Hi to all,
I am new to the forum and manga in general. I see that this website organizes manga by different genres and you can search by them. One of the genres they list is "Fantasy". Their definition of "Fantasy" is a little vague so I was wondering if someone might elaborate more on the meaning of "Fantasy" for me as it relates to manga in general and/or what it means in relation to this website.

Thank you

It's no different than the general interpretation of fantasy: mythological creatures, worlds that couldn't exist here with dragons, harpies, wizards, etc.

A manga with the fantasy tag will often have people with magical powers of some sort and creatures that don't exist in the real world. If that helps any.

Magic is usually involved, occasionally sword and sorcery type stories.
