Is a girls manga better than a boys one?

Personally, I don't mind a bit of blood and guts.
Shounen for me! But then again, some of the shojo manga are hillarious!

I prefer shonen but I read alot of shoujo as well. I probably have a ratio of 75% shonen and 25% shoujo but thats pretty good considering I watch so much anime to the point I think my brain might explode. laugh.gif

Seinen and Josei.
Those are manga target towards to wide demographic of 18-30+ men and women respectively and range from Yotsuba to Berserk.
Seinen = win.

I personally like shoujo alot more than shounen.

I dunno, I guess the mushy stories in alot of shoujo appeal to me more. That, and shounen has a severe tendency to drag on forever. Plus battles don't usually entice me.

But I agree with Popo. Seinen is nifty.

I'm open to both.
But I don't really like shoujo that is too mushy or ridiculus which alot of it is.
And I don't really like Shounen that drags on and on. *coughsNarutocoughs*

But yeah like Popo said, Seinen is win. <3

Shonen because most of the mangas I read are shonen.
The only shoujo I read is Fruits Basket. ^^

Shounen mangas are the best. Shoujos are ok, but they cannot leave a deep impression

It depends on the quality of the manga; some shounens are better than some shoujos, and vice versa. But I prefer shounen in general because I like action. smile.gif Also, a lot of shoujos are way too melodramatic for my taste (though I do love Fruits Basket, so...).

Shojo, in my opinion, is too mushy and girly for my taste (all the guys look like girls for crying out loud!), so, I'm a shounen fan all the way!! I just LOVE violence and blood in my mangas!! XD

Shonen and Seinen are my favs. Violence, action, collectible items galore.

I may be female, but I find most Shojo manga too fluffy.

First and foremost, I read just about anything I can get my hands on. So I really don't care one way or the other. But I seem to own more shoujo/josei, so maybe my collection is reflecting a subconscious preference. I do know that I often prefer my boys to be pretty...

Umm, I read more shoujo but I tend to enjoy reading shounen manga more than shoujo manga.
