    Default If anime is so popular, why is this site so unpopular?

    When I first arrived at this forum, I expected it to be much more popular. But unfortunately it is not. Why is that the case? If anime is so popular around the world, why is a forum dedicated to it (called anime forums) so unpopular compared to other anime sites?

    I wouldn't go as far as calling this forum unpopular. Lol, no need to push it man. Anyways, answering this question is like beating a dead horse, but you could try asking that Naru Osaka this question.

    According to Alexa.com this site is ranked 200,000th most popular site in the world. That's not that popular compared to sites like CrunchyRoll, Sankaku Complex, 4chan, g-e.hentai.org and other anime sites...surprisingly I just thought this site would be much more popular given that it is called anime-forums.

    I was expecting a forum about anime to be more popular than just 200,000th on Alexa.com, but I guess popularity is not positively correlated with popularity. Sure this site may not be uber popular, but it is sure a good site. I just wish it had a bit more activity than it currently does.

    Anime is not as popular as it used to be. Simple as.

    Also, things like Facebook and Twitter. We didn't have those back in 2005-2008. People actually had to use forums to discuss stuff, instead of typing like headless chickens on a social networking site.

    At the end of the day, who cares how popular it is in the ranks? I've only been around here for a few weeks and I like the joint.

    A lot of good points have been brought up, so I guess I'll just be redundant here

    When Tetsanosuke and I joined back in like 2006? It was pretty booming. Coming back, yeah I noticed it's not as crazy booming but that doesn't mean this place isn't good. I still like it.

    Plus I think the RPG section is one of the most organized I've seen. I really enjoy the rules LPS set up; it's really efficient.

    So I say forget the rankings, if you're enjoying your time here who gives a poopy about "popularity".

    Default Re: If anime is so popular, why is this site so unpopular?

    Anime is popular, but it's not quite mainstream popular anymore - you have that crap Naruto and the latest season of Pokemon (and maybe One Piece), but you don't have the same degree of popularity as InuYasha, the first few seasons of Pokemon, Cowboy Bebop, the 2003 revival of Astro Boy, the Digimon series or even Perfect Blue. Back when Ghost In The Shell came out, Conan O'Brian visited a dubbing booth to dub gag dialogue over an out-of-context scene from the film - you will never see that happen again on a fairly popular show, ever again, because anime has been established in the public mind as kiddy bullcrap due to Pokemon's explosion everywhere, and the slew of shows brought over in that craze that were either made for children or dubbed and edited in a way so that they were.

    Anime lost what credibility it did have when the slew of "serious" shows like Cowboy Bebop were rejected in favor of brightly colored series meant to appeal to kids. Throughout the 80's and 90's there were a few spikes and build-ups, but the late 90's and early 2000's were when it all culminated within the public eye. Now I'd say anime enjoys a following about equal or greater than the mid-90's due to greater communication between Australia, the UK, Canada and America and Japan, allowing those interested in brand new shows to translate and view what they want - however, compared to those years when anime was the big new craze, the amount of people experiencing anime has dropped significantly. Anime no longer has mainstream credibility, and this forum in particular offers little except discussion of anime and other things - which other anime websites take care of themselves - so the already large-but-not-gigantic anime crowd don't really see a use for this place.

    That's my thoughts on the matter, anyway. I don't mind though, there are some anime fans I would rather never interact with, and this place is usually full of cool - maybe the prospect of all the writing associated with the forums and chatroom scare off the nasties.
    I'm a regular on chat. Come on in, we don't bite.

    ...much.

    Default Re: If anime is so popular, why is this site so unpopular?

    It's very sad that so many sites (including this one) have to provide links to Facebook and Twitter just to be seen as popular by most. Not that popularity is everything of course... Hell, Ibiza is popular; X Factor is popular; FIFA 20XX is popular; Miley Cyrus is popular; Naruto... oh sod it, you get the point.

    General Statement: People who go on the notion that "it must be popular to be good" are likely to avoid ever engaging something until it's seen as popular by enough people; however, this creates a catch-22 situation, which then tends to trap so many new, or later down the line, "less popular" sites. If "they" don't see a site as popular, they will likely avoid it; but then, if no one gives that site a chance in the first place, it never gets popular.

    Jus' sayin'...

    I think a simple over all point to make is that it's quality over quantity. I'd rather hang with a smaller but more enriched community and a big community where gaining an identity is difficult.

    I would like to point out 200,000 in the world out of how many trillions of sites on the net? Makes it pretty popular all things considered. Especially when at least 100,000 of those sites are probably porn sites. I would think we're doing rather well all things considered. As Ranshiin said, anime isn't as popular as it once was. There are several people here that don't watch it but still visit.

    Anime Mainstream or Even Anime Forums? - Popularity is a double-edged sword if there ever was one. What we want isn't what we get when it comes to mainstream stuff, and I get the impression that what we want is for it to stay they way it is, but become more widely accepted and popular for what it is, which is unfortunately probably impossible, or at least it will be for a very very long time. I want Anime in it's entirety to stay as it is, but to not be looked down on for being "cartoons". Even then, too much?

    Sadly, anime was never "that" popular. We had a big spike in the 90's and early 2000's, but nothing really significant. But that is a good thing in my eyes. Think about it, do you really want anime to go mainstream?

    Astro Boy, Digimon, Poke'mon -All these are extremely childish anime. Not showing how complex and divulging some anime plots, stories, and the depth of character development can be.

    Anime doesn't have a greater following, if anything it has died off more. CartoonNetwork used to look at outside sources for anime, which is where DBZ, Gundam, Naruto, and other shows came from on the early afternoon block of Toonami. Now a days, we have Regular Show, and Adventure Time which are in house cartoons and CartoonNetwork no longer needs outside sources. Anime/Manga is struggling a bit in the western area, which is why we have Lolis, and manga like Fairy Tail Ch355 which was basically just a porn. To get a certain type of audience. Fanservice isn't that bad, as long as it doesn't destroy the story. We need more AoT shows to be aired on TV for Anime to ever be mainstream or extremely popular in the West.

    The site is dead, it's been established many times. It's still a good site to hang around every now and then.

    It's not hard, you just gotta get involved and stand out.

    Standing out it's not even hard if you get involved.

    The site itself is not unpopular. It's just inactive. When people see how little constant members there are, they get discouraged and leave. It can't really be fixed unless it gets more active again.

    Comparing this forum to others I am on (also anime related), Its not too much more inactive. We have less active people but the topics move at almost the same rate. I feel there is only so much we can talk about one topic. Especially anime, until the new releases.

    Anime forums like My Anime List and Anime Planet seem to be popular, but I think that's due to them having the anime watch list option.

    This site was popular, on the forum and chat. Chat used to have a minimum of 50 people in it at all times. Good ol' days..

    Now a days, you have people posting interesting threads getting 5 or 6 replies at most, and over 300 views. The completely irrelevant threads get the most replies. Want to get noticed or replies, post something stupid about (insert thread here). God forbid anyone has an intelligent conversation. IMO

    I consider myself an old timer here. I've been here for going on 8 years. I think the rules have gotten even more stupid and people can't take jokes anymore. Case in point: No one is in chat anymore. Hardly at all. People need to stop being so full of themselves.

    Yep. About 100,000 are porn sites.

    And I happen to be one of those people who visits this site yet I rarely ever watch ANIMU.

    I remember back when I was in high school this place was busy. Sure, it has slowed down quite a bit, but that doesn't mean that there aren't things to discuss here. A lot of my conversation does happen on facebook, with questions about cooking with certain things or parenting. I'm trying to get back into the swing of things here on the site, but hey, at least I'm back.
    There is no absolute right and wrong. People judge as right what they personally consider pleasant, and judge as wrong what they personally consider unpleasant. Convincing others of what is right cannot be equated with teaching the Truth. It is just teaching others to agree with you. It is not about putting an end to error, but putting an end to opinions contrary to your own perceptions.
