Due to getting gifts this time of year, many people become introduced to the genre of shoujo manga this way. This being the case, I often come across people looking for more manga like certain series they first read. For this purpose, I thought I’d make a guide list of sorts. An “if you like XX then try this” kind of thing. While shoujo is a pretty broad genre, it can be divvied up into dominant story types. Some titles don’t fit exclusively in one category so I tried to pick the dominant feature. (For instance Kamisama Kiss though a supernatural story is also a romantic comedy. ) I decided to stick with English published series only for this article.
If you like High School Dramas you might like:
If you like Historical Pieces or Fantasy you might like:
If you like Supernatural stories you might like:
This is not a completely exhausted list by any means. It’s just a starting point for new readers. SO if I left off your favorite series – sorry about that! I tried to collect titles from different publishers to be fair. Hope this helps new readers out there, and maybe some of you looking for new series to try as well!
