Anime Forum Rules & Etc.



Hello, and welcome to the Anime section of the forum. Here (or the various sub-forums), you may discuss anything anime related: airing shows, upcoming shows, old shows from decades past, voice actors, etc.

 

Recommendations or reviews of anime should be done in the Recommendation & Reviews board.

Please direct your perverted side to the Mature Realm (18+) section of the forum.

Due to the nature of this forum, we have some additional rules with regards to how spoilers are used and anime series threads. Please take a moment to review these forum-specific rules below so that the Anime section moves along smoothly.

Anime Series Threads



As much of Anime forum's discussion centers around anime series, there are a few rules on the creation of discussion threads to smooth browsing experience in the forums and enhance general post aesthetics. Please make sure to post your [Airing] discussion thread in the Airing Anime section of the forums. Threads for series, movies, OVAs, and so forth that have recently aired (but do not quality for the %5BAiring%5D tag) go in the Airing Anime section of the forums as well. For discussion on series that does not currently have a thread and has been more than one season since the last episode aired, please make a thread for that series in the Anime section of the forums.

Feel free tag a thread as [Airing] or [Not Yet Aired] when it is first made - you do not need any permissions to do this. Please note though for [Not Yet Aired] threads, the requirements for the first post are the same as [Airing] threads - so there needs to be at least enough information to start some form of discussion, and not just a link to some far-off anime billions of years into the future.

All [Airing], [Not Yet Aired], and Finished Airing threads must contain:

• A image at the very top of the post. Preferably hosted on Imgur.
• A link to the series' MyAnimeList page.
• A short description (synopsis) on what the series is about. Can be copy-pasted from another site.
• Something you, the original poster writes to start the discussion.

If a thread does not follow these rules use the report button so it can be sorted.

Synopsis: The story begins with Yggdrasil, a popular online game which is quietly shut down one day; however, the protagonist Momonga decides to not log out. Momonga is then transformed into the image of a skeleton as "the most powerful wizard." The world continues to change, with non-player characters (NPCs) begining to feel emotion. Having no parents, friends, or place in society, this ordinary young man Momonga then strives to take over the new world the game has become.

Spoiler Rules



A spoiler is any event which has already happened in the source material, but has not happened in the timeline (plot) of the series adaptation yet. Anything that fits into that definition will need to abide by the rules below.

hi there


This is a spoiler tag - type

[spoiler][/spoiler]

 to create one.
 



Anime Series Threads - this includes everything in Airing Anime and finished series in Anime.

Note: All airing threads spoil the show up to the latest episode, and a thread on a series that has finished airing will contain discussion that will spoil the entire show. Do not enter a anime series thread unless you have watched the show, or you don't care about getting spoiled. The reason for this approach is one cannot usefully participate in discussion unless they have actually seen the show, and not to bog down threads with questions such as "Is this good? Should I watch it?"

  • Refrain from discussing a show beyond the episode currently aired; if you do, use spoiler tags.
  • Screenshots and what happened in the latest episode are not spoilers.
  • Speculation using information already presented are not spoilers.
  • The spoiler tag is exclusive to spoilers, only use if the discussion fits the spoiler definition (see top of post).

All Other Threads - i.e., Anime of the Season threads, Seasonal Chart threads, News/Announcement threads, etc.

  • Any detail beyond generic information must be put inside spoiler tags.
  • Put posts in a spoiler if you are unsure if it's a spoiler or not.

If there is a post that contains a spoiler not in the spoiler tag, report it immediately. Multiple offenses of failure to spoiler tag spoilers will result in a warning.

Anime of the Season Picks


Anime of the Season is a official best anime of the season poll based on Kametsu's userbase votes. Each season, shows are voted on to see which was the most liked. Shows are considered to be in the season if their first episode falls within the time period. Check the charts (found in each seasons' thread) if you're unsure whether the show you plan to nominate falls in the given season.

The Voting Process:
At the end of the season, when most if not all 1-cour shows have finished airing, a [Nominations] thread will be made, where users can nominate a series from that season they think deserves to be called the best anime of the season.

A series cannot be listed in AotS Hall of Fame twice. That means once one of its seasons is on there, it cannot appear again. This is to add diversity to the list. Spin-offs do not count (i.e. Index and Railgun).

A nomination may not be changed once it is added to the list of nominated series. Do not blindly nominate a series "just because you can"; nominate the series you are actually going to vote for.

[Nominations] threads stay open for 1 week.
The nominated series will then be converted into a poll in a [Voting] thread for open voting by the AnimeBytes public.

[Voting] threads stay open for 4 weeks.
The winning series will be placed into the AotS Hall of Fame thread, for the glory of everyone to see.

Everything before 2015 was decided by me so that we'd actually have a decent sized Hall of Fame list. If you strongly disagree with one of the suggestions, feel free to not care too much about it. Anything from 2015 and on was decided by the userbase voting.
