Okay you know your talking a to a guy who doesn't know much about anime or manga when they ask what is seinen. because as far as I know everything can be pretty much split into shojo, shonen, supernatural.


seinen = aimed toward adult males.... like people 18+... theres often involvement of sex and better action and blood and other things.... which makes it more realistic and better...

shounen = aimed toward young boys.... which is most likely about heroism, harem and comedy...

shoujo = aimed toward young girls... which often are about sex, abortion, rape, pregnancy, unrequited love, harem, etc...

josei = aimed toward adult females..... which most of them are yaoi (homo boy + boy) manga

Shojo, seinen and josei manga are not just those kinds of stuff described above. If you don't know that, you haven't read enough manga or you haven't explored the non-mainstream ones (the number of such manga is large though they don't have a large audience). There are a lot of drama type of stories set in real life, historical or professional/business situations in the seinen and josei categories (may not include sex or violence). And there are seinen and josei manga like Wolf and Spice, xxxHolic, The Top Secret and Dawn Tsumetai Te.

I recommend this site if you want to know more about manga: http://www.mangaupdates.com. You can practically find all sorts of genres in seinen, shojo and josei manga. Most josei manga are upgaded shojo - stroies including romance. I think the yaoi ones are a category themselves. They don't appear in the same magazines as josei manga.

-.-.... thats true but.... well.... the majority will remember the popular ideas of those manga like those... i mean... yea theres seinen manga like chocolat and ii hito that are pure realistic(well almost?) and 20th century boys (my personal favorite) that are very awesome with no sex or much violence... well... seinen manga are my favorite.... since they are more realistic and most psychological and survival type are seinen...

for your info... ive read over 120 manga.... tho most of them are seinen and shounen... but with a few shoujo and josei... which are bascially not my type....

anyways i forgot to add last time... theres tons of gender blender and smut shoujo manga.... and well.... all shoujo manga can fit into those categories on my list.... at least 1 of them...

josei manga is just like an upgraded version of shoujo with more guys... and less clothes..... which alot of things that didnt show in shoujo showed in josei....

btw.... there are also seinen thats kinda yaoi like ookiku furikabutte... damn it pisses me off everything that dude cry and that other guy clams him down.... like sayin your are inreplaceable or something... damn... so.... omg....

Shoujo, yaoi, school life, gender bender, romance, and comedies. I think that's all of it.

You can find comedy action romance/fanservice in a lot of manga and anime, and that is all good and fun. ( I love hayate no gotoku and mahou sensei negima)
But I like the extreme violence/nudity you can only find in adult oriented manga. I'm reading Tokyo Akazukin and it is F'ing crazy.
