Let us get on with it here is today’s blog post. How to identify the basic types of anime and manga (an essential guide)
I get many questions like what is Shonen and Seinen and why so here are the basics to explain hope.
It means “Few years” Shonen mostly referred to young boys under the age of fifteen. This is why Shonen anime and manga are aimed at that demographic. Many of these anime and manga include a young male hero and are focused on action, adventure, and fighting. However comedies and series with female characters have become more common in the series. some popular Shonen anime and manga are dragon ball, bleach, naruto, one-piece, watamote.
Seinen refers to young men between the ages of 15-24 This genre tends to be more thiller and more violent, and there is a comedy, as well as photography which is why this is for older audience anime that are in these, are: Bresek ghost in shell Akira Hellsing Grantz
Shojo is translated into young girls between the ages of ten to eighteen; they tend to focus on romance. They always had a female lead also we see a bit of action, and popular adventure anime in this genre are NANA, Sailor Moon, Revolutionary Girl Utena, Fushigi Yuugi, and Ouran High School Host Club.
Josei is more realistic in the sense which goes into drama and older women. Sometimes it covers dark subjects that we see in real life. most of these series feature pretty men some of the most famous Josei series: are loveless paradise kiss honey and clover.
Kodomomuke means children that are generally imaginative and instruct genuinely and other important to young kids; sometimes, they are original stories, and sometimes they are adapted from western literature. Some work included Doraemon, Hello Kitty, Chibi Maruko-chan, Heidi, Girl of the Alps, Anne of Green Gables, and Anpanman.
