Semi-protected edit request on 20 February 2018[edit]

Grammatical Correction (Under the Genre tab):

"By contrast, some anime subgenres incorporate ecchi, sexual themes or undertones without depictions of sexual intercourse, as typified in the comedic or harem genres; due to its popularity among adolescent and adult anime enthusiasts, the inclusion of such elements is considered a form of fan service."

I believe "sexual themes or undertones without depictions of sexual intercourse" should come after a colon since the term "ecchi" is being defined within the sentence itself.


Proposed Edit:

By contrast, some anime subgenres incorporate ecchi: sexual themes or undertones without depictions of sexual intercourse, as typified in the comedic or harem genres; due to its popularity among adolescent and adult anime enthusiasts, the inclusion of such elements is considered a form of fan service.

 Not done for now: The phrase "sexual themes...intercourse" can be read as a parenthetical subordinate clause, in which case setting it off with commas is correct punctuation. The alternative reading of the phrase "sexual themes...genres" can also be read as a definitional clause, in which case the suggested colon would be correct. Since there is another subordinate clause immediately following the semi-colon, the first reading is simpler and therefore easier. Eggishorn (talk) (contrib) 19:07, 20 February 2018 (UTC)
