I have an issue with KAMISAMA HAJIMEMASHITA (no offense to indulged readers of the following manga). It's a big hit among female readers, but I have to point out the fact that the romance department is moving TOO SLOW. Everybody is all 'hurrah' about the plot but it's unfortunate (to me) how the hero and heroine do not make any much progress in their relationship up till chapters 70 and beyond.

ORESAMA TEACHER punched me in the guts. This manga is hilarious yet all there is to it is 90% of fighting, and the rest is comedy.

Akagami no Shirayukihime

I've tried to read it... the first chapter.
Finished it, guessed what kind of manga is this and how it would turn out, and got bored.
I don't even like any manga by the same author (I've tried some of her manga, but... haha)

Julius Visconti is still the best captain.

This poll is highly subjective so I recommend all of you to read some titles first before you make any personal judgements. Now for the shoujos I don't like.

Mary Sue's mangas like:

1. Lady Georgie & Fruits Basket
2. Red River
3. Vampire Knight
4. Meru Puri
5. Card Capture Sakura

Kaichou wa Maid-sama, Fruits Basket, Vampire Knights, Love Berrish, Red River, Mars... etc?

And everything by Hwang Mi Ri.

My list:

Kimi ni Todoke - I can't relate with the characters plus the side character's romance is even more exciting than Kazekaya & Sawako.

Kaichou wa maid Sama - lacks substance & character development.

Meru Puri - It's too shotacon for me

Black Bird - Weak female lead

Other popular shoujo/josei I hate are "The One," "Nana", & "Paradise Kiss"
Those stories were too angsty for my own good. Plus I can't connect with their supposed realities.

I started at the beginning by sort of liking Black Bird, now I don't feel the same. It's probably because there's just too much drama.

There are a few of Hwang Mi-Ri's I dislike as well.
I read some but they tend to be about an overly violent and strong girl who resorts to punching her way out of her troubles. Also, the girl's love interest will almost indefinitely be an unbelievably arrogant yet somehow extremely popular guy who in addition will be adopted or really rich or something.

They are not especially unique in comparison to each other but I will admit that there are some that spark an interest.

Maybe Kyou, Koi Wa Hajimemasu, it probably should have ended once the protagonist

started dating.
And, there are just too many embarrassing moments for her, it makes me feel like running away and hiding away inside a box. mad

Well, my post will be a bit harsh, but please save yourself the pain of convincing me otherwise or arguing with me.

Kaichou wa Maid-sama!is this a soap? Like every development starts the same and ends somewhere the same.
Kamisama Hajimemashita same as above. Drop both after the first 10 chapters.
Faster Than a Kiss I usually like student-teacher relationship, but this is just annoying.
Love So Life the beginning is fine but now the naivety of the protagonist is getting on my nerve.
Akagami no Shirayukihime same as above. Not fond of the drawing neither.
Kareshi Kanojo no Jijou Somehow the plot and the characters bother me. The art has by no mean competitive ability to the average level.
Koukou Debut No matter how meaningful and lovely the story may be, I just cannot stand the female protagonist, my apology.
Any manhwa by Hwang Mi Ri/ Han Yu Rang or the like. The art line is like sharp pointy needles screeching into your eyes and is there even a different in the characters from all those stories?
Mishounen Produce I have no idea how can this even be so popular.

Man is more ape than many of the apes.

[accidentally harsh comment for which I apologise]
Sometimes I hate how the characters are drawn with flat faces or ones that just look plain weird.
The male leads are easily distinguished with black hair, which, if anything, is a major spoiler, assuming it isn't already obvious. The characters do all look the same so she probably has a basic character outline she refers to.
But it's still annoying, other mangakas use the same character outline but make some other parts (be they appearance or personality) differ to individualise the characters.
