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 :)
I've read YKK, and it's a seinen manga, and I really love it but it's not for everyone. It's very slow moving and has a dreamy quality about it. It's science fiction at its best, IMO, showing the end of days of the human race from the POV of an android girl. It's not depressing at all though. She's delightful in her discovery of the world around her and of herself. I highly recommend it (I think it won a bunch of awards, so I'm not the only one who likes it), but don't be expecting shoujo.

I've read W-Juliet, which is fun and very much typical shoujo. I like it but expect cliches.

Basara is great, but it's historical-type fantasy first, romance second. You have to want lots of plots and politics if you read it. The art is weird at first too, but it grew on me.

Oh, if you like Skip Beat, you may want to try another series of hers I like, Tokyo Crazy Paradise. Shoujo plus yakuza, what could be better? ;P

Other shoujo recommendations of mine: Marmalade Boy, Fruits Basket, NANA, Ouran High School Host Club, Saiunkoku Monogartari, Vampire Knight, Sensei, RG Veda, Emma, Mars, From Far Away
