Critics and Connoisseurs

Founded in early 2008, Critics and Connoisseurs is perhaps the most long-standing club with uninterrupted activity on this site. The goal of the club is to come up with a list of highly recommended quality shows that are exemplary either within its genre or universally. For this purpose, we have threads to nominate anime/manga titles and, once they get selected, other threads where they are subjected to popular vote to decide whether or not they are included in the list. These activities were ran on a weekly basis for more than 12 years (with both an anime and a manga title being voted each week). Nowadays the approach is slightly different, as unlike then, we already have a list that is more or less stable. Hence we run the activities on a monthly pace, giving the members more time to give the spotlighted titles a look. Entry Requirements:

Ah, and I was always wondering what those numbers were about! Thanks for explaining, Hiro!

HiroM_ | May 3, 10:01 AM
It's still the same. Actually, the number you see at the end of the thread title like (165/33) means the manga has 165 chapters and you need to have read at least 33 to vote.
