Re: Request: Additional Character Search Tags
I don't think the list is as bad as it appears. I can see a use for a gang leader tag and mafia member is already covered by gangster. Villain/Bad Guy and Villainess/Bad Girl would normally be useless because there are so many anime in which these roles are vague and subjective but there are also lots of anime in which these roles are very clear cut. If you limit the tag to those kinds of anime (kids shows and many shonens) and define it as referring to those stereotypical evil for the sake of evil bad guys I suppose it could work. I just don't know how practical that is.
I can see where he is coming from with crook. There are lots of rotten conmen and schemers and white-collar crooks in anime. So I can see some merit in it but all of these things would have to be carefully defined and worked out. I don't see any use for a kidnapper tag though.
