Western

Westerns are anime that embody the spirit of the Old West where cowboys, gunfights, and justice are typical themes. The setting may vary anywhere from the traditional western setting to space or fantasy worlds. Governments rarely have control of these unstable areas, forcing men and women to take the law into their own hands. Characters tend to be strongly concerned with individuality and making their own way in the world, and conflicts tend to be personal, and often violent.

Work Life

These anime showcase the daily life of an employee, whether they are a waitress, a salaryman or beyond. Office politics, relationships, daily duties or little things the characters do to pass the time are frequent themes in these titles.

World Masterpiece Theater

World Masterpiece Theater, also known as the Classic Family Theater Series, is a Japanese TV program that showcases an animated version of a classical story. The program was started in 1969 and had a ten year hiatus from 1997 to 2007.

World War 2

These anime take place in or around the time frame of World War II, a period of great upheaval and change across Europe, America, and Asia. They may focus on events that were part of the war itself, or deal with its build-up, aftermath, or impact away from the front lines.

Wrestling

Wrestling is the focus of these anime. Training and competing in tournaments or championships are common themes in sports titles, as well as individual or team spirit, or being an underdog who goes against the odds to succeed.

Yakuza

These anime feature the Yakuza: Japanese gangs that follows a strict code of honor, similar to the Samurai.

Yaoi

Yaoi, known as Boys' Love or BL in Japan, is a genre mostly written by women, for women, that depicts homosexual relationships between men. Japan typically uses this single category for all forms of these relationships, sexual or not. In the West, the term Shounen-ai categorizes stories that focus on the emotional aspects of the relationships, while Yaoi categorizes more of the sexual aspects and explicit content. As Anime-Planet's audience is mostly based in the West, we use the Western definition for both Yaoi and Shounen-ai.

Yaoi Hand Syndrome

Characters in these anime have excessively large hands, often reminiscent of Facehuggers or having fingers that are tentacle-like in nature. This sort of character design is most common in Yaoi anime (though isn't exclusive to the genre), and thus is referred to as Yaoi Hand Syndrome or simply Yaoi Hands.

Yuri

Yuri is a genre that depicts homosexual relationships between women. Japan typically uses this single category for all forms of these relationships, sexual or not. In the West, the term Shoujo-ai categorizes stories that focus on the emotional aspects of the relationships, while Yuri categorizes more of the sexual aspects and explicit content. As Anime-Planet's audience is mostly based in the West, we use the Western definition for both Yuri and Shoujo-ai.

Zombies

Zombies can take many forms: from slow, shuffling and mindless undead, to relatively normal-looking humans, to anything in between. What they have in common is they're reanimated corpses brought back to life through an outside force. Who's hungry for some brains?!
