Because every MMO forum needs it's containment thread.

Stealing from Tea's OP.

If you're a musicfag, here have some more links:

Everyone's familiar with Josh's music.

josh's anime sheet music collection

Probably the most completely collection.

Ichigos is pretty popular as well

Ichigo's Sheet Music - Game and Anime Sheet Music

Anime Sheet Music for Piano - PandaPatrol

I recently happened across this little site. It's not in English, but it has quite a lovely collection of VN OST transcriptions.

‚Ò‚±‚̃XƒRƒA `Šy•ˆƒTƒCƒg`

Another useful resource - anime directory, recommendations, characters, details of anime, keep track of what you've watched, etc. often called MAL. Voting system, genre, studios, etc. Useful to find more things to watch. - similar to MAL - database for visual novels - similar to MAL. Also does manga as well. Approximates how much anime you've watched.

animenewsnetwork - useful for news/updates/information. pretty decent resource for information. encyclopedia of anime, manga, etc. - new releases of just about everything, sometimes called TT - one of the best for finding torrents that have seeders. yeah they're that good. No licensed anime/manga though. bakabt also has lots of OST collections as well.

useful for music as wel - from TT, also has DDL if you really want to


only if you're desperate and cannot download. for releases

aaaaaa fuck it

Just about everything you need. onemanga is now defunct, but I think everything else about this is accurate. Disregard the parts talking about /a/, but it's a useful pictorial guide.


Really can't find anything to watch? Try these. Even sorted out by category, approximately, for your viewing pleasure. Kind of old, but still valid.


Want to read some manga? Here you go.


How about light novels?


Also, BakaBT has torrents for archived versions of the translated light novels as well

If you like visual novels, and/or want to start reading them.


Also relevant for updates and stuff

DDL site for VNs, if you don't feel like torrenting. EDIT: nevermind, since megaupload is dead, this source is now irrelevant.

Other guides of various utility,

RSS feeds and torrenting


Why you shouldn't stream. Really


MPC + Hi10P support. installation information, etc

I went to a few of the sites and they're all websites to obtain Chinese cartoons illegally. Please stop pirating and support the industry by subscribing to Crunchyroll. They give back part of your subscription money to the studios.

Downloading is illegal and does harm to the industry. You wouldn't download a car.

Thanks for reading.

I wonder if this place supports webms

Also pick up the Tokyo Ghoul manga instead of the anime.

Oh, I'm also reading the Tokyo Ghoul manga. I like the anime better in this case, though.

Also, I believe Flash is currently using webm for showcasing the character's skills in the 'Classes' link.

I couldn't deal with the censorship. I dropped the anime when one scene was literally all black.

I find cloud censors, steamy smoke censors and such are minor things.

Also, I just finished watching Tokyo Ghoul's final ep today. Epic as always.

I just finished reading the manga as well. Man ... final chapter is the definition of cliffhangers. So many unsolved mysteries.

I read tokyo ghoul manga first and then started watching the anime. And i must admit the fact that i am literally hooked to it. I'm amazed how they have made the characters so lovable. I'm on season 2 and hope that Kaneki and Touka come in a relationship soon. Can't wait to see how they have portrayed it in the anime!!
