Tags are per user based categories/grouping options.


Currently fully implemented, suggestions on improvement are welcome.

You can:

  • add tags to an anime
  • vote up or down for a tag
  • list anime with the same tags
  • request edit/delete for tags
  • blacklist tags
  • mark tags as spoiler (per anime or globally)

Adding your own Anime Tags

Tagname - Lower-case / British English

Differing from category names (e.g. "Violent Retribution for Accidental Infringement" or "Sudden Girlfriend Appearance") that use a book title caps spelling, the anime tags are spelled lower-case by default in British English!

Tagname Rules

To ensure tag naming consistency, please abide by these rules:

  • Tag names are basically all lower-case, just like they would be used in sentences.
  • Countries / languages: E.g. Spain, French, Japanese
  • Abbreviations are kept all upper-case, e.g. SMS, CG, OP, ED, 3D.
  • Names (e.g. movies, book titles): Cap the first letter of the names, e.g. Blade Runner, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?
  • Japanese words are spelled all upper-case.
  • Avoid:
  1. redundant use of existing category names - set the category instead!
  2. redundant use of character tags, e.g. character names, voice actors, directors, anime specific organisations, fannames, etc.
  3. all upper-case tag names, e.g. NEVER -> never
  4. avoid excessive use of ! or ?, e.g. blah!!! -> blah!
  • Please try to be objective when creating tag names, e.g. "this show is crap" will certainly not help and be deleted.


When adding a new tag name, please add a description text as well. This helps all the users out there understand why you defined the tag, and will make your tags all the more valuable and useful:

  • Use British English (no fancy casing)!
  • Try to describe the intent / meaning of your tag as clearly as possible.

Note: Tag maintainers are much more likely to delete an obscure tag that does not have a description.

Global Spoiler? / Local Spoiler?

A tag can very well be a huge spoiler. To avoid giving away information you can either check mark it as a global spoiler (tag name is always considered to be a spoiler) or as a local spoiler (tag name is only a giveaway for the current anime).

When suggesting a tag name change, add a descriptive comment in the text box explaining your reasons.
