InformationAnime News Network is pretty much the biggest anime-related site there is. It's got the greatest database, the biggest industry support, the most trusted news, and plenty of extra features such as reviews and articles.
I want to put up a site to contest them. We don't need the database - there are plenty of anime databases out there - but the problem is, we need the news. The reason I want to contest ANN is that their site isn't really run by anime fans. The articles and reviews tend to have a bitter and cynical approach to anime, as if the writers have long stopped caring about the culture. I want to have a site run by real fans who actually enjoy anime and, to put it frankly, don't feel the need to bitch about it all the time.
The trouble is, I don't know anyone willing to create a news stream like ANN has. What makes ANN such a powerful site is the strength of their journalism and industry support that gives them an air of 'officiality' above all other anime sites. I want to gain that same officiality for a site run by real fans, for real fans.
So, here's what I need: I need people who can do news - who keep up to date with everything going on in the industry, stateside and overseas, and can be available to post about these things. I could also use more dedicated writers interested in talking about anime from the perspective of a real fan, and not as a disenfranchised worker who watches anime like it's the hardest thing in the world to do.
And what's more, as you can probably see, I'm fairly new to this sort of thing. If you have suggestions even on how to go about all this and how to set up my game plan, those are welcome, too. All those interested, please discuss in the forum! Thanks!
