I hope I'm not being that guy. I only want to make this because I'm a huge otaku and the show was influenced directly from some of my favorite animes. Animes like Black Lagoon, Trigun, and Cowboy Bebop. I also can't think of a better way to show the series directly to anime fans. I make the show on my own in my room, it's been really hard finding an audience since I'm just one dude with no money, and no initial popularity.

It will be interesting to see how this post plays out here... Since it's your own work, then it kind of seems to fall against the personal/self-promotion rule. But if someone unrelated had posted the link to it as an independent series, then probably no one would have said "boo" about it.

I think you might be OK, as long as you aren't monetizing web hits...

These aren't allowed:
~ Profit sites or referral link games. These are sites that earn the poster a profit/commission or sites that give points for incoming links.
~ Advertising for profit or personal gain. Links to youtube videos that the poster has monetized, crowdfunding projects to pay a person to make a series of webisodes, or any other form of link that gives personal profit is not allowed.

Allowed:
~Links to crowdfunding sites are allowed as long as they break no other rules (scam/adult content) and are for smaller independent companies creating an actual product.
~Links to music or other art you create is also allowed so long as there is no purchase links/pay for hits involved.

I assume making multiple threads would be frowned upon. If there's going to be a thread, everything related can go inside it. There's also an Artist's Corner forum around here, but it looks somewhat sparsely populated.

In any case, best of luck with your creation.
