* ''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.

Added DiffLines:

** 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.

* [[OlderThanTheyThink Predating]] [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyAndFriends G1 My Little Pony]], ''[[Anime/HeidiGirlOfTheAlps Heidi, Girl of the Alps]]'' had quite the boy fanbases [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff in many countries, especially Germany and Italy]], partly due to the adorable, [[SugarWiki/GushingAboutCharactersYouLike lovable]] little Heidi herself, as well as things like focusing on gender-netural (or made gender-netural, in the show itself) topics, like conformity, friendship, nature, town and city buisness and so forth.

* ''Anime/YuriOnIce'' has a large following of YaoiFangirls. Due to the relationship between Yuri and Victor taking several romantic undertones, culminating in [[spoiler:their kiss and becoming the show's OfficialCouple]], it also gathered a large LGBTFanbase. There are also a lot of straight guys that do enjoy the show [[spoiler:likely due to how it portrays a romance between the two male leads without relying on BoysLoveTropes]], making the series one of the few attracting a very diverse audience.

* ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' is a weird example in that (possibly because of [[Creator/StudioGainax production team]] and copious amounts of FanService and [[FreudWasRight suspiciously sexual things]]) a large number of people don't even ''realize'' that it was [[{{Shonen}} targeted to a younger audience]] with an early Sunday timeslot. There's also the fact that the American broadcast ''wasn't'' as it aired at 11 PM Pacific time on Mondays and the dub had a moderate amount of profanity.

* Likewise, in a similar vein with "the all female cast," the same applies with "all male cast." Many of the "all male cast" anime were originally meant for teenage male audiences from various Magazine/ShonenJump titles such as ''Manga/DragonballZ'', ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', and ''Manga/{{Bleach}}''. However, with the introduction of shoujo titles such as ''Manga/FruitsBasket'' and ''Manga/OuranHighSchoolHostClub'' sets the standard of any anime with a CastFullOfPrettyBoys is generally geared towards a female audience. Unlike the "all female cast" example above, the "all male cast" example is zigzagged, as anime featuring a CastFullOfPrettyBoys ''still'' manage to attract the male audience like most shounen titles (with ''Anime/{{Free}}'' being the best example).
