Drama anime heavily emphasize their characters' emotional development. Whether by experiencing the protagonist’s emotional turmoil, viewing heated character interactions, or exploring a passionate romance, any anime that humanizes its characters through emphasizing their flaws qualifies as a Drama.


Seinen (青年), translated as "youth", is a demographic aimed at men from late teens to adulthood who understand kanji. Seinen manga rarely include furigana with kanji, and have a wide variety of topics and themes. Seinen is the counterpart of Josei, a demographic aimed at women.


Shoujo (少女), translated as "young woman", is a demographic aimed at teenage girls. The most iconic and influential Shoujo character designs come from the early 20th century, where girls and boys alike were drawn with huge eyes.
