Any other animes that grabbed a completely unintended audience?

Gochuumon. It was intended for adult men, but only little girls watch the show.

Any magical girl show

I thought VD wasn't popular with any demographic whatsoever.
>>
>>158625435
I heard Prison School was very popular with females.

Japanese girls like to be dominate, plus the men get into the fan-service action as well.

zukkyuun kyu kyu kyu kyun!

Magical girls series that have male fans.

In nipland it was about half/half to be honest.

The creators expressed suprise that it was more popular with women than men.
>>
And by vastly OP means that only about 100 females liked it to 5 men because this shit bombed.
>>
>>158629065
Women actually have good taste in girls.

It isnt judging by the BD and DVD sales

Women like lesbianism more than men. Men like it because "so hot", but can get bored of it quickly. Women like it because emotions and intimacy.
>>
>>158629065
>raunchy show about lesbian melodrama with a gocus on breast play and female orgasms
It was literally made to appeal to gay girls. Anybody who says elsewise is a filthy liar
>>
>>158625435
Because people are human? You know it's funny that even regular people seem to believe their own delusions of what people and demographics like and when they're surprised it makes you look even more retarded.

Seriously get out of your own ass, the creators are dumbasses thinking they can "appeal" to one set of people without any others liking it.

Retardation, and people wonder why anime is so damn unpopular compared to japan

No it wasn't the gay girl audience isn't really big. They made the show to pander to us yuri lovers in general.
>>
>>158625435
I hear Love Live is popular with girls

And the show sold accordingly

Definitely Pripara. It is pretty much the Japanese equivalent of MLP.

pretty much any anime that is directed to children will appeal to men cause "MUH MOE" so there is that.
>>
>>158634834
True, but a lot of anime targeted at children are fun to watch. All of the iconic series that influenced the industry as it is now were made for children but had appeal to adults.

Saint Seiya got so popular with women that it shifted WSJ's readership. From a modern perspective it looks like generic fujobait but SS created the concept of fujobait

I am a man and I don't even find it sexually appealing, I always skip yuri on the panda. Yuri is my favorite form of serious romance though, and my favorite series pretty much all have lesbianism in them. Men have feelings too, Ms. Fujo.

Grendizer was popular among women and it helped to build the yaoi fandom on Japan.
>>
>>158633997
And PreCure before it, although Futari Wa was trying to be all ages.

Sports shounen are the most monolithic answer, given they're technically meant for young boys but are bought by fujos. A cheeky answer is Tetsujin 28, because of mama bear proto fujoshi wanting to do things to the protagonist. It's why Shotacon is called Shotacon, after the kid protagonist.

The machine clearly says aikatsu. Can you even fucking read? Stop being so God damn new.
>>
>>158625435
Huh, it's like the exact opposite of the magical girl genre.
>>
>>158637155
Yep I agree, that kind of romance can be made even better than any other type of japanese generic love stories
>>
>>158637155
>I always skip yuri on the panda
Why? Most of it is tailored to girls and sissies.
>>
>>158636963
Huh. That makes sense.

Why do people do that?
Come onto the internet and tell lies like that.
>>
>>158637843
Everyone on /a/ is a man. /a/ is a male-only board. "fujo" threads are really just full of fags. It is normal for a straight male to appreciate yuri, which is the highest and most endearing form of love. Men have no place in romantic stories, objectively. There are pretty much no harems in the world that wouldn't be 200% better if the MC were female.
>>
>>158638047
Well, that's it.
Shut down the internet, he nailed it.
Nothing left to say. Adios.
>>
>>158638047
Don't just spell it out like that. It breaks the illusion that we're all little girls and annoys the .1% female posters that browse this nightmarish shithole (or worse, makes them feel special).

I read yuri for the lovey-dovey cute stuff, not for sex scenes, which are fairly boring to be honest. And please spare me relationship drama.

Not all magical girl shows are targeted at children.
>>
>>158625435
Yamakan certainly didn't get the audience he intended.
>>
>>158639488
Hey, it sold 3.36 Akibas. That should be enough for anyone.
