@TechNiko did you add those categories, like characters and genre, separately? Because when I add a category with the chain-add, it doesn't add categories like characters or genre.

EDIT: Do hollows fall under spirits or beasts? Or what else?

EDIT2: New suggestion: Place::Alternative World
Examples: Naruto and Scrapped Princess
Or a suggestion of what I should enter instead.

I'd rename Original Work::-tree into Based on:: and then "none" into "nothing". This looks more intuitive for my perception.

haven't seen area88, is it actually _based_ on the old anime or are both simply using the same original work as base?
if there are animes which are entirely based on another anime (which might only be evident if the original anime differed noticeably from it's original source) this category might indeed be usefull.

If you look at the categories here, the categories genre, setting, audience and characters are separately shown. Please wipe em :).
done, the remaining question is if "Characters::People" is a useful entry or not.

What about animes which are sequels to titles based on manga (or something different) but itself are not connected to primary source (like AA! Megami-sama is based more or less on manga, but AA! Megami-sama - The Movie has original story not existing in manga, so marking it as based on manga would not be precise).

Maybe there are some cases, when this category can be usable, like some SF or fantasy, where are mostly demons, angels, ghosts, androids, aliens and only some not specific humans. But at least i would not take this category as parent category, only when is marked itself.

I propose moving from Setting::Place genres: School, Office, Prison, Hospital, Mansion as subgenres of
Setting::Place::Buildings

Setting::Place::Buildings::Office
Setting::Place::Buildings::School
...

adding to them
Setting::Place::Buildings::Home
action take sometimes place inside normal houses.

moving Americas, Asia, Europe as subgenres of
Setting::Place::Earth

Setting::Place::Earth::Americas::United States
...

moving Dystopia, Mirror world as subgenres of
Setting::Place::Worlds
or
Setting::Place::Other worlds

Setting::Place::Worlds::Dystopia
Setting::Place::Worlds::Mirror world
Setting::Place::Worlds::Virtual Reality

Train could be then moved to
Setting::Place::Vehicles::Train

"pantsu" or "ass" on 'nudity' wouldn't hurt.
especially considering that topless is listed, and both are ecchi trademarks :)

Pantsu exists (everywhere), the problem you should be raising is poor treeing.

Original work::Game::Dating sims
Of course, one might say that "H" games already count as such, but what about works based on dating sims targeted towards girls? (ie. Meine Liebe or Angelique) I've never even come across any cheat codes for unlocking nude pictures of the characters @_@;

I want a category Setting::Place::Alternative World or Setting::Place::Fantasy World. Please consider :). There are enough examples out there, so I don't think it's necessary to give them ;).

short summary from what i cought of the last few posts besides elias post

should be done
----
Setting::Place::Alternative World (or Setting::Place::Fantasy World) should already be taken care of with Setting::Place::other Worlds
Original work::Game::Dating sims - done


needs further discussion:
Add
---
Original Work::other anime


Move
-----
Action::Western to Action::Guns::Western


Rename
----
Original Work to Based on (or Origin)


applied elias suggestions as it structures the
Setting::Place::

what about Setting::Place::Marine and Setting::Place::Marine::Submarine ?


Original Work::other anime
I think we shouldn't add that. relations takes care of that.

lets take the AMS example.

all 3 are based upon the manga. some more some less. thats what the stars are for and relation takes care all 3 are connected.

Please capitalize other in Setting::Place::other Worlds

And could you please change it into a normal category instead of a placeholder. I can't add it now :?.

Moving to Setting::Place::Vehicles::Marine maybe?

Also then adding there:
Setting::Place::Vehicles::Cars
Setting::Place::Vehicles::Planes
Setting::Place::Vehicles::Other (for balloons or other rare vehicles)

Maybe also move
Setting::Place::Space::Shipboard
as
Setting::Place::Vehicles::Spaceships

Another propose:

Characters::Animals::Other
Characters::People::Other

For animals (cows, goldfishes, chickens, ...) or classes of people (thieves, artists, sportsmens, programmers), which maybe have now only one anime title containing it, but those genres would contain set of titles for choosing new subgenres (if it would be possible to add comment to genre it would be even better: Characters::Animals::Other with comment 'sharks')

*sigh*... no, no 'other', and no single category anime. Read the thread if you want to know why I think this.
