I looked through first 15 pages of manga by rating and find ridiculous amount of yaoi and shoinen ai manga. What is up with that? Is it that good or majority of people voting prefer that genre?

yaoi readers like them and rate them high, that is your answer.

Yes, yaoi is that good. biggrin You can get so addicted to it so fast, no amount of rehab is going to save you. smile wink grin Also, yaoi fangirls tend to be willing to go the extra mile for their fandom. Of course, fangirls tend to be a bit on the crazy and obsessive side anyways.

high yaoi rating means that either there is a huge increase in girls or a huge increase n gay guys.

My theory is that it's for all the girls who are annoyed by the heroines of het romances. This way it's double bishies and no distractions! And no, I don't read yaoi. bigrazz

I know that world is bigger... But nevertheless it seems strange. Guess if boys like to watch girls on girls action smile, why not the same to be true for girls?

Doesn't seem strange to me it's pretty normal actually. Welcome to the manga community.

Yaoi Fangirls are attempting to take over the planet, this is just the first step:
1) Read Yaoi
2) Force Yaoi onto others
3) ? ? ? ?
4) Domination!

From what you've said in other posts, you have very specific tastes.

I don't see anything strange about girls liking yaoi, but I do find the sheer volume of yaoi to be quite intimidating. You don't see very much yuri at all by comparison, though I think some of it is indoctrinated into the hentai section quietly.
