Mayu Shinjo is a popular smut-shoujo manga artist. Her works range from sweet and innocent to almost borderline-H. She loves big-chested girls with cute faces and wishes all her manga could feature them. She says that she relies deeply on her assistants, calls herself a trend whore, loves scandalous things, considers herself a foreigner otaku and a Disney maniac, likes to drink, and is in love with video/audio.

She left Shogakukan in 2007 because of alleged abuse from her editors and now works for Kadokawa and Shueisha.

She runs a doujinshi circle called "Liliental" and for her doujinshi, she uses the pseudonym, Maru Shinozaki.

On November 12th 2014, she did an interview saying that she is going to quit writing shoujo and start writing BL, stating that she is a men lover. She mentioned in her Twitter that if she is creating a manga, it will be a BL or stories about male relationship.

I really enjoy most of all her works, I can understand why some people dislike , it's all down to preferences . While some say is terrible, some truly loved it.

But it does make me realize something , everyone that said her drawing/ writing are horrible , I'd ask them to make their OWN manga , books, or anime. Most of everyone would come up with nothing .

Corda | Feb 19, 2015 9:07 PM
she is an amazing artist as i really love the she draws the characters. even she writes amazing story.......

DX5536 | Dec 25, 2014 5:14 AM
I love Haou Airen, dat plot twist thou. More of her works should be adapt into anime

Mih0 | Dec 17, 2014 5:15 AM
Don't judge a book by it's cover!.
She already do her best for doing a manga....She think about plot and characters...But she have a dirty comment from people...

VJhayashi | Nov 14, 2014 5:05 AM
People hating on her: you're justified in doing so. I was into shoujo and smut before I acquired my current preferences, and now, when I look back: damn, her art is one of the cheesiest I've seen. Sure, there is art in manga which is way worse; but what makes her works poor is that bad artwork is combined with pathetic characters. You have the same sex-crazed black-haired guy with a long face and razor-sharp chin getting the light-footed airhead slutty girl in every manga of hers. Yeah, we aren't forced to read her stories, but when we do, we cannot not criticize her.

What? Objective about artwork? How? You might as well say it upfront to not speak an opinion at all. I believe her artwork sucks and this is coming from someone who's seen worst as well.
It sucks so much that 90% of the anime/manga fanbase has to criticise every shit of an anime/manga though the drawings are/the animation is really good.
Try to be objective pls. Criticism is good, gives you insight on how to "improve". Her writing could use a lot of work too.

Since she's switching over to BL, I look forward to what she's going to make.

@Yakub: You're not forced to read her stories, you know? So keep your critics, especially in case of her drawing. Or at least be constructive/objective.

It sucks so much that 90% of the anime/manga fanbase has to criticise every shit of an anime/manga though the drawings are/the animation is really good. I mean seriously, I have seen far worse drawings.
As I am a woman, I "am allowed to" say it: I bet on whatever you want that there are a lot of women who share the fantasies that are in Shinjou's mangas - but no one would ever admit it.
Now I ask myself as always why the hell I have been writing this because I know it's useless.

@Erease: But it's not only in her case. Look at the main characters of CLAMP or at the mangas of, I don't know, e. g. Yuki Kaori. Of course they look the same or at least similar, because they have their own/special drawing style. =) But it's true, Shinjo Mayu could do some different stories. :P

PS: Tamiaya, I like her comment as well, could have been mine. *chuckle*
