Manga as Voted by Manga Elitist

Basically this is the counter enactment to the other "best manga" list which feature a bunch of people who have read 20 mangas saying "i luv bleach!!!!" and voting it as the best ever despite not knowing much about the medium. The credentials to vote are not being a seinen manga fan, but simply having read over 100 manga. I don't know how many people are going to follow through with the rules, but I figured it was worth a shot.

Guigui Nice list, but you have no control over who can and cannot vote. Btw I have read 100+ mangas, but I keep track of them on myanimelist.


message 2: by Zeta_comics (new)

Zeta_comics 100? We're talking 100 different titles, right? It's a little high...


message 3: by Тsvetan (new)

Тsvetan oh...sry. I read the 100 manga rule after voting.


message 4: by Cameron (new)

Cameron What do you mean by "not being a seinen manga fan"? I'm not a particular fan of any genre, but what does it matter? If you said Shounen or Shoujo, I would probably get it, but why Seinen? The adult male demographic?

Many of mangas that are considered "masterpieces" are seinen manga. For example Berserk, Vagabond, Monster.. FMA is Shounen but i think adults can appreciate it more than teenagers.
MAYBE that's why..

I guess but those all sound pretty elitist and isn't that what we're all collectively trying to cultivate here? I just don't get it...

I think what i meant was that seinen manga tend to have more noticeable 'deeper' and 'mature' themes in their stories, as opposed to shounen or shoujo which tend to focus on entertainment value (although they can get deep sometimes). Hence when thinking about 'quality manga' some people will gravitate to seinen.
And yeah, that does sound pretty elitist. Which the list title admitted.

I think I get what you're saying, but it's honestly bizarre how one of the qualifications to vote is "Do Not Like Seinen Manga". It would make more sense (but still be weird) if he excluded a genre (Like Shoujo Ai for example) rather than a whole demographic. Doing either is weird and I believe demographics (usually) aren't decided by the creator but the publisher.

It's just a strange inclusion to the rules.

I think what he/she meant was "it's okay if you don't like seinen manga, as long as you've read over 100 titles of any manga". So this list is made not for seinen-mature-quality-elitists, but simply people who have read a ton of manga regardless of their preferences.

Maybe the wording just tripped me up, but i think i get it now. I'm totally for the "Only people who've read 100+ manga". It just proves you're an elitist.

you know, you CAN put new books/series in the list and see if people vote for them as well.
