Looking for more seinen anime with manly men.
« on: March 15, 2017, 01:52:23 pm »
I grew up on Cowboy Bebop, Golgo 13, Space Adventure Cobra, Crusher Joe and Midnight Eye Goku.  So, I have been looking for more of the same.  I do not want insecure teenage protagonists in my anime.

Any brilliant ideas?

I haven't checked genre classification, but I'd personally consider these seinen:
Black Lagoon
Gurren Lagann (warning: some scenes depict a whiny little brat called Simon - pronounced sea moan - , but don't let it put you off, the show is still worth watching)
Armitage III

Ooh .Ooh.
Gotta add FMAB (FMA is more Shounen than seinen)

If that ain't "manly" enough, then no anime will satisfy you unless it is BL :wink:

Berserk (original, not the CGI trash that came out recently)
Psycho Pass
91 Days (lead is a bit young)

And then you find out that Kamina's just better at hiding it.  :laugh:
