|2.0 JOSEI addition/fix
So, I've decided to post this here to see if I can catch the attention of any admin, who is willing to help us, readers. (Whether it's holy or someone else..... Anyone will do.) This is a simple fix that would act as a mighty thank you.
I've sent in a correction form about this matter a few days ago. I'm waiting patiently here. I even made a posting about this over at the Bokura no Kiseki forum.
Edit: The "Aria" portion here has been removed as it clearly is shoujo.
Monthly Comic Zero-Sum and Zero-Sum Ward are both josei. Various online sources prove this. In Japanese bookstores, this proves true also. The exception is the manga magazine section. They usually bunch all boys' mangazines to one side and the girls to the other. No real separation between genres for both sides, so, you'll have the josei mingling with the shoujo in these cases.
Quoting the source links from the Bokura no Kiseki forum:
Quote from tgirl
Here's another link. The Japanese Wikipedia page for Zero-Sum Ward. When you scroll down, you'll see the Category link section with the fourth link saying "josei manga publication" or 女性漫画雑誌. "Josei manga-gisshi." The Japanese are the source behind this, so they will know better.
If I have the time, I will post more links and even blog links of Japanese bloggers calling Zero-Sum manga "josei".
The English Wikipedia site for Monthly Zero-Sum got the genre right. No Ward page set up, so that's a double understandable.
EDIT: More links now that I have some time.
I also truncated the Wikipedia link into a short URL.
1) Booklive.jp, that's directly connected to the Japanese version of Yahoo!Auctions: http://bit.ly/1wDNdTc
---- This is a link I sent via the "change request" form. The genre is listed as "josei".
2) Bookstore.yahoo.co..jp lists the book's category as "josei": http://bookstore.yahoo.co.jp/shoshi-183548/
3) Nico Nico Douga's video promotion of "Bokura no Kiseki" - http://seiga.nicovideo.jp/watch/bk66584
It clearly states:
Author: Kumeta Natsuo
Genre: Josei Comic
Series [name]: Bokura no Kiseki
Label: ZERO-SUM Comics
4) Hon Yomiuri's site listing of "Bokura no Kiseki" - http://bit.ly/1yTtIbe
See this slightly above the manga's image and information?
ジャンル： SF・ファンタジー 女性コミック
Genre: SF (Science Fiction) - Fantasy Josei Comic
5) Japanese blog example, taken from my favorite "Bokura no Kiseki" spoiler source: http://www.talesyotsuba.com/article/180912758.html
Part of her post reads....
という流れのス トーリーだった けど、
全体的にＬＯＶ Ｅな心理描写が 多い一話でした 。
To call this as the story's flow, however --- as one would expect, it became a feeling in the likeness of the josei mangaka's
, who talked about numerous psychological descriptions of LOVE as a whole.
To any followers of Zero-Sum's manga, I tried my best. I think I almost exhausted all areas of where we can be heard without having to PM any admin. The remaining place would be the shoujo/josei section, but that would be an act of desperation. >,<; 分かりません。 。。 がんばっ て。。て？
