How many girls would actually sit down at a computer and search for a website that allows one to download these movies and dramas?
On another note, the only reason I learned about BT was through downloading anime. And it's pretty obvious to me that most anime are intended for a male audience. For example, DBZ, Love Hina, Gundam are three anime from different genre that were probably made for guys.
That's my 2 cent for my first pointless forum post,
I would like to disagree on your comment that girls do not watch anime. That's what shoujo anime are for! Although there are some 'guy animes' there are an equal number of 'girl animes'... Off the top of my head, I've watched Cardcaptor Sakura, X/1999, Scrapped Princess, Rurouni Kenshin, Naruto (disputably a guy anime, but I love it). To be quite honest, from what I've
seen, most animes tend to be aimed at a wide audience, often overlapping girl's and guy's tastes.
Plus, I always thought girls were supposedly to be more into "soaps" than guys.
As pointed out by our poll that this is not the case, I still think your comment, "how many girls would actually sit down at a computer and search for a website that allows one to download.." is invalid. Although it seems that guys are in the majority on d-addicts, girls definitely do hold a significant percentage, don't you think? By doubting that girls would visit websites to search for dramas... I find that slightly offensive because isn't that an implication that we're computer illiterate? I didn't know much skill was required to browse through websites and search for things.....
Hrmm.... my friends always say I'm overly sensitive when it comes to sexist issues.....
