Kimi Ni Todoke (honestly it seems to me that the bgs get more screentime and some of the scenes are just way too slow! )
Mars (I'm probably going to be hated for saying this. but for some reason I just couldn't get past the third or was it the fourth volume. I keep hearing it's awesome but I fail to see it)

I kind of don't tend to like the all too mainstream "Oh my God. He's so popular, he's so cute/cool and he'll never notice someone like me." and then the guy is all 'pretending not to like her' but then giving out pretty obvious signs otherwise. >.<

I could never understand the appeal of skip beat. It became an overblown party of cliches with characters that lack appeal. I don't mind cliche stuff but if it continues like a cycle again and again for 200+ chapters, it gets really old. And I don't know if the heroine is really that strong; I'd call her opinionated with an annoyingly loud voice and attitude.

The shoujo I truly hate though is itazura na kiss. I can't stand the guy. The girl chases him but gives up 3-4 times but in his arrogance he convinces her to try again, only to go back to hating her every single time. Finally he gets with her but never bothers to explain why even though he liked her all this time, he never went for it. Even when they're married, he acts like this distant figure who is like "oh, you're still here?" or "do you want something?"

Kaichou wa maid-sama was good until chapter 50ish. After that it just got old. Same for Usotuski lily. Not usually for gender benders but the characters were fun, gags funny, and the cross dressing incidents were entertaining...until like chapter 40. Unlike the mangaka behind kaichou though, who knew when to end it before it truly got bad, she just continued with lazy, filler like material with too many chapters about the side characters and 4-koma comics.

I like special A in small doses. Their idiocy is funny and Kei is so awesome when he's jealous. It's great that although he has everything, he has eyes for this dense girl with a lot of spirit.

Black bird..no. I'll take a weak naive girl but I won't take a weak,naive girl without a personality. Stepping on roses and faster than a kiss were good for a while but the endings absolutely sucked. I wouldn't have read those two if I knew how it ended. They were so bad, they ruined the entire manga.

Definitely Hiyokoi. I don't need to give a reason.

Black Bird - got boring
Kaichou wa maid-sama - got boring
Special A - It's just stupid in my opinion
Shugo Chara! - Hated the concept. Never read it.
Koi dano Ai dano - I just can't even attempt this one.... I think I'd have to be given something I want in order to ever attempt it.
You're So Cool - ridiculous
Moe Kare!! - Pretty much anything by IKEYAMADA Go irritates/bores me.
Ingènuo - Couldn't get past a chapter


Kimi Ni Todoke and Suki tte Ii na yo started getting boring chapters ago so even though I liked the beginnings I don't think I'll ever finish them.

Kaichou wa Maid-sama - I didn't find it boring, but I was irritated by how Misaki is supposed to be a strong female character yet needs rescuing by Usui at every turn - and even more irritated by how people buy into this. I was also irritated by Usui's perfection & how he has no life outside of Misaki, also by the

10-year separation at the end.


Lovely Complex - Bored me, couldn't get past a few chapters. I read another by the same author in full and didn't like it either, but I've forgotten the name.

Kimi Ni Todoke - Boring, couldn't get past a few chapters.

Good Morning Call - The most formulaic, vanilla shoujo I've ever encountered (though I'm not sure that it's popular/well-known).

Kyou, Koi wa Hajimewasu or anything by this author.

Teacher's Pet or anything by this author.

Anything that, like the two above, feature an aggressive guy who rapes/abuses the girl. With the possible exception of Haou Airen since I view that less as a romance than

'girl gets Stockholm's syndrome and is utterly destroyed by relationship, enter tragic ending'
. That being said, I'm not going to re-read Haou Airen.

In Ouran's defense, I love it. smile The mangaka does have a cluttered style but that doesn't bother me.

Popular shoujo I dislike.... let see... Vampire Knight is my first answer^^"
. I don't know why, maybe it just don't suit my taste, so I drop it asap when I found out the main lead is more and more irritating for me. I wonder why people like this manga very much.... Well, but each person have a different taste, so maybe that's why^^/


Next, perhaps Uwasa no Midori-kun (this is somewhat popular in my place) ^^" But this one... I dislike the ending, because the main lead isn't end up with the one I want. I just feel so empty. Some of my friends do feel the way I feel. So, this one is totally because the main lead end up with the different person.

I'm only read scan when that book isn't published in Indonesia or I just can't borrow that book because the rent-book-store is moving faraway from my house.

I love reading first then buy it after I know the story ♥
