I just read Happy Mania... The main girl is portrayed as a fickle, shallow, whiney bitch who just wants to get married to every guy she meets because she's "becoming an old woman" (she's 26). In the end she ends up marrying a man she hates, just so she's not alone. Good manga, but annoying. Are women really like this? Is this how we should behave if we want to attract men? They aren't good role models.

Haha, I don't exactly understand but I get ur point...there are some girls in between the weak and strong categories...is that what u're saying?


Yup something like that, I'll just emphasize this then...

SHOUJO-CLICHE' = weakness, helplessness are always accentuated, easily manipulated, open for abuses, willingness to be used, gives in to anything, martyrs
GIRLS IN BETWEEN= vulnerability is often their highlight, minimum resistance but this resistance crumbles when loved one is threatened, sense of justice are often overshadowed by fear, always in denial
STRONG= valiant-side is their front, tears don't easily fall, retorts to threats, fights back, manages to work her way out of trouble, clueless when it comes to love (often common)



Ok^^

Shoujo and Soho are a form of facisim and all it does it create friction between genders thats what they want read a soho and youll plainly see that the heroin is much more independand and alot more self motivated whilst the men seem like complete idodic retards with no more iq than a grain of sand absolute boyfriend for example the only guy in that manga for the whole first part 3 or 4 books is a SEX DOLL! while all the other men are dumb or looked down upon like dogs or pets so believe it or not it balances out and if theyd just get rid of their sexist steriotypes everyone would be much more happy

i think that in shoujo, sometimes the storyline is TOO PERFECT, i mean its too much fantasy like where the guy posses all these qualities and the main girl just falls for them. they get into a fight and they are back again etc. TOO PERFECT !!

What do i think about girls in most shoujo manga? Absolutely honest to God pathetic, seriously they are usually so unreliable and totally reliant on a boy it hurts, come on at least TRY to mimic real girls in some way, give them a god damn spine or something.

Sure, they can appear hotter than normal girls, and whle I dislike them being as reliant as they are, I like the fact that they are some degree reliant on the man, that's what i look for in a girl...I want her to be reliant so i can feel more of a man. Yet anime takes it to the extreme and makes it appear that without this guy they would suddenly dissolve into nothingness...So over exagerated.

On the off occasion where you find an anime girl that can stand on her own two feet you start to think "Bloody hell she's perfect, why doesn't she exist in reality?". xD

heh what cracks me up is that its written for girls, and a lot of girls just lap it up...

There was even this one where this girl gets tied up and raped, and then she falls for the guy (note i stumbled across this on accident, i dont go looking for shoujo rape mangas). I was just like wow....

i think that a lot of japanese girls tend to strive to be cutesy and innocent, so they have manga that are more geared towards them. i agree that it can get annoying after awhile. i'd like to see more manga with girls that have flaws, besides them being "not popular"(but somehow all the guys in the story fall in love with her :|) or that they eat too much yet they stay amazingly skinny, i know that it happens to some people out there, but not everyone, you know what i mean.

i hate it when the girl falls head over heels for the guy and then they do stupid things, like the girl in hana kimi. i mean, wow, flying all the way to japan and dressing in drag to go to an all boys high school, just to meet her favorite high jumper and convince him to continue jumping...and the guy falls for her!! it's not that i hate hana kimi, it's just when you think about it, it's a pretty absurd thing to do. but hey, that's just my two cents. i prefer the manga that at least has the guy falling for the main girl first, especially when they hated each other in the beginning and whatever...

Hmm, thanks for mentioning that. I kinda think that its OTT as well, I dont think I can do that. But you gotta admit that the girl got balls ya know? But, wait a sec... "flying all the way to japan and dressing in drag to go to an all boys high school" = with the cutest and hottest guys...?! Oh well...a girl's gotta do, what a girls gotta do! lol

I'd like to see more heroines who are, quite frankly, the opposite of what girls want to be.

I never liked reading shouju. Because it's usually not what a normal girl behaves like. I don't understand why would they fall for someone who has either been sexually abusing or harassing them.(plain sick?) Love-stories are nice, but it's being abused. =/

well, i agree with you guys. girls are usually weak and always get tease by boys. also as you can see, most of the girls are always go out with perverted bf. i wonder why and their bf seem like their protector since they so weak. i want girl to be strong.
