    Welcome to the grand reopening of Find Your Anime Buddy overtaken by yours truly Mama Tents!​

    In this cozy hub you can find people to share and indulge in your anime fortunes and misfortunes by watching the same movies/series simultaneously and having interesting current discussions as you go, potentially bonding and forming friendships lasting all of eternity!

    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). Do not forget to provide a link to the A-P main site anime entry of your choosing!

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

    [Ace wo Nerae!] – requested by Naga, buddies HasseRovdjur, Taekwondoin, ZetsubouKaiji, GenericUser (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 and IRC (#anime-planet.com at irc.rizon.net)

    6) ALERT! Don’t forget to make recommendations for the AniRec when you’re done and come back to make new requests and notify me in this thread when the buddy group is done with the anime of their choice!

    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.

    Lets get the buddy groups going again, I've been involved in some great groups in the past, watching some great shows and having good discussions with the people buddying.

    Ace wo Nerae is still open, so if you want some 70's shoujo sports goodness, get involved. Thread is here!

    Sign me up, I've taken a break from these for far too long. No promises I'll be able to stick it through though.

    I want to be part of the new reboot's maiden event! Count me in, as 8MangaMan has said, I've taken a break from these for far too long!

    (I might be delayed in starting though, and have to play catchup at first, because I will be out of town on Friday, and not returning until Sunday.

    Are there going to be new FYAB banners?

    Big congrats to Tents for stepping up to guide this ship!

    Okay! No problem. And thank you.

    About the banners: We currently have no one to make them but if someone wants to contribute and has time, they are very welcome to do it. It will take a while till I get to make them as my computer is toast and I don't have the necessary tools to make them not look sucky at the moment.

    I can make a couple this weekend. Were you wanting a badge like the old Anime Buddy group, or a banner like DTAB?

    Great! I would appreciate your help.

    Maybe both so the people could choose which one they want to use? I feel like variety is a good thing as long as it isn't too much of a pain in the ass for you.

    No pain at all! I enjoy making banners and I haven't in a while so it's a win-win. I'll do both, no harm in it.
