This just came into my head about similar scenarions happening in this kind of shoujo... lol you can also post some of your ideas if you like.

"Shoujo Girl & Shoujo Boy"
Behind all the flowering words, this is really what they're trying to say! lol



Please support my mini-series of "Shoujo Girl & Shoujo Boy" more to come...
(P.S.) I was planning on making a new thread about this but I thought that it would have a very similar idea on this thread and it might just be closed down so I just post them here...

LOL I like that, that's good. ^_^ You should make that into a fanfiction or a webcomic or something.

Anyways, yeah, I totally agree. I've already seen enough of this crap in the movies... when I see it in manga, it just plain pisses me off. Often I find they are "rescued" from situations they could easily get themselves out of... like in the beginning of Sailor Moon, Usagi would get herself into all kinds of stupid shit she could easily rescue herself from, and I'd be like, "Usagi, fight goddamn it, you have the power!" It just really grinds my gears when the girl doesn't even try to fight for her own damn self. I mean, there are still other enjoyable factors of some series, but I have a huge problem with the heroines.

Now, I like the girls who have either a strong body, a strong mind, or (preferably) both. I could even tolerate a girl with a kindergarten level of education if she can defend herself (sorta like Ellie May from The Beverly Hillbillies, if anyone's heard of it).

Even though I read Shoujo mainly,
I am pretty tired of the heroines being so weak
and always taking like..VOLUMES just to figure
something out.
How can they be so...dense >.>

Oh.
Along with that.
I can NOT stand how they run into,
meet, fall on, whatever cliche you make--
into some random "hot" guy and they're automatically in love.

They throw the word "love" around too easy.
I'd prefer if the girl had a sense of dignity instead of
being an lovestruck lamb who can't hold her own.

I don't read Shoujo manga because I ALWAYS hate the main girl characters.

Well in shoujos that involve magic and super powers they're ok i guess....but others are just wtf?! worthy. OHHC is ok because haruhi helps out the host members and other guys right? But we need more like that or others with that kind of thing...well thats how shoujo started out but we need more with girls kicking ass caush HELLO WE CAN KICK ASS lolz

and i agree Shoujo guys are just too cute to let go off ~ >3

Some characters are weak but in Crimson Hero, Beauty Pop and Fruits Basket the female characters are really strong and persevere through really tough situations or don't get swayed by all the pretty boys. Though in some shojo manga the girls can be pretty weak and be pretty boy-crazy

I totally agree with you! That's why I don't really like shojo but I have found a few shojo manga’s that have strong female main characters that aren't weak, like in Ouran High School Host Club, Special A, and Kaichou wa Maid-sama. I really like these ones even if they are shojo

Dunno, I guess Shoujo manga should just follow the flow it should have. If not there may be a decrease in purchasers =.=

Is it a stereotype in japanese society for females to be submissive?
I.e tohru in Fruits baskets
Isn't there a phrase for it like yamato nadeshiko???
Shall have to look it up on wiki. lol
