I'm just a shōjo reader/watcher, with a preference for the older ones.
My manga tags:
— Eros: Manga with a good amount of erotic content, often called « ecchi » or « smut » around here.
— Fantasy: Manga with magic, supernatural elements, and/or set in a different universe than our own.
— Gender bender: Manga that contain one of those thematics as an important element; cross-dressing, transgender, intersex, hermaphrodite, sex-change, body-swap, trans-humanism related to gender, et cætera.
— Historical: Manga set in the past or have a strong focus on historical elements or traditions.
— Horror: Manga with monsters, gore, macabre or scary stuffs.
— Magical Girl: Young girl with magical powers, traditionally with a pink plastic thingy, cute familiar/mascot and such.
— Nekketsu: A word used by Tezuka for describing his initiatic journey manga inspired from Campbell's Monomyth like Shin Takarajima. It is traditionally used for what people here refer as « battle shōnen » (Dragon Ball, Naruto…). For the sake of simplicity, I use it on every saga/epic/adventure manga.
— SF: Science-fiction. Manga set in the future and/or focused on anticipation.
— Shishōsetsu: Literally « I-Novel ». Stories more or less written from the perspective of the author. Usually autobiographical or semi-fictional, it can also be phantasmagorical if based on a dream for example.
— Sport: Self-explanatory right? Although I add to it dance, martial art and games, because hey! Why not?
— Gekiga: A word used to describe realistic and mature manga essentially in the 60s and 70s decades, the first generation of « alternative manga » and « Japanese graphic novels ». For the sake of simplicity I use it on every « alternative manga », notably the ones serialized in A⋅X, Comic Cue, COM and Garo magazines.
— Year 24 (also called the Forty-Niners): A group of influential shōjo mangaka mostly active during the 70s and 80s decades. Known for their innovations and « radicalism ». I'm fan of them. 💕
