Hey guys,

Ummmmm I was just wondering if it is ok for guys (I'm a 23 year old guy) to watch Shoujo anime....

My friend, she lent me Ghost Hunt.

Thanks

You're 23 years old. You should know better not to live by the standards or opinions of others.

I wouldn't really call Ghost Hunt "shoujo anime", at least not in the typical sense. It's really just light horror stories with some bit of romantic tension. It's also a favorite series of mine that I've rewatched numerous times so I highly recommend watching it.

But on the main question, yea. Who cares. I'm a 27 year old guy and one of my favorite series is My Little Monster, a shoujo teen romantic comedy. Another series, Ao Haru Ride was one of my favorite shows during the season that it aired.

oh god, wow. I'm sorry, I didn't know you had to be a specific age to enjoy a genre :P, I guess I should stop watching magical girl shows since im 20 years old :P.

Ghost hunt is also hardly considered shoujo.

Its a great show none the less. One of the better supernatural related shows. Had a few decently creepy moments.

To put it bluntly though, no. There is no age bracket on what you can and cannot enjoy.

You do you and screw others' opinions on the matter xD An entertaining story is an entertaining story regardless of the genre or supposed aim of it, if its to your liking go for it.

You'll find people that say it's fine and a much smaller number of people that say it's wrong. Those smaller voices will be the loudest unfortunately.

I think my compass for what is fine for me to do and what isn't is pretty much: Am I actively and knowingly causing real harm to someone, no? Then I'm good to go.

If you can watch shoujo without gagging you are a tougher man than I.

Perfectly fine, but there are far better shows out that fit that genre. Head to the Shoujo section....

...and try a couple others. Some great shows there.
