Okay, which one do you prefer to read? Read the most? Like the most? Wish there was more of? Etc.

For me, I'd prefer josei right now. But I read shoujo the most, I like both of them, each genre has their great manga. And I wish there were more great josei manga out there, probably is, but I hope more of them were scanlated.

I would prefer josei, but as there is more quantity, I tend to read more shoujo. It's more easy to find a good read in josei though, but there is some ammount of smut ones that I would prefer to avoid laugh. Still there is some great shoujo around eyes

I prefer josei its just better. Shoujo is too generic these days its all the same! josei is always some thing different and more real. But I guess it depends on what age the reader is because I used to love shoujo but as I grew older I grew out of it.

I have never read any Josei, only Shojuo has appealed to me.

Shoujo....What can I say about it? I just love the demographic and everything about this...... Josei is probably a close second, I really wanted to see some change for once.

Shoujo, mainly for the wide variety of it. I do enjoy reading Josei though.

Josei for me, but of course I'm biased :3

*Points to signature

I do see an interesting correlation between age and the answer to this question as xxamayaxx already pointed out, and I think there are 3 major types of josei. Those that are categorized josei just because they have mature content (smut with not much of a story) as tsuto said and josei because the subject matter is a little more mature than average shoujo with a good story line. Those may or may not contain smut, but it's not the whole
premise of the manga. Then there is the avant-garde kind which is obscure and psychological and sometimes doesn't make sense, so you gotta read it a few times.

I'd have to say Josei... It has much more robust storylines that involve more detailed characters with actual depth and development.

Josei. I read way more shoujo, though. Mostly because it isn't scanlated as much =/

i'd prefer josei....cuzz of the contents got more options, and the main characters normally aren't as childish as shoujo's, but there's alot of ugly josei's out there, and on top of it there's alot that isn't being translated, either that or there just isn't that much

so with that said i've read more shoujo then josei....i think
