this is all my opinion but, It seems similar to Kuroshitsuji, which is very shoujo. (with nicely dressed bishounens and such)

...protagonist gender doesn't determine demographic. Your "feeling" or "opinion" doesn't determine demographic--the demographic of the manga does.

Plenty of shoujo manga have male characters. It's shoujo because it's published in Sylph, a shoujo magazine.

.............. and Kuroshitsuji is not shoujo. It's shounen, published in a magazine for guys. Shounen manga with fanservice is a well-known occurrence.

and like I said, a demographic, by definition, is not subjective. Look up the term. It's not shoujo because it's not published in a magazine for girls. Clear-cut, no opinion.

Even though Kuroshitsuji is said to be shounen, it's full of "fanservice" for girls.

Your point? The fact that fanservice exists in popular shounen manga is very well documented. Google it. Hell, just pick up an issue of Jump. Obvious. It's an attempt to appeal to another demographic.
