I really want to know why we have to be guys to read/watch the following maga's/animes.

1. Chobits
2. Tenjo Tenge
3. A.I. Love You
4. Love Hina
5. Sensual Fraze

These are only just a few. I know they were originally intended for boys but I get crap on it every day, and I want to know why.

Weird... I was under the impression that Chobits and RabuHina are shonen manga...

Some of mei's male friends have watched/read a few of the ones listed above, and they have mentioned that those are more geared towards a male audience. But really, one doesn't have to be a certain demographic to watch anything.

Actually, mei has enjoyed several episodes of Love Hina, with the above-mentioned male friends. They were perfectly okay with mei's joining them. The people who criticize you are just narrow-minded.

They're pretty much all shonen manga for the fact that they have excessive amounts of fanservice, but really because of their general cuteness factors and largely female casts, they're often assumed to be shoujo, and are widely appealing to both sexes. I don't get why you'd get flack for it.

I meant it makes you seem lesbian I guess.

Well excuse us girls if we like to watch that stuff and don't want to be called a friggin' lesbian!

I'm a girl, and I'd like to defend my rights to watch these shows as well! I watch Love Hina and I enjoy it very much, yet I'm a GIRL, so what do I know? *sheesh...*

Hey, no one's accusing you...I'm just saying, that's why girls get judged.

OMG, I'm a lesbian? Do I have to tell mother?

I know more girls who read/watch those series than I do guys (no, not like that).

It makes sense. Not most guys are willing to admit that they enjoy something that has high doses of cuteness within it. I guess in Japan, they're more comfortable with that. (In the land of Hello Kitty, cuteness reigns.)

Like my friend who refuses to enjoy Fruits Basket (Well, then again he refuses to enjoy pretty much everything I like, animewise. He held out with hating FMA for about 40 episodes before he finally caved.)

Not at all! Although, I prefer action/fantasy myself... anyway, I read Chobits in 7th grade at the age of 12. I didn't find it that bad. I mean... there were some... questionable parts. But I don't think only guys should read it. I mean, for Heaven's sake... it was written/drawn by a group of women !
