Anime or Manga meant to break your heart, filled with love triangles, betrayals, and darkness. Filled with bishounen, and required by japanese law to have at least one shounen-ai relationship in the series.
Despite being male, I read a good deal of shoujo manga because of the interesting angst-filled plotlines.

First coined by Vtuber and Illustrator Ui Mama (Shigure Ui).

Taken inspiration from how Vtuber Hoshimachi Suisei uses the word “Shounen” to describes a male animanga body archetype distinct from your usual Shota, Ui decided to make a female version of the word.

Shoujo refers to female animanga characters that look just a little too old to be a Loli. (i.e. Hu Tao from Genshin Impact)
Weeb A: Man I love this Loli character

Weeb B: Hmm she looks more like a Shoujo to me

A great and wholesome anime. It is about a man who owns a candy shop and meets lots of new people. This anime was an emotional rollercoaster. Watch it with your family.

n. pl. light of unknown origin radiating from the forms of female characters in shoujo manga, so as to designate their inherent inner (and possibly outer) beauty. A relative of the Bishounen Tailwind phenomenon, in which pretty, androgynous boys in anime are followed by a constant breeze that causes their hair and/or clothes to ripple at appropriate moments of drama.

A type of anime/manga dealing with girl x girl love. As shounen ai is about boys in love, shoujo ai is about girls in love. Not hentai
The love of Tenjou Utena and Himemiya Anthy, from the series Revolutionary Girl Utena, is an example of a shoujo ai-type relationship.
