So get this, I've been reading a lot of romance + ecchi + harem shounen. I noticed a few rules that the content seems to abide by strongly. Wonder if you guys agree with this? (Please note this is just for fun)

SHOUNEN ROMANCE LAWS

1. If the male lead trips or is pushed and falls for more than two frames, there is a 100% chance of landing on a girl's privates

2. The girl with the flatest chest will never be taken seriously (so cruel in my opinion)

3. When a dispute between the lead couple arises, there will always be a supporting character who explains a misunderstanding which had wrongfully enraged the girl. This resolution leads to her loving the male lead more... Ofcourse the law is, the friend never gets any credit for their righteousness!

4. A panty shot IS plot development

5. Main character has three main faces a, b and c.

a) THE "f*** my life" FACE
(T_T)
This involves not being able to see the eyes of the male lead as his hair is covering it. If the eyes can be seen an emo expression will be sure to glaze them over. Sometimes if the main character is not too much of a pussy he will be punching something, like a locker or a wall... Sadly the worst kinds of things you want to strike in blind rage.

b) THE "Stop thinking dirty things about me" FACE
(-_-)
This usually involves a disapproving tone with a shaded forehead and droopy eyes. It is usually aimed at a perverse friend who is commonly fantasising the same thing as the audience. NOTE: this expression can sometimes be angry at a minor character for thinking up "stupid, perverted and unreal thoughts" (according to the main character)... Ironically these 'stupid thoughts' or ecchi predictions usually turn out to be true in one form or another.

c) THE "wow, that's hot (or) too cute" FACE
(*_*)
This always includes blushing... That's about it... Oh and the main character usually stares helplessly as the girl is making all the effort to spill her heart out to him in the most passive and indirect way that you think to yourself... She looks like she's in pain... Very rarely the manga rewards you for reading it with a follow up hug or a kiss (These are the moments we 'girly' men watch/read for)... But usually the main character is just too pussy

END

P.S Please note, I do actually love this genre of manga/ anime very much, I'm just having some fun I would love to see people posting and coming up with some more MANGA/ANIME RULES and if you're a girl, maybe you've seen some funny trends shoujo romance follows. Please share and comment positively.

which anime/manga were my references?
Ichigo 100%, I''s, Good ending, Love hina, Suzuka, Kimi no iru machi, Unbalance x Unbalance, B gata H kei

I would add that with both shounen and shoujo, romantic confessions of aishiteru (the literal word of saying "I love you" but is rare done even in real life because it is such a strong admission and is confessing on a soul mate level) are extremely rare.

I'd have to say this is a pretty good start.

and it fits the 4 above I wouldn't say imoutos is a type, imoutos is a species in which they are either [insert one of the 4 above here]

Nah, some are really moeblob and kawaii and don't really show tsundere, yandere, or goudere characteristics, and far as I'm concerned they aren't very average by IRL standards, either.
