Here you will find a run down of today's anime and manga news! If anything sent waves through the anime and manga world today, you'll find it in this post! By the way, I'm saladesu, one of the translators and global moderators of MH, and I'll be posting a post like this every day (as much as possible, anyway). Look forward to them ;)

Girls "Prefer Shounen Manga to Shoujo Manga"
Nowadays, even girls prefer shounen manga aimed at boys, so much so that there is a new magazine carrying shounen manga, that targets the girls.

It is being claimed that girls are now more interested in male-marketed shounen manga than in the shoujo manga publishers think they are supposed to be reading.

Question: Do you prefer shonen manga to shoujo manga?

All love shounen manga (assuming they were not confused by the many meanings of “O” and whatever was on the other card, and that they were even given any choice in how to vote by the producers), and not the marvels of shoujo manga, it would seem.

Manga fans have now been left pondering the seemingly paradoxical prospect of a shounen manga magazine exclusively targeting this promising female demographic, and just whether this supposed trend is actually offset by all the men reading female-oriented manga for the perverted sexual antics such publications are so fond of.

"The World God Only Knows" and "God's Miso Soup World"

Miso Soup pun on series title "The World God Only Knows".

Animate stores will begin stocking "Kami no Miso Shiru Sekai" (God's Miso Soup World) from mid-June. That is, instant miso soup sachets based on the anime adaptation of Wakaki Tamiki's manga "Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai" .

The name of the product obviously is a pun on the name of the series, and each box contains some stickers from the series. The miso is raw, purportedly in order to give a "godly taste that soothes the heart". Each box contains two servings and costs ¥368.

You're right.
Most of fan girls in my country are shounen-ai / yaoi fan.
