Generally, not only for shoujos..

The art is nicer, I think..
But problems are, sometimes the manga only have few releases and such..

For me all manga from the last 10 years are welcome. I haven't noticed huge art style changes in this time period.

It seems to me that these aren't really separate periods; I'd be hard pressed to tell how a manga published in the late 90's was substantially different from one published yesterday. Not like the distinct style differences between manga from the 50's, 60's, 70's, and 80's, each of which are different from the others and from modern shoujo. For myself I'd love the chance to read more manga from the 70's and 80's, but of course I also like modern manga.

What do you think makes these periods different from each other? Are there specific titles that are examples of each period?

2000-2005. Less moe.

Every time you think the most stupefying incident in this world already happened, there comes one more.

I think....that more mangas that came out a bit earlier than 2011 had more interesting storylines. Forgive me for saying this, but, most of the 2011+ titles I've read are kinda...repetitive. The pre-2011 ones had the advantage of being a little fresher.

Of course, art-wise the ones after 2011 are superior (for the most part). However, on the other hand, there are more MOE stuff (a genre which I still can't seriously like - hey, just my preference, I'm not judging), so the period before that gets points too. So yeah, maybe I'm kinda torn...

I don't really care about the art... but perhaps 2011+ is my fav. Since at this period, most of mangaka and publisher have a high standard of art and more variative art-style and plot. Talking about the plot, I don't judge by which period is better, this or that period. It depends on the title. ^ o ^

I'm only read scan when that book isn't published in Indonesia or I just can't borrow that book.

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

It's easier to compare when it comes to art, I mean DUH....
(but that's also base on different preferences)

Like smily_lois mentioned, Shoujos published in the year 2011+ had been very repetitive. School life drama vanilla blush blush... NOTHING NEW. NO CONCEPT AT ALL.

Hakuensha is probably the only shoujo magazine left that has diverse stories.
