Here you can find our standard operating procedures, along with a list of all our tags.

Also, we now have an API documentation page!

Tag List

These are all the tags we use on the website.

If you would like to suggest a new tag, tell us on our Discord.

How This List Was Put Together

First and foremost, we need to source doujins to actually sort. To find these, we run full, automated scans of nhentai, parse through Pastebins of hundreds of links, go through our Reddit saved sections, plumb the depths of exhentai, and scour the wastelands of countless doujin websites.

Every doujin on this initial list is then thoroughly vetted for anything underage or unwholesome, then sorted. We check every doujin for licensing as well.

This might sound easy, but just sorting a single doujin, even with this rudimentary tag system, probably takes 5 minutes at the very least. This would have been completely impossible without the help of our collaborators.

The end result is a thing of beauty. A list with all the tags that people want to see, along with notes about potentially dangerous subjects, that has been thoroughly checked for any underage characters or licensed content. We put in a lot of work to make this list, so we hope you enjoy it.

Criteria For Doujins

Professionals have standards.

All doujins on our list are:

  • Not underage
  • Not licensed
  • At least a D- in wholesomeness
  • Not unwholesome (no NTR, rape, etc.)

Everything on our list meets these 4 criteria. If you spot something that does not, please let us know in our Discord, and we'll take care of it.

What's Considered Underage?

Since we're affiliated with r/wholesomehentai, the rules for what's considered underage are the same as over there. The full rules can be found here.

In short, here are the basic rules we follow:

  • If it's a parody, the characters must be 18+ in canon.
  • There must be no indicators of the characters being under 18. This includes, but is not limited to:
    • Any ages mentioned below 18
    • A main character being in the 2nd year of high school (because they said "senpai" in a high school, their classroom sign said "2-B", or any other indicator)
  • The characters must look 18 or older (no thousand year old lolis).

Licensed Doujins

Again, since we're affiliated with r/wholesomehentai, we do not allow licensed doujins on the website.

The details of how to fully ensure a doujin is not licensed is far too complicated to discuss at length here - instead, just read the comprehensive guide at r/wholesomehentai.

License checking thousands of doujins by hand would be unbelievably tiring, so we've developed a bot to help us do this sort of license-checking in a much better way. It runs a variety of checks using regular expressions and parsing, and then compares the title similarities with TensorFlow, a machine learning library (totally being used as intended).

With a list of this size, things are bound to slip through the cracks. Always check for yourself if the doujin is licensed or not. If you spot something that's actually licensed, let us know on Discord, or if you're into excessive formality, you can also email us at [email protected].


All our doujins are given a tier. Our tiering usually tries to follow this percentage distribution:

  • S: Perfection (4-6% of list)
  • A: Amazing (15-25% of list)
  • B: Good (40-60% of list)
  • C: Okay (15-25% of list)
  • D: Questionable (4-6% of list)

Each tier is further divided into +/-, such as A- or C+. (S+ does not exist.)

Our tiering is solely based on wholesomeness - not other factors, like uncensored, full color, or art style.


Q. What happened to the Google Sheet?

A. Google took it down. Apparently, there's a clause in their Terms of Service that disallows sharing anything "redirecting traffic to commercial pornography sites".

But clearly, us weebs are better than Google and have a more glorious purpose than those IDIOTS, so we made this website.*

*technically not this website. this one's the rewrite.

Q. How was this website made?

This website uses Express, Node.js and Handlebars for templating as the backend, and for the frontend, it uses DataTables, jQuery, Tailwind, Cookies-js (for dark mode), and excessive amounts of caffeine. The website deploys onto Heroku.

Behind the scenes, a slew of other creations keep the website running, such as a discord.js bot, a bot, a JDA bot... you know, I'm starting to see a trend.

Q. Why is this information wrong?

Q. How do I join the effort?

Q. How do I report a bug?

Q. I want to suggest doujins, where do I go?

Q. I have more questions, where do I ask?

A. For the love of god, just join the Discord.

Wow, you actually made it to the bottom of the document. DM me (the owner) on Discord for a secret role.
