Simul Watch Club

Information
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.



UPCOMING SIMULWATCHES:

Starting Monday September 8th there's gonna be a simulwatch for
Mobile Suit Gundam: The 8th MS Team
There will be a discussion thread and we'll watch 1-2 episodes a day.

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

Like battosai mentioned, I too will be watching less this season. I want to finish up everything I have fallen behind on, plus my time is much more limited lately.

Definitely watching and looking forward to...

Amagi Brilliant Park - Yeah, I'm drawn to the eye candy :P. I'm generally a fan of KyoAni's work as most of you know.
Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Blade Works - I'm super hyped for this. I just love the series in general.
Kiseijuu - Another one I am super hyped for. No explanation necessary here.
Log Horizon 2 - It is no SAO ;), but it is still awesome! Excited for S2.
Mushishi Zoku Shou 2 - Of course.
Nanatsu no Taizai - I've heard wonderful things. Pretty excited for this shounen.
Psycho Pass 2 - I really liked S1, especially the second half of it, so looking forward to continuing the story where it left off.
Terra Formars - I'm aboard the hype-train. Also, the OVA got me interested. I do think there is a 50-50 chance I'll think it sucks, but I worry about that when the time comes.

Also, I'll be watching any and all shorts.

I'll most likely look into these and see what is up...

Inou-Battle wa Nichijou-kei no Naka de - Trigger, though I don't have high hopes.
Sanzoku no Musume Ronja - Ghibli and I'm generally a fan of CGI if it is done right.

Everything else, I'm going to wait and hear/see from you guys and others.

It's been a long time, wb Ardamaeus!

Suuuppp. I should really make a new banner for the club. I'll get around to that eventually. I'll be popping in and out more, probably, although not consistently XP.

Hi/Welcome Back Ardamaeus!

Welcome to the club. :D

Wow, hai guys ;P.

Looking forward to:

Parasyte (It's happening!)
Mushishi Zoku Shou 2 (well)
Log Horizon 2 (sequel and stuff)
Psycho-Pass 2 (hopefully it doesn't get even more pretentious or even improves on how the first season was handled)
Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso (Music theme makes me excited, hope it avoids the shounen romance clichés though)
Terra Formars (Love the setting, love pulp, I'm fairly sure I'll have a lot of fun with this despite everyone saying it's crap)
World Trigger (WSJ adaption by Toei so I'm game, also sounds interesting. I'm calling it now, this will be better than Nanatsu no Taizai but less popular for sure)
Yowamushi Pedal 2 (more sports is always good, and it's just getting serious so I expect season 2 > season 1)


Will watch:

Akatsuki no Yona (shoujo/fantasy sounds nice)
Donten ni Warau (more shoujo fantasy still sounds nice)
FSN (Gonna be better than the original but I doubt it will be better than F/Z because the cast is still full of teens and lolis. I don't think DEEN was the only issue I had with the first anime, but we'll see)
Kokkuri-san (I bet this is 3 minutes and it sounds decently fun)
Chaika Season 2 (hopefully less tiresome)
Ronja (I don't hate CGI so nothing keeps me from enjoying this)
Yuuki Yuuna wa Yuusha de Aru (Sounds quirky enough since it's an original anime, and I generally have a fondness for s-o-l with some unique/supernatural aspects to it)
Hi☆sCoool! SeHa Girls (confirmed short)


Giving a try but expecting to drop a bunch of those early on:

Amagi Brilliant Park (business comedy sounds like it could be fun)
Denki-gai no Honya-san (Otaku comedy s-o-l series, could go either way)
Garo: Honoo no Kokuin (Tokusatsu adaption? It looks trashy but that could be part of the charm)
Grisaia no Kajitsu (A mess of tags and one of them is harem so I'm not too optimistic)
Inou-Battle wa Nichijou-kei no Naka de (From the synopsis and fact that it adapts a LN I wouldn't have touched this, but it's Trigger)
Danna ga Nani wo Itteiru ka Wakaranai Ken (sounds cringey but could be fun and I suspect 3-minute episodes, if it isn't I might not watch)
Kaitou Joker (sounds fun if it isn't too kiddy)
Magic Kaito 1412 (Hope this works as a standalone unlike the Kindaichi sequel)
Nanatsu no Taizai (Ecchi tag for the source material so I'm pessimistic)
Orenchi no Furo Jijou (Could be a fun comedy)
Shirobako (PA Works can only improve after Glasslip and the anime industry setting might be fun)
Sora no Method (new studio, original story, could go anywhere but the abundance of generic girls makes it more likely to go nowhere)


No thanks unless convinced otherwise:

Cross Ange (Sunrise mecha with female pilots and an extremely convoluted synopsis, not for me)
Daitoshokan no Hitsujikai (adult PC game adaption. Need I say more?)
Girlfriend (adaption of a phone dating sims? lol)
Ookami Shoujo ("Sata takes advantage of Erika's weakness and treats her like his dog." Nuff said. I don't want any shoujos centered about heroines that revel in getting treated like dogshit)
Ore, Twintails ni Narimasu. (Generic LN with genderbending and probably a harem. Easy to dodge this bullet)
Shingeki no Bahamut (Card Game adaption :/)
Tribe Cool Crew (no MAL page? Does it even exist?)
Trinity Seven (Go fuck you with your harem and ecchi and random magic stuff, the epitome of genericness in terms of synopsis)
Madan no Ou to Vanadis (Looks nice but has ecchi and harem tags all over the place so a big middlefinger from me)
8118
Ushinawareta Mirai wo Motomete (the synopsis doesn't really say anything so I'll just go by the fact that it adapts a VN and has one guy and lots of girls on the cover)




The rest is all stuff related to franchise I haven't seen or completed yet so I ignored them. Only one of those I will eventually watch are the gundams though, but not before I've caught up with the franchise.

@ar2000: I generally don't feel very motivated to watch finished shows and find it easier to meet weekly deadlines for what's currently airing. Plus, that week between episodes gives me more time to think about the show if necessary.
