please note

This site is meant to showcase the retro shoujo manga that I have in my collection. I own physical copies of these books, so if you are looking for a torrent or scanlation for them, I can't help you in that department. Sorry! Please buy your own copies - it's much more fun!


This site is for entertainment purposes only. I did not create any of these manga.

what is shoujo?

From the Wikipedia page: Shōjo, shojo, or shoujo manga (少女漫画 shōjo manga?) is manga marketed to a female audience roughly between the ages of 10 and 18. The name romanizes the Japanese 少女 (shōjo), literally "little 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.
