tl;dr

  • Use this thread to ask for any shows that you would like to see discussion threads for next season.
  • Wiki article for additional bot information.

Previous Thread | Next Thread

In place of the normal weekly general thread this week, I wanted to provide an update about a siginificant change to the community that will be taking place soon. Namely, that episode discussion threads for Spring shows and onward will be bot-created rather than user-created as is currently the case for most Winter shows.

The Dawn of the Age of Machines

To that effect, everybody please welcome the newest member of the moderation team, rikka@ani.social, the bot that will take over discussion thread posting duties going forward. If you would like to see what the new discussion threads will look like, you can see one that she already posted here. If you would like more information about how the bot will work and how you can interact with the bot, check out the wiki article I wrote here. If you have any questions or comments, please use this thread to ask me.

Request Spring Show Threads Here

This thread will serve as your initial opportunity to ask for discussion threads to be made for Spring shows. You can see a full list of the Spring season’s shows here. Please make a comment in this thread if there are any shows that you plan on watching and would like a discussion thread to be made.

Exception to the Rules

There is currently only one show that I plan on handling in a way different than what is standard operating procedure for rikka, namely, Delicious in Dungeon. Currently, there have been quite active discussion threads for each episode over in !dungeonmeshi@ani.social and I don’t want to negatively impact a growing, active community on the fediverse. So, I will defer this show’s discussion threads to that community rather than having the bot create separate threads in this community. I will try to make sure that these threads are discoverable from this community though (will be in a pinned discussion index thread similar to the Winter Discussions post currently pinned).

In the future, if there is a series-specific community that is active and wants to run their own discussion threads in a similar way, I am amenable to giving that series a similar treatment. If you currently, or want to moderate a series-specific community for a series that is airing, feel free to reach out to me. I would like to see series-specific communities grow and don’t want to contribute to stifling their growth by sucking all the discussion-oxygen out of the proverbial room.

The New Normal

Going forward, expect a thread similar to this each season in which you can make the initial requests for show discussion threads (1-2 weeks prior to season start). The first show that is categorized as a Spring show premieres on March 20th (Sand Land: The Series). So, user-made threads will not be allowed for that series, or any other series categorized as a Spring show (per AniList). User-made threads will be allowed to continue for currently airing Winter shows as the season draws to a close. After the Winter shows have ended, so has the age of user-created episode discussion threads.

Acknowledgements

I just wanted to add a blurb here at the end to recognize the contributions that both shinobu and chaorace (shinobu’s maintainer) have made to the anime community within the lemmy-verse. It was chaorace’s work on the lemmy fork of the holo project that provided the starting point for the codebase that eventually became rikka. Also, it was the episode discussion threads created by shinobu that served as an entry point for me to get more involved in the greater anime community on lemmy. It is quite plausible that without shinobu/chaorace, anime on lemmy would still be a splintered and disperse community instead of having a critical concentration of active users gathered here. So, I will raise a glass tonight for shinobu and will always remember her fondly.

Also, as always, thanks to hitagi for both being the lead moderator in this community as well as the admin of the instance. They have always been helpful and responsive to my questions and have yet to put a check on my absolute power give me any reason to regret all the time, energy, and donations I have put into the communities and this instance.

    I mentioned it up above, but if you have questions about the bot that aren’t answered in the wiki article, then feel free to ask me here. To kick off the Spring show request thread, here are the shows that I am planning on watching at least the first episode:

    • Konosuba Season 3
    • Spice and Wolf: merchant meets the wise wolf
    • Ranger Reject
    • 7th Prince
    • Level 2 Cheat Life
    • Bartender
    • Appraisal Skill Aristocrat

    I am open to others (especially anime originals) as I expect some of these above to be pretty mediocre based on what I have read of their source. I am more just curious to see an episode or two of the adaptation. Fortunately, rikka has the ability to create threads for shows mid-season if a user requests it via pm. See here in the wiki article for more information.


    Meta update: The next couple weekly threads will have certain focuses…

    • March 25th - Winter wrap-up thread as most shows will have aired 11 or 12 episodes by this time.
    • April 1st - Spring kickoff thread. April 1st will also be the official start of the new rules where no user-created episode discussion threads will be allowed. The bot will fully take over at this point.

    I will of course continue running !dungeonmeshi@ani.social for the second cour of the anime.

    I’ve not even looked at what is airing next season, as I don’t tend to watch in a weekly manner, but rather several episodes at a time with large gaps in time in-between. So discussion threads are hard to contribute to :/

    But Dungeon Meshi is different for me.

    We’ll be getting the last episode of the first cour this week, and boy. Trigger has lined it up with something big. Now is a great time to jump in and marathon the first 11/12 episodes if anyone who is interested didn’t get on the train at the first station.

    We don’t have a weekly thread this week, so forgive me for writing this here:

    Re: Invincible S02e05

    A lot of you are probably watching the animated Invincible series on Amazon Prime, so if you are, please give some love to https://lemmy.world/c/invincible which needs some posts in their episode discussion threads.

    S02e05 dropped a couple of days ago, here’s the discussion thread so let’s get talking about it!

    p.s. I am not affiliated with the mods for that /c

      Yeah, I feel a bit bad about that, but I wanted to give this upcoming change some visibility and I don’t like pinning too many threads or else the fresh content gets pushed further down the page than I would like.

      General thread content is also welcome in this thread.

      Commenting to confirm that all these shows have been enabled. I had to add T P Bon as it wasn’t originally listed in the database yet when I had loaded the spring season into the bot. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. I hadn’t really accounted for shows that were announced pretty late like that.
