Shounen / å°‘å¹´

I guess someone who set this genre assumes that it's for boys' mangas like series in Weekly Shonen Jump.
Dragon Ball, Jojo, One Piece, Hunter x Hunter and so on.

Weekly Shonen Jump in wikipedia (English)
Shonen manga in wikipedia (English)

It's manga for teen boys, not manga in which teen boys appear as characters.

So I think "Shounen Ai" should not link to this.

"Shoujo" is the same.

I think they need more understandable translation.

(1) English name and Japanese name is not the same meaning
American Wild West / アメリカ・ウエスタン衣服 → American Wild West Clothing
Animal / 獣 → Beast
Recorder / レコーダー
→ If "Recorder" means a kind of wind instrument, it's "リコーダー", not "レコーダー"
"レコーダー" means video (or audio) recorder.
Reversible / リバシブル (やおい)

(2) Japanese name is sexual term but I don't know English name is also sexual term.
Expansion / 局部拡張
Facial / 顔射
Fingering / 指挿入
Fisting / フィストファック
Juices / 愛液
Location / 性行為の場

(3) Japlish
Bloomer / ブルマー
Boys' Love / ボーイズラブ
Cosplay / コスプレ

Loli / ロリ
Mecha / メカ

(4) Just a romanization

Densha / 電車 (でんしゃ)
Maebari / まえばり
Miko / 巫女
NTR(Netorare) / 寝取られ

(5) So abstractive
Character / キャラ

I think some major categories are abstractive when it is picked out separately.

Anyhow feel free to fix some if you want. However some of those 'very abstract' ones are just there to keep a Three structure of the content itself so it's a bit easier to browse it.

As for those romanisations thats the terms mostly used by westerns to. So most things there is correct.

As for Recorder I know Akari added that one as it's one of the contents he like, and yes it's refering to a "wind instrument" or a type of flute.

And yes there is two content tags who never had an Japanese name Smile kind of weird specially hair sex as it's something I see quite commonly.

As for Femdom it's short for Female Dominance: I'm sure there is an Japanese therm for this.

When I first saw "cowgirl" I thought that was the sexual position where the girl is sitting on top of the male as if she were riding a horse.


I especially like the "text/story" type label since there are plenty of doujinshi that have quite a few UNillustrated pages of text. Usually the text belongs to the plot or story of the pictures, but sometimes, it is about something else entirely such as a description of what has been going on with the circle (news) or an upcoming project.
