Ok first for those interested in the post i highly suggest to use the link below (that doesnt work unless you copy paste. Why? simply because i wrote it in notepad and when i post the tree structure wich is extremely important is unreadable.

So here if you dont want to use the link and are ready to not understand a thing.
------same as the .txt file but without the tabs X_X ---------------------------
I thought about this tree like structure and here is a sample of what it could look like. (here hentai could be a subgenre of something else like mature or not depending on what will be chosen to be the basic genres)
Note that this could mean that different subcategories coul have the same name while referring to things that are not exactly the same.
For example the demon from tentacles would be different from the demon in an other main category. Lets note that this isnt necessarily a bad thing.
Someone looking for demon action most probably isnt looking for young girl getting rapped and someone looking for the later is most probably not interested in demon getting killed by a battleaxe without having the time to do anything to the poor girls.
Also this could be shown the same way anime relations are shown wich mean that you see the main genres in the main page (with or without the stars) and if you want to know more you click the link and get the full tree like structure with the level of each beside the name.
for anime that have the same theme in many categories.
Example the demon does have the time to rape the girl but when he is done he will also put a decent fight before getting killed. It would be 2 different subcategories wich could be rated differently (thus allowing me to know how much time the demon spend raping and how much he uses for fighting)
Please also note that some subcategories dont really make sense in themselves but do make the whole thing much easier to read.
To really picture the graphic well, you can imagine the name of the anime left of the hentai and something like action at the same level than hentai and having his own structure
There is one problem with this idea thought and its that it doesnt handle exceptions well. For example if I happen to find an anime with demons that are having a family drama, i need to add demon as a subcategory of drama since it doesnt really fit in the demon subcategory of action or tentacles.
Of course if we want to push the idea to reach a level where its truly usuful, we need to allow for the search of only demon linked to the tentacles subgenres (i want tentacles demon rape), only the action subgenre(i want action with demon) or simply demon no matter where in the tree they may be(I want demon i dont care what they do).
This would need a rework on the way genre searchig is done but i think it could be done.
The hentai from tentacles would be the same demon than the action one but for the anime the demon entry would exist only as the full branch (thus allowing me to grade the 2 things the demon might do differently and keeping my tree understandable.
So if we want to talk the garden way i could search for a leaf or a branch
-upper body only
-hentai level -upper body + fogged pictures (example:urotsukidoji perfect collection)
- -golden or luminous dick
- -complete porn
-type of sex -bondage
- -mutual agreement
- -peoples -boy-boy
- - -girl-girl
- -objects (dilco, vibrator, unspeacable things)
- -slimmy creatures
-well known anime characters
For those that may get confused by this huge post, here is an example of an hentai who would contain amost only sex,a brief action involving killing the demons, a bit of drama, quite a bit of tentacles rapes mainly done by demon but briefly by the wires of a crazed computer, and tons of lesbian action. i would set the following genre. Of course everybody get raped all the time except for 2 girls actually discover a passion toward each others. Normally, you dont see much during the sex scenes but when it involves tentacles you suddenly see everything there is to see.
hentai:things involved:tentacles 3/5
hentai:things involved:tentacles:demon 3/5
hentai:things involved:tentacles:mechanical 1/5
hentai:things involved:peoples:girl-girl 5/5
hentai:type of sex:rape 5/5
hentai:type of sex: mutual agreement 2/5
hentai:hentai level:complete porn 2/5
hentai:hentai level:upper body only 3/5
This would create a tree like this
-action 1/5 -demon 1/5
sandra story -
- -upperbody only 3/5
-hentai 5/5 -hentai level -complete porn 2/5
-type of sex -rape 5/5
- -agrement 2/5
- -peoples -girl-girl 5/5
-tentacles 3/5 -demon 3/5
If i want to give a value to the amout of peoples involved in the sex i just need to add the genre
hentai:things involved:peoples 3/5
so the database completeness would be dependent on the user creating the entry and could be improved over the time.
this combined with a minimum level of importance could work fairly well
examples: search genre demon mimimum 3 gives the anime
search genre action:demon mimimum 3 doesnt give the anime
and so on
and sorry for the freaking huge post
