Default Announcing a new weekly Anime-Planet column on Crunchyroll!

Hi guys,

It's been a little over a month since we partnered with Crunchyroll, and now, I'm happy to announce that they've asked us to write a weekly column as a part of the news team!

Once a week, I'll post another episode of "Anime-Planet Recommends...", where your recommendations, most popular anime and top loved/hated characters are showcased for the past week.

Check out the first article now!

You might notice that for some of the rec pairs, I called out several of you, and parts of your 'reason' text (or, summarized it). I hope this will encourage you to make lots of recommendations from week to week! Your name could be called out in lights for all of Anime-Planet, as well as Crunchyroll's community!

I hope you enjoy the new column! I'll announce them each week on the site's Facebook and Twitter pages, and will post them somewhere undetermined in the forum too.

Wow, big props to AP for getting this far. It's nice to see the CR community is so hyped for these columns too.

Not a Naruto fan, but I will look forward to Sasuke's Corner every week.

Nice article. I think next time you should address how people sometimes will first read Anime-Planet as Animal Planet. There was a comment about it this time and a comment about it in the partnering announcement with Crunchy as well, haha.

Nice! Just read it. A really useful way to get the latest from AP to a different audience.

Since you mention you are happy for feedback: I recommend you try less breadth and more depth. So cover fewer recs in one post and rather try some kind of analysis based on maybe the show or character. Like a mini show/character review.

And alternate between different types/combinations of recs if possible. So one week we get a popular show, another week we get popular characters, then followed by an analysis of a recommendation by AP members etc.

On the recs front one thing we'll definitely need is more recs! Barely anyone makes them recently, so there aren't a lot of weekly ones to choose from... I'm hoping this article series encourages people to make more recs, more frequently, so I'll have more content to go off of :)

CR specifically asked me to not have review type content, more like stating aggregation info and analysis on that level, but not so much opinion-based content. One challenge I think I'm going to run into is just the sheer time it will take to maintain this, so I may have to go for the breath approach if only because it's easier for me to show 'here's some of the top recs', rather than having to know about the content in question :) (especially with the redesign coming up, I have no time to watch anime at all anymore ;__; so I'm very out of the loop with why the trends are happening)

Pretty cool little read!

Makes sense that CR wouldn't want any content that would give personal opinions on shows as well. Although i do like a personal touch to things rather than just listing recs, so i think the shows you know about yourself would be more interesting to read.

It's made me feel quite bad though since i've been really slacking with recommendations lately. Normally i try to put up as many as i can early on for current season shows, but i keep forgetting this time around. So i'll have to get on that tomorrow, especially since i watch most of the shows that air each season.

Awesome and nice read, Sothis!

Maybe I should also start to write some more recs if I got some more free time at hand...

Thoughts;
#1 - Awesome and great job!
#2 - Perhaps this could motivate me and hopefully others to make more recs now.
#3 - Uhh... I doubt CR would want my name to appear on there...
#4 - I wonder if I should part with my name even though it feels like an important component of me here on AP... it was completely unintentionall as I didn't know of the word but it has brought laughs to lots of people...
#5 - I'll give this some time and again, nice work Sothis! haven't been watching much currently airing anime lately
