This thread is for any information that needs relayed to all group members.

First change of policy:

Anime viewings will now be scheduled on Sunday and Wednesday instead of only Sunday. This is to accelerate our viewing, since a full week seems to be too long of a gap. Everyone seems to have pretty lenient schedules so this shouldn't be a problem.

Remember:

Sunday and Wednesday!

Did you guys all die? I'm going to assume you were all vacationing for Labor Day and that you'll all be back tomorrow. Hopefully our group didn't go defunct after only 2 weeks.

Starting with our next series, I'm going to change the viewing from 1 episode twice a week to 2 episodes twice a week. As in, watch 2 episodes on Sunday, then 2 on Wednesday. It seems like Girls und Panzer is dragging on forever, so I'd like to accelerate our viewing some more.

Any objections?

I wholeheartedly agree with this decision. I feel that the slow pace of how we view anime causes the series to drag on far too long. Personally speaking, I also found it made the anime more difficult to view. I usually prefer to marathon a series no matter how long it is, and can usually get a 100+ episode series finished in a week, give or take. Watching only 2 episodes per week was incredibly slow and I hence found it difficult to get back in the mood for anime at these intervals, but hey, that's just me.

Yeah, Girls und Panzer isn't that great of a series. Normally I'd have a 12 episode series wrapped up in a week or less, so even if it's bad, it's finished pretty quickly. Being forced to watch a bad series for a long period of time is hard.

If we're watching 4 episodes a week, it should only take 3 weeks to finish, versus the 6 we're using now. Realistically, I'd like to cut it down to 2 weeks, but that would put it at roughly 1 episode per day, and I can't guarantee my ability to watch EVERY day. Unless you guys wanna raise it even further to 3 episodes twice a week. I'm sure I can get 2 large blocks of time each week over 7 small blocks. What do you think about that?

I think we should try 4 per week first and see how that does, to be perfectly honest. We can't risk giving our members too much work per week, and if we wish to keep discussions to a per episode basis, then we can't be cramming too many episodes into the week.

Although to be honest, when we first started this group, I thought the format would be that we take a week to watch a series and then discuss what we thought of that entire series. Either format works for me, and I have plenty of free time, as busy as I am lately.

Ok, unless someone else chimes in, we'll do 2 and 2.
