A lot of people like shounen romance shit around here. Rosario + Vampire, To-Love-Ru, Love Hina etc.

There are of course shounen that are of a different genre than the neverending action ones. Slice of life/comedy ones like GTO and Zetsubou-Sensei, for example.

This. There was an influx of obnoxious One Piece fans which caused some people to hate it, and then the newfags tried to catch up by spouting the same awful catchphrase over and over again. I've been here for years and most people used to love it.

It's funny how a lot of shonen sagers claim that they're not pedo moeblob fags. If all the daytime shonen haters here only watched/read true seinen, then we'd have nothing but Berserk, Monster, Kemonozume and Vagabond threads.
>>10019572
Yes. Kitarou's obviously aimed at younger audiences (even though I think the new anime is aimed at older fans of the 60s series) and Cromartie's comedy shonen incarnated. Also really overrated in my opinion.
>>10019551

Faggot, when did I try to pass up as another person? Like I've said, Shonen isn't a genre it's a demography. Doesn't matter if you judge a manga to be too "intelligent" or "sophisticated" to be a shonen, if it's published in a shonen magazine then it's one.

You're a retard. Its premise is obviously aimed at shonen audiences and it runs in a shonen mag; that's all there is to it.

The art is unique? Don't get me wrong, it's a nice visual style, but it certainly isn't all that original. Hell, half the characters have the same face.

In terms of purely anrt and story SZS is seinen manga. It's just gets labeled as shounen because it ironises the otaku culture which obviously atracts tyypical shounen audience.

There's two types of seinen. Horrible shit aimed at 18+ pedophiles, basically generic shoujo series with more panty shots and a lot of pornographic merchandise and promotional art. Then you have true seinen, with creatively awesome art, stories that only make sense to mature audiences and great writing. Thing is, THE LATTER TYPE IS RARELY, IF EVER DISCUSSED HERE, ESPECIALLY AT THIS TIME OF THE DAY. They're also extremely rare; very few seinen series end up being more than pretentious piles of shit. Same goes for shonen, josei, shoujo and ALL ANIME EVER

Haha, oh wow. Protip: Every anime with a modern day setting has made fun of otakus at one point.

Also, why do you think SZS always makes fun of overweight middle aged otakus and yaoi fangirls but never says anything about young male anime fans? Because the author doesn't want to insult his target audience.

I like it. The story is a bit cliche, but it is still a really fun ride.

LS is satire of otaku.

TONS of females read Naruto and Inuyasha. Does that make them not shonen?

Just admit that you like a shonen series and quit being a douche.
>>
>>In Japan, many older men read shōnen magazines because of their ease in reading during commutes to and from work on trains. Consequently, in Japan, shōnen manga magazines are the most popular manga magazines.

>>
>>10020189

No, but if it's in a shonen magazine, it's designed to appeal to people who read shonen magazines. People who are 12-18 boys or like manga for 12-18 boys.

GL doesn't deserve to be lumped together with Naruto, Bleach, OP, Inuyasha, and all that stuff. At least GL had a plot and wasn't fucking endless.
>>
>while Lucky Star is otaku fappan with ever-changing scenes and animation for ADD kids.
BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

>>10020242

OP has plenty of plots, all but the current one have ended. They're just not connected in any way except for the Straw Hats' involvement.
>>

Actually, One Piece is infinitely better than GL. And I like both.

OP's storytelling is basically JoJo without the frequent change of main characters. Instead of having three different protagonists for each arc Oda just adds a new one every once in a while.

>GL IS LESS POPULAR MAKING IT BETTER
GL had great production values and some nice symbolism for a children's show, but it relied on references too much. Give OP's license to an animation studio that isn't run by QUALITY-loving korean sweatshop slaves who are known for their overly long stareoffs and fillers and it would definitely beat GL.

I have no idea why I'm even posting this since I'm sure moeblob loving daytime /a/ posters hate both shows equally

It's been discussed pretty often lately, but a few months ago you couldn't even start a One Piece thread without it being sagebombed by newfags

How fucking dumb can people be to actually think Lucky Star or Clannad is mature?
>>
>>10020572
They are seinen.
That means they are for older men.
=mature, well written and thought provoking.

TO PRODUCE A SERIOUS STATEMENT IN A THREAD THAT WENT STRAIGHT DOWN THE RETARDATION ROAD:

Gurren-Lagann is not the worst Anime of 2007 and you can stop trolling it. It's good, everybody agreed. It's Shounen, yes, but it's still good.

Seinen can be awesome but apparently too many people understand "pedophile bullshit" when they hear Seinen. I want more stuff like Monster, 20th Century Boys/21st Century Boys, Pluto which - to me - feels very belgofranconian-ish, if anybody ever read the more grown up comics coming from the belgian-french region.

Wait, that's the punchline? Jesus christ, Tim Buckley is a comedy genius compared to the downs-ridden pedophile behind LS.
>>
>>10020716

Good seinen is good, but the fact is most people who like seinen don't enjoy good/deep shows, but also want to make fun of shounen fags, and thus they fap to Lucky Shit and ClannAIDS.
>>

XIII and Tintin needs to be made into a Manga or Anime
>>
>>10020752
Especially the whole Tintin-Art when in fistfights reminds me of Urasawas Artstyle, just.. well, coloured. It's just some sort of feeling, probably because I've read a fuckton of Asterix and Tintin when I was a kid.
>>
>>10020749
>people who like seinen don't enjoy good/deep shows

What demographic would you say these "good/deep" shows appeal to?
>>
>>10020716
We KNOW truly great seinen exists; a lot of shonenfags watch stuff like Kaiji too. It's just that /a/'s seinenfag trolls are usually fans of moeblob shit and wouldn't go anywhere near something like Sanctuary and Blade of the Immortal.
>>
>>10020771

Seinen. However, the seinen demographic seems to be split between actual good manga/anime and immature pedo shit.
>>
>>10020732
>Wait, that's the punchline?
There was no joke faggot. You are probably the one with Down's.
>>
Get back to your kiddy shounen while I watch Clannad, bitch.

>>10020752
There IS an animated show about Tintin, you know.

4koma are supposed to be funny.
this was even the VERY FIRST lucky star strip, meaning it's supposed to hook the audience.

even most gaijin 4koma are funnier than lucky star
>>
>>10020797

I know but it's not animu enough
>>
Honestly, these are the most pathetic threads on /a/ a whole lot of nothing gets said and then forgotten then the cycle repeats again when someone is TROLLING mind you.

Also, we all know daytime /a/ isn't much of anything, the nighttime crew is a lot better, seriously guys just stop this nonsense. saging my own post because its full of shit, which is made of ass and poo
>>
>>10020787
I've seen the first episode of the animu which adapted that scene and that was shown as a self-contained skit. It was just pointless and retarded; if it truly wasn't meant to be funny, the writers could've thought of a better way of portraying Konata's love of anime.

You know what I really hate? Seinen. Monster? Boring as hell. Nothing to keep you interested. A cliche plot. Mushishi? All gimmick, hardly any substance, also boring as fucking hell. Berserk was good... For the first three thousand fucking chapters.

Really, anyone who reads/watches this shit is deluding themselves into thinking it's good because it's "adult".
