Manga blurs the line between demographic and genre. Words like shonen , shojo and seinen hold a lot of weight in a series' marketing, and they're generally a fair indicator of content. However, for every manga that is described accurately, there is another severely simplified by its label. There are plenty of series that blend the tropes and tendencies of multiple demographics -- hybrid manga that mix and match, not really fitting into the common categories.

Shojo and adult women: a linguistic analysis of gender identity in manga (Japanese comics).
The magazine is aimed at girls ages , and it's primary rivals are Ribon and Ciao. Roughly the size of a phone book, it generally comes with furoku , or small gifts, such as popout figures, games, small bags, posters, stickers, and so on. The furoku is an attempt to encourage girls to buy their own copies of the magazine rather than just share with a friend.
