Manga subforum?

Postby pacotacoshell » Sun Apr 07, 2013 9:09 pm

Has anyone ever mentioned adding this to the list of subforums? I always wondered why there wasn't a subforum of this before. I know a lot of us here read and love manga, and I think we'd have some really good discussions if there were one.

It was mentioned quite a few times (and I think it was there at one time?), but the user base was always too small to be worth it ^^;

Is it really? I see a ton of people on the anime discussion threads talking about manga. Maybe a gauge of interest is in order! :sorcerer:

What about just changing it to the anime/manga discussions and labeling threads as

Ex.

Magi (Anime)
Madoka Magica (Manga)

I always just discussed the manga in the actual anime thread. XD With spoiler tags and a note that it's from the manga of course.

But I like the idea! Especially since I read A LOT of manga and I think it's pretty cool for those series that are manga only. :)

I'm fine with yue's proposal, though I too have to note that often enough manga discussion gets naturally implemented in an anime discussion, since comparisons will easily arise and so on.
I think it'd currently fit better to just make the topics general for both anime and manga and use spoiler tags as sensible?
Also I suppose implementing manga into the section would give a new purpose to the request thread! |:>

Yeah but we just compare the manga with the anime most of the time. I want to fanboy with each chapter that releases! :awesome:

Dunno about this. It's like having two completely different discussions in one thread, and I think it'd be kinda rude to the anime watchers if there are some serious spoilers in the same thread from the manga. Plus the fact that spoiler tags are used so much to begin with it'd be hard to separate this from that.

If anything, I agree with Yue's idea to make separate threads for the manga and anime. There would probably be a ton of activity (moreso than now), and some active threads might even end up on the 2nd page (which normally never happens), but it's better than nothing! :up:

Just a question: Shouldn't a whole seperate section be made for the manga posts, maybe "Manga Discussion" or something, seeing as this section is "Anime Series Discussion"? Or possibly changing the name of this section, "Anime/Manga Discussion"?

This is currently a test run to see the interest in manga threads. I personally cannot do changes to sections, unfortunately. A section of its own would make more sense due to the space the topics would take up, but only if there indeed is the user activity to warrant it.

Yeah, I didn't see a problem with the manga being discussed in the same thread as the anime it's adapted from, but I guess the problem with that is discerning between the manga spoilers apart from the anime spoilers. I'd imagine it would probably be better with a manga subforum, seeing all the space the manga threads take place (then again the thread on the bottom of the page hadn't had activity for about a month and Hunter x Hunter, the one that would've been on the bottom of the page without the manga threads had no activity for almost two months), plus there might be some manga that would want to be discussed that doesn't have an anime adaption yet. I guess the worst case scenario would be another dead subforum such as anime screencaps.

I'll offer one question: what about manga which doesn't have anime? There's a lot of it. Most of the manga I read these days doesn't have anime. And in the case of Aoi Hana and Hourou Musuko, the anime are super thin slices of really, really long series. Hourou Musuko's anime is pretty much a middle section, and Aoi Hana is like less than the first third of the manga.
