I'm in the market for some new shounen manga series, anime too. If any titles reaccure among you, I'll be sure to check them out ^__^

Hunter x Hunter.

Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro.

Gensoumaden Saiyuki (I don't know any guys who like it).

GetBackers.

Gokusen (I'm not sure if it's shounen or shoujo to tell you the truth).

Slayers.

Parasyte.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
I personally find it hard to believe that Saiyuki is shounen. I've been to a few hundred Japanese websites & came to the conclusion that even in Japan there's no male following of it. The guys in my adult anime club think it's too "gay." I can't find anything on whether Gokusen is shounen or shoujo, but all the guys in the seires are morons & the girl always has to save the guy (Princess Shin & his lady night). then again, anything is possible. I deciced that after I found out that a married man with 2 kids wrote 80+ volumes of Patalliro. Slayers seems shoujo too, butI guess since it's a Dungeons & Dragons series.....

What are your favorite shoujo series? (Cho Gals) What about series you though you'd hate that aren't really your style, but you just couldn't stop watching them? (Marmalade Boy & Peach Girl).

OMFG SAIYUKI!!!!!!!!!!
I grew up watching it, I grew up reading it, I grew up practically worshipping Sanzo every 6pm on AXN weekdays, before AXN stopped showing any animes whatsoever!!!!

Others-

-Rurouni Kenshin(my first anime ever)
-D Gray Man
-Fullmetal Alchemist
-Death Note


And a lot more actually. Just having a brain freeze at this moment.
Since then, of course I read and love plenty of shoujo, but at the same time, i will always love those shounen animes. That's where I started =D

Death Note and Claymore are my personal favorites, not just out of shounens, but all of all the mangas I've read.

I like Bleach, Naruto, Hikaru no Go, FMA (I'm sure there's more, but I can't think of it right now...). I've read Death Note, GIntama, and a bunch of other stuff too though.

I loveddd Rurouni Kenshin! It was the manga that got me hooked to mangas and Japanese culture x] Black Cat's another favorite...I'm currently reading Naruto (not sure if I'll put it in my fav. list yet) I used to love FMA, but then I stopped in the middle of it and never went back to it. I tried Onepiece, but the humor and the drawing style's not to my taste. *prepares to hide from avid Onepiece and Fairytail fans*

Well Saiyuki....it's like KHR. It's intended for a female audience.
