you should make a poll for this, and the titles a bit off.

good question. What is seinen doods?
Posted 4/2/08
Seinen is anime or manga targeted at males who are 18 years and older because it's a lot more graphic more blood, nudity etc... while Josei is anime or manga targeted for women 18 and older...
Gantz, Trigun, XXXHolic, Darker then Black, GunXSword, 3x3 Eyes, GoldenBoy are some good examples of seinen anime...

Seinen is AWESOME. Compared to shoujo and shounen, it is even more awesome. Shounen uses the plot: I'm gonna be the best ____ too much. Shounen tends to be immature, predictable, and strays from the plotline. Shoujo too, is predictable. Well, mostly. Shoujo, directed toward young girls, are just too happy most of the time. Happy, predictable romances. They tend to get boring after watching too much. Seinen on the other hand, is mature and doesn't really stray from the plot line. Well, at least you know what the plot is. Unlike some shounen anime. A lot of masterpieces are seinen, such as Monster, Kaze no Stigma, and Kaiji.

EDIT: Oh, and Elfen Lied is seinen. =O Honestly, if you don't know what seinen is, chances are, your not much of a anime fan.

Hell yeah! Seinen is the best genre there is. Seinen is great.
Theres enough action, blood and gore, suprises in the storyline and with a little twist of mystery in it. And they use ecchi in the perfect way. Ahh...the epicness! Shounen and Shoujo are alright...but a little too overused/overrated.

Considering that...most of the Seinen That i have seen (manga wise...can't really find the anime counterparts...angry about that) Have considerable amount of blood and gore, at times to point of complete depression, almost never having a plausible happy ending (plausible in the sense of It's realistic). However I wholly agree That Seinen is One of the great Genre Kings of anime. Followed by Josei, that is a more mature counter part of it.

Kaze no Stigma is Seinen? It seems more Shounenish to me..


It does seem a bit shounen-ish but I think its considered seinen.

I like Seinen, then Shonen, then Shojo.

Seinen: Zero no Tsukaima, Shakugan no Shana, Ah! My Goddess, etc.

Shonen: Hayate no Gotoku!, D. Gray Man, etc.

Shojo: Shugo Chara

Yes.
I will occasionally stumble upon a Shonen that I like, but 80% of the Anime I watch are Seinen.
