SHOUJO MANGA RECOMMENDATION (PT2)

Hi! This year’s vacation opened the windows for me to explore new plots and characters of the shoujo genre. Who would have thought that I would stick to this genre up to this very day. There are just too much feels that could not be resisted and so many ships that have sailed (and some that we wished have sailed). 

Just like my very first reco (which can be found here), most of the mangas on this list are ongoing (during the time I have made this post). I can say that reading an on-going manga gives me thirlling moments such as wondering who will end up with whom, debating why the characters came up with such decisions, empathizing with the characters’ past and so on . It gives me something to look forward to. And these mangas, I guarantee, would provide you emotions that you have been longing for. 

The titles will be listed starting from the left side. Summaries of this oh-so-good mangas are readily available in the web. If in case you have questions, you can send me a message here (I would really love to hear from you guys; I would also want to know your reco) or just click that chat button. 

  1. Risouteki Boyfriend (Ayase Umi)^
  2. Doukyuusei ni Koi o Shita (Miasa Rin)^
  3. Honey Lemon Soda (Murata Mayu)^
  4. Kimi wa Kawaii Onnanoko (Ichinohe Rumi)^
  5. Yagami-kun wa Kyou mo Ijiwaru (Aikawa Saki)^   
  6. Sabaku no Harem (Yumeki Mitsuru)^
  7. Kyou no Kira-kun (Mikimoto Rin)*
  8. Jigoku no Enra (Shimada Chie)*
  9. Fujiwara-kun wa Daitai Tadashii (Hinachi Nao)^   
  10. Ashita no 3600-byou (Konno Risa)^ 

Legend: * Completed  ^On-going

I hope you will have the best time of your life while reading these mangas! Ja ne! (I might be able to post a reco on short-chaptered mangas next time- Well, if time will be kind to me)

Date Headcanons- Gentlemen

Genji

  • He most likely hasn’t been on a date since before his cybernization. So when he suddenly has to plan a date for you, he’s gonna pull out all his old notes
    • He may have to tweak these notes a bit since they include sexual teasing throughout the date and end with an invitation back to his place
    • He’ll cross out those bits and try to replace them with more gentlemanly things
  • There are a few potential places he might take you–the arcade, the aquarium, the mall, his place (whoops forgot to cross that off his old list)
    • But at some point, he’ll take you for some ramen. Assuming he can’t eat in his new body, he may have a bit of wistful aura about him, but he’ll just be happy if you enjoy his favorite food.
  • No matter where he takes you, he’s going to buy you something to remember the date by (so make sure to make little remarks of things you might want him to get ^.-)
  • Overall, his dates are the classic shoujo high school boyfriend date. He takes to dates like a fish to the ocean.

McCree

  • If Jesse gets to plan the date, he’s going to have some ideas in mind
  • And ideal spot for him would be one of the campy shooting galleries where all those cut-out animals pop out. It’s a good chance for him to show off to his date and get real close to them as he shows them how to aim properly
  • Do you like horsies? McCree’s ridden a few in his life, and he’d love a day where he can teach you to ride western style. The two of you could go on a nice trail ride~
  • Every date with him will end with him offering to buy you two drinks. It’s kind of a cowboy courtesy
    • If you want to impress him, here, try out-drinking him! But be careful because that can be very difficult

Reaper

  • Date? When was the last time this man went on a date? He hardly ever had time for that back in his Overwatch days, and he hardly has time now that he’s a deadly assassin. Besides, Death doesn’t do dates…
  • But not even this guy can deny wanting to spend more time with his significant other, and whether he wants to admit it or not, that’s called a “date”
  • He’d say something along the lines of “So…you wanna go…kill some stuff?”
    • Lol yes dates for him are just missions where you two work together. He’s not very creative.
    • Maybe once you two start getting closer, he’ll ask to hang out with you a bit after the mission. Do some weapon maintenance back in his quarters, do some talking, take off his mask…
  • But if you really want a more formal courtship with him, you’ll have to try suggesting some more acceptable dates. Even just taking him to the practice shooting range and swapping combat techniques!
    • Once he gets used to spending time with you without murdering other people, you can move on to sharing meals together
  • He’ll want your undivided attention on these dates. Don’t look at other guys, and he better not catch any guys looking at you.

Soldier: 76

  • Jack also hasn’t been on the date scene in a while, but he’s more accustomed to being a charming young man than Gabe is. He had to do a bit of posing as the Strike Commander, and I’m positive he had a few admirers.
  • So I’d like to think he knows the basics of a classic, old fashioned date: dress nice, maybe bring some flowers, give some complements, take them out for dinner. That sort of thing
  • Even though he knows the basics, good luck getting him to following them now. 76 will be caught up in the fact that he’s too old to be dating or that he’s got no time for courtship now that he’s a vigilante.
  • But if somehow you’ve got him arranging to take you out for a night on the town, good on you!
    • He’ll be much more awkward than he used to be, blushing, stumbling over his words, rubbing his neck
    • He’s just very nervous that he’s so old yet out on a date of all things!
    • Nevertheless, he’ll try to be the gentlest, sweetest date he can be. Though there may be some places he can’t go or he may be recognized…
  • After your night out, he’ll insist on walking you home so that you’re safe, and give you a quick kiss before saying goodbye

Hanzo

  • Uuuuuhh…..What? A date? What’s he supposed to do for one of those?
  • You can bet that the first time you ask for a date with Hanzo, it’ll be his first date ever.
  • Now don’t get me wrong, he had a lot of admirers growing up who asked him out, but he shot them all down simply because he didn’t think the heir of his clan should be going around and wasting his time with girls
    • But now he’s kind of regretting turning those dates down because now he has no idea what to do…
    • He tries to remember what Genji used to do for his dates, but he quickly remembers how short-lived Genji’s relationships were, and quickly dismisses that idea
  • Hanzo’s probably written down a list of ideas, all of which he’s crossed out. Oh dear, this is really stressing him out
    • In the end, he’ll decide to take you out for tea in a nice, zen garden (even better if the cherry blossoms are in bloom!). At first, things will be very stiff and awkward, but just try to get him to talk a bit, and the ice will quickly break

Junkrat

  • Ooh! Shopping! If you know Junkrat’s definition of shopping is, though…
    • Blowing up a mall and stealing everything in the process, starting with the milk tea shop!
    • He just wants to show his partner his favorite things in life: explosions, mayhem, and boba!
  • But he gets it if his s/o isn’t into really loud explosions and arson…I guess he could steal some milk tea prior to the date and bring it over to your place. He’ll bring over some (stolen) action movies, too.
    • Don’t be surprised if he tries to start a tickle fight
  • The first few dates he plans might involve Roadhog, and you may have to teach him that your later dates don’t need a third wheel. Roadie is a good third wheel, though– very quiet and unobtrusive.
  • Do you like drag racing? Motorcycles? He’d love to try that with you sometime!
  • Once you start going on more frequent dates, you’ll suddenly notice that they’re not always dates…but heists…
    • “Jamison.” Roadhog grunts, “Why did you bring your date?”
    • “Wot? Why not? Kill two birds with one stone: bonding time and crime! Y’know, mate?”

Torbjorn

  • He’s already dating his turrets and his wife.

Reinhardt

  • This old man would be so excited to be going on a date at his age. He always assumed those days were over for him, but he looks so happy and bashful now that he’s out with his s/o~
  • He’s the kind of guy who will be happy with anything that his partner wants to do. As his date talks, he’ll sit there happily, taking every word they speak
  • A total hand-holder, he’ll want your little hand in his as often as possible
  • He’s a bit like Soldier in that he prefers more old fashioned dates
    • Take you out for dinner, maybe see a play/movie before
    • If you really want to impress him, suggest an old fashioned movie like “M” or “Treasures of the Sierra Madre.”
  • When he drops you off at home for the night, he’s going to be a little hesitant to give you a good night kiss…he’s still a little hung-up on being too old to do this again…I mean does he kiss them or not? What if they pull back?
    • So you may need to stand on your tippy-toes and give him a peck yourself~

Roadhog

  • Unlike Junkrat, he’d be more understanding of what a date is. He won’t take you on any arson missions or heists…unless you want to of course!
  • He’ll take you to the arcade and show you how good he as the crane game and win all the Pachimarus!
    • He never loses because he just smashes the glass…sorry. So, he’s still going to commit a bit of felony on your dates.
  • If you want to avoid crime with him, do the same as Junkrat, invite him over and watch some action movies!
    • He’ll want you to sit on his lap. Bonus points if you make a big bowl of popcorn for him!
  • During your first few dates, Mako will keep the mask on. But eventually he’ll start lifting it up just enough to eat that popcorn you made for him.
    • Then one day, out of nowhere, he’ll just take off his mask and set it on the coffee table without any warning. It’s ok if you need to stare for a bit.

Lucio

  • A fun date for Lucio would be some good old fashioned clubbing! He’ll try to pick a night when he isn’t the DJ so that he can be dancing in the crowd with you!
  • If clubbing isn’t really your thing, he’s ok with that. He’ll take you to an album store (yes, they have those in 2077) and browse the stacks with you, swapping music tastes
    • Then you can take the albums you guys bought (and by that I mean he paid for them) back to his place or your place and listen to them. He might even share some of his works in progress songs
    • Who knows, your music taste may just inspire his next song~

Zenyatta

  • I doubt this monk has ever been on a date in his life. Maybe he’s a little nervous, but more confused than anything else…
    • So the point is to show the one you’re infatuated with a good time? But what if he doesn’t know everything about them? How will he know any specific things that they dislike?
    • He’ll definitely ask Genji for help
  • In the end, the two will devise a lovely date consisting of a nice nature walk ending with a peaceful picnic
    • You may find that dates with Zen can go from nice and talkative to quiet and enjoying each other’s presence. He’s the type that can just sit there and take in the calmness and serenity of the situation
    • He might even teach you some meditation while you’re out!

Shoujo manga recs?

Oh lovely anon, I had fun with this, probably too much fun.  You see, I got a little carried away and ended up making a list of 12, which isn’t so bad, but then I had to go into fangirl mode and explain while they’re all so delightful.  I really urge you and anyone else looking for some new shoujo to try one of these!

Akatsuki No Yona: If you’ve seen the anime and enjoyed it, I strongly recommend reading the manga from the beginning.  I’m not going to say much else about this one since the majority of you know it, but seriously, give Yona a go, you won’t be disappointed.

Kanata Kara: Oldie but goldie, as in it’s from the 90s (please don’t let that deter you).  This manga follows Noriko, a girl transported to another world. Upon arrival she meets the traveling warrior, Izark, and their adventure begins.   Kara is one of my favorites; it does a wonderful job juggling action, adventure, and adorable romance.  As an aside, I love the fact Noriko doesn’t just know the language in the new world but has to learn it during her travels.

Last Game: Though this series does encompass a lot of stereotypical shoujo clichés, it’s also delightfully fresh.  Unlike most, LG takes place in a university setting, and it’s the hero who has been in love with the heroine for a long time.  Ten years, actually.  Too bad he can’t just manage to spit that out.  Also, did I mention she’s pretty much better than him in everything? Bring on the rivalry love (I’m having Special A flashbacks).  

Fushigi Yuugi Genbu Kaiden: This is what I like to joking call “the original AkaYona.”  We have our chosen girl who is prophesied to save the country, and the warriors she must collect in order to do so.  One of the really cool twists in this story is that not all the warriors are men, and even more than that, all the men aren’t in love with her, save her love interest.  The heroine is also quite mature and not completely inept when it comes to combat.  Fair warning: there are a lot of deaths, have tissues ready if you cry easily.
