i don't really pay attention to "genre" labels

someone told me: 'you watch a lot of shojo' once, and i was: 'i what?' (completely took it as an insult, YES I DID)
blue also responded saying ' don't think she watches that much shojo. XD'  <--- which is so true.. except now i'm finding out series that are mainly male casts are suddenly labeled as shoujo too, not just sailormoon types...

anyways this isn't a label that i use. To me Uraboku is a supernatural series. (demons = supernatural)
Gundam = sci-fi
erementar gerad = fantasy

no it's your imagination... i'm not just using Ishida Akira series as examples... well okay it's fact, but i was unaware until i finished typing 'gerad'

Pretty sure the only reason Uraboku is considered shoujo is because of the magazine it runs in.

Kuroshitsuji ☆ Madam Red - Are?

Uraboku is published in a shoujo magazine, drawn by a mangaka who illustrates BL novels etc. Pretty obvious why most ppl consider it "shoujo"
Wait wasn't Erementar Gerad shounen? Meh, Mag Garden publications confuse my labels anyway but I didn't see anything especially "shoujo" in it.

Uraboku is pretty loose when it comes to genres, but I think "supernatural" is a nice term.

I think Uraboku would go a lot further with the slash if it was in a different magazine, but it does well under the shoujo label and I can't really say I'm really missing anything when it comes to couples ^^

Haha, wasn't it Marth who said that about the song guessing contest? (Which reminds me that I should finish that...)

I don't really think about genre labels, either, especially since shows can be categorized differently depending on who you talk to. I like what I like, and that's it. No need to waste time on labels. XD
