If you're an adult reader and are looking for mature manga to read, then you should know that Viz's premiere shoujo imprint Shojo Beat offers a nice selection. Out of the 140+ series Shojo Beat has licensed, I have outlined 16 titles and 7 honorable mentions from the imprint below for your reading pleasure.



The List

Here is a full list in ABC order only from within Shojo Beat's coffers:


Honorable Mentions:


Hopefully, I didn't miss anything! It should be noted that I went by only what's listed on the site so all of these are active licenses. Also, the stars (⭐) indicate that the series is available to read via the new Viz Manga subscription service. Note that any "M" mature-rated manga can only be read outside the app on a web browser! Finally, note that Revolutionary Girl Utena is available via print only.
