Those Shoujo Cliches
Shoujo is based on human emotions and teenagers. It is aimed at girls between the ages of 10 to 19. IF you are on the Anime Amino app, I have gone over Shoujo in a more detailed blog. This blog is based on the genre of romance, comedy Shoujo’s, in particular Shoujo mangas.
How the Heroine Meets Her Crush/Love in Shoujo’s
He coincidentally goes to the same school.
He may be a gorgeous transfer student, the Mr. Popular guy who is good at everything and has the looks to go with it.
He may be the silent boy being saved after harassment from weirdos.
Favorite Cliche in Shoujo
Childhood friends, weird but I find it so cute! When two characters are childhood friends and then end up together! What is not cute about that?
Male characters who do not realize a female character is in love until halfway through the series. They may be oblivious to the situation, but you know they will end up together.
A few of my other favorites; Master-Servant relationships, traveling with a cool evil guy, genderbenders, ugly duckling syndrome, and time interwinds and the heroine ends up in the past.
Hated Shoujo Cliche’s
Characters get touchy feely and yet the mangaka draws them so that they look like a 10!! Not going to mention any names, but I do not like it.
The clumsy Heroine who is stupid and clumsy, but somehow manages to get all the guys. So annoying.
Reverse Harems in which the heroine rarely ends up with any of the male characters.
Running away from a confession.
I seem to have a love/hate relationship with cliche’s, but don’t we all?
