While I don't usually tend to read "mature" manga, I can say that I highly recommend Real Account, King's Game, and Doubt.

All of them have horror as a genre, but the only one that actually scared me to some extent was King's Game (I still found it really great, though).

If you don't really mind a story that might scare people, then I highly recommend these.

(Also is the rating "older teen" counts, then I highly recommend "Boku wa Tomodatchi ga Sukunai" (A.K.A" Haganai" or "I Don't Have Many Friends")

Spice and wolf has to be my favorite light novel series. I bought the anniversary collector's edition. It is a great example of a mature story (both characters are adults and deal with adult situations like adults), without all the unnecessary smut that plagues most "mature" stories.

I love more mature horror; most horror tends to get a 16+ label, but I tend to prefer things like Homunculus and Uzumaki to the sort of thing you find in Higurashi no Naku Koro ni. I also like josei, Sakamichi no Apollon and Chihayafuru and Oooku. Seinen is good, too.

spice and wolf is a mature series?

i saw season 1.. i thought it was some shounen series.. mostly slice of life of sort..

seinen series can be graphic.. but so are R rated movies

It's definetly not a shounen series, not only due to the key demographic, but also because it lacks many of shounen traits (Lawrence is in his mid-twenties, has no powers, there's hardly any fighting) and focuses mainly on the relationship between the protagonists. I'd classify it as an adventure / romance series in medieval setting. And lastly - a title doesn't have to involve graphic violence to be classified as seinen.

If you mean mature as it handles themes and stories that older readers can relate to and appreciate then I have a bunch of recs

Vertical Inc. publishes almost exclusively mature titles for older readers both in the seinen and josei demographic
I love all the titles I've purchased from them and I can totally recommend the following;
Lychee Light Club by Usumaru Furuya (rated mature for: explicit gore, nudity and a little sexual content)
Sakuran by Moyoco Anno (rated mature for sexual content)
Usamaru Furuya's modern adaption of No Longer Human (explicit sexual content and nudity)
Helter Skelter by Kyoko Okazaki (explicit sexual content)
Flowers of Evil by Shuzo Oshimi (mild sexual content) if you watched the anime you can pick it up at volume 5 since the anime covers volume 1-4 exactly
Some of these are sadly out of print but available digitally or if you're lucky your local comic store might have it in stock

Viz also publishes manga for older/mature readers under their SIG imprint and I can recommend any title they've published by Inio Asano or Natsume Ono

I don't really feel that Real Account is a "mature" series. It seems very teen but it deals with a real world problem. I have all of Real Account so far and Haganai except for the specials.

Oh, and after a few years of observing the age ratings on Seven Seas Manga, I assume that they do not have an 18+ rating and that a lot of 16+ manga are mature as well.

I think there are some other ones, but I don't remember em' right now.
