Hello. This is a meta thread but rather than being about the site itself it's related to /tc/'s userbase. I hope this is okay. I'd like to note that it's very likely that this will serve no purpose besides satisfying my own curiosity so feel free to ignore me if you feel that responding will be a waste of time.

And the question I wanted to ask you is as follows: how much interest do you have in talking about anime? I'm not asking about your interest in anime itself but how often you feel like talking about things. For example do you ever want to chat about things from your backlog or do you only care about expressing your thoughts on ongoing series? When you watch a series would you like to talk about specific developments, episodes or the show as a whole? Do you ever feel like discussing some aspects of an anime rather than the series itself? OST, characters, art style, you name it. Would you like to discuss animation studios? Directors? Scriptwriters? Ever wish to converse about how anime changed over course of last 50 years? Want to exchange views on how specific events influenced the industry as a whole?

I came up with these questions on the go and they are meant as a guideline first and foremost. I didn't really write them in hopes that somebody will respond to them one by one but if you feel like doing that then be my guest. Aside from topics I'd love to hear a word or two about how often do you crave for some discussion and the like. Basically I'd like you to be as thorough as you can but if you're not in the mood to type more than two sentences then those two will do just fine, too.
So, /tc/, how much interest do you have in talking about anime?

I've always been a regular on /an/. I've started lots of threads and I post whenever I think I have something interesting to comment about some current series, either a joke, a praise, a critique or anything, but I most of the times keep it short. I always enjoy others responding and getting a little something going on, but if they don't I'm ok with it too; I'm satisfied enough with having a smooth place to vent my thoughts about the anime I'm watching. If someone enjoys them, ok; if not, well that's life.

It's actually funny that OP should mention this topic, since I have thought on more than one occasion that I would like to talk about anime more, and that I might get more out of my internet experience if I made more of an effort to engage in discussions about the things I enjoy, rather than just reading and absorbing information.

However, a major impediment for me is that I tend to feel a little intimidated getting into an anime discussion with anyone on the internet. Part of it is that the user base of anime discussion forums / *chan boards / what have you always seem to be made up of hyperweebs who always seem to be up to date on whatever the latest, hottest thing in anime is, whose current playlists usually consist of stuff that's currently airing in Japan. I am sort of an oddity in otakudom in that I would rather buy a series on DVD than download/stream it, which means that I am usually not even aware of the existence of a series until it has been acquired by an American distribution company, subbed or dubbed into English, and released on DVD. I also have a job and other hobbies besides otaku stuff, and I don't always have that much time to just sit and watch anime. So sometimes I will buy a series (usually a few months to a few years after US release) but not get around to watching it until several months later. I also like a lot of older anime, which is frustrating because it seems like a lot of anime fans have major ADD and can't focus on anything except whatever the biggest thing in anime is RIGHT NOW.

The end result is that I always feel like I am way behind the times anime-wise, and every time I step onto a board it's full of threads on shows I know nothing about. Furthermore, if I try to start a thread that goes like "hey, I just started watching Chobits for the first time, and it's pretty good and blah blah etc..." it always gets flooded by abusive bullshit from super-otaku posting slowpokes and comments like "how the hell have you never seen that show before?" and calling me a normie or a poser or whatever.;dr, those are my thoughts. another wall of text for
to bitch about.
>> No. 4924 [Edit]
may wanna check out this thread. seems right up your ally.
>> No. 4925 [Edit]

Frankly I rarely watch any new anime. The only on-going shows I watch are episodic series like cute girls doing cute things, magical girls doing magical things and idol girls doing idol things. ~80% of the time I spend on anime is used on old stuff ('old' is kinda vague I guess but it means everything made between 70-something and ~2005).

>a lot of anime fans have major ADD and can't focus on anything except whatever the biggest thing in anime is RIGHT NOW.

Kinda unfair to anime fans. It's true for humans period. People talk about new games, new movies, new albums, new books. Not old ones. Of course old ones are discussed to some extent but they can't compete with with stuff that's hip, cool, 'in' - basically with what's new.

>Furthermore, if I try to start a thread that goes like "hey, I just started watching Chobits for the first time, and it's pretty good and blah blah etc..." it always gets flooded by abusive bullshit from super-otaku posting slowpokes and comments like "how the hell have you never seen that show before?" and calling me a normie or a poser or whatever.

That's unfortunate. Can't be helped I guess. It's mostly everybody trying to be a cool anime-expert elitist. The best advice I have is to stop posting on /a/, heh.

If you ignore the 'what's lincensed in the USA' part I'm more or less the same I guess. But I always feel like I miss out on discussions so I thought about making something like to connect best of both of worlds so to speak.

All the boards in the 2nd category have their tooltip as "Video Games"

I assume this is a little mistake in the website layout

This place would be booming if every single person who visits the site set a goal for themselves just to make 2 posts a day.
no really, at 250 visitors a day, that would be 500 posts a day. and how hard is it anyway to make two posts? this is just one post and I'm already half way done for the day. Come on, anyone can make just two posts a day, it's not hard guys! just try it! we can do it!!

I;m sure most of you have noticed, activity on tc has started to plateau wihtout neccesarily the increase in quality that lower post rate tends to bring.

I am thinking we need to breathe some fresh air into this site. Bring in some new users and overhaul some of the rules and attitudes we have here. We should not be afraid of change.

Maybe we can do some low-key advertising for this site, specifically targeted towards the more serious otaku type people. For instance, Tohno used to link to tohno-chan by putting the link in his email while posting on the Ghostboard. So something along that line. Nothing too obnoxious though because that tends to incite annoyance and possible 'raids'.

I rather stay (and fall) with 5 guys in a place I can agree this much with, than tolerating a repulsive crowd.

I have nothing against more fair people coming here, and you can advertise alright; but, unless most of the current users want it and Tohno approves (it's his site, after all), I do not see why loosening the rules that give this place its specificity and make it a sort of sanctuary for many of us; I mean: I do not see why make this a /jp/ or /a/ clone (they're already there, so why bother).

Because the only type of people who would want to post on a board like /ns/ are people with shitty tastes.

I started the thread a long time ago, but I dropped the show and so I don't want to look at the thread any more, but my password no longer matches so I can't delete it myself.

>furthermore, there is already another thread for that particular shitty show and nobody seems to care much about either thread, so deleting at least one of them makes sense to me.

I didn't realize a thread existed, as your named it with the english abbr., when I made the other thread.
As your thread both has more replies AND the earlier creation date, it should have priority over the other thread in terms of which gets to stay on the board. Delete the one I made instead.

Also, just because you dropped it doesn't mean other people didn't, and those other people might enjoy adding to the thread. Even if it's just me talking to myself with an occasional sage reply from somebody else. It'll get moved off the board and into the archive once it falls off of the 21st page, page 20, just like Tohno intended. All in good time, my friend.

How do you feel about the quality of anime discussion on Tohno-Chan?
4 posts omitted. Click Reply to view.
>> No. 4647 [Edit]
People don't come to tohno chan to discuss media because it is slow. However this is one of the few places where they can discuss more general topics with like minded people, hence why /so/, /mai/ and /ot/ get more posts. Those boards are not getting more posts because popele are normals.
>> No. 4649 [Edit]

>People don't come to tohno chan to discuss media because it is slow.

/an/ and - to an extent - /vg/ are what made me browse the site in the first place, though. I literally came only for those. I don't have a waifu and I hate blogs. /ot/ is a necessary evil but I usually avoid it.
There are no other places where I could actually discuss anime. MAL is an absolute nausea incuding nightmare and - as unlikely as it sounds - 4chan is actually much worse.

I think that's a really broad generalization overall.

Also, the "Anonymous" written in said board is definitely a typo; it should be like in pic.

>learning Japanese/ typing in Japanese is "weeaboo shit"?

Depends on your definition.
>> No. 4690 [Edit]
While I understand that definition pertaining to dubs, know-it-all translator notes discussions or walking around the goddamn Prudential centre in downtown Boston in a goddamn costume what the fuck are you doing, I don't think honest language learning and practice fall into that category. I mean if you're going to define that as weeabooism and still be on this site you may as well take a trip down a boiling river on a raft made of ice.
>> No. 4691 [Edit]
whatever you say, ken-sama
>> No. 4693 [Edit]

If you picked it up to have better access to the glorious Nihonjin masterrace culture it's a sign of being a weeaboo. Claiming Japanese is a wonderful language that baka gaijin don't derserve to speak because they wouldn't understand it's beauty falls under the same category. There's nothing weeaboo about learning the language itself but when somebody on a site like /tc/ does it saying it's weeaboo is an educated guess.

Not like I have a problem with weeaboos in the first place.
