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.

Tesla: If an immortal vampire dies in a virtual world-

Magnus: -does he make a sound?

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