    How many guys read Shojo mangas?

    How many guys read Shojo mangas?

    If you do is it something you would try to hide more than porn? Only asking cause I’m genuinely curious. I walked in on my brother reading a copy of Nana and he had a spaz attack trying to hide it.

    I read a few, but I dont hide it, for two reasons. One is that my family doesnt know what the hell I'm reading, and two, its all on my computer. I wonder why being caught reading shojo would be worse than being caught doing "unspeakables" with porn?
    Yawn...

    But I voted "Yes. Why not? It’s nothing to be embarrassed about." because your question is "Do guys read Shojo manga?".
    yeah shonen is really good

    No, but there's really nothing wrong with it. It's just not in my taste.
    That's funny about your brother though.

    Not really read any start to finish, but it's more I was disappointed in the quality than an aversion to the genre, one of these days I'll hunt down some quality Shojo and read them. Got to say some of the themes are pretty wonky to my eyes, Hot Gimmick for example has what I feel is an incredibly questionable portrayal of a relationship given their target audience. Make an adult Manga focused on an abusive male dominated relationship, fine, mature audience can pick what they like. Portray it as semi-normality in a Manga for younger girls = fewkin' weird.

    Read Suzuka start to finish, not really a Shojo, but thematically similiar, enjoyed it even though objectively it was total crap.
