Thumbs up Sunday Anime Party

What
An online anime party where viewers get together to watch an anime on IRC.

Where
#animesuki IRC channel on irc.mircx.com

When
Every Sunday @ 2200 UTC. (Changed from 2100). Time zone converter

How
1)We determine what to watch beforehand.
2)Each person downloads the anime episodes separately during the week.
3)We gather in the same channel on IRC.
4)Everyone loads the same anime episode on their favorite media player.
5)The MC (me) counts down to zero.
6)Everyone starts their media player at the end of the countdown.
7)Each of us read and write comments in the channel during the show.

Simple?

Key
AM = Air Master (HQA&N! or AJ); FMA = Fullmetal Alchemist (AKeep&ANBU); PMK = Peace Maker Kurogane (AonE); BF = Bottle Fairy (HnK)

To avoid translation differences and timing issues I suggest we try to agree on fansub groups here

My suggestion (just because I have them and didn't notice any major flaws yet):

PMK: AonE
FMA: AKeep+ANBU
AM: no clue, didnt watch any

The following link will preset the time converter to 21:00 UTC, so you only have to select your timezone at the right box ("To time zone") and press "Convert"! Saves a few seconds
Time converter preset to 21:00 UTC

Cool link, JustAnotherFan. I'll add that to the first post. As for the choice of fansub groups, here's my selection:

PMK: AonE
FMA: AKeep+ANBU
AM: HQA+N!

mIRC is just one of the many IRC clients you can use on Windows. I don't have suggestions right now but I'm sure others can give you some. Obviously if you are not on Windows you won't be using mIRC at all, but the clients available for that operating system.

I used to have tons of messengers open because all the people I know are scattered all over the place using different messengers so I have to keep them all open...
I switched to Trillian... its great! I have one main chat program open instead of 5 open (YAY I can see my desktop now thank goodness!). Its kinda like a all in one chat program. http://www.ceruleanstudios.com/ You can find it there... and they've got tons of skins... hehehe... I'm a skin freak. I use IRC on Trillian and it seems to work ok though it doesn't have all the features mIRC would have... so in that aspect... it kinda sucks... decisions decisions...

I think this is a good idea, but isn't chatting and reading subtitles going to be a bit hard to do? I mean, if you've already watched the anime episode before, then you will pretty much know whats going to happen and can freely talk about it. But if you are watching it for the first time, it will be difficult to discuss and read at the same time...

plasmasword001: Well it's a skill we practice each week. I usually have my IRC channel window maximized and my media player set to always-on-top at the top part of my screen. I can see comments scrolling up from the bottom of the screen. Quick glances at the IRC window will give you an idea of what people are talking about. Responding, well, that's gonna take your attention away from the show a bit, but you do not have to concentrate fully on the show right? If you read subtitles quick you have some time left to type.

Some of us do watch the show beforehand. I don't know about them, but I prefer to watch it the first time. I have such a backlog of anime that watching an episode twice isn't worth it.

EDIT: Oh yeah, during the party we don't actually talk that much, but only briefly comment on something we see or type "lol", "XD", "hahaha" during funny moments.
