I have a quick question---regarding music concerts, you idol concerts and autograph sessions. what I'm wondering is I read many mangas where in the concerts or autograph sessions of female idols, it is mostly, if not 100% male attended---so basically I'm wondering is it like that for real in Japan?? I noticed its only male concert-goers....its just weird imo. imo why do mangas have that? dont women go too?
just wondering...

For what it's worth - I've watched some videos of actual concerts in Japan, & when the cameras show the audience of male idols or idol groups at concerts and such it really is pretty close to 100% female. :^/

so when its male idol/group, its like 100% females? so it the opposite would be true if its female idol/group....idk its weird to me. i would think some males would go to male idol/groups, even if its with their girlfriends, and same for females goin with their boyfriends, do you think?

the concerts i been to in US, which were hiphop concerts, there were both males and females...thats why I wondering about this. lol curiosity is a b sometimes lol

The impression I get - as someone in the US who is interested in Japanese music, with no claim of being an expert in any way - is that the "idols" mostly appeal to the opposite gender and even if they have some same-gender fans, those fans might hesitate to do something like attend a concert.

Other musical groups, bands, etc. who don't fall into the "idol" category seem to have much more gender-mixed audiences/fans.
