamansi
Dengeki Daisy- I've only seen one other person post this so I'm guessing the rest of y'all are fans (or haven't tried it)... don't attack me! I dislike the whole rescue running gag and the main characters lost my interest. I wish the girl would end up with the glasses kid (forgot his name) but I won't be reading the rest of the manga, so if by any minuscule chance she does, I won't be finding out.
Yumemiru Taiyou- Tche, landlord.
Tonari no Kaibutsu-Kun- Too many side romances.


Quote from unitedforeverxx
Kyou Koi wo Hajimemasu - I started reading it , but then the main lead got me pissed off for her personality . I don't even like the guy either . So I gave up on it .

Say I Love You - This was awkward for me . The girl was too strange that it bothered me when the guy actually liked her . I was hoping for something like the girl changing , but nothing like that happened . So I gave up .


I agree that Kaichou wa maid sama is getting boring, thanks god it's already ended biggrin

Everything by Minami Kanan and Shinjou Mayu
