Shoujo, with fighting action (though, dolls... may put people off) but it's shoujo first and foremost. Lots of girl power. RAWR.

Well, it was originally published in Monthly Shōnen Ace, if that tells you anything.

It's a boys magazine. Well, aimed at the teenage boy market. A lot of CLAMP works are published in shounen magazines though, despite being shoujo in content (IMO).

It kind of blurs the line, mixing both shouo and shonen together quite well. Yes, the main story is definately shoujo in nature, but it still focuses on a fighting tournament, and considering how the dolls look, most boys wouldn't be put off just by that.

I love how you made this thread June. I'm not surprised :P.

But yeah, i'd say Angelic layer is fighting/action show. shoujo and shounen aren't really genres.

This series was hyped as Clamp's first shounen series when it came out, so I tend to think of it it as another shounen tournament show.

It's a fairly basic shounen, but with a female lead.
