    Re: Questioning Fandom: Your Definitive Shojo Anime Or Manga

    I would agree with most of the reviewers that the most definitive shojo anime is Sailor Moon. After having read the manga a little over a year ago I got a better appreciation for it & now in my second rewatch of the origninal anime series (I'm on the first season now) it still remains to me as good as ever. There's a couple of other shows that haven't been mentioned yet that are also favorites of mine: Magic Knight Rayearth & Revolutionary Girl Utena. I first discovered MKR back in 2002 & it became an instant favorite for me before I had even finished the first season (I now own Discotek's blu-ray release & am SO glad to have it back in my collection). My first exposure to Utena was with CPM's release of "The Rose Collection" back around 2000 or so & the only question I had after watching those inital 13 episodes was "Is there more?". This (And by extension The Rose of Versailles, another favorite that I'm overdue for a rewatch) is IMO probably the next most definitive shojo series after Sailor Moon & it's also one that I'm glad to have in my collection.
