Chooser version 58


Added 80 images from the new season of Fairy Tail. Total is now 4766.

UPDATE: Fairy Tail is the largest contributor to the top rotation, with 359 (as of this update). But it's still only 7.5%.

For people who are fans of the show, have you noticed that there isn't any yuri in Fairy Tail? None at all that I remember.

2 I don't think it's just Fairy Tail. I can't remember any of that in any of the big shounen series. Even ones that would do gay jokes wouldn't go there. Or am I just forgetting an example here?

3 Not really.  The only show I can think of that has both a Tournament Arc and a yuri couple is Negima (Konoka/Setsuna), and that's not a "big shounen series."  Welterweight, perhaps.

4 Does Strike Witches count as Shonen? Because there are between 1 and 3 yuri couples depending on how you count: Eila/Sanya (for sure), Shirley/Francesca (maybe?) and Wilcke/Sakamoto (maybe?)

5 Does forlorn love count? GIrls und Panzer I think is definitely Shonen (if I understand the term correctly, which is by no means certain) and Yukari's attraction to Miho seems to be more than just hero worship. No indication whatever that Miho returns it, of course.

6 No indication whatever that Miho returns it, of course.

A girl and her tank...

7 I need to learn how to spell "shounen". Sorry about that.

8 Avatar, does Honshō Chizuru from Bleach count? (also, red half-rims...)

9 That's two counter-examples then, so yeah, I cede the point. I'll admit that I was thinking "flagship title for one of the big magazines", Naruto, DBZ, One Piece, etc., but Bleach was one of those without question, and Chizuru isn't an arguable edge case. (Head case, oh yeah. But not an edge case.) I think it's fair to put Fairy Tail in this category.

I wouldn't count either Strike Witches or GuP because they're pretty clearly aimed at the otaku crowd, while the flagship titles are aimed at a younger set generally, which was along the lines of my thinking there.

Of course there's an entirely different set of shounen shows which are packed full of as much sex humor as they can cram in...

Honestly, I'm not one to be too picky about the details of romanization - "shonen" and "shounen" both work fine for me. I'm not going to put the accent mark to show a long O, though.
