Quote from nitarox
i have another question : what is the difference between yaoi and shounen ai

shounen ai is just two guys who fall in love with another, often doesn´t get further then kissing. yaoi has sexual content. it is used for manga with normal gay sex to sm, rape or hardcore. some yaoi are also have hentai as genre.
anyways, this should have been posted in random question attemp II

Quote from wikipedia
The stories tend to be about everyday experiences of women living in Japan. Though there are some that cover high school, most cover the lives of adult women. The style also tends to be a more restrained, realistic version of shōjo manga, keeping some of the wispy features and getting rid of the very large sparkly eyes. There are exceptions in the style described above, but what defines josei is some degree of stylistic continuity of comics within this particular demographic (the same is true with different demographics that have different stylistic tendencies).

Josei comics can portray realistic romance, as opposed to the mostly idealized romance of shōjo manga. A famous example of a Josei is Honey and Clover, which was animated, which is unusual for josei comics. Josei tends to be both more explicit and contain more mature storytelling.

I think if the series get popular enough, guys read/watch it

like Sailor Moon, Cardcaptor Sakura and so on

ad some are preety borderline, like Gakuen Alice and Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles

on the other hand, my guy friend tried reading [m]Ouran Highschool Host Club[/m].......he ended it in 5th episode.....

Guys who read shoujo are gay? What a weird idea! Where the hell did that bizarre misconception come from confused Shoujo / josei romances deal with straight couples, so isn't it illogical to think that gay guys would want to read them?

That's like saying girls who read ecchi manga are lesbians...and I know plenty of girls who read ecchi and even yuri - and they're all straight embarrassed

I'm a girl, btw - and I read pretty much any manga that isn't porn (hentai, shota/loli, yaoi, yuri or smut).

We girls (or me at least) read shounen too, so why would it be wrong for guys to read shoujo? biggrin I don't mind at all, people should read what they want to read. We shouldn't be too rigid or conservative about the genres, that'd be too boring.

I don't like shoujo.

The only shoujos I ever considered more than "mere shoujos" were Aishiteruze Baby and Dengeki Daisy.

Nothing against guys that like it tough.

I've noticed a trend in the guys I've met who claim to read "shoujo"ómost of them read harem, ecchi, or shounen romance and think it's shoujo. Not so, dear boys. I've never met a boy who actually reads shoujo, but I'd like to.

I have 180+ shoujo manga in my reading/on hold list, and 90+ in my completed list. Not that it's something to be proud of biggrin (and quite a lotta josei too)

You probably haven't met many guys, especially ones who aren't blind.
