The Contenders: Page 2

21 Lovely Complex

I believe this anime does not get enough attention. The story line is beautiful and it is one of my favorite anime. This anime will give you feels. Yes, feels. You will die of laughter. This anime is so adorable. But at times it could be so sad. Shows determination. Simply beautiful.

This anime is awesome! I couldn't stop laughing while watching it the story is original, the characters are pretty interesting and I liked the ending. It's one of the best animes I've ever watched.

Not just about romance. It's one of the funniest I've seen! Great characters, too! Not one is annoying.

It should be higher and if u think it should not be, go and watch this anime... true definition of romcom

22 Fruits Basket Fruits Basket

Everybody should watch this anime. It's super awesome.

The fact this isn't number one makes me question the point of this list.

It's so cute anime and have a great song

I love Fruits Basket! (It is in my user.) Tohru and Kyo�'s story is great! - DBZ_Precure_Naruto_BB_Furuba

23 Chihayafuru Chihayafuru Chihayafuru is a manga series written and illustrated by Yuki Suetsugu, serialised in Be Love and published by Kodansha.

Hands down one of the best anime I've ever watched. A must-see for those who are looking for a good shoujo anime! You'll fall in love with all the characters. The story is amazing and it completely sucks you in. I can't say enough nice things about it. Watch and see. You won't get enough!

Best shoujo anime for me. Sometimes it had me crying, happy, excited,(dem feels)... I don't know how to express this anime into words but I totally recommend it...I really, really can't wait for S3.

It's so good. You really feel the pain of the main character

What attracted me at first was the beautiful art (for both the anime and manga).. then the story, which shows great character growth for all of the team members. They recently made movies out of this, too :) can't wait to see them!

24 Cardcaptor Sakura Cardcaptor Sakura Cardcaptor Sakura, abbreviated as CCS and also known as Cardcaptors, is a Japanese shōjo manga series written and illustrated by the manga group Clamp.

This should be #1. this anime, by far, has the most well-written characters and story (innocent play to drama between the kids) than any other shoujo animes!

25 Gakuen Alice

One of the first anime that I watched has me captivated still. Such amazing characters although compared to the manga this seems like a prequel than the story. The anime that has me now following so many more.

Been 10 years since I watched this and it's still got this giddy effect on me. I still wish for more

If there were more seasons or perhaps if every part of the mangas from the beginning till the end were included in the anime with all that chubby soundtracks and those wonderful voices, it would have been the best anime ever

Absolute favorite anime/manga of all time..

27 Vampire Knight Vampire Knight

I fell in love with this anime, usually I don't like vampire anime in general and though it's a bit cheesy at times, it really has an amazing storyline. This is great if you love action and a bit of romance

If you like animes where the girl is always saved by the two guys that follows her, and get bitten by one, this is totally the anime for you. Personally I loved it.

Its like an animated version of twilight, totally gay

28 Clannad Clannad

Clannad and clannad after story is one of the best animes out there. There's not too much annoying drama like the 'I like that guy but he likes another girl and she likes him and his friend likes me and some other girl likes his friend and the girl that likes the guy I like and him love eachother but their parents won't let them be with eachother. what should I do' type of shoujo.

Wait what?! Why is this 26th? Clannad should be easily in the top 5! No questions asked. Whatbis wrong with you people?!

This anime made me cry happy and sad tears. ; u ;
So good!


29 Akatsuki No Yona

I never felt the romance was over done. I loved the action, plot, character development, and everything else you could possibly think of! This will forever be my favorite shoujo anime/manga!

Great manga that deserves to be at the top ten. This deserves a season 2!

One of the best anime I have seen!

30 The World Is Still Beautiful

Very touching, with heartwarming and romantic comedy. One of my favorite shoujo anime ever!

I love the song that she sings, it is so heartwarming

31 Ranma 1/2 Ranma 1/2 V 2 Comments
32 Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun

Very funny and would recommend, it has some romance but I'd say its more comedy

33 Kiss Him, Not Me!

It is amazing both in manga and anime to think that a fat and unattractive otaku girl who only like to watch handsome boys together turn in to an attractive and sexy girl and to have four boys falling in love with her is amazing and the main character is a strong and kind girl you should watch it I don't understand why is it number 38 it should be in the top 10.

34 Namaikizakari

Never get bore of it... Or thought that what the hell main lead is doing... Love it totally

Same as Kaichou wa Maid, but its with sport

One of the best! Never a dull moment! I love the characters so much!

The main characters are just amazing I love them and the plot is just sooo nice...!

35 ToraDora

It got me totally immerse, and I wanted more once it was over.
Unlike other anime, it's not all happiness, and some people really get hurt. There's a bit of harem going on, which I don't like much, but it's bearable.
I watched it all within 24 hours!

This was one of my first animes its really adorable and I love it so much - ameiicchi

Best shoujo anime though it had me crying in the end...

I love toradora but I'm pretty sure its shonen not shojo ( which does not mean that girls can't enjoy it to)

36 His and Her Circumstances

Can't believe it's not in the list yet. It could be discussed that it's not 100% shojo, but so could a few others in the list.
Great animation, adult themes, funny stuff.

37 Hibi Chōchō

One of the best manga I have ever seen, the art was nice, everything was nice, I'm sad that's there is no Anime for this

38 Acchi Kocchi

A very Funny Anime
It has little romance in it
And if your looking for a funny shoujo this is a must see

39 Hanasakeru Seishounen

I can't believe this isn't in the top 10. Though it's a well-done reverse-harem. The heroine rocks!

This anime is one of a kind. A very powerful main female character that possess the heart and mind that able to turn enemies into allies. Love the storyline, love the character and love the bishounen!

40 Love Live! School Idol Project Love Live! School Idol Project

... that's not a shoujo at all? Its destined to a male audience - TopiTaupe

Love Live! School Idol Project is based around the traditional girl's high school, Otonokizaka High School, which is about to close down. With the fate of the school on their shoulders, 9 students, Honoka, Kotori, Umi, Hanayo, Rin, Maki, Nico, Nozomi, and Eli, form a school idol group to help save the school.

I like the plot of this series. It's funny, dramatic and most definitely for all audiences. Make sure you also check out the second season and the movie!
