An example; Saiyuki. The Wikipedia has it listed as a shounen series. Every guy I've ever met who watched it said it was really gay. Everyone I know who likes it is a girl. It was also in the Zero Sum magazine with Loveless.

Now you bring one up ^.^

There are a few CLAMP titles I've come across that were labeled as seinen. Admittedly, I've never read a CLAMP series, but I was always under the impression that they were geared more towards girls.

Also, Chii's Sweet Home (a series about a kitty) and Flowers and Bees (deals with bishounen and male hairdressers, it would seem) are both classified as seinen.

Well you don't have to be an ass about it. It's a cute anime, if you don't like it then just state. I didn't care for it.

Evangelion. This anime should be directed to kids with down syndrome, good rehabilitation for the mind

The 12 Kingdoms is a Shoujo series,but most of the people I met who watch are guys! Even I think it's more Shonen than Shoujo!




Chobits is Seinan,but most people think it's Shoujo.I dunno...Just the way it's written,and how perverted it is,and how the main guy is a loser and surrounded by girls just seems more guyish to me.I don't know why it's so popular..




Saiunkoku Monogatari is a Josei series,but over here,it is popular with teen girls...But in Japan women love it more lol.

For some reason,Love Hina (Shonen) is more popular with girls here. (I think because it's a romance) Same with Ah! My Goddess even though it's Seinan.


Many series are popular with both guys and girls even if they are directed to only one gender mainly.Shonen series like Naruto,Bleach...Gintama whatever...And some Shoujo like Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon....Some series like The Vision of Escaflowne incorporate both Shonen and Shoujo.



Personally I prefer Shonen over Shoujo because Shonen just appelas to more people,and has a bit of everything.Shoujo is sometimes too girly,and too stupid.I prefer Seinan,and Josei.

kodomo no jikan... because in all honesty i have no idea who it was directed at. becuse it sure as hell wasnt ment for kids but what sane adult is going to watch a 9-10 year old sexually harrass her teacher.

oh wait..... LOLICONS, that has to be it
