Manga is immensely popular with young female readers and many of them have been reading manga since it began to be integrated into public library collections in the early s. These readers are now in their late teens and are familiar with manga and comfortable with its format and conventions. It could be expected that they will continue to read manga but be interested in more sophisticated subject matter and narratives.

Those who have been exposed to the Japanese animation medium have at some point come across the terms seinenshounenshoujo and josei. These terms are described as follows:. These are the basic meanings for each of these, so I will now go over the two main demographics I wish to focus on: shounen and seinen.
Seinen manga can focus on action, politics, science fiction, fantasy, relationships, sports, or comedy. The female equivalent to seinen manga is josei manga. Seinen manga have a wide variety of art styles and variation in subject matter.
Compared to shonen, seinen caters to a much smaller viewing crowd, since younger audiences have much more time to spare on anime, which makes them a more attractive target, and thus is slightly less known. Thanks to the older target audience, seinen shows tend to be much more sophisticated and mature than their shonen counterparts. The latter trait often leads to confusion of seinen with Shoujo but the key difference is that seinen does not idealize romance, instead opting for a more realistic and pragmatic approach to relationships. Realism is indeed the calling card of seinen shows, commonly earning them the acclaim for their depth and maturity and Multiple Demographic Appeal.
