New and improved

We've been talking recently about coming up with an updated version of our Wordcandy Guide to the Best Shojo Manga. We think our original list is still pretty solid (although Pheromomania Syndrome, sadly, hasn't been seen or heard from in ages, and I take back the rec for Parfait Tic—I know it still has a lot of fans, but I just can't take that stupid heroine anymore), but it doesn't include any of the great stuff that's come out recently. What about my current favorite series, Uwasa no Midori-Kun—a delightfully frothy, funny, R-rated series about a girl who's seduced and abandoned by her soccer-star childhood friend, and swears to get her revenge by disguising herself as a boy and trouncing him on the field? (Seriously, dear readers: learn to use IRC. It's worth it for Uwasa alone.) And there's tons of other awesome titles, none of which we've had time to properly celebrate on the site: Skip Beat, Cynical Orange, Angel Diary, Gakuen Alice, Gokusen, Nodame Cantabile...

No love for Ouran High School Host Club?

No, Ouran too! Although I hear that Haruhi ends up crushing on Tamaki, and I would kind of prefer the ending to be more unresolved--I liked all of the characters so much that I didn't want the story to shift to just one couple.
