minna-san~~ im thinking about making a manga.. and i want to appeal to both male and female readers..

i want my manga to be shounen but there are some girls that really dont like to read them

when i read a manga, i consider the art most of the time.....

it would have better appeal if the characters are handsome or cute.....

i would also prefer it if the main character (a girl, right?) is also pretty so i won't be annoyed if the male characters fall in love with her....

and don't make it so girly, like crying all the time, etc.......

oh well, that's my opinion....

good luck with your manga

Meh :P, with me it all depends. I read a lot of shonen and the character's looks are important yeah, but it's a waste if he/she does not keep me interested. Especially if he/she is the main character. You can have a cute/Hot/Normal person with little or no personality and it'll completely ruin the story (unless you made them that way on purpose). So pretty much I'd read if the males were cute or no. I appeal more to the characters depth and the storyboard.

Off the top of my head, some shonen manga I love and I know other girls do too :- Eyesheild 21, Yugioh!, Eureka Seven, Full Metal Alchemist, Naruto, and Case Closed

Don't know if this helps but, good luck

I'm guessing girl characters who aren't total pushovers and a cute guy or two would help.
In Japan having some of the very girly looking young guy type characters seem to help some shounen sell to girls.
