Seinen is one of my favorite anime styles — and I was always grateful for sharing in my passion for it. See, Seinen is like Josei and Shounen, The target market will be young adult males (including late-twenties and younger men), but its target audience may include older or younger people, including women. Because, unlike in Shounen, it has no dominant style or subject.
So his can be an introspective 50-episode, psychological, or a one-hour series featuring pretty girls doing nice things.

Berserk is one of the most longevous anime to exist. What started airing in the year 1997, went on a hiatus for almost 20 years. Berserk's ashes in 2016 have several fascinating themes with a mix of gory scenes, intense development of character, and controversial animation. As mankind progressed, so did the animation. Ironically, for Berserk, the older animation remains the one with superior quality. It was one of the best anime of its time and is still loved as a classic. Apart from the animation and plot, it also brings a sense of nostalgia for older anime fans.

"Mushi": the foremost basic sort of life within the world. They exist without any goal or purpose other than simply "being." They are beyond the shackles of the words "good" and "evil." Mushi can exist in innumerable forms and are capable of imitating things from the natural world, such as plants, diseases, and even phenomena such as rainbows.

Detailed information on Mushi is scarce because the bulk of humans are unaware of its existence. So, what are the Mushi, and why are they? this is often the matter that Ginko, the "Mushishi," continually ponders. Mushishi is those that seek Mushi within the hope of understanding their place within the world hierarchy of life.
