Yeah, I love the idea of Crunchyroll but the line-ups never blow me away or surprise me. It's nice to see Bleach and Naruto on here, but you can practically watch those anywhere. There are some other old and new series I like on CR but the majority of the series they pick up are tripe.

Looking at the current simulcast listings, I'd say that Sekai Ichi Hatsukoi is the only show there I would think of as overwhelmingly "girl market".. it's BL and deals with the shoujo manga industry.. not much for most guys there..
Everything else this season is either mixed demographic or somewhat geared to males. As far as "shounen" series like Bleach and Naruto, I'm sure we all know that the romantic subplots draw plenty of the girls (and some guys, even if they're embarrassed to admit it) and the comedy draws both genders, while Hanasaku Iroha, despite being about (primarily) the young girls working and living at the Inn, gets plenty of male viewers because of cute girls and funny situations.

True, it could be a lot worse. I would also like to see CR pick up older series, even though it's easier said than done, because that's what all anime fans want to watch.

Is that so? Not according to this graph:

Wow that's shocking. Around the forums, I see it's mostly girl dominated. Even in those "Are you a girl or boy?" polls, it's usually 75% girls, 25% boys.

The forums are just that, however. They are not Crunchryroll as a whole. Looking at the forums, one would think CR is primarily visited by 13-18 year olds, when in fact the majority is in the 18-34 group.

Younger people are probably more interested in the type of interaction found on the forums here, and girls more so than boys. It also tends to be a self-selecting audience, as most of the older group look at the typical discussions, get turned off, and go back to just watching anime, and staying silent. I know when I start feeling pressured for time, forum participation is the first thing to go.

uuuummmm actually I would put most of CR's anime into either "general" or "for boys"-- there are SO MANY "cute girls doing stuff"/harem/romcom shows on here, and they're aimed at males, even if they have predominantly female casts. No, BECAUSE of their female casts: they're made for guys to ogle cute girls. The actual "shoujo" shows aren't really that common on here.

Yeah, i wanted to say this, although i'm watchin' only one shojo anime. But i still this website is still little more for girls cuz more girls watch shounen and less guys watch shojo. Cuz i've never seen any girl that'll say

I hate Naruto or Bleach

P.S
lol boys and girls anime? Is there such a thing?
Give me a break. All those "girly" animes that you see are mostly targeted for MALES.
No girls like to see a panty shot of another girl and so on and so forth. For example, sailormoon was originally made for males.

So are you saying Naruto, bleach, gundom is all for guys then? Because I know plenty of women who love those shows. There's no such thing as anime for male or female. Come'on now.

I'm not sure if I should lock this thread or not. Eh, I'll keep it open. I'll let you crunchyroller's vent and complain anyway.




Whoa... when did this turn into a 'civil rights' debate?

I never said people were forced into these categories. I know that plenty of dudes only watch anime for pantyshots and examples of ridiculously easy women and situations where a loser guy gets a ton of chicks. So naturally there will be lots of those shows.

However, I get kind of bored of those gags and the whole fanservice deal pretty damn quickly. If anything, the whole point of a typical shonen-type story would be nice to see more of around here. Something like Samurai Champloo or even Inuyasha.

Sure there's lots of 'hero'-themed stories, but like I said, they're all female-lead or the cast is entirely female; making it difficult to relate to any of them.

If it's legal issues, OK that's that. I'm just makin' an observation.

Well if its anything like netflix its easier to get an anime series if its stopped producing good DVD sales. Crunchy probably gets more anime for girls because they dont have strong sale numbers as something like one piece.
And yes there is boys or girls anime, if you don't think so you're being ignorant. No way some guy is gonna be watching something like lil pri or shugo chara, maybe like 1%.

I just don't get it From what I have seen in the anime line up it is about a thirty five percent male and sixty five percent female mix and I think it is unfair.I pay to be a member of this site and I think there should be an even fifty fifty mix of anime that both men and women can like.Or that if you are a star member like I am that there should be an anime list that only you and other star members can view that is not on the normal anime list that none paying members cant see that you can specifically choose you're own anime out of a list of an automatically up dating anime to watch on and to make a play list of sorts.Or I think there should be a suggestion box feature for star members where they can ask for new anime to be put on what anime it is and what anime should be taken off of this site that has become unpopular and unwatched.Now this might sound sexist but my other idea for star members is to have a genderless anime list that both females and males can like.Then to have two others that are inclined to one sex but both sexes can get on the other sexes anime list and watch what is on it if they want to.Also I know it is hard for Cr to get anime that they can legally post and let us view and to pay for it so with those new ideas set in place. I would have Cr raise it's cost's to become a star member or to become a premium star member by around thirty to fifty percent and I think that would cover the cost of the new list's or the suggestion box feature as well as the cost of the new anime and the advertizing.So in turn I would like to know your thoughts and opinions and I would like to know your ideas on how to change Cr for the better as well.Ps if this is a duplicate thread lock it.


what anime did you think is mostly for girls then for guys?

lot of the top anime today are for both like Naruto, bleach, fairy tail and others i seen are for both guys and girls
