yeah i totally agree with wat u just said..y do they automatically make the girls like that?
its annoying coz the girl also has to be saved by the guy..and the guy somehow comes in the most dramatic moment! so predictable!

To say the truth i prefer females with some power, cuz seeing a guy rescue the weak girl does get annoying, these in my opinion brings up the 50/50 relation. I prefer some female characters able to kick on par with male characters but not completely dominate them, but maybe sometimes. On most part the aspect of a shonen manga invovles a female with either a weak persona or big-boobed female with a sexual attitude. I prefer to some female with male oriented powers such as a female with a dark dragon blade of black fire. Not some pink fire with small fireballs and sparkles....Cuz in real life the guy and girl has stepped into the others realm, so i would like to see some more animes/mangas/movies to invovle the genders to intertwine with each others powers

I used to like shojo mangas but it got lame as i read more. They're 90% idiotic and innocent that it annoys me! I feel sorry for all the male leads (which are why i read them). oh well, at least i get to look at bishies, I'm cool with that.

Ouran, is another case, for one thing, Haruhi is certainly not stupid!!
AND Tamaki is the cutest character ever!!!!!!

This trait of the girls' personalities seems to be fanservice to male anime watchers to me. Maybe this is what the males want to see lol But oh, I don't like these girls as well. They don't seem to have a personality.

(No offence to any anime character or their fans =d)

Thats really true thats why gende-bender can be pretty good....the girls are usually pretty strong! I also love it when the characters are tom boys like Your My Girlfriend Or Special A I find it funny when the girl is a tom boy cause there usually not weak...OR if the girl is really stupid bu TOUGH try to read those once in a while there really refreshing!

Ditto that. Even Shugo Chara is like that...with Ikuto and Amu.

But you know what the DEFINITION of a -cough- annoying shoujo manga is?
Parfait Tic.
Not that all Shoujo manga is bad...but this one was crazy.

We need more heroines like Shana (Shakugan no Shana) she is so kick-ass but then she falls for Yuji... but she's still cool...
I hate it when the girl is ALWAYS perfect, weak, clumsy, the loner, dense, the bullied, or just anything we girls aren't! Who said girls can't fight a couple guys?
It makes girls look bad. Have you seen shoujo mangas where the girl is really dumb and has the guy study with her? IT SHOULD BE THE OTHER WAY AROUND! Err not to be mean or anything, really.
It's always the pimp that likes the quiet and shy girl huh?

Most girls in shoujo manga's I've read are like the stereotypes devilgirl posted...but there are always the few exceptions. Like Otokomae Bead Club, the female heroine is insanely strong so...

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!



i agree that almost all the girls in shoujo are super weak and can almost never do anything by themself but its how shoujo is the girls will always end up with a smart, big, muscular,rich and or famous guy that they just met like 3 hours ago but i just came to the idea that its the opposite from other anime where the guy can never get to the girl and always gets his ass kicked by her...and when the guy goes on her and she starts saying no ,yes if its when they just met she should fight back but after ur like in chapter 20 and theyre about to do it and she says no i dont really think she really means it so i dont see how theyre just dolls that guys can use to abuse

It's not my favorite, but I'd read some. Like there are some stories that get SO overused, where the girl likes the guy or the guy likes the girl or popular guy with not so popular girl or something like that. There needs to be more variety. So normally, I just go for the different and not "school life" genre series like Amatsuki or Natsume Yuujinchou. It's those types of shoujo series I like.

I love school life genres but most of them just get plain annoying...you know the typical weak and shy girl thats in love with the popular guy. So i prefer manga like Special A or Cat Street. Where the girls aren't soo you know...wimpy like.
