Most entertaining Periphery Demographic?:

Cure Candy
Most entertaining Periphery demographics or Multiple Demographic Appeal

I came across this vid here

The demographics on it are
  • Gender Age
  • Female 13-17
  • Male 35-44
  • Male 45-54

Then there was this recent Yahoo Answers (Japan)
“My husband is secretly recording Precure in his room… it’s so gross I’m in my room crying!

He doesn’t seem to realise I know yet and still tells me he loves me, but I can’t help but think he prefers little girls to me and is some kind of lolicon! How can I recover from this…

About him: he’s 26 and admits to liking Kamen Rider and American comics. I’m really shocked, I thought he had no hobbies.”

The “best answer”:

“What does it matter what interest your husband has if it isn’t causing bother to you?

My friend’s husband is in his late forties and is a huge Kamen rider fan – he spent $500 on a henshin belt. We all found that pretty cute!

Another friend’s husband is a huge Pokemon fan and still buys Pokemon games and goods.

I know another who is a shoujo manga otaku – it seems Precure has lots of cute girls and is popular with anime otaku.

He’s probably not even a lolicon, he probably just loves 2D girls in a pure sort of way.

However old they are, men are still boys at heart. That’s just how they are, although of course there are those who aren’t, but let’s forgive them their hobbies!

Would you rather a husband obsessed with fishing who went off with his pals each and every weekend to catch fish? He’d live for fishing, not for you.

If it’s not getting in the way of family life, you should leave it at that.

By the way, I’m a “Harlequin” [a popular publisher of romance novels] otaku myself, and at first I hid that from my husband, but now I just read them openly.

It doesn’t bother anyone and I’ve no intention of giving it up.”

Responce
“Everyone, thanks for your answers!

I watched Heartcatch Precure with my husband, and I’m hooked…

Erika is cute!”

Then there was a news story * about parents complaining that guys were going to their kids movie even though said movie pretty much looked like this

In all the whole thing has me laughing my ass off.

At least for me, that the internet's hive of scum and villainy finds enjoyment in My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, and it's not of the "let's see how much we can corrupt this goody two-shoe bullshit" variety, is pretty amusing.

I've been waiting for a chance to share this article and thank-you for giving me one.

[up][up] Huh, couldn't tell judging from most of the fanart.

^ A lot, yeah, but not "most" unless limiting it solely to 4chan's output, where at times I don't think they are physically capable of not pornifying or otherwise vulgaring-up custom-made images. tongue

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
