    Default Two things...

    I don't know if this is the right place to put this, but since the first part is a kind of request, i guess this'll do. Forgive me if this has been raised before.

    I was downloading the Mahoromatic Manga from stoptazmo.
    File 1, check.
    File 2, check.
    File 3, check.
    File 4, che-waitaminute. This is file 5?
    The reason I'm raising this is because I'm looking for no. 4. I was just posting this in case the stoptazmo site runners didn't realise.

    My second problem.
    I have heard manga being referred to as shoujo, shounen, doujinshi, etc.
    I know what doujinshi is. I draw fanmanga myself. but what are the other kinds?
    Thanks in advance.

    taken from http://www.mangaupdates.com/genres.html

    Shounen
    A work intended and primarily written for males. These works usually involve fighting and/or violence.

    Shoujo
    A work intended and primarily written for females. Usually involves a lot of romance and strong character development.

    imho, shounen manga have to have more action involved, and tend to span long series, with loads of volumes

    and shoujo manga features really beautiful and detailed artwok with a good number of eh, bishounens. they also tend to be shorter, eg. around 10 volumes or so, whereas shounen manga can go up to like 30+ volumes
