Seinen Manga vs. Seinen Anime – Manga Olympics for Bloggers (Seinen/Shounen Round 1/part 2)

This is the second post for the Olympics. Voting begins today.


MangaVSAnime

Anime are so popular these days, with more and more anime fans coming out everyday. The Otaku community is growing yet manga seems to have less fans or is less popular than anime. According to MyAnimeList the most popular manga has around 99,921 readers while the most popular anime has been watched by 335,870 people. The numbers seems unfair, even though manga are way better than anime. So how is Seinen manga better than Seinen anime?

I’ve watched a large number of anime titles, around 400 anime. Some of the Seinen anime I’ve watched are Ergo Proxy, Berserk, Gantz, Another, Aoi Bungaku Series, Zetman, Black Lagoon, Jormungand, Btooom!, Canaan, Brave 10, Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko, Freezing, Devil Lady, Hellsing, and Manyuu Hikenchou. What I’ve noticed is that if the manga contains brutal violence they make a lame anime out of it. while if the manga is Ecchi they make it Ecchier. oh, and the gory scene are always censored. I seriously don’t get it but moving on. Examples:

Gantz anime vs. manga:

gantz

I was very impressed when I watched Gantz anime it was gorier than saw movies. Also the Sci-Fi there is amazing. The ending surprised me, it felt like that was it. Though when I googled it I found out about the manga. The manga had 300 something chapters and was still ongoing at the time. So I was curious and check it out! I was blown away by how good the manga was. It was gorier than the anime, had more character and explained the story better. After reading the manga I was disappointed with the anime it didn’t serve the manga right. The manga is so complex and brutal. There is always a stronger enemy. Also, the characters that came later on in the manga had deeper stories. One you start reading it you just can’t stop. It’s so addictive. If you haven’t read the manga yet, your missing a lot already.

Zetman anime vs. manga:

Zetman

I don’t know why Zetman’s anime was made. I mean the manga is 185 chapter today, and the anime is 13 episodes. Can you see how wrong that is? So I was thinking maybe the anime was made a sum up of the manga. Though with all respect the anime simple gave the manga a bad name. The manga is so good, it’s pretty brutal and more in depth “story wise”. So if anything I rather read the manga again than what the anime again.

Devil Lady anime vs. manga:

Devilman Lady

In Devilman Lady case the anime is an alternative version of the manga. In the anime the main character is a model, she has a best friend(or was she a lover?) and she hates Asuka. In the manga the main character is a teacher, doesn’t have much friends, and she loves Asuka. See what I mean by an alternative version?
Now, why is the manga better than the anime? The manga is more complex and more mature than the anime. I kinda understand why the anime was made as an alternative version. You see in this manga particularly there is some Greek mythology creatures, such as: Hydra, and Cerberus. Also a part of the manga around 4-6 chapter takes place in hell. I think they were trying to moderate the anime. Though who cares about that. Read the manga it’s way better!!

Sum up:

These were only some example of how different and sometime unfair anime can be. Though more importantly and surprisingly most of the top Seinen manga don’t have an anime. Which basically gives you more reason to simply stick with manga. I’ll recommend you read OldBoy, Nononono, 20th century boys, wolf guy, and Pluto. So maybe then you’ll understand the magic of manga!

Seinen Manga – Manga Olympics for Bloggers (Seinen/Shounen Round 1/Part 1)

This is the first post for the Olympics. Voting begins today.


Hellsing_manga-horz-vert-horz

There are 4 major genres is manga: Shounen, Seinen, Shoujo, and Josei. Here is a little explanation about those 4 genres (incase you don’t know what they mean). Shounen manga is intended for teenagers, teenage boys specifically for example Naruto, One Piece. Seinen manga is intended for young adults, or young men for example Gantz, Berserk. Shoujo manga is intended for teenage girls for example Fruit Basket, Skip Beat!. Lastly, Josei is intended for women, or young women for example Honey and Clover, Paradis Kiss. Each of these genres have sub genres under them.

Since our topic is Seinen I’ll be talking about Seinen sub genres:

Action

List of most popular Action/Seinen manga:

Black Lagoon

blm11

Btooom!

btooom-2627273

Green Blood

green-blood-3335449

Holyland

holyland-2501125

Vagabond

[Strays]Vagabond_v25_c217_016

Vinland Saga

vinland-saga-1715517

Action in Seinen manga:

Action in Seinen manga is more violent than Shounen manga. Also, The fights in Seinen manga are there with killing intention. I personally perfer Seinen action because its more serious and more real. For example in Btooom! the characters are fighting for their survival. They fight for themselves and their comrades. Also when someone is killed they actually die. While shounen manga action is mostly associated with comedy. For example Bleach the main character gets killed 3 times and he’s more power than ever. -.-
So Seinen/Action is the best. Since, there are stories about Mafias, Arms dealers, assassins… Etc. and they are always realistic.

Comedy

Some popular Comedy/Seinen manga:

Hentai Ouji To Warawanai

p_00029

Schoolmate

11

Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Comedy ha Machigatteiru

5

Comedy in Seinen manga:

Seinen/Comedy is so bold and mature. It’s so funny… Kinda dirty sometimes. Also some Seinen/comedy are totally weird like 17 sai °C. So it interesting.

Drama

Some popular Drama/Seinen manga

Hotman

HOTMAN07_000_s7_

Octave

octave_v01_ch06_pg012

Rainbow

rainbow-1651746

Drama in Seinen manga:

Seinen/Drama are no joke. You wanna read good drama read it Seinen. They are so well written. They’re very deep and realistic. I didn’t like drama until I’ve read a Seinen/Drama manga. They have the most interesting topics. They are a must read.

Gender Bender

Balance Policy

BP

Nononono

nononono-2098675

Gender Bender in Seinen manga:

So what differs a Seinen/Gender Bender from a Shounen/Gender Bender?

Seinen/Gender Bender are more dramatic and mature than Shounen/Gender Bender. How? Shounen/Gender Bender have the tendency to be comedy and Ecchi, while Seinen/Gender Bender focus on the story both character history and future goal. So Seinen/Gender Bender is the manga to read.

Horror

List of most popular Horror/Seinen manga

Another

Goth

Sugar Dark: Umerareta Yami to Shoujo

p10_26

Berserk

berserk-1591891

BLAME!

blame2_186_187

Horror in Seinen manga:

Horror is one of my favorite genres. Seinen/Horror is the scariest type of horror in the world. No movie, anime, comic book, or a series is scarier than a Seinen/Horror manga. They took horror to a new level with titles such as Blame!, Berserk, and I am a Hero. You want to know what horror means read a Seinen/Horror manga.

Psychological

Some popular Psychological/Seinen manga:

Himegoto: Juukyuusai no Seifuku

d001_p121

Monster

Monster image

Old Boy

oldboy

Psychological in Seinen manga:

The Seinen/Psychological manga are so interesting. Personally, once I start reading them, I won’t stop until I finish the story. Mostly Psychological manga are Seinen/Psychological/Mystery or Seinen/Psychological/Slice of Life and there is also a Seinen/Psychological/Horror but I won’t talk about that.
First, Seinen/Psychological/Mystery in these manga the main character is usually in some sort of struggle and he is being bushed to his limits “Psychologically speaking”. Second, Seinen/Psychological/Slice of Life these manga are usually about self development how the main character find peace with him/herself or learn how to accept themselves.
Seinen/Psychological manga are amazing. Everyone can enjoy them even though their plots are mature. There are amazing lessons there.

Romance

Some Romance/Seinen manga:

Haruwaka

4

Hen

hen_v06_c63_055

Romance in Seinen manga:

I’m not a fan of Romance manga in general. So this is gonna be brief… Seinen/Romance usually have mature content and nudity. As for the romance…it’s more honest, open, straight forward, and sexual. Also maybe Harem sometime.

Sci-Fi

List of most popular Sci-Fi/Seinen manga:

20th Century Boys

This has been an artwork of Firewalker

Gantz

Gantz-Manga-Chapter-365-016

Ghost in the Shell

7

Gokukoku no Brynhildr

kiwaguro-no-brynhildr-3634893

Kamen Rider Spirits

fshin_kamen_rider_spirits_v01_c01_002_003

Pluto

AtomvsPluto

Zetman

Minitokyo_Zetman

Sci-Fi in Seinen manga:

Science fiction is one of the most popular Seinen sub genres, with titles such as Gantz, Zetman, Pluto, Ghost in the shell, and 20th century boys. The stories are pretty mature “plot wise” and they are also complicated. There are always twists in the stories. It’s never straight forward and that’s what keeps them interesting. The world that’s created and the amount of imagination there is insane. It’s absolutely wonderful to read.

Sport

Some popular Sport/Seinen manga:

One Outs

00-cover

Karate Shoukoushi Kohinata Minoru

lkarate_shoukoushi_kohinata_minoru_v08_c086_kskm_v08_c086_p191

Last Inning

last-inning-1442181

Giant Killing

giant-killing-3533819

Sports in Seinen manga:

The Seinen/Sport manga are more realistic than any other genre. It’s about the development of a player and a team at the same time. I like how they show the whole process of self development for the Athletes and how it reflects on their team for group sports. As for single sports I like how the athlete learns from everything around them and apply it to their sport as they’re developing their skills. It’s so interesting to read.

Supernatural

List of most popular Supernatural/Seinen manga:

Dance in the Vampire Bund

171

Devilman Lady

12

Elfen Lied

elfen-lied-1886867

Getsurin ni Kiri Saku

o040

Hellsing

hellsing-mangaspec2_edit-kenzeitak

Wolf Guy: Ookami no Monshou

wolf-guy-ookami-no-monshou-2176821

Supernatural in Seinen manga:

Supernatural is also a popular Seinen sub genre, with titles such as hellsing, devilman lady, Elfen Lied and wolf guy. If you haven’t read Seinen/Supernatural manga yet, then you don’t know what a vampire, or a werewolf is. Seinen/Supernatural took myth creatures such as vampires, shape-shifters and werewolves to a different level. They focus on revealing their monstrosity and their fearsome power. The stories are very deep and serious. The fights are brutal and drama is amazing.

Seinen:

So generally speaking Seinen manga are mainly mature “plot/content wise”. The violence there is brutal and vicious. The stories have a dramatic tendency, with deep and realistic plots. As far as fantasy goes its pretty complex and mysterious. Seinen manga can also be scary, funny, or disturbing sometimes. Sienen manga are surely interesting and truly the best!
