Seinen, I guess, but I feel that this is even less concrete than the last poll. With the exception of yaoi/yuri/hentai/lolicon/shotacon (are those really target demographics?), they can contain pretty much anything. There are plenty of shounen/shoujo series with mature themes, and plenty of seinen/josei filled with cliches that you would normally only see in shounen/shoujo... but I digress.

Generally, my favorites have been published in seinen magazines, so I'm going with that.

NightSwan also said that she wanted to peg me, once, but I'm not sure whether to take that as a compliment or a threat...

I like both yaoi and josei. Why do we always only get to vote for one... Well, I voted for yaoi this time. I shall vote for josei on another day. =D

Seinen. A run away first for my favorite Demo. Hentai was second though. XD

I still maintain that there are only four target demographics, shounen, seinen, josei and shoujo. Yuri/yaoi/lolicon/shotacon/shounen-ai/shoujo-ai/hentai are all tags that reflect a manga's content not it's audience and probably should have been in the previous poll.

Still, I'm a yuri fan, so even if it's not a demographic, I still vote for it to give it support. If I was answering the poll truthfully with a response that actually was a demographic, my answer would be seinen.
