A.C. Harrah | 434 comments Wow! I've actually read quite a few of these already. I'm looking at Arisa and Mars as potential ones.

I'm going to finish up Fruits Basket and continue Nana and Red River.

Kristen | 1392 comments Just so everyone knows, the volumes you read do not have to be from the same series. It can be any number of volumes from any number of the series in the list.

Samantha wickedshizuku Tolleson (wickedshizuku) | 25 comments Hi this notification just popped up, and I got curious. Turns out that I've already read 31 of these series over the years, but I'm still game to read more this coming year. What I'm not to sure of though is the list itself since several of the manga are Josei instead of shojo; so do they still count?

message 7: by [deleted user] (new)

Well, these challenges are for the members, so that's more your choice. The line between shoujo and josei is a little blurry and a lot of times you can't always tell. Hence, I'm reading Nana, even though it's josei.

Jean (otakumom) I'm reading Skip Beat 3-1 Vol 4. I love revisiting the earlier work and seeing what a long way both Ren and Kyoko has come.

Are we still allowed to add things to the list of essential shoujo? Because I'm reading something no one put there and it really seems like something that should be on there.

message 11: by [deleted user] (new)

You can add it to the list if you feel it belongs.
