    Exclamation Seinen Forums Guide and Index

    Welcome to Mangahelpers Seinen Forums

    Seinen refers to any manga serialized in magazines marketed to adult men. Readers are generally eighteen or older, though that does not mean there are no younger readers. All adult males is a large audience, seinen manga tend to cover a wide range of genres and styles in order to appeal to such a diverse readership. The magazines also try to target specific age groups, rather than attempt to appeal to everyone. Genre, content, and style do not define seinen which is merely a demographic designation. The popular bishoujo comedy K-On!, cyberpunk classic Blame, and near hentai Futari Ecchi are all equally seinen.

    General Rules:
    • Discussion in this forum is focused on single series. For more general discussion head to the Seinen Hangout or Otaku Cafe.
    • When creating a thread, please follow this format for the title: Series Title by Mangaka.
    • There are no requirements, but please try to add as much information about a series as possible.
    • Only one thread per series.
    • Please use the search function to see if a series already has a thread. The advanced search allows for search by title.
    • The seinen forums are for discussion only. Do not ask for raws, translations, or scanlations.
    • This forum is for seinen manga only. When in doubt, use Mangaupdates to look a series up.
    • Please do not discuss any hentai manga.
    Prefixes are based on publishing status in Japan
    • Ongoing: Currently published in Japan
    • Complete: Publication has ended in Japan
    • Hiatus: A temporary halt in publication.
    • Canceled: Publication has been terminated prematurely.
    • One Shot: Short stories. Typically one chapter, always less than a volume.
    • Info: Mod use only. For rules, guides, and the hangout thread.
    Spoiler Rules:

    24 Hour Spoiler Rule:
    • Mangahelpers enforces a temporary blockade for discussion of new spoilers/chapters. This blockade ends 24 hours after raws are publicly released.
    • For series with no forum, [spoiler] tags must be used while the 24 hour rule is enforced.
    • Please wait 24 hours before using art from new chapters in signatures and avatars.
    • Please wait 24 hours before posting any art based on new chapters in the art and stories section.
    • The 24 hour rule will be strictly enforced. This is a courtesy rule. Not every member reads spoilers and not everyone can read new chapters as soon as they are released.


    We ask that the same format used to post spoilers in the sub-forums is also used for single threads. We also ask that [spoiler] tags are used in single threads. Please follow these examples:

    Spoiler: Manga Title, Chapter Number show

    Spoiler: Manga Title, Chapter Number show
