I voted seinen, because it has better action than shounen stories, along with some plots and character development that can give other demographics a run for their money

Well currently Seinen and Shoujo are tied with 19.2%,
and Yaoi coming second with 18.5%.

Surprised anyone?

I am happy with the current status of the demograohics. The numbers of manga I like from the four demographics are almost equal.

I need more shotacon (voted) though it's not a demographic cos it's not easy to find a story I really like from the current manga, which are either too pointless and/or with women that are too busty, guys that are too small, the usual yaoi cliches, or bad art style.

Yuri ftw

Although most of what I read fall under seinen, I voted for yuri.
Why confused you ask it's simple when I find a Yuri manga I read it directly but when I find a seinen I'd first read the description.


So seinen would be my second, closely followed by hentai (yeah i'm a guy what can I say biggrin )


p.s.
Don't really care which wins as long as it's not Yaoi no

Im glad to see so many people like seinen as much as i do

it was a tough call though seinen vs hentai...

SEINEN is the best demographic EVER!!!

so far its
shoujo in the lead with 19.4
seinen in second with 18.2
and yaoi trailing with 18

yeah vote for the seinen!

i find it funny that at least three of the selections is a sexual demographic

shotacon
lolicon
yaoi
yuri
hentai

does anyone else think this is funny?

(i guess you can also add
shoujo ai and shonen ai... but arent those like... softcore versions of yaoi and yuri?)

so i guess thats 7 out of 11 that are dedicated to that area... actually that would be a good poll in itself (DIVIDE THIS POLL IN HALF!!!)

Seinen is the way to go ppl, then followed up by hentai and shounen. I can't believe there is than many fangirls for yaoi on this site, it makes u think if guys are reading this too , i hope to God thats not the case. dead

Take all the people that voted for Hentai and fuse them with the Seinen >_>

Hentai is not a demographic like some one already said is more about the content, same with Loli, Shotacon...

I say in the end we evaluate it like this

Hentai + Seinen
Lolicon + Shotacon
Shoujo + Shoujo Ai
Shounen + Shounen Ai
Yaoi + Yuri
Josei + o.o?

Is more fair in that way

...it should be shounen ai + yaoi, and shoujo ai + yuri...

In any case, I don't have any idea why hentai would add itself specifically to Seinen, and not Josei or really any of the other demographics. You're basically just taking a huge jump in logic needlessly. It's already like this, just leave it how it is, even if the only real demographics are shounen, shoujo, seinen, and josei (actually, we should have kodomo in there as well...)

lol
If putting those together it should be like that:
And I don't understand how you can talk about seinen together with hentai...



Hentai/ by itself
Lolicon /shouta
Shoujo /shounen
Shounen /shoujo
Yaoi /yuri
Josei /seinen

They don't add up. They just attract those groups of people.
Pfff...
I'm lolin inside.

seinen by all means.
but this poll is really odd...
and "demographic" thing is really strange too, some positions are picked up concerning targeted audience and some concerning characters' age... confused
