Hello, I'm new here and was unable to find a post about this, but is there a way to filter anime to exclude certain genres? For example: I enjoy more mature anime, adult topics and such but I don't enjoy explicit and obvious fan service and things that would be under the ecchi and harem category. Is there some way to filter out these tags across the board for my account?

Thanks for your help =)

Not exactly. One problem is that everything isn't fully tagged here natively. (which is why I created Rotten Sushi, but that is for the opposite reason, which is to make tags more inclusive, not less)

This may help you somewhat, but it probably won't be perfect. Go here

/acct/?action=video

And set the drop-down for the mature content filter to explicitly "Hide Mature Content". That will even have different results depending on what you watch with. Apple has different standards than CR's website, so viewing via an Apple TV device (for example) (or other /devices) would show less choices than just surfing here with a web browser. But still, there is some filtering that occurs even in a browser. Just a quick count of the alpha all list shows about 32 less shows with the filter on compared to allowing everything.

Although, if you didn't have the mature option set at all, you may not see much difference, since I think the default is to not allow mature shows.

Thanks for the info. I set the menu to hide mature content and didn't see much of a difference. I don't think ecchi is considered "mature" here though so whatevs. Maybe one day.
Thanks again =)
