Definition:

Equivalent to a "R" movie rating, the "OT – Older Teens, Age 16+" rating means that the dialogue may include strong cursing and adult language. Violence, blood and gore may appear in the artwork along with use of alcohol and illegal drugs. Suggestive sexual situations, sexual humor, non-sexual nudity and partial nudity also earn a manga title an "OT" rating.
