I guess I'll kick things off with the most basic questions and ask what's in the title above. So, which genre's do you prefer. Romance, shoujo, shounen, mystery, etc? I tend to like series that mixes things up from what you typically expect, shoujo psychological, or shoujo mystery like Gosick and Bungaku Shoujo among others off the top of my head. Skip Beat also fits into that category at times. So, how about the rest of you?

I prefer fantasy manga with a strong female lead. A girl who could kick ass and could take cake of her self. I loved Basara, Red River , Kanata Kara and may other manga similar to that sort. I cannot stand manga with weak heroines that need a man to save them.. :x

@Foreverfree123: Oo, doesn't that sound like you also like Hwang Mi Ri's works? Idk. Strong heroines just reminds me of her series. I could never never know which one is which one because almost all her plots are kind of similar, I still like her works. ^_^

Have you Special A? The heroine is strong there as well. XD

@Krim: I like series that has romance or shoujo. Hehe, I'm romance crazy. Sometimes when I get tired of all the lovely dovely, I would like to read something that has no shoujo, but still a tiny bet of romance. Fairy tale, Nobless (not sure of that's how you spell it) and Bride of the Water God are the ones I love that is not shoujo. I recommend them to you if you like magic, and strong bond of friendship. ^_^

Well I Do like some of Hwang Mi Ri's works but they get boring... i am interested in Advent of Snow White of the Hell it seems promising.

Well i like stong heriones but the classy ones.Some of Hwang Mi Ri's heriones get on my nerves. They are too nasty.

I enjoy reading now Hana no Kishi and Noblese! :face:

Shounen romances are pretty hard to come by honestly. I do know a few though even they are a little bear.

The main genre I read, are romance ones... but mostly those that are combined with 'shoujo' or 'josei' genres :)

I rarely read 'shounen' genres.. :P
Well, I am female after all, hehe ^^

I like quite a few genres. My favorites are yaoi and shounen-ai, probably because they are usually very angty and you never have a whiny female protagonist. Of course there are always smexy hot men. However, I love many shoujo, too. I like strong female protagonists. They don't have to kick ass, but at least have to have a strong independent personality. I love fantasy and even sci-fi, mystery, and even comedy, romance is always good in any story. Not really into horror though. I like shounen and even seinen because I like action and a good sword fight. I don't really like yuri; at least I haven't found a story I like yet. I do like stories about kings/queens/knights and whatnot, too. I love Cantarella for example, kind of shounen-ai and shoujo, lots of political intrique...gotta love political intrigue! Gosh, after all this I guess it's safe to say that I love 'em all (except horror, hate being frightened).

I love shoujo and shounen, and the occassional josei and seinen!

Ah, but I don't like yaoi or yuri.

As for more specific genres, I love historical and fantasy. But I'll read anything else if the story is good. Sometimes I'll read historical stories just for the art, because I love seeing pretty girls in kimono or chinese clothes like Hua Quan.

I love Shounen like One Piece, Naruto, D.Gray-Man, Gintama etc. Basically something that have interesting characters and touching plot. I do not like Bleach. Yeah yeah it may have been pretty good in the beginning, but after the rescue of Rukia arc, it grows on me for some reason and I just got bored. To be honest, I just dont like those new character/enemy they introduce.

As for Shoujo, I love historical romance! I don't like too much sci-fi or fantasy in it though. A simple Time travel or god related theme work very well for me. Anatolia Story (Red River) and Fushigi Yuugi is ones of my all time favorites. Other genres I like include smut, incest romance, tragedy, and possessive love themes which really attract me. hahahha

Always shoujo! And I do like it when they spice things up with smut and/or comedy! I also don't like the ones where there is tragedies, although Hana to Akuma, even though the ending was a bit sad to me, I have to say that it was a very cool manga! I just avoid reading the very end! haha!

Genres: shoujo, josei, romance, school life, horror, mystery

I like smut too lol (probably why I'm working on hanayome xD)
but I'm not too fond of shounen in manga, I prefer it in anime, though the plot goes too quickly and they leave out some important things OTL.

Seinen, Shoujo, Josei, and Shounen...basically everything, lol? I enjoy slice of life stories.
Shounen-ai and shoujo-ai are extremely adorable, so yes, I do like reading them occasionally.

Though, honestly, Smut, Ecchi, etc. aren't really my cup of tea.

I love smut the most! Especially works by Mayu Shinjo.
Hopefully there'll be more smut works out there! :)
