Shoujo!!!! *Points to her signature* biggrin

Then it's Josei, followed by Shounen and finally Seinen. I love shoujo because of the storylines that contain romance most of the time (I'm a hopeless romantic, you know) and the drawings as well. Some are lovely others are just too darn cute. Also love the fact that the drawings doesn't overwhelm the plot.

For me it was between yaoi and josei, flipped a coin and picked yaoi.

Seinen, no doubt about it.
After, I would've chosen Josei, and perhaps Hentai/Ecchi (though they're not demographics whatsoever)...

Haha, at first, I thought Lolicon had 20.5, I was like... WHAT? Really?

Yaoi. Even though I don't think it is demographic.

Demographic wise, I would've chosen Seinen, but I want yaoi to win something.

I voted Josei. The pervy demographics are fun every now and then, but if you're looking for real substance, josei is definitely the way to go. eyes

That's horrbile~
I'll go with josei. As much as I love yaoi, there are just too many smut stories~ seinen is the runner up with yaoi laugh
There's too little josei though... ~

But are loli/shouta and shounen/shoujo ai really demographics?

After thinking some more:
I really have no idea... I don't even have a favourite manga... I just like what I like, and don't like what I don't~ Every manga that I find enjoyable has something of it's own...
Still, voted for josei... Yaoi is probably going to win~ Or seinen...
I cheer for both.

I don't like polls like these, where you can't deside...

i think you're mistaken...the big percentage is for seinen, not lolicon... 614 days and first post...

I'm pretty sure lolicon, shotacon, shoujo ai, shounen ai, yaoi and yuri are genres...

I voted Seinen for numerous reasons and here they are:

1. Seinen has the best artwork - This is indeed fact and after having read around 100 manga, I can strongly say that Seinen titles have more consistency when it comes to artwork and it's the only demographic to receive numerous perfect 10s in this aspect, of my reviews. Best examples are manga like: Gantz, Black God, Zetman, Shin Angyo Onshi, etc.

2. It's easy to find great titles that lack cliches - Unlike the Shounen & Shoujo genre, which you can identify a dozen cliches, I can hardly think of any seinen cliches (all I can think of are the usual tragic character backgrounds).

4. Because I'm a young adult male, so Seinen is just right for me. ^_^
