Quote from Alaena Night
... I don't particularly prefer either "shoujo" or "shounen" because both usually include the same-old same-old plotline used over and over again - shoujo with the unrealistic schoolgirl romance, and shounen with the power-ups and endless fights and long, boring spiels about, "Becoming stronger to protect my friends..." and all that.

^ So much truth. But to be fair, genres don't always make or break the manga. For me, it's alll about the characters. If I like the characters enough, I can sometimes excuse the cliches being thrown around. But unfortunately, this doesn't happen often enough.

As for me, I'm female, and used to read a ton of shoujos.. but now I'm tired of most of 'em. They generally don't excite me anymore. Every now and then I do find some worth reading, but that's when it doesn't focus on romance. Nowadays it's seinen and maybe a few shounen sports I actively read.

In general though, I do try to give a story a chance if the premise seems interesting enough, whether shoujo or shounen. The only genre I mostly ignore are ecchi, harems, shoujo/shounen-ai, yuri/yaoi. Seriously, SO many shounen/seinen manga are ruined by the disgusting amount of ecchi shots thrown in there. Ugh.

I'm a girl and I'm open to any genre. As long as it good of course. I was once a big shoujo and josei's fan but lately it seems that I'm falling into a deeper stuff rather than romance as its main plot and into something that is more psychological and action stuffs... But, I will return to shoujo and josei manga one day of course. probably when I'm bored with shounen and seinen's. IDK.

This world is a comedy to those that think, a tragedy to those that feel.

I'm female but I've never read much shoujo. The first mangas I came in contact with were all shounen (Bleach, naruto etc) and it wasn't until a few years later that I actually read my first shoujo. I didn't really like them, but there are a few exceptions. Nowadays I mainly read seinen and shounen, and the occasional jousei
