After doing the Spring 2015 Anime Guide (with help from Dream and Mastermenos) and the Manga Hub Guide, I feel we might need a hub thread for all the reviews. A growing forum thread needs a hub thread.
This is the prototype format. I'm trying to think the most effective way to organize and link to all reviews published in this forum. In the old site, we have an automated index system due to the wiki system. For this forum, we don't have a wiki system or an index one. I think the one way right now is by Yearly Archives, but that has its cons, too.
Here's the Gdoc so you can view the reviews and search it by writer, franchise, etc.
What shows are you reviewing? I was thinking of reviewing Charlotte. Dream has said he's done with reviewing the summer shows. I was thinking of shows I had a lot commitment to and enough material to review it.
Taka Well shows i've seen. Think i'll be focusing on relatively new shows and some a bit obscure short ones from 2000-2007. Well i was planning on doing some summer ones myself, though probably not the ones Dream plans. Planning on still doing Monster Musume, maybe Sky Wizards Academy (though it'd make something for Dream's ani-crap i think) and Overlord when it ends. After that will do some of the slightly darker older shows like Akame ga Kill, Hellsing Ultimate and Terra Formars.
So no Charlotte for me, haven't watched that one. Mainly watch action and somethimes Ecchi.
My bad, I was asking what summer shows are you going to review?
I'll leave Monster Musume and Overlord to you then. I realized with ProBoards, the review section is going to change. What do we do if we have 2 folks doing reviews of the same franchise? In the old site, we had an automated review section which allowed multiple reviews of the same show.
Planning to review Charlotte, GATE, and Food Wars.
Didn't notice you pinned it. Thanks. Because of the new site, we're not getting users from personality orientation and bloggers. With discussion threads being more emphasized than the old site, we are not going to see episode or chapter reviews, new reviews.
Added Dream's GTO, FLCL, Aura: Koga Maryuin Added Mastermenos's Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid, Wooser Added Takashichea's Garokawa film
I updated my review section and divided them between the non-event ones and the Special Event ones. I thought this was better than a hub thread for the XIV Days of Darkness because I thought it would be a waste of a thread when we have this one around.
Dream: Looks like a remake of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni will be airing in July. The original seiyuu from the 2000s series will reprise their roles for the remake and judging from the animation, looks like it will have more polish to it compared...

Dream: ...to the 2000s series.

Taka: That's interesting to hear. Didn't know it was going to get a remake.

Dream: Guess I'm gonna focus on wrapping up Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken whenever it comes out today. Been one of my favorites for the season.
Mar 22, 2020 16:44:54 GMT
Taka: I need to catch up or drop/put on hold whatever series I tried.
Mar 22, 2020 21:25:15 GMT
Taka: 1 confirmed death in my hometown next to 19 confirmed cases. I heard the police are fining folks for not practicing social distancing on Facebook.

Dream: At least in New York right now, they're not enforcing it. But non-essential employers who aren't abiding by shutting down at this point will be fined and shut down at this point.

Master Menos: Had some serious personal trouble go on, but now I'm through it. On-Topic, where I'm in, everything but the stores (and possibly the restaurants) are closed down.

Taka: They closed off beaches and parks along bike paths as well as extending K-12 school closure to mid May while colleges are cancelled for the semester.

CosmicNoirTear: Everything closed on my part. I live by a bunch of shopping centers. All of the are ghost towns. Hopefully means most people where I live are taking this seriously. Also got laid off from my job two weeks ago.
Mar 29, 2020 2:46:08 GMT
Dream: My county has 6 confirmed cases. Restaurants and bars have been on take-out or delivery only for about a couple weeks now since New York's the hardest hit state. Hasn't been too different for me any who since I've been out of work and tight on money...
Mar 29, 2020 15:11:51 GMT
Dream: ...to do anything outside of getting essentials and job hunting in recent months. Though with the state pretty much on lockdown, likely gonna have a rough time finding any employer to work with in-person for a while.

El_Directo: Stay safe guys
Mar 29, 2020 20:08:55 GMT
Taka: I think the only thing not closed for mass gathering other than essential services would be funerals in my area. The mayor and staff have been pretty busy in clarifying things in press releases. Edit: my mistake. Funerals are closed.
Mar 29, 2020 21:52:25 GMT
Dream: Gonna try whipping up a review for Dorohedoro at some point tomorrow. Find that I have quite a bit to cover with the series.
