Just a little poll to know what kind of anime/manga everyone likes. Check all that apply.

Don't know what some of these terms mean?
Shonen- Targeted at boys 10-18. Fighting, violence, action, adventure, martial arts, sports, etc. (i.e. One Piece, Death Note, Naruto, Full Metal Alchemist, Dragonball Z)
Shojo-Targeted at girls 10-18. Romance, love, drama, etc. (i.e. Cardcaptor Sakura, Peach Girl, Ouran High School Host Club, Fruits Basket)
Seinen- Targeted at young men 18-30. Male heroes, honor, slapstick comedy, sometimes sexually explicit, business, crime, political drama, military adventures, etv. (i.e. XxxHoLic, Golden Boy, Yubisaki Milk Tea, Elfen Lied, Gunslinger Girl, Chobits)
Josei- Targeted at Young women 18-30.Everyday experiences of young women living in Japan, tends to be more restrained and realistic than shojo, about work, family, and romance, etc. (i.e. Kimi wa Petto, Nana, Honey and Clover, Nodame Cantible, Mars, Antique Bakery)
Shojo Ai/Yuri- Focuses on same-sex relationships between women. (I think its self-explanatory)
Shonen-Ai/Yaoi- Focuses on same-sex relationships between men. (Also self-explanatory. Want to know some good titles? PM me. <3)

I doubt anyone's going to admit to reading/watching Yaoi or Yuri.

Shonen and Seinin (ones where there's almost NO explicit stuff) FTW. I avoid the last two because they make me want to run away or hide somewhere.

I like everything, except yaoi/yuri.
I haven't read any of it so I can't give an opinion.
