School

This genre is very common in this community. As the name would suggest, this genre is usually set at school, typically in middle school – university settings. The stories usually follow typical school events like exams and summer breaks, while also including important school activities such as lessons, school trips and sports. The setting can vary depending on the level of institution and the maturity of the character, for example, if the series is a serious genre then the characters will be more mature to fit the setting, whereas a comedy series will usually include immaturity and delinquents who do comical things.

This genre may also include other different genres that a typical school life may have, such as Drama, Comedy, Slice of Life and Love/Romance.
