I say no...
No need for that. Seriously, 99.99% of the time you have enough information in the title, series description and the scanlators site to tell. And... euh, just don't read hentai if you're offended by :
  • Rape
  • Incest
  • Tentacles
  • underage sex
  • zoophilia
  • etc...


And if you're going to start with these stuff, we're in for a lot more trouble. I mean, we'd eventually have to filter Guro because people are offended by it...
And then some people find manga involving angels/demons and stuff religiously offensive and then who knows what else some people can find offensive...
Actually, in short? I agree with NeoFireHawk. (euh and I think Kraust too).

gay manga is categorized in japan already, and it's a big category. incest manga probably aren't (not sure) and it's not as big of a category, especially since most manga don't completely center on that while the gay ones do.

This website =/= japan/general public

Would it hurt to gather Manga that center around incest and put it onto that genre?

The people who want to have 'Incest' as a genre, haven't you read the whole thread? There are plenty of arguments why it should not be implemented as a genre.

Edit: Or can't you at least see above your post? Two site admins already said; "No"...

Here "no" usually means no laugh

Well, there was a suggestion to add key words to manga. That could allow you find/filter out incest. Well, this suggestion was ignored laugh and I don't see any more ways to do what you're asking for.

I wouldn't care either way, but I think that it'd be too much work on our already (very) crowded genre selection. If we add incest, we'd have to add rape and other weird love sub-genres.

And besides, is there even enough incest to make an entire new genre for it? Most of the incest out there already implies it in the summary.

I agree completely to Indreju. Filtering keywords (like the reverse of searching for them) would be a brilliant idea! biggrin and if it's minor it could be said in the synopsis "warning: some incest". So the genre wouldn't be altered or over-loaded and people will be able to avoid it eyes

Quote from Laclongquan
And the last words: usually guys did that kind of manga also say something about the content. As far as I remember, there;s no incest manga without some kind of description telling you that.


Well the thing is that I think Incest should be a genre mostly because, personally, after opening the title for a discription, it sort of turns my stomach read or even seeing the manga cover.

I'd prefer incest over yaoi/yuri anyday.

Heh. So many people here seem to equate incest w/ hentai. Haven't you heard of Ed x Al, or the twins in Ouran? Incest is rampant in yaoi/yuri, too. bigrazz

I didn't even realize there wasn't a genre for rape/non-con, until Pomegranate pointed out its lack. Yeah, I just remembered that rape/non-con is rampant in yaoi/yuri, too. bigrazz

Personally, I wouldn't mind seeing a genre for both of these, but since two admins have already said no, that's probably out of the question. I don't really care about reading about it or seeing the image, but it would save me some time when I'm browsing for new things to read. bigrazz

I'm surprised this hasn't been locked yet after it's been rejected so many times...

So. Since this isn't a discussion thread, it's safe to assume that I can lock this now right?
