    We already had an anime & manga subforum until earlier this year, but it got removed due to inactivity. :dontknow: Even this one general anime thread isn't moving as quickly as it used to, takes a couple of days to even fill up a page with 20 posts, so personally I just can't see how we could keep an entire subforum active. :s:

    Because although this thread isn't that active, I assume other threads related to anime and manga are! The naruto one, for example is! And there are hundreds of manga and anime

    Actually, I believe this thread is one of the more active ones... looking at the first page of threads in TV, the only anime-related threads there are this one, and the Identify the Anime competition I made last weekend, which I've bumped constantly (and advertised on Facebook). :s:

    While I'm not against the idea of an anime subforum in principle, again I just don't think there's enough active anime fans on TSR to keep it running (or if there are, why don't they post in this thread?!) :mad: :p: Can't speak for the admins, but I imagine they'll be reluctant to make a new one so soon after the first one failed. Still, no harm in trying I suppose.

    I see. I'll check out your competition when I get the chance. Do you attend any Conventions? I really want to go to Japan to see live readings of anime!
    Thoughts on the bleach musical?

    I've only ever been to the Telford Expo, though I'd like to go to more. It's just the hassle of getting there that puts me off (I live in rural North Wales, and don't drive).

    This is the first I've heard of a Bleach musical... and since I haven't watched the anime/read the manga I can't comment on how well I think it would adapt. Have to say I've heard of much crazier ideas, though. :p:

    Fair enough. Is there a Cardiff comic con?
    What do you watch/read? Actually-I might update my signature to include my fav anime/manga read/watched and currently reading/watching!

    I believe so, but the capital is ridiculously hard to get to from North Wales by public transport - I have to go through Shrewsbury to get there by train, and if I'm crossing the border anyway, might as well go to an expo in the Midlands instead. :p:

    I'm watching a lot at the moment - the full list of everything I have on the go is here, though the summarised version would be Legend of the Galactic Heroes, Honey and Clover and eighteen ongoing series, my favourites of which are Attack on Titan, Genshiken Nidaime and Hunter x Hunter. Manga-wise, the same situation. I'm mostly reading After School Nightmare, Letter Bee and Here is Greenwood at the moment, but am collecting a total of twenty series.

    Having your favourite series in your sig is a great idea! It could promote discussion about them, or make it easier for people to recommend you similar anime and manga if you'd like. :yes: I used to do that... but then my Top 5 became a Top 50, so I thought I'd switch to a list of what I've watched recently instead.

    Anyone know where I can find the 6th OVA of Fairy Tail which was released yesterday in sub format, can't find it anywhere.
    Read the manga chapter for it (awesome!) and wanna see it in anime form. XD

    Not a bad selection IMO - Trigun is a series I heard and saw recommended all the time when I first got into anime, though these days less people seem to have watched the 90s classics. Ga-Rei -Zero- isn't as well known as the others, but personally I think it's awesome, and the first episode is especially memorable. Lastly, K-ON! should provide some variation from the plot and action of the other two. :yes: That's the kind of screening I liked to see in my uni's society, a good mix of old and new anime of different genres, and not just the really popular stuff that most fans will have seen already.

    Aberystwyth Anime Soc met from 6:30 PM until 9 PM twice a week, though a lot of us showed up at 6 PM to socialise before the screening itself, then went to the pub after until midnight, so it was usually 12 hours out of my week. Didn't affect me at all, I just planned my work around it, even at Masters level. So unless your course is ridiculously intensive, I doubt 4 hours a week will make any difference at all. :nah:
    How many people were in your anime society?

    I think I can safely say that another sub forum for anime will not happen.

    I've also been accepted to uni this year, definitely will be checking out my anime society there too. It'd be nice to make some friends IRL who are as into it as I am so that I can cosplay/go to cons with them I currently only have my brother to go to cons with :/ My best friend watches anime as well but he only watches a few series here and there, not really into it. I'm also lucky to be going to a uni which has a Go society -- always wanted to try out the game since I'm a huge fan of Hikaru no Go :^_^:

    It varied hugely from year to year. In my first year, I think there were just over 100 members on paper, though only ~30 of us showed up to the first social, and the number slowly decreased over the weeks as people made other friends and commitments (or if they decided they didn't like what was being shown). :p: There was probably a core group of 10 people, and a few others who came and went.

    I think the soc was at its most active in my third year of undergrad, or during my masters year, when there were a good 20 people dedicated enough to go to the late night socials, and sometimes up to twice that many in the screening itself. :yes: Not bad for a small town university, though I'm sure that it's nothing compared with bigger universities. :giggle:

    So many interesting looking series, so little free time... I know the feeling. :p: I've limited my A-P want to watch list to just the stuff I already have downloaded or on DVD, ready and waiting to be watched, and even then it's 70 titles. No doubt there would be hundreds more if I included shows I don't have but would like to. :giggle:
