Decided to do a new thing to bring back some of my favourite Shoujo manga… Top 4’s! Once a month I would like to do a new Top 4 with a new theme. Until I run out of themes I guess! Have a theme in mind? Leave a comment below!
It’s easy to love vampires, but the market has become so saturated since Twilight was released it’s hard to pin down which ones are really great. I have assembled a list of my favourite vampire shoujo manga, which some are actually my top favourites ever. Disagree with my list? Have changes? Put them in the comments!
