The Top Ten

1
Ouran Highschool Host Club
Ouran is a classic that simultaneously parodies and utilizes the shoujo genre. I adore the characters and their natural chemistry. The host club creates a really great atmosphere and truly convince you of their unbreakable friendship, but I especially love the two main leads Haruhi and Tamaki. They inspire you to be exactly who you truly are while making no apologies for it, but also to be wholeheartedly kind to others without holding grudges.

Haruhi shows that being a strong female character is not about being physically kickass or violent - it's about not losing sight of yourself and what's important to you as an individual. She is surrounded by gorgeous host club members but she can look past their appearances and see who they really are, much to their initial surprise. She is blunt, witty and intelligent and she actually has dreams for her future that she works hard for instead of drooling over hot guys (even letting romance take over her life). And what I love about Tamaki is that though he is overtly labeled as then princely type, his character refuses to let itself be defined by his outward appearance. It's quite obvious that he is in no way perfect. He's obnoxious, annoying, whiney, dramatic, narcissistic, air headed and crazy in his antics, but he is also nothing short of a genuine person who possesses a heart of gold towards everyone in life.

And by god Hatori Bisco manages to not portray any of her characters as saintly, which I give her major kudos for. It's kind of strange that I typically would stay away from something this sugary and cute, but I think Ouran is the overall best written shoujo series I've seen because it never loses quality or gives in to only one element. At the end of the day, I just can't help but love it for what it is.
Definitely the best for me. The characters are all well-rounded, and who couldn't love the host club?! (Spoilers! You have been warned... ) especially Tamaki's emo attitude! And the plot has many twists and turns, some of which can beat the sanity out of you! Bisco Hatori is probably the best author out there yet, with her humorous comments and heart-breaking storyline which keeps you reading Ouran over and over. When you've finished the story, it just makes you swoon and cry out "WHY IS THIS IT?! " At the same time.

The lively attitude brought through all of the mishaps and mischief keeps you choking with laughter right to the end! I recommend this to every manga fan, whether boy or girl! 1st place definitely!
Oh dear... Ouran. I just hope Tamaki doesn't go into his emo corner because they didn't come first. But 5th is fantastic, just like Ouran.
All honesty, Ouran's story has been done so many times. The hot guys at the rich school, and the poor girl. But writer, Bisco Hatori would have to be one of the most creative and funny woman out there! All the characters are so in depth and unique, and when you finnish it you really feel like you've lost a friend. Or a part of you even.
At times, you will have to put the damn book down because you can't stop laughing! In a way, Ouran is simple, but it has a big impact and is highly loved by many.

2Kaichou Wa Maid Sama
.. I LOVE THIS MANGA *O* it's my favourite manga from all Mangas in this world. I have read the manga for hundred times and it's always the same and the best. Every time I see this Manga I want to read it again and again. I also have read many mangas but (and when I say many I mean Many :D) But it's the best from all mangas I EVER rode.. I don't know why some people don't like this manga?! Just give it a chance. You're not going to die If you read it or not read it. It's up to you but, If you search for a rally good manga, which makes you laugh and still has some romantic, You should definitely read this manga ^. ^
Look I won't lie, I really do not like this Manga. I have tried to read it seven times. SEVEN TIMES! But I can't. It bores me, and I find the characters so hard to feel for. But! I know how much this Manga is loved and that is why I've tried given it 6th place.
I've seen Misaki and Usui dominate couples in polls, and seen forums of people rattling on about there love for this, so I have respect for this Manga.
A point many point out, is there love for Misaki's strong personality, and how she encourages girls to stand up against guys, and I agree heart and soul to that statement.
Usui is so HAWT~! >A< misaki is the most lucky girl in the world! I LOVE misaki's personality and how she's called the demon president. It's also funny how she calls usui a perverted outer-space alien! LMAO! Kaichou wa maid-sama ALWAYS makes me laugh

3Skip Beat
Never once did I think acting was like fighting! Skip Beat is without a doubt amazing! Revenge? Hell yes says Kyoko Mogami!
I don't see how you couldn't love Kyoko, I really don't. One minuet she's yelling like she's going to battle, then the next she's crying at how cute something is!
So you see, Kyoko has given her life to a guy right? And then it turns out he didn't give a shiz about her... So what does she do? Get revenge of course! But that's not all, the lovable but scary Ren get's involved, just giving it even more edge! I'd love to give Skip Beat a higher place, but I don't want to be biased, so I give it 9th place. Please don't send your demons onto me Kyoko! I'll give you first place next time I promise!
If sheer awesomeness was a genre, Skip Beat would so come under it. It's got everything a great shoujo manga should have, lovable characters, laugh out loud humor, beautiful art, the occasional tearjerker, and just pure fun. You just can't help but cheer on Kyoko! She's a unique heroine, one who doesn't always just wait around for her knight to rescue her. Ren too isn' t your typical prince. I'd really like to thank the mangaka for creating such an epic work! If you haven't read skip beat yet, you're missing out. Its a manga that gets progressively better so don't let go of it!
Skip beat is one of the most awesome manga you will ever read it is so pure containing all types, drama, comedy, romance, showbiz, all in one! So it is highly recommended and it is in my top 3, start reading it immediately...

4Gakuen Alice
Gakuen Alice is one of, if not, the best shoujo manga I have ever read in my life. And that is quite a large number. It has elements of comedy, fantasy, adventure and mystery as well as romance. I found all the characters entertaining and the story never got boring.

While MIkan (the lead) may seem like a stereotypical ditzy shoujo lead, she grows out of it and becomes a genuinely likeable character worthy to be the lead in such a fantastic manga. Her companions are similarly likeable. Hotaru, her best friend, is definitely someone I would love to meet in real life.

The romance was great too. I usually despise love triangles but this one was good. It wasn't annoying because Mikan (the girl) wasn't overly indecisive. As for the story, I can't say much without giving too much away. Just know that it is developed, incredible and worth the read:).

If you haven't read Gakuen Alice, please please please read it asap. For those Gakuen Alice lovers who haven't voted yet, please do! I believe Gakuen Alice should at least make the top 3. We just need to move it up one rank guys!
It's the best manga ever. The first time I read this, I thought that this manga would be boring but it turns out that this manga is really good. This manga has all the genres I could wish for. I love the relationship between mikan and natsume. They're fated to be together even before they was born. And I feel sorry for mikan that she has lost both her parents. But anyway I really reccomend this manga. It got first place in my list. Thumbs up!
Two words. Ruca. Pyon.
I really do love this Manga and all the many lovable characters involved! Ruca Pyon makes my heart melt every time I see him, making me wish all people could be as innocent as he! (But that would be boring)
At first it seems very been there done that, but you have no idea how intense and complicated this Manga gets! It really is one of the best out there, and I think it deserves much more attention then it gets.
And something I love about this, is in the very beggining, friendship was what drove this story. And even though other aspects come into it, (love, courage) friendship is still the strongest. The love between Mikan and Hotaru makes you jealuse in a way. And the love hate relationship between Mikan and Natsume makes you go bonkers in cuteness!
So I proudly give Gakuen Alice 10th place. Though remeber, it's last but not least!

5Dengeki Daisy
It started off with a cliche' hook of "I'll always protect you. " But then it turned out to be so much better with a new and interesting plot. The book manages to keep the familiar ties with the shoujo mangas we know and love, while making it more realistic and and easier to relate to. There's also complete new in depth and more view on the characters rather than the standard lonely hot guy meets simple girl that thinks she's ugly and plain but is really pretty. The art style is also beautiful, and on top of that the manga artist is MALE, which makes this manga even better! In my eyes this is the absolute best shoujo manga out there.
Oh my goodness. I am completely hooked on this manga. Teru is one of the few female protagonists I have actually come to love rather than grown to hate. This manga has largely become a coming of age story for her and not just a romance. I have also really appreciated the "my pace" approach to Kurosaki and Teru's relationship. It feels very natural and it's so good to see characters who aren't rushing to fall into bed with each other before the relationship is ready for it. Now I just have to wait for the next volume.
I mean I rarely read shoujo manga (being a guy and all) but I have to say, this manga is really good :D
And for ONCE in a manga the girl isn't a weak twig, I mean I know that's the stereotype for shoujo manga, but they are always weak and useless and clingy and annoying, but not this manga! This one the girl can take care of herself and is strong, and its awesome! :D

6Kamisama Hajimemashita
This manga should totally be higher on the list. It's a very good manga, especially for those who want a nice, long manga. The main heroine faces problems that are very realistic and I love that the main couple doesn't just fall in love at first sight. I admit that I first looked at this story because I was bored, but I'm definitely a fan now. I'll be one of the first to cry and scream if ever this story gets put on permanent hiatus or ever stops getting scanlated.
This manga has everything and balances it all perfectly. Character development is really great and the plot is just... OOHHMMYYGOD... Basically. The romance feels right and NOT forced, and the female lead is really likable. And, of course, the male lead (s) are just awesome, as well. Also, the art, as well as the storytelling, is phenomenal, in my opinion. Just... Just go read it, please!
This manga is one of the best I have ever seen! The author links up all the mystery and story bit by bit smoothly and it just keeps you wanting more and more! The author is really consistent in what she wants to express and the love story between nanami and tomoe is really beautiful! Once you start reading you will not stop, that's how amazing it is. The love story is just to touching and beautiful!

7Hana Yori Dango
In Hana Yori Dango, there is an incredible dynamic journey for most, if not all, the characters. Makino Tsukushi is an incredible role model to serve as the main character; her strong will and refusal to meet the superficial standards of her snobbish classmates gives readers an urgency to cheer for her as she stands up to the elite F4, the wealthy upper class, and all those that disregard her for her low status in society. Though the art style during the first few chapters are not exactly up to par, it is definitely a unique aspect of the manga's beginning. Nevertheless, the storyline and dialogue manages to detract attention from the art style, which does, in fact, progress and shape beautifully as the story develops. By the end, Hana Yori Dango is remembered for much more than just its art and plot. Yoko Kamio launches her readers through an incredible up-and-down journey of her characters and their given role in society. The central relationship between hot-headed, arrogant Domyouji Tsukasa and strong-willed Makino Tsukushi (who originally pines for the quiet prince Hanazawa Rui) becomes a pairing that creates some of the most memorable and touching scenes to ever transpire between two manga characters. Aside from romantic relationships, relationships between friends, parents and children, siblings, and upper class and lower class are also explored. Many of the "minor" characters are also given their own background stories so as not to be forgotten by the mangaka and her audience. These characters are never put aside to keep the central relationship in the limelight. Yoko Kamio explores each character significantly and satisfactorily.

Over all, Hana Yori Dango is a brilliant manga with many beautiful and hilarious quotes, dramatic plot twists, and realistic characters that will allow the story to have an impact on all fans of shoujo manga.
Yeah, best shoujo manga ever! So many emotions, so many feelings... Words are not enough to describe how good this is... Or how people so flawed can be so perfect!
It's the best manga... That's it! I could read it a thousand time without get tired! I love this shojo!

8Last Game
Totally amazing. The artwork is neat and nice! Although, there are some parts that are a little bit rushed, they are still cute! Oh gods, I hope they're gonna make an anime for this. Even the manga, which is new, is already a big hit, what's more if this is an anime?

One last thing... HISATO X MIKOTO forever!
This is the best shoujo manga for meh! Everything is so cute x')
I love the art, plot and as well as the personalities that each of the characters have

SoumaxKujou! Kyaa~ //Even though they surely won't end up together

Sorry SoumaxKujou haters, I'll still go for Souma B|
I really love the art style in this and the main male lead is so fun to read about! This is definitely one of my favorite manga and I really can't wait to see how things'll end up with the protagonist. It's also got a cute love triangle that makes me all fluttery to read about.

9Kimi ni Todoke
It's simply just a beautiful story about friendship and falling in love, overall living a life filled with ups and downs, and a chance to change.
I'm absolutely in love with this manga. Well, both the manga and anime are great. It's adorable how the story develops - The main character, Sawako, starts off as a really shy but kind girl, who is satisfied with making others happy. She just wants to be a normal girl, have friends, carry on the typical life of a student. She tries really hard but she still scares people, until Kazehaya shows up. He helps her win confidence in herself, he introduces her to new people, helps the classroom to see a new side of her, and eventually he falls in love with all the things she has to offer. Everything is perfect.

The supporting cast is also great, I have to admit I hated some of the characters as they were showing up (the antagonists, of course) but even the bad guys end up being cuties.
The supporting cast is amazing, which doesn't often happen in mangas where more focus is places on the main couple. I really love every character.

10Fruits Basket
Who wouldn't love this? I have not met one person who does not know about this amazing manga. It has a curse, romance, drama, and humor. And hello... Kyo Sohma is in it! He is just the definition of HOT! Tohru is also a great role model because she is nice to everyone no matter who they are and what they have done. She accepts everyone, even Akito who has hurt everyone in the story... Including Tohru herself. The romance is also adorable. To me, this is the best one out there.
Where do I begin? Fruits Basket is that Manga EVERY Manga fan has heard of. Even if some have no idea what it is, they've heard the name. (And no I don't mean the game)
Leading character, Tohru Honda is a role model to all readers. She loves the good of a person and accepts the bad.
Each character is unique, mixing together to make a sweet, sad and funny Manga which changes people's lives. And that is why Fruits Basket makes 2nd place.
It's a romance with a really nice twist. The characters are pretty much all likeable despite their flaws. It's got drama and really explores the emotions of the characters and why they are feeling the way they do. It's got some great plot twists and it will leave you laughing on one page and crying the next! Basically it's not the kind of manga you forget easily and it's got everything a shoujo should have and more!

The Contenders

11High School Debut
To me this is the best out of the best of what I've ever read.
I fell in love with it from the first chapter and couldn't stop reading,
The story is really good and the art is well done too.
Without a doubt this manga is a MUST-READ.
I really liked it (except for the beginning) funny and has a happy ending ^^ (sorta) (I'm very vague... )
It started with a cliche in the firts five chapters, but it got really good afterwards. My favorite manga forever. And trust me, I've read all the mangas in this list.

12Faster Then a Kiss
So sexy with so little actual sexuality. The less male is very hot and appealing. And who doesn't love a secret romance? I really hope someone publishes this in English.
This manga grabs readers attention! It's an on-going manga right? I hope there's an anime for this~~
I love this manga especially when Shouma teases Fumino and doesn't realize his love for Fumino. I also love the parts were Fumino's love for Sensie makes her not give in to anything. This is by far one of the best shoujo types I have ever read.

13Beauty Pop
The idea of this manga is really great! I mean, have you ever thought about a shojou manga talking about hairstyling stuff? I do love this manga! Especially Kiri's character who always absent minded, Narumi who always has bad mood, Kei who is unbelievably cute (one of my favourite! ), Ochiai who is really serious (and he has the name database of every students in his school), and the others. It's a must read shojou manga ever! >w<
Amazing! Th female lead had the most hilarious personality! Instead of the always blushing and dependant female leads. She had the guy blushing, she was in control of him, without even caring! But she wasn't dense, she was in tune with her suroundings, she knew how to manipulate people around her. She's still a very nice person. Love her character!
Now if you haven't read beauty pop... You better go do that. This stuff is gold! You will also get a few hairstyling tips along he way ;)

Wait.. Your still here?
GO AND READ IT!

14Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun
In English it translates to 'My little monster'

This manga is a newer released one.. Maybe a a year ago. It is one of the most unique and phenomenon all love onesies you will ever one across.
The two main characters are Shizuku and Haru... It's about how they meet and whole lot more. There is also an anime :) I'm up to the latest chapter of he manga and am addicted! Its definitely a must read for everyone. :)

Enjoy!
This is my absolute favorite shoujo manga! A must read in my opinion.
Every characters are just so likeable.

15Black Bird
Most supernatural shoujos are pretty weak on the supernatural criteria, but Black Bird manages to make it both adorable with romance and bloody with fighting and blood. You grow to love each of the characters for their faults (including the main antagonist) and as the chapters go on, clinging to your furniture and desperately wanting for more. Definitely an exciting and wonderful read!
"! This manga is one of my faves!
T's made for an older audience, but that doesn't mean it's serious! The main protagonist is a teenage girl who gets abused by demons daily, but can't do anything about it. Then the main male protagonist comes in and he loves her, but she: doesn't remember him at all! His advisors are sometimes funny, the drama s so tense and the female lead doesn't understand it most of the time, the male lead's love for the female lead is so romantic, who says demons don't have a heart?
He cares for her and she cares for him. But a demon and a mortal don't mix, for her mortal body has a limit that he can see. But other demon - they don't give a d@m if they eat her flesh or her blood. This tale is full of romance, fiction, demons, drama and a whole lot of other things, that makes a Tengu truly, a black bird."
I have one sentence for this manga: I simply like it.

Masterpiece I just can't ever get enough of it
Best manga ever! Love it!

17We Were There
Even though reading the plot might make you think it is the stereotypical shoujo manga, it gets better each chapter. The story and art gets better as you keep reading, it is a truly moving story. If you like reading meaningful and deep manga, this is the one to try! The movie and the anime are awesome as well.
Its a wonderful rea. As it shows clearly the emotions of the girl and how through hardships and trial the love grows more and more and how love eventually conquers all!
We Were There (Bokura Ga Ita) is one of the most emotional and moving mangas I've ever read. I really recommend that people give this a try - especially if you didn't initially try it because the vanilla plot synopsis turned you off. Read!

18Vampire Knight
A hit everywhere! People who have nothing to do with Manga, love this!
Vampire's have always been a hit among many, and so have hot guys batteling it out for that one, amazing girl.
Vampire Knight follows your average romantic vampiric story, but the art work and characters bring it to life, to snatch 3rd place.
Also, it has one of the most sucesful and satisfying love triangles ever. At one point you think she's found her Mr right, then something happens to go back to square one. A little frustrating yes, but exciting and keeps the story going at a good pace.
IT is an amazing manga and for me reading it you really feel for the characters Yuki, Zero, Kaname you fall for them and their struggles. The love triangle is amazing and the anime was excellent. The manga has a mysterious quality about it that you get pulled in from the first page if you've never read a manga I recommend this you will not be disappointed its so good
Oh vampire knight must be N. 1
It's really fabulous, the plot is fab and mysterious and the art is awesome..
That manga is about vampires and romance and mystery..
Really lovely and it's just so awesome.
Can't say what it is about because words can't describe it...
Yuk is cute and zero is adorable, and kaname is (•_•)

19L-DK
I LOVED it! Super sweet, funny and sexy. Great artwork too. It's also quite sad and frustrating sometimes. Kinda stereotypical but with a nice twist.
The relationship between the couple is fab
Awesome! Love this manga so much!

20Oresama Teacher
Oresama Teacher is a unique manga. I don't think I can find any manga similar to it. The main female lead is strong and I like that type, and also hilariously funny. I laughed throughout the manga. And then the plot is well-planned, the characters are well described with characters that has their purpose in the manga. I think it is for people who would like to read a comedy manga, and probably a friendship kind of thing.
A really unique shoujo manga which strays away from the mainstream plots, characters and relationships in shoujo manga. Friendship is more central then romance, and the romance is very subtle and makes you think about the romance yourself rather than have the characters tell you everything. The art is beautiful and so are the many characters, it has great humour and some action, as well as a strong leading female. I really recommend it!
Very interesting! You won't stop laughing once you read it.

21Horimiya
About two people who are not who you really think that they are... Not too many cliches, but what do dyou expect from SHOUJO? Excellent art, but a tad bit frustrating at times without any developments every now and then like how a shoujo manga should have, so you could say that its a bit slow moving as of the 29th of August 2013, up till where I've read, which is the latest available scanlation. A good read, and I thoroughly enjoyed it... I feel this manga should be advertised a bit more and was Shocked to see that nobody had given it a review, go for it, you will NOT waste your precious time; and THAT is a promise ^_^
What? This should be higher up. Super easy read. Super funny. No annoying characters. I'm not sure how the mangaka manage to turn a typical school love comedy into something that makes you crave for more. Just read this and you're gonna get exactly what I meant.
This manga is awesome! It's really funny and has a very good art work. I really recommend it!

22Clannad
To be honest, I'm not a fan of Clannad... At all. But still I give it 4th place, because it still made me cry! And also, because people are nuts about it!
Clannad follows the life of Tomoya Okazaki, your average teenaged boy protaganist, as he helps his cute friends with their life crisis's. Despite there stories being quiet depressing, the characters stay happy making you laugh at there unique charm. At first it seems intierly average, but if you read between the lines, it's actually a very deep and heartwarming story.
Clannad is a very emotional and sad story sometimes filled with happiness and sadness too. Its really the best anime out there and also the saddest one too. It touches the bottom of your heart.
I don't recall Clannad being a shoujo (more like seinen), but it's awesome nonetheless. Amazing art, and a solid plot. If you're looking for something to move your heart, this is definitely the show for you!

23Hapi Mari
This manga is so romantic! Full of comedy! Make me laugh in every chapter! When the male character needs the female character (in one of the chapters) made my cheeks are blushing! =^^=
But, when he decided to disappear for a while, I think that's not long enough. At least until 2 chapters have passed then the male character could appear again ^^
Just my opinion
The plot is awesome so are the characters
I love the female caracter, so strong and intelligent! And they make such a cute couple

24Tokyo Mew Mew
Tokyo Mew Mew is nice. But since she ends up with the wrong guy, I must admit I got pretty angry! It made me go mad! I don't even know why I voted for this anyways.
Tokyo Mew Mew is one of the best magical girl series I've ever seen. It has romance, action, and all the guys are HOT =D
I didn't think Ichigo ended up with the wrong guy though. After all, he was Ichigo's most loved person so I was happy with this ending.
Before I watched Tokyo Mew Mew, I couldn't stand anime. Once my friend showed it to me, I was completely intrigued by the characters and plot, and it even got me watching plenty of other anime!

25Nana
Nana was an amazing anime. It made me cry a couple of time and it is really unique. When I was watching the anime I always taught Nana (Hachi) was going to get back together. Nana is really a awesome anime in fact it is one of my favorite and when I watch it I can sometimes relate to. The ending was good but I wished they showed Nana Osaki when she was in England. I wished she didn't chose Tamaki because all he does is cheat on her she should have gone with Nobu because he really did love her. I really think the anime was spectacular and it really is going to get you hooked. I finished watch it in 2 days. I really like it :D and whenever you watch it it's like you understand what there going through. BEST ANIME EVER :D
You try, but fail to find Manga out there like Nana. Nana is incredibly unique, and shows you how strong friendship is in a whole different way, so that is why it gets NANA (7)
Nana meets Nana, and they instantly hit it off. And fate brings them together again to their liking. All of a sudden, the two have a new best friend in there lives! And that is what Nana is, the lives of two best friends who share the same name and lives. The music, celebrities and sex whirls around to make a dramatic and juicy Manga which is loved by many.
This manga will draw you in like no other with unexpected twists. An everlasting friendship and love that never fades. It's a realistic story with some unique music that will play on your emotions...
Nana by far one of the most amazing anime and manga, I look forward to seeing it end, and pray that Ai Yazawa may get better and get to finish it.
Give it a try! And don't just watch the anime, read the manga as well it's not something you'll regret.

26Keishichou Tokuhanka 007
Nothing too mushy or cliche. Female protagonist is not the fainting heart who can't do anything and has to be rescued all the time, and the male lead has an interesting, mysterious character. Along with great plot and action, the relationship moves along at a perfect pace, paired with interesting cases in need of solving.
This is so good everybody should read this it makes my heart beats I really really recommend this to anyone

27The Wallflower
... Lots of sexy :) :D
Great story! Sunako-chan, who was devastated with her crush became an introvert and started hanging out with creepy anatomy models and skeletons. Her aunt, who owns a mansion with four bishounen with different personalities, made a deal with the four of them to make sunako a lady in exchange for free board and lodging. The story revolves around them while trying to make sunako a lady. Another charactiristic of sunako is that when she sees beautiful creatures, bishounen, or even bishoujo, she gets nosebleeds. SUPER LOVE THIS ANIME.

28Sailor Moon
Ah... Where it all began. Even if you don't like this magic girl sensation, you have to appreciate that it along with others, influenced the Manga that we have today.
The tale of a normal school girl, who turns out to be a Princess from another planet, saves the world along with her best friends. And of course, win's love from her true love over and over again.
With much respect, Sailor Moon takes first place and is a legend that will never be forgotten.
Best Manga EVER! I loved this manga. It revolutionized the shoujo manga world. Will remain in my heart forever.
This was the first manga I ever read and I instantly loved it. I read it all at once.

30Akagami no Shirayukihime
A good one for people who like non tsundere strong female leads

31Special A
I really love this manga, it is about falling in love with a rival. It has an interesting plot. This is so funny because the girl is so dense but you'll definitely fall in love with Kei
Great plot and very inspiring!
If you enjoyed maid-sama and ouran you are so gonna love SA! This is so funny and kei gives me so much butterflies! I highly recomment manga over anime but the anime is also kawaii KeiXHikari 

32Taiyou No Ie
You'll love the story right away! It's quite sad because of broken family and stuff, but still, there are happy moments~ ANYWAY, the two main characters are so adorable that even the reader will blush >////< I even spent the whole day reading because I just can't get enough of it! Read it if you have time~
A must read! A mixture of comedy, romance and suspense~~ The love of the two main characters is slow, and not rushed. Sure, like most mangas, the brother of the main character also falls for her and blababla.. but STILL! It is super cute and with lots of laughs along the way. The girl finds out she loves the guy later and sometimes and KAWAII and funny delusions They are so cute! You MUST read it if you haven't yet! ><

33Love Com
Lovely complex is one manga which is excellent at what it is supposed to be - its a highschool romance and comedy. It has got great humor and some tear jerking moments. Its having a simple plot but the characters are very interesting and will keep you entertained. It pulls you into feeling the emotions of the lead characters and will never get you bored. Its story line is more realistic than most shoujo and doesn't involve meaningless "love at first sight".. Their feelings develop over-time.. Well again..! Its a great romance comedy!
Lovely Complex, well I will have to say this is one of my favorites. The troubles the characters face while discovering the feelings for each other is so amusing, Risa and Ötani really is a comedy duo
Oh man I really love this manga. Although it's filled with comedy the love part is really serious, much more than ouran high school host club. (Although I love that too)

This is a good manga.. Really really great even though it is a little bit rushed

35Hana Kimi
Love this manga! I love the hilarious situations that the characters are put into. You can tell that the art took a lot of time to draw because it is so well done. The facial expressions are spot on and the story line makes you feel a variety of different feelings once you get past the fact that this girl travel across the world for a guy she'd never met. After that, the story is great! Love it and would love to reread it!
This deserves the top ten. An amazing story, with laugh-out-loud moments and an interesting twist on several accepted shoujo cliches, such as a love triangle with TWO nice guys and no jerk!
I love this series. Started it when I was like 13 and I'm 23 now re reading my collection. It takes me back. Sano and Ashiya are so opposite but completely made for each other. The effort she goes through just to be with him and his protectiveness of her makes me gush!

36Charming Junkie
I really love their story... This story is all about modeling and Naka (the lead female) has a very scary face though she had the body of being a model. Umi (the male lead) is cross-dressing to be a female model. Until Nake bumped into Umi and accidentaly knew Umi's true gender.

So... Umi helped Naka to be in the modeling industry.
And... Where their love begins...

This is very funny, has great artwork, and an amazing story... WORTH READING!
I really love this manga, especially Umi. He is so wonderful!

37Fullmoon Wo Sagashite
Never will I forget the moment I started and ended this Manga. And I'm so happy it was my second.

Arina Tanemura is a Manga artist no one can compare with. Many take off her beautiful style, but none capture the emotion like her. And Fullmoon is her at her best, so it's given 8th place.

Misaki Koyama has one dream, to become a famous singer. But her vicious throat tumour is only getting worse, to the state where she will soon lose her voice. What happens next is for you to find out!

This Manga goes where most don't, suicide. And I think the way Arina Tanemura express's this among the characters is some what frightening. My love for this Manga will never fade... Ever. And I know many feel the same way.
Incredible drawings, touching story, truth, love, beauty, laughs and tears. Nothing more to expect from a manga than what Fullmoon can offer.
An good anime and manga touching store gives you lots of emotions you should also see it or read it.

38Strobe Edge
This shoujo lacks the drama which has become almost a standard for most shoujo mangas. This story though, shines for that itself. With a refreshingly different lead male, it tells the story of a pure and unrequited (initially) love. With great art as well, this manga is a must read!
The characters are so very cuute! As usual the heroine goes through some hardships but the end is simply cute when he finally can't keep away from her. Finally an honest shoujo male character!
I just finished this manga and I must admit IT'S ONE OF THE BEST SHOUJO MANGAS I'VE READ! ///maybe it's the best one I have read actually! I HIGHLY RECOMMANDE IT!

39Hirunaka No Ryuusei
Amazing artwork, strong leading lady. A story in which you can't help but love both male characters. Although, I lean more towards Mamura.
The only manga I read wherein I was having a hard time on who will I choose to pair with the protagonist who is Suzume. I'm confused if I will go to team Shishio-sensei or to team Mamura-kun. !
I also like the way the characters dress their selves in every situation. THUMBS UP! I love it!
THIS IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL ART AND STORY OF ALL TIME OH GOSH WHERE DO I START!

Okay fangirling moment over%%

Hirunaka no Ryuusei is about Suzume Yosano, who moves from the country to Tokyo. As a child, she lost her way home and was guided by a shooting star in the middle of the day. On her way to her uncles house from the train station, Suzume runs into a weird hipster man, who carries her home when she faints.

The next day at her new school, she meets her new teacher, Shishio-sensei, who was the guy from the day before...

(It's basically about first love, heartbreak, making friends and those major hotties who fall in love with her >. <)

I love this story and wish the chapters came out faster! For those of you who don't like a student/teacher relationship, don't worry, because there are other love interests!

Highly recommend 289/10 golden chun-chun's

40Pika Ichi

41Mars
An amazing story. I'm surprised this isn't higher on the list and that no one voted for it. It has the cliche bad boy and quiet girl fall in love start. But the more you read the more plot twists emerge. There is even fighting and life and death situations. I highly recommend it. One of my top three favorites.
This manga should be way up on the list! I liked it a lot. It has a bit of a stereotypical plot but the atmosphere and the artwork are amazing. The girl that no one notices at school has a dark secret and the handsome cool guy has a dark past. They fall in love and (no spoilers) but really it's a mature (not in that way) emotion centred manga.
I recommend it... It's one of my top 5
Probably the manga that encouraged me to read more shoujo mangas. the story seemed like a cliche at first but developed into a complicated plot which well have you glued to your screen. the main characters' mature whilst the story develops embodying emotions felt by the protagonists. I highly recommend this manga to anyone 10/10

42Kodocha
I saw this manga and I thought I had to vote for this one. It was dramatic, hilarious, and romantic at the same time. It's a real heart grabber that I have read multiple times (around 13 times? ) definitely worth reading!
Similiar to gakuen Alice, it is very cute with drama, humor (a crazy mom? Hell yeah! ), a little lemon here and there. A popular young actress clashes w/the leader delinquent o her 6. Th grade class. Family, pshvological (? ) problems included I will give it a 4
This manga was really sweet, I loved the love triangle which stood out over all others because of its featuring 12-year-olds!

43Beast Master
I love Beast Master! Very cute story
It's a total MUST READ manga the ending is very cute and happy :3

44Switch Girl!!

45Shugo Chara
Awesome magical girl manga about a girl just trying to find out who she wants to be. It's cute, funny, and overall enjoyable. At its time it was pretty popular, especially for an anime that never got an english dub.
It's about a girl named Amu who is the cool and spicy person in the school but finds she has magical powers when three faiths called Charas show up and help her become who she wants to be
Really awesome! This should be way higher than 42! It's a amazing manga, I recommend you all read it!

46Cardcaptor Sakura
48th place? Come on, people! I think people overlook this manga because it seems childish. Well, it is meant to be for kids, but anyone else can enjoy it because of its brilliant characters, lovely artwork and great plot, and also for the underlying themes it has running through it. It taught me a lot about life, friendship and love. It's probably my favourite manga, and so I think it should at least be in the top 10!
This was my first anime ever, and it is still my favorite. It's a cute story with a hint of romance, and Sakura's adventure to becoming a cardcaptor is one will make anyone smile.
I love this anime and manga so much. I don't think it desserve to be in 48th place ( no defense ) I though it has to be in TOP 10. Some people please explain to me why it only TOP 50... I'm I the only one who crazy about this manga?

47Gentlemen's Alliance
I'm actually shocked no one has voted forth is story, since it has tons of drama, romance, and lots of messy, tangled love stories. I highly recommend it to everyone. Plus, it was drawn by Arina Tanemura!

48Itazura Na Kiss
It, s a must read and see shoujo. You can read the manga, watch the anime or dorama and you will love them all. The history is about a girl (kotoko) who loves someone ( irie) and fight for this one-sided love in a very funny and persistent way. She don't give up and then... Read the manga ;) it's lovely and funny. Must read! Why it's not in the list? I'm surprised
Itazura na Kiss is such a classic manga. Any shoujo lovers should read it because its where all the cliche love mangs come from.
I really really love irie... Kya he makes me feel I want him in the real world. :3

49Ao Haru Ride
This is on of the mangas that I truly loved it has drama and romance in it this is definitely a must read... Iam still expecting the next chapter... I really like the author's style and plot of her mangas
The start of the story is really nice. It gives you the really nice feels, kind of like a nostalgic and kind of sad feeling.

501/2 Prince
This manga is an amazing manga. in the beginning, the girl seemed very simple minded and happy-go-lucky. as she creates a legend with her team, she learns the heavy duty of responsibility. She develops from the happy-go-lucky character to one that has great empathy for others.
Overall, the artwork was pretty good and the storyline developed well. This story is like Sword Art nline in some ways, but uniquely different from Sword Art Online
Sorry that I'm rambling, but I think this should definitely be in the top ten
This is a great manga, the Odd Squad is epic
I like Ugly Wolf, this manga also has a lot of humor, and the plot is very well-developed

51First Girl

52Himitsu no Ai-chan

Kaori is one of my favorite mangaka. Always creating engaging story lines and her art is gorgeous. Love the fashions of her characters~


53Basara
Though Basara is commonly overlooked by avid manga readers (I admit, it took me three tries to actually get into the story), but once you really understand what's going on, it becomes amazing. Since it is an older manga, the art definitely takes a little getting used to, but the amazing characters (Sarasa is just plain badass and Shuri is awesome) and their even cooler backstories (ohh dramatic irony! ), you will definitely love this manga. (If you haven't heard about this manga before, it's about a "child of prophecy", who was supposedly Sarasa's twin brother, Basara, being able to right the world from the tyranny of the "kings", who constantly fight with each other to gain territory, slaughtering many villagers in the process. After Basara is killed by the Red King, Shuri, Sarasa must pretend that she is him and lead a revolution, of which the first target is the Red King. Sarasa and Shuri fall in love without realizing who the other really is... It's the best! )
It is a really good manga- Highly recommended to any type of manga readers because it has a plot to die for, and the drawing in my opinion is absolutely beautiful, breath taking if I must exaggerate, take this advice from who read this manga. Over all I would give this manga a 10 out of 10 LOVE IT!

54The One
I mean seriously? Guys, if you like Skip Beat, you're gonna love this manga! I fell in love with Lele in a matter of minutes and the story really touches you. Yea, it has it's bad moments; where I wince: "Lee Nicky! WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING?! " Or times when I bawl my eyes out after being touched by a sentimental scene. Very heart warming and has great comedy too. I find myself laughing when reading and often see my friends give me weird looks! Well, for those who like romance in a manga; this is it people! You have the full package! Read it. Spread the word. Then read it again! Sad to say this manga has not been fully scaned yet. You can read it online at Mangafox. Or download the app Mangastorm.

55Hana to Akuma
The demon duke, Vivi, went to the real world. When he was walking into his house, there was a baby crying. He was annoyed so Vivi took her in. And when Hana (the baby girl) grew, she always clings to Vivi...

And many more potions that Hana, drank.. She will turn into adullt which will make Vivi's heart beat going fast...

It has a good artwork, the imagination of the author is very wise, the story is WORTH READING, sometimes it will leave you WANTING MORE.

56Hibi Chouchou
Hibi Chouchou is a must read. The story might seem boring since both characters are extremely shy but that's what makes it distinct from the other shoujo mangas. Overcoming their weakness in order to express their feelings to the one they loved is courageous. Also, the characters are cute and adorable especially Suiren (the heroine).
I love this manga it is a must read it is very funny and very cute
I <3 It's story and I hope they'll update it As Early As Possible.

57Cat Street

58Happy Cafe

60Peach Girl
I love this manga so much! :) it was the very first manga that got me into reading this stuff.
So good! Ends up with the right guy but you feel bad in the end
Why is this not higher? Kiley and Momo deserves better! Yeah, Toji and Sae too. But seriously. This manga is awesome! If you want a kick ass female heroine (Momo) who'd never let a bully get the best of her and a perverted handsome guy (Kiley) who becomes her bestfriend and always there for her... Then what are you waiting for? Read this now. It doesn't disappoint and you may even find yourself rooting for funny Kiley than nice Toji. KILEY FOREVER! :))

61Orange
Beautiful story, and very interesting.

62The World Only God Knows

64Glass Mask
Love this one... I don't understand why it isn't in top 10. Maya is great, I wish I could have seen her crimson goddess. This is unique and enjoyable I wish so much that it hadn't finished this is damn good. I love it's plot a clumsy and absentminded girl (that's like me) becomes an actress (not like me) but still it is one of the best manga... Vote for it guys
Awesome. Just awesome. The art might be a bit old but the plot is just so amazing. Glass Mask is absolutely beautiful to read.
Please vote this. :-)

66Koko Ni Iru Yo!
Can't believe this wasn't added. This manga was the first shoujo manga I had ever read and I have read a lot and personally I believe this this manga has to be one of the best I have seen. It is cute, had a fresh story line (and isn't too cliche) and the love triangle is too die for and the artist put some interesting twists in there too...

Plot-Hikage is a reclusive 8th grader who no one seems to notice her. She finds comfort by planting a sunflower at school and in her blog, with only 2 people who comment on it, MegaPIG and Black Rabbit. They listen and give Hikage advice on everything. But, everything changes one day when two cute boys notice her. These boys are the most popular kids in the entire school, Teru and Hinata. When one of them tells her something that she's always wanted to hear, she might change to be like her classmates...
Will she by loved by everyone in the class?

67Akuma De Sourou
The art is amazing, and you fall in love with all of the guys you see. I've been looking for a shoujo manga that has characters that are extremely attractive and boy did I find it. The story is deep and great, you won't regret it
Its a wonderful manga. It's heart rendering as we read on and on. The characters are very relateable and the manga lead boy is amazingly hot. And its taiwan live drama is a hit on television A MUST READ MANGA!

68Dakedo Happy Paradise
It's about a girl who was left by her father leaving her an amounts of debt. Now she went to a place where she was hired to be a housekeeper by three super cool and hot guys... Will she be able to live there peacefully? Or will she able to find true love?

69Moe Kare!!

77Love So Life
Love so life is my second favorite rite next to fruits basket. Both the female protagonists have this kind of healing kind of motherly vibe to it which I think everyone can enjoy
LOVE LOVE SO LIFE! Amazing Manga that delves into the heart ache and love of being a child caretaker.
When I found out this wasn't in the list yet, I was like 'WHAATT? '
I mean, seriously! This super-cute manga is not on the LIST? (? )
Its not just romantic cute, its BABY cute.
Two out of 4 of the main characters are little toddler twins! (2 yrs at first) Girl and Boy, Akane and Aoi. The other 2 MCs, the romance couple (! ), are Shiharu: a high school student and orphan whose dream is to run a nursery/daycare, and Matsunaga, an uncle of the twins, and also their guardian, since their mother died and their father ran away from the stress (=orphans! TT^TT).
The story is just so cute! The twins are adorable! Stop what you're reading, and go read this now. Or at least have a look and bookmark/favourite it or something. You'll regret not! Repeat: Its BABY. CUTE.

Vote! Vote! Vote!

82The Sky is Near The Red River
I love this story. It has an amazing plot, and the characters are so appealing, usually I don't like the female characters in any manga because they all are too mainstream and cheesy, but the main character is so different, believe it or not she makes me want to change, she inspired me to become a better me. It's a very romantic and sexy story that anyone would enjoy, with a fair share of war and wit. Anyone with a broad imagination, and a deep fantasizer like myself would love to read this, I advise all girls out there who yearn for love to read this it will fill your empty hearts!

83Love Monster
If you love monsters and you wanna see a romance between a young cute girl and a very handsome perv crow-guy.. Here you have everything with a dose of ecchi, comedy and supernatural stuff, even other interesting mythological creatures, maybe is not perfect but is unique and enjoyable if you wanna feel a funny, cute and struggling love story... If you ask me, I love/hate that handsome crow-guy.

84Hakushaku to Yousei
Short but awesome. All the characters are very attractive. Lydia a tomboy, Edgar a flirt, Nico with bad manners, Raven cute, strong but emotionless, Kelpie with a bad attitude (loves Lydia). Anyways I don't want to spoil your fun so please watch the anime as well as read the manga. (>O<)/
