Girls’ Love – a “new” genre of manga in Germany
Manga about love between male characters, the so-called “Boys’ Love” genre, have enjoyed massive popularity in Germany for decades. Their counterpart, love between female characters or “Girls’ Love”, has on the other hand led more of a niche existence until a few years ago. Those times are now over, however, as readers have gotten to discover these stories for themselves.
This presentation by Girls’ Love expert and translator Dr. Verena Maser offers a brief overview of Girls’ Love in Manga: where does it come from? How has it evolved in Japan and in Germany? And what content can readers expect?
