The target audience of shoujo manga are teen girls. Yet when I find myself reading a shoujo manga the male protagonist is always a complete jerk to the girl. Or he’s super mean to her, then over time his real kind heart is revealed. When I read shoujo manga like that I always sense utter bullshit. In reality no girl would want a guy who treated her like that no matter what he looked like, and if you do then you must be really shallow. If like me you’re getting sick of the stereotype, here are some gentlemen, as well as the manga there from that will not disappoint you.
Zen- Akagami No Shirayukihime
It’s been a while since I read this manga,but I remember really liking that he was a kind prince instead of an arrogant one.
Hak- Akatsuki No Yona
Hak does tease Yona, but in the end he would never do anything that would harm her, and he will always protect her.
Magico isn’t a shoujo, it’s a shounen, but it has enough romance in it to be appealing to shoujo lovers. Shion never disrespected Emma, and worked really hard for her.
Usui– Kaichou Wa Maid Sama
Like Hak, Usui does tease Misaki, but in the end he will always be there for her. He also was never a jerk to her.
Tamaki– Ouran Highschool Host Club
He was extremely kind to not only Haruhi, but to everyone else as well. If you read the manga you can really get to see how kind he is, and how much forgiveness he has in his heart.
Tarou– Pika Ichi
He was always extremely kind to Hanako, he never treated her badly, and they have a strong friendship.
Haru– My LIttle Monster
How could you not love him with his bubbly personality. Not many shoujo male leads have a fun personality like his, and I don’t see why.
