    Hi all,

    We've added a substantial amount of new anime and manga tags recently, with more coming in the future. As a reminder, you can post suggestions for new tags, as well as anime/manga that are missing specific tags, in the tag section of the forum. Help out by posting missing ones in the above section! Some of the tags are still a bit thin.

    And remember that you can check out recently added tags anytime by using the "date added" sort on the tags page.
