I threw some definitions of Formats, not sure if they are 100% correct or succinct enough.

Might as well add "Related Manga" Definitions as well

Some I am sure of...

Based on
The original work the comic is the fan-creation of.

Doujinshi
Fan-created work of the comic.

Colored
Colored colored release of the comic.

Monochrome
Black and White release of the comic.

Prequel
Comic that proceeds this one.

Sequel
Comic that succeeds this one.

Prolly will need to edit these :0

If you do, pair the opposites, that you set on each series.

From the discord pins by AntsyLych:
prequel <> sequel
monochrome <> colored
serialization <> preserialization
based_on <> doujinshi
adapted_from <> spin_off
main_story <> side_story
same_franchise <> same_franchise
shared_universe <> shared_universe
alternate_story <> alternate_story

I see that some tags for themes should belong to genre and vice versa. Main example is superheroes tag is a genre, but martial artists tag is a theme. The question should be asked would be what makes superheroes a genre and not a theme? I don't see anywhere MD's definitions for genre and theme.

Personal opinion: some tags can belong to both catagories.

I think the general idea is that genres are broader / more generic whereas themes are more specific, though I completely agree that the difference is poorly defined and not very useful.
