For a start, it is published in the Shounen Ace, which is a dead giveaway it's a shounen.
Well, if you see the trends, it is growing that more violence/nudity is acceptable in shounen nowadays. Probably the genre is getting a bit more loose than previously. Plus, the Shounen/Seinen/whatever genre was never meant to judge how much the nudity/violence in a series. It is for target audience.
Take Claymore for example. It is full of nudity, and I guess no questions about the violence. Slashing heads into pieces and naked women everywhere. But still, it is targeted for young male readers, thus being a shounen. Another example is Blue Dragon. It's full of nudity and sexual scenes, but it's still a shounen.
I've seen seinen series that contains nothing of violence and nudity. They are more thoughts provoking, especially when it comes to slice of life type of manga. So why exactly they are seinen while nothing of these qualities are available in the manga?

Re: Deadman Wonderland
Well I must say this serie is really good. I like the art a lot, it isn't general art we're used to see in many manga. Imo this one is far more better than eureka seven. All characters intrigue me one way or another
I'll look forward to more but I hope HQ scans comes out like the first one (though I think those were cleaned tanks)
The biggest virtue is to support these Seven Deadly Sins in their fight!!!
The last chapter just made it one of the only shonens I've liked so far. The twist was totally unpredictable and considering how the biggest mystery was revealed in only the 11th chapter, I can't hold but wait for another month.
This manga is kind of disturbing...but I'll probably keep reading the new chapters when they come out even though we only get 12 a year....which is really stupid. It's better than Claymore though. Like twice as many pages than Claymore...stupid freaking monthly manga things
