Where do you draw the line between shonen and seinen? There are ones that obviously fit into their respective categories, but others seem to fit in either demographic.
What magazine do they serialize in?
In which time slot does the show air?
Shonen and seinen are not genres.
If it runs in a shonen magazine it's a shonen
If it runs in a seinen magazine it's a seinen.
It's not that hard to understand you fucking filthy retarded plebeian Naruto fan.
Shounen and Seinen refers to the ads sold alongside the product. The product itself tells you nothing.
Shounen or Seinen are not genres or even necessary when categorising any manga or anime
Fuck off back to /v/
>for grown ups
Anon, pls. Everyone knows cartoons are for children.
Rule of thumb. Also, demographics don't magically make something good or bad.
This is true though and if you pointlessly disagree then you're stupid /v/ermin trash or ignorant fucking MAL shitstains
IM is shounen.
OP probably means when something an older audience would more likely appreciate is found alongside things aimed at a younger audience
I don't even know what MAL is. I got here just to ask an advice for something I could show to my seven years old son. I never asked for any of this.
I hate moe and even I can recognize that Naruto is objective shit.
There is no line.
Manga in a shounen magazine is a shounen manga.
Manga in a seinen magazine is a seinen manga.
That's it. That's all there is to it.
As for anime - whatever the manga/LN it's whatever the manga it was adapted from was.
If it's not, then you look at the timeslot it runs in, or what the manga adaptation of it is, if it exists.
> I never asked for any of this.
Then don't ever come here.
>I don't even know what MAL is
Good. Keep it that way.
>going to /a/ for advice
As for anime, I dislike even using the categorizations. It doesn't make sense, and often they're no longer going to the same audience. It's only senselessly confusing.
you're not op fuck off dad
>or what the manga adaptation of it is, if it exists
This doesn't really work. Off the top of my head, take Densha Otoko for example - it had a bunch of manga adaptations in different magazines. I'm pretty sure the Code Geass manga also ran in different magazines.
I don't particularly like shounen but even after watching anime for 15 years I can't wrap my head around the fact that grown men enjoy watching the shows on the top of that picture.
In my book moefags are to /a/ what mlp-fags are to /co/ only that moefags didn't get their own board.
implying people who have kids post here
It's because you are still a kid yourself.
But Im 27?
I base it on how wikipedia lists the demographic.
Well if I were you, then I would not admit that.
>over 12 years old
>still likes shounenshit
And you tell me I have shit taste for watching "moe" shows?
how do you say moe
>I don't particularly like shounen
How is your reading comprehension my friend?
Why? I don't feel embarrassed for watching anime.
>Where do you draw the line between shonen and seinen?
shonen is published in a shonen magazine
seinen is published in a seinen magazine
OH MY GOD THIS IS SO DIFFICULT TO UNDERSTAND
Jesus fuck just get the fuck off of /a/ and go back to whatever casual shitsite it is you actually spend most of your time on you fucking retarded piece of shit, we don't want you here
im not chinese...
>shonen and seinen
you actually implied shonen and seinen are genre names
you're fucking retarded
Somebody please translate these hieroglyphics to american
ooooooooooooooh lol thats what io thought but someone told me something eelse
You perceived what I wrote incorrectly then you autistic pleb. What i meant was the different demographics, like teens vs. manchildren/adults.
>Doesn't understand the difference between genres and demographics
>Calls another person a pleb
I don't even fucking know right now.
You probably enjoy objective shit like Naruto don't you?
That's how I used to pronounce it until I learnt moon speak.
It's not "embarrassed to watch anime" it is the "being 27" part. I could forgive myself for having that sort of attitude if I was around high school, but admitting that I am this age and thought that would just be embarrassing.
You know, you should probably go outside once in a while if you really get this upset about cartoons anon. Try to get a girlfriend or other human interaction, maybe?
That I am 27 and do not care for the typical moe shows or the people who watch them?
Don't feel embarrassed by that either im afraid.
That's right! It's his fault for being annoyed with others for being goddamn idiots.
Getting mad over Chinese cartoons borders on autism.
And I would be even more ashamed for not being embarrassed by that.
It's the pretension to maturity is the problem, an attitude that is most frequently seen in people half our age.
Getting annoyed at basic, stupid incompetence is normal regardless of the subject.
>It's the pretension to maturity is the problem
I never said I was more mature than anyone else, just that I find it strange that grown men like "moe shows" in the same way I find it strange they like MLP.
If that gets your autism so riled up I can't imagine how much your everyday life has to be full of rage.
"grown men" "grown men"
When you say things like that it really does seem that way.
Really, it is strange, about as strange as the idea of grown men watching cartoon commercial for giant robot toys aimed at grade school children
don't take it personally.
>Where do you draw the line between media marketed towards teens and media marketed towards adults? There are ones that obviously fit into their respective categories, but others seem to fit in either demographic.
Look at the magazine they run in you retard.
That's how you draw the line.
Remember, I am not the one you are originally talking to.
And yes, yes it is. Let's say the invention of rage-fueled devices will be a good day for me.
Why do you think I am a fan of shonen when in already in my first post wrote that I do not care for it?
Indeed I find shonen to be as revolting as moe most of the time.
Never said you were a fan. I was just saying the things you wrote are symptomatic of said pretension and that most all of the board materials can't be used to judge anything.
"Excessive Explanation for Clarity" time
I was A: referring to the picture of Kamille. Because that is the kind of thing someone who has at least gone through Zeta would have.
and B: To reinforce the point that "it is all the same shit".
Is this a joke or do guys on this board actually think like this?l
