I lurk around to get my news and not relying on a single site for info. I usually look at the anime calendar several months ahead to get names and I do some research.

For Gundam related news, I lurk at Gundamguy and Gunjap's blog sites. Their info are quite reliable.

Thanks for the replies, I'll look into those places. Have a question about MAL though, I heard they had a security problem a while back, did they every fix it?





Hey, OP, how DOES ANN treat their community? I don't read through their message boards or anything when I go there; just look at the list of upcoming shows, maybe read some reviews of previous shows, and leave.


From what I've heard, disagreeing with them on social or political things is not allowed: for example, there was some article on Aya Hirano, and some guys / gals were saying how it wasn't surprising she got fired for the sex scandal, because like the Jonas Brothers, she / they were selling their product based upon their image, and when that image for her audience was changed (and she went on to insult the people buying her things), her audience no longer wanted to buy her things. The mods then went on a huge SJW rant, calling the people who were just acknowledging the market realities of the business as sexist, etc., and went on a banning spree.

Then there's one of their columnists, who started cussing out and insulting several community members when a community member told the columnist (whose column is about replying to questions about the industry) that they didn't really address the topic that was inquired about.

Then there's this mess:


http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/bbs/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=2829998&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=150

Starts on page 12, with how the critics on the site reveal they cannot handle criticism of their views, and becomes a shitfest from there, one of the best parts is how hardcore trolled the reviewers, moderators, and site owner get because their egos won't allow for them to admit they could be wrong, so they take the words of a troll over their own community, and increasingly get more vitriolic to their own community, whine about their community on Twitter, don't own up to their behavior, and go into full on Stanley Woo damage-control mode by threatening to ban anyone who points out what idiots they are being and their vile behavior.

It's a stunning display of the sort of egotistical nerd-rage that spawns the stereotype of anime fans of being awkward anti-social morons.

Here, ANN, some news sites who have a twitter, another forum.

I only use MAL as a news site when I'm looking at sales figures.

CR and ANN, but I don't go anywhere other than just reading the news on ANN, I don't interact with anyone there like I do here on CR. CR between the news and forums I will hear just about any news related to Anime or Games from Japan, and the community will either debunk it as rumor or truth for me with little to no fighting about it.

Lately, it's been mainly CR. I still check ANN every once and a while, but since I already spend a good amount of time here, I usually can't be bothered. Also, the bit about ANN being horrible to their community is a truth. Hence why I spend more time here.
