Not exactly a common view in anime, or japanese mythology for that matter. Tactics, Yu Yu Hakusho, Inuyasha, et cetera -- the demon characters in those definitely aren't fallen angels. ;)

Nope -- Description from Wikipedia: "A shinigami (usually translated as "god of death") is an entity in Japanese folklore that is responsible for seeing to it that a person dies at his appointed time and subsequently guiding his spirit to be judged in the afterlife. In this respect, shinigami are si...

Instead, pick a selection of anime you're familiar with, and try to think of how you could break them into smaller, more detailed groups. Er... I would break them into smaller, more detailed groups by sorting them by the genre, and then by the audience. Exactly what has been done so far. I fail to ...

Adventure should probably be a subgenre of Action, too. It always seems to have its roots in Action; I can't think of a single anime where it's otherwise... Horror as a subgenre of Fantasy? Doesn't seem right to me. Much of horror anime is actually science fiction based, and besides, Horror is one o...

Heh. I was going to suggest *exactly* that earlier, but decided against it because it seemed like four new fields should be enough -- five seems bit like an overkill, and seemed like I was sidetracking from the topic. ...but hey, since Rar already said it -- I say, go for it. :D It'd certainly be an...

"Adult" is still more preferable, IMHO - it's instantly recognizable by almost everyone. I suppose so. I couldn't think of a better name for that genre; "Adult" does sound somewhat better. And placing Shounen/Shoujo in same category with Kids is kinda overkill? Come on, Maruko-chan and Slam Dunk in...

As far as I can see the more genres the better (see my post in the other thread), but what kind of genres are those two?!? Well, as I said, my reasoning was that the amount of main genres should be kept as small as possible -- the detail can be added with subgenres. Those two genres that I suggeste...

Well. I suppose it'd be best to decide the main genres first, and discuss the subgenres after that...? The main genres should probably be kept at bare minimum. As far as I can see, the following ones should be sufficient: Action Comedy Drama Fantasy Historical Horror Juvenile Music Mature Mystery Ro...

Let's see: you watched one episode of anime and it was crap. Ok, you think, maybe next episodes will be better, you watched 2nd and 3rd episode and those were even worse. And only to allow place low vote for this title you have to watch this <censored> until the end (all next XX still same bad epis...

Hm. Brilliant system -- and I'm not saying that only because it's similar to what I was going to suggest. -_-; It certainly doesn't make much sense to have genres and themes on the same list like they are now; glad to see that EXP agrees. You do all realise that it'll be a huge amount of work, thoug...

Me too. We are fortunate to have such an expert coder in charge of AniDB. ^_^ Doesn't look like Anime Hint can (yet?) handle these new votes, though. I got the exact same scores when I tested it by rating one popular anime first 7.5, and then 8. I think it rounds the .5 votes up -- there should prob...
