''Bishoujo'' is Japanese for "pretty girl". In normal Japanese conversation, the word can apply to any girl from toddlerhood to late teens. In the {{anime}} and {{manga}} fandoms, however, the word is AnimeFanspeak for attractive girls and young women, particularly those intended to appeal to a male audience. Although [[ShonenDemographic Shonen]] and {{Seinen}} have included a variety of pretty ladies for the viewers to ogle since their beginnings, the popularity of {{Moe}} and WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForLittleGirls shows since the late 1990s has translated into increasingly [[ShoujoDemographic Shoujo]]-influenced character and costume designs for ''bishoujo'' characters.
