Just to be pedantic, shouldn't it be "shoujo-like"?

Yeah, I was about to change it to that; then, I decided to go with Shoujo-esque.
I like that suffix better.

Wait, why are you leaving Shoujo as a tag instead of removing it?

He didn't exactly leave it... Someone labeled a josei series with a "Shoujo" tag, and he changed it to "Josei with Shoujo-esque Story."

The problem was the person didn't understand how to determine the demographics for a series... she changed the genre label from josei to shoujo and added the shoujo category. So, the new category had a justification. There was a problem with shounen and seinen series awhile ago as well, but I don't remember anyone trying to add a category for it... mostly because categories didn't exist at that time.

The latter one only had hentai titles under it.

It has been removed.

Death of Friend
Dead Friend.
They could be merged.

If you think about it, "death of friend" can refer to a friend dying during the series, and "dead friend" just means that there is a dead friend mentioned. The death could have happened before the series takes place.


I'll leave it for someone else to decide.

Could you change this Red Hair into Red Hair Female Lead/s? I've already checked the titles.
I added Red Hair Male Lead/s tag.
And I'm planning to make categories based on the hair color of the protagonists. Is it okay?

Ero-guro tag and Guro tag actually mean the same thing: erotic grotesque nonsense.

They should be merged into Ero-guro.

Death of friend is more of a drama thing where a friend has died.

Dead friend could be a friend of the main character who has died but is still around like as a ghost or a zombie

A) ASDF: My friend QWERTY past away sad

B) ASDF: This is my friend QWERTY he died.
QWERTY: Hi, i am a ghost biggrin

But seeing how Dead Friend is a tag rarely used (8 manga) and that its not being used like i ssaid, i dont think it would be missed

At first I was thinking that guro might mean just grotesque (non-erotic gore, etc.) and so maybe we should leave it, but then if that was true, Guro and Gore tags should be merged. Anyway, as I understand it, guro is just short for ero-guro (which is short for ero guro nansensu, which is waseieigo for erotic grotesque nonsense)--so I'll merge Guro and Ero-Guro into Ero-Guro. (And of course, if I find any non-erotic gore, etc. series listed under Ero-Guro, I'll move them to more appropriate tags.)
