Thanks to the older target audience, seinen shows tend to be much more sophisticated and mature than their shonen counterparts. Much more attention is paid to the plot and the interaction between characters than to action and fights[[note]]That doesn't mean seinen series don't have excellent action scenes though, [[Manga/{{Berserk}} many of them]] have extremely detailed and excellently drawn action scenes.[[/note]], which are the main attraction for most viewers, and the characters are well fleshed out. The latter trait often leads to confusion of seinen with [[ShoujoDemographic Shoujo]] but the key difference is that seinen [[SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism does not idealize romance, instead opting for more realistic and pragmatic approach to relationships]]. Realism is indeed the calling card of seinen shows, commonly earning them the acclaim for their depth and maturity and MultipleDemographicAppeal.

* ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'': This series is lauded for its realistic depiction of war, with the war in question being human against [[ToServeMan human-eating]] mindless giants. A majority of the named characters are either [[MauveShirt Mauve Shirts]] or [[ShellShockedVeteran nigh-Shell Shocked Veterans]]. About 90% of the unnamed characters are RedShirts or nameless titans. Plot points involve sexual slavery, child soldiers, cultists, corrupt police, [[CastingCouch casting couches,]] corrupt government officials, and huge conspiracies, all of which are ''very'' seinen in their approach. It's also known for showing that WarIsHell in every sense imaginable, and that there's no such thing as a HeroicSacrifice, brutally deconstructing that very trope. However, the characters are rather idealistic, most of them are either teens or children, and they seem to run on sheer determination most of the time. Plus, it runs in Bessatsu Shonen Magazine, so it's a moot point.

** Also, seinen usually more detailed in philosophical themes moreso than shounen works, which normally fall in the grey side of morality. Common philosophical themes include [[NecessarilyEvil consequentialism]] (''LightNovel/FateZero'' and ''Anime/CodeGeass''), desconstruction of [[ForHappiness utilitiarianism]] (LightNovel/FateZero) or existentialism (''Anime/CowboyBebop'').
