Read the rules of this section before posting!

Here you can suggest shoujo titles.
Please do not post any overly cliched, big eyed shoujo. Those suggestions are unlikely to be picked up.
But you are welcome to try <_<

Please don't discuss anything here. Only suggest.

How to suggest a title:

-Title of the manga:
-Author's name:
-Alternative titles:
-Genre:
-Number of volumes:
-Description:
-Sample pics: (if you have any)

If MangaUpdates has it in the database, I'd prefer a link there as well.

If you are interested to help scanlating this title in any way, please note so.
Thanks.

Heh.... the only shoujo I'd suggest are those good, old-school ones from 70s or even 80s. I find the newer titles to be pretty cliched, with the exception of a few titles like Lovely Complex, Arisa, etc.

But the older titles are so hard to get and it's difficult to find something good if you can't read a copy of it first. So, nothing for now. :P

I wonder if you could scanlate perfect World (Nakamura Asumiko), because it seems to be a very beautiful story. And most of all, I just love Nakamura-sensei so i want to read her works biggrin If you'd need, I'll try to edit it as well (just give me the scan and the trans :P)

Here is the link @ MangaUpdates: http://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=35879

Well, it has scanlations (although poor) somewhere on the net.
And it's licensed.

-Title of the manga: Boyfriend (SOURYO Fuyumi)
-Alternative titles:
-Genre: Shoujo
-Number of volumes: 10
-Description: Takatou Masaki is the second youngest of four sons, and seemingly a delinquent by nature. His hot temper has put a wedge between himself and his strict father, gotten him kicked out of one school, and tossed him at a school notoriously horrible for the one thing he's truly good at, basketball. A chance encounter with the willful Yuuki Kanako may serve as a catalyst for change, as the indefinable connection she feels with him draws them together...
-Sample pics: Contact Storm in Heaven
Mangaka: Souryo Fuyumi
Link: http://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=6584
Reasons:
Same author as Mars and Eternal Sabbath
Old enough that it isn't going to get licensed.
Storm in Heaven did the first volume. They have since decided not to continue with the project.

@Mierten
Actually, I've had Boyfriend in mind for a while.
I'm a big fan of Souryo Fuyumi myself, and would love to work on it.
We're currently understaffed for such a project. Maybe if we had another translator, and better raws than the ones online.
I'm open for joints, too.

It's definitely a possibility, but without help, it'd take a while.

I am very into the old-schools back from the 70's and 80's, hence below my recommendations ^^;

Besides Boyfriend by SOURYO Fuyumi, which I was about to propose here also... only to find out (in delight) that it has already been mentioned. : )

===
-Title of the manga: Highteen Boogie
-Alternative titles: ハイティーンブギ
-Genre: Shoujo
-Number of volumes: 26
-Description:
From the Animeraider: Momoko is one of the brightest students at school, but the school is a bit overrun by delinquents from a motorcycle gang. In fact, the person who has the next desk has never come to class. Then one day she gets the upper hand on one of these bikers and they actually strike up a bit of a friendship, with the potential for more. Of course, it turns out that he’s the leader of the bike gang, and the student in the next seat who has been missing this entire year…

If the above has not managed to lured you yet... well, here's more:

Sho, the leader of Bōsōzoku, Skeleton, fell in love with Momoko after their first encounter. Momoko was an orphan who lived with her aunt and the two cousins.

Despite Sho's all efforts in winning her affections, Momoko kept on ignoring him, disliking anything associated with Bōsōzoku. Until one day, Momoko agreed to go out with Sho but on few conditions, incl. leaving Skeleton.

Skeleton members were not pleased with their leader being "stolen away" by some ordinary school girl. Miki, who also fancied Sho, ordered a gang rape on Momoko. It was already too late by the time Sho had heard of the plan. In a warehouse, he found Momoko lying unconscious and naked in front of the Skeleton gang. Momoko regained conscious, believing it was Sho who raped her...

Sho did not want to hurt Momoko and decided to hide the truth from her.

Couple other twists happened in between (e.g. Momoko's cousin tried to rape her, she was driven away from home by her aunt and cousins, and etc)... but basically, both Sho and Momoko left school and started living together.

Sho was actually from a rich family. His dad eventually cut off Sho's financial-tie; Sho and Momoko ended up living in a very tiny apartment, working hard and in long hours.. being financially poor but were happy and lovely and sweet together.

.. Until one day, Momoko found out she was pregnant..
Sho was in rage and despair after learning of her pregnancy. Begging her for an abortion, she refused... He then hit her on the face, shouted at her "GET RID OF IT!" and ran away.... Sho knew it was the child of Shige, once a good-friend from Skeleton whom had raped her that unforgettable night. He could never tell Momoko the truth.. and yet, he had already hurt her deeply by what he just did...

I am going to stop typing here, or I will end up writing a long review of the manga instead ^^

I just want to say, this is a great 80's shoujo manga but without the usual cliche shoujo storyline, if you know what I mean smile
It has also been rated as one of the best shoujo (under the seishun category), chosen by the editors in Japan. (*based on 編集会議, April 2003)
It was so popular that it was even adapted into a movie in 1982 - Sho was casted by Machi (Masahiko Kondo, the then-heart-thorb-in-Asia!)

More details on the story (in Japanese): http://wikiwiki.jp/comic-s....6%A5%AE
Cast for High Teen Boogie (1982 film): http://cinema.theiapolis.com/movie-18J5/high-teen-boogie/cast.html

Sample pics: See Managaupates link below
Mangaka: Artist: Makino Kazuko. Writer: Gotou Yukio. (NB. Makino is married to Gotou Yukio who was also the writer of many of her work)
Link: http://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=20652

Reasons:
1. It's too good to be missed.
2. someone has asked for it even: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20100624211107AAYdUie
So, yeah, there's a demand for it ^^
3. Raws available.
