Urg, I'm having a REALLY hard time finding good shoujo anime. I'm really looking for love triangles, a tough heroine, and of course HOT BISHES!!! XD Hahaha! Oh, and the anime has to be out between 2000 to present year.

For the plot, I don't really care...I'm fine with the aggressive guy vs tough heroine or gentleman-like guy chasing after the girl or whatever. I'm pretty cool with anything. I guess I would fit into the category of prefering ART than PLOT >_<

I don't even mind if anyone has less than 10 or MORE! hahaha

So far I've seen La Corda D'oro, Ouran High School Host Club, Nana, and...umm...geez...lots more but can't think of them. I'm really looking forward to Vampire Knight and Special A anime!!! Yeeesss!!! biggrin

Criteria - after 2000

Gokusen (it's josei tho; the male lead is somewhat a bishie)
Kimi Kiss Pure Rouge
Saiunkoku Monogatari
Tokimeki Memorial Only Love (-ahem-)
Ceres, The Celestial Legend

You can always lose time with the recent fanservice/harems or smth like Canvas2.

Shoujo dramas I find good - Ef: A Tale of Memories and True Tears.

You mean, in demographic profile? Well, I don't know actually. You could be right. By genre are romantic series.

Actually, Kimikiss, Ef, Tokimeki, and True Tears are not only seinen, but all based on hentai games (or at least dating sims). Yeah, they're romance-dramas, but that doesn't indicate whether or not a series is shoujo.

Fanservice/harems are also typically seinen or shounen (unless it's a reverse harem) for more or less obvious reasons.

I haven't wacthed many shojo anime so I can't give you a list. You have to try the Rose of Versailles anime. It's better than the manga and one of my all time favorites, though a bit old. In terms of characterization, psychological complexity and plot, not many anime can compare with it. There is one bishie but he's not a main character so don't let that bother you.

If you want something a little different with high production values and maturity, not the usual "romance anime", try Meine Liebe. It's a good one adapted from a female targeted dating sim game.

BTW, Clanned. Air, etc are shonen anime. Those that are adapted from dating sim games/visual novels are obviously for guys. And Looking Up at the Half Moon (I like it) is shonen too if anyone wants to mention it. It is adapted from a light novel published in a shonen magazine.

There's nothing wrong with guys liking shojo. Lots of girls like shonen and seinen. I am tired of the crap of liking shojo making you less manly or stuff like that. I don't see being yourself, liking whatever you want to like,and appreciating art styles, charaterization and stories have anything to be with being manly or not.
