BIG NEWS: I'm writing a book!

Have you always wanted to own a piece of your favorite anime? With cel collecting, you can, and my book will tell you how to get started. Cels are transparent sheets that animators paint or draw on to create a scene for a show or film. Not sure what I mean? Here are a few examplesCreamy Mami, Minky Momo, Sailor MoonRose of Versailles - these anime were all made with cels. Though not widely used today, cels are still an important part of animation history.

We're still very early into the process, but because you guys are so awesome, I couldn't hold back the news any longer.

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.
