Like shojo manga, shonen manga is marketed to a male audience roughly between the ages of 10 and 18 though many of the titles are also loved by female readers too. The stories can be varied and often involve high action, humorous plots, male protagonists, fewer characters (ie Dragon Ball) and female characters with exaggerated features. Shonen art tends to be less flowery than shojo and due to its higher action count violence in some form is more common. Many books may be classified as shonen though certain elements of both shojo and shonen may be present in them. Lots of people who enjoy stories of action, adventure and camaraderie can enjoy many shonen titles.
