    Shingeki no Kyojin and Kamisama no Iutoori, for me. I think if the demographic of those manga changed, several things could have been better but Manga in Bessatsu Shounen Magazine tend to blur the border between Shounen and Seinen demographics. I also think Gintama is suitable for Seinen as well, but not serialized in Kodansha or Shogakukan Seinen line, but less known magazine such as Young King OURs.

    I think Death Note, FMA, Rurouni Kenshin could all benefit.

    Bleach if only for more creative looking injuries other than arms being cut off.

    Akumetsu: its detailed explanation about political/economical corruption would go over the heads of casual shonen readers who just want to pass the time. I learned that just because it's shonen doesn't mean that it would shy away from violence. There were violence, gore, death, and lots of it.

    Did you like Akumetsu?

    3 titles come into mind. Aku no Hana, Blood Alone and NHK ni Youkoso (initially a light novel, it was serialzied in a Shounen magazine as a manga).

    Aku no Hana would definitely be more appropriate for a seinen.

    I really liked it! I have to admit that the explanations/motive for the killings were complicated, but I loved that Shou wasn't a typical protagonist.

    I'm not sure if FMA would have done better as seinen, it's phenomenal as it is.

    Well there is also some reverse cases Chii is published in a seinen magazine but in a kid collection in its French version.

    In my opinion, Kimi no Iru Machi (A town where you live) should move out of WSM and go into a seinen magazine. I feel like it switched genres at me after a certain point.
