Those Shoujo Cliches

Those Shoujo Cliches

Shoujo

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

Shoujo
She’s late for school, runs around the corner and manages to run straight into some cool and handsome guy.

Shoujo

He coincidentally goes to the same school.

Shoujo

He may be a gorgeous transfer student, the Mr. Popular guy who is good at everything and has the looks to go with it.

Shoujo

He may be the silent boy being saved after harassment from weirdos.

 

Favorite Cliche in Shoujo

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?

Shoujo

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.

Shoujo

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

Shoujo

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.

Shoujo

The clumsy Heroine who is stupid and clumsy, but somehow manages to get all the guys. So annoying.

Shoujo

Reverse Harems in which the heroine rarely ends up with any of the male characters.

Shoujo

Running away from a confession.

 

I seem to have a love/hate relationship with cliche’s, but don’t we all?
