So by apparent definition; josei is a genre above shoujo, garnered for the taste of those at a more mature age than the general “Shugo Chara” or “Fresh Pretty Cure” fan. They tend to also not be eccentrically “girly” or “cinderella story”. These anime/manga tend to include more complicated plots/sub-plots and intense language/scene in comparison to shoujo. However that does NOT mean all the characters have to be out of highschool or with children and job already. That also means they are more entertaining!! lol ok jokes aside what is your favorite shoujo manga/anime? What do you think deserves to be called the ULTIMATE josei?
My vote goes to: KURAGEHIME
Strong contenders: peach girl, bad pet, skip beat, kare kano, kechonpa
