Hunter x Hunter



I'd say Seinen and Psychological are definite sub-genres for Hunter x Hunter

Uhh none of the shows mentioned have ever felt anything but shounen to me.

Seinen is a manga demographic. Shounen is as well. They cannot be applied to anything else. There is no shounen anime or seinen Visual Novels or light novels. The demographic is based upon what magazine manga runs in. Anime can be based off of seinen, shounen, josei or shoujo manga but the genre does not mean anything after adaptation to anime.

Manga switches genres too. Jojo switched from shounen to seinen for example.

This.

A lot of Josei are branded as Seinen to increase viewership, it is a larger demographic.

On the same not, Seinens are called Shounen to boost the viewership. Additionally, shows before the 90s are typically Shounen, the only demographic from back then.


Fist of the North Star released and finished on Shounen Jump so you know.

I don't see why people are surpised that bloody, action / combat heavy shows and manga are considered shounen. I'm pretty sure boys are the normal target audience for that sort of show.

Josei is underrated. Out of Shounen, Seinen, Josei, and Shoujo, it's Shounen that reigns supreme.
