Manga and anime are very popular entertainment nowadays. They have huge audiences, and lots of diehard fans of lots of different mangas / animes. Ways that this could bring more traffic / users;
Just thought you should consider it.
- RP. Lots of people like to RP manga and anime, so a forum would bring more members.
- Media. Lots of people make specific AMV's, anime related avatars and sigs, lots of fanart, etc.
- The manga / anime community is getting as big, if not bigger, than the gaming one. Also, lots of gamers enjoy manga / anime.
- Take a look at some of the most popular of these sites:
- Anime - theOtaku.com
- MangaFox's Online Community - Powered by vBulletin (Look at amount of members for a purely manga site. If we have some good search engine friendly content, we could have tons of users, like this)
- Anime-Forums.com :: Anime forums community discussion forum - Powered by vBulletin
- And MANY MANY more. Us and our competitor site MM-Owned are probably up there in the biggest WoW communities. All 3 of these sites have more members than us, and 1 has 100k less than MM-owned. Pretty good imo.
