Josei
Josei is a demographic category of manga, anime, and other entertainment aimed at female audiences aged 18 to 40. Like its Spear Counterpart Seinen, Josei is notable for more realistic, less idealized portrayals of romance and life than in works for young girls.

It typically uses a more realistic artistic style. Most are written by women, and feature in magazines or anthology collections directly sold for the demographic. Stories typically portray everyday life for young Japanese women — usually adults, but occasionally high school age.

Fuji TV's noitaminA anime block is notable for focusing on this demographic.

Compare Seinen, which is aimed at young men of the same age; and Shoujo, which is aimed at younger females. Shounen is aimed at younger males.
