Refurs STRICTLY to young boys. Female shota is colled Lolli.

Shota, or more commonly in Japan; Syouta, is LEAGAL in Japan because the age of concent is 13 there. Rather than attracting gay men, this appeals to young Japanese girls & one of my friends.
Because of how popular it is & how well it sells & since 2D drawings are harmless, shota will not become illigal in Japan any time soon.

Shota is a Japanese term used in mostly Yaoi in which a male character LOOKS like a child under or at the age of 13.

This specifies to LOOKS , not necessarily age , therefore it's only illegal if the boy is actually younger the 13.
