    The Army accepts people of all gender.

    (Sakura and Gaara?! WTF? I admit that I don't like Naruto and Hinata, though, but at the point where I am in the manga... is that canon now? I hate it. >_>)

    Shounen yay. And the boys look like boys, not girls, that's good.

    I have to admit I hate the girls-look like boys thing. (Also I hate the whole all-about romance thing. Especially in like Zettai Kareshi. I wanted more awesome-androidness and less pure stupid romance. (Upon other things))

    Also I like Shounen better than Shoujo too Digi. It just means wer'e not girl-girls. (I got that way because my brother. My first anime was Dragon Ball Z. Also it's hilarious but I only started reading manga for the first time in my life in the middle or late of last year. It was Naruto too. It's because my family doesn't like it and i'm barred from buying it even with my own money.)

    (You mean, boys looking like girls in shoujo manga? Or...)

    (Zettai Kareshi wasn't bad. I also wanted more android-awesomeness, though.)

    Girly-girls? T_T But I am so... I like pink and wear dresses and skirts and stuff like that... I think it just means we prefer good stories where more realistic things happen. The characters and situations in shounen series are realistic... for their setting. You don't expect to see that kind of thing every day, but that's what a real fantasy adventure would be like. Typical shoujo romances are just completely unrealistic.

    My first anime was Sailor Moon, but that's special and world-saving. :3

    Wow... one of three guys? Heh, makes me wonder a bit there. Although it really doesn't suprise me that much at the same time too. Story is good, artwork shows a slight sillyness to the storyline, but keeps you interested, and well the main charactor is interesting. I can stand a lot of bad stuff as long as the main charactor is interesting (I don't think DGM is bad, but will freely admidt to reading bad stuff b/c I liked the main charactor). Don't remember what my first anime was... I think it was something like 3x3 eyes. Oh and about the Anti Yaoi Army, go ahead and sign me up.

    No, there are more than three guys here. =P We fangirls usually outnumber them, though. Still, recently I haven't seen some of us around...

    DGM is a really great manga, and I have to admit that I kind of like the fact that Allen has got to be one of the only protagonists who gets beaten up numerous times in the SECOND CHAPTER (and in nearly every fight after that). Poor guy. And he's the protagonist, too. ^^;;

    ...yeah, for example Kolox-kun, DE-sama's favourite argumentation-partner, ne?

    Allen is a rather unusual protagonist (more unusual would be Edward Elric). He's the typical, a bit dense, strong main character, but still has enough weak points and still loses fights. (Edward is a genius, very unusual for a protagonist)

    Yeah... Kolox, Reinard (who is currently away), Sherman, MGS... some other guys... I talk to Dante about DGM on IRC although I don't see him talk here a lot...

    How is Allen less unusual than Edward?! Edward doesn't require help in every single fight except the defining ones as a protagonist! =P Okay, he is a genius, but he acts just as dumb as other protagonists when socializing and all (and there are other specialized intelligent main characters in manga too, like Ryoma from Prince of Tennis or Azuma from Yakitate!! Japan). Allen, I think, is more unusual for not really standing out in any way, and not being among the stupidest characters in the manga.

    I'm actually surprised we don't have more males in the army. A lot of guys I know are adamant about not having anything to do with yaoi and it's many forms.

    You guys are beating up on poor Allen. XD You'll hurt his feelings. Besides we have Lavi who lets face it, although he isn't a genius when it comes to humans, he does remember everything he ever read or heard about. (If I did that, I'd be a genius too) But Hoshino states that Rinari is the smartest, but I haven't really seen her be all that smart. I mean she's emotional and caring and promises to help friends and works things out, but I haven't really seen her work anything out. She's definately the smartest about humans but I haven't had a chance to see much else.

    I'm a bit surprised too, but maybe it's just because we have stronger opinions about that, and about things in general, and we have more support for other pairings? Maybe the guys just don't care.

    Rinari was the only one to remember Road's door after she died. xD Allen and Rabi were too busy fighting each other to think about it. I think she's just more logical about those kinds of things (and in general; she's related to Komui, who IS a genius, even if he doesn't act that way). Lavi has an amazing memory, but he's more like Komui... stupid in other ways. xD Still, none of them are the protagonist. (I'm not beating up on Allen - everyone else in DGM did that! =P)

    About guys and lack of activity- it's not that I don't care, it's just that I have literally nothing to contribute. I don't even know what to think yet about the whole situation or any conspiracy theories. And if I ever come up with something, the chances are it's already been come up with and dissected by someone here (normally DE).
    'No need to take me seriously. It's a forum.'

    I <3 the Village People. Everyone wants be a macho man. And join the Navy. And stay at the YMCA.

    <Viraten> It's better than Naruto
    <Chiza> Most things are.
