Seinen manga (青年漫画) are manga marketed to boys and men old enough to read kanji. In Japanese, the word 'seinen' literally means "youth", but the term "seinen manga" is also used to describe the audience of comics like Weekly Manga Times and Weekly Manga Goraku which are aimed at men on into their 50's. Seinen manga are distinguished from shōnen manga which are for younger boys, as well as seijin-muke manga (成人向け漫画) which focus on sex. Seinen manga can focus on action, adventure, business, comedy, games, relationships or sports, and may have some mild sexual content and strong profanity although it is less overt than in the seijin-muke manga. The female equivalent to seinen manga is josei manga.

Seinen manga have a wide variety of art styles and variation in subject matter. Examples of seinen series include: Akira, Berserk, Battle Royale, Ghost in the Shell, Hellsing, Battle Angel Alita, Maison Ikkoku, and the formerly Shonen manga JoJo's Bizarre Adventure.

A common way to tell if a manga is seinen is by looking at whether or not furigana is used over the original kanji text: if there are furigana on all kanji, the title is generally aimed at a younger audience. The title of the magazine it was published in is also an important indicator. Usually Japanese manga magazines with the word "young" in the title (Weekly Young Jump for instance) are seinen. There are also mixed shōnen/seinen magazines like Champion Red, Gangan Powered and Comp Ace. Other popular seinen manga magazines include Young Magazine, Weekly Young Sunday, Big Comic Spirits, Business Jump, Ultra Jump, and Afternoon.
