    They're not available on scanlations.
    You can buy it in either Dutch or French. If you understand those languages.

    Action Seinen Manga

    Could you please recomend some good Seinen Action Manga, i have already read Berserk, Gantz, Vagabond, Tenjou Tenge, Zetman and Battle Royal. My favorites are Berserk and Gantz. I already have Blame! and Hellsing, but i dont read yet, so i dunno if they are good.
    Could you please recomend me some, but i doubt there is something good as Berserk or Gantz.
    Did you hear about the man who can´t be destroyed?? = Shin Jin-Ho - "The Immortal"

    He is the Fastest highschooler and the Strongest Linebacker in the history of Japan!! = Shin Seijuurou - "The Perfect Player"

    If you disrupt the discipline in Namimori he will Bite you to Death!! = Hibari Kyoya - Vongola X´s Strongest Guardian

    The man who will be the strongest swordsman!! = Roronoa Zoro - The Pirate Hunter

    Blame is awesome. You could try Ruroni Kenshin.

    He mentioned Gantz and Tenjou Tenge as seinen, and Kenshin is more mature than Naruto or Bleach.

    But thanks for your work, as well!
    You should keep reading Gantz if you have time, it's very good.

    Re: Action Seinen Manga

    Thanks for the opinions, i´m already downloading Shamo, let´s see if it´s good.
    And Lucas, Tenjou Tenge and Gantz are without doubt Seinen, and i already read Kenshin, it´s a good manga with good plot but it´s a shonen, it´s more serious than Bleach and Naruto, but it steels count as Shonen.

    I only read the first volume but I consider Tenjou Tenge more like a hentai. XD

    Shamo has a different style, it depends on your taste,but I liked it very much. it shows you the dark side of the life.Good people cant always win.

    Re: Action Seinen Manga

    If you like Vagabond try Blade of the Immortal. Also Bakafish just started an interessting looking Manga, take a look.

    And your list lacks 20th Century Boys, that is more psychological instead of action, but higly recommend.

    You can also take a look here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seinen ... and read the descriptions of the manga. I could recommend so much, but I'm not a big action fan

    Re: Your favorite seinen (and why)

    Blade of the Immortal (無限の住人) by Samura Hiroaki
    I think this was the first seinen title I ever read. I got into it mainly on the recommendation of a friend and instantly fell in love with it's art style. The plot is very appealing. Even with it's dark storyline, Samura manages to slip a few bits of humor into it. All the characters are engaging from Makie, the female assassin to Shira, the woman-hating sociopath. Love them or hate them, they're all interesting. Rin manages to be a good female lead without being too annoying. And, as I mentioned before, the art style is breath-taking. It floats somewhere between being very realistic to almost traditionally mangaish. Given Samura's penchant show depicting brutal and graphic mutilations, I wasn't entirely surprised to hear that some of his work has appeared in eroguro magazines.

    Lone Wolf & Cub (子連れ狼) by Koike Kazuo & Kojima Goseki
    What appealed to me the most about this series was how, well "old school" and "traditional" it seemed. The art style is realistic and somewhat resembles ukiyo or ink paintings. Whereas the storyline seems like something from a Kurosawa samurai film. Even though each chapter is a new mission for Itto it's still interesting and I can't wait to see how everything turns out. Especially in the chapters in which Itto, a very honorable man, accepts a mission of questionable honor (one would expect him to turn down) and somehow manages to complete his mission, yet also strike back at his employers. The chapters that show a mission through Daigoro's eyes are also especially interesting.

    Samurai Executioner (首斬り朝) by Koike Kazuo & Kojima Goseki
    I started reading this one because I had enjoyed Lone Wolf & Cub so much. To my surprise, I ended up liking this series more. I think it just comes down to the fact that I like Asaemon much more than I like Itto. Where LW&C is a samurai story, SE is more like "crime and punishment". Even though Asaemon is the main character, sometimes he only come in at the end of a story line. I like Asaemon's intelligence (a few times he helps the police solve crimes) and his conscience about what he does for a living. I especially liked the story where he finds that he executed an innocent man and so sets out to demonstrate to the police why they need to catch the real criminals, not except a scapegoat.

    The Ravages of Time (火鳳燎原) by Chen Mou
    This one I picked up on a whim. I admit, I had a hard time getting into this one. Unlike Japan, the most I knew about China was how to find it on a map, so a lot of things confused me. But by the time I finished the first volume I was hooked and started researching things on my own to better understand the series. There are two things I really enjoy about this series. One is that, even though I know what is going to happen (i.e. Lu Bu betrays and kills Dong Zhuo) because it happens historically, seeing how it comes to happen is exciting and full of surprises. The other thing is Bossman Chen's portrayals of certain characters. Zhang Fei is known as a formidable warrior, but also a hot-headed drunkard, but Chen turns him into a skilled artist who is very intelligent as well as a kick ass fighter - he's also believes in Liu Bei so much that he allow himself to be seen as a brash drunkard just to further his big brother's reputation. There is plenty of action, but most of the plot focuses on various schemes - nearly all the characters are frighteningly intelligent and sneaky.

    I don't really read much seinen, but I did enjoy it when I do. Judging from my above list you can see that I really love historical accuracy in my manga (with exception of BotI uses a lot of modern-looking character designs) and intelligent plotlines. One of the things I love the best about the above series is the fans. It's nice to be able to talk about a series I like with intelligent fans who aren't prone to "ship" characters or get into pointless arguments about which character is better. I tend to distance myself from the fandoms of my favourite shounen series because of the lack of sense in it's fans.

    Berserk: As stated above it isnt very linear and changes alot thoughout the story. the art is some of the best i have ever seen and while im not the kind of person who gets excited over the badass-ness of characters. guts really is badass
