About shōjo manga
Shōjo, shojo, or shoujo manga (少女漫画 shōjo manga) is manga demographic aimed at a female audience, particularly those between the ages of ten to eighteen. Shōjo manga covers many genres, including magical girl, science fiction, historical drama, etc. However, shōjo manga almost always focuses on romance, and human relations.
Shōjo manga is typically serialized in magazines, such as Ribon or Ciao, before being published tankōbon format. These magazines are commonly published in roughly phone-book size, and come often with furoku. They can be circulated at various times, such as bi-weekly, quarterly, and monthly. Several magazines outside of Japan feature shōjo manga, like Viz Media's Shojo Beat or Tokyopop's Smile.
Shōjo magazines first appeared around 1903 with publications such as Shōjo Kai, Shōjo Sekai, and Shōjo no Tomo. The manga began to disappear with World War II approaching. Many popular postwar manga include, Shosuke Kurokane's Anmitsu Hime, and Osamu Tezuka's Princess Knight.
