"In the city of my birth, I had a dream..."
Guess who's having a late-night epistemological crisis? T_T

Do I actually "know" what I think I do?

Okay, reality check: In your opinion, does this version of Magneto as shown above best belong in a shoujo manga or a shounen one?

Could be both.

How can you tell? (For a lengthy explanation, leave a comment to this entry.)

Gosh, I don't know. I might have to go with shoujo because of the willowy waist, jewelled armour, and the feel of the face. Maybe also the twiggy arms and the sketchiness of the lines.

Hee, it's actually bringing back flashbacks of a misspent youth in the Harry Potter fandom, where you couldn't turn around with bumping into a fanart of a silver-haired Draco Malfoy posed dramatically on something.

*grins* Silver-haired bishounen are a manga cliché.

I look at that and I don't see Magneto--I see countless other parody game designs that scream: 'gender ambiguous angst-kun is angsty.'

a.k.a. Devil May Cry yaoi? ^^;;;

I actually thought it was a prettified Dante before I read the post.

Looks like a character out of a BL title to me. :3 If it's for a shounen title I will weep.

Oh wow! Whatever comic or manga that's from, I want one! XD

I'd say shoujo.

Two vol. series slated for 2009. No guarantee at this point if he'll be in the manga at all, though.

By 2009 I'll forget about it XD

I won't, though. :P
