hmm, is there a old date limit, to when you can post to a thread? I like Kimi Wa Petto (Tramps Like Us), Nana (i think it's josei, becuase the women are older, and deal with more adult issues than let's hope your average high schooler will), Gokusen, and the rest i've read don't fit into josei. i read the first volume of Nodame Cantabile, and it had so MUCH potential. but it didn't click. in my 20s now, so older series, with older people and situations, appeals better.
would Baby and Me count as josei? it's not a romance. but it is geared towards older women. i think. it didn't click with me either. (currently released by VIZ)
i think i agree with your opinion. to best differentiate whether a manga title is a shoujo or josei, is by referring to its original japanese publication and that would solve it. i myself hugely rely to post like these for clarification and recommendation from any of you in mangahelpers.
you see, i also got confused with this shoujo and josei stuff. back about 2-3 years ago, a local publication launched some titles aimed for older manga reader as a market test, FOR THE ROSE-Yoshimura Akemi (bara no tameni), JULIET's EGG-Yoshino Sakumi (juliet no tamago) and Oh! MY DARLING-Ueda Miwa (i can't remember its original title). have you ever come across any of these titles? they all labeled as older/mature.
from the lot, juliet no tamago was the most difficult to digest, bizarelly realistic. bara no tameni was ok, i like the way it flow and move me. as for the last, oh well, its a weepy weepy story that after reading first volume made me questioned the label mature on its cover but after second reading of all volumes, well i think the publisher got it right. i don't think teen here, where i live, would grasp what the mangaka trying to point out.
bara no tameni is available in the net, aeriescans done it.

Hmm.. I just bought a manga with my first pay!! yipee.. it's called Love Remedy, it's a collection of stories, so kinda like mini series of one-shots but it's kinda sweet
I am currently reading Midnight Secretary, which I think is Josei. I was just wondering do Josei usually have happy endings, as they focus on romance.
Midnight Secretary is very sexy and I am just loving it!!! I just soooooooo want it to have a good living happily ever after ending
Can someone please tell me how to get access to the alternative ending CD of Haou airen and what happens in it, if anyone has seen it. Thanks!!!!!!!
Thanks lorelai. I weny yobishiehaven's site and read it. So what is your understanding of the ending? Does it start off from where chapter 50 in themanga leaves off with Hakuron getting shot on the wedding day and surviving. What is your take on it?
I was wondering if anyone could tell me where i could find the raws for the manga "masca?"
I want to clearify something. The Drama Cds of Haou Airen are just audio CDs with no video/visuals? And they are in Japanese (only)?
Also does anyone know some smexxy Japanese (tv) dramas (hopefully with english subtitles) that continue the sexy story lines of josei/smut aimed at the older female audience?

Hmmm? How about Hataraki Man? It's josei, but just some serious work stuff. Not sure whether have you tried Kimi Wa Petto yet, but there's some romance and cute Matsumoto Jun there
There is actually a thread discussing Korean and J-dorama/movies. So there are some suggestions and reviews there, goal. ^^
*If* the links still work. If not, I could re-upload them to MH.
Just for the info: Masca is a manhwa, not a manga. So the raws are in Korean.
Thanks for your reply eni. I did go to that site but when i try to save the file it appears to be password protected so i was not able to. If you could help me get the raws I would be so ever thankful.
Btw have you read 100% perfect girl (available upto chapter 66 from mangatraders). I recommend it
Oh I've read 100% perfect girl, thinking it was like Haruki Murakami's, but it wasn't. I think i dropped it after 2 volumes or something. I forgot the reason why
The password is noted on the first page ^^
