You're probably familiar with the frequent announcements of new anime and manga tags. Today we've launched a large amount of new character tags as well! Character tags can be helpful to try to remember an anime you've seen when you only remember something about the cast, for finding cosplay ideas, or simply for finding another title to watch or read. As a reminder, you can post suggestions for characters that are missing specific tags, in the update a character thread. And remember that you can check out recently added tags anytime by using the "date added" sort on the tags page. Non-Binary Gender Non-binary individuals do not identify as exclusively male or female. They may identify as a third gender (known as X-gender in Japan), as having more than one gender, or no gender. Examples of non-binary identities include agender, genderfluid and bigender. These characters either explicitly or implicitly identify as non-binary. For more information see this Wikipedia article, and read about how we tag LBGT-related content on Anime-Planet. -- This might become a gender option rather than a tag, and we're also looking into adding a "none" gender for genderless characters (for example, much of the cast of Land of the Lustrous) . We are currently limiting application of this tag to cases that can be proven as canon: either the character stating that they are non-binary, or another character stating it/explaining it. Characters such as Hange or Nanachi are not tagged because their gender is simply ambiguous and unknown, versus being what they identify as. The characters in Land of the Lustrous are not tagged non-binary because they are genderless. Elemental Powers These character possess elemental powers such as fire, water, wind and lightning. They may use these abilities for defense purposes, to attack enemies, or for other reasons.
