Yes I've joined some and maybe they're worth it.

Aesthetic value can be recognized or experienced, but it cannot be conveyed to those who are incapable of grasping its sensations and perceptions. To quarrel on its behalf is always a blunder.

I was thinking about join anime soul since they have the most users. Have you had good experiences with the community of the ones you joined?

can't really say. I just idle in one of them which centers around simulwatching older anime, only give recs on the MAL server, am most active in one that is private filled with MAL friends, another is centered on obscure shorts and where to watch them and the last one is basically just a server for a notification bot that lets me know whenever a new MAL entries gets accepted in the DB.

I'm afraid I'm not much help when it comes to general anime servers since I only really join more specialized ones.

if you just want to talk anime then MyAnimeList discord works good enough, i just lurk there though rarely post something there, [Official] HorribleSubs is good too

the rest i follow are too specific like Code Geass, Samurai 8, One Punch Man, Jaiminis Box, etc and even the sakuga community discord called /r/NarutoSakuga

Avoid anything that's focused around something as broad as anime. The only good discords are private or focused around niche subgenres.

I feel like the ones like Animesoul are too overwhelming for me,i just join discord severs that are more niche and have a smaller amount of people so i don't feel as disoriented.

Public servers are full of spams like 99.9% of their content are worthless. But I don't use discord much anyway

I love GLT and Kaguya-sama servers though.

You mean the refurbished Gundam? Of course I have problems with it for giving us one of the lamest Char Aznable clones (I mean there are more and even lamer but he is more famous ).

deg said:

Actually I love mainstream but haven't you heard? Some fans think of if as "the greatest anime ever created" (see the topic) thus ewww.

deg said:

Another "proud" Gundam tradition tho.

deg said:

Naruto fans having deep knowledge about good animation...I believe you.

Sounds like waste of time I already know what those guys think.

Sunrise specailizes in mecha shows because of the influence of Gundam that Bandai made them do exclusively anyway so obviously they gonna copy plot elements of Gundam to Code Geass and their other mecha shows too

and lol whats wrong with Naruto? for a long running battle shonen it has plenty of Sakuga and its safe to say it has more Sakuga than One Piece too

and i made a thread dedicated on what we have discuss in the other thread but it was buried to irrelevancy anyway https://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=1813457

They're definitely worth it. So far i'm in two of them and sadly i haven't found too many people in there that are invested in 80s and 90s animes like i am tho. Still, it's worth joining some anime discords. You might even make more discord friends!

Other Sunrise mecha shows like Votoms, the Brave series and Overman King Gainer (which is made by the Gundam creator) don't...
Some Gundam series don't do that too.

But suddenly the crowd of "I hate mecha because the fights are not personal enough" discovered Code Geass and thought that it's very unique.

deg said:

It's OK I guess but the animation is quite average...which is understandable for long running series..it its fans to having to say about good animation is a bit of stretch to me.

deg said:

Bit is it "good animation" or "low budget kind of decent animation"?

deg said:
and its safe to say it has more Sakuga than One Piece too

Which is also a long running battle shounen with average animation, so the comparison is not very telling.

this is getting too offtopic here if you want to talk more about this then reply on that thread i link about sakuga instead

because your own definition of sakuga is so vague that you call sakuga on long running anime as not up to your standards? lol thats like a ok boomer moment

Thus allow me to be prejudice about some groups of fans that I have dealt with before.

deg said:

Dude we talked about this before and your issue was with my definition of animation quality.
Also you talking about 15 minutes of sakuga in an episode is going against the idea of sakuga (not to say that were a lot of dialogues ant still moments in those 15 minutes - so even the facts are against you).
If your opinion about that is based on what those /NarutoSakuga guys said to you I can not trust them thus I can not trust their Discord channel - now this is on topic.

Only when is needed - going with full animation all the time is against the sakuga principle.

deg said:

You keep repeating that and still fail to give examples which are all sakuga

deg said:

Is that your definition? (Because it's wrong and you are putting it in my mouth.)
Also have I said the that the Naruto animators (and by extension those working on battle shounen) are not talented?
No.
I said that usually those types of shows don't get enough budget/time/resources for above the average animation...with some exceptions tho but Naruto and One Piece are not such.

deg said:

Yep, it's very convenient to avoid.

what sakuga principle? lol now there is a principle for good animation?

so the Naruto vs Pain episode is not sakuga then to you heh

and lol the budget meme again here



and the reason for long running anime to have bad animation got nothing to do with budget seeing this are shown on primetime like morning timeslots so they get a lot of profit from TV ads alone, the reason for bad quality is that as more episodes are animated with no breaks or hiatus then animation schedule tigthens because of production errors piling up

The principle of sakuga is that you should have difficult to make animation only in the most important scenes...and the therm doesn't necessary mean "good" animation by some technical standard only "better".
Like you can have some very low frame animation and in certain point it gets to 8 frames per second for certain shot - this counts for sakuga too.

deg said:

Never watched it but if the quality is the same all the time - than it's not sakuga by definition because it doesn't have better moments.

deg said:

I also said some other words...but budget is important too.

Let's say that your knowledge is genuine...still it couldn't point me to the nearest show that will please me...thus maybe you are theoretically right but I have no practical use of it

It was a good discussion for me. We got a draw but I got reaffirmation about not trusting those guys.

I think the franchise-specific Discord servers tend to be better than the general anime fandom discords. This is because the anime fandom is so widely varied in tastes, while franchise-specific ones at least have some sort of more relevant common interest.

Yoink. Sleazy salesman time.

@Haunt-Me It's terrifying when @GlennMagusHarvey actually says something right, but cohesion and general similarities tends to lead to better communities. That tends to be a big barrier of entry for a lot of people in joining places like Anime Soul, or at least it's a major impact against their member retention.

But there's no need to really go so niche as to be a specific series. Look at MAL clubs specifically - a lot of them have shifted into fronts for Discord servers these days. That's kind of the main place on this site to go for Discord servers, otherwise your best bet is to make some friends who happen to have a private server.

A few examples are, like:

Ecchi fans can come check out the joint server between my clubs Harem&Ecchi and Ecchi Squad that I have in a von Habsburg-esque personal union. We're the second most active Discord server stemming from MAL, with the first being MAL's official, public server. I am very proud of as much, but it should go without saying that it's very geared towards lewdness and such and so if that's not your thing you might get put off. But if it is your thing, our doors are open, we keep our entry barriers comparatively low to the point where the verification is just to be a member of our MAL club.

Comfy Camp is currently the best place for more Slice of Life oriented activity, and that's another big-time niche fandom that's general to where you can meet a good margin of people, but not general enough to be the frankenstein's monster of fandoms that is the broader anime community. It might seem weird because their main club numbers are so low, but that was because that club is a split-off of the much larger Slice of Life club. Things went up in flames a while back between the two and the people at Comfy Camp got to keep the old server while Usagi over at the main club is trying to build up a new one with her resources of being the #5 MAL club.

Seasonal oriented fandom can be found here. If you're into seasonals, AG is a place, I guess, though they have an unnecessarily convoluted joining barrier and their rules are pretty tight-assed imo. Still, enough boosts to have the banner perk and it has some decent activity that's also comparatively focused. If that's your thing, go for it.

Those are three most active ones I know of, out of all of the ones I have an alt planted in. Or own and operate in the case of H&E/ES. I can also help find other ones if need be, even though it's a stupid political move on my part, because there's more out there.

i don't usually talk about anime on discord these days. not on servers at least because there are too many obnoxious/ignorant users.
i talk about anime with my friends on twitter/discord through private messages on occasions.
mostly i prefer to have weeb discussions with my irl friends.
