But there isn't pantsu subcategory.

Oh! My goddess (OVA, movie and TV serie)

Characters::Mystical Creatures::Devils

Devil Man (OVA's and TV serie)
First one i already proposed (only little different), but about another point. Like exp said enough is at least 2 animes which can fails under new subcategory, but i think he mean by this: at least 2 different animes, not animes closely related (OVA and TV, or prequel and sequel) or we will end in categories like Characters::People::Mystical People::Goddess::Belldandy
Characters::People::Mystical People::Goddess::Urd
Characters::People::Mystical People::Goddess::Skuld
...
Characters::People::Mystical People::Goddess::Goddess singing
...
(there are now 4 AA! Megami sama titles so there is lots of common things in them, and '..Kenshin drinking tea' or '..Naruto using its <forget name, most used by him> technique ' would be then also correct).

Although, when I think about it... How about making the company info part of the categories too?
new root-category:
Company
Company::Studio Ghibli
Company::GONZO
Company::CLAMP
Company::Studio 4°C

... and so on

I actually assumed that there were more anime with goddesses and devils (Devil Lady? haven't seen it) out there. Except I don't know anymore and hoped that someone could back me up with some anime. Btw, Naruto's technique is called Kage Bunshin no Jutsu ;).

But isn't it possible to put the company system into the category tree?
Or at least at the main page because now I have to go to Myplace every time. (Not really necessary, just a minor suggestion)

Someone already added Characters::Kemono. That translates as beast, but if I'm not mistaken, it's also used for anthros..
[EDIT]
...and now someone has renamed it Characters::Juujin. I have absolutely no idea what that means. -_-;
Sorry, should have answered this. I changed it from 'anthropomorphic' because that's a misuse of the word, if I were to talk about Death stalking the streets, or or the hands Fate, that would be anthropomorphism - ie giving human characteristics to abstract or inanimate things. Using it as synonym for 'furries' is Bad. And as this is a vaugley japanese leaning database, I prefer a loanword of some kind to that (implicitly sexual) american one. Settled on 獣人, which is just beast-man/animal-person. Yeah, stuff like this, shinigami, futanari and other loans will need to be explained in situ, but that's not a major technical feat.

Romance::(Sudden girlfriend appearance)
Er... haven't got a good name for this one. Suggestions welcome. You know the sort though, girl appears from nowhere and claims to be owner/spouse/housekeeper of the main character.
Aa! Megami-sama, 3x3 Eyes, Video Girl Ai, Tattoon Master, Utena

Romance::Harem
We all know this one. What ever the excuse in the plot, the basic aim is to get our 'hero' living with as many girls as possible. Oh, the mayhem.
Love Hina, Hanaukyo Maids, Elfen Lied

Bah! Russia is hardly notable. Don't think any people live there, even.

Who cares about people? There's lots of bears and vodka, and bears (well, at least pandas) and vodka are refered in anime often enough.

(Devil Lady? haven't seen it) out there. Except I don't know anymore and hoped that someone could back me up with some anime.
Goddesses: Angelium (there is goddess Hera, but only in minor role, if you add Gods there will be also Zeus and Hades from same title)
Devils: it could be harder, what is difference between demons and devils? Viper GTS has some nice devilish ladies. :twisted:

Now i remembered. And i even remebered harem variant of this :oops:
