    Shit I've read heaps of Shoujo and probably still will, I read whatever manga comes my way that I find good, and most people who know me know I do it, thats why a lot of the girls I know ask me what shoujo is good to read.

    Of course I draw the line at any boy love though, no amount of alcohol will make me that stupid.

    Spoiler!


    Why don't more people read these mangas?

    Oh no. That’s never happened. If that does ever come to pass(knocks on wood) I don’t think there’ll be enough psychotherapists out there to make me right again. But I think you misinterpreted what I wanted to imply. I was only trying to explain that he’s indifferent about hiding porn while very secretive about reading Shojo. I’m think I kinda understand now though. I mean. I guess it’s like getting caught watching Bridget Jones’s Diary..?

    Blah. But that may not be the best example.

    Actually there is nothing special about it, I thought I will never read shojo manga cause I misunderstand the meaning of it, until just now I saw DNangel, fruit basket those are shojo type. It really isn't anything to be shame of, just relax and enjoy without having the feeling to hide.

    My 2 cents:

    If you don't read it because you don't like, that's fine. Now if you don't read it because you think its emasculating or someone told you it's gay... i feel sorry for you. Letting a good Manga, Anime, Show, Whatever pass just because of some Jurassik pre-concept is dump.

    It is like saying: "I don't play as *_insert female game character here_* because she is a woman @_@"

    And if you think reading shoujo will make you less manly, then you are a bit unsure of yoursefl.

    There are thousands of boys who use female avatars when they are playing any type of game that requires u to choose a gender...

    Frankly I've always thought the avatar was a representation of yourself
    But the thousands of boys who chose girls think it's better to look at a girl while playing than a boy... I dun get it...

    Well I love shoujo manga and detest boys' love

    Ouran High School is dead funny as is Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge (Perfect Girl Evolution/Wallflower) I've enjoyed DNAngel up to where the scans stop and I'm too bored to read Furuba

    Would CLAMP's works count as Shoujo as well? If so then I've read loads of those as well

    I've read a lot of shojo, more than most people I know, and when I read a shojo series, I tend to go for the ones that are completely girly, where there's usually no action at all. That's why I read shojo, to get away from action and fighting and get in tune with my emotions. It's nothing to be ashamed of, just like a man letting some tears spill when something really good or really bad happens. People will still think it's bad, so I can understand people feeling ashamed, though they shouldn't.

    And I can see guys going to more trouble hiding shojo than porn because porn proves you're straight, while shojo can make people think you're gay.

    That's depending on what kind of porn you have though. I'll always hide my stuff so no one can ever find it.

    I believe all CLAMP stuff is shoujo. All art I see in that style I categorize it as Shoujo. But that's not the best way to sort genere. -.-;; I dunno why I do it.
