      I usually don't like shoujo, but I really liked these three.

      Strobe Edge
      Synopsis: Having no experience in romance, the vibrant Ninako curiously explores the meaning of what "love" really is, and is surprised to feel a colorful range of emotions as she grows closer to the school heartthrob, the quiet yet gentle Ren, who also happens to be involved in a longtime relationship. With every intention of keeping her head held high, Ninako prepares to face the mental pain of this one-sided love that she had allowed to take root, facing a series of trials that would either contribute to her growth as a headstrong woman, or break her as it did with other girls.

      However, is this really a one-sided love? Or had something been silently sown in the most hidden part of Ren's heart?

      Synopsis: Asuka Masamune is a badass. Really. He is a tough, cool, 2nd year high school guy who is also a master at kendo. He exudes an aura of manliness that is difficult to deny. Everyone at school admires him. But for Asuka, life is torture. You see, he can never show the *real* Asuka to the world. While he is phenomenal at kendo, and looks very cool, Asuka is living a lie. He actually prefers much more girly things: knitting, cooking, sewing, shoujo manga, plushies, cute things - he loves them all. When he was a child, this worried his mother very much, as Asuka's father abandoned the family after declaring he wanted to be a woman. The shock made his mother so ill that Asuka swore to become a more manly man.

      Poor Asuka. Bound to this promise, he goes through his life acting macho and cool, when all the while he would much rather read the latest Hana to Mame comic at the book store and dream of a shoujo manga romance. When Asuka rescues a female classmate, Ryou Miyakozuka, from some bullies, he instantly falls in love with her, and his desire for cute things and sparkly shoujo romance is reawakened!

      Koukou Debut
      Synopsis: Haruna Nagashima gave her all to softball in middle school, and now that she's made her high school debut she's decided to give her all for a new goal. Getting a boyfriend and falling in love!

      However, she has one small problem. Since she never paid any attention to fashion or trend in middle school she has no idea how to go about attracting her yet-to-be-found love. But a chance encounter with with Yoh Komiyama provides her with the opportunity she needs. If he coaches her in how to become attractive, surely she can find herself a boyfriend!

                    Here's some manga that I really like.

                    Aiki (Warning there's a huge amount of mature content)
                    Somewhere in Japan, a private high school named Juzenji exist, where all of the students know some one form of combat or another. However due to absence the chairman power struggle occurs between granddaughter of chairman and the daughter of principal. The granddaughter of chairman Kizuki finally ask for help from a man named Kunitoshi Joukyuu, a genius when it comes to martial arts. Even though Joukyuu is the perfect person to step in to intervene, Joukyuu only does things that pleases him, such as making his life exciting or getting busy with women.

                    I really love this because, unlike other martial art manga's, the protagonist doesn't have the cliche heroic always-thinking-of-justice attitude. He's really perverted, funny, and sadistic. :P

                    A manga that Kristy recommended to me was really good. It's called :
                    Switch Girl
                    Revolves around a high school student named Nika, who appears to be a stylish and fashionable girl at school, but that’s really a fake persona that she uses when she’s in public. At home, she “switches off” the facade and her returns to her true slovenly nature. Kiriyama Renn plays the good-looking transfer student Arata, who is Nika’s love interest in the story

                    Really hilarious manga that you'd want to read.

                    1/2 Prince
                    A futuristic world where surreal virtual reality games exist. The protagonist is a 19 year-old female student named Feng Lan, who is challenged into playing the nearly arrived game Second Life by her twin brother. As the first person to log into the game, Feng Lan is given a wish which she uses to give herself the privileged of creating a male avatar whom she names as Prince.

                    If you're into RPG online based manga, this is for you. (Sword Art Online is also good)

                    I have more.. but.. yeah. I'll be taking up 32482309 pages.

                            all shoujo btw,

                            Dengeki Daisy - “No matter what happens, I’ll protect you.” Teru, who lost her only remaining relative, her older brother, is cheered on by a mail from an enigmatic person, DAISY, who she can contact via the cellphone her brother gave her. One day, through an unexpected incident, Teru ends up working as a servant for the delinquent school janitor, Kurosaki. But this scoundrel, Kurosaki is really…!?

                            Remei no Arcana - "On that day, I became the enemy's possesion," Nakaba thought as she stood there, knowing her destiny was to be married for convenience to keep the peace between her country Senan and Prince Caesar's country, Belquat; two neighbor countries on a island. Between the two countries there has been a constant war for 200 years and Nakaba has become a sacrificial goat for her country despite the discrimination to her red hair and to the 'sub-person' (half-human, half-animal) Loki, who is her only friend and attendant at Caesar's estranged palace. But what will Nakaba do when she foresees an event pertaining to Prince Caesar's demise? Will she save him? Or let him die in return to all the hate directed towards her by the people of Belquat? (+ fantasy & historical)

                            Gold (FUJITA Kazuko) - Mars knows that nothing will stop him from tracking down his wife, Chantal, who'd betrayed him and sent him to prison for a crime he didn't commit. Chantal had died--or so everyone said--but Mars knew she'd merely transformed herself and reemerged into the spotlight as supermodel Mischief Jones. (mature)

                            Silver (FUJITA Kazuko) - Geraldine Francis is the innocent daughter of a wealthy aristocrat. Being sheltered all her life, she is oblivious to her cousin Charles' true intentions when he lures her in and makes her fall hopelessly in love with him. It is only after the murder of her father that she realizes his love was nothing but love for the money and the land that came with her name. She vows revenge, and she throws away her past in order to become "Silver," the perfect woman. With a new face, and a new lease on life, she will turn the tables on the man whom she once loved so that this time, it is he who will be left with nothing. (mature)

                            S.L.H - On the eve of her sixteenth birthday, Kozue Hiyoki is visited in her dreams by a man who steals her heart- literally! Determined to find him and retrieve her stolen heart, Hiyoki, with the color of the man’s hair and the tattoo on his chest as her only leads, enrolls in the S-Hall dormitories of St. Nazareth Academy, but quickly realizes that its residents are not at all like she expected… For starters, they’re all guys!

                            There, Hiyoki soon discovers that she has the ability to look inside her dorm-mates’ dreams, which may be the key to uncovering the identity of the thief who stole her heart…. But perhaps her biggest challenge is that most of the guys won’t let Hiyoki into their rooms, much less their hearts!

                            Barajou no Kiss - Most girls are crazy about jewelry, but not Anis Yamamoto. Not since her father gave her a rose choker as a child, claiming it was a protective amulet which would safeguard her from harm; however, if she ever took it off (a feat easier said than done!), she would be afflicted by a “punishment” of some sort. Not like it matters to her though, since the attention it attracts around school from faculty and students alike isn’t something she’s particularly fond of.

                            But after a certain incident causes the choker to disappear, she realizes that this punishment her father spoke of might have been a bit more than she bargained for!

                            Kyou Koi wo Hajimemasu - Tsubaki is a girl who loves making her younger sister's hair pretty every morning, but she doesn't think that kind of style suits herself! The day of her High School Beginning Ceremony, after she failed in being the top student (who usually makes the ceremony speech), she finds herself sitting next to the actual top student of the first years, the worst, rudest guy ever, Kyouta. She ends up cutting his hair on purpose because of the awful things he says to her. Kyouta demands that Tsubaki pays him back with her body, but Tsubaki fixes his hair instead--making it even shorter!
                            After that, Kyouta unexpectedly kisses Tsubaki and swears that he'll take away all her firsts. (mature)

                            Sukitte Ii na yo - Mei Tachibana has spent her 16 years without making either a boyfriend or friends. One day, she injures the most popular boy in school, Yamato Kurosawa, because of a misunderstanding but for some reason it seems that he takes a liking to her and one-sidedly claims that they’re friends. Furthermore, he not only protects Mei from a stalker, he does it with a kiss…?!!

                            is this too much? :C i have a lot more but didn't want to post like a whole bunch.
