    I'd love to see a shounen series with art like D. Gray-Man's. That would be awesome!

    Seinen, shonen, shojo and josei in that order. First one I read was Ranma 1/2 I think.

    Seinen mostly. Outside of the big 3, I don't read that much shounen.

    Re: What Demographics Do You Read?

    I mostly just read shounen. I read one or two seinen series, but they tend to be too concerned in being "realistic" or filled with mindless action or exposition to be interesting. And Shoujo I tend to find... boring. Also all the scanlation groups tend to have yaoi pictures all over...

    Re: What Demographics Do You Read?

    I mostly read shounen with some seinen. Shoujo is rare, and I don't recall reading shoujo the past few months, even Kimi ni Todoke due to its irregular release and bad scanlator. Most of my manga on my current reading list are shounen, and the rest are seinen. Josei, I don't think I've read, but I can't be too sure of that.

    Don't give a shit about yaoi or yuri though.

    I mostly read shoujo manga, though I read shounen sometimes. For me, shounen is more interesting in anime, and josei is more interesting in light novel.

    Re: What Demographics Do You Read?

    I think I'm pretty balanced with Shounen and Seinen, though I admit that for the last two years my reading are mostly belong to the Seinen category. I never read Shoujo besides Orange, I suppose. Josei is more delicate for my taste.

    Shounen and Seinen about equally, though I've been trying to get in to Josei more as of late.

    Re: What Demographics Do You Read?

    Here's a breakdown of my reading list. Shonen outweighs the others in comparison, but I'm hoping for more variety in what I pick up.

    Shonen: 60.6%
    Seinen: 21.2%
    Shoujo: 9.09%
    Other: 9.09

    I understand the division between what's age appropriate and what isn't, but I wish that demographics weren't so gendered: not all girls like shoujo, and not all boys like shonen. Gender is socially constructed so having something classified as something because people think that's what that particular gender is supposed to like/aspire to is archaic IMO. [/two cents]

    Re: What Demographics Do You Read?

    I read Seinen mostly, storytelling is often more mature and tends to go into deeper themes and approach riskier topics. Occasionally I'll check out really good shounen as well. Other genres not so much.

    Re: What Demographics Do You Read?

    Most mangas that i read are Shounen ai/yaoi. I read 5 Shounen ones right now.
    I try to read shoujo here and there, but so far, i only read two series till the end, the rest was dropped after a few chapters.

    Discuss the yaoi side of Shingeki no Kyojin and Kuroko no Basket at the Boys Love section.

    Re: What Demographics Do You Read?

    I used to primarily read shonen and shonen-ai/yaoi focused manga, but the new shojo series with all male casts got me to explore the shojo and josei areas. I usually dont read those without doing extensive research on them though, unlike yaoi Ill go right ahead and read just because. Shonen also really specific on its genres, and seinen I have to wait for impressions because often times seinen action series end up dark and such and Im not really in manga for that.
