Well, this is a forum site dedicated to Harlequin manga... I think the majority are female while a handful are male. Swedesamurai is the only active male on our forum so far ^^

I think there's a need to apologize Smile. Because of all the freaks online these days, a friend of mine has taken to saying (jokingly) "There aren't any girls on the internet!"

I rarely come across women who like anime, manga and games where I live. I've come in contact with...about 4 total. Two worked in comic shops, one at a blockbuster (back in the day Laughing) and the other I met randomly on campus one day. Me and her were in the same english 1 class. I looked over, noticed her jacket and was like "Is that a Kahn from Bleach jacket?!" and the rest is history. We didn't really have much in common though, since her favorite genre is yaoi and she scoffed at me for reading shoujo, josei and anything remotely close to Harlequin. That's why I love this place

You'd be surprised, but there are actually a lot more of those manga loving girls you know. Does this mean that you've never even walked across a girl in the manga section of your local bookstore?

You know, now that you mentioned it, I don't think I have come across a girl in the manga stores, other than the ones I go in with (either that or I didn't notice). Sometimes I see a guy walk in with a girl, so I can't be sure who's the one doing the reading. But there are plenty of females into manga, anime and games where I am.

Whaaat!? People don't see girls in the comic stores?! Well, nowadays we can buy mangas at the bookstore, but I've seen plenty of girls browsing the shelves. Probably the same number as guys... So strange that no one else sees that.

Yeah same here. Perhaps girls don't talk as loud as guys do when they pick the latest volume of their favourite manga with their friends? (When everyone else in the shop get to hear who slashes who with all of the sfx and imitations xD)

Well, bookstores yes. I meant those shops specializing in manga, anime, figurines and collective pieces. I see less girls there... There might be more girls going into such shops in the bigger cities, but usually I'm the only female walking in...

Ooh...! Well, I guess that makes sense. Like I said, manga is now accessible at the regular bookstore, so they don't need to go to specialized comic stores. That's where I go for my manga! ^^

And the other thing I noticed (at least where I am) is that there aren't a whole lot of specialty stores for that... The only one I can think of that is close to my house is still a 20-minute drive away... And they still have more focus on comics of the North American variety more than they do on licensed manga. That's what I found at the one store we did sometimes visit.

Well, the specialty shops here aren't really that nearby either. But that's usually the only place for us to find the locally published manga. The big bookstores like Borders and Kinokuniya only have the English (and expensive) versions.

That's pretty interesting, I guess for the most part I thought there were more females than males interested in manga/anime but maybe that's cause I'm reading genres like HQ.

But I think females are more likely to also read manga that is intended for a different demographic than males are. Like I'll see a lot of females reading Bleach but not many males reading Skip Beat etc. no sure if this is just a north american thing

Now I'm curious if more girls do manga while guys do anime, haha but that's a new topic I think.

Oh and female here Smile

Its even more difficult in germany to find mangas in a store.. We have one Comicbook store and that has more like the superheroe comics instead of manga. I most likely use the Internet for such matters, if i feel the need for a comic book.

But in a time of ebook readers, i mostly use that, since even the german amazon has nearly all HQ manga in its portfolio for the kindle. And nobody looks strangely at you when you buy such a book/manga and are a 30 year old male Wink

Cant help it, find those stories much more interesting than the thriller/magic/mecha stuff which is the common genre for nearly all the latest anime/mangas.

I would love more of the kind of skip beat (i loved this!) and lovely complex. much more fun to read/watch and relax..

just a little comment from the male minority here:)

I believe this is because it's common to see girls reading male oriented comics in comparison with the other way around. However, there are some guys who read female oriented comics but I don't see the problem there. I believe Motomi Kyousuke is one of those male mangakas who draw for the female market. I love his previous works and Dengeki Daisy is receiving good reviews. So I don't see any problems with guys reading shoujo or josei. My brother does it too Wink

Also, it's also probably because for female oriented manga, it's more about emotions and the human psyche than about action.

That's in another discussion. But if I remember correctly, the age distribution is just as varied/wide. From 16-60... maybe older too! Very Happy
