Hi, I am looking for good shoujo manga, or any manga in general. I have a reading list that is so big I can't pick out which ones I want to read. It is a public list, so would you mind looking at it and telling me manga that you really like and think are worth reading. Also, if you have any suggestions of manga not on my lists then that is cool too, but I have looked through just about every category I like.

Please save me from chronic boredom.

Are you using your reading list as a wish list, or have you actually started reading all these series? If you'd started reading them already, I'd have thought you'd know which ones you want to continue reading.

But anyway. Depends on your tastes (judging by your ratings, our tastes are sometimes similar, sometimes very different), but I recommend:

Bitou Lollipop
Boku no Chikyuu o Mamotte
Crimson Hero (it's now complete)
Hachimitsu to Clover
Kaze Hikaru ***highly recommended***
Kiss & Never Cry
Mizu ni Sumu Hana (I scanlated the last vol. of this one)
Nodame Cantabile
Orange (TAKANO Ichigo) ***highly recommended***
Otogimoyou Ayanishiki Futatabi
Saiunkoku Monogatari (to be honest, I rather like the anime of this one more, though the animation quality can look quite poor)
Taiyou no Ie
Yume Miru Taiyou

Out of the ones in your reading list that haven't been rated, I liked:

Akuma no ororon
Sennen no yuki
Tsubasa o motsu mono
Smargs won't sing
Ingenuo (although I dropped it cos it became a bit too sappy)
Issho ni neyou yo

Now other recs...

Based on the fact you rated I wish... , Saver and Love in the mask highly, you may like Snow drop it sometimes has its typical manwha scenarios, but I really liked the relationship between the couple and the whole star crossed lovers thing as well.

You rated skip beat highly so you could read Tokyo crazy paradise which was the manga-ka's previous work. Arakure is also a good one in the yakuza category.

You rated Natsume yuujinchou fairly highly so maybe The scarlet chair by the same author and Dramacon by the same author as Nightschool is a must read ^^

Coelacanth, Issho ni neuyo yo and Orange - all of them already mentioned earlier.
Orange was going to be great, but for what I've read it seems like it's on (maybe permanent) hiatus.

If Iím upset, hold me and tell me how beautiful I am.
If I growl, retreat to a safe distance and throw chocolate.

Thanks, I use my reading list as a wish list partly, because that way I can see what manga have been updated and then give them a go. I will have a look at everything you have told me about.
