Great Seinen Manga

Seinen manga is targeted at a 18–30 year old male audience, and while it can have the same basic themes as Shounen manga, it tends to be more violent, sexual, psychological, or mature.

What I mean here is to vote for adult, darker manga that isn't shounen, shoujo, or other teen manga types.

Shannon Removed Death Note since it's shounen.

If you enjoy seinen manga, you should check out Josei and Seinen Readers. We're a new group and the only group on GR that discusses josei and seinen manga. The group is 18+.


message 3: by C3zpo (new)

C3zpo I would remove one of the Battle Angel Alita Volumes. It skewes the results as Vol. 1 should have about double the votes

message 5: by Alexandre (new)

Alexandre bartender deserves a spot, methinks


message 6: by Mohammed (new)

Mohammed  Burhan Abdi Osman You can add it if there is English translation volumes.


message 7: by Dana (new)

Dana Salman I loved 20th Century boys! Apparently though Monster seems to be the more popular of Urasawa's work so I'm looking forward to checking it out!


message 8: by Mohammed (new)

Mohammed  Burhan Abdi Osman Monster is pretty awesome that i have hard time getting into his other works because i worry they will only pale in comparison.


message 9: by Zach (new)

Zach Mcguckin Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind, Yotsuba&! and Attack on Titan as great as they are are all shonen


message 10: by Bizdou (new)

Bizdou Thanks for your very nice list! Glad to see there are many seinen I didn't read yet! May be you should add Inspector Kurokôchi!


message 11: by Aurelio (new)

Aurelio Ippandoza have you read Urusawa's manga "BILLY BAT"(2008-2016). i think it is just as good as "MONSTER", if not better.

At first sight of Billy Bat i was like "it looks to cartoony"(is this about mikey mouse) but you are in for a surprise, a really good mystery-thriller adventure.(reading book 8 now).
