I'm F and I can't stand Shoujo. I've never liked romantic comedies. I find them to be boring. Plus, I tend to dislike the main characters. The only one that I can think of that I do like is Ouran, but other than that I can't stand them.
I'm not saying that no one should like them or anything like that, they're just not my cup of tea.

I'm a huge shojo follower, but I have to say that the super tired cliche of high school love triangles (when that's the main plot of the series; there are tons like that, but with other more important plots and I usually like the ones that dare to be different in other aspects) are exhausting. I like more mature shojo series these days, like Nana and Honey and Clover. There are some other HS shojo series I like, but these days, those are very few.

yeah VK was first introduced in japan in a popular shoujo magazine called LaLa. it's also labeled as "shoujo". i also didn't think it was that shoujo cos there's basically NO romance in it at all in season 1. i think its just the pretty boys and the fangirls. there are shoujo that aren't suitable for kids, you know the real ecchi ones


To me, VK is a very typical shojo manga. Some manga are a bit hard to tell their demographics but VK is an easy one to a long-time manga reader like me. There is romance in it but very light at first I guess. And there are lots of shojo manga that are not about romance (e.g. Natsume Yuujinchou) while there are shonen romances. Shojo is a demographic not a genre. Actually shojo manga's genres can be very varied. Some series are for smaller girls while others are for older girls.

I like a lot of shoujo anime, but one of my sisters hate it, and another one of my sisters thinks it's boring. There isn't some huge explanation behind why some guys like shoujo and some girls don't. It just falls down to personal preference.

Yeah... I don't know where they're coming from. O_o

I'm F, but I hate Shoujo.
Way too much overused scenarios and I usually hate the main characters.
I prefer to read Shounen more, for the action.

Well, it's usually wayyyyyyyyy too similar with the plot and characters. I mean, a few I can tolerate, but then it gets boring.

i dont like much shoujos and im a girl...then again i probably dont act much like a girl taking skateboarding with the boys at the skate park over shopping with the girls and looking at a bunch of clothes were not gonna buy then spending hours staring at shoes that nobody actually wants followed by "lunch" which is basically, for most of the girls in my class, talking about what sort of diet your using...im also not obssesed with the condition my hair is in and dont go crazy cuz i gain one friggin pound...then again i guess the girls in my class are just a little whacked about there body condition...and now im just completely straying from the topic...
