yeah, I was thinking it was seinen. I guess I’m not actually sure, but it felt like that kinda demographic when I watched it (yeeears ago. I should rewatch)
Yeah Champion Red is specifically a seinen magazine, so I think you’re spot on.
Can someone please show where it’s noted that Princess Tutu was ‘geared toward girls’ because the manga was published in a shounen magazine, and that’s usually pretty indicative of what the target audience was intended to be?sis the manga came out *after* the anime and it changed Edel into a busty fanservice character…it was more a “reel in cash from unsuspecting perverted nerds ” decision than a “this was made for boys”one. why do you think that one dvd cover is rue in that lingerie-ish outfit that never actually appears in the show?
The Princess Tutu manga ran between the first and second season in a shounen magazine. Manga based on original anime properties exist first and foremost to promote the anime, and the magazine that the manga is published in 99.9% of the time reflects the target demographic of the anime. If it were a shoujo, the promotional manga would have been published in a shoujo comic magazine.
I’m not vouching for the quality of the manga (it’s crappy), but that combined with things like the Rue DVD cover mentioned, the fact that it was a late night anime, is a red light for ‘magical girl anime geared toward male otaku as the target audience’. Lots of shows like that don’t have overt fanservice btw, so PT not having it either doesn’t mean it doesn’t apply.
That doesn’t diminish the quality of the show. It just means it’s not a shoujo, and it shouldn’t be excused from the discussion when talking about magical girl shows that are aimed primarily at otaku.
a scene that really bothers me in HBP is when Ginny feeds Harry that pie thing and she is like “don’t you trust me?” and then just feeds it to him all nicely
because I honestly believe that book!Ginny would have said “don’t you trust me?” and then she would proceed to shove the pie in his face and then say “your mistake!” and just like run away laughing her head off and Harry would just be sitting there with pie stuck to his face and a small grin thinking ‘wow this girl is perfect’
Alaa, an ambulance driver, spends about $4 on meat everyday to feed about 150 abandoned cats in Masaken Hanano, a neigbourhood in Aleppo that has been abandoned because of shelling from forces loyal to Syria’s president Bashar Al-Assad on it. Alaa said that he has been feeding and taking care of the cats for over 2 months.
