Wiscon on Shoujo

June 7, 2008

Oyceter recaps the Wiscon panel on Shoujo bodies and interpretation.

Though I rarely dip into shoujo, I think the recap covers a lot of good stuff in regards to manga, comics, and gender. Funny enough, while US comics have bemoaned their inability to capture a large portion of female readers (Though sure enough, they’re there, despite the misogyny, despite the cleave/thigh/midriff requirement to have superpowers, despite women in refrigerators), Japan has been seriously doing it. The fact you have entire teams of women who are working in the industry probably helps as well…
