Netorare, often just abbreviated with NTR, is a genre where the intent is to cause an emotion of deep jealousy or distress in the reader. A direct translation of the word results in "having your lover taken from you" or "to have something taken from you while you sleep." This is often accomplished by having the main protagonist's loved one seduced away from them, with or without their knowledge. Netorare can also encompass family members or childhood friends, not only lovers. NOTE: Don't confuse this with Netori. In Netorare, the story is told from the perspective of the one having his lover stolen or the girl being stolen away, in Netori the stealer is the MC.
