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.

I was glad I was able to contribute, although I'm not sure how many people would care about an obscure mangaka like Kago. From the looks of things other writers are more than willing to cover more mainstream people, so I'm glad I can try to give some exposure to lesser known people in the industry. The article was meant to be an introductory piece anyway.

Hopefully this actually catches on, I'd like to see other people in the community take a jab at writing too.

Check out our new featured article club as a quality alternative to MAL's featured articles. Our first issue has been published:
Among others me and Sami/LoneWolf have contributed articles and we're glad for every feedback and also still looking for more people to potentially contribute!

Sounds great!! I haven't finished everything from 2015 yet, but I doubt there will be any significant changes in my top list for the year. I agree on it being a pretty great year all around. Hopefully, 2016 can keep the ball rolling.

Here are my favorites from 2015:

Happy new year guys! It's been a great year, here are my favorites of 2015.

For Winter 2016, based on what people are looking forward to (unless anyone else is going to post) we're going to have threads for Ajin, Dimension W, Prince of Stride, Boku Dake ga Inai Machi and Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu.

Here's to another great year. Cheers!

Happy Holidays indeed. My turn for the upcoming Winter Season. I managed to pick up a PS4 finally, so my anime time will likely stay limited (as it was last season), but here is what I have my eye on...

Definitely, without a doubt, watching...

Koukaku no Pandora - It is yuri, so that is all the reason I need. I hear it has finger-bang powers activation sequences, so I suspect it will be in the same yuri section as Valkyrie Drive Mermaid. Fine by me.

Ajin - It looks and sounds really interesting. I enjoyed Sidonia, so the CG doesn't scare me.

Boku Dake ga Inai Machi - This sounds like it could be really good. Love the concept and time travel aspects.

Yami Shibai 3 - First two seasons were pretty good. Really enjoying the horror shorts as of late (Pupa excluded, lol).

Musaigen no Phantom World - KyoAni

Plus, most all shorts that are subbed regularly...Sushi Police, Sekkou Boys, Ojisan to Marshmallow, Teekyuu 7, Kono Danshi are hopefuls.

Will check out initially and see from there...

Hai to Gensou no Grimgar - I'm almost always going to check out the, "suddenly trapped in a fantasy world/game" anime. This one seems like it could be one of the good ones.

Prince of Stride - Madhouse

Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu - It has been a while since I indulged in a Josei. This one seems like it could be interesting. Will check it out.

Dimension W - Don't really know much about it, but it looks and sounds interesting enough. Will check it out.

Fairy Tail Zero - Still catching up on Fairy Tail, but since it is a prequel, I shall check it out. Just not sure if I will have time to keep up with it weekly.

Anything else, I'll wait to hear from you guys/gals and the community...

Happy holidays, all!

Here's what I've got my eye on for Winter 2016:

Definitely watching:

- Musaigen no Phantom World - KyoAni.
- Sushi Police - Shorts.
- Shoujo-tachi wa Kouya wo Mezasu - Gotta take a punt on this.
- Boku Dake ga Inai Machi
- Oji-san to Marshmallow - shorts
- Dagashi Kashi - This kind of premise appeals hugely to me.
- Ansatsu Kyoushitsu 2nd Season
- Oshiete! Galko-chan - shorts.
- Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu - Ganbare, Studio DEEN...
- Durarara!!x2 Ketsu - Obvs.
- Dimension W - partially conceived in America with Funimation, I believe, so that should be interesting if nothing else
- Hai to Gensou no Grimgar - DAT PROMO ART
- Mahou Shoujo Nante Mou Ii Desu Kara. - Go on then, since apparently I really like mahou shoujo now (cheers Nid :P)
- Ajin

Maybe watching depending on how insane my workload is in the new year:

- Haruchika ~Haruta to Chika wa Seishun Suru~
- Active Raid -Kidou Kyoushuushitsu Dai Hakkei-
- Divine Gate
- Koukaku no Pandora
- Bubuki Buranki
- Rainbow Days - Looks exactly like Kimi to Boku but with much less appealing art design. Potential BLERRRGH, potential yeah-this-is-fine.
- Ooya-san wa Shishunki!

I am fully ignoring the second season of Akagami no Shirayuki-Hime. I WAS SO BORED by the first season. So bored. Pure-romance shows continue to really not be my cup of tea.

Thank goodness for this season being relatively small ;__; Picking up 30+ shows each season is just fucking ridiculous but I can't stop myself. At least this time I'm more limited.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, hope everyone is enjoying their breaks. (Ned Stark voice) Winter is coming!

So it's time to figure out what anime we're going to have for Winter 2016. I gotta say I did not find too much appealing just from the descriptions and PV's, but there are always some sleeper hits, so I'll keep my eyes open.


DRRRx2 Ketsu- Might as well finish up this series. Also the last season was actually not that bad. Had some good moments here and there. I think it's just difficult to focus on just one or two characters, when they have such a massive cast and keep expanding it.

Boku Dake ga Inai Machi- Been reading the manga and I like what I've read so far. Kind of similar to Harukana Mach E, which I think was done better, but this still has a lot of potential IMO.

Ajin-Even though it's cgi it looks really interesting and Polygon have proved they can do good work with Sidonia. I've heard good things about the manga too, so let's hope they manage to pull of that incredibly rare feat of making a good horror anime.

Yami Shibai 3- Speaking of good horror anime, using shorts seems like it's working pretty dam well.


Dimension W- The main character looks cool... that's it really. The premise could be good, but honestly who knows.

Bubuki Buranki- Premise seems cool... hopefully it doesn't suck lol

Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu- Heard the OVA for this was really good and I like edo-period stuff in general. I just hope it doesn't suffer from the typical melodrama of other josei shows.

Dagashi Kashi- The premise intrigues me and I see a lot of people on the forum use the main character as their avatar so I'm curious... yeah I'm really reaching here lol.

Prince of Stride: Alternative- I honestly only care, cause it's Madhouse...

Shoujo-tachi wa Kouya wo Mezasu- I liked the music in the PV... yeah that's it.

LoneWolf | Dec 20, 2015 5:11 PM
I fixed all the ones for this season and the stickies, but yeah going back and doing everything is a bit unrealistic.
