Who says shonen is great?!
It's AWSOME!! THE FIGHTING, BATTLES, ACTION, SOMETIMES HUMOR, AND SOME A LITTLE BIT OF BLOOD AND VIOLENCE NEVA HURTS!

Things I just luv about shonen is action and humor. They are well thought out and just can be described as cool in any ways. Hey, if you are here reading this, you must be a shonen person. All of my fav manga/anime are shonen, except for some few other. (coughFBcough!)

Full Metal Alchemist -
You know why you luv it!

Bleach -
It's AWSOME!! Great characters with shinigamis and sword battles! Funny and hilarious followed by a cool anime! Couse the captains and vice-caps's different personalities, skills, AND THEIR HUMOR!! MUST BE READ!! Fighting scenes are too good with cool dramas in it.

Naruto -
Ninja stories are cool... no really, read Naruto and see what I'm talking about... OR WATCH IT ON TOONAMI!!

There are more shonen manga/anime I like, but I'll keep it limited for a while.

Shonen is like the best thing that ever happened to reading material! Who says just because I''m a girl that I can't enjoy Shonen? I LOVE IT!!

Here's a bit of what I like:

Hagaren. (DUH)
Bleach. (teh awesome with Shinigami)
Hikaru No Go (not much action like fighting but, keeps the reader interested)
Yakitate!! Japan (just hilarious)

A lot more but I'll keep it limited like MasterKris.

Those are all too main stream. Try something else, expand your horizon. Those are good titles (most of them). I just can't stand Yu-Gi-Oh. "I must save the world using cards! *gasp*" That concept was good at the beginning but then, it just got old.
I recommend something like Death Note or Yakitate!! Japan.

Yay for Death Note!! (but I don't really read it anymore~)
Black Cat is pretty coolz too. Shaman King and Hikaru no Go are good too! I espacially like the music for HnG though... the game is pretty interesting... Shaman King is the first outside manga I read in real life. I got so addicted to it when I was in elementary! tongue.gif
Don't kill me... Detective Conan... the mystery always outshines me...>_<
Practically everything in Shonen Jump~!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I like Naruto, FMA (it's a shohen?), and Rurouni Kenshin. I'll probably think of more later.

Spelled Shonen wrong...Yes, Hagaren is a Shonen. I think that's why it's in a magazine called "Shonen GanGan."

Usually, something with violence, blood, and action (and is targeted toward boys) is Shonen. A lot of girls like Shonen though. Me being one of them. I just love the action and violence...

I could not live without shounen biggrin.gif It's like a drug for me XP

I just can't feel the same about shoujo.

I love shonen manga wink.gif. It's probably my favourite.. but unlike with shoujo there are quite a few that I haven't enjoyed. Still.. most of my faves happen to be shonen.... And yeah, I'm a girl too and I like it.... just like many other girls smile.gif

Hmm.. I happen to be one, who likes the main stream manga.. or rather, the manga I like happens to be main stream... *shrugs* And uh... the Yu-gi-oh! MANGA isn't about saving the world with the cards (actually only the Doom arc in the anime is.. if I remember correctly...)

Hmm.... favourites..

Dragon Ball
Yes, this is my abosolute favourite manga series. I was quickly hooked on the story line, the characters and development. I really like the style too. It might not be the prettiest, but I liked the way the characters, scenes and backgrounds are depicted.

Prince of Tennis
I've seen more of the anime, but I love the manga pretty much for the same reason. The vast cast of individual personalities, the matches and the humour wink.gif

Yu-gi-oh!
I don't know why.. but it's just really addictive wink.gif

One Piece
The developing plot that always manages to bring something new.. and it's prob. the most hilarious manga I've read wink.gif.

Fullmetal Alchemist
Although I prefer the anime, the concept and the plot of this are too really intriguing wink.gif

Hikaru no Go
Though I haven't read much of the manga, I've enjoyed this too... mainly because of the addictive plot

Naruto
Hmm.. addictive, great characters and fight secenes wink.gif

Yakitate!! Japan
hilarious and addictive

GetBackers
I love the story, style and characters.. and this like most(or actually all) of my favourite shonen manga is also quite addictive. tongue.gif

Hikaru No Go is one of my favorite Shonen. It's not bloody and violent or anything but, it's about Go. And yet, it pulls the reader in. It lacks character development a little bit, though. And the ending could've been better in my opinion. Overall, it's a great series to read IMO.

EVERYONE HERE IS A FMA FAN!! biggrin.gif

The thing I don't really like about shojo is that it's just too.... girly.... I hate romance... but I do read it for the sake of humor and comedy!

Although shonen is great, there are some shonen that are just too much of shojo. Like Tsubasa, it saids it's shonen, but it feels more like shojo... not the type guys would like...

I like shonen full of action! cool.gif

I use to like Dragon Ball, but FMA has completely overpowerd my interest...

It's interesting.. I love romance, am a total dreamer and have the urge to pair characters who are "so right for each other"... I also prefer a a "girlier and prettier" style and love cutesy stuff, that probably wouldn't be found in shonen manga...
Still.. I guess the characters, action, humour, plot, themes etc. are what make shonen maybe in general more interesting... And still... there's no problem with imagining certain romantic relationships.. Most series do delve quite a bit into relationship of the characters...
Also.. since there often aren't any established or canon pairings in shone(though there are some..) it gives a larger possibility to one's own imagination (heh.. and since most characters are boys... *evil grin*).
Actually even though I usually really adore the romance in shoujo, in shonen it often doesn't really fit... The "compulsory love interest" hasn't got much other purpose and can be really annoying...

Hmm.. I actually consider Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle shoujo. tongue.gif but well.. I don't think every series can be divided just like that. Just because something isn't shonen it doesn't mean it's automatically shoujo and vice versa...

I guess it's up to me to pimp Black Cat once again. That's one shonen I definitely wouldn't mind seeing more of right now. *__*

Mahou Sensei Negima is great too. And One Piece, DBZ, Yu-Gi-Oh... I dare say there isn't one shonen I don't like. biggrin.gif;; Yes, I'm gonna regret saying that in the nearby future.
