Simul Watch Club

Here you can look for people who want to watch the same shows as you in simul watch mode.

In particular, we are a club for finding someone else to simul watch a show that has already been completed but that you and another member would both like to watch, but we also follow some ongoing shows so there should be something of interest for everyone.

A simul watch can be a great way to clear some of your backlog! Just find someone else with a matching series on your ptw list and drop them a line to see if they'd like to watch it with you! You and your simul watch partner watch the episodes at about the same time (don't forget to take time zone differences into account!) then comment on each other's profile (or some other way) as you finish each episode (spoiler tags are recommended for posting on others walls, on the off chance you accidentally spoil a series for someone else who happens to check your profile). Decide beforehand how many episodes you plan to watch and which days you will both have free. The main purpose of this club is to help users find other users with whom to simul watch and make new friends!

It's a fun experience because it makes you think more about the single episodes if you collect your thoughts about them after each one and it's more personal and responsive than doing it in the episode discussion threads in the subforums.

The Rules:
1. Always use spoiler tags in the designated discussion threads and label them so it is clear if they talk about the whole series or specific episodes.
2. If you refer to a series that is not the currently discussed one you should use additional spoiler tags if necessary, even if the second series is also one we are watching in the club.


Starting Monday July 28th:
Diary of Anne Frank
Watch the movie on your own time and share your thoughts in the discussion thread.
Alternatively there will also be a Skype group watching the movie on Thursday July 31st at 5pm EST.

Starting Monday July 28th 6:30pm EST:
Sexy Commando Gaiden
8 episodes a day (8 minutes per episode).
Skype Group with optional discussion thread if requested.

PM Higashi_no_Kaze if you want to join any of the simulwatches.

Welcome vis4vanity!

Yeah I've been meaning to read more of Matsumoto's manga ever since I finished Gogo Monster. I heard Takemitsu Zamurai is also really amazing. Theres just a lot of great stuff out there I want to read/watch :( Just never enough time lol.

Hey there, vis4vanity, welcome and stuff!

Many of the shots in Ping Pong are directly lifted from the manga and the anime even adopts panel transitions to retain the experience of the source material.

LiuwdJelly asked: “What made you decide to use split-screen reaction shots? What was the hardest part of adapting the manga’s visuals?”
The medium of manga has its own expression of frames (such as how you can compare each frame to the one that came before it, and how multiple frames can make up one overall picture), and I wanted to try my hand at doing that in the anime medium. Also, for this particular show I wanted to use art from the original manga while preserving the exact same meaning it had there. In manga, you can switch angles whenever you want, so there were many cases where even if I’d wanted to use that material as-is, it didn’t follow the laws of video.

.....seriously guys who haven't yet read the 'Ping Pong' manga should go read it too, the drawing is so imaginative and brilliant, the author manages to convey so much emotion in one page of his art as volumes of other super popular mangas fail to do.....spectacular stuff.....

Still, Top 30 for a plain ecchi series with ahrem elements and blatant gamer gratification? I mean, at least Monogatari has some witty dialogue...

Not that it matters, MAl has a lot of ranking inconsistencies that as a whole prevent me from taking the top lists seriously.

But now back to the important stuff: Rewatching Ping Pong.

Well, Mushishi is rated higher than NGNL and Jojo might be as well when it finishes so yeah, NGNL isn't even the highest ranked anime of the season so the whole rating issue is overblown in my opinion.

I still wait for the adaption of an Asano manga. Sadly, it seems very unlikely.

I only have checked the Ping Pong manga for a few chapters a while ago to prepare for the adaption, but it is a great experience as well. I should finish it in due time.

NGNL is objectively the best anime ever.... I mean, cause like, MAL rankings are indicative of objective quality, right?
