Vampire Knight -- I liked the beginning, but somewhere it stopped being about the characters and instead became about situations in which the author would like the characters to be.

Suki tte Ii na yo -- I think I liked the first chapter? Then it just became a mess of poor smut and annoying textbook shojo cliches.

Black Bird -- It made up for what it lacked in depth and originality with storytelling. Then that jumped the shark so now it's just bad.

Kimi ni Todoke -- Yeah like everybody said, it gets boring. It's slow and repetitive.

Ouran High School Host Club -- Was never good to begin with.

Fruits Basket -- This also was never good, but I hung onto it for a while hoping something bad would happen to the annoying characters.

... Been a long while since I read these.

Kaichou Wa Maid Sama- I liked it at first but as it progressed I started not liking it.

Vampire Knight- It was good but then I just couldnt understand it anymore and the heroine... not good.

Black Bird- It was sooo.... yeah idk, but not good

I hate Kaicho wa Maid-sama. The male lead is annoying--especially his whole "you're a girl so you can't do anything manly" schtick. I know it's probably coz he's afraid she won't like guys or something, but it feels like veiled misogyny to me. It's like he won't even let the girl protect herself (when she can). And the fact that the girl allows this pisses me off.

I'm forcing myself to read Black Bird so I can say I've read it, with all the hype going on; but 3 volumes in I'm sooooo sick of it dead

It's finished, but Hana to Akuma. I tried it ages ago, but I think I forced myself through about 5 chapters, thinking I should give it a chance because of the number of rave reviews, but I just couldn't take any more than that. I found it mindless and I didn't really like the art..

I'm not interested with the too good looking characters that everyone admires.

I really dislike Pichi Pichi Pitch. Because the heroine is annoying -_-;;
Suki tte Ii na yo and Kaichou wa Maid-sama too. I read Suki tte ii na yo at first, but bored since I don't like how the story goes.
And Vampire Knight too much sparkles for me.
Namida Usagi - Seifuku no Kataomoi I have the comics until volume 6, but I got bored. the heroine becomes surprisingly annoying and the hero just transformed from scary-megane character to a popular handsome boy.

I want to like Red River but I read Ouke no Monshou first and I just can't unsee the similarities. I can't get through from far away I had really good intentions but it's getting a little boring and I find the heroine a little forgettable. I no longer touch slice of life or school related shoujo with a stick, I just find them all the same.

Let's see...
Every girly anime ( or manga, I only watched an episode of 2 of the anime to decide if I'd try out the manga, if there was one for it) fan said they loved ones like maid sama, mermaid melody and vampire knight, but I really hated them. Skip beat was ok, though, because the main girl was kind of a tomboy a lot of the time and was actually not all wimpy and male reliant. Not to say I don't enjoy a cute little romance now and then, it's just that the girls in them are usually dull and weak.

I definitely don't like Hana Yori Dango. Rather than that it' badly written, it's just it's one of the worst mangas according to my liking. I hate that guy to his guts.

Plenty others I don't like, but those are only cause it's cliched and overall not a good enough manga to get me to hate it.

Another one to add for me: Hadashi de Bara o Fume. Okay, I don't really like historical settings to being with, but - What is with all that drama and the roses and such? No, it's just no for me and I don't even want to give it another try, even though it appears to be quite popular. Haha.
