I have read lots of Shoujo Manga's and noticed that girls are portrayed as weak, vulnerable and somehow lacks even common sense (Stupid!). I really hate it, they treat girls like objects, like a doll a guy can use and abuse whichever way they want and the girls still end up falling for them vice versa. But Im getting so tired of this kind of plot.

Im hoping that it would change, although there are a few shoujo's with strong heroines you can only count them within your hands fingers. Im just saying that in some scenes they could've either fought back, call for help, find an ally or reject guys but no, they just lay there like a dying fish out of water. We can do more than that right girls?

I dont want to offend any readers who enjoy reading this kind of plot. Dont get me wrong, I still read Shoujo's till now...with a little sour face and disappointment. So, my fellow ladies what do you think? Im sure the guys enjoy parts where they overpower helpless girls...its their nature. lol JK Girl power!

There needs to be more mutual relationship shoujo manga.
Like where the guys has problems and the girl helps, and the girl has problems and the guy helps with lots of ラブラブ~ (lovey-dovey stuff)

I don't like this one-sided stuff, where a girl falls head over heels for guys because they are hot but the guy could care less about them (but warms up to them later or something, I guess).

But yeah, girls in shoujo manga need to stop being defenseless and help out their BFs or something.
I would like more manga like that.

well japanese girls are for the most part (not all, just a lot) are pushovers just like your hated heroines. There was a class of japanese kids that come to my school on an exchange and all the girls were as quite and meek as you could possibly get... youd ask them a question and theyd just stare at the ground and mumble their answer. Though im proud to say that 1 of the girls by the end of the their trip had become outgoing

The only one that caught my attention was *Dear School Gang Leader*. Reminded me of Gokusen for some reason.

yea almost every girl is a dumb mary sue. its getting quite boring. it pisses me off that all the cool awesome guys fall in love with the stupid, perfect, pretty, selfless, nieve girls. and then they wonder why they were raped. duh! no one is really like that! thats why i've turned to shounens where the plot barely pays any attention to romance and the girls have an education higher than 1st grade. thats all i have to say. kthanx

I agree with you all...The girls in shoujo mangas are just so weak, there are some situations where they can defend themselves, yet no...they stay as lame as ever. The guys are always cool and stuff, and the girls always have complex about themselves. As a girl, I feel ashamed xD.
Posted 4/20/08
Totally agree. There's that typical plot where a weak girl comes and a strong guy swoops in to save her, then the end.

Really? They are? Ive never met one before so, I have no idea how they are. There goes our shoujo heroines

I see that a lot of you have agreed with me on this matter. I appreciate it! TNX :blush:

I also dislike "smuts" where the usual "please, no, stop" comes in bold letters but they end up doing it in the end is so cliche. Kick him on the balls and say it to his pained ass face that "NO, MEANS NO!"

lol so true abt the weak helpless act exactly just kick him in the balls (YAY!! girl power ) but does anyone know that ouran high school host club comes under shoujo but its quite hilarious to see Tamaki is the drama queen while Haruhi is the sarcastic straight forward heroine its lyk a parody of shoujo

Please check out my other thread for shoujo manga heroines that are strong willed and smart thank you!

Yup ouran's in my list. although its a "shoujo" it has a very strong heroine very funny too.

usually they are kinda weak

That is why Shojo isn't my fav. Cause of the girls. I read Ouran though.
