I do read a bit of it, but I am much more selective with shojo than I am with male-focused comics...I will probably read a shonen rated 6/10 or above, because if they get it wrong, the worst it can really be is boring, while a seinen done wrong can be a train wreck of failed edginess and a bad shojo can be downright offensive. My margins of error are probably above 7/10 for a seinen and 8.5/10 and above for a shojo. Nonetheless, I think a shojo manga at its best is far better than the best a shonen can be.

I do like shoujo, but I do agree that a bad shoujo manga is pretty painful to read - and there are a lot of bad ones. Hell, even the good ones will pull out the same old "guy who the main girl is in love with because he's 'cool' even though he's a fucking asshole who treats her like crap" trope. But still, I like reading it because I don't want to just confine myself to stuff that's aimed just at "my demographic". There's a whole world of variety and other perspectives I'd be locking myself out of.

Having said that I think it's also pretty annoying when guys pat themselves on the back for being Super Different and Sensitive or whatever for reading shoujo manga or say "it's manly", like if they admit to themselves they like something for icky girls they'll lose their man-card and have to go eat a pound of bacon or some shit.

I love some Shojo. I'm really not all that picky with Genera so as long as it's good I normally like it.

Goong, Crazy Girl Shin Bia (best manga ever!), Shinobi LIfe, Kimi Wa Pet, Kanata Kara, Let Dai (that's more shounen ai, it's the saddest manga you will ever read). Lol, I'm not really a guy, I just wanted to give out some recommendations!

Shoujo manga is the best manga...
It's like, true love only exist in the world of shoujo.

Really like Say I Love You (Suki tte Ii na yo), and it's just one of many beautiful and interesting shoujo manga out there.

But, I'm not really a pussy hunter, and don't care for big boobs. So some would say I don't qualify as a guy / man.
