Its a seinen anime isn't it? I also noticed that Crunchyroll doesn't have any other seinen anime. Why is that?

Is terra formas good? I just watched the first episode which I liked but wasn't sure if it was worth watching the rest of it.

Terraformars is a shonen (target demographic, not genre) anime because is aimed at teenage boys, believe it or not. The manga is serialized in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump. The same thing happens to Attack on Titan.

Haven't seen the show, could possibly be an oversight on CRs part.

However, since seinen is a demographic (though it's often used as a genre), it could be that the source material is actually shounen. Or it could even be that the source material is seinen, and the show is shounen. I think I saw that happen once before. Funny how demographics and genres work.

Terra Formars is not the only seinen title CR has.though. Here's a list of the ones that show up under the search filter

However, as proof that seinen is more of a demographic and not necessarily a genre, i'll point you to two of my favorite seinen titles on CR which are actually listed under the "seinen" search filter and based on seinen source material.

The Wikipedia entry for TF did mention this when I looked it up. I assumed it referred to Shonen Jump. Thanks for the clarification.
