I resent the lack of Dorohedoro.

Bleh, One Punch Man it is

Quote from Cthylla
Needs more Humunculus.


Wow, I didn't think I'd see someone else vote for that. But still, I'd vote for Vinland Saga anyway, being the greatest work I've read so far, miles ahead from anything else. And I did enjoy :

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Farmland Saga. A true form of evolution I'd never seen in anything, completely changing its nature. And only at that point did it become my favorite manga.


It's weird to see Liar Game while there isn't a single work of Fukumoto Nobuyuki being nominated. And I thought his previous One Outs was way more popular and liked.

Aw man, no REAL or Zetman. ;_;
Makes it a lot harder to choose my favorite...
I went with Punpun in the end because the art is so great and this interview made it make a lot more sense, but now I feel like I should've gone for Tokyo Ghoul. Ah well.

Ugh this list is awful. Boring, mundane, same old same old action or fantasy. I liked Punpun a lot so that's what I voted for.

One-Punch Man, Tokyo Ghoul and Hoshi no Samidare are seinen?! I've always thought they were shounen.

I have to chose between Berserk, Samidare and Monster??
CanĀ“t I take them all?
The only good thing is GUNNM LO is not in list, other way I will really be unable to chose.

I don't really feel qualified to vote, as I've read only one of the listed series, so I'll refrain this round. Seinen is the demo I'm most deficient in, so I guess it's to be expected. My current favorite is Boku Dake Ga Inai Machi, though, which I hope will take off in popularity once the anime airs. :3 This one really resonated with me, both as a writer and a human being, so I hope it eventually gets some recognition.

While I've read Monster and acknowledge that it's an ambitious and lovingly-crafted work, I don't think it's anywhere near "masterpiece" level. I think it really missed the mark on its theme, which, as a huge Shelley fan, I found hard to overlook. The fatal flaw of Frankenstein was that he was arrogant and overstepped his boundaries as a human by creating life. Then, when push came to shove, he completely shirked his responsibility as a creator, effectively proving that humans shouldn't have such power to begin with. With Tenma, though, the guy is a surgeon. He's supposed to save lives. He shouldn't have held himself responsible for saving the life of a child who would grow up to be a psychopath. Unlike Frankenstein, he didn't willfully create a monster, so the whole fatal flaw aspect is out the window.

And, aside from all my literary complaints, I found the story needlessly cluttered with side characters and subplots and didn't find it particularly engaging in its own right. bigrazz But that's just my silly opinion~

I'm gonna be like crazyboutcute and refrain from this vote too since Seinen is the one demo that I'm deficient in for the classics/mainstream. I've read most classics/mainstream manga in the other demos, but Seinen is just too big. I adore most of the things I've read that are Seinen, it's just most of them are less well known. I mean, of the manga I suggested for it, the only one that was close to being top 5 was Otoyomegatari.

I'm so glad Vagabond made it to the poll! It's not getting a lot of votes though... Too bad, this manga has become really important to me and I do think it's because it truly is a masterpiece.

My second favorite, Vinland Saga, is not doing much better... Oh well, at least I'm glad it's on the poll too.

I guess Berserk is gonna be the winner... It's not that I don't like it, I do, but it just makes me feel that people enjoy gore and violence way too much. I guess that explains why Tokyo Ghoul is so high, too.

Voted for Berserk. I have read most of the titles in the polland enjoyed them except Kingdom and Liar Game.

PS: Kingdom and Liar Game have the most annoying main character. Their personality is so one dimensional that they don't feel like seinen characters at all.

Eh, I can't vote.

Even if you added the next in lines (Otoyomegatari, Real, 20th Century Boys and Kiseijuu) and other stories by the same authors (Spirit Circle, Historie) on top of that, I would still not be able to make a top 10 and "drop" 6.

They are all too good for me to choose some above the others.

I guess I really love seinen. <3

Well...I voted for Berserk. And by looking at readership, it's easy to tell, that it's going to win.
Then, only 2nd to it will be One Punch Man(it's a masterpiece, believe me!).
Sad, 20th Century Boys didn't make the cut. If it was a Ongoing series the story would've been different. But, still! Wonder how did it ended up losing to Oyasumi Punpun...Weird.

Now, talking about Tokyo Ghoul:re sequel of Tokyo Ghoul. The sequel only does a timeskip.
So, yeah. Having one in the list basically means having bot. Plus, it's not very long from the time :re started. After 1 or two year, the story might be different.

This poll is balanced. Including recent ongoing ones. Quite satisfactory.

Lots of good series but Monster is a classic.

I had a giant obsession about half of these series, it just might kill me to choose one. The other half, are recommendations for me to read next.

I tried to read berserk a few times but it didn't interest me at all. I don't understand why there are so many people that likes it. confused
