Explain the reason why men like anime more than women.

Basically, tell me why the difference between male to female ratio is so different in respect those who watch anime and read manga.

What would you suggest to reach a higher female audience to begin watching anime and reading manga?

Give me a reason other than fan service or elaborate how they can decrease fan servicing.
I'm interested in knowing your opinions

Men are the target audience and have the disposable income to direct toward it. There's no great sinister conspiracy holding The Womens back from enjoying manga and anime.

The original Comiket was a female fan event. Females have been big into anime from the start. Just as the magical girl genre fro the start had a large male following, typical male shows from robots to sports have, and still have, large female fan bases. There are differences here and there, but there's nothing actually inherently keeping anyone out.

As to the divide between anime and manga, I can't even think of where I heard this, but many men tend to be more visual/motion oriented. I know male audiophiles, but none that are female. Manga can be compared closer to reading books, which was considered more appropriate for females.

Frankly its gonna boil down to many aspects each having a slight to modest influence. There's no huge big Single Reason that'll work to explain it all by itself.

I don't know...I think I've seen a good portion of female fans on here. Myself included.

Because it's more socially acceptable for men to have varied hobbies then it is for woman. Thankfully that's changing for the most part

This.

I'm convinced it's more about who's more vocal about it.

Oh! You mean why do men like anime more than women like anime, not why do men like anime more than they like women.

(Let me know if you want me to change the title to clarify that.)

Men are more visually stimulated than women from my understanding of thing. I bet that is a good reason why. But, with that said I know a LOT of women are into anime too. I truly don't think that there is that great of a divide.
