* ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' is an old Shonen anime involving KiAttacks, aliens, evil space overlords, and the occasional dinosaur. It has gained a massive American fanbase of women and girls from the ages of 14-25. This probably has something to do with the huge bulging muscles.

* Trigun (Shonen) and Trigun Maximum (Seinen) is very popular with [[YaoiFangirl fujoshi]] over in Japan. Most doujinshi, and fan art on Pixiv and artists' personal sites, are either yaoi or a "cute guys doing cute and funny things" type deal.

* ''Manga/{{Kanokon}}'', a very racy seinen/ecchi series, actually was pulled from free Japanese streaming due to this trope. Particularly, a Japanese news outlet reported that according to statistics from a video service, full episodes of ''Kanokon'' were the most popular videos with '''elementary school''' aged boys and girls.

* ''Anime/KemonoFriends'' aired at OtakuOClock, but the director, who had previously worked on shows aimed at children, decided to keep the show suitable for kids (who would presumably be watching it via streaming rather than in the late night timeslot).

* ''Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt'' has a rather significant female fanbase, despite it very obviously pandering to guys. [[EvenTheGirlsWantHer Even The Girls Want Panty And Stocking]] (and [[EvilIsSexy Scanty and Kneesocks]])? [[{{Adorkable}} Brief]] may have something to with this, too; and maybe [[BadassPreacher Garterbelt]]. Or maybe it's seeing someone do [[WishFulfillment what they wish they could do]]. And Panty's [[WorldOfCardboardSpeech "I'm just a bitch" speech]] ''was'' inspiring.
** Panty and Stocking are seen as good feminist icons by some, because they're both badass without falling into the "we can't portray any females with flaws, lest it be a bad representation of women" cliche, they're badass, they never have to be saved by men, and Panty's obsession with sex is only portrayed as bad because it gets in the way of her work (and because she has terrible taste in men), not because sex ''itself'' is inherently bad. Panty and Stocking are also sisters who worry about each other, and enjoy hanging out with each other.

** It also has a surprising EstrogenBrigade despite its RatedMForManly status. It's especially noticeable with female [[IdolSinger Idol Singers]], including an interview with Creator/HirohikoAraki himself conducted by Shoko Nakagawa.

* This is hugely influential in anime/manga as they are today, since it led to the creation of genres such "[[ImprobablyFemaleCast the all female cast]]," "magical girlfriend," and even "harem" (which accounts for more 70-80% of all anime/manga today). A large female cast and the "Magical Girl" genre were originally meant to appeal to girls, giving them characters to relate to, but companies soon found out that there was a large young-adult to middle age virgin men demographics who got off on this kind of stuff. The ''Franchise/SailorMoon'' and ''Franchise/PrettyCure'' series are two of the most influential.
