Why do chicks in Shojo Manga have no tits?
(202 posts, 44962 views) Posted: 1842d 0h, 2m ago by Lucky9 in Shoujo/Josei
I agree with chineserider.
Girls in shoujo manga are generally portrayed as pretty because they are thin and petite. If they also had large breasts it would almost be a negative message to girls that not only should they strive to be thin, but that they also need to have ...

(531 posts, 137323 views) Posted: 1881d 13h, 29m ago by Lucky9 in Shoujo/Josei
I agree with dreycy about the need for more shoujo roadkill. Too many heroines should be walking into cars and avoid using the sidewalk altogether.

However, my most hated shoujo cliche has to be the standard love rival formula.
Step 1. Female lead is sought af ...

Your IQ

It could also be due to biased tests that are offered online. Which tend to focus more on visual acuity rather than IQ.
If that's the case we would expect to see higher results on a manga forum, since reading manga should improve visual acuity.
The results do ...
