There are tons of anime/manga that are made towards a certain audience in mind and these are the categories that are used. This is honestly a tough question so think carefully about some of your favorite anime/manga and choose your answer based on the anime/manga you like the most.

In my personal opinion its hard to pick between Shonen and Seinen and here's why for me...

Shonen Anime/Manga I love:
-Dragon Ball, One Piece, Naruto, Bleach, YuYu Hakusho, Code Geass, Hunter x Hunter,
Soul Eater, Slam Dunk, Kuroko no Basuke, Attack on Titan, Samurai Champloo, Fairy Tail, Magi, Reborn!, Air Gear, Gintama, Full Metal Alchemist, and many more

Seinen Anime/Manga I love:
-Tokyo Ghoul, No Game no Life, Psycho-Pass, Gangsta, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Overlord, One-Punch Man, Kill la Kill, Angel Beats, Black Lagoon, Parasyte, Trigun, Ghost in the Shell, Btooom!, Darker than Black, Fate/stay night, Mushishi, Berserk, Hellsing, Grisaia, and many more

In the end...
since I'm almost 19 and what I'm currently watching is going to influence my choice...
it has to be...



SEINEN!!!! sorry people but I'm loving the Seinen content that has been coming out recently although I do love my Shonen and in my heart I'm always a little kid who loves it.



*Sorry if all my anime/manga wasn't correctly placed in the seinen or shonen parts.

(note my comment pertains to the action/marital arts genres)

shounen.. I love seinen as-well, but there are too many seinen manga that try to be edgy by putting rape or unnecessary fan-service in every chapter.

I started reading sen-ken rock awhile back and it was great, until the plot points of "and she was RAPED by THOUSANDS of dicks!" and its like.. ok.. I see where your going with this and what your trying to do, and its not working.

Most of my favorite shows/manga's are seinen though, but I tend to enjoy shounen manga/anime alot more on average.

There are tons of anime and manga that are Shonen and have ton of fan-service too and they also have unnecessary fillers, but I see what you're saying, thanks!

Shounen/Shoujo and Seinen/Josei are completely different from each other. They probably shouldn't be grouped together.

People who like shounen shows don't necessarily like shoujo shows, and vice versa. People go to shounen and shoujo shows for different reasons. To group them together in the poll seems like it wouldn't give you a good idea of what types of shows people generally prefer, since the same option contains two types of shows with two separate fanbases.

I don't think you understand how I grouped them lol.
I grouped them based on the target audience (age).
Shonen and Shojo are targeted towards young teens and boy or girls.
While Seinen and Josei targets the young adult and older audience.
That is how I came up with the grouping so I hope you understand.
It's actually pretty simple...
I understand what you're saying though, but this poll I think suites well as is.

I LIKE shounen / shoujo a lot but I also lately enjoy more adult manga and genres as well. And admittedly while I'm not a yaoi or yuri SHIPPER most of the time, I read bl/gl stories in my spare time that have original characters, but I'm not always 100% interesting in shipping characters in most of the anime i watch that aren't canon, cept for maybe like KumikoxReina, but no like I can't ship any of the guys from free! pfff.

That's totally fine! I'm just saying the content is geared toward for mature audiences which is 18+
