In the common shoujo manga, the girls are just plain annoying.

Everygirl in a shoujo manga are of one type listed below;

1 - too nice, too good. No self wishes. Cares about other people too much.
2 - Tsundere.
3 - A pretty bitch.
4 - Evil, but lovey dovey around the guy that they have affections for.
5 - Shy girl in the corner.
6 - Nerdy, sweet, shy.
7 - Crybaby.
8 - Emo kid.

x - x ; I`ve never seen any girl that doesn`t fit those catagories.

I like strong heroines in shojo manga or the apathetic type, mainly because their less annoying or because they can survive without guys having to come to the rescue all the time.

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!



You got that right, that's why sometimes I hate and bored to read shoujo mangas
and they cry baby too, it makes me sick! expecially jealous antagonists (why is it always because of a guy )
I prefer friendship or protagonist with unique character than that

THE ONLY GIRL FROM MANGA (TOUGH NOW BCOME ANIME ALREADY) THAT I ADORE HER STRENGTH IS AYUZAWA MISAKI FROM KAICHOU WA MAID SAMA!! SHE IS VERY RELIABLE AND STRONG WILLED.EGOIST AND A BIT TSUNDERE!!



Usui jumps from the roof of the school building (believe me he can still survive) 4 Misaki's sake so that her secret wont be exposed.
Normally,normal shoujo manga girl will cry and hugging the guy that they relieved he is safe.But her reaction...is full of egoness

This. I seriously dislike how girls are portrayed like this, like seriously? *I* am ten times stronger and more competent than any of these girls who are entrusted with "saving the world." Seriously wth.

I've been wondering about that. Do girls really like those pushy kind of douchebags that feature so prominently in shoujo manga? There are only like two kinds of male interests in the entire genre. Actually, I find you'll almost certainly have these two archetypes in any given shoujo manga.

1) The stoic elite prince type who will always be a condescending asshole, and generally be an ass towards the main girl mostly by insulting or ignoring her. For example, the main dark haired brat from Gakuen Alice. They're usually black haired actually. Black or white haired.

2) The rascally scoundrel type who will play pranks on the leading lady, tease her, generally make her life hell. Will generally be implied to be promiscuous, or "perverted", and will probably engage in interactions with our heroine that normal people would call sexual harassment.

It's always the same. One or both of the above will be total jerks to the leading lady, push her around, make fun of her, but then save her life on accident or something, then she's in love with them. Following her rescue, they may say that she's indebted to them now, or that she has found out their secret or something so they'll kill her if she disobeys them or something like that. She doesn't mind though, because they're so handsome and strong.

I think it's rooted in the tradition of those trashy romance novels that you get at the corner store. You know, that always have those suave Casanova types who whisk the fair maidens away despite their protesting, because really, deep down, they want it.

Do girls really want that? I mean, if I were a girl, I don't think I would.

EDIT:
Ah! I was so busy complaining that I wasn't able to say something positive. If you want to read a manga with a GOOD female lead, read Kimi no Todoke. Yes, she's a "weak" character, but this manga is an example of how you can have a "weak" female lead, who can actually have you know.. a non abusive relationship with the male lead. There's a respect between the two leads that actually looks like something VAGUELY resembling friendship, unlike most other shoujo stuff, where the relationship is basically antagonism.
