Tribute to Shōjo manga

Modern manga originated in the Japanese Occupation (1945–1952) and post-Occupation years (1952–early 1960s).  In 1969 a group of female manga artists (later called the Year 24 Group, also known as Magnificent 24s) made their shōjo manga debut ("year 24" - from the Japanese name for the year 1949, the birth-year of many of these artists). Group included Hagio Moto, Riyoko Ikeda, Yumiko Oshima, Keiko Takemiya, and Ryoko Yamagishi.  Marked first major entry of female artists into manga characters, primarily to draw shōjo for a readership of girls and young women.
