I'm the same way, I don't have any particular bias for any genre, it just so happens that, as of late, few Shonen have caught my eye- which leads me into something else.

I really think that the "Shonen" and "Shoujo" genres should be renamed. Partially because it sort of labels interests to the sexes, but also because it creates bias among the consumers. I don't have too much of a problem with it, but when my friends don't watch an anime because it has "Shoujo" in the genres category, which is a little "macho" if you ask me. I mean, it makes sense when you consider that the two mean "boy" and "girl" respectively, but...well, that's kinda the problem. It's almost as if those labels are trying to dictate who buys them.
