    Exclamation Shounen Forums Rules, Guide, and Index

    Welcome to Mangahelpers Shounen Forums

    Shounen manga are any comics serialized in a magazine marketed to teenage, male audience. The audience for shounen manga in Japan generally range from 12-18, though many appeal to older audiences. Shounen does not describe genre or content, it simply refers to the magazine that serializes a series. Shounen can range from manga aimed at young teens, such as Yu-Gi Oh, cynical comedy such as Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, to not safe for work horror manga like Franken Fran.

    General Rules:
    • Discussion in this forum is focused on single series. For more general discussion head to the Shounen Hangout or Otaku Cafe.
    • When creating a thread, please follow this format for the title: Series Title by Mangaka.
    • There are no requirements, but please try to add as much information about a series as possible.
    • Only one thread per series.
    • The shounen forums are for discussion only. Do not ask for raws, translations, or scanlations.
    • This forum is for shounen manga only. When in doubt, use Mangaupdates to look a series up.
    Prefixes:
    Prefixes are based on publishing status in Japan
    • Ongoing: Currently published in Japan
    • Complete: Publication has ended in Japan
    • Hiatus: A temporary halt in publication.
    • Canceled: Publication has been terminated prematurely.
    • One Shot: Short stories. Typically one chapter, always less than a volume.
    • Info: Mod use only. For rules, guides, and the hangout thread.
    Spoiler Rules:

    24 Hour Spoiler Rule:
    • Mangahelpers enforces a temporary blockade for discussion of new spoilers/chapters. This blockade ends 24 hours after the chapter is released in English
    • For series with no forum, [spoiler] tags must be used while the 24 hour rule is enforced.
    • Please wait 24 hours before using art from new chapters in signatures and avatars.
    • Please wait 24 hours before posting any art based on new chapters in the art and stories section.
    • The 24 hour rule will be strictly enforced. This is a courtesy rule. Not every member reads spoilers and not everyone can read new chapters as soon as they are released.

    Formatting:

    We ask that the same format used to post spoilers in the sub-forums is also used for single threads. We also ask that [spoiler] tags are used in single threads. Please follow these examples:

    Spoiler: Manga Title, Chapter Number show

    Spoiler: Manga Title, Chapter Number show
