Another artist lost too soon: Jiro Taniguchi, known for the remarkable richness of his backgrounds, has passed away at 69.
His works such as The Walking Man, The Summit of the Gods and The Magic Mountain, stood apart in a genre sometimes seen as rooted in extreme violence and pornography.
The Summit of the Gods seems to be seinen genre.
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 into their 50s.
Seinen manga can focus on action, politics, science fiction, fantasy, relationships, sports, or comedy and while they may contain sexual content (as well as other mature material), it remains predominantly more infrequent than in the seijin-muke manga.
What the Hell? Did writer of the news article got genres mixed up or what?
On the second thought, Berserk is also in seinen genre, and it is pretty much extreme in violence & porn.
