I am creating this suggestion topic, so people can make a list of possible useful tags and maybe explain your reasoning (there are a lot of tag topics, this would be one to generate a list).
My first suggestion is age gap, my personal reason is that I don't like romcoms with an age gap when it's a minor and an adult (I don't care if it's two adults thought, like Super no Ura de Yani Sū Futari. But I don't know if it is possible to make two different tags to separate both of them) If anyone else suggests other tags, I will create a list and keep updating this topic


  • Age Gap
  • Age Gap that have adult and minor (have no idea how to call it or if it's possible, but yeah)
  • Netorare
  • Childcare
  • Succubus
  • Assasins
  • Idols
  • Economics
  • False underdog
  • Journey
  • No Plot Armour
  • Female Protagonist
  • Motorsports / Automotive
  • Xianxia
  • Werewolf
  • Educative
  • One-page (mangas with one or two pages per chapter)
  • Hetero
  • Vore
  • journey / "world seeing"
  • tower / dungeon
  • western/eastern esthetics
  • possession
  • kingdom
  • enterprise
  • "Civ-Tech"
  • yandere
  • Slavery

Personally I wish we had a tag for netorare, not just due to the large amount of porn with it but also for the normal manga that also features it. You can clearly see how much it unnerves people by looking at the rating scores of manga that features it. Here's an example: https://mangadex.org/chapter/716debd8-fd54-45ae-8c3d-5657229b3d08 it's the second lowest rated manga on the website.

I'd also appreciate it if we had a way to tag chapters as MTL, but I understand that's a different thing since a manga page can't be tagged with it, it would need a per chapter tag.

What is MTL?

Mtl tagging has been discussed at length in other threads and is not going to happen. Also it would require chapter tags to be a thing.
I wish it was at least possible on the client side, it wouldn't need to be a site wide thing that needed to be agreed upon by everyone. But I guess you can just block groups and achieve the same effect

"Childcare" - there are more and more series focusing on raising children/ taking care of them. I don't see any other tag compelling well for this specific thing, that has become main focus of quite a lot of series.

"Succubus" - is something that is becoming new mainstream type of monster girl (even some guys), similarly to vampire, tho not as global, just Japan. And we have a tag for vampires. Even for Zombies, despite them being less common nowadays, than Succubus.

"Assasins" - probably the fastest rising theme of Action series and very present among new Romance series. For example: Sakamoto Days, Kill Blue, Nezumi's First Love, Spy x Family, Assassin × Cinderella, Kindergarten Wars, Akabane Honeko and many more

"Idols" - I'm the most surprised this one doesn't exist, since it's not even a new trend. Many old and new series focus on idols. Both male and female.

Economics: Stories where economics, trade and merchantry have a large focus.

False underdog: Stories where the main character constantly gets treated like he is weak, except he actually isn't and actually is just overpowered.

Journey: Where the Main character or group is on a journey and travels the world, though with a bit more of a focus on the traveling part, like Kino's Journey or Bard Loen.

No Plot Armour: Stories where being part of the main cast offers little to no protection against dying to a degree surpassing normal amounts of deaths (Like mentor, love interests in the early chapters, etc.) Generally ones with the anybody can die feeling.

Motorsports / Automotive:
it's pain in the ass to browse those manga in the sea of regular sports manga
there aren't that many tagged there, but for now you can try Mangaupdates in the meantime if you haven't
https://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?category=Racing
https://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?category=Motorcycle+Racing

that said, i'd like to see a Xianxia tag instead of having all cultivation novels being grouped into Wuxia. Murim is just basically the korean take on chinese Xianxia (koreans say as much too), so murim tag would be unnecessary and just tagged as Xianxia or stay under Wuxia.

would also like to see werewolf tag, though it's not as common as vampire.

Educative : For series with significant pedagogical content. Encompass both mangas where story is at the first plan and learning is secondary (Dr Stone, Moyashimon, Otomeyogatari), those where pedagogical content at the core of the manga (Hataraku Saibou and spin-off, Heaven's design team), and textbooks-like mangas ("The Manga Guide to Linear Algebra" and the likes). There is a lots of these in mangadex !

Are we allowed to compare to other sites? MangaOwl having the user tags made browsing and exploration much better and easier. While I think tags should be better maintained/vetted, being able to read one story about, say, relatives raising kids and find other similar manga without needing to go to an external website and search makes things easier.

Hum... Well, if your suggestion would change the whole structure it's better to explain in another topic (I am not from the staff, I am just trying to center all the tags suggestions in one single top. I think it would be easier to the Staff add a few if it's like this)

I'm just comparing how more detailed tags allow for better browsing experiences!

A Hetero tag, the ability to filter out works which contain it would be useful. More than once I've come across a manga with the girls' love tag only for it to be mostly hetero. There should be a way to know if a manga is purely yuri/yaoi beyond researching it or just hoping for the best.
