Thank you, you're the only person besides me who's mentioned D Gray Man in this thread. Oh btw not to get into an argument with you argument or anything but after you watched the anime did you happen to read the manga? Not saying the adaptation was bad, I just look at the manga as the continuation of the story.

I did not. I would have to really love a show to go to the manga afterwards, and while I liked D. Gray Man, I didn't love it.

In the end, just what the general age range that the magazine it's serialized in caters to. Of course, each publisher is different, so there are most likely guidelines for specific things for them to be included in such and such magazine, but overall the content doesn't really define what demographic it goes into.

Yeah, that was my exact point. The demographic label of "shounen" or "seinen" doesn't really mean that much in terms what you're going to get as far as content. Kill Me Baby is a great example because it's just random slapstick humor (shounen, right?), that's classified as seinen because of how it was published.

Demographic labels are generally useless for determining anything about a show.

It's pretty obvious and already been said many times but I have to say Hunter x Hunter. I was surprised that it wasn't under "seinen" because all of the psychology.

Nooooooooo guyyssss Hunter x Hunter is demographic breaking. I refuse to let you saddle a show of such brilliance with a nonsense (as I've already stated) demographic label.

Hunter x Hunter isn't shounen. It isn't seinen. It's just damn good.

Well, I won't spoil anything but I would honestly like to hear your thoughts on it if you ever did read it. Just be warned though if you ever do, it's unfinished and the author is on hiatus. Plenty of content after the anime though.

Doesn't matter if it's damn good the anime is a Shounen with Seinen potential.
