Hi Natsuko-san.

I'm especially looking for japanese sites, with little to no english text. I feel like I can learn a lot from japanese people discussing anime. I hope someone can help me find one.

100kV5476-san,
Oh, sorry! I've now looked for some information on Google, but it seems people are rather blogging instead of using forum...?
Have you heard of "2ch"? It's a huge community and people discuss about quite much anything. One huge problems of 2ch is that people don't really have "common sense" sometimes and conversations often contain disgusting postings like libels and abuse.
I don't really recommned 2ch, but you might want to give a look...?

Hi thanks Natsuko-san.

I actually tried both 2ch and 2chan before, but I didn't like them. For the same reason I don't like 4chan. The replies are too random and usually unfriendly.

By blogging do you mean through social networking sites like facebook and twitter?

I'm quite surprised that forums aren't that well known to them.

100kV5476-san,
I know; I was surprise too. But to be honest, when I googled it, I even didn't know what to type in Japanese if I want to type "forum".
That's how less I don't know? Or, that's how less common the forums are among Japanese...?

When I wrote "blog", I meant more personal bloggings, not social networks.
It of course could be, like facebook and/or Twitter, but there's "ameba" blog (ameblo), for example. I believe people prefer writing blogs and talk about any topic with people who come and visit their blogs.
If you write "アニメ ブログ" to google, you'll find quite a many lists of blogs about anime/manga. :wink:
