Shojo

DNAngel, huh? Such good memories…

As Shonen is for boys, Shojo -literally meaning little girl- is a type of manga targeted this time towards girls ranging from ages eleven to sixteen. While Shonen concentrates on big values like Friendship, Shojo is characterized by the following elements:

  • Large eyes: The universal way of expressing our emotions. As some say, the eyes are the windows to the soul;
  • In most Shojo, the decor and art is very simple compared to shonen;
  • Relationships between the characters is more important than anything else in Shojo;

As you can see above, Shojo is much more easier to understand than other types of manga, probably because it covers many different subjects and has a much more realistic side to it.
