These anime are based on a Light Novel.

These anime are based on a manga.

These anime are based on an Eroge: a Japanese visual novel that contains erotic content. Eroges are also known as hentai games or H-games.

These anime are based on video games that can be played on consoles, on the computer, or in specialized machines such as arcade games or Pachinko machines. For phone and other games, see Based on a Mobile Game.

These anime include frequent, explicit sexual content predominantly aimed at a male audience in Seinen, Yuri, or Bara titles. Sex is used as a plot device and is a primary focus in many of these anime. Like Hentai, Borderline H anime show prolonged sexual acts; but Borderline H anime censor genitalia and other elements with white outlines, mosaics, or opacity.

These anime aim to make you laugh through satire, parody, humorous observations, slapstick scenarios, or absurd antics. Bonus points for spitting your drink all over your screen!

Dragons are huge and mighty serpentine mythological creatures, often seen as being magical in nature. These anime center on the impact of dragons - whether reimagined, extinct, or living and breathing alongside humans, and may feature dragons as major characters.

Constant panty shots, bouncing breasts and dubious camera angles are hallmarks of an Ecchi title. These titles are usually sexualized and designed to titillate, depicting perverted themes and focusing heavily on the female body. Nosebleeds, suspicious hand positions, faceplanting into bosoms, expressive and exaggerated body parts and other tropes characterize this genre. Ecchi is all about fanservice, while Borderline H and Smut titles focus more on sexual content.

These anime depict an explicit level of sexual content, indicated by one or more of the following: detailed, graphic sequences; a high frequency of sexual content, even if content isn't explicit; prevalent nudity; Fetish-based, graphic sequences; or simulated sexual acts.

A harem includes three or more characters who potentially show romantic interest in a male protagonist. The sex, gender, or orientation of the harem members is irrelevant as long as they exclusively, or at least primarily, are vying for the affections of the same individual - who may or may not reciprocate towards one, several, or none of these romantic rivals.

Magic is the use of gestures, incantations, or rituals to harness some kind of supernatural power. Characters in Magic anime tend to go by titles such as witch, wizard, mage, or sorcerer, and may be occupied with learning to harness these abilities or with finding magical relics or battling against strange entities... or other magic users.

These anime showcase maids: women - or rarely men - who are employed to help cook, clean, run errands, or anything else that their master requires. The anime might also feature a Master-Servant Relationship. Alternately, maids might be employees of a theme cafe where cosplay is required to please customers.

These anime include mature or controversial topics that are not suitable for children, such as teen pregnancy, Sexual Abuse, prostitution, Drug Use, or others.

Characters in these anime attend a newly co-ed school that was recently all-girls or all-boys.

These titles have a mild amount of nudity, either because of Ecchi or light fanservice, mild Sexual Content, or simply a one-off shower scene or hot springs visit. 

These anime showcase the joys and hardships of falling in love, whether a schoolgirl has an unrequited crush on her senpai, a Love Triangle occurs within a group of friends, or rivals become lovers through competition or their intense passion for each other.

Romantic comedies, also known as romcoms, are a type of comedy anime focused on relationships. Typically, they feature characters who meet and ultimately fall in love, but can sometimes focus on already-coupled characters whose relationships grow throughout the story. The progression of their relationship is usually what provides the comedy aspect; for example, through the obstacles the couple faces such as a love triangle, or through mismatched personalities, misunderstandings, or other common tropes.

These comedy anime are parodies that use irony, humor, and exaggerations to criticize or mock culture, politics, or other topical issues.

These anime have a mild amount of sexual content, such as light Nudity or implied/off-camera sex acts. 

Slice of life, or "nichijou" in Japanese, refers to events that occur on a daily basis such as getting ready for the day, light chores, enjoying a hobby, or preparing meals. These events differ depending on setting, but above all else are considered to be ordinary, everyday actions that don’t always follow a central plot. The related tags School Life and Work Life focus on ordinary events that take place in a school or work setting, respectively.

These anime explore the video game industry, from typical console games, to mobile games, or even erogames. Common themes include the creative and design process, development lifecycle, or Voice Acting.

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.
