As much as I love this place, there is no where to discuss popular Japanese Anime and Manga.

Considering how long Anime/Manga's run for, there should be a place on the forums to discuss them. With the Media forum, it's filled up with topics popular American TV shows, Music, and Movies. Not much breathing room for a deep Anime/Manga discussion.

Well, that's it, I just don't know how else to put it. I just wish there was place to discuss Anime here, every other forum I've ever been a part of, there was atleast a place to discuss them.

Either way, I still love this place. :p

It's just, well.....

There are so many Anime/Manga's out there. If it had it's own forum, it would be alot easier to discuss, with the ever evolving plot.....

Just a recommendation. :biglaugh

This is the first request for an Anime forum... So I think it'll be a lonely board :p

Well, its been posted a few times in the entertainment board, but its not popular enough to warrant its own section.

I love anime but havent felt the need to discuss it much but if i did i would probably use pms or use that entertainment board.

Isn't Anime mainly cartoon chicks getting their knockers out? :p Bring on the forum! I agree with Minty, I doubt theirs enough people interested in Anime to warrant its own sub-forum, their dosen't seem to be many japanese members.

No, that's Hentai :p It's explicit anime. Anyways, I'm also with Webb and Minty. There hasn't been a lot of talk about anime, so I don't think it's enough to get it's own forum.

*Types Hentai into Google Images* Oh my god :eek: I'm pretty sure that would get alot of attention on the forums :p

Possibly add it as a sub-forum on the entertainment board or something? Anime is pretty popular, seems like it merits something.

Yo minty maybe in the near future you could add a poll on the homepage.

Should we add an anime forum yes or no.

Then your now for certain. or maybe a whats your shoesize forum just for pandora lol.:p

Seriously, Anime is to specialised for the forum at the mo. If people were discussing it daily on the site, then after a few months maybe it would happen.

But I rarely see a post on it, so it doesnt deserve a forum, or to have a pol on the front page...

Hey I'm Japanese :P

It's a toss up though. Apparently it's not popular on a 360 board. I can see why though. Anime is popular no doubt, but not enough I guess to have on a gaming forum. Which kinda makes sense. So if there was a forum, great, if there isn't, oh well.

im on the fence i love anime and manga, and if there was a thread i would most likly live there but would it be popular enough its very particular to the shows the stlyes the storys so many things can not be just posted as they would be lost even though i think people would enjoy them. could a trial be run for a week?

I used to be really into anime. I still have tons of anime, but I never really discuss any of it anymore. Does it really fit on a gaming site?

Digilearner
01-21-2008, 09:20 PM
Well, does anything non-gaming related belong on this site such as shows and media? Not saying the don't, but if anime was popular enough, it should have a place here, but it's not and we all know it wouldn't last long. I would post there, but we have like 4 people so far who said they would which clearly isn't enough.

If only.....

Maybe when more Japanese games come to the 360, I'll try again and see if I'm more, "sucessful." ;)

Even if we were to have a Anime Forum, I wouldn't allow Hentai to be discussed or posted. It's way too explicit for discussion. Don't even think about posting pictures or clips. Remember, we are a Family based site. Keep it clean.;)

Spoil sport :( Gave me another idea though, probably not a good one seeing were a family and gaming orientated site, but an over 18s only area where naughty stuff can be posted?

Ages can easily be faked.
The best way to keep 18+ content away from us minors is to not allow it at all.

If the site states strictly over 18s though and writes a disclaimer or something similar, then we can't be held responsible whatsoever by anybody if underage kids look in that forum, thats their fault for disobeying the laws.

Agreed.

And gonna lock this now. We've established the lack of need for a Anime forum but of course, if the demand picks up then we'll reassess it.

Thanks :)
