    I <3 the Village People. Everyone wants be a macho man. And join the Navy. And stay at the YMCA.

    <Viraten> It's better than Naruto

    i really dont care where they are serialized and what wikipedia states.

    FDrom what i've read they fullfill every criteria to be a seinen manga. And in my opinion they are

    If something has no males at all, then there's a decent chance it's meant to be read by them. Unless it's in Yuri Hime/Yuri Shimai.

    I thought it was supposed to be shoujo because of the lack of boys in the story and it's just pure childish comedy...how can that be seinen??

    Oh and I wonder why only one person said bitter virgin.....it's awesome!!
    Azumanga Daioh belongs to the class of manga/anime known as 'healing' in Japan. Believe it or not, Azumanga Daioh, Hidamari Sketch, Kamichu!, and Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou are all hardcore seinen.

    Old guys falling asleep on the train after working eight million hours like to read something light, happy, and mellow. 20th Century Boys isn't for everyone, or for every time.

    If there's a reliable quality to Seinen it's that it usually has a little less manic slapstic comedy and fanservice than shounen does. Well, that, and the lack of helper hiragana beside the text. Other than that, pretty much anything goes.

    That said, seinen often has more complex characters and plots, and so those of us who have read our fair share of shounen action manga tend to prefer the serious/heavy seinen stuff.

    Here's my blog post on just what makes a manga shounen, seinen, shoujo, or josei.
    Not really the love+hate god, but the pic (from Midori no Hibi) is just too funny... Blog? Yeah.

    you might want to read Sanctuary first since it's finished, but they're both tremendous so it doesn't make much difference.

    Just as well your "opinion" (lulz) doesn't enter into it.

    And I really don't care what you think, because you're wrong.

    The only "criteria" it needs to be labeled Shounen or Seinen is the magazine it's serialized in. (Hello, Azumanga Daioh & Yotsuba&!)

    Ta-da! Voila! A Shounen! Regardless of what you may think or want; Fact is, it's a shounen.

    There are differences between Western standards and Eastern standards for viewer's. Eastern is more lenient whereas Western is more strict.

    Or to put it another way, seinen and shonen (and shojo and josei) are statements about where it's serialized, and not about its content -- and you can get in trouble by inferring the latter from the former.

    But included in that statement is the target audience.

    Shounen magazines have furigana, to make it easier to read for the kids. Whereas Seinen magazines are purely kanji.

    Bitter Virgin is kinda funny, there are comedy elements although its really dark comedy and most of its pretty serious drama...

    Lemme go look up what Sanctuary is about...


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends
