I thought of this recently due to some polls going around about "anime girls love and guys hate" and "anime guys love and girls hate," and because of Free! (one of the few blatantly fujoshi-marketed shows against the many male-marketed fanservice shows) getting a whole lot more publicity than it probably deserves.

Here's the 25 anime that girls love and guys hate

The top 25 that guys love and girls hate

When I look at these lists, I think there's no way these can be right. I think the top list was voted on by guys who hate all things bishounen, and hate the fujoshi that enjoy yaoi shipping. I also think that the second list was voted on by guys who don't know much about what shows girls actually dislike (Madoka Magica!? Girls like Haganai. YuruYuri has a considerable female fanbase. Etc.).

I kind of want this to be a general discussion, but I'll start us off with a more specific topic:
Men generally like ecchi/moe/yuri shows. Girls (apparently) generally like bishounen and yaoi. Can one side really judge the other for liking what they like? Does all of the friction between the two sides stem solely from their lack of understanding of each other?

Also, if you're not really sure what I mean about something, please ask. I had a lot more to say, but I'd rather spread it out through a few posts.

weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeboos

Personally I watch all anime except for shounen ai/yaoi. Therefore I do no participate in any discussions of animes I do not watch. With the upcoming anime Free! I will not voice any opinion about it once it airs; nor will I after it finishes.

You can judge anything you want if you've given it a try otherwise your opinion really is based on nothing.

Imo, Amnesia deserves to be on both list. As for Free! goes, it was basically hype and the preview that went viral awhile ago when it debuted.

I love:
Kuroko's Basketball
The Prince of Tennis (but those fillers in it is quite stupid for the most part, so I've taken a break from the first season)

Guys hate Gintama? o_O
Pretty sure most guys think it's awesome.

The ones I thought was good, like those I didn't hate but not loved:
Hetalia (I started watching this forum the comedy, continued for the comedy)
Gintama (Started watching for the comedy, continued becaus of it)
Sengoku Basara (Started watching it for the action, continued becaus of it)
Durarara! (Same as above)
Daily Lives of High School Boys (Comedy)
Inazuma Eleven (I can see why guys would hate this, it's pretty ridicolous. But I can't understand why girls would love it, there's no bishounens in it, as far as I could tell. There's kids in it Unless those kids actually become adults during it)

Code Geass and Magi, really?
Where the heck did you get these lists? .Sankakucomplex.com? If yes, you should belive everything you read on there :P
--------

You can belive in the other list, for the most part at least.

Yeah, the sequel to the K anime is going to be a movie. Here's a link: http://marchen-v-friedhof.tumblr.com/post/51382684520/ks-sequel-announced-to-be-movie-version

I have mixed feeling about this...

*It's not an official source (eg. ANN) but, I believe it since he was reporting from a project K event where it was announced that the sequel to K anime would be a movie.

UPDATE: Found an official source: http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2013/05/26-1/k-anime-movie-slated-for-2014

Ok, you really did get those lists from sankakucomplex.com.
No wonder the first list is unbelivable.

Yeah, they are from SC, so you have to take them with more than a grain of salt, but I'm trying to think about who actually voted on these and what went through their minds before deciding what the polls are actually saying.

Like, guys like Gintama and Kuroko's Basketball. But I get the feeling when people thought about what girls love, they might have thought, "Ugh, gross, girls do yaoi shipping in Kuroko, therefore I hate Kuroko's Basketball."

Same with Code Geass (character designs by CLAMP) and Magi (Sinbad is a handsome dude).

There was a lot of internet backlash against KyoAni following the announcement of Free! amidst all of the celebration of girls everywhere. A lot of it amounted to "Screw what the girls want, we need more Haruhi." Before, you could kind of complain that fangirls and fujoshi were kind of annoying, but the guys really made themselves look bad this time.

Well I'm a fan girl but I'm not this other thing. I'm not into yaoi.

But it's kind of like how it is to be a female gamer and a femal anime lover.

You realize you are in a male oriented world. It's changing but it's still true.

I have to see fanservice and suggested yuri all the time. I don't complain and just go on. But the moment a guy is the subject of fanservice there's a problem. Seems odd to me. I don't quite understand it really.

These list is odd because I like the anime girls hate as well as the ones girls like.

Is it really wrong for me to like kuroko and think some of the guys are hot? Not yaoi but yes I think the guys are hot.

How is that different from the busiest girl and anime leg threads?

There simply is not enough otaku girls. If you look at slice of life (and other) animes most of the girls are portrayed as fujoshi's.

ie: snafu, IS, seitokai no ichizon, etc... the girls simply love BL.

edit: the bust thread was actually started by a girl, not sure if that is relevant.

Do guys really have the right to complain though? I mean girls don't complain about your guys yuri or lol icons

Personally the amount of lol icons or little girls in sexy manner bothers me but I don't complain because Live and let be

With the amout of perversion guys do. Girls show have the same right

Then again I don't agree with some of the girl perversions but they have th right to them

I am not complaining just so everyone is clear.

well the guys who do complain are the ones that think he is entitled; entitled to determine what/which type of animes are the best. I still believe that the anime industry is very faction'd. it simply is the voice of a particular faction that is overheard.

Take this site for example there are plenty of males that are going to watch Free! (for whichever reasons he posted, of which I can't remember).

I am also not sure why the girls on this forum do not start male oriented threads as much as the guys. if girls started "a guy with best butt* thread I don't know how many girls will image dump there. I can't answer that (for obvious reasons). The notion of male oriented is very true, but there is more girl oriented anime "stuff" that the western culture is not aware of.
