Home loli


Early lolicon idols were Clarisse from Lupin III: Castle of Cagliostro (1979) and the shōjo heroine Minky Momo (1982) as female characters in shōnen series at that point were largely mothers or older-sister characters.

Although Clarisse was depicted as 16, older than most "lolicon" images today, she inspired "fairytale-esque" or "girly" fanworks.

Studies of lolicon fans state that they are attracted to an aesthetic of cuteness rather than the age of the characters, Generally, manga and anime featuring lolicon include sexual attraction to younger girls or to girls with youthful characteristics.

Individuals in each group respond sexually to visual images of children and young people in distinct and narrow age ranges.

Akagi identifies subgenres within lolicon of sadomasochism, "groping objects" (tentacles and robots in the role of the penis), "mecha fetishes" (a combination of a machine, usually a weapon, and a girl), parodies of mainstream anime and manga, and "simply indecent or perverted stuff".
