It has a lovely art style and nice soundtrack. Lots of items on here are not shoujo anime.

8 Ai Yori Aoshi Ai Yori Aoshi Ai Yori Aoshi is a Japanese seinen manga written and illustrated by Kou Fumizuki and serialized from 1998 to 2005 in Hakusensha's Young Animal.
9 Yuki Yuna is a Hero

Yuki Yuna is a hero is one of the best magical girl anime, if not best anime of all time. It's a remarkably well made show, and is not given enough credit by stupid people on the internet who can't handle more than two shows with similar themes. The same people who can't handle two films about a Mexican holiday. Grow up already. Two things are allowed to be similar. Nothing will ever be wholy unique. In fact, I'd go as far as to argue that Yuki Yuna is a hero is a better version of an anime that is widely beloved. What anime? My hero academia. Yuki Yuna takles the themes my hero academia trys to tackle with far better handling of those issues.

Not to mention, do you people just not have eyes? It doesn't take an animation expect to see that Yuki Yuna has amazing animation. In conclusion, grow up. Stop complaining because two anime are slightly similar. Give something a chance, and actually bother to watch the whole first season before you quit

This show was my 2016, my 2017, and my 2018! Long live Yuki Yuna is a Hero! - Alvin1

As much as I hate this, I have to admit it deserves some credit for gorgeous animation - MLPFan

How could you hate this? Sure it’s not Madoka Magica, but it’s perfect for a happier version that still has its sad and dark moments. The characters are all great, and the animation is fantastic! - Meredy_FT
