    Hi all,

    We've added a another substantial amount of new anime and manga tags recently. 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.

    Some of the tags are undoubtedly more popular in manga than in anime - for example, we only have a few initially tagged in anime for "Boss-Employee Relationship", but there's a ton of manga (mostly Yaois). Others, like Brother Complex, Sister Complex, and Landlords, were already character tags, but are now anime/manga tags as well.

    We especially wanted to focus on fleshing out "cohabitation" type tags this time, which led to quite a few new ones (some of which overlap).


    Lifestyle Change
    ANIME | MANGA

    Characters in these anime undergo a significant lifestyle change. They might be a commoner who becomes royalty, are rich and become poor, or have a sudden change in popularity. They might move from the city to the country, have a significant job change such as leaving the mafia or embark on a new career, or experience other personal changes such as a debilitating injury, becoming a parent, or coming to terms with their sexuality.


    Coworkers
    ANIME | MANGA

    This anime features coworkers: people who work together at a job, usually at the same level in the company hierarchy. The coworkers might be shown in their day-to-day Work Life, or spending their time together with drinks after work, or are shown to be involved in a Workplace Romance.


    Married Life
    ANIME | MANGA

    These anime showcase what it’s like to be married. The couple's married life might include day-to-day tasks, or activities that help strengthen their intimacy inside or outside of the bedroom. Or, the anime might focus on the relationship failing - even divorce.


    Cohabitation
    ANIME | MANGA

    Cohabitation is an arrangement where two people in a relationship, who are not married to each other, live together. These anime showcase the ups and downs of cohabitation, such as the little things that happen in day-to-day life, intimacy, or even breakups. Occasionally, cohabitation can involve more than one person, if they are all living in the same space for the purpose of a romantic relationship.


    Neighbors
    ANIME | MANGA

    This anime features neighbors: people who live in separate apartments, or in separate rooms in a Boarding House, or live in neighboring houses.


    Apartment Life
    ANIME | MANGA

    These anime focus on life in an apartment complex or Boarding House. Typical themes include interactions between Neighbors, landlords or their management of the apartments and tenants, or moving in or out of the complex.


    Roommates
    ANIME | MANGA

    This anime features roommates: unrelated people who live together in a house, a dormitory room, or in an apartment unit. Sometimes referred to as housemates or flatmates. These people might share rent or expenses, or they might be roommates for fantastical reasons, such as an alien or creature that decides to live with a human.


    Boarding School
    ANIME | MANGA

    These anime take place at a boarding school: an institution that acts as both a dormitory and a school for students who live on-premises.


    Mansion
    ANIME | MANGA

    These anime primarily take place in a mansion. These dwellings, usually owned by wealthy people, can be extremely large homes occupied by a single family, or they might be converted for commercial use, such as a Hotel or Boarding House.


    Boss-Employee Relationship
    ANIME | MANGA

    These anime focus on a romantic or sexual relationship between a boss and their subordinate. The bosses might be CEOs, company presidents, or simply the manager in charge. Employees might be secretaries, assistants, or simply a direct report.


    Childhood Friends
    ANIME | MANGA

    These anime primarily focus on one or more childhood friends. The friends might have reunited after a long period of time apart, or they might be characters who start a relationship in a Romanceanime. A Childhood Promise might also be involved.


    Brother Complex
    ANIME | MANGA

    These anime feature Siblings with a Brother Complex: they want nothing more than to ensure the well-being and happiness of their beloved brother, often to an unhealthy or even romantic degree. They're known to be over-protective and jealous of their brother's suitors.


    Sister Complex
    ANIME | MANGA

    These anime feature Siblings with a Sister Complex: they want nothing more than to ensure the well-being and happiness of their beloved sister, often to an unhealthy or even romantic degree. They're known to be over-protective and jealous of their sister's suitors.


    Landlords
    ANIME | MANGA

    These anime feature landlords: people who own or manage a property and its tenants. They might collect rent, perform building maintenance, or conduct routine inspections of the rooms being leased.


    French Revolution
    ANIME | MANGA

    These anime are directly or loosely based on the French Revolution: a period of social and Politicalupheaval that lasted from 1789-1799.


    Commercials
    ANIME | MANGA

    These Promotional anime are commercials for a specific product or service, such as a corporation, a physical release such as a manga volume, or other commercials.


    Voyeurism
    ANIME | MANGA

    Voyeurism is the act of deriving sexual pleasure from secretly spying on others as they engage in intimate activities, such as undressing, or having sex. Characters in these anime are voyeurs.


    BDSM
    ANIME | MANGA

    Characters in these anime participate in BDSM: erotic activities and fetishes such as bondage, domination and submission, sadomasochism, and roleplaying.

    I really love the tag system, really allows one to break down and manage every micro-aspect of content and categories. Good job, dig the organization.
