Universal Appeal

In addition to the constantly changing Daily Rankings list, Pixiv has links in the sidebar for the most popular images among male and female users respectively. I looked through both of them this morning, and, as expected, there was almost no overlap. There was some however. In the first 300 images, the following pictures were in both lists.  (Below the fold because, some are NSFW.)

source: Artist's blog is here.

source: Support them on Pixiv Fanbox here.


source: The artist's blog is here. Support them on Pixiv Fanbox here and buy their merch here and here.


source: Fuzichoco's website is here and her BOOTH page is here

source: Her Tumblr is here and you can support Fukahire(?) on Pixiv Fanbox here and buy her circle's merch here.


source: Support him on Pixiv Fanbox here.

source: Ameoke's web page is here. You can support her on Pixiv Fanbox here and buy her stuff on Kindle here.


source His website is here and his mostly NSFW merch can be bought here.

source: Support on Pixiv Fanbox here and since Neco's breaking into the model business you can buy the above character in 3-D here. 



So what can we glean from this?
Well, obviously men and women agree that Rem is 'Best Oni'.
Also: Looking at that last picture, large percentages of both sexes share a hobbyist's interest in the intricacies of lace embroidery as well as the practical application of spirit gum.

1 I never watched Re:Zero, but there's so much damned fan art, perhaps I erred.

3 It's pretty good.

Make sure to watch episode 1A.  I didn't realise the first episode had two parts and jumped right into 1B where the media was very much in res.

4 Mauser, it's very good but it is NOT what all the RemArt makes you think it is.  There are some ugly, ugly times ahead if you watch.  EXCELLENTLY WRITTEN and highly recommended ugly ugly times, but still.
If you think you'll be turned off by Steven's rule of dead girls, don't watch.

5 It all depends on if the Den Beste Rule is broken gratuitously (Muv-Luv Alternative) or misogynisticly (Euphoria), or if there's actually a valid plot point and a story that comes out of it. Personally I'm a total sucker for heroic self-sacrifice (even cheese like Armageddon will get me). Although seeing a female character in that role is very rare.

6 @ Mauser,  I don't think it's a huge spoiler (except maybe for the first ep or 2) that the main male protagonist resets to a save point when he dies.  This is taken to it's full, brutal, psychological conclusions.  Hobbs gets it very right here.  It's very well done, but it will bring you through the emotional ringer.
As for female self-sacrifice, all I'll say is that there are reasons why Rem can win Best Waifu awards even from people who don't normally gravitate to characters that young.
