"Shounen" and "Shojo" are often listed on the list of genres in websites...

edit: Just felt like answering the question, Shounen is better then Shojo in my opinion. Shojo is too much emotional things, just plain talking, the closest to action they get it when 2 guys beat each other up for a girl. Shounen animes on the other hand, still have emotion, and the emotions aren't strictly romance, and with tons of action and yet still talking.

Shōjo or shoujo (少女, Shōjo or shoujo?) is a term used in English to refer to manga and anime aimed at a female audience between the ages of 10 and 18. The term is a transliteration of the Japanese 少女, literally Young girl. The genre is stereotyped as melodramatic stories of romance usually with a female protagonist, and drawn in a flowing style where beautiful characters with huge, intricately drawn eyes become spontaneously surrounded by flowers, stars, and/or bubbles. Shōjo works cover a huge range of subjects, from historical drama to science fiction and by no means do all adhere to the same artistic sensibilities or conventions. In the end, it is not a style or a genre but a demographic.

Shōnen (少年, Shōnen? sometimes transliterated as shounen or shonen, "boy", or literally "few years") is a Japanese word used in English to refer to manga intended for boys. Examples include Dragon Ball, Digimon, Naruto, Whistle!, One Piece, Yu-Gi-Oh!, Bleach, InuYasha, Gintama, Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, Death Note, Shaman King, and Fullmetal Alchemist.

Shōnen anime and manga is typically characterized by high-action, often humorous plots featuring male protagonists. The camaraderie between boys or men on sports teams, fighting squads and the like is often emphasized. Attractive female characters with exaggerated features are also common (see fan service), but are not a requirement; Dragon Ball Z, for example, has only a few such characters. The art style of shōnen is generally less flowery than that of shōjo, although this varies greatly from artist to artist, and some artists draw both shōnen and shōjo.

Beyond shōnen manga, manga for men (university age and up) is called seinen manga. Despite a number of significant differences, many Western fans do not make a distinction between shōnen manga and seinen manga. This is due to the fact that very few seinen manga have been published outside of Japan. In Japan, many older men read shōnen magazines because of their ease in reading during commutes to and from work on trains. Consequently, in Japan, shōnen manga magazines are the most popular manga magazines.
