These are the best anime for women and girls!
Still not satisfied? See the list of anime Shujo and the list of anime Josei, perhaps thus the lack of anime for women and girls can be competed. And remember, Shoujo and josei are genres, but also a division of public, being shoujo for young girls and josei for older women.
