Funny, I met a lot of guys who like anime. Where I'm schooling now, there are less people who watch anime but there are some guys who watch more than me. Like when my friends in middle school didn't read anime, I made them read it and they got so addicted and it was almost worse than me. We always at outside and sat on the wall reading manga...or I would just stare at them as I don't really buy it physically.

I hear college girls talk about it all day, of course I am on the Engineering side of campus and people there are into games and anime. Most girls like Yaoi stuff though. Guess that's only to be expected.

well the problem is that not a lot of guys are into Yaoi(me included not a fan of Yaoi or Yuri but don't hate then) but hey at least they are into anime. They just need to diversified their taste and more people will join in

Well, everyone has their own tastes. Personally, I'm not so interested in Yaoi, but a little yuru yuri (not the anime, "easygoing/casual Yuri") I really enjoy. Which, as a straight female, that can be a bit strange to talk to people about.. You just have to find some sort of common ground, which can take some time, but everything gets much easier from there.

Khaltazar, with an attitude like "guess that's only to be expected", you're going to have an even more difficult time. Give everyone their fair chance, and I think some people will really surprise you.

Yuru yuri i saw a few episodes and it had its funny moments but not my thing but i watch the entire season 1. But i do agree some light yuri is fun.

*raises hand*

I'm a girl, I like talking about anime! =^-^=

Also, I'd suggest going to conventions. There's usually a wide variety of people there, and you can be sure they're all enthusiastic about anime/Japanese culture on some level.

Regarding Yaoi, it's a genre just like every other. It's designed to appeal to the female demographic just like shounen manga and anime are designed to appeal to young boys. I think it's a mistake to assume though to assume that just because we're girls, that our anime tastes are contained within one genre. Frankly that'd be boring.

Lastly, I second what ieatbrainz said also, feel free to PM me if you want to talk about anime. I'm always interested in making new friends who enjoy anime as much as I do!

Well I said if theres a group anime fans and one gender is the majority and they only pick one branch of the huge anime tree is bound to bored the others causing then to leave. I didn't say I hate yaoi i just said is not my thing but i respect those that are into it. I did stated that I do go up to cosplayers at comicCon and give then props for their effort and dedication and that I wasn't afraid to meet other. What i do agree is we need more girls to say they are into it and not be afraid to show the world their love for anime and manga. and that I hate over sexualize male fans that chase girls away. Yes I will send you a friend request since the more diverse my group of Anime friends the better it will be
