I just read this manga called Otomen, I find it very hilarious. A guy as a main character in a Shojo manga and this is not a yaoi manga.



Description: From Serenus Dreamers: Asuka is a guy who has likings for girly things like shoujo manga, baking, and sewing. However, his mother forbids him being so and wants him to grow up manly. He starts learning kendo and karate and grows up to be stoic guy. But can he fight the urge of falling in love and hiding his real identity?

http://manga.animea.net/otomen.html

Now for my question:
Do Otomen guys really do exist?
What do you girls think of Otomen guys?



As for me... I don't think I'm one. Even though I read Shoujo Manga, cry in movies, like cute chibi anime things, cook and ........................... O.O

CRAP I am one. >.<

The one thing I don't do is read shoujo manga :P
Well some of them anyway, some go a little too far. (WTF VAMPIRE KNIGHT?!? GUYS GIVING EACH OTHER VAMPIRE HICKIES IS NOT OK!)

Sounds interesting, but not so original.

I read this manga too, very cute and swt...I actually know ppl who are like that AND straight too. They like cute stuff, read shoujo and shounen at the same amounts, and cry in movies. I don't think there's anything wrong w/ that.
Even though I'm a girl, I don't like Vampire Knight either, it's one of those very very bad shoujos on my Hate list that also include
The Gentlmen's Alliance by Arina Tanimura. The plots are Blah...and only complex in order to fire up the dokidoki scenes and provide more.

I've read the beginning of it because there was a preview of in Shojo Beat. I liked it and it looks very interesting, so I plan on buying the first volume.

LOL What's wrong with being an Otoman?

I really liked the manga The art was very sharp and cool, and Asuka's character is pretty refreshing, even though he's weird like that.

lol, yes OP, you kind of are an Otoman... but I think it's really cute.

Oh, Otomen? I like the manga. Very different, I find that it's refreshing not to have some wimpy girl as the main character. I personally don't see anything wrong with a guy liking things like that.

Doesn't look that interesting to me.. though there is an manga that sounds similar and is way better(the author of it simply only makes SUPERB manga haha). It's called "Otomentaru" by Yokoyama Mayumi. (Same author as I *heart* HS, Galism, Bijo Juku, ...)
