    If you watch enough anime then shounen and shoujo just become meaningless designations.

    I like this show because the art gives off such an incredible vibe and the story is nice enough imo.
    I feel it's the type of show I can have on in the background while doing something (still paying attention because of subtitles) but also the type of show I can enjoy actually paying attention to.
    I wish it was all out now tho so I could binge it instead of one ep per week. Sure I could wait with it until it is all out, but I feel like if I hop off the story now then it will probs take a looong while until I get back to it again.

    Yeah it's very much a non-commital kind of anime. Nothing too demanding of your attention. I guess that's kind of nice.

    A very nice show to watch if you want a small break from the usual "stare-at-me-with-all-your-attention-because-if-you-dare-look-away-you-will-miss-the-most-non-obvious-clue-to-the-story" ;p

    ill admit, that was pretty sweet. They definitely over-dramatized the urgency there before and it ended up being a much more sentimental subplot than a horror one. I do dig that.

    A story about a girl, who falls for every other guy she meets, with "male harem", containing of a blond and dark haired guys, competing with each other, is a shounen. Ok.

    Ep 4
    Never thought I’d want a pompous exorcist plushie until now

    It’s youkai stuff and a female protagonist so of course I love it. Also, IMO shoujos (and shoujos in all but name) are the most heartwarming so I looooove them

    That's going to change in the upcoming episodes since the main plot is going to begin being a bit more obvious. There are twists to be had.

    Yes, because shounen is a demographic category dependent on the magazine something runs in, and a VERY VERY broad category with many different types of stories even if some are tropier, and even if people think of default Shounen Jump titles and their tropes when it's brought up.

    also, im just going to mention it because it's funny to me, I MEAN. technically we had a shounen just last season with ' a story about a girl who falls for every other guy she meets'
    [​IMG]
    with a 'male harem' containing a light haired and dark haired guy, competing with one another
    [​IMG]
    it was called beastars
    (and also being pretty homoerotic with one another too, but u know)

    You see what you want to see. But yeah given that the author was female, it makes sense that Beastars feels more like a shoujo.

    Likewise you don't see what you don't want to see :p

    I think a lot of people were struck with homoeroticism in beastars regardless of if they wanted to see it, judging by complaints

    but the hanako discussion isn't the place for me to write my essay on homoerotic furries

    I don't. And I'm glad I don't :pokerface:. Anyway, shounen to me was always "for young boys", not "it was serialized in Jump". If you look up its definition it says the same thing.
