There's nothing good on that list.
The legal age of consent in Japan is 13, so shota is totally legal in Japan. In some western countries shota might be considered child porn.

19 volumes of Switch Girl!! and still no anime adaptation. Sure, the story goes downhill quite fast, but at first it's quite fun and fresh, and even though it'll tank like most shojo adaptations, I just need this so much.

Better shoujo series need to rank to get commented on. This week is unremarkable. Usually we just get big series or Hakusensha titles.

they ARE good shoujos. at least...in japan, they sell ok. but those titles aren't in the US cuz not many like it in the US.

but yea, in the past few years other than older 2003-2004 series, and sometimes not even that, supernatural shoujo romance manga don't sell that well at all...dunno why though. Take Arisa for instance.

Selling well does not equal good.

I didn't mean it that way. I meant as in, they sell in japan so they must be popular in japan. but so many of my fave series mean nothing in japan.

<is still fuming that barajou no kiss doesn't have an anime>

As sweet as SSN :)
There is like 2 weeks delay in my recent reading list
I randomly bought discount/second hand manga with cute/mysterious cover.

Use Personal Blacklist extension in Chrome if you just want to Google for a series synopsis, without google slapping MAL score in it.

There seems to be quite a lot of shoujo on the top part of the list. I am a Hero seems like a good one. Pokemon manga never even crossed my mind, something like that exists?
