Top 4 Shoujo: Possessive Lover

Top 4: Shoujo with Possessive Lover

When it comes to Josei/Shoujo Manga my all time favourite sub-genre is the Possessive Lover. Since it’s my top searched Sub-Genre I know you guys love it too! It’s February and I was thinking of giving you guys something steamy to celebrate Valentines day!

Like I said this sub genre is just my favourite and many of my all time favourites fall in this sub genre. My main criteria is that heart pounding romantic connection while avoiding some of the more abusive series out there. (EX: Hot Gimmick)

Note: These aren’t in a specific order, I love them all equally


Koi to Dangan (18+)

You guys don’t even know how obsessed I am with this series. I first found it while on vacation in Japan and based on images alone I was hooked. I bought 3 volumes and can’t read Japanese!

This possessive guy is in the Yakuza and a lot of the possessive lovers sway into the Bad Boy area. What I love about this male lead is he is as tender and caring as he is possessive which makes him irresistible!

Defying Kurosaki-kun

Another steamy trope within the possessive lover genre is the Tsundere. This series takes Tsundere to the max with this slow romance.

Despite how slow the series is there are tons of steamy moments along the way and even a love triangle! Kurosaki-kun is not afraid to take on the head strong heroine and that’s what makes the series so fun.

Royal Seventeen (18+)

Who doesn’t love a little work place romance when it’s between an heiress and her bodyguard? Royal Seventeen is absolutely ridiculous and is great as smut and a comedy.

It’s hard not to fall for Allen as he pushes around the ditzy heiress. Allen comes from a life on the streets that an heiress just couldn’t understand. This series is short and sweet and a real wild ride!

Abe-kun’s Got Me Now

Abe-kun is another series in high school but unlike Kurosaki-kun, he isn’t shy to say how he feels. While tsunderes are definitely fun in their own way, the way this male lead proudly declares his affections is unique and powerful.

If you lean more into the sports sub genre you’ll love Abe-kuns Got Me Know. The male lead is a martial artist that the heroine literally refers to as a gorilla. He is often seen throwing the strong willed heroine over his shoulder.
