I think It might be a good idea to add a few more category's such as:

(Weak/strong) Emotionally (male/female) Lead
(Weak/strong) Physically (male/female) Lead

This might not be that important but I find it sometimes when looking through series that when one of the standard Weak lead character tag gets used sometimes gets confused between emotional weak and physically weak. This could help narrow down series to exactly what someone is looking for maybe?

Edit: I'm sure other people have ideas for other categories they might want so feel free to post any other ideas.

I've wanted to split the weak male/female lead and strong male/female lead into physical and emotional versions for a while now, the trouble is just in actually doing so. I remember a month or two ago trying to do it, thinking it couldn't possibly be very difficult (the plan was to go down the list of series with these tags and replace the general weak/strong tag on each with the applicable modified version), but I was surprised to find out that I had a lot of trouble figuring out what the applicable replacement tag was (I don't know most series in enough detail, so I have to try to figure it out based on the description), and I gave up on it before long. I think that it would be an improvement to split it like that, though, so I'll give it another try sometime.

By the way, please post suggestions/comments like this one about categories in the categories bugs thread here: http://www.mangaupdates.com/showtopic.php?tid=16859.

Ah, before I forget, based on the way you phrased your post it seems like you might not know that you can add categories yourself--you don't need to ask the staff. So if you find a series where one of the emotionally/physically weak/strong male/female lead tags would be good, just go ahead and add it.
