ftfy

>>100385064

Yes, very.
>>
shoujo is not a genre
>>
Only if you insert as the girl.
>>
>>100385228
Nobody said it was.
>>
>>100385231
But that's how you're mean to watch shoujo anime, baka!
>>
CCS is the manliest anime ever. Sakura is a total badass.
>>
It's gay not to.
>>
Hell nah nigga

shojo is the lick
>>
It's gay to like bad ones
>>
What is a good shoujo?
>>
Nah. Some of the older ones are really nice.

I enjoyed Kare Kano, Kare First Love, and Sensual Phrase. If you ever need a good laugh go read Sensual Phrase or anything by Mayu Shinjo. She's horrible at anatomy and that leads to some pretty hilarious pages

I would watch more if there were good reverse harems.
I can only think of Ouran and that wasn't even one really.

This

and the answer is yes
FACT: all anime fans are bi-sexual in some fashion, male and female.

I tried to read some manga called Orange after hearing how good it was and god it was hideous. The story had no depth, the panels were ordered horribly, the art was bad, it was trying to be good story telling. I had to stop reading after two chapters.
>>
>>100385064
Only if you want to fuck the male lead.

As expected of the protegee of the master of western and eastern magic.
>>
No man, sparklebubbles are awesome.

Romance is great.
>>
>>100385659
Nigga are you serious? Josei is very popular on /a/ outside of the retarded newshits and moefags.

Recent shows like chihayafuru are very popular/well accepted and are doing well in japan. Meanwhile almost all fans agree that the "big two" of josei (nodame+hnc) are outstanding.
>>
>>100385873

Orange is actually Seinen, even though Takano Ichigo made it so it may as well be called a Shoujo.

It's different though. Most Shoujo manga are just standard teeny bopper dramas. That one has the whole future-past twist to it. Personally, I like it.

All shoujo manga have shit art by the way
>>
>>100386002
>Orange is actually Seinen
No. It started publication in a shoujo mag, the author couldn't deal with the deadlines, and moved to a more lenient mag (ie seinen) after a hiatus.
>>
>>100386002
I know it's all, but orange was even worse.
>>
>>100385765

There's quite a few otome game adaptions with reverse harems

Are they really all horrible?
>>
>>100385491

Hiyokoi is pretty good, despite how generically shoujo it is.
>>
>>100386002
Also
>Most Shoujo manga are just standard teeny bopper dramas.
Do you even sci fi shoujo. Or even adventure shoujo.
>>
>>100386086
Will it have better drawings and designs this time?

Watch Uta no Prince Sama.

It's actually pretty good, despite how rediculous and sometimes hilarious it is.

I agree. I adore that part of it, but I'm saying that even if you disliked that type of thing the first season especially, is still a solid show.

Guys, what demographic is Hapi Mari?

I'm finally downloading this show, it's the last shoujo from that season that I didn't watch. Gonna watch a few episodes tonight.

>>100386528
>not posting this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8AzEFia1UEY

Outstanding art, amazing song. It all fits. But the biggest thing is that both the song and the art FIT the show. It's something shows have stopped doing to a degree, and is becoming very uncommon. Instead they rather just put in fan service, scenes from the show, or stupid unrelated garbage (see klk).
>>
>>100386603
I'm actually not trying to bait. Kuragehime is shit.

I wasn't talking about the quality of the show, I was saying that it was her best casting. I dont know if you are legitimately retarded, or you think acting like a fucking retard will accomplish something, but you should step your game up.

Kuragehime is actually pretty great, the anime didn't turn out as well as it could have because of how the budget/sales/production went. Even then it definitely wasn't shit, and its not like the anime is the sole source.
>>
>>100386294
The first I'll research, the second one is okay if you don't mind the most souless eyes in existance, and the third is terrible.
>>
>>100386849
I am saying she had already had fitting roles like Kuroneko, Nadeko and Kanade.

Are you dumb? Bakemono was 2009, AB was from April 2010, Oreimo was October 2010. Kuragehime came out at the same time as Oreimo.
>>
>>100387098
Do you seriously think I give a single fuck? All three of those roles are the exact kind of unfitting shit that she is in recently as well. They are uninspired stupid roles, that are just "LOOK WHO WE HAVE VOICING THIS CHARACTER!" rather than her actually fitting and improving the character.
>>
>>100387245
look who we have here, Mr I know whats better for my VA than she does.
You seem like the type of person who would kill themselves when she gets married.
>>
>>100385491
Kurage-Hime is hilarious. So is Ouran.
>>
>>100387245
Nadeko is pretty good. She has pretty different voices between being normal boring shy girl, pissed off yankee girl, and carefree shrine goddess
>>
>>100387352
It's funny because you actually have it backwards. You retards that eat her up in a multitude of unrelated roles that are more or less focused around her voice are the ones that care about that type of thing.

I would just like her to voice characters that she can improve and fit, rather than whoring herself around to 8 series a season.

Kimi no Todoke and Chihayafuru are the best selling shoujo/josei titles so maybe nip females are ready for less sadomasochism

The animation might have been cheap, but it was still plenty enjoyable and I really liked the artstyle, particularly the line work. It gave the facial expressions real impact.
