* ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'' originally started out as a boys' alternative to Tamagotchi, but over the years has gained a massive teenage and adult fanbase of both genders, thanks to the anime's strong and clever writing. [[Anime/DigimonTamers Tamers]] is a common fan favorite among this audience due to its [[DarkerAndEdgier darker and edgier]] storyline.

* ''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).

This demographic became so prominent that a reairing of the show starting from August 2017 put it directly in an early morning timeslot aimed at children.

* Since it's been out of style with little kids since about 2004, ''Anime/YuGiOh'''s current fandom is composed almost entirely of teenage girls. In the anime -- the [[TabletopGame/YuGiOh Card Game]] however are chock full of boys and men [[SeriousBusiness bickering on effects, spell speeds and priority]]. It's a good bet that most of the current ''YGO'' fanbase consists of fans of the AbridgedSeries.

** The Anime/YuGiOh anime and its spinoffs has also drawn
a good bet large fandom of teenagers and young adults for its surprisingly complex and layered storytelling that younger audiences may not be able to grasp. Since statistically, men tend to focus on the technical aspects of a franchise and women tend to focus on the emotional/literary aspects of a franchise, this is where most of the current ''YGO'' "teenage girl" fanbase consists tends to end up. (The same could probably be said for a lot of fans of the AbridgedSeries.examples on this page.)

* ''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.
