Usually the type of guy who is dead set against it is either a kid or someone who trys to act manly so not to feel embaressed infront of his friends.
jja will back me on this one, Romance anime/manga are brilliant and allot of them actually fall in to the shounen category.
I'm not all that much of a manga fan and hence I dont have a vast knowledge of good romance manga, but anime such as clannad, kanon, air, fruits basket(a shoujo), chobits and a shit load more are superb anime due to the relationships that grow during the course of them.
Much better than mind numbing "beat the bad guy, save the world" shounen garbage (one piece being a major exception of course)
Yup I can agree with Sangaz 100% on this one. I haven't personally read that many shoujo manga, but I've seen a bit of shoujo anime. They are quite enjoyable, and I have no qualms about saying I like romance material. I'm also not gay as I have a wife and a kid.
I still enjoy a decent shonen every now and then, but overall I enjoy a romance better than action regardless of whether it's shoujo or shounen
I'm going to back them up on this one too. It doesn't matter what kind of anime or manga it is. As long as it has a good story then it's a good show. Romances are usually good stories. They can suck you in and make you keep wondering what happens next to the character. Who will the hero or heroine fall in love with? What will happen to them? It's always nice to see a happy ending and romances deliver on just that.
I read whatever looks good at the time, Ive read things from just about every genre, so I dont see any problem with shojo
Have no problem with it, but I never read it. Never heard of it before this forum. Anyway I don't think I'll like it. I also hate 'girly' movies, so I'll probably won't like Shojo either. I prefer shonen.
Man, shoujo mangas are for the weak...true men read yaoi mangas...
