Why do chicks in Shojo Manga have no tits?

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 ...

(523 posts, 114758 views) Posted: 1160d 7h, 51m ago by Lucky9 in Shoujo/Josei

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

You may have already read these series but if you haven't you should definitely try them.

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 ...
