For those of you who don’t get the punchline, never fear! Sam is here to clear things up for you!

Shojou/ shojo (I’ve seen it spelled both ways, so I’m putting both here just in case) anime is a genre of Japanese Animation which is translated to “Girl Anime”, which is basically your Sailor Moon, Cardcaptor Sakura, and other girly types of anime.

Shonen anime is “Boy Anime”, which is basically your Inu-yasha, Dragonball Z and other manly types of anime.
