Why is Sup Forums called Sup Forums?

It implies it's more of an anime board than it is a manga one.
Kinda unfair desu.

Adrian Howard

Sup Forums isn't short for anything. It was created as a general discussion anime/manga board after /b/ went to shit (7 weeks in).

Why is Anonymous called anonymous?

It implies you are actually anonymous when infact you are associated with an IP address

Kinda stupid Desu

Manga discussion has always been in minority, and will always be.

Now don't get any board split ideas from that statement, I like how things are.

Anons seem to be inherently lazy; if someone dumps it, people will discuss it, but for some reason no-one will ever actually go out and read something and then come back to discuss it.

Anime threads absorb 90% of the shitposting and retarded bullshit that occurs on Sup Forums making the manga threads short but relatively civil. Still want manga board though

If only we took the Sup Forums /m/ model instead of the Sup Forums /jp/ one then there would be nothing stopping a manga thread.

The resident /a/utists here throw a fit if a manga or novel takes precedence over the anime. From my experience it is because they are illiterate and have poor reading comprehension. I'm not even being rude. Simply stating an observation.

Can't debunk that because manga never took precedence over anime. Even the popular ones are obscure in comparison to your seasonal series.

Unless the manga gets an anime, but that's less about being territorial and more about animefags being animefags.

Colton Nelson

The problem is that the vast majority of LNs, VNs, WNs, etc. with any kind of fanbase or smidgen of artistic value are going to get a manga or anime adaptation. The existence of an adaptation, no matter how irrelevant or ancient, justifies making a thread on Sup Forums. The number of series that don't fall under that umbrella is small enough that most people don't need to check /jp/ for anything.

If you don't see the trend, boards are pretty much split because a subculture of the board becomes too big and disliked. For /v/-/vg/ it was the generals. For /tg/-/qst/ it was the quests. And so on.

Nobody to my knowledge dislikes manga discussion on Sup Forums.

Isaac Cox

Lincoln Sullivan

We do however need /ag/.
Every season there's a new general that gets stuck and they refuse to just accept that no-one wants to discuss their shitty show anymore. It's only a matter of time before there's more of them than regular threads.

Wyatt Moore
Wyatt Moore

no one hated the history threads on /pol/, /int/, /tg/, or /k/ either

Go to history board
expect Hitler board
get Crusader board

fuck that anime doesn't even have that much content to sustain generals

Exactly. Which is why they should all be nuked or moved off-board, I don't give a shit either way.

It's not that I disagree with you, but can you name that many?

Mason Rodriguez
Mason Rodriguez

not like general behavior will stop because of a new board either

we already learned that there's no difference between one big general and several threads made at the same time because the fans don't want to end the party just yet. We also learned that there's no difference between them and the several threads made to complain about the other threads and their fanbases (A Type-Moon hate thread is still a Type Moon thread).

No worries user, that post was a troll anyway.

Josiah Murphy

SnK, Monster Musume, Schwarzenmarken, JoJo (which I know is currently airing but they keep it up regardless), HxH, Overlord, and Yuyushiki make a thread every tuesday, but they manage to keep it up for nearly a week with disgusting blog posting everytime it's about to die. There are probably more I'm forgetting.
Then factor in the fact that there are all the normalfag shit like Dragonball, Yugioh, Naruto, OP, etc, and THEN factor in the generals which don't even belong here like DJT and sad panda and it's just becoming out of control.

Those are all ongoing series they have a right to be here, except for Yuyushiki. Dragonball, Naruto and OP too, even though you're too elite for them.
Also mods have said DJTs are fine and I can't imagine what anyone would have against sad panda threads.

Kayden Brooks

A translated manga chapter is posted then the thread dies. They're harmless. They'll be over in around 70 days or so.

Elijah Parker

I don't disagree, the problem isn't discussing the series but having a general. Even if it's ongoing there's only so much you can discuss about the current content. For LN's like Overlord it's literally months between releases, you don't need a thread up 24/7. Instead it becomes about blogging, e-celebs and making copy-pasta to post constantly rather than about actual discussion of the series.
Also, Muv-Luv is a game, that shit belongs on /vg/. They actually have a place they can take their general and they don't.

What's wrong with it being here? I don't personally read that shit but I don't care if I see a thread about it.

Muvluv has an anime airing right now but I do agree that 'generals' should only exist when there's new content. But that's up to the posters to enforce.

How? Spamming them is bannable, reporting them gets you warned. It only takes a couple of autists circlejerking it to keep a general up 24/7. Without moderator approval there is literally no way to get rid of them.

I honestly wish there could be enough anime generals to warrant a new board. That way, the general threads could be sent to that board and Sup Forums would be clear of Naruto, one piece, bleach, yugioh, muv-luv, HxH, fairy tale, overlord, Idle activities, pretty cure, osomatsu-san, Eva, etc. I personally love a few of these, but the threads are up 24/7. I think the problem might become Sup Forums losing enough traffic to make it turn into /jp/ tier speed.
