~~~I like action joseis alot especially karneval, replica, izayakaku and more. I like these because of the type of drawings the author does~~~ biggrin

Kimi wa Petto << I hated josei like hell until I came across this masterpiece, it made me open-minded.

To second other people-
Kimi Wa Petto- though I didn't like the ending.
Nodame Cantabile
Forest of Gray City
Vampire Girl by Fujiwara Kaoru. Short. Supernatural. There are vampires. It's one of my favorites.
Nana- though it *is* dragging on now, Paradise Kiss (technically shojo), and Last Quarter by Yazawa Ai
Dolis by Kusumoto Maki

On the lighter and sillier side-
My Darling My Flesh by Yoshihara Yuki
For the Sake of the Rose

also, in terms of mangakas

Fujiwara Kaoru: Vampire Girl is really good. She has also written a bunch of short story collections which aren't quite as good, but can be interesting: Fetish, Paradise, A Story of Long Ago, and Withdrawal Love

Kusumoto Maki: Dolis, The Funeral Procession of K, Mock Turtle Soup. A lot of it is sort of dark, artsy stuff, I guess...

Nina, My Love by Ikuemi Ryou is good.

Some people like Honey and Clover... I wasn't a big fan. Also not a fan of Midnight Secretary, Gokusen, or Suppli, though to each her own... Suppli sort of struck me as a less charming, less successful version of Kimi Wa Petto, though really the two lead characters aren't that similar, I guess. By which I mean, comparatively speaking, Sumire totally kicks ass. Everything I've read by Saito Chiho, including Waltz wa Shiroi Dress de and Honoka ni Purple (shojo) tends to read like a bad romance novel.

Helter Skelter is a good one, imo.

A Delicious Relationship has now become my ultimate favorite josei. It drags in the beginning then it heats up like a delicious beef consomme.

For some reason I'm so obsessed with Silver (FUJITA Kazuko)! It's fantastic, in my opinion. Yeah, the girl was/is sorta weak but she really does try to become stronger.I'll probably like another Josei more at some point... but right now Silver wins for me.

I haven't read a considerable amount of josei manga, but I loved:
Kabocha to Mayonnaise
Paradise Kiss
K no Souretsu

Helter Skelter is okay and I even previously thought that the art was ridiculously bad, but I became accustomed to it.

And Hyakki Yakoushou is intriguing, and some series of IMA Ichiko. Too bad I'm not in the mood to read the things in this demographic right now. (Currently, hunting for old shoujo/obscure seinen stuff).

Are You Alice?
Dawn - Tsumetai Te
Di(e)ce
Karneval

I think that's all.

Also, out of curiosity...am I the only one who hates Midnight Secretary *tried to read before, thought there was too much smut XD*?

Are You Alice?-interesting read
Heptagon -This one is actually my real favorite josei manga out of the other mangas I've read so far. The others don't really measure up to this one..in my opinion.
Usagi Drop-very cute/sweet


these are my josei favorites.

Petshop of Horrors - My first josei, and still my favourite by far.
di(e)ce
Deep Love - Pao no Monogatari - The only work of fiction that has ever managed to make me cry my eyes out.
+C: Sword and Cornett
Hyakki Yakoushou

I would like to say Karneval, but I'm afraid its plot isn't all that great. It is adorably cute, though smile

I loved Usagi Drop when the kid was still...well, a kid. After the time-skip, I didn't find it very interesting. I've read too many stories about high-school girls living in foster homes.

K no Souretsu isn't exactly the best, but it's one of the most unique things I've ever read, so it still deserves an honourable mention.

Quote from Mikashi

Of course you're not the only one! Midnight Secretary really sucks, imo...Too much smutty sex, too little story. I find all romance josei to be very boring, actually.

Pet Shop of Horrors because it's Pet Shop of Horrors

Paradise Kiss simply because the characters are so interesting and complex. Then again, I haven't read a LOT of josei, so...
