I'm not a rebel: I'm a girl who likes manga for girls.

A lot of shounen and seinen just isn't interesting to me for a bunch of reasons. But, the seinen and shounen series that I do read I tend to really love. In contrast, I've read tons of shoujo that hasn't left a very big impression on me, if I didn't outright dislike it.

Truth is, though, that I actually prefer BL to shoujo. But it wasn't in the poll! ;)

wow.. im in a rebel division?
i love shounen.. dont know what is seinen, though? i love slam dunk, eyeshield 21, hitman reborn, muhyo to roji, one piece ( some stories,though)... & yakitate!! japan + bleach (not recently chapters), & im also like dragon ball's manga... (not anime)

im so.. dislike fushigi yuugi & hot gimmick... not seems like the stories (especially the development).. in hana yori dango, tsubasa chronicle (is it shoujo..? bcos it seems to), fruit basket (though i already regret on buying its original DVD)...

but, ouran is all right.. smile wink grin

Anything with a nice plot is good enough for me. But, I guess I mainly read shoujo, hm. Shounen/seinen from time to time, to get a break from all those lovey-dovey stories ;>

I read whatever I think is good. Anything + comedy is good for me...well most. Needs a good plot and tolerable artwork.

I prefer romance titles. and that's available in both categories most just happens to be shoujo. I prefer shounen/seinen romance titles like suzuka, school rumble and bitter virgin over shoujo titles

I'm a girl and I definitely prefer shoujo. I don't think I've read any josei before. ._. I drift over to shounen occasionally, but ever since I started reading shoujo, it's my main genre.

Maybe I should have added an "other, please explain" option... hmm...

I've read and enjoyed mangas of all genres, but I still like shounen/seinen better.

I am a Male. I guess I'm retarded since I like Shoujo (Prefer). But I useally go for any genre or if I don't know what to pick I go for the one that people recommend that is good / Or I just try it out but God... Wtf @ Yaoi >_>; I read one once by mistake and Oh God....-_- (Insert brain dmg sound effect here.) Greatest mistake of my life. Gg for Curiosity. (No offence for people who Prefer Yaoi / Since my sister is addicted to these anyways >_>)

I'm a girl and i read everything. I like seinen/shonen alot: has action and mostly funny, but i like the shojo/josei because they're sad and sometimes realistic. So i didn't know what to pick. (didn't vote) eyes

...I'm a girl.... I like Shoujo/Josei mostly. But I do read Shounen/Seinen too. Don't care for Yaoi or Yuri. Mostly Romance, comedy etc manga..... Ok, truth, Anything that has Bishounens/Biseinens I like. CAn be shoujo and Shounen, just as long the guys are hot in it. laugh

lol... I remember when I accidentally did that. I thought that it was disgusting, being straight myself. And should Yaoi be put in with shoujo/josei and Yuri with shounen/seinen since most yaoi readers are female and most yuri readers are male?

Reviving the dead after five years wink ~
In the past,I used to prefer only shonen with some occasional shojo. But now,I mainly prefer Seinen and Josei.
