/a/ is it weird if I like shojo anime and I'm a guy?
Not at all. I swear there are some shoujo protagonists more manly than most guy protagonists in modern anime these days.
By the standards of normals , it's weird to like anime in general.
It was alright but I realized it wasn't that great shit after watching this and kimi ni todoke
This had great girls though and Maka had great reactions.
Normies only like anime when it's shit like SAO, KLK, SNK or any of the big three. Fucking hypocrites.
I feel like a lot of shoujo is better at character development more than your standard anime or manga. Shame most of them don't have very good art.
I'd watch more shoujo, if only your average shoujo series didn't suck so bad.
Pic not related.
I liked her better in her Psy-Cop role.
You'd be sort of weird not to.
Stereotypical middle-school shonen and shoujo for whatever reasons have the hands-down best girls for no goddamn reason.
If you didn't like it, you'd be pretty goddamn gay.
>judging anime by demographic
People still do this?
Mentally ill supermodels are more fun to watch read about than supermodels with a minor personality quirk.
That is to say, so long as they don't go around raping the objects of their affections with their baseball sized hands or even threaten it because that's ridiculous
>/a/ is it weird if I like shojo anime and I'm a guy?
Kimi ni todoke is my favorite romance.
Sawako is my waifu.
I think I watched a couple episodes and one of the guys pissed me off so I stopped watching it.
It's the one with the ugly chick and the group of handsome guys trying to make her beautiful or something right?
I'll try Princess Tutu, and I can't believe I forgot about Ore Monogatari, it's one of my favorites.
Yea I never really liked it.
Thanks anyways though.
This is /a/s version of:
/mu/ is it weird if I like hip-hop and I'm white.
so much potential
for those days when you know you're gonna lose your spaghetti
>reading Ore Monogatari
>Yamato hinting she isn't pure
>turns out she actually just wants to hold hands and snuggle
I don't know if my heart can take much more of this.
Kimi ni todoke
Ouran High School Host Club
All pretty good and really distinctive differences between them and shounen treatments of the same sorts of situations. (like no one has to win, and people actually think of one another's feelings)
Nana sometimes gets classed shoujo and is apparently decent, but I haven't seen it.
Would you guys classify Chihayafuru as Shoujo even though technically it's Josei?
I wouldn't. It's decidedly calmer and very happy not to resolve its loose ends and romantic bits. It's probably on the most accessible side of Josei to people who like Shoujo, though.
>you will never even be fit as a human being to be the loser in a shoujo manga who has their love rejected
I actually recently got interested in shoujo myself after watching Hime-chan no Ribbon. Also all the Cardcaptor Sakura figs coming out recently is compelling me to watch that. I'm just gathering up a lot of shoujo shit right now to watch/read and hopefully I'll find some with good stories.
I've always found it pretty amusing how much of a demographic overlap there is in anime and manga in general. Guys liking shoujo isn't really odd when a sizable portion of Weekly Shonen Jump's readers are female.
If a guy likes shoujo, it's because he's getting something that shounen doesn't provide. Namely,
>male character with a personality
>male character who's assertive and dominant
