 So female fans generally consider George to be an "effeminate", rather than a "bishounen"? Oh my, this
is getting a little more complex... I'm kinda confused.
Okay, if you don't mind, can you classify the following
characters as bishonen, effeminate, or otherwise? ^_^;
From the girls' point of view of course...

1) Wufei Chang (GW)
2) Fao Lafine (B't X)
3) Shishin Daikakuya (Rai)
4) Alwin Dorstien (Super Robot Taisen)
5) Trunks (Dragonball Z)
6) Yaten Kou (Sailorstars -anime-)
7) Kurama (Yuu Yuu Hakusho)
8) Youko Kurama (Yuu Yuu Hakusho)
9) Tokiya (Flame of Recca)
10) Aya/Ran (Weiss Kreuz)
11) Alucard (Dracula X)
12) Kojiro Sasaki (Yaiba)
13) Kaworu Nagisa (Evangelion)
