There are a lot of people who become confused when they see some labels on the type of anime that are available. There are some that are labeled shounen while there are also others that are labeled seinen. Those that are shounen are meant for boys. This means that the anime that are included on this list may have a “cleaner” content as compared to those that are in the seinen content which is meant for men.

There are also other categories that are made for girls that may be full of cute stories. There are also some anime series that are specifically meant for women. Which type of anime would you like?

Just as in literature, there are specific words that are used to define certain sections of anime. Just like libraries have a childrens, fiction and non fiction section, anime will be separated into different subjects. The terms used to describe anime are josei, shoujo, seinen and shoujo.

These terms are used to classify which anime is for adults, children and men and women. The term shoujou is used to mean anime which is for girls, shounen is used to mean for boys, seinen is used for men and josei is used for women.
