I prefer shounen over shojo. I like violence and fighting in manga, but if that's the only thing that the story is filled with, then I don't think that I'd want to read it. Sometimes I'll buy a shojo manga, though I feel that shojo is a bit too 'unrealistic', I guess? Like, that's kind of stupid to say, considering it's a manga, so it's not supposed to be realistic, but I feel that the romance stories in shojo could never really happen in real life. I guess I'm just trying to say that some shojo are too mushy for me. >.<

I'm seriously the only one who voted shoujo...
Well, I'm glad I did >w<;

Personally, I like them both a lot. I started out on shonen, then worked my way to shoujo as I got older and my manga spectrum increased.

I prefer shounen. I like the different stories, characters and issues revolving for each stories. It has more impact than Shoujo, IMO.

I read both (and seinen too), and there are some really good series in both categories but overall I still prefer shounen biggrin.gif The action and plot are just more interesting, and shoujo makes me want to puke sometimes when it gets all romantic with hearts and flowers everywhere...bleh.

Shounen ftw...but i like some shoujo manga as well for example shugo chara..maybe because of ikuto...he's different on a typical shoujo manga bishies..still shoujo manga doesnt attract me..I like some action, adventure, fight scenes that shounen manga's have..and the story is epic and you will learn lots of lessons in life..that's shounen!^^

Even though I'm a girl, shounen. Whenever there's romance in shoujo I want to yell "get on with the plot!!". But in small doses it's fine, I adore any romance in shounen manga. And the fight scenes. Yush. biggrin.gif

I've never really read much Shoujo, but from what I did read, I think I like Shounen better.
I don't really know why... maybe it's the fight scenes. rolleyes.gif

Shounen is my first choice. All the shoujo's charaters seem silly to me, even the protagonist. When I read a manga what I care the most is its theme. Shounen does a terrific job delivering the moral lesson to me in a very plausible way, while the theme in shoujo is normally cheap and absurd.

I prefer Shounen over anything. I don't realy read Shojo by general, but sometimes look onto it. I don't see the interest on Shojo anyway...

I much prefer shounen, I tend to find the stories are generally a lot better and the female characters are a little more tolerable. xD

I'm not a big fan of shojos. The romances are too fluffy and in-your-face for my taste. In the few shojos that I have read, I find myself hoping that the couple DON'T end up together, that's how much they annoy me.

Shojo ! Shojo !

that's the voice coming from the girls behind me.....


I think Full Metal Alchemist is the only Shounen I like....
common Shounen mangas are action and violence and drama and adventure but
FMA is more way than just those .... it always has a touch of a Full Metal Heart ... agree.gif
