Quote from Liria
I wasn't sure how popular Itadakimasu was, so I didn't mention it in my other post, but I really went into sugar overload on that one. It was cute at first, but I was really hurrying to get through the last 2 volumes of it as fast as I could. Thank god it wasn't longer, or I'd have likely dropped it. Nothing really unique. It can be a good older woman/younger man story at times, though.

I think it's one of Yoshihara's funniest works. I don't like all of it of course. But it's like an anti-cliche of shoujo/smut manga. That's why it cracked me up when I first read it. I especially find the side characters of the school funny.

I strongly second (or 3rd, 4th?) Watase Yuu's shoujo manga. Never liked them. Looks like they have fantasy, adventure and stuff but the plots and characters are just annoying. Perhaps some of the biggest shoujo cliches were started by her.

Merupuri - I struggled to finish this one.

Koukou Debut - It was alright. I just don't think it was the best shoujo ever.

Looking for... shoujo with a canned peach confession.

Vampire Knight - I just don't get the whole craze about vampires lately. Fangirls and their bishie vampires...don't even get me started on Toilet (Twilight)...gah
Either way, VK is just...terrible.

I'm an odd mix. Some of my favorite mangas are popular ones that some of you don't like (Hana Kimi, Hana Yori Dango, Fruits Basket, Ouran, Fushigi Yuugi).

But I just didn't get the hype with Vampire Knight and Koukou Debut (it just got boring). When I finished reading Peach Girl, my first thought was, "That was dumb, why did I waste my time with it?" Shinshi Doumei Cross - interesting at first, but then it got weird. Plus Tanemura's work is just too flowery and dramatic for me.

Most manhwa I don't like. The art is too angular.

Hot Gimmick- absolutely hate this one and any other story by this mangaka
Haou Airen - this one too...and any other by this mangaka.

I absolutely hate mangas that have the guy rape and/or abuse the girl and the girl is dumb enough to fall for him. ..what the heck?

A little of topic - I never liked her shoujo ones much either. But I have to say, she really improved with Sakura Gari. I'm really loving it. It's funny that despite the fact that she's a shoujo mangaka, her best story thus far was in the yaoi genre.

Their are a lot of shojo manga ,ostly because they may have gotten to long when they should have ended or I hated how they ended. . . . .

But the manga I hate the most is Deep Love

Tokyo Crazy Paradise <== I literally FORCED myself to read everything because of all the good reviews, love for genderbending and the desperate hope that somehow it gets better by the next volume. I hated the art, the ecchi and choppy storyline. Probably the majority of the reason I'm too scared to read Skip Beat.

Midnight Secretary <== thought it would be a story with a cold cool heroine... -_-

Kare Kano <== to much drama-rama for me roll

Pretty much anything by TANEMURA Arina (hated the art, especially the eyes...) and HWANG Mi Ri (tried numerous titles and just ended up dropping them)

Hana Kimi and Power! <== unfortunately my love for genderbenders could not prevail over my dislike for the heroines.

Hatenkou Yuugi <== found this too illogical, rushed and choppy.

or you could just search for your favourite shoujo on my Unfinished List. XD
