Mine was first 65 percent... But then I thought "No wait, that can't be ö__o" and saw I had a few of my male figures untagged. When I was done tagging, I ended with 80 percent over 112 figures...

Much better~ ♥

the majority of my figure collection is being shipped right now (recently started collecting), but going by what i've ordered & paid for, ~80% male. my original goal was to only collect male figures to save $$, but i gave in to BRS (original ver, anime ver, figma, nendos) so that ruined my plan & upped the female % a lot.

According to MFC's bonus trivia, 88% of my collection are boys. ^__^ I never realized how many boys were in my collection~

71%.. dammit.. used to be almost 90% but because of misc stuff and artbooks.. it got lower.

Female are 14%.. so that means 15% of the stuff in my collection doesn't have a gender _o_

oh my! It's 100% \o/
Not that I'll never have a female figure on my collection, I dunno... but the male ones are so few compared to the massive release of female figures, that it just melts my heart to get only them (the guys).

Though my collection is still small (19, soon to be 20 when Sengoku Basara's Sanada Yukimura Revoltech arrives), all but 1 is male. The lone girl in the group is a small, inexpensive figure of Rurouni Kenshin's Kaoru, purchased years ago (along with Kenshin) when I was first getting into anime. Good thing she's got that wooden sword to fend off all those guys-- though, since my "Owned" category has been labeled with "bl" underneath it*, perhaps she won't need it after all.

It's not that I have anything against female figures particularly, it's just that, like Melody mentioned above, I buy figures from series I like. Those tend to be either: A.) bishounen-heavy, or B.) mostly evenly split between male and female characters. And even then, the female characters from the latter category of shows (such as the leads from Library Wars, Twelve Kingdoms, & Pumpkin Scissors, to name a few) don't really lend themselves to the figure market (i.e. they're not really "fanservicey"-types). So I've contented myself with just buying male figures, which is probably for the best as it's still a dauntingly expensive hobby even with that restriction.

*As an aside, I'm really curious about those labels under people's collections, especially how they're calculated. For example, some people have a bunch of tags under theirs ("pink hair," "glasses," "male," for example) but I've only got "bl", even though only 4 figures are from overtly BL properties (Lamento & Togainu no Chi). I can't find any mention of it in the FAQ. Anyone know about this?

I only have one girl right now -u-
I still need more guys, to even out the amount of girls I have ordered.

14% only. Don't expect that percentage to go up that much either. XD

I don't understand the bonus page very well.. is there a way to calculate the figures only? 'cause it says I have 23% males in my collection and only 14% females. But I really do have more girl figures than boys u__u"

The bonus page calculates the percentage based on the "male" and "female" tags. So if no one tagged a figure as male or female, it's not counted. So Rainbow-Licorne's other 71% would be untagged figures, for example.
