That is why you need at least the filtering capabily of
Thunderbird but most action is down in the rec,arts.anime.misc
and rec.arts.manga. Most of the posting is on other media
like private blogs and Facebook. Maybe Reddit. Usenet
is social enough for me. This group was pretty much
dead when I started following anime and manga, but I
am conservative and try to keep following any group
I have an slight interest in.
Some of the Fan Fiction was really great like
Kimagure Orange College and a few others with crossovers
between anime and manga.
