Here is a compiled list of new theme ideas from myself and others in the community. See something redundant or missing? See something that shouldn't be added? Everything is up for debate even the naming.

  • Animals
  • Apocalyptic
  • Art
  • Automotive
  • Censorship
  • Crowd Funded
  • Dance
  • Doujinshi
  • Driving
  • Drugs
  • Ecchi
  • Esoteric
  • Family *new*
  • Fashion
  • Food
  • Gender Bender
  • Gore
  • Graphic Novel
  • Harem
  • Health or Medical
  • Hiatus
  • Holiday *new*
  • Industry Related
  • Isekai
  • Josei
  • Law or Legal
  • Law Enforcement
  • Leading Ladies or Female Lead
  • Literature
  • Martial Arts
  • Mecha
  • Military
  • Multiple Publishers
  • Music
  • Mythology
  • Nature *new*
  • Office Life
  • Poetic or Poetry
  • Post-Apocalyptic
  • Reference
  • Reprint
  • School Life
  • Seasonal
  • Seinen
  • Shoujo
  • Shoujo Ai
  • Shounen
  • Shounen Ai
  • Space *new*
  • Superhero or Super
  • Survival
  • Technology
  • Tragedy
  • Weekly
  • Yaoi
  • Yuri

I've also been thinking about adding either languages or countries to the themes (even though that goes beyond themes really), specifically so we could add the language something is in or where it was published. We wouldn't add everything since those are massive lists but maybe the top 5 or so of one or both: English, Japanese, French, German, Spanish or United States, Japan, France, Germany, Italy. Anything to make the themes even more useful really.

@pikahyper: Personally, I'd rather have languages added as an extra section in the volume/series details box. Adding it to themes would just clutter it up even more if the extra themes you suggested.

Question: what would be considered Health as a theme? First thing that pops to my mind would be a medical drama, but that's listed as a seperate theme.

@cloudguy: I want a language field as well, always have, but I'm being practical and just working with what we have.

Answer: didn't notice that, shouldn't be both, just one or the other using whichever name works best.

  • Comics (as in a comic/book/show/movie about comics/comic creators/making comics and etc.). Of course it's tricky to pick a name for this theme
  • Family (adventures, drama and etc.)
  • Holiday

@billy_batson: I like Family and Holiday, not sure about Comics, I can't think of a short descriptive name.

For Holiday are you meaning for it to be used for like seasonal specials or any volume where holidays are the main theme? If it is the first I have Seasonal in the list.

Both. In some cases one can use both but then again can holiday be used on its own then?

@billy_batson: Nature is a good one.

Reason for using Space instead of Science Fiction? seems broad and kind of redundant with the location for individual issues.

There are comics about the moon, mars, Earth, sun, etc., space expedition comics both fictional and non-fictional that aren't necessarily sci-fi. Plus more specific rather than just sci-fi.

I've especially interested in opinions on the list items with *or* in them, those are the ones whose names I have not settled on.

Female centric? Health sounds better.

@billy_batson: centric sounds more like a comic with no men period.

I can almost see Health and Medical being two themes, Health being more general well-being and Medical being more I dunno professional.

@billy_batson: what age range does that cover?

Early-late teens to early twenties. Many comics get marketed that way these days (not to mention all the books/movies/shows)
