    What do you think about shōjo-ai/shōnen-ai anime?

    Recently i saw two series type shoujo ai/yuri: Maria Sama Ga Miteru and Strawberry Panic!. More or less both have the same history. 3 schools only for girls, one dormitory for the 3 schools, romance and love between 2 or more characters. I like that series, but when my oldest brother and a friend saw a chapter don't like'em. Both say to me that was incorrect (u know, the homo relations, all the things the people says about that, that kind of things). Also know friends what are fans of yaoi/shonen ai, but don't say a word about that.

    My question is: that type of anime series are right? Likes or dislike you? And what do you think? Are right or not?

    I think it's another type of anime. It's another kind to enjoy a drama/romance/love serie. Another point of view. What about you?

    Moderators, if any part or opinion of this thread, including me, is wrong, please, tell us to make the corrections. And if exist another thread (i don't remember saw another one, and i was looking for) please, don't delete this and make a only one thread.

    Good night to everybody!

    Well, I have no problem with shoujo-ai/shounen-ai. Like what you said: They are taken from another perspective. I mean, for me, it would be quite boring too if all romance-genred anime were about heterosexual couples.

    mmhmm.

    I have no problem with those types of anime either. I enjoy all types of anime. As for the whole lesbian/gay issue, I believe that is all up to the person. I enjoy watching it, cause it is romance. And I, as a female, love romantic animes.
    I don't suffer from Insanity. I enjoy EVERY second of it!!!

    Depends on my mood I huess. Sometimes I like settling down with those and sometimes they make me sick. Its a diffrent way of thinking and that makes it desirable. But it still s up to my mood whether I like it or not.

    Our love will go on until the end of time. I will always be yours and you will be mine.

    I don't think there's a right or wrong kind of manga/anime. I know that I don't read yaoi (boy love) solely because I don't swing that way, LOL--I've read maybe one or two... Eh... Not my cup of tea. That's all I can say about yaoi.

    But to each thier own, y'know? Yuri... Yuri's okay. It's pretty much the same thing, 'xcept with girls. I've read a few. They're alright. I wouldn't put it on my top five manga to read list, but I'll get down on a couple. I mean there's good humor in either or (yuri/yaoi) but it just doesn't keep hold of my attention long enough for me to shell out ten bucks a volume.

    I have no probleme whit shonen ai anime i think some are very good seen from a romantic point of view.
    I saw Strawberry Panic and i liked it very much and i tought it whas very intresting, the fact that Etuale-sama showed litlle emotion whas verey good for the storyline.
    I also liked the fact that it's about tree girl schools that are located on the same hill and share the same dormentry, it,s defenetly a good story setting for romance!

    And i just saw tree episodes of Maria Sama Ga Miteru and i defently want to see al episodes of this Anime, it seems to me that it wil have an intresing storyline.

    I also saw some other Anime in this genre and i think some of the are prety good.

    Do I like them? Not really, I don't watch them....Do I think they are right? They are certainly not wrong, anime should appeal to all people....
