Features I'm currently considering:

  • Anime/Manga Reviews: This should cover both licensed and currently-broadcast titles. These will hopefully be a bit more in-depth than other sites can provide, maybe with some unique viewpoints as well.
  • "First Look" Reviews: Tying in with the above fill reviews, these would be written quickly after the first two or three episodes of a current-season anime to give a gauge on what the series looks to be, what the expectations are given the run, etc. They won't be episode transcripts like some sites, but more personal and opinionated.
  • Round Table Discussions: These can be audio or text (group chat?) or even both (transcript of the talk). They will focus on a current issue either in the community (fansubbing or even just general anime fan stuff), current society, or similar topics. One person would be a moderator to push discussion talking-points and just to keep people on-topic. For example, if a current-season show has a good focus on or example of hikikomori, then discussion can be had about that topic.


Note: These may or may not be done depending on the amount of people who can participate. They will likely be rolled out in the order of effort it will take to get them going. The first two shouldn't be too difficult, but the last one might be.

I wouldn't mind helping in reviewing an anime or manga. I get soo bored that I'm watching a number of animes at one time and reading some too.

I can do reviews and participate in live discussions via chat of some sort (voice or otherwise).  ;D

Aoshi if we can get atleast 3 or 4 of us to review some anime/manga and then discus it. It would really help people know what kind of manga/anime it is instead of us only reading one. This way we can discuss the good points and bad points about it to make sure we ourselves understand it before we tell others about it.

For a review, I don't think it's important for multiple people to read/watch before doing a review.

Once I get the new portal stuff going, I'll build some templates and make a few samples.

Double-posting (because I can), but nobody noticed the name change for the forum?

Bridging the early times of the site when it was strictly about discussion with the future, we are now Anime ni Yamitsuki! (Roughly, "Anime Addict" in English.)

I noticed the name change just a moment ago before I checked the thread. I like it  ;D

I agree with Motoko on that one, however there's nothing saying we can't review the same thing. It comes down to this, if you happen to choose the same thing another reviewer is going to review or if we feel we want to do a discussion episode (or make the show more of a discussion), then we can do so. I don't see why not.

A review, in the end, is just an opinion anyway. We're just another group of fans making recommendation. What helps us stand out more than the rest, is how fun we can make it.

I guess your right. No need to go into a major detail for a small review

I like the name change, I didn't notice cause I went back to the default font 2 days ago and was checking how eveything changed. I LIKE IT!!!

I wouldn't mind having multiple written reviews for a show. Everyone approaches things from a different perspective and it is always nice to get multiple takes on things.

Question(s) is/are: When do we start?

Are we going to start with written or should we start planning to do a voice recording? How will this apply to the main site (if at all) and how to implement it? Is it something thats going to wait until Motoko is done fixing everything with the site?

Written to start, I think. It would be easier.

Once I get the new portal system running, that can start.

Motoko has already dealt with the domains. While the Yanime domain still works, this site can be accessed by two new domains. You can view them in this post.
