    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 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.


    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
