Heh, most of those stats don't surprise me at all. The Food Wars one somewhat balanced though for delicious reasons if you know what I mean.

Surprisingly, women are at 81.75% for Gintama. I thought that show would rate higher among men.

Typically, women have always liked Gintama more than men. Must be the officers...

Rather surprised at how many action/action-adventure series are being favored by women. I suppose I shouldn't be though, as these tend to have large male casts, the majority of which fall somewhere on the bishonen scale.

I'm not surprised a lot of women/girls like Seraph of the end but am surprised there are so many fewer men (or boys).

Yeah, in Gintama there are a lot of guys to look at at, but I also suspect that the female characters are so strong and interesting and not moe or used primarily for sex appeal is part of the appeal as well. (at least I assume that remains true for the new season as it is for the older ones. I haven't watched the new one yet.)

I'm surprised to see the amount of percentage for men when it comes to Gintama and Seraph of the end. I expected it to be alot more.

I think its awesome that My Love Story appeals almost equally.

Kind of surprised that Show By Rock is almost exactly equal - not that i'm complaining. I'm ashamed that I temporarily dropped the show after ep 1, as it's actually really good.

lol @ 96% women on UtaPri. Though, I guess that's somewhat understandable, but still kind of funny. Even i'm not watching it (just because i'm behind on a lot of other multi-season shows as well).

Hmm, surprised that there are so few men watching OnS. I understand the bishies and a fair amount of fujo-bait (just check tumblr and see how much MikaYuu is being posted) but there are quite a few pretty girls as well, and fanservice. /a/ loves Shinoa and most of them are male, so the show should be getting more male viewers than it does.

I find Seraph of the End and Gintama being so popular with the women hilarious, but it also makes a lot of sense. Seems like the female fanbase are the main driving forces there.

The most balanced ones I saw on list were:

- Food wars
- My Love Story
- Yamada-kun
- Ulimate Otaku Teacher
- Show By Rock (the most balanced out any of them)

So take that as you will.

Wasn't expecting the 80% ones. I'm curious to see how American people would compare to these Japanese demographics.
