You shonenfags have been BTFO in many other threads, but the core of the argument is thus:>Its the demographics that count!
No, its not. HxH has been running for 20 years, so the core demographic is 20 to 40 years old. I can post a pic of a recent survey done in Japan that says the core demographic for OP is 25 to 40. >Its published in WSJ!!
It doesnt matter where a work is published, this is an old concept from the 70s and 80s. WSJ is the most popular manga magazine in Japan and its read by both adults and teenagers.>muh furigana
The alternate furigana text is often something else entirely, and not necessarily katakana for some English equivalent, but text in hiragana. Sometimes those furigana subtitles in HxH even includes kanji like ?????. The furigana in HxH were something completely unrelated in most cases, and often, the furigana (which is supposed to give the reading for complicated kanji in the first place) have kanji themselves.
So, if its not one of those 3 things that define seinen, what is it? Its the themes and the in-depth analysis of them. HxH does this on a seinen level. That's why its considered a seinen.
