《 English Corner 》 : *^* Shoujo Manga Classics (pt. 2) *^*

Hi , kawaii visitor of our blog ~ 



How is life ? Did your school start yet ? 

Well, this post is the second part for the Shoujo Manga Classics. I hope you liked the first part ^v^ //

On this post, I will be giving you a list of second-lead types that appear in the jealousy arc of shoujo mangas ~

Now, I'm not saying that this is that and that is this. These are my opinions based on my personal observation and preference.


Hope you enjoy reading and don't forget to share your thoughts in the comments section ^^ //



2} THE JEALOUSY ARC  ;

( This will be the last arc I will be covering this post *^* .)

So sometimes, there are these super annoying characters THAT DONT UNDERSTAND THE MEANING OF DOKI DOKIS. Y U NO UNDERSTAAAAND. 

In order to make these stupids understand that they actually LOVE one another, they need to taste this BLACK COFFEE BITTER JEALOUSY . DATS THEIR PUNISHMENT. MAUAHUAHUAHAUHAA... *cough* *cough* ...

The jealousy arc is a must have in shoujo mangas. It can even be what a one shot is all about. This arc usually occurs after meeting arc. 

The most most important part of this arc is ; THE MAGICAL UNICORN RIDING SECOND LEAD'S FABULOUS ARRIVAL. 

Usually, if the second-girl doesn't play a significant role, we see the second-girls' arrival first. There are couple types of second-girls ; 

  • The shy but tsundere type : UGH. JUST UGH. The most annoying one. Because she is shy and introverted, the male lead pities her and stays by her side. WHICH MAKES ALL THE READERS AND THE LEAD GURL CRAY CRAY. Then 'to our surprise', she turns out to be a over-protective tsundere ... 
    • (Example; Ao Haru Ride - Narumi and Kou's situation which caused a LOT of frustration ...
  • The out-going childhood friend : AGAIN. UGH. But not as bad as the first one. So basically what happens is that this girl just shows up one day, clinging to the male lead, stealing lead girl's spot. She tells the main gurl : IVE LIKED HIM EVER SINCE I WAS A FETUS. YOU DUNOO MEH. DONT GET AHEAD OF YO SELF GURLL. OH YOU SO DOOONEEE . etc. The main gurl goes like: OMG *CRYING WHALE NOISES* I DONT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT HIM. THEY LOOK GOOD TOGETHER *SWITCHES TO DOLPHINS* HE WILL NEVER LIKE ME UWAAAA etc. (at this point there is a high drop rate of a second male lead ...)Bunch of things happen, but at the end both of the leads are like I LIKE HIM/HER. And we're like YOU DON'T SAAY.
    • ( Example; Tsubasa no Hotaru 's second lead girl ...)
  • The friend : This is just cliche . Friends liking the same guy. The main girl giving up first but after not being able to take all the DOKI DOKI, confesses to her friend. Now, there are two types in this ; BUT YOU PROMIED ME type and LET'S BOTH LIKE HIM *HUGS UNICORNS RAINBOW TEAR MOMENTOS* type . 
    • The first one helps main lead relationship to develop faster. 
    • The second one is just a fluffy friendship.( Example; Ao Haru Ride - the cute girl and Futaba's fluffy friendship rivalry ) 
  • The Fangirl Club : This is just funny. It will take two sentences ; GIRL GETTING BULLIED BY THE FANGIRLS. GUY SAVING HER (plus maybe a confession). DOKI DOKI. (its three but oh well ...)
  • //I'm kind of too sleepy to think of more. Please forgive me ...
That was the girls. Now, the actual event is the second-lead guy. There are two types ; THE MAKING THEM REALIZE THAT THEY LOVE EACH OTHER SO IM DONE BYE type and I SHALL MAKE HER MINE AND BREAK THE HEARTS OF READERS TO THOUSANDS OF PIECES type. 

I dont really like the first type, cuz it just happens so fast and it makes me feel pity for the second lead ... EITHER WAY I CRY FOR THE SECOND LEAD. UGH.

So lets get to the general type of second male leads ;

  • The childhood friend: 
    • A)The jealous ones. Thinking I'VE ALWAYS BEEN WITH HER. HOW DARE HE TAKES MY PLACE. 
    • B) Protected ones. Thinking SHE ALWAYS PROTECTED ME. BEAT PEOPLE UP FOR ME. IF SHE PITIES ME AND STAYS BY MY SIDE ... MUAHAUAHUAHUAA . 
    • C) The cheerful and stupid ones. Thinking IM GLAD SHE IS WITH ME. OH WAIT. I JUST REALIZED I'VE LIKED HER ALL THESE TIMES. OMG OMG OMG BLUSH DOKI DOKI. BUT WHO IS THAT MEN WITH HER ?! WHAT ABOUT ME ? . 
      YAS YOU WERE.
  • The perverted : So, there is this perverted guy that starts to think that she is actually cute BUT OH WAIT, SHE DOESNT LIKE ME ?! I SHALL TAKE HER EVERYTHING ... and there goes the pervert. In time, he starts to like her with sincere feelings but guess what mangaka says : IT S TOO LATE. MAUHAUHAUHAAA ...
  • The trouble maker-lonely : This type is usually the closest to main-lead type. He bears sincere feelings so the reader wants at least a hug between him and the main gurl. Learning the loneliness behind his heart just makes you want to switch the main male leads. This is my favorite type.
    Im actually a huge tsundere inside ... lol 
  • The bullied-quiet : So, there is this not-so-promising type. Usually because of his shy personality, the main girl always thinks of him as a friend, and he gets rejected after hastily confessing. It's sad ... But I don't like seeing the quite types going into the cool zone cuz then the male lead just gets shadowed.
    A classic end for a quiet 2nd lead ...
  • The cheerful and cool one : This guy just pops out of nowhere, conforts the girl when the male lead is mean to him, cheers her up but understands his own feelings when he sees the girl and the main guy together. Usually, tells the main lead to back off at some point ...
    • Sorry,again, I can't think of anything else :( Please tell me your ideas in comments~
    So, there you have it ! The doki doki jealousy arc second-lead types ~
