Default Find Your Anime Buddy! II


(Header and signatures kindly provided by Sandbar: you amazing graphic artist, you! ^_^)

Welcome to Find Your Anime Buddy, a hub where you can find others to share your anime experiences with by watching the same movies/series simultaneously and having interesting current discussions as you go! Here’s how it works:

1) Make a post in this thread stating what anime you intend to watch or have just started and would like others to watch with you - maximum of three anime at a time! Anime must have finished airing at time of request (if it is still airing, you don't need a buddy group - just join in the relevant Currently Airing Anime subforum thread).

2) I will add your request to the opening post like so:

[Cowboy Bebop] – requested by VivisQueen, buddies Sheex, Uriel, Sandbar (open)

3) Others who also want to watch that anime will post a request to become your anime buddy

4) You contact each other via this thread or PM and agree upon a schedule e.g. one episode every Thursday, or two episodes a day, or one-day marathon! :o I will add the details of what you decide to the entry for future reference

5) Watch the anime, share your opinions and have discussions as you watch in the Specific Anime Discussion forum, the What are you currently watching? thread, IRC (#anime-planet.com at irc.rizon.net), in a vent channel kindly offered by Pidjiken, or privately via PM

6) Don’t forget to make recommendations for the AniRec when you’re done and come back to make new requests! :D

Buddy groups can include as few as two people, and how you organise the schedule is completely up to you. You can also join as many buddy groups as you want. FYAB is a great way to meet others with similar tastes, check what others are watching/want to watch, and to have current discussions as you’re experiencing the show.

If you have any further questions, please ask.

This will be the new location of FYAB for the time being until Veev comes back. At that point a fusion ceremony will be performed to return control to Veev.

Just to say, it's been great fun moderating FYAB. Only thing is that I need to concentrate on a couple of tough things in the next few months, and if it all works out, for the next few years. I have been slacking lately on my updates, and I figured what's best for FYAB is to pass it on to someone who can dedicate their time properly and make sure the club runs as happily as it has been since its foundation. Glad you guys are still enjoying the hub, and hope you continue to find it a good way to discover new shows with new people. I wish LizardLaw lots of success moderating and am no doubt she'll do an amazing job.

I'll still be around in the forum, so if anyone needs to PM me about anything, please do so. :)

PS. Thanks, Pidj, the God of Admins.

Oh, lookie, a new temp worker here :D Pleased to meet ya, Lizard! Maybe I should try to be more active on the FYAB-club again...

Speaking of which, the Silver Fang-group has disbanded and I ended up watching it by myself later, so that can be removed now, thanks!

Small tip. You actually want to link to the forum thread in specific anime discussion, not the anime entry on the main site. That way people can easily get to the thread where they can discuss the anime. If there isn't a thread yet, you'd tell them to create one. So for Princess Tutu, you'd actually want to use this link.

Thumbs up on the speediness of the update though
