I was very suprised when I saw this, female chosoing Gundam as their favorite series between Apr. and Aug. of 09.

The World is Upside Down!

AnimeGenreRanking

When the Japanese otaku matchmaking service Otakuma conducted a poll of users’ favorite anime between April and August of this year, the results revealed a surprising trend. Among Japanese otaku, men appear to prefer moé anime, to little surprise. However, four out of the top five shows female otaku like most are giant robot anime. The era of the Gunonna and mekajo dawns!

Males:
01. K-On!
02. Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu
03. Lucky Star
04. Gundam (all series)
05. Saki
06. Shin Seiki Evangelion
07. Maho Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha
08. Hetalia
09. CLANNAD
10. Toradora!

Females:
01. Gundam (all series)
02. K-On!
03. Code Geass
04. Macross Frontier
05. Shin Seiki Evangelion / Toradora! (tie)
06. Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu
07. Lucky Star
08. CLANNAD
09. Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann

What's so hard to believe... The newer series of Gundam are becoming more and more shoujo like. Just look at 00 almost over 80% of the male cast are either bishounen boys or men with manly head in a anorexic body. I bet you there are just as much fanpics of Lelouch doing it with his rival as hot nude pics of CG girls.

Moe girls and pedo girls has always been favored the most by Japanese males since the dawn of time (you can even go as far as calling them sexual fetishes). What's more is that the most dominating personality that guys loves in girls (the same applies for anime characters in general) are Tsundere or the emotionless types.

Yes more females who like sci-fi just what we needed.
For anyother female readers if their interested in a very realistic haercore science fiction MMORPG check out EVE Online. It would be interesting to see more female players in this game.
It would be interesting to see more females getting interested in science fiction.
Maybe we will have some female sci-fi authors writting mangas or books. It might have a different taste from all the usual male sci-fi writers.

It doesn't really seem that odd.. Those series have massive fan bases~ Also, pretty good looking male characters lol. They storys are usually very interesting and full of drama~.. Most people should enjoy them if they would give the animes a chance ;] At least that's what i think..

Code Geass? Who doesn't like that..

Also Macross frontier... Ranka is a hugeeee character in the otaku world~ I mean seriously if you do not know Seikan Hikou then you fail at life...

Gundam series always have alot of drama with very good looking characters who usually also come with good personality's. I find it hard not to enjoy something built so well..


Thats just my 2 cents~ Don't hate my opinions please ;D

Anne Mccaffrey is a female writer who rights Sci fi navels. Her books are far better than any other sci fi author I have ever read. I read every sci fi book in my towns library the towns next to ares and more.


So I say They need to make a anime series out of her books. Maby start with Acorna's People series, or the Pern series.
