The term '''shōjo''', '''shojo''', or '''shoujo manga''' (少女漫画, ''shōjo manga'') refers to [[manga]] marketed to a female audience roughly between the ages of 10-18. The name romanizes the Japanese 少女 (shōjo), literally: "little female". Shōjo manga covers many subjects in a variety of narrative and graphic styles, from historical drama, to [[Yaoi|boys' love]], to science fiction — often with a strong focus on human and romantic relationships and emotions. Strictly speaking, shōjo manga does not comprise a style or a genre per se, but rather indicates a target demographic. Examples include [[Cardcaptor Sakura]], [[Ouran High School Host Club]], [[Fruits Basket]], [[Fushigi Yuugi]], [[Sailor Moon]], [[Vampire Knight]], [[Romeo x Juliet]], [[Princess Ai]], [[Pretty Cure]], [[Skip Beat]], and [[Tokyo Mew Mew]].
