It's shoujo (or josei) manga (or manhwa/manhua) but neither the art nor story fit for shoujo. To put it simple, it's mis-genre. Really, I am not interested reading shoujo but some time ago I read DN Angel and I think it's more fit for shounen.

It doesn't have to completely unfit for shoujo, just not specifically for shoujo is enough (like Oresama Teacher).

NO Hentai, Yaoi, Yuri, Shounen ai, and Shoujo ai (except you think it's a mis-genre).

Thanks in advance. biggrin

Basara is definitely a shoujo that I feel could also be shounen. I mean, it definitely isn't for the faint of heart

I also would recommend looking at WATASE Yuu. Most of her work is shoujo, but some of her better known works I feel fit both shounen and shoujo. She also does Arata Kangatari, which is Shounen, if you haven't read that smile

tonari no kaibutsu-kun, well, somehow I think they got shounen's comedy sense. Don't know why it remembers me with Yankee-kun to megane-chan which is different with it.

Kanata Kara, it really is more like shounen, but the main couple is such a beautiful slow romance. The heroine is a damsel in distress, but the way she's written is so precious and useful, she's not annoying at all.

Well... for the story line of DN Angel... it doesn't seem too shoujo... but the art is pretty shoujo... pretty simplistic. Usually shounen pays more attention to the background, so the fighting scenes and stuff look better. Same with Oresama Teacher, the plot is pretty shoujo too, it's definitely aiming for an audience of girls. But I agree... they're really 'not shoujo-like' and I really liked Oresama Teacher.
Anyways... mangas...
Six Half... it's not cliché... though it's not really as off as Oresama Teacher...
Really sorry I don't know many mangas that are like DN Angel which really sets it apart, but...
Yotsubato!, yes it's slice of life but some people classify it as 'shoujo'... as for me... I'm not quite sure. But it's about a very cute young girl who tend to misunderstand things in a hilarious way...
Amnesia Try the first episode, to be honest, I couldn't tell at all, but maybe it's because it was the first episode and I didn't know it was shoujo. I was honestly fooled into that the whole story would be piecing together the memory that I didn't pay any attention to the guys flocking around her. It wasn't until I did some research that I realized it was from a game... and it's practically harem.
I was told that the following mangas:
Kamisama Hajimemashita : Since romance is not too big of a theme
Skip Beat: similar reasons
Beauty Pop: once again, same reasons, though I thought it was a classic shoujo...
reimei no arcana: it's ongoing and I haven't read it for a while but from until where I left off it seemed pretty promising (she's not giving a single glance towards romance yet...)
Ciel contains fighting... magical schools... etc. etc. hmmm... not romance focus, does have some fighting, quite interesting, you might like it if you haven't already read it...
And I just found out... siesta is apparently shoujo... WHAT? I might not want to follow it anymore if it develops that way, but up until now... I didn't even notice... wasn't even taken into consideration.
this is all for now. I'll add more if I remember any... tell me if this is what you're looking for smile or did you want something that's more shounen-like, such as Basara
