Why is it tagged as romance in here? I have read upto 7 volumes and there's no sign of romance yet. Its misleading because, I was looking forward to atleast a little romance between saya and Mills. But nothing happened. The only romance in it has been between the badguys, Leila and Krayz, and I dont give a crap about them. So I think its better to remove that romance tag.

You can always remove it yourself if you think it shouldn't be there. But the romance tag isn't included only if there's anything going on between the protagonists - even if there is a prominent love affair between antagonists, the series will still be tagged as such. It matters little whether the reader wants to see the romance or not.

Anyway, the series is not completed yet - so how can you say for sure that there won't be anything between Saya and Mills in later volumes?

Oh, I didnt know I could remove the tag myself. How do I do that?

And even the romance between Krayz and Leila isnt that prominent to be called romance at all. Also, in most mangas that I have seen as tagged in Bakamanga Updates, usually mean the romance between protagonists or involving atleast one of the protagonists. Because its simple logic that people dodnt really care about Bad Guys.

Calstine has a point.

If you haven't read up to volume 14 to know whether there's romance between Saya and Mills, you should leave it alone.

No, the OP is right. I am pretty sure that if a genre does not highly involve the main characters within 7 volumes, you may as well dismiss it as irrelevant. That is like saying Ichigo 100%, a comedy, romantic drama manga, is horror because the male and female leads walk alone in the forest once, and she gets scared.
