An elemental workshop.

A series packed full of feminine males and a single immensely attractive female, Karneval, has been confirmed to be receiving an animation – instantly becoming the most stereotypical anime upcoming.

As most of us surely have noticed already, this is a shoujo anime, originating from a shoujo manga – and no, that doesn’t mean it’s littered with girls, rather, it’s made for them. And apparently, there’s nothing that girls love more than overly feminine males who dress in vivacious sparkly outfits and look to have exuberant homoerotic sides to them. The sight is akin to acid on the eyes, however one can at least find salvation in the rather sexy lone female of the series. Unless it turns out she’s a crossdresser…

    “And apparently, there’s nothing that girls love more than overly feminine males who dress in vivacious sparkly outfits and look to have exuberant homoerotic sides to them.” – And I can’t understand them. Seriously, I strongly dislike that type of character designs, let alone the homoerotic tones. Badass guys are way more attractive to me…
    That said, I’m almost sure I’m gonna pass on this one.

      This series is probably aimed at fujoshis – I’m sarcastic when I say girls like it. I’m sure the character designs come off as ridiculous to anyone.

      This is like the female targeted equivalent of Queen’s Blade.

    ” however one can at least find salvation in the rather sexy lone female of the series. Unless it turns out she’s a crossdresser…” that made me laugh a lot but to be honest the design really calls my attention and even though i dont know what this Karneval anime is about im most likely gonna give it a try

    I really do like the artwork. Can’t say much about the series, though, considering I don’t even know what it’s really about.

    • Seven says:

      It’s about some homoerotic guys who run a three-ring circus that serves as a private military contractor group.

    This actual a really great manga. I believe that, yes it turns toward mostly girls, but just because the author decided to make it more colorful doesn’t mean that they look like homoerotic males. And if you actually read the manga then you’d know that their are more females, and a lot more interesting characters then Yogi, Nai, Gareki, and Tsukumo.
    Anyways, The artwork to this series is beautiful, and detailed. Each character has their own traits that help define them, and the imagination is shown is the work is absolutely wonderful!

      I’m sure it has its own audience – this series is serialized in Comic Zero Sum, the same which Amatsuki features in, and while Amatsuki is often labeled a josei or shoujo series, I love it dearly.

      • Seven says:

        I should mention though, the “homoerotic” qualities come from their clearly feminine dispositions and other traits of their outfits.

        Take a look at image #004 for instance – it looks like he’s more into shota than lolis.

    the main plot of this manga is that a boy is trying to find his….brother(?) and it just follows his journey really :| but the amazing plot twist and art style make this a really nice manga to read :3 i can’t wait to see and anime for this one :D i just hope they don’t change the plot too much when the animators get a hold of it :\

    • Seven says:

      “and it just follows his journey really”

      There’s just a few homoerotic twists here and there, as well as some rainbow essence, but it’s a totally average adventure.

    Karneval is a shoujo manga?! It’s a bit violent for a shoujo…
    xD I really hope nobody finds out about the anime when it comes out, personally I want it to stay us fan’s little secret…sad, I remember when Ao No Exorcist became stereotypical and now I cry…

    • Seven says:

      I find it amusing the only ones who question whether or not Karneval is a shoujo manga are the audience it is intended for.

      And yes, it is a self-recognized shoujo manga serialized in a shoujo magazine.

    For some reason I saw no homoerotic-ness in the manga. Maybe I wasn’t reading clearly? I thought it was a great read and usually I’m picky about the art in mangas but this one’s art was really eye catching.

  • Anonymous says:

    I thought this manga had a great plot, same with the art!! :3 I just can’t wait to see If the manga is like the anime!!(≧∇≦)

    Who cares if it has homoerotic sides? As long as it has a nice plot and good characters, then to hell with its genre/s.

    • gargamesh says:

      Correction, as long as the homo-eroticness does not overpower it’s plot.

      Examples are shows like Kuroko no Basuke, Hakuoki and Cuticle Tantei.
