A real men watch shoujo

Depends, is that a boy?

No, especially not turd about author self inserting herself into the manga and give herself a perfect hushando.
>>
>>144696926
Only if you say "no homo" before every episode.

>Is it okay for a guy to enjoy shoujo series?
In all honesty, shoujo series produce some of the cutest and stylish girls. It's a pity that they don't get the dicking they deserve in porn often enough.
>>
Depends. Akatsuki no Yona was fine despite being aimed at fujos.

Watch/read it """"""""IRONICALLY""""""""

I'd be highly skeptical of the opinions of any male anime viewer who is incapable of enjoying even one shoujo.

Why even watch anime at all if you don't live in Japan?

Well two of my all time favourite series were written by women and I understand shoujo is a different demographic but then at what point would I not read/watch it ?

Because it was written by a woman or stars one?

I admit though I can't stand romance mostly because it's too damn trope ridden.

If you didn't watched and like pic related, you might as well stop watching anime and uninstall yourself from life.

>Because it was written by a woman or stars one?
I hope you realize that a huge amount of non-shoujo japanese media is written by women and stars women. These are not exclusive to shoujo or josei.

You make it sound like the shoujo demographic is some kind of containment for female creative talent or some landfill where everything that isn't a battleharem gets tossed.

I hope you don't do this unironically, anon.
>>
>>144698407
Aprons are literally made for covering your shirt so it doesn't get stained. It looks tacky as fuck from a fashion perspective too.
>>
>>144698505
There are aprons that don't have a top part, and only cover you from waist down. I guess it's one of those, in which case it can't get over or under the shirt.
>>
>>144696926
I unironically enjoy watching the occasional shoujo series.

Shoujo series are a lot less gay than the moeshit /a/ watches on the daily basis

So yes

>not being a lesbian
I'm embarrassed for you, anon.
>>
>>144698926
That indicates that you might have autism.
It's in the first fucking episode, the actual show started after that. Also her hair grows back over time. And overall it's one of the best romance shows of all time.

Why whould you care?

Im totally fine being not mentally challenged and a degenerate
>>
>>144696926
I actually prefer Josei, it's more down to earth.
Shoujo is sometimes a bit heavy on the "prince on a white horse" side.

Liking dicks is pretty degenerate, slut.

Yes. At least on /a/
>>
>>144698926
This. I fucking hate when girls do this. Not enough to drop a show, but definitely enough to have an internal rant and swearing session for 5 minutes and the girl loosing massive points.

Watched Akatsuki no Yona not long ago which is easily confused with this one and she did that shit too.
>>
>>144699326
>have an internal rant and swearing session for 5 minutes
Do you start slamming your arms on the desk as well?
>>
>>144699326
She had an actual reason to do it, and it was certainly necessary. It also showed more of her actual presonality, i.e. she's a very strong person, not a pretty doll with long hair.
I hate you guys who only care if a girl has gorgeous long hair and think it's ruined when they cut it. I absolutely don't understand.

Well, the problem is that shoujo anime is rather formulaic most of the time, to put it mildly. So unless there are actually interesting characters, or some weird spin on a theme or something, chances are that it is not very interesting - unless you are a part of its target audience.
>>
>>144699442
No, but I shake my hands at the scream and wonder why would she do such a thing.

>>144699525
>It also showed more of her actual presonality, i.e. she's a very strong person

I fucking hate this excuse , seriously. I understand why she does it or why she thinks she should do it, but it's nothing more than a fucking cliche at this point. She can be a strong woman without needing to resort to cutting her hair. At this point she's just screaming "look at me and how strong willed I am because I don't need my beautiful hair anymore", as if hair is a measure to how strong her will is.
>>
>>144698342
Sorry, I was saying that not reading it on that basis would be inane. No, I know it's not but it's treated as such by the uninitiated.
>>
>>144699689
None of this is specific or unique to shoujo series.
>>
>>144699525
It's such a crappy cliche, usually used when the writer can't write character development well.
>>
>>144699716
>>144699658
She had an other reason to do it.
The point was not to become strong by cutting her hair. It was a different consequence of it.
Seriously, watch the show or fuck off.
>>
>>144696926
What episode did this happen again? It's been a long while since I last watched it.
>>
>>144700070
>something is used more than once in history is a cliche meme
Also, it is followed by good character development not once in anime. Maybe you watch the wrong shows.
>>
>>144696926

Only fags don't enjoy shoujo.
>>
>>144700082
Fine. Say it's alright for this one show because she got grabbed so it was at least shoehorned in a believable way.
Still doesn't excuse all the other shows that use the hair cutting as a cheap excuse for "character development" because they can't think of a better way.

It's fine if they've always had short hair, but it's a shame to see nice hair get ruined.

Yona looks way better with short hair though.

Shirayuki on the other hand looked better with it long.
