Is it weird for men to like shoujo?
I recommended Kimi Ni Todoke to my friend. He watched the first couple of episodes and then stopped because it was "too gay." Now I feel kinda weird for watching all this shoujo anime. Is it too weird for a grown man to like shoujo?

Why would it be? Shoujo is just a demographic.

Not your blog.

>>122251291
No.

>Why would it be? Shoujo is just a demographic.
But the fact that I'm not part of that demographic is what makes it weird
>>
Stop hanging out with insecure closeted faggots.
>>
>>122251642
No. Why would it?
>>
I fucking love shoujo and can't do shit about it. I keep quiet about it to my friends though.
>>
No.
Your friend is a faggot, but I assume you knew that already.
>>
>>122251291
If you enjoy it, then who cares.
Then again, i find most shoujo stuff way too cringeworthy. You have to remind yourself its fucking aimed at kids.
>>
>>122251291
Im a grown man, but I only watch shoujo for the hair. They always tend to spend time on the hair.

No. In fact, men watching shoujo and such is kind of the basis for a big part of anime otaku culture. Your friend is just desperately afraid someone will catch on to his unstoppable cock-lust, so he scoffs at anything that doesn't bolster his fragile manhood.

Don't be afraid to watch something girly if you actually like it. I'm not a shoujo fan but I had a good time watching your pic for example.
>>
>>122251291
Nope.
Otherwise I would be starved of romance anime.
>>
>>122251291
Watching it for the cute in that retarded way MC doesn't make you gay, nor does self-inserting as the hot guy.

At least tell yourself that.
>>
>>122255438
Shoujo is for self inserting as the klutzy girl
>>
>>122255511
It's for whatever you want it to be for.

Just like mecha is for fapping.

In the past. These days (2000 onward, rough estimate) Japnese otaku stopped and only rarely shoujo get attention from them. /a/ is a different story, we are more 'girly' than your average otaku.
>>
>>122256804
The problem isn't the otaku. The problem is that shojo lost most of its diversity.
>>
>>122256846
Sadly true, but I'm telling myself things will change and improve in the future.

Shoujo is the only genre that still gets consistent good adaptations along with sports manga.
That said, liking Kimi ni Todoke and even worse, recommending it to a friend is super gay. Might as well ask him if you can suck his dick.
>>
>>122257070
Getting a blowjob from a guy is no different from a girl. A mouth is a mouth. Same with anal sex. In fact, those who like anal sex with a girl are probably closet homosexuals.
>>
>>122257043
I kept seeing people badmouth it, so I was expecting it to be awful, but I ended up likeing it.

The guy wasnt even that terrible of a person, he was just a cartoonish bad boy at best.
and by the end he's obviously a better person anyway.
>>
>>122257070
>Might as well ask him if you can suck his dick.
Whoa, imagine if he said yeah, lol
Would you still do it? I would just so i wouldn't look like a liar.
No homo.

I like shoujo, especially the weird subgenre of 80's sci-fi shoujo.
>>
>>122251291
>Is it too weird for a grown man to like shoujo?
No too weird, just weird seeing as you're not the intended demographic.
>>
People honestly care whether something they enjoy has a label on it with some demographic listed that they're a part of?
>>
>caring about demographics

Wow did you faggots wait till you were actually 17 to start watching R rated movies too?
>>
>being so insecure that you even care

You may as well just be a woman anyways

That's one of the stupidest thing's I've ever read.

Sadako a best
>>
>>122251291
Nope. It won't be everyone's cup of tea, but your friend must be pretty insecure if he thinks a hetero romance is "too gay".
>>
>>122258496
The tomboy and the Sawashiro girl were better.

Of course. How else are they supposed to conform?

No but I waited til my mid twenties to watch cartoons.
>>
>having friends

this is where you went wrong OP
>>
>>122251291
There is nothing wrong if you self insert as the girl.
>>
I think the people who like cheesy romance shoujo are usually the ones with no romantic experience IRL. They need some way to fill that void. I am one of those people
>>
>>122259117
You're supposed to self insert as the girl, AND her impossibly cool and handsome love interest.

Kamisama Kiss is my all time guilty pleasure. I feel gay everytime I watch it, but I don't give a fuck.

Also S1 OP is probably one of the top 5 OP in the past 5 years.

The protags in a lot of shoujo are really fucking cute, which is why I end up watching a lot of them.

>mfw I just finished Ao Haru Ride 12th episode
They got nowhere. It's like they just forgot to make the next episode. Fucking bullshit. Seems like there's some prologue OVA but I want my continuation fuck.
>>
Shoujo is a pretty arbitrary demographic, there's plenty of crap in shoujo, and there's plenty of crap in shounen.
Enjoy what you enjoy, and don't let faggots determine otherwise. Be open to criticism though, just don't let it affect your enjoyment.

Males are MC. Grills are protags. Sexism.

The description for the 2nd OVA. Is it worth it? Will I just be more disappointed?

On topic, what's some good shoujo released in the past year or two? Haven't been watching much anime lately.

Only girls can handle the suffering.

I get really bored by shows that focus on the romance like Ao Haru Ride or Sukitte ii na yo, but I like the comedy ones like Kamisama Hajimemashita or Tonari.
>>
>>122251291
Literally no different than [spoler]bronies.[/spoiler]
I gotchu, though. My favorites are Bisco Hatori and Natsuki Takaya. Remind me of school.

liking anime is weird

>>122251291
only a beta would enjoy shoujo

that being said it would be alpha of you not to care
>>
>>122259208
Lets cry together ;_;
>>
Josei is superior in general
>>
the only shoujous I watched so far are sailor moon (which was more in th background while doing other stuff) and gekkan shoujou nozaki-kun. what i enjoyed about gekkan was mostly the comedy, bit i also found the mc very cute, and the other girl characters were refreshingly different from what you see in male aimed series. but there is also a lot of pandering to girls which i can't relate to, just like there is pandering to guys in other anime. so i guess i could like a few shoujo, but i wouldn't make it my favorite genre.

While it started in Gangan Online, it's also running in Shoujo Romance Web Girly. The internet era brings many trials to demography classification.
>>
>>122259650
I feel no shame. Loved every second.
>>
>>122261326
wait it isn't? I also saw a few eps ouran highschool host club before i dropped it, but that is shoujo, isn't it?
>>
>>122251291
Man here. I also enjoy shoujo immensely. Only insecure faggots not comfortable around dicks try to deny that they do because of shit like it's too "gay". Probably don't even get naked in the showers at the gym.
>>
>>122251291
No. Anime studios are well aware that shojou has a secondary audience of adult male otaku. They've been subtly pandering to them as demographic for well over a decade, ever since the first Pretty Cure
>>
>>122261036
Yes, but that's not the point.
>>
>>122259650
Ew, please don't remind me of that one.
>>
>>122260546
Sukitte ii na yo is pretty awful in general, its not just you.

>new Last Game never

I think I might be done with this cuckage.
>>
>>122261822
There's a distinct difference with "all-girl" shoujo like Pretty Cure, Tokyo Mew Mew, CCS or any other Sailor Moon ripoff and bishounen/reverse harem like KnT, Bokura ga Ita, Fruits Basket etc.
