Anime Discussion Rules

The following rules apply only to the Anime and Manga Discussion boards in addition to the Site & Forum Guidelines.
  1. Anime/Manga specific threads should go into their respective sub-boards. Examples:
    1. Did anyone feel this way after the end of ____ ?
    2. What order should I watch ____ in? / Do I need to have watched ____ before ____?
    3. What chapter should I start from?
    4. Season 1 vs. Season 2 / Anime version vs. manga version.
    5. Any questions about characters in a specific anime/manga.
  2. Please refrain from creating threads that do not encourage discussion; e.g. random "xx vs. yy", picture collecting, simple listing, etc.
  3. Do not create threads that ask about information that can easily be seen on user profiles or database entry pages (e.g. favorite anime/manga/character).
  4. Do not ask where to download/watch anime or where to download/read manga.
  5. Please refrain from posting thread topics which extend beyond the discussion of anime/manga as an entertainment medium to highly-debated social and/or moral issues. This includes but is not limited to: pedophilia, gender/racial equality, sexual orientation, etc.

Anime Series Episode Discussion Rules

These rules are specific to episode discussion threads and supercede the Anime/Manga Discussion Rules whenever there is a conflict.
  1. Do not start an episode discussion before you have actually seen it.
  2. Refrain from writing episode summaries or running commentaries. Please use your blog for this purpose.
  3. Posts must not contain more than one screenshot.
  4. Single phrase responses (e.g., "Good episode") do not contribute nor promote discussion and will be removed without notice.
  5. Do not ask when subs/raws will be released, or where to download/watch an episode.
  6. Refrain from comparing/conversing about whose fansubs to use or watch in the Episode Discussion.
Keep in mind that a discussion involves dialogue between users about a topic extraneous to oneself. An opinion of an episode can initiate discussion, whereas summaries and screenshots do not.

Rule #5 Added. As a result of continued toxicity surrounding topics which extend current social/moral issues to anime/manga, we will no longer be allowing these discussions in the Anime and Manga Discussion boards. While we certainly do not want to discourage critical thought of the entertainment that we consume as a society, going forward we ask users to take these discussions to other locations, such as clubs, profiles, Discord chats, etc.

+ 5. Please refrain from posting thread topics which extend beyond the discussion of anime/manga as an entertainment medium to highly-debated social and/or moral issues. This includes but is not limited to: pedophilia, gender/racial equality, sexual orientation, etc.
