I don’t understand…

Why are the sites for eroges always so…… feminine?

This game happens to be Mashiro iro symphony, a game that caught my attention because of its gorgeous art (the main artist also did some character designs for Akane iro ni Somaru Saka).

  1. I don’t think it’s because girls are the target audience. (surprise surprise) The goal in the game is to woo the girls, it’s not an FPS. Therefore it’s pink and fluffy. I also think it looks more friendly to the shy male otaku, to make them feel in control so to speak. Even the background in my avatar is pink, but that’s just because I thought it was funny. 😛

  2. I reckon every man has a feminine side, and moe-ism brings that out. Having said that, I won’t lie – I don’t feel comfortable carrying pink boxes around in public.

  3. @Chucky: That does made a lot of sense… (I meant the whole thing involving the sites, not your avatar, I still don’t get that)

    @m12 and The Animanachronism: Now that I think about it, eroges generally feel very feminine, with those gushy and romantic stories that seems to be written for girls. The weird thing is that more feminine guys aren’t as accepted by other guys, even though they seem to always have close female friends. Does his reflect the male need for female contact? Hmm…

    @m3rryweather: I’m NOT saying that I perfer a different layout, in fact, I like the adorableness of this site. Before you start getting strange impressions of me, I’m a girl, okay?

  4. @Choux: I was messing around with faceyourmanga.com and I just thought it was funny to use an odd avatar for a couple of days. I changed it to my normal (well, if you can call a cartoon cat normal) avatar from Chi’s Sweet Home. Chi rocks.

    @Kairu Ishimaru: High Five!

    @The Sojourner: That’s just creepy. Partly because you’re pedobear. 😛
