Wait, is he complaining about Sailor Moon Crystal? The show that updates only twice a month? o_O
And if it followed the manga more for tone, there would be blood. And people's faces being melted off as if by acid.

This thread kinda pisses me off. Do you know how many animes are actually aimed towards females??? It's very rare and that we have a couple that I actually like. It's awesome! Usually all I see are the moe harems aimed for males. A lot of anime that's styled moe looks like it aimed for females but in all reality is actually aimed for men. You can go to hulu to watch anime with out paying for plus (I think) and they have a huge selection, there's always funimation and tons of anime on here that is aimed for guys. Even if it came out a couple years ago. Point is, why complain about the increase of female shows when there are ALREADY tons of animes for males.


Also.... I don't know exactly how it works but crunchyroll has to get anime approved or licensed for them to show it. They can't just pick out everything they want and show it. (Though I could be wrong)


On the contrary, there's been a huge surge over the last few years in anime marketed towards Japanese women. Women have been the driving force behind the resurgence in sports anime. Women form the core of Kuroko, Yowapeda, & Haikyuu's domestic audience. Their marketing campaigns also are clearly designed with women in mind. There are also plenty of shows, like Free & Utapri, explicitly meant for women. There are plenty of unsuccessful anime every season blatantly targeting women. Many don't conform to western stereotypes of entertainment for women, but within Japan are explicitly marketed towards women. Interestingly, romance and shoujo manga adaptions seem to do very poorly, as compared to bishounen anime.

I speak of animes that crunchyroll is airing at the moment, and not just anime in general. Of course most anime are aimed at men, but there are so many good ones airing now that crunchyroll has yet to pick up. So bringing back old anime like GTO and golden boy to fill the gap of air time? My point is it feels like CR is kind of floating right now on good anime not from 1990. And the so called Harem anime and girl bands falls into the girl category imo, so as of right now there is a gap in the category of anime I listed. Lets focus on bringing more of those back. Examples from this week alone: Your Lie in April, sailor moon, seekano, cute high defense earth club, gourmet girl grafiti, bonjour sweet, wake up girls. Meanwhile there are some really good animes for the action goers like cross ange, one piece, parasyte, jojo and a few others. My point is the balance of anime has absolutely been shifting towards the spectrum of the market which is not the largest or in most demand. Im sure the views per show support my opinion as well. For the one up top that thinks this is not in the right section, these are much needed changes because like you i pay to watch CR and if I wanted to just have 4 anime to watch then I would go the free route like millions of other people, hence i post a suggestion




First off, I disagree with how you classify the target demo of some shows you listed (see how I'd put them below).

Anime here airing now I'd consider aimed primarily toward male audiences:

http://www.crunchyroll.com/cross-ange-rondo-of-angel-and-dragon

http://www.crunchyroll.com/world-break-aria-of-curse-for-a-holy-swordsman

http://www.crunchyroll.com/parasyte-the-maxim-

http://www.crunchyroll.com/kancolle

http://www.crunchyroll.com/the-testament-of-sister-new-devil

http://www.crunchyroll.com/saekano-how-to-raise-a-boring-girlfriend-

http://www.crunchyroll.com/military

http://www.crunchyroll.com/log-horizon

http://www.crunchyroll.com/aldnoahzero

http://www.crunchyroll.com/jojos-bizarre-adventure

http://www.crunchyroll.com/wake-up-girls

http://www.crunchyroll.com/isuca

Anime here airing now I'd consider having somewhat neutral audiences:

http://www.crunchyroll.com/samurai-warriors

http://www.crunchyroll.com/shirobako

http://www.crunchyroll.com/your-lie-in-april

http://www.crunchyroll.com/fafner-exodus

http://www.crunchyroll.com/durarara

http://www.crunchyroll.com/world-trigger

http://www.crunchyroll.com/yowamushi-pedal

http://www.crunchyroll.com/kurokos-basketball

Anime here airing now I'd consider aimed primarily toward female audiences:

http://www.crunchyroll.com/yona-of-the-dawn

http://www.crunchyroll.com/cute-high-earth-defense-club-love

http://www.crunchyroll.com/sailor-moon-crystal

http://www.crunchyroll.com/bonjoursweet-love-patisserie

NOTE: Does not include long runners or shows targeted at children.

Yeah, not really seeing your point here at all.

I'm male and I watch shows in each demographic btw, as I'm sure many female viewers watch shows not primarily aimed at them if they find them interesting in some way too. Also, some shows have a very wide appeal and are not aiming for just one target demo. Someone could probably make the case for some shows to go in different demos based on different factors. Having "action" is not really the only indicator of a show aimed at males. Believe it or not, harem anime and "girl bands" appeal most to males in Japan. All the shows I highlighted in red text above are indeed aimed at male audience first and foremost.

This is called content versus intent and the content of your post is not a good execution of the intent. Unless of course your intent was to be degrading toward the female anime audience. In that case, you're just an ass. A "lack of content" due to "pandering to females" are poorly chosen words. Maybe take a step back and think before you post.

As mentioned, I'm pretty sure the problem you're having is a lack of shows that you personally prefer. It has nothing to do with the demographic audience of the currently airing shows or an actual lack of overall content. Just because there is no violence, blood or gore does not mean the show is aimed toward females. That's not how it works, even if you think it is.

If Crunchyroll doesn't offer an abundance of your preferred genre of choice than you can unsubscribe and watch for free. I don't understand why you need a thread insulting the female audience to do this.

I miss the days when I wouldn't be so hesitant to call someone stupid.

Honestly, I don't know how much, or, rather, how little anime you're watching on CR if you think it's aiming more and more towards women.

If you think harem is purposely targeted at the female demographic, you're high.

Gourmet Girl Graffiti is one of the most strongly aimed at women shows on the list. Seriously it's about a girl cooking for other girls as they hang out and get ready to go to art school. It's cool so far, but I am definitely not in the target demographic.

I think Military! and Wake Up Girls! Zoo Club are primarily targeted at people who are amused by jangling keys.

Gourmet Girl Graffiti is actually classified as seinin, which basically translates into "young man/men". The targeted demographic is men aged 17 to about 40.

I disagree.

It's about a bunch of moe girls and their borderline yuri friendship, you could almost see the cooking theme as an excuse lol. Not saying females can't enjoy it, and maybe it's a little subtle sometimes, but its target audience is males all right.

Generally speaking, who do think these images appeal to more?


I for one, would definitely tune in more often if the above were moe boys feeding each other instead. *creep mode*

Are we watching the same show? Pretty sure they're not eating that way for female enjoyment.

By that logic since Free! is about guys hanging out and swimming with their guy friends and getting ready to win competitions, it must be strongly aimed at guys, right?

Huh. That is what it's classified.

I'm baffled by that, but I guess I can't really argue about it. Really would have thought it was josei.
