I am not the biggest fan of shoujo manga, but I enjoyed reading Ouran High School Host Club, which I found to be absolutely hilarious. It is much more on the comedy side, and it basically parodies and satorizes all of the shoujo stereotypes that you could possibly think of. Still, the manga manages to retain the "warm and fuzzy" feeling of a good shoujo manga. Yes, there is romance- both you typical shoujo romance and :cough: some very funny parodies of shonen-ai. Despite the comedy aspect of the series, Ouran still manages to retain many of the life lessons found in shoujo manga, such as first love and discovering who you truly are as a person. Definitely worth the read in my opinion. More Info on the Series

If I can recommend you a really good shojo, I will say Special A all the way ! That serie is so funny !! This is a story where a girl named Hikari has always had as rival a boy named Kei who was always look full of himself. When she was young, she was beating by him in pro-westling (not sure about the spelling) and because it was her first humiliation, she took him as her biggest rival. Since that, she went to his rich school in hope to beat him one day. Now, she's in the top seven students who have the better grades. They call them special a or S.A. for shorter. Hikari is so funny because she always put herself in weird situation to try to beat Kei but same of that, she always goes second. The characters are great because they've all kind of personnality. I'm absolutely sure that you will love the serie.
