Seinen Up - Manly Manga... for Manly Men and the Manga Reading Women that Love Them.
Hosted by Vertical
Presented by Vertical

Most manga readers who only superficially know a thing or two about manga believe the core of this medium is boys comics. That maybe have been true in the 50's and 60's but in this modern age, nothing comes close to seinen (men's or mature) manga. Seinen is the engine of the manga industry now and the only sector that is seeing any revolutionary movement in terms of story-telling and visual art. But men's manga is not only for salarymen anymore. And it is not exclusively for the Japanese either. Ed Chavez guides courageous manga readers into a sophisticated world of comics. Starting from the 19th century and culminating in the modern day titles that give One Piece a run for its money, Manly Manga will redefine comic excellence globally!
