    Hey...

    Any boys here watching shoujo?
    I'm watching Chibi Vampire Karin.. and I've just realised it's Shoujo..
    Anyone thinks that's wrong? I think it's not.. as long as one can enjoy himself, right?

    I read Shoujo. I currently Love So Life, Kaichou wa Maid Sama, Vampire Knight, Gakuen Alice, and Nana. I've finished Cardcaptor Sakura, Legal Drug, Wish, and Clover. I've really just started reading Shoujo though. Yeah I know Legal Drug will soon have new releases.

    I love Shounen manga, in fact I read it more than any other genre. Same with anime, but I also read Shoujo, Seinen, Josei, and Kodomo. I don't care if people laugh at me. I like what I like.

    Closest thing to shoujo I've ever watched is mild shounen-ai in the form of No. 6 and Black Butler.
    Maybe Eden of the East was a bit shoujo.

    Even those, I never tell anyone I watch.

    What kind of young girl were you when you watched Eden of the East?
    Search the damn definition for Shoujo...like me, you clearly have no idea what it meant.

    I do, although it's mostly anime rather than manga.

    Chihayafuru has an ongonig anime right now. Ouran High School Host Club, Kimi ni Todoke, and Honey & Clover were also great shoujo anime. I watched Vampire Knight but didn't really like it that much. My favorite Shoujo anime would probably be Natsume Yuujinchou.

    hrm didn't realize that /:

    Although Shoujo and Josei practically fall in the same place, just that the targeted age differs.

    Why does manga (and to some extent anime) have so many stupid words to classify them?

    I know, right?

    And don't even get me started on Western media. What the fuck is a "spaghetti western", to start? "Bromance"? And then tossing together random words like "action comedy" or "action thriller"... and then you get into the really weird words like "romance" and "horror". :P

    Good point there s4mid4re, though there are some Josei manga that are vastly different from your typical Shoujo manga. It goes by the magazine they're published in like for example LaLa is for Shoujo, Weekly Shounen Jump - Shounen, Kiss - Josei, etc.....

    Nothing wrong with this at all. I watch all types of anime.... I loved fushigi yuugi and card captor sakura but at the same time also love things like Eva, deathnote and code geass. I just watch what I like and don't worry about the rest of the world.

    I have a friend who doesn't watch some popular anime because they're shoujo.. He even stoped watching one, when he found out it was classified as shoujo...

    I myself watch whatever is fun to watch, no matter if people think it's for girls or not...

    I haven't found any shojo I liked. The vast vast majority of stuff I like is seinen. Though the two have some points of similarities, there's just something about all the shojo series that turns me off...
