Here is the list of titles that I observed being purchased by girls/women for their own enjoyment at the comic store I work at for last week. As always, stuff women were purchasing for boyfriends/sons/husbands is not included.

Fewer DVDs this time, more comics. Still interesting data, though I have no idea what to do with it. I think the whole vague idea of proving that there's no predictable way to say "women only buy this kind of thing, period!" has pretty much been done. I mean, the stuff the women buy in the store I work at has been all over the map- and often they buy things (and are quite passionate about said things!) that are aimed squarely at a male audience. They also seem to like to buy sexy stuff- and not just yaoi, I mean sexy stuff with hot chicks in tiny outfits. It happens all the time. (It seems to be fairly prevalent in anime fandom as well, shows that are packed to the gills with sexy girls get rented by women all the time.) I'll probably keep logging this stuff though, just because I am a little OCD.

In other stuff, there's been no time for LJ posting between day job work, Radio work and my favorite, house work. Alas!

A very light week this week, but from what I am told, the last two weeks of October are traditionally the slowest sales weeks of the year.

Lots of DVDs this week, as well as standard comics instead of manga. I'm still finding this gathering of information interesting, as I am only proving my theory that there is no "magic bullet" as to what women/girls will like in nerd media, they are all over the map, taste-wise. ^_^

A big manga week this week, and most of them yaoi titles. Which is completely unsurprising. ^_^

This was a short week for me, since I was only on the schedule for four instead of my usual five days (what with the getting courthouse-married and all...) Still, here is the list of titles that I observed being purchased by girls/women for their own enjoyment at the comic store I work at. This week's list is smaller, as we had fewer female customers on the shifts I worked. Since it's so small this week, it's not in a cut.

Comics/graphic novels:
Stephen King's Dark Tower: Treachery

Manga/manhwa:
Goth
Black Jack
Disgaea 2
Full Metal Panic
Rosario+Vampire

Misc:
RPG dice

We also had a pair of girls come in to get a birthday present for one of their boyfriends- they bought a Wanted graphic novel and some Magic: The Gathering cards. But since they weren't buying these things for themselves, I didn't include them in this week's listing.

As I mentioned in one of my previous posts, I am doing rather lackadaisical low key "research" into what women and girls buy for themselves in the comic/gaming/anime store I work at for my day job. ("Research" because it consists of me paying attention to sales and writing the stuff down in a little book.) I decided to do this because there seems to be so much talk online about "comics for girls" and "what girls want to read" and all that, and no one seemed to actually be looking at what girls/women buy in comics stores. So, it got me wondering. Also, my personal experiences of liking things only boys are supposed to like (comics, video games, using random quotes from movies out of context, etc.) made me wonder if there was any way you could accurately pin down "what all women want" when it comes to media or entertainment. So, this list was born. (And no, I don't think there is one easy answer for "what all women want", because women, like men, are individuals with their own personal tastes. The sooner people realize that, the better.)

I am only counting things that I see being bought on my actual shifts when I am working and I am only counting things that girls and women are buying for their own personal enjoyment/use. (Not counting stuff they get for boyfriends, husbands, sons, etc.) Sound fair? Okay, here's the list of titles for this week in the cut:
