All I can say is that I've really enjoyed the /a/ board for the past few years and its userbase. I'm not sure why Moot seems to think it was so crap, but I really didn't mind most of the off-topic chat and Touhou or whatever. The good thing about /a/ was that it was funny and had an interesting userbase, not just because people posted images of anime and talked about them. I mean, I know it's called anime & manga, but there'd be no fun in using it if it was too rigid. It's become slower and a lot less interesting.

At the moment, it's less "discussions about anime & manga" as it is "a place for fans of anime & manga to discuss". I guess you're heart's set on the former, but I'd much prefer the latter.
