My fave shoujo manga is Strobe edge, and i'm happy to say it stands the test for the most part.
I wish there was a "male love rival is better than main love interest" because i've noticed that a lot in shoujo manga (that and the MC being cucked by the female rival)

I finished reading Boku to Kimi no Taisetsu na Hanashi, Our Precious Conversions not along time ago.
As you can see it doesn't hit any bingo point!
It was really good manga, however too damn short and thus a complete waste of potential.
Though not mentioned in the bingo, I'd say it hit another horrible trope/cliche in which the manga ends exactly at the point when the relationship becoming official.

I also read it but didn't finish it! It's very fun, their conversations are always interesting and the main characters are relatable (well, aside from being really beautiful). recommend/10
Sometimes in the summer I read awful shoujo manga for no reason. It's not even interesting, I don't know why I keep doing it. The worst I've read was Absolute Boyfriend, ok it wasn't too problematic
but it was so cliched and godawfully boring. He might look cute in this pic but don't let that fool you! I just googled it, can't believe they made movies out of it?
I liked the admittedly cliche premise though (the boyfriend is a robot) but the execution was bad, he was a robot just pretty much to justify his perfection and devotion to the MC. Does anyone know any actually good manga with a similar premise?
Anything Yuu watase writes is trash. I dunno why, but both Fushigi Yuugi and Ayashi no ceres suffered from her terrible writing. She has a decent male cast, but throws it all out the window for the Main girl/Mary sue lead all the time. And it's always filled with toxic
men trying to justify their love.

I'd love to see someone do one of these for peach girl. I only saw the anime and it was enough of a clusterfuck of intense shoujo drama I can't imagine how many years would be shaved off my lifespan if I read the manga

Agreed, despite the short length.
Azuma Kun is easily one of the best written shoujo male MCs. He is well rounded and interesting character;
* I really like the whole misogynist gentleman thing going on with him and the background story behind it.
As for Aizawa san, sadly she felt a bit merry sue-like and incomplete…I wish the author explored her character more like what are her hobbies etc, ass she did with Azuma kun.
*probably doesn't work here, but I still need to spoiler it somehow. >>73651
You're welcome!>>72093>but does anyone else really enjoy shoujo manga from the 70s-80s?
I read and watched Oniisama E, Dear Brother. I liked the anime more, it's pretty much the same story only with better art. Do you have any recommendations?
>The sparkly art style is kind of nostalgic even though I was never a Japanese girl living in that time period
I also feel nostalgic about previous decades from the 20th century, 50's and forward despite not living in that time period. I think it has to do with the fact that as kids/teens we still got to consume somehow bits here and there from those cultures whether it's through music, movies, etc.
The 70's-80's Japanese culture isn't fundamentally different from the West which Japan was still very influenced by at that point. E.G. You called see resemblance between early Licca dolls to Western dolls at that time such as Sindy doll.

Say I love you
Boring girl who bothers no one yet is still bullied. Misunderstanding ensues and she kicks eventual love interest. He immediately falls for her. Despite her having no personality.
She is very very plain looking, doesn't where any makeup and constantly frowns, wears borderline holly brown-esque like clothing all the while MC works part time as a model and looks like a japanese host from one of those host bars.
they have no real shared interests besides pets. Oh she gets a long way better with the other male love interest. MC actually comments on this.
MC best friend treats FeMC like shit and MC doesn't do much to stop it besides "hey I Luv her, stop it." It takes best friends girlfriend to get him to stop. Only stops because she threatens to dump him, not because he is a good person. He is seriously an asshole, says mean shit to and about FeMC while she is standing near him.
Love rival is a total Stacy. Tried stealing FeMC boyfriend and her group of friends. She works as a Model with MC and is adored by the whole school. MC was completely oblivious to Stacy's attempts to get in his pants, it took his ex girlfriend to set him straight.
Everything is poorly drawn. Everyone is stiff and rarely do the characters do anything besides stand. The proportions on everyone makes them look like stretched out pieces of bubblegum. The paneling is a joke and leads me to believe anyone can get paid making a manga is japan.
I didn't check the mary sue box because FeMC isn't shown to be good at much. She just frowns and waits for other characters to invite her to shit and tell her what the plan is.
FeMC version of the 'hyperventilation at seeing MC with another girl' is to shut down, go to her room and sulk.
It got a anime adaptation. The art is an improvement but they still have stretched out proportions.

Holy shit the bingo is so accurate it made me laugh out loud. I usually can't stand shoujo because of all the reasons listed in it but here's mine. It's like someone used Keiko Suenobu's mangas as a framework for it.

Shitty Manga from 2004
Main girl gets sexually assaulted/forced make out with MC1, legit calls him a "Asshole prince"
FeMC is semi popular and goes to a karaoke bar with her friends. She meets a guy who looks like Asshole Prince (MC1). Misunderstanding ensues and she finds out it's not asshole prince MC1. MC2 is completely different in terms of personality. Also, MC1 has blue eyes and MC2 has brown.
FeMC is so fucking stupid she believe when MC1 tells her "I'm MC2 other half, I come out when he doesn't know."
Later find out MC1 and MC2 are half brothers (it was pretty fucking obvious) MC1 is quarter white but still has blue eyes. They share a father. MC1 grandfather hates him because he looks like the guy who hurt his daughter, thats why he acted like an ass and slept around he was "Looking for luv"
MC2 and FeMC start dating. MC1 is jealous and "Luvs her" despite them having no real conversation besides "She's cute" MC2 only dates her because she is "Cute and innocent."
MC1 saves FeMC from almost being raped. later forces her down and shoves his tongue down her throat. He does this a few times.
MC2 and FeMC and MC1 go out for drinks with the karate club. MC2 and FeMC both get drunk. MC1 takes FeMC to his apartment attempts to rape her but stops because "I love her and can't embrace her yet!" don't forget, she is passed out.
FeMC gets sick and MC2 gives her the medicine she can't swallow by putting water in his mouth with the pills and feeding her the pills that way.
MC2 former flame, a Stacy comes back in the picture and tries to break up MC2 and FeMC. FeMC hyperventilates when she hears MC and stacy talking about her. Stacy saves MC2 from getting owned by a bus and gets owned herself. MC2 and FeMC go to have sex and let's herself get dump because he is such a nice person and she knows he will dump her to date and take care of stacy and yes he more or less admits he was planning on doing just that.
FeMC sulks, cuts her hair and spends more time with MC1. FeMC ends up falling for MC1 so they date. MC2 comes back around. FeMC lands her self in the school hospital, semi passed out and MC2 kisses her thinking she is asleep. FeMC and MC realize they still like each other.
anyways, the two brothers fight for her love. MC1 loses on purpose but FeMC chooses MC1 anyways. They end up having a kid.
FeMC is the biggest damn cry baby and just a complete airhead.She is considered cute by others so I didn't check that once box. I did Check Marysue because everyone besides the stacy and other stacy like girls, adore her.
It's poorly drawn with almost every page filled with pentagon patterns.The authors art has not improved since. Her latest Manga looks on par with what Moe Kare is, except the colours are a lot better.
Hahahhaha yeah after a while I just couldn't bear reading it anymore so I just skipped to the end to see what would happen, it was total bullshit and I didn't miss a thing by skipping half of the manga.
I did that with ayashi no ceres too, and it was exactly the same bullshit ending, the girl chooses the "special magical perfect" guy in the end but he dies!!!
I first read it when I was 17 or so. So I was more wise to just how fucked up it was. I stuck through because I was shocked how the guys could like this girl who really offers nothing in terms of personality besides "she looks cute."
Yeah the Author really seems to love the whole "A male love interest (because there is often more than one) shoves the protagonist down and attempts to rape her but stops."
Yeah the soccer one! I think I was trying to read that one as the chapters were slowly coming out and I just gave up Another annoying mary sue protagonist.
