Shoujo Manga opinions?

I've enjoyed a handful of shoujo manga/anime in the past: Kare Kano, Gakuen Alice, Skip Beat, Perfect Girl Evolution and Nodame Cantabille.

Was looking to try out something new and these were the mangas recced over here that I'll be checking ou at some point:

Also looking up: Koukou Debut, Emma, Mint na Bokura, Crimson Hero and Basara

Koukou Debut, Mint na Bokura and Crimson Hero I've read before but am not sure why I stopped.

If y'all have read/checked out any of these manga before, would love to hear your opinions whether they be postive or negative :)
The art is in a pretty old style, since it was started in the 70s XD so you might want to try the 2005 version of the anime first. I've been at Aja for years to watch it because, really. Theatre, rivalry, femslash. How can you not.

I also adore Lovely Complex, Mint na Bokura, and WJuliet. But no one should live their life without having read Basara. It should be a law. :|
