yea i agree with mystichead about tragedy if fine as a genre cuz drama and tragedy are way different since tragedy genre for me stands mostly for when people die in a story, drama is just is just ah ...um... will u know i rally cant think of anyting for the time. >o<

When I think of a "topical" manga, it kind of brings to mind a manga that is about current events and issues. (that would be kind of weird) But "themed" can be a definition for "topical", I guess... in the sense of "related to a topic".

I guess tragedy would be a subtype of drama.

Manick, honestly I find this genre useless. It's very unclear to the reader and even more confusing to search a series under this genre. Specific subgenre like "Music", "Sports" or "Game" makes way more sense.

i think it would be better to just have sports, music, cooking, etc than topical.

topical makes me think of salve that you would put on a burn.

sub genres, while seemingly uselees or viewed as clutter, actually help for searching for a manga.

like NANA is a shoujou comedic romance series however it is also about music. that is a theme/topic that is very strong in that series so it would have the music tag.

I think you should just add a number of new genres, insted of such an open one.. It can be anything, so go figure what you're looking for..

As others said, genres such as "music", (we have sports, so why not adding music.. ) I have seen some that can go really well with that.

If it's hikaru no go and yu gi ho- you can put "board games" - although that sounds really funny..~~

Why not use the simpler "dedicated", "specific" or "specialized" ?

It is similar to drama in some way but not so much that it's a sub-genre. How else can you describe Othello, Full Moon wo Sagashite and The Demon Ororon? Because those are true tragedies.
