All of sudden I feel very lucky because I have no idea who these charas are (I think I know number 8, is the girl from Samurai X?)
I loled because of the square that says "main cast of vampire knight". I totally agreed!

I don't watch/read shoujo so maybe that's because.

Brera Cute!

omg there's that word 'shoujo' again. I can't seem to get away from it. I don't classify anything i watch in terms like that. I may have to look up the word for 'Day 20' because if Uraboku is "shoujo" then i've really got no clue what 'shoujo' is. (@__@)

Well, since I don't really like shoujo and shonen, I use the demographics to help me to choose what I'm going to watch. Sometimes it's not helpful but usually works to avoid animes that I would probably detest.
And yes, Uraboku is shoujo LOL
It's my choice for "day 20" too =)
But obviously the author choose to write a "shoujo" story to have multiple demographics appeal and sell more. There is too much yaoi fanservice for a traditional shoujo story (even the main shoujo heroine was replaced for a guy!). Several places marks the demographic as shounen-ai.

Hotsuma burn

really? I mainly pick by the cast XD Or my genres (sci-fi, horror, fantasy, supernatural, etc) Or a combo of genre and seiyuu >___>''' I sure didn't pick the sports ones because they were sports related lol

A demographic means that the author will follow some standards and tropes pertinent to that style. This means that a shoujo that is about supernatural will have a young moe heroine and will be focused in love sugary relationship; a seinen that is about supernatural will be focused in adventure and friendship between adult males and will have a serious narrative tone; a shonen that is about supernatural will be more light than a seinen, less violent, adventurous and will have younger charas.
That's why demographics are important to help you to choose :)

It compensates because helps you to not waste time watching something that you will hate or drop. ;)

Shoujo means for girls/teens so a story (any type but of course over the years what's typical has been ingrained into fans like Sailor Moon or Fushigi Yuugi or Card Captor Sakura) where the primary audience is girls/teens.

But I still don't think it applies well to Uraboku (even though it does ~_~).

Definitely gotta agree with most of the ones I recognize.

But no love for Soma? (Or are you referring to Marie?)

why are things so pricey? :/

Allen ponder

Tapestry prices are even worse. B2 promo posters if really hot will go for that much or more.
Small quantity made only maybe means higher price? Being cloth could actually wash it if got it stained/dirty.

T-shirt prices are nuts. 2500Yen is cheap.
R2 DVDs always much more than R1 DVDs.
List goes on :/
