Drawings of Works Serialized in Shojo Manga Magazines - Dedicated to the young women of the 2000's.
Romance remains as a popular genre among adolescent manga readers in every era. Many of you are probably familiar with Nakayoshi, Chao, and Ribbon, otherwise known as the big three shojo manga magazines. The three magazines, which are targeted at elementary and middle school readers, may remind you of those times when you used to spend your allowance to buy them or borrow them from your friends and feel your heart beating faster from reading the stories inside. Those nostalgic works used to fill your maiden heart with dreams and the instant you encounter them again, you'll be brought back to your days as a teenager.
This time we are featuring works that began their serializations in shojo manga magazines in the 21st century and have been adapted into anime. We hope that these works, which have painted your late 90s and early 2000s days in various colors and made them brighter, will take you on a trip back to your childhood. Enjoy!
