----------------------------------------------------- Master List of Anime Related Newsgroups ------------------------------------------------------ This is a list of anime-related newsgroups on Usenet, based on a series of postings to alt.fan.bgcrisis on 20-21 August 2000, research by the new maintainer, and submissions to the original maintainer, Rob Kelk. Note: Newsgroup names (blue words) below are hyper-linked to take you directly to the actual newsgroup, in most cases. The short list... rec.arts.anime.misc -- The primary place for discussion of anime on Usenet. (Both English-dubbed and the original Japanese versions.) alt.binaries.multimedia.anime -- The primary newsgroup for fan-subbed episodes of recent anime from Japan. alt.binaries.pictures.anime -- Occasional posts of wallpapers, episode screen captures, and promotional posters. rec.arts.manga -- The primary place for discussion of manga on Usenet. Current manga in Japan is the main topic here. alt.binaries.pictures.manga -- The primary newsgroup for fan-translated chapters of recent manga from Japan. alt.binaries.games.anime -- The primary newsgroup for anime related games. alt.binaries.sounds.anime -- The primary newsgroup for anime related music and soundtracks. The erotic short list... alt.binaries.pictures.erotica.anime -- Fan-published erotic manga parodies of familiar anime and manga and original stories as well. alt.binaries.multimedia.erotica.anime -- The primary newsgroup for hentai anime videos from Japan. (Videos are often Japanese language-only without subtitles.) There are many, many other anime-related newsgroups in many different localities and sub-topics and some for specific shows but, most are often quiet compared to the above newsgroups. Some of the rec.arts.anime sub-groups as well as other anime video newsgroups do have some activity of note. Therefore, we will move onto them next. rec.arts.anime.creative -- Fan written stories based on popular anime. (Fanfics) rec.arts.anime.fandom -- This topic has mostly been absorbed into r.a.a.misc. rec.arts.anime.games -- Discontinued. rec.arts.anime.info -- Anime convention and other announcements. rec.arts.anime.marketplace -- Buy/Sell/eBay ads go here. rec.arts.anime.models -- Discontinued. rec.arts.anime.music -- Discontinued. alt.binaries.multimedia.anime.d -- Discussion of videos and software needed to view them and posting guidelines. Requesting posting of episodes and series is best done here. alt.binaries.multimedia.anime.raws -- Used for posting of untranslated anime. alt.binaries.multimedia.anime.repost -- Intended for requested reposting of single episodes that have been recently posted in a.b.m.a. Also, to be used for posting of very popular long running anime series that are frequently requested to start from the beginning. alt.binaries.multimedia.anime.highspeed -- Intended for the posting of more than 2 episodes per day of any series. Often in blocks of 6 episodes per day. alt.binaries.anime -- Not much used nowadays although anime bittorrent files have been posted in the past. And now the Master List itself… Listed by subject: --------------------- Anime (General) Binaries Anime Series Foreign Languages Miscellaneous Format: --------- Newsgroup Name (with link to it on the website.)
