The term shōnen, shonen, or shounen manga (少年漫画 shōnen manga?) refers to manga marketed to a male audience aged roughly 10 and up. The Kanji characters (少年) literally mean "few" and "year", respectively, where the characters (漫画) generally mean "comic". The complete phrase literally means "young person's comic" or simply "boys comic".
Quote:
Seinen manga (青年漫画?) is a subset of manga that is generally targeted at a 18–30 year old male audience, but the audience can be older with some manga aimed at businessmen well into their 40s. In Japanese, the word Seinen means "young man" or "young men" and is not suggestive of sexual matters.
Just a wiki quote.

Obviously by action I don't mean hentai left and right with people screwing their brains out after IS fights. What I mean is a little bit more mature content.
You know like Ichika growing a brain and seeing/responding at least sometimes to girls advances. Or intimate situations/accident being a little more fleshed out.
Marketing for 10y old boys and 20+ men is kinda different don't you think. Mangas like Nozoki Ana, Love Junkies, Velvet Kiss and so on, have sex and mature content almost in every chapter, yet they are still Seinen and not Hentai.
That is in manga market as I don't read raw novels, but still novels for a little more adult market should still be you know more adult than typical butterflies and ponies stuff. You know people dying, guts flying, someone in the background screwing, schemes and stuff like that.

@Xaturas. Don't expect it to be like High School DxD lol . Fans will riot with an established harem like Ichika's and an established blockhead like Ichika.

Nah obviously we all know that .
But man can still hope right?
I just expect like 10-30% more mature content. Nothing out of the radar but just a little bit more above the Teletubbies level .

That would ruin the forever-innocent-dense-Ichika image. I'd be mad.

...That's not how it works either; An author doesn't magically change his style just because his publication has changed =_= They're not a computer program which you can go into options and switch the settings (Well, most of them anyway.... >.>)

Putting aside sexual themes and bloody violence, if he really wanted to make Ichika any more than what he is, or develop the story into something mature- there's no need to be told- "It's Super Seinen Time!"

Oh please, Izuru-sensei!!! No more denseness from Ichika, or I might lump him with Tohyama Kinji for being dense with girls. Time for some development on that department you know?

Ichika being compared to Kinji?

That's a big insult. Kinji isn't dense. His in DENIAL! Ichika is DENSE!

And I don't think that IS will ever dwell in a mature way like dxd or hyaka hyoran way. As long as Ichika is the MC we will still get girls fan service and mecha fan service

Anonymous_Slider read the LN's again Tohyama Kinji and Orimura Ichika cant even be compared .

At the very least HSS kinji would do his girls.

Whether it's denial or dense (It's arguable if there's a different at all since neither would acknowledge their feelings), the end result is still a cup of RAGE for anyone reading it.

Kinji is tsundere for Aria while Ichika is ha? harem?

at least Kinji can understand an advancement but since girls are dangerous for him. He is in denial that this is bad and he has smell fetish for girls -_- while Ichika without need to argue.... was the new level of denseness on its own. Though I think Kinji can unleash more rage factors for fans than Ichika but still its arguable. Using Kinji to compare to Ichika as dense is just unwise comparison.

Didn't read it but as far as I remember Natsuru did get with that short haired girl in kampfer in the end. So no even he is less dense. Ichika is a class of its own.

^ Yeah, so far, Ichika has as much chances to end up with a girl as his chances to have a cheeseburger as soul mate.

Hey, IS hasn't ended yet, so cut the guy some slack. If he still doesn't get with anyone by the end, then he's the worst.

Or the greatest. Managed to resist the temptation of not getting with any of these cute girls.
