It also says there were 154 (21%) female-oriented titles for Vocaloid, 265 (49%) for Haruhi, and 139 (70%) for Macross. Not sure why there’s nothing given for the rest – there’s also no “other” number, and obviously yaoi titles seem to go to other stores, so this isn’t really a complete picture of the otaku world.
I kind of want to know what’s in the other 7 Queen’s Blade titles…

    >155 9 6% Maria-sama ga Miteru

    >Maria-sama ga Miteru (マリア様がみてる?, lit. The Virgin Mary is Watching or Maria Watches Over Us), often shortened to Marimite (マリみて?),[3] is a series of Japanese light novels written by Oyuki Konno, and illustrated by Reine Hibiki. The series focuses on a group of teenage girls attending Lillian Catholic school for girls in Tokyo, Japan.

    6 percent? Really?

    Marimite has always been the champion of not being porn.

    I’m a little surprised it’s still so far ahead of Touhou, though. I think it had a bit more porn when it was more mainstream popular, though.

  3. NTG says:

    I’ve bizzarely seen quite a bit of Marimite porn, ranging from a great plot-driven series about Sei as a demon hunter to one where somebody’s brother gets all the girls drunk on brandy.

    Wouldn’t “female-oriented” titles be the yaoi ones? Which explains why there’s nothing for, say, Little Busters or Lucky Star.

    Also, I imagine the other 7 Queen’s Blade titles are 4-coma.

  4. jpmeyer says:

    So if you include Touhou, only 37% of the doujins are porn, but if you exclude Touhou, it goes up to 54% being porn.

  5. Clarissa says:

    NTG, not really. In addition to comedy and general books targeted to females, there’s a decent bit of both explicit and non-explicit straight romance doujin for women. I’ve never been able to get at actual stats to figure out how many or what percentage of the market, but they definitely exist.

    Looking at the titles and knowing the Tora-no-ana store, this is only the guy’s segment of Tora-no-ana. The Tora-no-ana branch in Akiba has 2 whole buildings, both are 6 or so floors of selling space. 3-4 are for guys doujinshi, 3-4 are for girls doujinshi, and the rest are other genres of doujin, such as music, games, merch, etc. There’s also a floor that’s a cafe.
    Except, last time I went, that floor also turned into a Touhou merch selling floor, no more coffee.

    The way you can tell this does not include any girls oriented shows is the lack of:
    Other Sunrise
    Any other jump

    It mentions Vocaloid, Haruhi, and Macross specially probably because those franchises’ fanbases span both genders.
