Anime History Association

Welcome to the A.H.A., the place where you get to say AHA! a lot. This is a group made of, by, and for persons interested in the history of anime and manga, as well as the cultural evolution and other factors related to it. One need not be a historian to join (though if you are, that means you should join!). Anyone with a relative interest is welcome to come in and add to a discussion. Have a question about the origin of some genre, plot device, or character? Not sure what that ultra-obscure anime you saw when you were a kid was called? Curious about why anime characters don't look Japanese and have outrageous hair styles? This is the place for you. We currently have an open membership. This is to promote the expansion of the community and to allow anyone with even the slightest interest in the discussion and exchange related to this group to be included. After all, history is for the masses. [Sponsored by ARIA - Anime Research Institute of America]

Hello guys, I do not remember if I have already made​​, but I take this opportunity to do it now! Nice to meet you!

I think in the particular format MAL allows a separate thread for each letter would be impractical. A thread with multiple posts is another issue, of course. Mulling over the issue a bit while I recover from a convention trip.

Hi, sorry for the late response. :p We get spikes in activity every now and then, but I don't always pick up on it at first.

An index/dictionary isn't out the question. It's one of my side projects that I've been working on through a group called ARIA. Various dictionaries/encyclopedias exist in some form, but I'm not adverse to making one here in spare time. Also helps get outside user input.
