2013 is turning into The Year of the Fujoshi. Eh, it's a nice counter-balance to the 5,000,000,007 boob-focused anime that come out each year, so whatever.

If you think fujoshi enjoy 38438435 reverse-harem series, you don't know who fujoshi are.

First off, girls who enjoy reverse harem anime are not fujoshi. Fujoshi are girls who enjoy BL(Boy's Love). People who enjoy reverse harem like myself are just female otaku. Not fujoshi. We only like hot boys and we like BoyxGirl. We don't like boys doing xxx to each other.

Secondly, even with this many anime for female fans, the number of anime for male otaku is still higher. Quite higher.

Glad someone finally cleared that up.

And about the show......I hope they don't ruin this too... _(:3

It's a typical Rejet Otoge maybe~ but then again nothing says Typical otoge quite like emotional trauma and suffering. _(:3」∠)_

Hope this will actually have a decent plot. Honestly though, my hopes aren't high for it.

The otoge's do have a decent plot. It's the anime staff who butcher the plot in the anime. Confused

First off- Might I just say I love you for having an Under the Moon icon? I'm glad I'm not the only one who knows about this otoge!

Annnnnyway, I am not a fan of Otomate, really, or of most otome games. Mostly because they pander to one gender in the cheapest ways possible. This time? Sadism.

Yes, there is a big gap between anime aimed at guys and anime aimed at girls, and while I agree that the aimed-at-guy gap would be better off getting trimmed a little, I do NOT agree that we should replace this with "female-aimed" anime. I agree that anime like Senran Kagura and Queen's Blade would be better off being replaced with other anime, but those other anime should be things that appeal to a larger audience, like things from Shonen Sunday or Zero Sum (SOMETIMES).

The fact is, especially in the Japanese industry, anime's biggest market is with guys, which is why you will not see a "majority" of anime in a year to be aimed towards girls. There might have been quite a few girl-oriented anime in the early 2000's, but due to the lack of popularity during that boom, it subsided.

Shoujo anime=loss.This is clear. But still, the main reason why the fujoshi anime earlier were lacking popularity is because they did not follow the source material and was butchered. A recent example of this:
Magi vs. Kuroko no Basuke.
Both popular with fujoshi and female otaku, both animated. One sold 25k per volume while the other is barely managing 4k per volume now. Why? Because Magi's animation was awful and they butchered the story so much.
Many adaptations earlier like Amatsuki, 07 Ghost, Hatenki Yuugi(sp)'s adaptations were not faithful to the source material and fans were not pleased.
Just wanted to say that that's the main reason fujoshi anime don't sell well.
