Is a girl liking Shonen Harem manga like Negima! and Love Hina, and especially He Is My Master bad?
I went online a long time ago to this essay-type thing that talked about manga and anime. It gave this great criticism of shojo manga. It said how the girl's in Japan are supposed to be afraid of the hero. And I find that's very true. Granted, my friend loves Chobits (and so do I) but I'm not sure if it's shojo or shonen. Anyway, I'm totally addicted to Negima!, and I like Love Hina, and I also like He Is My Master since the comedy is so much better. Granted He Is My Master's pretty pervy, and so was Negima!, but once you see about a dozen pairs of underwear, the shock value for the rest of the series (any series, in fact) is gone. I like shojo even if they're kinda generic, but I value the shonen for the comedic value. Is this weird?
