Abstract
This chapter introduces the world and characters of Yūkan Club, a popular girls' comic. Tsurumi focuses on the messages this manga sends its young Japanese readers about what makes a person male or female, strong or weak, liked or disliked. The result is a rare analysis that goes beyond common stereotypes and does justice to the complexity and subtlety of male-female issues and identities in Japan.
