I'd like to start an online anime watching club of sorts

So here's the short of it:

I'd like to watch a simulcast with a select few other people, and discuss each episode as they come. Sort of like an online book club. I'm looking for like-minded peers. i.e. people between the ages of 25 and 35. Ideally about 5 people would do.

I'm not super strict about age or the amount of people, but I'd like to keep it small and manageable, and prefer people close to my age (30) so I can more easily relate to them for side comments, references, and whatnot.

I don't think there's any private sections here, other than plain Jane PMs, so I may want to take the discussion to a 3rd party IM service like Skype.

Any takers? We can iron out all the details when some people have shown an interest.

Oh, and this isn't limited to a single simulcast. Once we finish a series we'll start another, and another... I just would like to have some reliable people for discussion, since my irl friends aren't into anime.

you could just make a private group and discuss in there.

It seems you just want it to be private.

It seems to be more about discussion to me, of which I've no idea beyond the word "simulcast" of what your plan is.

But it soulds like we'll all be skyping and watching the same anime at the same time, which sounds reasonable and quite fun.

I've been looking for a group to discuss with, I feel a lot of anime work far more as a group-watch than solo watch, and my friends tend to be the solo-watcher types.

So I'm highly interested and very easy to get a hold of, unfortunately I am but a meager 21, so I'm not going to understand 80's jokes as well as you do.

I'm also far less likely to be married.

That said, I don't think we have too much difference thanks to age, but if I was 19....ooh boy. I can't even understand these 19 year olds, what do they mean they've never seen Dragon Ball Z? Did they grow up under a rock? Edd, Ed, and Eddy, Dexters Lab, Samurai Jack, Power Puff Girls, Toy Story 1 and 2! Bug's life! Yu Yu Hakusho? Case Closed, Lupin the 3rd, Eureka 7, Paranoia Agent, Trigun.

What do you MEAN you've never heard of a Super Nintendo? How could not have played Megaman X? And you're saying you didn't play Mario brothers 2?

Kids these days.

I've got skype and I'll be glad to hand you my username, I keep it turned off when not in use however, enough beeps while watching some shows. I've got a wide interest in Anime so any series you bring me would be fine, altho I tend to insult the hell out of reverse Harems, and I talk a whole lot. But Mecha to Magical Girl, Shenien to Shounen, Harem to Historical, I'll watch it with yah.

So, got references I'm to young to understand?

I am also interested however due to my work schedule I might have to miss sometimes it just depends on the simulcast times. Send me a pm of your skype name.

This idea is intriguing. Don't usually get to discuss anime with others since none of my friends actually watch any. I'll join to see what it's like, but I can't guarantee I'll stay forever. Send me a PM of your Skype info and I'll happily add you.

I agree with AnimeKami that starting up CR group for this might be the way to go for organizing this and as place for at least some of the discussion.

Since this thread is more of a personal thread, I'm going to close it, but if you create a group you can then advertise it in the Promote your group thread:
