whats the difference between shougo, ouran, ecchi, yuri, smuts ????


Shoujo is a manga for young girls, usually love stories, or manga which concentrates on a female heroine, magical girl stories, etc (Card Captor Sakura, Fruits Basket, Vampire Knight...). Josei is a kind of shoujo for an older audience, with more mature characters and serious themes (Nana and the likes). Ecchi is not porn yet (that is hentai), but there are some pretty explicit scenes and sex-related content (works from Mayu Shinjo, yoshihara yuki...). Smut means pretty much the same thing (meaning: semi-explicit content ahead). Yuri (or shoujo-ai, but the latest term was made up in the USA) is used to talk about stories with lesbian themes, from a deep friendship between girls (and sometimes nothing more) to explicit female/female relationships (Maria-sama ga miteru, strawberry panic...). It's like reverse yaoi. Ouran is just an abreviation for the manga Ouran High School Host Club.

If you need more precision, all of the above and more can be found on wikipedia.


oh thank you!!!!!!!!!!

I know
That's why I don’t' really read shojo that much. The only ones I do read are ones where the heroine is strong , or just different from the typical weak heroines of shojo. Like Ouran High, Special A, and Perfect Girl Evolution. I love how in Ouran, even though Haruhi is weak physically, she has a great charter and is always helping the boys out and in Special A, how Hikari is really smart and strong, but still needs Kei to save her sometimes. In Perfect Girl Evolution, Sunako is really original and can kick butt, she’s really cool cos she doesn’t care about her looks and likes the things she likes, being all dark and stuff. It’s heroines like these I wish I could see more of in shojo.


I could say the same. Now, I just want realistic characters like many people do.

I agree that most mangas have a week girl as the heroine and a guy somes and saves her and stuff, but Hikari from Special A is pretty strong.

In some shojo manga, there are many girl characters have many personalities, commonly friends/classmates of the girl protagonist of the story..
There are some shy type...
A Bookworm..
A fighter/strong type...
A snob one...
Perky character...Or a happy-go-lucky... (Like Clannad)

Well, these one is all I can remember...

You guys must read alot of shoujo because the only manga I had a problem with the main girl was Hot Gimmick.
She annoyed to no end and wasn't admirable in my opinion.

Might appear weird but I think the guy and the girl in the shoujos deserve each other.
The girl is a stupid weakling (for most part) and the guy is a rich manipulative, over-controlling, generally handsome brat.

Yes, the guy could get intelligent, good girls, but that would waste the romantic life of those girls so why not encourage him to go for the vulnerable, "cute", idiotic girl? She would ruin a good guy's life anyway xP...

I used to be like all of you who didn't like shoujo manga characters until i learned a thing or two about japanese culture. the reason your mad is because your no thinking like JAPANESE people. there are alot of social rules that manga just expects you to know. and that is why japan is confused as to why we like it.

also if your yelling at the manga because this and this did or didnt happen, isnt that just good writing? you didnt STOP reading.

and shoujo manga girls are what japanese girls want to be. and japanese girls should be a little naive and very good at girly things. its not shoujo's girls you should be mad at its shounen girls. because THEY only exist to be pretty or captured...or pretty while being captured. so if your complaining about shoujo girls, your probably not native japanese and there for dont understand why they are acting that way.

after learning japanese culture i understand shoujo manga much better and find myself WAY less frustrated with the girls.

hmmm...good point you got there.

"and shoujo manga girls are what japanese girls want to be." ???
-why would they want to be like that? in this day and age there is no such things as a knight in shining armor, you all have to look out for urselves ne? (well maybe im just too independent and headstrong thats why i'd hate showing my weaker side)

oh well, might as well find out for myself, I really wanna go to Japan. I wonder why nobody in my family takes me seriously lol hope I wont get deported for kicking someone's ass in a train, heard there're a lot of old pervs out there ne

Most of them are dumb, unlucky losers who have pretty faces.

They tend to be too simple yet all the gorgeous(gay-ish) guys love them.... Weird thing....

They have the BIGGEST eyes in the universe!!!!!

They try to be the innocent virgin ones but when in a sexy situation they are sex goddesses OR when they are with the hot(gay-ish) guy they are horny inside...


i hate shoujo too
