Understandably, with anime characters in particular it can be difficult to judge their age from imagery alone. We would like to ask that you use common sense judgement in these cases, and refrain from posting pornographic (or explicit) images of any character who is, or based on appearance could be, interpreted as a minor.

NSFW Classification For Non Removed Images

The following rules are still in development, but should provide some guidance on how we classify NSFW content.

“Out of Character” Art Tagged as NSFW

Some images on this website may be tagged as NSFW if they depict a character in a revealing position that is unique to that character. This includes situations where characters are depicted in explicit poses, such as bending over, revealing excessive skin, or featuring an obvious nipple outline. We recognize that certain fan art or official art creations may portray characters in ways that are not part of their original canon, and we aim to provide appropriate NSFW marking for these instances.

One great example of official artwork with out of character, NSFW tagged artwork could be SHIROBAKO Official Compilation Book WHITE SUMMER! – which you can read a review of here, it was obviously created with fan service in mind that was outside the scope of the show and characters as we know them.

Should any of these make it’s way via user uploads, when users report it as NSFW and it’s reviewed, we’ll likely retain that classification but keep the images in the gallery.

“In Character” Art – Ecchi, Revealing Outfits, Suggestive Poses Not Tagged as NSFW

In some anime series, characters may be depicted wearing revealing or ecchi outfits as part of their original canon or as depicted in official artwork. For example, in Kill la Kill, characters frequently don provocative clothing, which is an integral aspect of the show’s artistic style and narrative. Similarly, in High School DxD, characters may wear revealing outfits that align with the ecchi genre.

Should Mikasa Ackerman be drawn in the outfit of a kill la kill character it would likely be given NSFW classification, as it would be given that based on the previous section (Out of Character Art).

As these depictions are inherent to the nature of their respective series and not intended to be explicit fan art, they will not be classified as NSFW. Our intention is to differentiate between creative fan art that introduces out-of-character elements and instances where characters are presented in accordance with the established themes and art style of the anime series in question.

In My Hero Academia there may be fan art that portrays characters in explicit poses not seen in the show’s original context. A good example of this would be Camie Utsushimi. These cases would fall into the “In Character” classification and not be marked as NSFW.

“In Character” Art Tagged As NSFW Or Removed

In certain cases, like PRISMA☆ILLYA, artwork may be removed that would technically be allowed by this policy, and we reserve the right to do that for certain characters. We encourage our users to look elsewhere for art (official, or unofficial).

For other in character art, we may tag it as NSFW if we feel it goes too far into the ecchi \ borderline. Things like characters full on bent over in front of the camera, even if in character would likely be tagged NSFW. If too many “features” of that character are visible \ outlined in such a bent over state, it may be removed.

Explicit Nudity (Strictly Prohibited)

Explicit images featuring direct nudity or sex acts will not be allowed on this website. Such content will be removed when discovered. For NSFW box art of adult games, we will censor the box art as needed.

If you see a missed image, please report it using feedback or on the discord #support channel.

MyWaifuList aggregates user submitted content, images, and moderation and approvals are done by independent users who elect to volunteer their time and act as power users. As these users are independent and moderation is a community driven effort, some works will (inevitably) be the work of others that were mistakenly uploaded. If you would like your work removed, please read the section below.

(i) The artwork in question
(ii) A link to the Waifu
(iii) Proof of ownership (picture of you logged into social media, twitch, or the original platform it was published on – nothing too serious.)


(i) Contact us from twitter with the original posted art and a link to the Waifu for removal

Please consult our Content Removal page for additional information. We do not want to make it hard for artists to request removal of their own art – so don’t think you need to go above and beyond to get it removed. Just ask, we promise <3
