Specifically, let us exclude and include genres. Other websites have it so that if you click once, you include the genre and double click to exclude. Something like this:

Seriously, MAL. Get with the times already.

Though you can do this on Seasonal Anime for every season still isn't a thing on Advanced Search.
Also suggested many times before I think it's good to bump those threads instead of making a new one

I was able to do yours, but I can't merge the ones that predate this thread. Anyway, despite most of the posts being mainly bumps, I think this should be the main thread for this suggestion.

It would be amazing if this was implemented, but considering its been well over a year since the suggestion i'm not getting my hopes up any time soon...

I really just want to filter my list to see what anime that have X in their genre is. How hard is it to make such a function...

How in the blue balls of hell is it still not possible to search by source material?

I was just aware of this problem since I haven't been using the archaic search system much, but wow this is a bad design oversight. I can't fathom how splitting the genre filter into two seperate categories is ever a good idea. Hope this suggestion pulls through.

Wow, it's been awhile since I've logged and post here. The search system is still the same as before
It's more than two years already since I've posted it, time flies.

Same question. I'm not a programmer, but it doesn't seem like a hard thing to add. It would be really helpful if I was able to narrow series down by more than one genre. On a seperate and only slightly related note: Can you add more genres? Like for example "Survival","Cyberpunk","Sci-fi" but without the mechas(more like Dr.Stone, Cells at Work, etc type of stuff).

No-one cares about the suggestions at all. I see no point of this board. No idea will ever be implement, there are no feedbacks at all either..
