What anime discussion forums do you consider good/useful?
Which do you find to be the least insufferable
Which do you think have the most in-depth discussions about news, the industry and general trivia?
Which do you think have the most informed userbase?

I hope this thread doesn't bother anyone. I know it inevitably will and people are going to say there are no good sites but it'd be nice to see if there's any consensus on what the least shitty ones are or which have the most of each type of shit behaviour.

I don't want to resort to leddit or MAL.

/a/ and /m/ combined have a lot of informed posters

I'm being genuine when I say that literally every anime site that isn't in fucking japanese is dog shit compared to /a/. We're at the forefront of news, tech developments, all that shit. Every other site basically just digs through our trash. I'd honestly say that /a/ is the number one anime "place" in the west.

Everyone on forums are being fake ass niggas.

/a/ is where you can say what you really feel.

MAL, reddit, Facebook, gaia, ANN forums, Crunchyroll forums
>>
>>118980686
/a/, man.
It's all thanks to the anonymity.
On regular forums you'll always have epeen, "lol i suck mod dick xD" fags (There was an image explaining this, haven't got it anymore), weeaboos, faggots that think they know what they're talking about when they actually don't, and are believed because they registeredx 5 years ago or have a five digit post count.

/a/'s the best. It has its flaws, but it's the best in the west for sure.

Why is /a/ so slow lately?

I think this is in part good, but I can't help feeling that /a/ and 4chan are in decline.

Like, I wish this was 2008-2012 again, and watching /a/ grow.

I don't know how /a/ was from 2004 to 2008, but it sure would be great to come back and experience it

That's wrong though. /a/ doesn't actually output anything reusable, even if people on /a/ tend to be the most informed.
The question though is where /a/ gets its information from. I've been here for ~3 years and still have no idea; I get my news from other /a/nons if I get them all. I'm guessing that a large part comes from /jp/ kinds of people who know nippon and browse Japanese websites and 2ch and stuff.

>>118981986
Why do they even have the "anime" tag? If you ask them what their favorite anime this season is or what they are going to watch next season they just tell you how much they love naruto or attack on titan. Fucking weird.

Given that "forum" is a normal English word which isn't even related to the Web, not sure if BBS are "normal" forums. It's probably best to refer to them by their precise name: BBS (or bulletin) forums.

I don't really care if the person watches things season to season, so long as they can carry a conversation about things we've both watched.
>>
>>118982194
But they only watched 2 or 3 animu and only talk about these. Mostly some shounen.

>>118982188
It's too late, anon. There's nothing you can do now. Anime is mainstream.

>>118982010
Yeah, most of the time. They browse jap webs, so they are sort of a channel to primary information.

/a/ has been the way it has for a while now. I think my two favorite times were the Geass shitstorm and the PSG through Madoka crap. Walburger night was so much fun with /a/.

>>118982293
The "mainstream" was a joke, but it has certainly become far more socially acceptable than it was back then, even if it isn't as widely popular as a medium. I hear high school kids at the skate park next to my library talking about entry-level shounen like Fairy Tale and it's not uncommon to overhear grown-ass lumberjack-types at work talking about more recent shows for other demographics. In fact, most people don't even look at you funny anymore if you say the word "anime" to them. It may not be mainstream, but we are living in a climate where it easily could become that way.

According to my unscientific yet accurate statistics, /a/ does get most of their news indirectly from ANN
>>
There are things I can't stand about the board culture here, but the alternatives are so crappy I can't help but come back.

Reddit has all /a/'s flaws but none of its virtues, ANN users manage to watch hundreds of anime without learning a thing, and follow Zac's moronic crusades (anime shouldn't be for otaku, fansubs are destroying the industry, Cross Ange is sexist and we should care about that, etc.) Tumblr is what ANN would be if the userbase had the knowledge base of the average high school anime club member.

If you can suffer idiots MAL's not bad - the userbase is dumb, but dumb's better than the shit some boards put out. It's second-best as far as I know and that's a fucking tragedy.

I don't want to learn moon for raws. I want to learn moon for animu boards that aren't shit.
>>
>>118982546
Depends what you want out of discussion and the community. With entry into the mainstream comes increased visibility and many of the often comforting, less commonly palatable aspects of previously insular communities die off in favor of building a better image among the general population. Some people might like that if they want more of their normalfag friends and/or people in general to be into the medium. Personally, I'd prefer if it stayed as a fairly socially-isolated, though still numerically significant, medium, as I like the little quirks and unique features read: filthy degeneracy of our communities, which I find to be in their purest and most distilled form on /a/. It's a matter of opinion. However, once we are thrown into the mainstream, there is no going back, and we're currently dangling over it in a fairly rickety suspension bridge.

>>118982831
I'm the faggot anon here >>118982776, but he's right. Until video games in general entered the mainstream, developers often focused on trying to provide players with new experiences and truly meaningful gameplay, rather than making slight variations on formulae in the interest of appealing to the largest possible audience, because at the time their audience was fairly small and highly critical. You still see this in some of the less-popular genres such as historical simulation/strategy and computer RPGs, but even they suffer from the symptoms. There's a reason we don't see things like Baldur's Gate and Crimson Skies anymore.
As anime is less of a global medium than video games are, I'm not sure how good of a comparison it is, but as there is a lot of overlap with the culture and userbase (at least there used to be) of both, I think some comparison can be made.

But that's what it is, or did /a/ change the definition because they didn't like it? That was your fucking attitude from the start. even when Moot told you to fuck off, you still act defiant.

Self moderation at it's simplest is telling people to lurk more. That's the essence of it. And there are plenty of anons that don't take it way too far and shitpost in threads they don't like under the guise of moderation.

I may not be a master of social anal like you but at least I don't deny facts. And saying gender doesn't play a role is blatant ignore if not deny. The reason anime isn't concerned just yet is because it's a western phenomenon. But the day anime is mainstream enough to justify pandering solely to western audience is the day shit hits the fan and this pic will be as accurate for anime than it is for video games.

Man, I needed a good laugh. That won't ever happen, you fucking idiot. Japan would rather see anime die than become Jewish slaves. They don't even show exported BDs/DVDs in the sales numbers because they hate gaijin so much.

The point is that the gender of a person is not a determinant of how likely they are to grasp a subculture.
What *is* likely is that from cultural reasons (upbringing of girls as girly, plus the tendency of men to form "boys only" groups) leads to a society where a female person is simply statistically less likely to be the kind of person to get a subculture.

You do realize that the majority of western entertainment is owned by jews, right? That's not some tinfoil hat thing, it's a fact. The point is, Japan will never bow down and suck their cocks. They'd rather see anime crash and burn than submit to another country.
