stupid question :D  
This is kinda a stupid question,but whatever lol, me and my friend were talking about this and I was just wondering what y'all thought. Do y'all think that there is more girl FMA fans or boy FMA fans? Me an my friend decided that there is probably more girls, but thats just what we thought....

...considering the large population of yaoi fangirls...

I'd say girls, though I'd say there's a healthy population of Roy-loving guys out there. With the excpetion of my boyfriend, who thinks he's an asshole, most of my guy friends, and guys I have met at cons like Roy best.

...I wonder if it's the shared love of miniskirts! XD

Mostly it's the sentiment of "Roy's a pimp!"

He really IS a pimp. :D

I'm very sure most of the hardcore fans (no pun intended) are girls, but there are lots of casual male and female fans. :3

well, I'm of the opinion that EVERYONE is an fma fan at heart (some of them just don't know it yet.) So the real question, what are there more of in the world, boys or girls?

My Japanese friend says that Hagaren's mostly a girl thing over in Japan and the guys there are so-so.

Well, from what I've seen, the majority of fans are girls, and most of those are OBSESSED with the series. But then again, there's a large amount of guy fans out there, too. All I hear from guys that have watched the series is that, "Whoa! That series is cool. There's that dude with the metal arm, and that ROBOT dude!!" Sooo, not to be stereotypical, but most of the guys watch it for the violence, when the girls are actually concered with the storyline. o_o;

I'll have to say girls. Or at least, the internet vocal ones are.

I think it might have to reflect in the manga-ka... I remembered that the Inuyasha and Ranma 1/2 fan communities were mostly girls, and the manga-ka for those two was a woman. Also applies to FMA perhaps, with Arakawa-sensei being a woman.

You can most obviously define a fan-board's gender majority by the topics posted.

Girl dominated communities have an abundance of fans of a certain pairing, or discussion of in-depth plot meanings.

Guys prefer to gab about "Who's hottest?", "Who's strongest?", "Who would win vs. Who?", or "Which female character would you want as your girlfriend?"

I think a lot more girls like it, to tell the truth, especially in Japan. The reason for Japanese girls liking it so much may have to do with the "pure love" between Ed and Al (and that's not meant in a romantic sense at all, actually, but literally as a pure love). Paku Romi mentioned something about it once in an interview. Japanese girls are utterly obsessed with pure love and Ed and Al are a VERY good example of this.

I think you see the more hardcore guy fans at conventions. A real FMA man isn't afraid to cosplay. XD

But then a real FMA girl will love and obsess over cosplay... so they eventually overwhelm the real FMA guys. XD

Hmmm... that's true...
