Thankfully some entries have changed over the past couple of weeks, but yeah, for the most part, it's the same list with some minor differences.
"Ousama Game was a mistake." UPDATE: "Mahou Shoujo Site was, somehow, an even bigger mistake."

-Me, and probably every single person who watched those shows.

I do not agree. Ghoul is just a typical shounen with some gore to appeal to edgy teens and to pretend to be mature. OPM has basically everything every other shounen has. Just because its a parody doesn't make it any different.

Oh well, I look at we qualities of the work, you look at what they say on a label or something. ''Shounen'' has evolved into a genre with certain qualities to be expected, while seinen is still just an age rating. Just because a shounen has too much blood to be sold as a shounen, doesn't make it any less of a shounen.

But hey, if it makes you happy:

How can Shonen been transformed into a genre when other demographics also do the same things content wise it does? Also note that battle manga isn't everything that Shonen offers.

OPM is regularly published in shounen magazines as well, so it counts as shounen and seinen.

Nope, that are special chapters. Their objective is getting more people to know the work by showing it in other magazines(it doesn't matter what demographic they are, but mainly the genre), basically advertisement. It happens with a lot of series, even shonen series appearing in Seinen magazines. For example: Ore Monogatari got released in Weekly Shonen Jump in a crossover with Nisekoi, and Nisekoi appearaed in Bestuma(a shoujo magazine) in another crossover with Ore Monogatari.

One Punch Man is right now totally a Seinen Series, if we talk about the source material intent!

It would be a better argument if you talked that One Punch Man in the west is released in English Weekly Shounen Jump. So for viz its being directed to the Teenage demographic.

My god, there are people that, still on this year, believe that shounen or seinen are genres or that they have some "qualities to be expected".

There are far more manga than the ones published in Shonen Jump.

Dude take a look at the seinen category.http://myanimelist.net/manga/genre/41 looking at the list should completely destroy your definition of what a seinen magazine is. The only thing I will say is that in a seinen magazine the mangaka has a bit more freedom to do what they want to do. For eg. Showing nipples, but even these days a lot of shounen magazine are giving mangaka all the freedom they want.

Basically don't take everything literally. I'm sure you could pick some shounen series that could fit your definition of a seinen or vice versa. Its far from being black and white. As in simple looking at it as in all shounen manga is for kids and teen, while all seinen manga is for adults, because they are all so mature. It doesn't work like that.

It seems MAL call those series ecchi because they focus in a way or another in sex. If you go to Baka-Updates for example they aren't categorized as ecchi.
To note that Sexaroid came at the same year than Harenchi Gakuen, and it seems like a manga that tackles the concept of androids being used as sex toys. I don't think it really tackles pervertness like ecchi.
The Osamu manga seems like is a sexual dirty comedy. Instead of poop jokes, that the Japanese like, it had sex jokes. I didn't read the book, so I don't know if is in fact that, but if it is, isn't ecchi.

What I know is that at the time the Harenchi Gakuen was mega polemic because of being the first type of manga with this type of content, and so is considered the parent of modern Ecchi/Hentai.
The manga was so polemic to the point where the magazine was forbidden to include its chapters in certain parts of Japan. There was even a Protest against it where a ton of people took the volumes of this series and burn it in the Street. The author supposedly made a horrible ending to this manga, with every character dying in a horrible way(a protests I think) or something like that as a message for those protests.

Most Westerns don't know, but Weekly Shounen Jump is also known by its ecchi titles, and for defusing the genre. The genre in the magazine isn't as predominant as Battle Manga, and the magazine never went as crazy about the genre as other magazines do right now, but WSJ is known to have at least 1 really popular ecchi series at a given time. Shokugeki no Soma, To-Love Ru, I''S, Ichigo 100% and others.

That's not going to happen, some of the earlier volumes are going to drop off the list eventually. Take a look at Tokyo ghoul for eg.
The only way that's possible is if they release all the volumes at the same time.
