It was originally bucketed with that ticket yes. I do think that an explicit ‘adult’ marker probably lives separately and is admin controlled, but we could have a voted ‘adult’ tag (along with nudity, sex scenes… etc) too that could inform the decision.
Thinking also about auto-hide from search vs selectively hide from user library (eg maybe there’s some stuff a particular user would want to display or not display on their own personal profile, etc, though you wouldn’t want to override someone else’s ‘show to me’ options, of course … just thinking out loud)
R18 is what TMDB uses which is why I mentioned it and NC-17 is the term I grew up with (&figured other people might have) so threw it in for clarity. Basically all I mean is “clearly NSFW, sexual scenes but not pornography”.
Some films really toe the line (pink films) but I haven’t added any of those
I suppose there’s a distinction to be made though. I don’t consider shows like 痴情の接吻 S1 | L25 and ももいろ あんずいろ さくらいろ S1 | L23 to be ‘adult’ because while there is a sex scene each episode, it maxes out around PG-13 level as I’m pretty sure it’s being broadcast during regular TV hours and there’s no nudity (lots of naked shoulder blades and shirtless men, though). Someone could argue that they’re softcore, though, as they’re quite steamy. And ridiculous, but that’s beside the point.
Meanwhile something like 娼年 | L30 has very explicit scenes with as much nudity as the censors will allow them - but a clear plot outside of the sex, decent acting, and a lot of drama.
So, all of that stuff would not make even decently spicy stuff on HBO I don’t think… at least from your description and the covers haha. I’ve had plenty of requests for manga that were way spicier (ex: like this (be warned, a naked anime girl appears) ).
I’m not sure I’d allow full porn on the site, but manga porn and story telling soft core, I don’t know. We’ll have to see.
General R-rated HBO content like Game of thrones is totally fine to not be marked as adult.
