I still don't know why MAL can't implement an include AND exclude genres at the same time in advanced search. We're still limited to include OR exclude, I hope this gets implemented this year at least.

I have also always wondered this, this is such a small change that could improve the search function a lot.
when ur about to have a refreshing sip of earl grey tea and someone says "traps are gay"

Honestly, MAL. Get your shit together. These kinds of suggestions shouldn't even be needed, considering how utterly basic this function is.

I so much agree with this. Like how hard can it be? I've seen a whole bunch of threads suggesting this that have just been ignored, sadly.

So many have been suggesting adding more genres and adding stuff like this. My anime list needs a genre overhaul.

What people want to add are subgenres and not genres. "Stuff like this" is a basic thing on every anime/manga site, heck even kissanime/manga has it

Just use "Exclude genres selected" and check every single box. Then uncheck the boxes for the genres you want included. Don't be lazy.

Do you even realize how half-assed your suggestion is? Think harder, don't be lazy.

This isn't a solution as it forces you to show only the things you don't want the anime to have but the results could still exclude the things you do want it to have.

For example, if I want an action+comedy+romance anime and those are the only genres I don't exclude from the search, the results could include animes that ONLY have comedy OR action OR romance, and not all 3.

I'm convinced that because of how virtually nothing has changed in years this site is operated on spaghetti code making any changes/implementations virtually impossible so all suggestions just get ignored

this is amazing idea. I sometimes go to KissAnime or KissManga to search for anime or manga just because they have this feature on it. It would be wonderful if I can do it here so I don't give them traffic

The reason I created new topic is that this feature is already exists on Seasonal Anime page and you can include and exclude genres at the same time

And the userscript (https://greasyfork.org/en/scripts/581-mal-series-filter) mentioned in those topics has been deleted and can't be used...

I don't think it's that hard to be added also on Anime Search and Manga Search pages when it already exists on Seasonal Anime page...
