Re: New to Seinen Manga

I have a lot of free time, so I could read Gantz, vagabond without waiting for weekly released, that's kind of cool.. The bad is when I finish the released chapters and have to wait a week for another, just like with naruto, one piece, bleach and longer for berserk.
Then you find another series. :)

Re: Your favorite seinen (and why)

i've read shamo and the lead character was pretty twisted... ichi the killer is as mad as him.. beserk is quite at the same level... gantz can be pretting gruesome too.. what else... blade of the immortal.. vagabond.. fist of the north star...

Re: Your favorite seinen (and why)

I guess my favorite would really be Suzumiya Haruhi. Its the best in my opinion. Funny, Entertaining and Unique. And I really really love the Characters. I'm kinda wondering why there isn't a Haruhi Suzumiya discussion thread here.

Because it isn't seinen. There's a Suzumiya discussion thread in General manga, I think.

Re: Your favorite seinen (and why)

dorohedoro suffocating atmosphere and strange world.
tsutomu nihei's works intense and realistics worlds and lot of action.
shamo extreme perversity of the character.
blade of the immortal and berserk are also good.
gunm series and akira, cyber punk post apocalytic universes.
fist of the north star, fist of the blue sky. kenshiro family :)
maybe bastard for the obscenity of the character but not much.

Re: Your favorite seinen (and why)

since nobody mentioned,
-national quiz <-still on top of my list
-no5
-japan tengu party

and offcourse:
-ryuguden
-boku to issho
-believers
-black&white

ah i forgot the why. because the art is original, the subject is original, the seinen is the best.
and there is no need for physical violence.

Re: Your favorite seinen (and why)

I think Claymore should be considered a seinen manga, it's similar to berserk and all. And if it is, then Claymore is definitely the best out there, if you compare it to berserk or gantz at volume 12.

Why? Well, there's just something about it that draws you towards it. The author doesn't shy away from killing an important character, and the art is pretty cool (unique). The pace is great, it doesn't drag on forever like berserk, and the characters are really charming. You just gotta try it for a few volumes to know what I mean.

Re: Your favorite seinen (and why)

I think Claymore should be considered a seinen manga,
Serialized in Monthly Shounen Jump. So, not a seinen. So unless it gets switched over to a seinen magazine later on in its lifetime, it's a shounen.

Re: Your favorite seinen (and why)

my favourite seinen mangas are:

Vagabond - fantastic art, great fights and story and its about THE sword saint, it cant be bad :)

Samurai Executioner, Lone Wolf & Cub - I love to read these, and also the glossaries at the end of the volumes. I've read the first volume of Path of the Assassin, but somehow I dont find that manga as entertaining as SE and Lone Wolf.

Pluto - a manga that made me cry,sigh, I have no excuse for it, Im a pussy :P Im surprised there is no thread for this one

Angjo Onshi - I love this one. The first manga that I've read in Hungarian. I got the first 2 volumes for X-mas from my girlfriend :3

20th century boys - well, this is my favourite manga ever. its simply the biggest, the best, better then the rest, better then the rest :P

I like Monster and Berserk too, but Im not really into them, yet

hmmm, thats all I guess

oh I almost forgot Akumetsu - a kid punishes bad guys and his head blows up, its fantastic

Re: What is Seinen Manga?

A good example of Seinen Manga is Sakura Tsuushin or Sakura Diaries...

Re: Recommendations for dark and gory manga

Claymore is not a seinen actually. It's shounen.

Re: What is Seinen Manga?

xxxHolic is a Seinen. One major indication of this because it is published in the Young Magazine, which is obviously a Seinen magazine.

Yeah, anything published in any magazine with Young in the title is most likely Seinen or Josei. Also, the raws don't have the the furigana above the Kanji. Furigana are the little hiranga or katakana characters that tell you how to pronounce the Kanji character.
