    hmm, i think maybe gakuen alice is one loki.. although its definitely not like a mature manga, though.. vampire knight.. has a lot of romance so never mind. But those are the only shojos ive really read so far. :-/

    Yes, more then you would suspect really. I talk alot on a friendly basis with a comic shoop owner (who has a corner for mangas) and he says guys buying shoujo actually equals the girls.

    As for personally, i don't know really. I do enjoy some drama/romance but i simply can't enjoy full drama/romance thing. I read Mahou Sensei Negima and i definetley do enjoy the romance tidbits.

    I'll force myself to read Love Hina one of these days and really find out if i won't like the entire genre or not.

    xxxHOLiC I am a guy and like shojo manga, so what?

    I am a man and I own every skip beat manga volume that ever came out, and I love reading it. I don't hide or anything and freely share and promote manga I like.

    But I'm not into that boy on boy or girl on girl crap, in some of these manga. I love women too much to disrespect them and myself like that. I'm lucky and love life.

    I never owned porn, but I have seen a lot of porn, sadly (porn websites mainly - was an addition), that stuff messes up your mind. At one point I watch so much porn I got scared of girls for a while and didn't even talk with them, and started thinking about that stuff every time I talked with people. It is scary the affects that stuff has on people. But I had enough respect for my life that I realized it is all pointless fantasy and BS and that is the point, concerning that.

    Shojo mangas are great, they have great stories and as a guy I value a good story. Fruits basket, skip beat, and vampire knight among others. Nothing wrong with romance and goofy fun stories.
    oh my? zzzzzzzz, _o_ wake me up when things get interesting!

    Sometimes you don't even see the difference, for example Orange Marmalade (Ithought first it was a shounen), Skip Beat! is also very well known. And what do you you think about 1/2 Prince, it's shoujo but also shounen

    I read shoujo just like any other genre of manga I'm not embarassed about it one bit, I'll read any shoujo just as long as it has an interesting story.

    I definitely read shoujou manga not as often as more action oriented mangas like seinen or shonen but I do read them from time to time like Kimi no Iru Machi, Kiss x Sis, and School Rumble to name a few.

    Those three you mention are shounen.
    Skip Beat! and Beast Master are Shoujo.
