Top Ten Shoujo Mangas

So when it comes to the best Mangas, we seem to see Naruto and One Piece etc dominate, having our poor Shoujo Manga being forgotten.

So this is a list of the best Shoujo's out there! I hope you enjoy ^_^

23 Tokyo Mew Mew Tokyo 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.

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!

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.

I hated Tokyo mew mew the main character pissed me off

24 Clannad Clannad

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!

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.

Nevermind this. Clannad is one of the most enjoyable anime T.V. series, as well as visual novels I have ever watched/played. It's made me cry more than any other anime/visual novel I have ever watched/played, but it's not a shoujo manga. There's a Clannad manga (which I wouldn't recommend anyone to look at) which was serialized in a shounen manga magazine.
TL;DR It's a great anime, and it's not shoujo.

26 Beauty Pop

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!

This is my favorite manga ever, I really wish to see more manga like this I really loved kiri, she's the best female lead ever!

I'd recommend Beauty Pop to any shoujo manga reader. The girl isn't weak, and her personality just makes me root for her. I can really relate to her and agree with her for everything (because we have similar personalities). Kiri's just so kyawaiii! YOU HAVE TO READ IT!

I love the storyline. It's cute and interesting. The hairstyles are so great and Kiri is my favourite character! She's got a totally awesome attitude which I love about her. She's carefree and calm about everything... How could I forget, it's Narumi X Kiri!

Amazing story about musical, comedy and of course "love"

28 Kurobara Alice
29 Suki Desu Suzuki-Kun

I love this manga. It is great and you can laugh and cry because of this. Even though it doesn't update it that much, you should definitely try it.

Love this manga. Wish it updated more but I can wait. It's well worth it.
You really feel for the Hikaru when he loses contact with Hoshino for two years. Then you are so happy when they meet again but find things have drastically changed.

I cried when I read it.. I really love it even tough its smut and the story its really complicated

I love this manga. I wish it update faster!

30 Black 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!

Oh come on. I feel the reason why this Manga is so low on this list is because people probably don't know it exists. I STRONGLY recommend you read this Manga,. It's beautiful, funny, VERY romantic and can even succeed in pulling your heartstrings during some of the more emotional scenes. It's amazing. Absolutely amazing. I find This TONS better than most of the Manga on this list.

I have one sentence for this manga: I simply like it.

Best manga I EVER read. It lets you feel all sorts of different emotions. Its seriously worth reading

31 The Wallflower

... Lots of sexy :) :D

I haven't actually read that much of this manga yet, but all of it that I've read so far was just hilarious. I'm sure it'll become one of my favorites!

Anime version is completed so I watched it too!

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.

32 La Corda d'Oro La Corda d'Oro La Corda d'Oro is a role-playing game series targeted at a female audience under the Neoromance series from Koei.

Although I was a bit dissapointed with the ending (ok no spoilers) this is a very nice manga to read! The flow and the plot line was excellently made! It's all about music, and you just don't know how musical of a person I am. So give it a go!

33 Omoi Omoware Furi Furare

It's a great story so far(at this point there are only 10 chapters in English and I also believe, Japanese). It's a love triangle, much rather a square, but it is also from the author of both Strobe Edge and Ao Haru Ride so it has great promise! I am currently loving it and hopefully the story will progress faster soon!

34 Sailor Moon Sailor 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.

I even bought the manga, it's so amazing, and the characters are lovely, so is the art style! I recommend it a lot.

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 it's 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.

WHAT!? This should be WAY up there! It should be number 1! This is like the best manga in the history of all mangas!

Come on, man it’s fully shounen. Shounen mangas have non-harem romantic comedies too. - Undistinguished

36 Momo

Momo was very interesting and cute! In this story, Mayu Sakai (also the mangaka of Sugar Soldier and rocking' Heaven) tells the story of 16-year-old Yume Odagiri, who meets a little girl named Momo, who in reality is a self-proclaimed "Devil" that destroys planets that do not meet her requirements! Unfortunatley, Earth is next on her list! When Momo asks Yume of what is her wish, Yume simply asks to be special. Momo grants it, and makes Yume the representative of the earth! Yume is now tasked to find seven reasons the earth is beneficial to cute little Momo, or risk the end of the earth and all humanity.

With a supernatural theme, underlying motifs of love and family, and gorgeous art, Mayu Sakai shines in this lovely shoujo series. A must read for fans of her other work!

37 Special A Special A

Special A is special because even though the plot is very common and all, you'll find that connection with the characters as you read on. Yeah yeah, there were times when I almost pulled all my hair off of my head due to Hikari's denseness but I guess you could say THAT is her character and she has such a very un-suspicious attitude, easy to trust and has no ill thoughts about others... Kei is! PERFECT! He knows WHEN to step forward and when not to when it comes to Hikari. He's hot and a gentleman at the same time. I like that the story is not JUST focusing on Hikari and Kei but also to the other characters in the story. This is not only a love story but a story about family, friends and dreams.

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

I've watched the anime and loved it so much! I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

I can not beleave this is not in the top ten! it is the funniest shoujo ever! the romance is slow as hell due to the heroine being so dense (poor kei) but the every day life of their friend and their stories and them falling in love will never get you bored. go read it now. you will laugh so hard that your eyes may pop.

38 Fullmoon 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.

Best shoujo anime ever! - Msptori

I just love this. I cried when I was reading the manga and when I watched the anime. This is just beautiful. It's about a boy and his friends. The boy is in a lot of pain due to his mother's death which he thinks is his fault and his friends help him. It's kind of like Ao Haru Ride and kinda seems cliche at first but there's a twist. The story literally goes across time and space which makes it better in my point of view. The story is beautifully written and every characters' emotion has been shown so gracefully. It's a masterpiece and it honestly deserves a better spot then 56.

I both cried reading the manga and watching the movie. Probably the best manga I've ever read : distinct plot and strong friendship. Love the romance, so pure and loveable without having to show unnecessary scenes you get to see nowadays. I still can feel the strong love between them. RECOMMENDED, for sure.

I love romanced, tragedy, and school life to be mixed. And this one sure is the best. You'll cry every time you read this. No matter how many times you read it, it still give you the feels. Probably this one is the saddest manga ever.

Amazing! There's also an anime and live action if you're more into that

I loved it, how Ojou is so derpy, but also strong! And how the members of the Yakuza were not 100% evil. And that ending though! I forgot her name so I'll call her Ojou, but anyways, SPOILER ALERT x Ojou x Shin forever!
