  • Matt Thorn's homepage is a valuable source of reference on magazines, US translated editions,definitions of 'shoujo' and academic studies.

  • Fan Translations on the Internet. A very handy site which includes several Shoujo titles.

  • Commercially Available Shoujo Anime: Vince 'Keke' Ho's Shoujo Anime list at Hiroyuki Hironaga's page You have to hunt for the Anime List; try clicking on the manga girl...I could make a more direct link but this would be discourteous.

  • Steve Pearl's Net-Manga Guide. This is a hefty list of hundreds of titles, indexed by mangaka (that's manga creator to the un-initiated.) This is a big file of 250k or so, and is available in more than one form from various places. I suggest you retrieve this valuable file for your personal use, and use your favourite wordprocessor's Find facility to search it offline.

    The file (in 3 parts) can also be found as a frequently updated FAQ on the following newsgroups:
    rec.arts.manga,, rec.answers, news.answers

  • The Shoujo Mailing List Archive is indexed from Jan 1995 and is a useful place to dig. The list itself may be 'joined' by sending a e-mail message to Vincent B.Ho (or the current list manager). It will be of interest principally to those who read manga in Japanese. Translations & reviews are sometimes posted.

  • More Shoujo material may be explored at Hitoshi Doi's pages or via the index on David Gaxiola'a Anime Web Page.
