How come nobody's reviewed this yet?? Lol anyways...

Shounen dolls is about a girl who can talk to dolls (the ability, of which, gave her many "she's crazy" or "A doll fanatic O.O" comments), and her 2 "guard-dolls". At first look you'd think that the whole story is about finding Yuki, her lost doll, BUUUT it's not LoL (They found him in.. *cough* 1st chapter *cough*) Anyway, the story doesn't really have muxh to it, I haven't seen any ACTUAL storyline yet.

For me this is something light and fun to read when you can't find anything else.

Even though "Lovers Doll" is a yaoi manga and "Shōnen Dolls" is a shōjo manga, there are similarities between them. Like the fact that both mangas have a doll theme and the focus is on the relationship between the master and the doll(s). The affection between master and doll(s) also makes it possible for the dolls to turn into humans in both mangas, though the dolls in "Shōnen Dolls" can only turn into humans during the night.
"Lovers Doll" is a yaoi manga but I think even people who usually don't read that genre would find LV cute and enjoyable, because it's not as hard-core as other yaoi mangas! :)
The stories are very different, but in both, the girls get very attractive familiars and get involved in all sorts of supernatural events

Both have a gorgeous art and are about dolls who have souls.
In both mangas, the protogonist have a special connection with dolls. And, they own 3 (In SE, I'm counting the rabbit guy as well) who can turn into humans to protect their master. There is also a "foe" who has one doll with him as well, to oppose the protogonist. They give off the same "treasure your dolls, or else they'll become evil" and "Dolls are things with souls" vibe. I haven't gotten far in either series, but I was shocked at how much they reminded me of each other.
Both girls have an interest in dolls, however in Buriki no kanazume the girl wants to be a successful doll maker while Shounen dolls is darker.
They both really remind me of each other... In both, the main females both have been with an immortal, un-aging person their entire lives, and they have no parents.
