When was the last time you saw the main character of an anime to be a female? probably 90% of all animes have males for the leading role and women to support them (not to mention probably half of them show that women cook and clean and stuff)

edit:alright well the animes i've watched/know about all have male characters

bleach, naruto, keroro, fate stay night, full metal alchemist, deathnote, code geass, one piece, inuyasha, initial d, love hina, evangalion

these are the only animes i've watched that have female leads

school rumble (altho im not sure if tenma or harima is considered the main character) and this one anime that was extremely gory, its that one character with the red hair. Can't remember the title right now for some reason)


edit 2: well fine, i'm talking about the popular ones cuz most of the titles you guys are saying i've never even heard of before

edit 3: I don't even consider yuri as being an anime and even so, its still sexist because its portraying women as sex objects

edit 4: o and prince of tennis

edit 5: mods please lock this because this has become a spam thread

Well, I don't watch anime to see guys kick ass.
So I don't think a show where girls kick ass is that much more appealing.

Most research has shown girls preferring shonen action over the bishounen filled Vampire Knight/La Corda D'oro types, well the American ones at least.

There are afew female leads.... but yeah I guess it is kind of sexist of the guys in the anime would prefer women that would cook and clean for them .

almost every anime I watch has female main characters......
Posted 11/3/08
Claymore, Sky Girls, Gunslinger Girl, Someday's Dreamers (although she's a rather slow witted country girl, practically needing help from everyone), Shion no Oh, Shigofumi, Mnemosyne, Magical Lyrical Girl Nanoha, Manabi Straight, Ichigo Mashimaro, Minami-ke, most anime about becoming a singer/idol, yuri anime, others I haven't seen, etc...

That is why there is shoujo and shounen manga. When do you see a male character as the main character in a shoujo manga? 90% of the time? And what do the guys do in there? Play sports and do guy-ish stuff? Why is that I wonder?

your a dumbass....if you actually watch them all, then you would know....since you havent seen all the animes...then your statement is truly false!
Statistically, there are thousands of animes right now...
i agree that males are the most main characters, but you are over exaggerating...90%?
Seriously?
I would have to say 49% female and the rest is male...
but its natural.... Its been like this for thousands of generations...MALE is The HEAD of the family.......The person who runs the house...dont take this personally from me.....because its been throughout history....
You agree?? Or disagree??qoute it and tell me why

Well, despite the fact that more main characters are male, in general I think there are more female characters so it balances out.
