Shoujo Manga

Shōjo, shojo, or shoujo manga refers to manga marketed to a female audience roughly between the ages of 10 and 18. The term is a transliteration of the Japanese, literally young girl. Shōjo manga covers many subjects in a variety of narrative and graphic styles, from historical drama to science fiction often with a strong focus on human and romantic relationships and emotions. Strictly speaking, shōjo manga is not a style or a genre per se, but rather an indicator of a target demographic.
