List of the best josei anime/manga series of all time, actively changed by your votes. Since there is often confusion about its definition, lets just say that josei is manga and anime targeted towards woman who are in their adult years (if you're looking for shoujo titles for younger girls we have a list of that too). Some of titles featured here are smut josei, while others are more romantic or slice of life. Either way the josei demographic is basically women 18 and older, but these shows are enjoyable no matter who you are. Vote on this josei anime list for what you believe to be the top shows, and downvote titles you've watched or read that didn't appeal to you as much.We've noted below if any of the series are manga only with no anime adaptation. These include Tramps Like Us, Red River, and a few others. This list of josei anime/manga is a great starting point, but please help us build up the list by adding your favorite titles!
