Then what is it? Honest question. I have no fucking idea about genres or whatever, never payed attention to those. I just read whatever seems interesting.
Would it be more proper to call it a target, since it denotes the audience? And why is it not a genre, since it also denotes, somehow, the content? (shoujo will have female protagonists, with love interests, etcetera.). Of course there are exceptions, but the exception makes the rule, right?

There he is. There he goes again. Look, everyone! He posted it once again! Isn't he just the funniest guy around?! Oh my God.

I can almost see your pathetic overweight frame glowing in the dark, lit by your computer screen which is the only source of light in your room, giggling like a like girl as you once again type your little Taeko-Bane thread up and fill in the captcha. Or maybe you don't even fill in the captcha. Maybe you're such a disgusting NEET that you actually paid for a 4chan pass, so you just choose the picture. Oh, and we all know the picture. The "epic" Taeko is Bane picture, isn't it? I imagine you little shit laughing so hard as you click it that you drop your Doritos on the floor, but it's ok, your mother will clean it up in the morning. Oh, that's right. Did I fail to mention? You live with your mother. You are a fat fucking fuckup, she's probably so sick of you already. So sick of having to do everything for you all goddamn day, every day, for a grown man who spends all his time on 4chan posting about a capeshit movie. Just imagine this. She had you, and then she thought you were gonna be a scientist or an astronaut or something grand, and then you became a NEET. A pathetic Taeko Banefag NEET. She probably cries herself to sleep everyday thinking about how bad it is and how she wishes she could just disappear. She can't even try to talk with you because all you say is "FOR YOU FOR YOU FOR YOU." You've become a parody of your own self. And that's all you are. A sad little man laughing in the dark by himself as he prepares to indulge in the same old dance that he's done a million times now. And that's all you'll ever be.

Forever...

Although "demographics" is the generally preferred definition, it's actually a lot more narrow than that.

shounen/shoujo manga isn't strictly "demographics that reads them", it's actually defined as "runs in a magazine whose TARGET demograhics is ****"

So a shounen manga could be more popular to girl, and vice versa, but it doesn't change the categorization. (although such cases are very rare) The shounen/shoujo category is market definition for the sake of magazine classification.

tl;dr,
If it runs in a shounen magazine, it's a shounen manga.
If it runs in a shoujo magazine, it's a shoujo manga.

What about anime? Does it still denote back to the source material? What of original works? The medium they are transmitted in isn't as divisible as a magazine. I mean shoujo material and shonen material might be broad, but a majority of them follow a certain pattern, contain similar themes, tropes, structures, etc. Are shoujo/shonen simply a specific form of manga? Like how Within poetry, you have sonnets, and pastorals, etc etc. I understand that shoujo comes from a demographic, but the term has an obvious connotation.
>>
>>124095461
Same thing
>>
>>124095523
What about anime? Does it still denote back to the source material? What of original works?
Generally refers to the source content, yes.
If original, there's no categorization unless specified.

>Are shoujo/shonen simply a specific form of manga?
No. shoujo/shounen simply means "ran in a boys magazine or girls magazine".
Context of the material have no influence on categorization.
There is no connotation beyond "shoujo manga is likely to be written in **** style to appeal to its general readership, but that is a trend and not a definition".

Imagine if he'd not call her back and that beam smashed her in pieces. Oh man, that would be sooo edgy!

>>124094805
Sure, the proper meaning of "shounen" and "shoujo" is just the demographic that a magazine is targeted to. But they both have kind of a double meaning, at least in English.

Sure, ecchi harem comedies are purely the realm of shounen mags. But if I read that series X is someone's "favorite shounen", I don't expect a harem comedy - I expect a fantasy/sci-fi/maaaybe sports setting where people fight, get stronger, have fancy techniques, and stuff.

Likewise, "shoujo" is just a demographic. But since I haven't read that many, the typical shoujo in my mind is about a girl entering high school and being romanced by a very pretty boy with lots of sparkles and bubbles.

>lifting 50 pounds is impressive

>>
>>124096054
No, absolutely NOT.
It's not a good idea to leave it in the hands of fucking /a/ posters to go calling shit whatever the fuck that particular anon feels like calling.

This is what causes confusion when people are talking about various topic. Like when someone brings up shoujo manga sales, and some dumbass goes "duhhh why isn't Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso on there that's shoujo manga right".

No, leave it up to the Japanese publisher to define a JAPANESE word use for their own Japanese category. It's had zero positive effect in /a/ and had nothing but negatives.
>>
>>124096054
The world doesn't revolve around you anon.
Just because you don't think something is shoujo doesn't mean it isn't, and you're not a special snowflake that gets to redefine shit.
>>
>>124094805
Wrong some magazine put shojo tag in their shounen magazine release, etc. Think why.
>>
So real talk for a moment.

Even if the beam wasn't so heavy that he couldn't hold it, it was still heavy enough that he struggled with it. Considering it was falling, I have a hard time believing he just caught the damn thing. It had to have had some force behind it considering the potential energy it would have had to have had. Looking at the stance he caught it in, his arms should have a bit of give at least which would have the thing whacking him in the head. And how the hell did he get that scratch on his cheek?

Ep was cute as fuck, though, 10/10.
>>
>>124096552
What the fuck are you talking about.

If it's a shounen magazine, they are filed under shounen manga.
The fact they cater to girls as well doesn't matter.

Tell me what you're talking about, and I'll give you specifics.
There is such thing as a noncategorized magazine that doesn't define itself to shounen, seinen, etc.
But those aren't "shounen magazines" in the first place.

Tell me a specific magazine you are talking about and I will tell you what the deal is for each and every one of them.
I mean, fuck, I've been reading manga for over 30 years in Japanese.

I hardly can only check one. Gfantasy under square. It is shounen magazine that has shojo release.
>>
>>124097270
No it's not. G Fantasy, while a sister magazine to Shounen&Young Gan Gan, it is a nondemographic magazine.
In fact its main target audience is seinen & shoujo.

It is not a shounen magazine. Shounen and Young Gan Gan however is shounen and seinen respectively.
