    In a sense,,, your answer is right in your comment. You listed sites that have HUGE galleries or streaming. Now I haven't visited our gallery in some time,,, but I know it wasn't insanely huge or have tons of HD quality images. Also AF does NOT have streaming or video hosting. That's what makes some sites more appealing, they have HD pics and anime videos.
    I'm sure if it's possible to JUST rank the forums,,, AF might have a fairly decent ranking. AF is a forum,,, and they have done a fine job maintaining it as such, especially when some sites get shut down for hosting downloadable or streaming anime episodes.

    The overall answer is that there are hundreds of forums related to anime. To a large degree I think there is room for that in the web. Generally people get turned off by forums that are too big. You just get lost in a tsunami of posts and replies.

    As far as relative popularity goes, I think the strong google pagerank for this forum indicate it's relatively popular among those hundreds.

    Those are content provider sites more than they're forums. Also pron.

    Hmmmm I'm not sure about that. Manga at least seems much more prevalent in book stores and libraries than it ever was. Anime viewership might be hard to measure as people are increasingly relying on web services for shows. Hulu has an ever expanding array of anime availible and I believe they've bumped anime up to a higher teir in their browsing, so that might indicate growing or at least strong popularity.

    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.
    I do suspect that the move to phones for internet use favors formats like twitter over a proper forum. Especially those not optimized for phones.

    Well, anime has definitely dwindled in popularity here. Eight-ish years ago, it was actually considered a pretty standard topic of conversation; there were manga book-clubs at the library, pretty sure there was an anime club at college, you could buy manga and anime pretty much everywhere.

    Now? None of that exists. No stores sell anime or manga at all now; the most popular store in terms of selling the stuff (HMV) at one point had a whole aisle dedicated to it, but over the years the space got smaller and smaller before it was quietly replaced altogether with a comedy movies aisle. The library no longer rents manga, it doesn't air on the TV any more and if you mention it you now tend to get considered words that I'm not going to say because they're inappropriate.

    Now, half of that may in part be due to the recession (this town has kinda turned into a ghost-town since 2009, and HMV went bankrupt and no longer exists) but I'm comparing the popularity and general scope of anime since from the time I joined a forum dedicated to anime (October 2004) to today, and it's a very different place.

    That's just my opinion. In the '90's it was a sort of underground, niche thing. In the 2000's it rose to mainstream recognition, and now it's faded back to how it was. People might consider that a 'fad', really, but I'm not one to judge that.

    Anime was always a solitary thing for me, I only wanted to watch it alone, never with anyone else, and personally I believe that's what anime is meant for - to be watched alone

    since a forum is a social network, it kinda clashes with what anime is all about (in my opinion) and that is - something to enjoy with yourself

    No hentai forum.
    Anime is a lot like sex. Done right it's a beautiful act of creation that brings a little more light into the world. If it's sick and wrong... it's even better.

    That's very unusual. I thought watching anime with others made it more enjoyable. Strange.

    I am strange, but really I don't think it's strange, you're supposed to form love relationships with animes - the relationship is the anime and you. How can there be a love relationship with 3 or more people? you know what I mean?

    Everything has their own popular period. I remember how this forum used to be really lively when I joined in 2005. Now I see this forum not as lively as before. That doesn't mean it is a bad thing, it's just the matter of popular period.

    This site's been around long enough to be in decline.

    You want to see an anime forum that's practically dead? Go look up Absolute Anime.
    If each mistake being made is a new one, then progress is being made.

    The only reason I look at anime anymore is hentai. Rule 34 is awesome.
    The weird part is I can post buff muscle builers and fat guys with boobs bigger than my head, but you can't even post good looking flat chested topless girls.
    Anime is a lot like sex. Done right it's a beautiful act of creation that brings a little more light into the world. If it's sick and wrong... it's even better.

    Good looking, flat-chested topless girls implies lolicon. And lolicon is illegal in many Western countries lol. This isn't a lolicon forum. If it was a lolicon forum, go ahead. Post your good-looking flat-chested girls. But since this forum isn't about lolicon and it is against this site's TOS (Terms of Services) to post lolicon, DON'T POST ANY LOLICON ON THIS SITE.

    So if a girl doesn't have giant boobs anyone who looks at her is automatically a pedophile?

    Then why can't I post girls with giant boobs?

    You can't post girls with giant boobs because this is against the site's rules.

    I tend to abide by the rules of whatever forum I'm on.

    If you don't like the rules of a certain forum, then leave that forum. And go to another forum where your behavior is welcomed and not against the rules of the other forum. Or you could create your own forum with rules that appeal to you.

    Why are you so obsessed with rules?

    I'm confused. Yes, this forum is still relatively popular as far as anime forums are concerned. Hence when I searched for "Anime Forums" this forum was at the top.

    Really if you're so rule conscious, you broke one of the rules by mentioning a hentai title up there.

    The reason why certain sites like this one don't have "adult" sections is because they don't attract the kind of users that are wanted on an ANIME forum. They're normally twisted, perverted and downright creepy types that are openly into that kind of anime. Sorry, but it's true. That then makes said site a no go area for kids under 18. So, you're effectively replacing the under 18s with creepers and whatnot, but not making it more active. And NO, you can't regulate the age that accesses stuff on your site. The lack of an "adult" section is not why this forum is in decline.

    The reason is the lack of willingness to post decent topics and post a reply that took a few minutes to actually read the thread, think over it and post. Most people just wanna do the facebook thing and make quick replies that add nothing to a topic. This discourages people from making good threads because they feel that it's for nothing, so "drop something on the person below you" wins out. It's the social networking generation that is killing forums. Nothing else.
