Sample text

G7 DEEP UNDER THE RUFFLES . . Ultimately, at the center of this swirling universe of objects, at the still point of the turning vortex, is the black hole that is the shōjo: she is the point of gravity where all shōjo culture is merged into meanings through extreme pressure. She is the sign where the deconstruction of signification ceases, yet paradoxically, she is also the origin of the feverish proliferation and manic repetition of objects. She is at once a singular image of the little girl and a complex of concepts, conditions, and commodities.

These two possibilities oscillate in a very satisfying way for the subject: “she” can secure her identity as a desirable female and yet keep the abject content of the mature feminine sexuality at bay. The morphology of representation thus segues into a morphology of power. The Loli is but one of the images of the feminine produced during the long history of patriarchy. At once affirming and denying her historicity as a Victorian ideal, she has become a key subject in the transnational and transcultural shōjo phenomenon.

Takemoto’s otomegaku brings out the subversive, even antisocial or criminal aspects of girlhood that Yoshiya’s work exemplifies only obliquely. Specifically, I want to trace Takemoto’s debt to the literary counterculture of 1960s Japan, especially the fascination with French literature, existentialist thought, and experimental narrative forms that authors like Mishima Yukio, Shibusawa Tatsuhiko, and Kurahashi Yumiko displayed during that time. Indeed, Kurahashi Yumiko’s works in particular frequently focus on the subversive aspects of girlhood,⁵ and in 1965 she published her most explicitly phrased treatment of the subject, Seishōjo (Saint girl), a novel she called her “final [or ‘ultimate’] girls’ novel” (saigo no shōjo shōsetsu).
